    First cook with SnS

    The wife surprised me today at 2:45 saying get out there and fire up the grill, informed me we’re having steaks and will I be using the just arrived SnS. No pressure! The coals are now right underneath the grill, which is perfect for steaks and should help with chicken as well. It was a big improvement from prior attempts. One picture was all I got before they were whisked off the grill by the vultures.

        MTurney what kind of charcoal are you using? For 225, I have my bottom vent almost closed, maybe 1/3 open, and the top about 1/3 to 1/2 open. For that bottom vent, you really need to see where the ash sweep handle needs to be while looking at the actual ash sweeps. Most of the area of interest is in the first inch or two of the ash sweep handle movement.

        Mr. Bones I use a leave in probe in the meat and a thermometer to keep track of the ambient temp in the Kettle, both Thermoworks. jfmorris I typically use Kingsford original. Usually I’m good for the first hour but once the coals get about half the way through the SnS the temp spikes. I’ve been keeping the bottom vent barely open, about 1/4, and the top vent all the way open...I’ll try closing off the top a little. Thanks guys!!

        MTurney yeah my top vent when smoking is never more than 1/3 to 1/2 open. That might be the difference.

              MTurney when I go for low snd slow on the SnS I light only a few coals (10-12) on one end, then pour in unlit. Work the vents from there.

                      Placeholder

                      The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

                      Placeholder

                      The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                      The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it.

                      The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                      Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

                      Placeholder

                      The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

                      The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
