    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.

                    HawkerXP, definitely a lack of proper 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!

                        I like your friend already, and think he would fit right in on this forum.

                        He said Im crazy when I talk about lids, and time, and books...

                        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

                        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.

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.

                        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’.

You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.
