    Part of what i love about outdoor cooking are the tools. I have built grills, sometimes for specific purposes. Bought grills, love webers. Have smokers. But i think this one is going to be fun!

    lets share grills, no gassers please.

    ^ Damn. I had a Webber forever then upgraded - maybe not the right term… moved to a BGE.

    Let us know how it works out. Hope to see some fantastic pics in the dinner thread. Lunch thread too.

    All I have is a basic Weber but I did upgrade the grate to cast iron. I think the grates were almost as much as the whole grill. But they both last for years! Love the cast iron grates for getting nice grill marks.

    weber is really all you need. I love mine(s), i have about 6 in different configurations. The rotisserie Attachment is a game changer.

    I actually bought a rotisserie but never used it. I keep saying I'm going to break it out and do a chicken or two.

    Use it Jdubbya! The roto is the killer app among all the gadgets I have bought for my Webers (I have 8, each with its own purpose, or so I tell the wife! :D). Once you try rib roast on the roto (charcoal plus a little oak for smoke) and whole chicken, you'll never do it any other way. Pineapple on the roto - sprinkled with a little cinnamon and sugar - is also a killer dessert with a little vanilla ice cream...T

    Brine it before hand, add a little fruit wood to the charcoal baskets, and you will never have a better TG turkey!

    I'm a solid cook but can't bbq my way out of a paper bag
    Fortunately in Texas all of my neighbors learned to smoke brisket before they could walk
    Truly an art form

    Unfortunately, no finished pics but it was great. Still learning the fire. We also made roasted potatos and roasted garlic in the pizza oven.

    started the grill off with hot dogs for the kids and various sausages as ongoing snacks as well as chicken. Overall Kind of churasco style. The hit was the slushy machine where we made frozees and cherry slushys.

    lots of fun.

    Nice. How long did you let the wood burn before starting the cook? I've grilled starting from wood a few times and it's really a patience thing for me. I know you need Ti wait until they are nicely ashed, but my primitive caveman instincts kick in and I'm ready to start throwing meat on fire!

    started with some big pieces of lump and two big knotty pieces of cherry. Burned it down for about 40 minutes. Could have cooked on the coals for about an hour. Longer cooks i start a second fire so i can replenish coals. This cook, food was on the grill for 20 to 25 minutes. Home mixed Lamb/beef sausage and marinated chicken. Love that bit of flavor you get from real coals, and the adjustable grates are awesome.
