    Oven cleaning of flavorizer bars?

    Is there any reason NOT to simply stick FB in the oven and run a “clean” cycle? Seems like it would be better than the oven cleaner/ garbage bag followed by washing, no? This is my first, full season, using a gas grill so, I’m genuinely curious! Help me Obi Wan, help me!

    Space making butt smoke

    I needed to make some room in the deep freezer so, this Butt was evicted along with a bag of wings. The wings went into the baby freezer which had to get rid of blue ice to make room there. Anyway, the butt had thawed and I have no room for much of anything. So, I made up a quick rub and went...

    Replacement center for GBS?

    I have a feeling this has been discussed before but, I’ll be jiggered if I can find the thread! Anyway, I was looking at the center of my GBS grate and it looks like I’ve started to go through the chrome plating. Is there a SS replacement center out there? RCPlanebuyer? I saw nothing on Amazon.

    Found a new source

    A new Latino grocery store opened up about a mile away so, I decided it was a pretty morning for a walk down and see what they had. They had some nice looking Flanken ribs so, I’ll wander back and pick up a few and play with those pretty soon, they were $2.99/lb. so I didn’t think that seemed...

    Last straw unless...

    I’ve had Maverick TM-03 timers for over fifteen years, the first one lasted 10, the second, an hour, the third a week, the last one has made it barely a year! Well, that might be a little harsh but, I tried a couple between first and third just to be disgusted with the lousy quality of available...

    Cold, wet, but, not too windy!

    After the less than stellar barbecue from the joint in Grant, AL. Followed by some truly masterful pork in South Carolina, I decided that I really had to smoke a nice butt! Yesterday was as glorious as one could have asked for sunny and 70 degrees. Today, not so much, rain on and off but, not a...

    After years of searching!

    I have been told and told and told that skin on pork bellies are NOT available in Michigan. I’ve never really believed it but I finally googled “why can’t I?” And up pops a place about 40 miles away that offers it right there! I will finally be able to try doing Porchetta! Mmmm, Mmmm, Mmm! I am...
