    100 Briquettes

    Read about that in the Virtual Weber Bullet, link at top of page. Our host, Chris, has a ton of operating tips and tricks there. I used the Minion method for starts when doing low and slow on my WSMs. Don't have them now but learned a lot from Chris.

    Thanksgiving Leftovers Casserole

    I like trying stuff. Last year I wanted to do a leftovers casserole but didn't have enough leftovers. This year I had plenty. I read through a Pioneer Woman recipe and Allrecipes version, took what I wanted from each, and then assembled my version. I built it according to the size of the...

    Smokefire Spatchcocked Turkey

    We had a small family dinner for 5. I cooked a 14 lb. Bird at 340 degrees in 2 hrs. and 20 minutes. It was dry brined for 40 hrs. and hit with an herb butter slather before it went on the top shelf of the EX6. I used Cabelas Cherry pellets. My 30 year old grandson that only eats dark meat...

    Smokefire Lid Handle

    Some EX4/EX6 grills have that problem. My EX6 does but many people don't. I have read suggestions to get insulating washers and insert them between the lid and the handle. I don't remember reading that it solved the problem but it's a cheap experiment. Sorry I'm not more help but I just...

    Back to a One Smokefire Stable

    Yesterday I passed down the EX4 to my 30 year old Grandson. It's his first smoker and companion to his 22" Weber Kettle. I'm back to only the EX6 and that simplifies my life. His parents broke up and his Mom is moving in with us so I need more storage space in the garage. It seemed like a...
