    New from Tennessee

    Just wanted to drop by and say hello. I got a 22.5" Weber kettle grill for the Fourth and just made some hot dogs and burgers. I stumbled on this site trying to find the best way to light charcoal and realized I could do so much more with the grill. So far I've tried to grill at least twice a week and try something new each week. I'm hoping to work my way up to doing a brisket for Christmas. I was more than happy to support the site for the cost of a cookbook. I've gotten a ton of usage out of it already. Keep up the good work guys.

    Welcome Trash! Please check out my Welcome letter and tips post on how to create your sig. We love stories like yours. Have you tried a pork shoulder yet? What thermometers and accessories do you have? (These are great things to put in your sig=)



      Weber kettle as a gift. Gotta love that. Welcome and thanks for the support.


        I haven't done any pork yet. I was born and raised in the Houston area until I was 14. I'm going to have to go against my natural prejudices and have pork barbecue. I'm tempted to start with a brisket and eat my mistakes. I've got a Maverick 732 and a thermopop. I saw both of them on this site. The Maverick has been indispensible for monitoring grill temperature and keeping an eye on the internal temperature of some larger meats.


          TN Trash, I just got a Weber Grill, like you, several months ago and found Amazing Ribs while looking for ideas about how to use it to its maximum capability.

          Read up on the Smokenator! Really helps for low and slow cooking on the Weber.

          Meathead recommends your first low and slow cook should be a pork butt. I cooked an 8Lb pork butt for 9.5 hrs without a crutch and it was fantastic!

            Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

            We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

            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.

            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’.

            Amazingribs.com temperature magnet

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.
