    Friday Night Steaks

    I was just looking at how much the CIG's cost. I like em but don't think I can get myself to spend that much on a grate. I would then have to get the pizza stone and every other accessory for this thing

    Suggestions for tailgate menu for Chargers playoffs

    So many decisions! I'm gonna thumb through the ads tonight too and check to see what is on sale. I think for sure I will add Tri tip since it's only $1.99 per lb right now. I may even try to make some ABT's. Does it matter if I use my smoker or my Performer?

    Jim, I've never tried that. Do they still come out as tender as when you do them low and slow?

    Suggestions for tailgate menu for Chargers playoffs

    Thanks for the input everyone. Joe, I like your idea about a donation jar. I just think my wife would get mad if I did such a thing Anyhow, I'm debating on bringing my performer or the WSM. I know someone usually brings an 18" kettle and I normally bring the Q200 but am thinking this time...

    Suggestions for tailgate menu for Chargers playoffs

    Hi My beloved SD Chargers made the playoffs and I wanted to see if I can gather some suggestions from you guys here. The only criteria is it can't take too long to cook since our tailgate window is only 5 hours. Sucks huh? I was thinking of Tri tip, drumbettes/chicken wings for the grill...

    Where Do I Get Good Lump In San Diego?

    Jerry, the RO at the Walmart here in San Diego is actual lump and not briquettes. They are $5.00 but are only 10 lb bags. Depending on where he is in San Diego, he can still get some of that lump charcoal briquettes over at Home Depot.

    Q 300 feedback?

    Hey Ed, I don't have a 300 but have a 200. I didn't get the 300 since I already have a Genesis Silver B. Here are some answers to your questions. 1. It get's very hot and you can sear a steak pretty good IMO. 2. Not having flavorizer bars is not that big of a deal. I just make sure to...

    Meat for Sale out of Truck

    Our secretary bought some meat from dude in a white truck that looked like it actually had a freezer or something. Poor girl spent like 60 bucks on rib eye steaks and hamburgers. The rib eyes said "Del Monico" or something like that and were only like 1/4 - 1/2" thick. They just did not look...

    Weber SJP vs Weber Q

    I vote for the Q! Just got it this year to replace an older Coleman gasser and couldn't be more pleased. I don't know what took me so long to pull the trigger. I also use this as my primary weekday cooker since it doesn't require alot of propane and very easy to clean.

    Boston butt wasn't very juicy, why?

    I've done them both with injecting and without injecting and have gotten some good, moist pulled pork. The one thing I did when not injecting though is putting the butt in one of those aluminum trays and put a little apple juice in there around the butt. Maybe around 1/4 inch or so. I have...

    Tri-Tip from Jamie Purvance Book

    Chris, I've done this both on my Kettle grills and my WSM. Both times though, I am done with it when it reaches 140. You better rush to Albertsons. I see you're from SD. I bought like 6 Tri-Tip's there yesterday for the 4th.

    Wine Oak Smoked Tri-tip

    Wow! I've been cooking tri tip for about a year now and can't even get my smoke ring that close. Then again, I usually cook it on the WSM at around 350 or so.

    It's only Monday and I already have my weekend smokes planned...

    Larry, It's on sale here at Albertsons for the same price. I usually grab around 6 or so when they are that cheap just to freeze and will probably cook around 3 of them on Friday. That seems to be the food of choice when my buds come over. I either make that one really good or they just don't...

    You're just like me. I start thinking of next week's menu before the Sunday is even over. I think this weekend I'm going to cook a few Tri-tips, some whole chicken's and maybe break out the deep fryer for some buffalo wings.

    I could not find any Weber Firestarter cubes at any HD in San Diego.

    I just got my cubes last week so I should be good for a little while. I usually just use one cube as well and it work's great. No ashes that fly around.
