    New Member: goudy

    Hi. Been a long time lurker, decided to take the plunge and try and up things a notch.

    Classically trained in Brazil by our neighbors in the art of churrasco. Nothing I love more than spending half a day standing over the charcoal and then sharing 3-4 cuts/types of meat as the sun goes down with family and friends. I prefer charcoal to gas (much to my wife's dismay--she prefers the convenience of gas). Would like to get into smoking but in Peru it isn't a thing, although you can find a few people doing it. I have a little imported barrel smoker we took on an airplane as its own bag.

    What I would like to learn how to do is cook better and more efficiently. Make better use of my fire, spices, and different cuts. Always looking for fun and interesting sides.

    Been using bamboo and mahogany chips as my smoking wood. Our friend planted mahogany trees (40+) as a "retirement IRA" and he always brings me the branches that fall off using the year for smoking. Anyone have any thoughts on that?

    Hope to become an active member.

          We live on the eastern side of the mountains, jungle town called Pucallpa doing non-profit work. Lots of tough cuts of beef, loads of fish, mountains of chicken, hunks of pork and wild game (deer, majas, and gator.)

          One good grill in town, but gets old after a few times cause the menu never changes.

          We like to visit Lima, but its really expensive now to live there.

          I would think bamboo chips would be Ok due to it being grass, but mahogany, whew that’s a tough one. The only use of that I have had is furniture. I’ll be real interested who & what the outcome is of this question. Welcome aboard, eat good and have fun!

                        Huntington Beach welcomes you.

                        Bamboo and mahogany wow. Good to know that if I run out of wood I can throw FireMan cutting board and kitchen table into the pit.

                          Its what I got to work with. I do get good smoke off the chunk charcoal we get down by the river. Once you pick out the odd nail or screw if course. Can even get a bag the size of you delivered by motorcycle if you want.

                          Char-Broil’s Grill2Go x200 is a super-portable, fun little sizzler made of heavy, rust-proof cast aluminum. The lid snaps shut. Grab the handle and you’re off to the party! Char-Broil’s TRU-Infrared design produces searing heat while reducing fuel consumption. A 16 ounce LP gas canister is enough to keep you flipping burgers for hours.

                          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.

                          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!

                          Bring The Heat With Broil King Signet’s Dual Tube Burners

                          3 burner gas grill

                          The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King’s proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills. The quality cast aluminum housing carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

                          The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


                          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.
