    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.
    Thats actually store bought charcoal. I actually have a cheap charcoal chimney I use.

    Think I saw on Bar Rescue they used a jalapeno brine on wings. Something I will definitely try.

    I wanna replace my charcoal smoker and charcoal grill. For the grill, I will go with propane and for the smoker, I've decided to go thebarbec.com. Anyone have experience these kind of sites? That have great informative content and reviews. I'm looking for something high quality, big enough to cook a meal for 5 with a bit of leftover but not much bigger than that. 4 racks of ribs or 1 brisket or 1 butt would suffice. I currently use the 18-inch WSM and that's about the right size, maybe something a little smaller could work. Definitely must have a good seal so it can keep the smoky flavor in. there ate so many Electric smokers on the market but someone Prefers smokers that use chunks instead of chips (if such a thing exists). With chips, I may have to refill, and if I'm going to go electric, I rather maximize convenience.

    Get a Weber charcoal chimney for lighting your charcoal.
    No fluid required and ready to go coals in 10~15 minutes using a couple pieces of newspaper to light it.

    I have the same grill and went from propane back to charcoal when my 19 year old Weber gas grill was retired.

    I finally got a Webber chimney to go with the BBQ. My old cheap one was totally wore out. This one lights way quicker.

    Replaced my Weber propane grill with a Weber charcoal kettle...............much better tasting BBQ.

    If you have a bristle brush ditch it for a wound wire brush.
    No chance of eating / swallowing a wire.

    I want to buy a grill, but I'm afraid that it needs a lot of maintenance to prevent it from rusting, or to wash it often. Should I buy a grill?

    The only maintenance I do is flip it over in the garden to dump the ash and scrub the grate once it heats up just before putting food on it.
