I have a probe thermometer and a pyrometer to monitor the temperature. I'll have to do some experimenting this week and get a system down before I spend too much on good meat. I also have some cedar grilling planks that I could chop up and soak for smoke.

The ribs I had in the fridge ended up on my gas grill since I was working and didn't have time to run outside all day.

If I get into BBQ, and then back into brewing, I'll never lose any weight!

He ruined perfectly good food. Guess he was a bit pissed about the swine flu and wanted to dry them out and take every bit of taste of of them

It was more a matter of no available time and the necessity of eating dinner that night. Plus, we've had some nasty thunderstorms whipping through here that last couple of days. I drank some extra beer to help keep the swine flu away too

Right now it's sunny but there's a steady 20-30mph wind blowing! So much for today's grilling. If it calms down later I have a pair of NY strips that need some heat.

Hey Hocky, this Lime guy has potential. I say we give him another chance. We do need to recruit more charcoal guys. But someone should tell him that gas grills are for weeknights and charcoal grills and smokers are for weekends. No excuses!



(BTW, grilling in the wind is a bigger pita than the cold).

Not on the EGG!


Yeah we need more charcoalers. I have been recruiting around here. Have a few ready to take the BGE plunge. We shall see.

Potential firebug


My weekdays and weekends are a bit crossed since I work from home on the weekends. Plus my wife works 7 on/7 off, so she doesn't really have weekends either. I need to retire since all of my friends have 'real' schedules.

HF, are you talking about the green egg smokers? How's that working for ya? I hear they're pretty expensive but do the job well.

Love it. Use it all the time. Works great. As advertised. If lightning ever hits it (and it would take that to hurt it), then I would surely spend another 800-1000 on a new one. Money well spent.

the ceramic cracks in the northern climates. It would be hard for me to spend $800 on a grill that can crack if/when it gets too cold. Hell it would be impossible for me to spend $800 on a grill, let alone one that cracks.

The cook makes the food, not the cooker.
