    Greetings from Spain!

    Hi everyone!

    I'm a spanish guy who has decided to start grilling following the american style. I have refused to follow the spanish bbq (we seriously overcook the meat, well, actually we destroy it, apart that people dont usually put prime meat in their grills) or the pieces of advise of an argentinian friend (who cooks with just a grate, no lid, no thermometers).

    I knew what I wanted. Perfect meat, good quality and science! So I thought that was the States speciality. I bought Meathead's book and I'm loving it.

    Apart from that, I'm starting to cook more and more with the Covid tele commuting and looking forward to start grilling. I will place a post looking for advice for a weber gas grill..

    And what else. I love making coffee, good good coffee and of course, our outdoorspeaciality: paellas!

    Glad to meeting you guys!

    Emilio

                  Welcome from Tennessee. I am with HawkerXP - I would like to know your paella recipe. Believe it or not, I have never had paella. A fault in my education.

                    Welcome to the Pit, glad to have you here! Believe it or not, the Argentinian style grill can turn out some great food, if used by someone who knows what they are doing. But that's a big "if."

                      I love my friend argentinian asados! They are an important part of my diet.

                      The thing is that my friend is not able to teach how he does it. He cooks only by the experience. And always great. I remember one day when he prepared an asado with the grates from an old rain culvert...

                      And also one more thing. He said Im in the dark side of gas grills...

                      Apart from that, I dont know anyone who makes bbq with thermometers and a scientific aproach and I had to choose where to go. So I saw weber, that has full service in Spain, then the american books, and here I am!

                        But let's see what happens when he see the results!

                        PS: One incredible thing about him. He knows how to buy underated cuts for spanish that are cheap and delicious. But Im thinking only in ribeye

                        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 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.

                        Placeholder

                        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.

                        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'.

                        Napoleon's NK22CK-C 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 NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
