    New grill!

    I have been wanting a webber for 8 years so last year my wife bought me a 14" as a test to make sure id use it and I used it a bunch so this year for our 7 year anniversary she bought me a full size one.
    We are having BBQ chicken tonight!

    I'm tired of these mediocre "semi flammable" refrigerants. If we're going to do it let's do it right.
    Unless we change direction we are likely to end up where we are going.

    It is. I used a dab of soy sauce and a bunch of tony chacheres and then brushed on sweet baby rays just before I pulled it off the bbq.

    When you get this all figured out, the Weber will be nothing but the back-up grill. I brought my Weber Kettle to the store. I have a pellet grill and a flat top in the backyard and will never look back.

    I just like a simple charcoal grill. I used to go to the lake with nothing but a hatchet and a metal grate and a piece of seasoned meat and squash and I would build a fire pit on the shore and cut branches and cook over the open fire. I miss that but for now I will settle for the webber.
    I don't however miss sleeping in my car by the lake.

    SBR and Tonies, can’t go wrong.
    If you do a lot of charcoal a chimney is the way to get it started.

    Been using the same weber for years. Recently got a ceramic primos , but yet to try it out. Plan to build a stand for it. Should be better for smoking/slow cooking.

    The Weber Kettle is probably the best grill ever as far as standard grills. When standard is no longer the standard, get yourself a pellet grill.

    I used to use my tire iron as a fire poker.
    Good times.

    I love it and they are not expensive at all.
    I don't think I would ever grill enough to make a pellet grill worth it. Id rather put that money into a flow hood or duct blaster or something.

    Pellet smoker has been on my wish list for about 3-4 years now.

    I’m just too darn cheap to get off the green bills.

    Have several friends that have the pit boss and they all rave about it.

    I have a Weber Cadillac, gas grill(NG), total of 10 burners if you count the side, infrared, and smoke box burners. Great grill, I had 16 burgers on it and still have room for more if I would have crowded them. Works great for family events so you can cook enough burgers and dogs so all can eat at the same time.

    I had a charcoal smoker for a while till it rusted out, then got a pellet smoker to go along with the Weber, but never had a actual charcoal grill.

    I see you're using wood for the fire. When I had a charcoal grille I learned the best way to start the briquettes was to remove the grille, stand up a piece of 6" metal duct, pour the briquettes into the top, and then lift the duct enough to let some air in below it. Then I put lighter fluid in the top and lit it. The metal pipe made a chimney effect so the coals were ready in only a few minutes.

    Since I got a gas grille I haven't used that method in a long time.

    That reminds me, I need to brine some chicken wings again. The best wings I ever had were my first attempt. I brined the wings first, then baked them in the oven, and finally charred them on the girille for a nice crunchy outside. MMmmmm.
