    Pork, Potatoes, and the Pit Barrel

    Back ribs at $3.49/lb. Was able to find a couple of small 2.6+ pounders. Oldest three step-kids are out of town so it is just the 4 little ones and my wife and I. Modified Memphis Dust, and I guess them are Russet Potatoes. The Great-Grate works GREAT!!

      Done. Potatoes needed a little more time. Easy fix. I purposely put less charcoal on one side of the basket to reduce charring on the ends......and forgot about it. Brain child. Still turned out great as I like those crispy ends anyways. Tried less salt. Not for me. Good, but could use an extra little kick. Wife would like some chipotle. Gotta love it when you can still make the best better.

        Back ribs at $3.49? Today, at Costco, they were $3.99 (Salt Lake City, Utah). See my post at "Discount Meat" topic: $2.99/lb. in bulk (55 lbs.).

        I am sure you've already answered this question a thousand times but... Great-Grate? did you just snip out some metal on another size grate or is someone producing this thing? your engineering genius is astounding.

          Steve Navarre on the PBC page toted around the idea. Someone else came up with the prototype. I merely coined the phrase and cut mine own out of a charcoal grate for a 22.5" weber kettle using a dremmel tool.

            Check out my tip#1 I linked above (the red text is a link you can click). Tip #1 shows you how to fill out the signature and also where it appears after you've completed it.

        Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?


        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.

        Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages
