    Only need to grill hot dogs for two!

    I have a Big Green Egg and a Pit Barrel Cooker, both of which are overkill for grilling hot dogs for two people on the Fourth of July, So I added a Weber Smokey Joe to my BBQ grilling/smoking collection today!

    I just turn the charcoal chimney upside down and cook dogs on that. Saves charcoal too...

      I’ve done that before, but chimney is too concentrated heat that cooked fast with no charcoal flavor. Might as well just broil them in an oven. 😆

    Where’s the ambient temp probe in the grill? Where’s the leave in probe for the dogs? You could learn a thing or two about hot dog cooking from Huskee . 😂

      We’re just joking with you. 😂. A while back our fearless leader Huskee posted a pic of him grilling hot dogs with his ambient temp probes in place! I mean, who does that for hot dogs? 😂

      I tossed on a little Secret Aardvark Habanero hot sauce on mine for heat as my wife is not a fan of hot sauce,

    This is the Pit ya know & you have been around long enough that you should have a little more aesthetic order to the placement of the dogs. Nice recovery in the final result. Nice cooker!

      Yeah, the Olympic judges docked me a couple of point on style, but I stuck the landing!

    The Black & Decker Workmate is a workmate for sure. Perfect cook height!

              And there is a difference also. My Jumbo Joe can be ready to cook from lighting until meat on about 3 times faster than my performer can. I suppose due to smaller size. I use the SnS made for each of them in this comparison.

            WTG.

            BTW, what's that red stuff next to the dogs in the buns?

              Love my Joe, got nowhere to put it. I wind up doing the dogs (and burgers) over the S&S.

                Katchup? Really Catchup on a hot dog.
                Either way served with PBR.

                  Never heard of Chow Chow until this post. It is a relish from the South, I guess.
                  Gonna have to give it a try. Going on the shopping list.

                  DogFaced PonySoldier bbqLuv chow chow is usually a pickled cabbage relish. Mrs Campbell's is pretty good, I like the hot version too.

                I love my SJ for the small and quick cooks. Just the wife and me so it comes in very handy. BUT, great use of the Workmate! I never thought of that! I have one sitting in my garage not ten feet from where my SJ sits and it never crossed my mind. Duh.....
                Thanks for that idea.

                  I often use my Workmate as my BBQ prep table. I put a BGE deflector plate under the Smokey Joe to keep it off of the wood.

                Looks good. Nice choice.

                Green Mountain’s portable Trek Smoker is one mean tailgating and picnic machine. But it’s also gaining popularity with people who want to add a small, set it and forget it pellet smoker to their backyard arsenal.

                The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


                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.

Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

                The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


                Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

                The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

                Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


                This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
