    GrandPa Rooster's BBQ Porch

    Hello everyone,

    Grillin, smoking and enjoying friends/family on the porch.

    Been smoking on a Weber kettle for about 20 yrs. After finding this site I ordered the Slow-n-Sear, this should save me a lot of setup time as I used aluminum foil in a similar fashion with a water pan. Have found many good tips on this site so far, and Meathead is correct about those awesome thermometers that come with the grills. Good for checking ambient air temperature within a +- 40 degrees range.

    Back to Iowa about 2 years now after a 3yr trip to Southern Cali. Rough, the apartments out there would not let me have charcoal so I used an electric smoker. Retired it when I got back home.

    Last winter's coldest smoking was 2 Boston's when it was 20 degrees below zero, why - just cause we could. No ice needed for the drinks.

    My youngest son took his 18" Weber to Iraq with him, many enjoyed meat cooked over a fire. They liked it so much he left the grill for others to enjoy when his deployment was over.

    Thanks for the website, have a lot to read and more to learn.

                  I am getting used to the SnS. Grilled a great steak Thursday, reverse sear. Today we smoke chicken breast and boneless pork chops. It is easier than building my usual aluminum foil walls, and a little easier to control the temp. I like the water holding reservoir. Also just received my Thermopen this week. I like how fast this ones reads a temp. I have been looking at this for a couple of months, after reading the reviews here I decided to get it and the lollipop. Looking forward to more recipes, have not tried the MMD yet. Many time just use Kosher Salt about 2-3 hours ahead of grill time then pepper before putting on grill.
