    Did find some good information meanwhile, and will soon start testruns.

    commented on 's reply
    I will mainly start off with ribs(beef and pork) and chicken. And later or at requests go for more intensive meats like briskets. Need to do several good test runs and find right supplier with constant meat quality.

    Yes, I have seen many people raise from their seats of the terraces when passing.

    I sure plan to do so. But first I have to wake up the Spanish Grill-only community.

    Well, I am hoping that the COVID19 makes people realise that you do not need to hop on a plain and make selfies in exotic and adventurous places. When you can just enjoy yourself in a perfect atmosphere surrounded by friends and family, instead of a load of kids, sales guys, shop owners, part-sharing sales people.

    Correct. I can close the connections to central smoke corridor in between the barrels. And thus isolate 1 barrel for grill purposes. Replacing the 4 smoke grates with one charcoal tray and a grill tray. So multi purpose. And added rotisserie with special charcoal briquettes, lasting nearly 8 hours at a constant temperature.
    I have just had a business meeting with Spain's largest charcoal and biomass producers. Who contacted me to setup a joined cooperation agreement, with mutual benefits.

    Wow, what a rig! Congrats. If you have the time roll that truck and all onto a large cargo jet and head on over to BDL. I'll give you directions to the house. Only 45 minutes. I'll make room in the driveway for it. 😁

    From the photos I assume the grill where you keep the lit coals slides out. Correct?

    Today I installed my rotisserie kit. Also have chicken carousel and flat roast rack.
    Now only need to find a small laundry drum to roast veggies and potatoes. And get a drip tray made up to catch liquids. Total usable spit length is 43.5 inches. So let's see what sizes fit.

    During all this, my 8 year old son grilled me some perfect chicken wings. Thanks Jessy-Alan (Pitmaster-Junior)!

    Now let's see what results I can get out of this set-up. But I am confident it will be a showpiece on whatever party.

    So I am feeling great.

    Truck is in the front. And yes it's a diesel. 256hp, 656Nm and 10-speed automatic.
    It weighs some 2200kg.

    Hi all, thanks for the responses. I will surely try and get more pictures and videos in future posts.
    Yes it's big and heavy. But my truck had no problems in pulling it up the hill with a 10% slope.
    Next week I'm invited to have a meeting with a bio-fuel (pellets and flavoured wood packages) plus a representative of a big hardware chain.
    They asked me to form a corporation to promote their BBQ range by showing the real potential of smokers. As its only grilling here in Spain.
    Not sure what to expect. Hopefully I can make a nice contract during week days and run high end parties during weekends.
    Today I started installing a spit rotisserie for whole hogs, chicken carousel and porchetta or 3 pork bellies.
    So I am on the way to make my dreams come true. That's all I ever wished for.
    But I couldn't even get a license plate, as the technical automotive agency in Spain has never seen one.
    Luckily that part is finally under control.

    Note; admin. Could you add a section Spain to the countries list and move this post? Thanks.

    If you would like to follow our journey please follow like and share #PuraLeña on the social media networks. It would be great for us. And could be an essential part of making it happen. Thanks all.

    Again, the only word that comes to mind when I see that thing is "WOW!!!" Now after catching my breath, that is a work of art, a beauty! Have you weighed it? And are we going to see a diesel truck pulling it soon?

The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

the good one grill
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.

Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
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.

Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

PK 360 grill
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.

Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

kareubequ bbq smoker

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'.

The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

NK-22-Ck Grill
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.
