    Would you spin a turkey in zero degrees?!

    hahahaha. Well.... :cautious: I wound up parking the 22 in the "alee" position with my garage blocking a steady 10-20 mph mph wind. I used Kingsford Pro in the SnS. With water in the tank. No roto. I had a really tough time keeping the kettle temp above 225 IDK why. Prob b/c outdoor ambient...

    Would you spin a turkey in zero degrees?!

    Thx for input everyone, I thought about keeping the LP tanks indoors until ready to cook, but at zero degrees…ugh. I may butcher the turkey and cook the breast over charcoal on my new 22. If brutal weather, i have 2 ovens in the kitchen and an air fryer. It may be time to give the outdoor...

    Would you spin a turkey in zero degrees?!

    My (Chicago) weekend menu is (was?) planned to include spinning a 14 pound bird and roast a prime tenderloin, and numerous veggies etc. on my gassers. Now Mother Nature is bringing Snowmageddon and below-zero temps in on Thus-Friday. Wife says I’m nuts and I need intervention from tvwbb!! Thoughts?

    Thinking right or wrong ?

    I've seen recipes in Weber cookbooks for bread, cookies and even cake! Treat it like an oven and don't be opening the lid and peaking too frequently! I would call it grilling I guess. Here's's turkey breast recipe...

    Do KBB get stale?

    I have had a hard time keeping good temps with Slow n Sear 22" kettle smokes using older bags of Kingsford briquettes. I loaded up on KBB over the past year or two and as I get deeper into the stockpile, I get this weird feeling that they get stale, damp, old, or "past their expiration date."...

    Weber Genesis 1200 Skyline grill

    Yep. The first thing in the condiment rack should be PAM original cooking spray. Works wonders. For a day anyway!

    I will just leave this here

    I buy z bar stock from McMaster Carr - only warning is regarding paint. It is not easy to paint aluminum z bars. "Ask me how I know." Now I just leave 'em n@ked. BUT If I really did it right, I would follow these steps: 1. Clean, clean, clean and degrease 2. Sand w successive grits 3. Self...

    Traveler in Colors for 2023 model year

    It's a lot of fun. I am there twice a year, usually for Indy Car and one vintage sports car weekend. I missed the tvwbb Midwest Meet-up b/c I was at Elkhart Lake (Road America) last year. Here's some "travelers" color - Road America in mid-October. America's National park for Speed!

    Chucks down and so am I!

    Chucks are great on the smoker, and like Richard I pull them, earlier before meat starts shredding - AND - I LOVE Trader Joe's Carolina Gold BBQ sauce!

    Greetings from Hamilton, MT

    Hi Lindy, welcome and wow that's a tough nut to crack. Have you thought about a veggie grill pan? Something like THIS? You'd need something low profile, and probably want to avoid those with non-stick coatings.

    Wood for Slats

    Its a soft wood, finished all sides. I thought I would give it a coating of stain sealer prep. Then stain w "Natural." Then I would put on 2 or 3 layers of spar varnish. Lee I don't understand the comment about it being structural? meaning things will be set upon it?
