    • We have two weber kettle grills (one LARGE and one small/average), the SnS and the Weber Smokey Mountain 18" smoker. We use both natural lump charcoal and KNB for smoking and measure our temps with a Maverick 733, thermopen and MK4. Favorite beer depends on what is cooking (alt answer is yes).

    The lemon does not need to be there.

      Use that to make her a martini. May be easier to reason with her then...

      I don't blame you. She is hard headed. The lemon is for tonights chicken piccata. But the martini thing might be a good idea also.

    Is the cooking temperature chart the issue? If so, simply move to the door or the other side of the refrigerator. If the problem isn't the temp chart, I'm at a loss for what is amiss in the photo.

      The chart. The book. She likes everything to look staged as if we were selling the house. I don't get it.

      Oh I see the problem... That basket looking thing on top of the fridge is blocking your ability to open the cabinet doors above the fridge.... Tell her it is easier to get the basket off the fridge and get stuff out of it than trying to open those doors and reach stuff all the way up there.

          If she wants staged for selling, tell her to turn a burner on low and drop some vanilla extract on it.

            I have one too on this fridge too. I view that as my kind art work that I add to the house. I think sometimes you gotta just explain this is how compromise works. Next time she has some idea that you can't stand that's similar in importance tell her she gets a free pass or a gimme.

            Now the book. I don't think the counter is the place for it all the time. You don't want your BBQ bible getting messed up. Close by so you can easily grab it with in seconds? Definetly. There has to be a drawer or a cupboard near by that can relocate its contents in favor a of more important item like your meathead cookbook!

              For the "bible" yes there is a place so it can stay safe and clean. I think I have used up all of my passes since joining the pit. All the equipment. Added counter w/drawers in kitchen. Ect.... But I'll try thanks.

              Mine stays by the side of the bed, it's required nighttime reading. The only time its moved is when I'm cooking something and I'll need it as a reference.

              My suggestion is a fancy shmancy cook book holder! The temp chart belongs by the smoker.

                Oh sure Steve, you just hoodwink us into thinking a member is in trouble. Plenty of effort, time & resources are expired in coming to the aid of "one of our own", and we come to find out it is a complete rouse, just to entertain you & your purported trouble (wife). Well I am glad you had so much fun and a lot of laughs at our expense. You just may have damaged the feelings of many members & put in question future call to actions by those willing to come help other members. I hope you really think about the consequences of your actions. Keep the smoke coming!

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

              Placeholder

              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.

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!

              Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

              Placeholder

              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

              Placeholder

              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.

              Placeholder

              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.
