    High in NE New Mexico

    Here at 6400' elevation, grilling is...different.
    I hope to learn some tricks here. Keeping heat at 350○ is a challenge.
    Maybe add a hair dryer attachment to my Weber Performer?
    More holes near the lower for better draft?
    Liquid hydrogen?
    Nuclear briquettes?
    I am here to learn. My pork chops were tender and oh so good. But, I miss a good sear.

    Welcome to TVWBB! Have you tried using lump charcoal yet?

    Welcome! Don’t be afraid to start a thread and post your questions. Personally I can’t offer any advice on high altitude cooking. Maybe the Vortex will help?

    The Vortex? Is that a Dr. Who thing?

    Nope, I read about it in this forums. If you do a search, you can find some posts about it.

    OK gentlemen, my second grilling here went just great. This time, I used my Weber Chimney and filled it, so I had MORE CHARCOAL.
    That did the trick. As a matter of fact, Keeping the temp at 350 was easy!
    Sadly, my steaks cooked quickly, and I grilled 2 perfectly good t-bones well done.

    Next time...I'll kill it!
