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

    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.

    Igualmente, un saludo desde Aranjuez!

    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. ūüėĀ

    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 #PuraLe√Īa 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 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.

Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. 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.

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.

GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The Infrared†Zone


GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, kill hotspots, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily moved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.

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.
