    Hey Friends!

    Hey Team - from Chicago (Ukrainian Village near Western and Ohio for any locals) I’ve been following these recipes for at least a year. Bought a Weber that I use at my in-laws in Grand Beach, MI. The gas grill at my condo does the job but given my southern roots from Dawsonville, GA (y’all go vote damnit) I find myself using the skillet over the gas mostly (unless it’s summer). Smoking a rib roast tomorrow and joined to literally ask this question so let’s see what y’all come up with:

    if I’m smoking a rib roast and also making gravy per the recipe a la Meathead. And I put the gravy in a pan and then said pan into the Weber grill on the lower rack with the charcoal. Will the charcoal ash not get into the gravy? I’ve got a picky mother in-law here that will let me know when she tastes ash.

    any and all guidance appreciated and thanks for letting me bore you fellas! Greetings from Grand Beach and Ukrainian Village!

                Question: are you two zone cookin? Half answer: nah, don’t worry about the ash in the pan. Not much if any’ll get there. Plus you can make the gravy in the pan & strain any foreign critters out. Welcome, eat good & have fun.


                  Mr. Bones I appreciate the advice and makes sense! Thanks all for the warm welcome. Looking forward to being part of this community.

                            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.
