    Trying something new

    When ribeyes/rib roast are on sale, try asking your local market to cut a small rib roast. Or, you could ask the butcher to cut off a chuck eye ("Poor Man's Ribeye") roast - basically a 4-6" cut - next time they cut up a chuck roll.

    Does anybody know about and/or used hanging kits for a 22" WSM? I've seen one from LavaLock at Amazon, seems reasonably priced.

    Cleaning cast iron grates on Spirit 310

    I've had this weber for probably 10+ years. It's gotten to the point where I can't keep the cast iron grates clean, always some nasty carbon residue. Any thoughts, short of sand blasting?

    Oklahoma > Oklahoma City: Leo's BBQ

    Great write-up and photos! Just wondering what your Top5 or 10 would look like. I live in SW Oklahoma, about 2 hours away from OKC. Always looking for some good BBQ. I have to admit I've been getting spoiled by Central TX style BBQ, but oh them ribs. 22.5" WSM, Weber 22.5" charcoal grill...
