Didn't I once see someone mention that there are grills now being made that are gas AND charcoal?

Yes I bought one for my husband for Christmas a couple of years ago at the last minute. The box said some assembly required, but "some" wasn't the word for it. I didn't have time to have someone from Lowes put it together so my son and his friend put it together all fucked up. It looked good, but we never could get the gas side to work.

RE: BBQ'S



I have to get a new grill. The one I have is gorgeous but it doesn't cook worth a shit, the electronic lighter thing hasn't worked in a long time and there are other bs issues as well. I've been reading about them and I see people raving about a Weber, are they really that good? What makes them so much better than other grills? Doesn't it all come down to the person grilling?

Weber makes a great product. The air flow in the charcoal kettle grill is what makes them special when cooking with direct or indirect heat. Sounds like you have a gas grill though, so if you're planning on sticking with gas I would fail to see any benefit. I had a Webber kettle for about 25 years. Always served me well. The kids got me a gas grill one year for Christmas and I used it for a while but ended up giving it to my son and buying a drum charcoal grill with a side fire box. I really like it the best of any grill I ever owned.

RE: BBQ'S

Remember the old ones that would simply be a black steel bowl balanced on three legs? Charcoal and luck were all you needed to grill the perfect burger.

Of course barely tapping the side of one and then spilling over all the burnt contents of the grill was troublesome and a bother, yet a small price to pay.

Yep, That's the one I had, but I don't remember ever knocking mine over. It was pretty sturdy unless you tried to move it. One of the legs would always fall off and then you're stuck until someone else comes along to help. hah

RE: BBQ'S

I spent a summer working in a resort town grilling pork-on-a-stick over two sides of a steel drum sawed in half and a homemade cast iron grate. It was heavy as hell, hotter than hell, but damn if it didn't make some fine bbq. Had to stir the coals with a claw hammer it was so hot. I'd mix in a little cedar every so often and just cook away, and let the aroma drift down the main street.






Thank god I am oblivious to the opinions of others while caught in the blinding splendor of my own cleverness.

That's pretty much what I have now but mines a charbroiler production model. Cant beat the cast Iron grills if they're properly seasoned. I seasoned mine with bacon grease and then smoked on it for a week with a mixture of hickory and mesquite from the side fire box. NOTHING sticks to that grill.

RE: BBQ'S

My husband just bought this. It's called an Art Flame and it's pretty awesome. You burn the wood in the middle of the pit and it heats up the outside griddle hotter than your mama's ass. I made chicken kofta kebabs and vegetable kebabs. I also tried out a couple of fried eggs on there and it cooked them perfectly.

RE: BBQ'S

Once it's well seasoned by repeatedly cooking on it and keeping it oiled it will turn black almost like a cast iron skillet. Today was the first time I used it so it's still all shiny, but I plan on using it everyday. Beats the hell out of dirtying up my kitchen.

RE: BBQ'S

I want one of those Art Flame fire pits + precision grills so bad. Very effin' cool.

I don't have an extra $2,500 right now. But, if I did.........I'd buy one for the backyard.

The first few things I'd try on the grill: yakitori, asparagus spheres, eggs and bacon, grilled cheese.

RE: BBQ'S

My husband bought it for himself for Christmas because he said no one else was going to buy it for him. Which is true, I'm only buying him some socks.

I'm going to try yakitori and asparagus on there tonight.

I think they have smaller ones that aren't that expensive. He bought the biggest one there is which supposedly cooks for up to 80 people. I don't know who all these people are that we're going to be cooking for.
