    Default What grill or smoker do you use

    While I cooked a few steaks tonight I wondered what kind of grills or smokers people have.

    I have a Big Green Egg.

    With the cooler weather coming down on us soon (NE Ohio) I was curious who else has a ceramic cooker. I use mine well into the cold season.

    I also has an fairly nice propane grill. Sadly it's put to warming duty for large get togethers otherwise it just sits covered up.

    So what do you use to cook your meat?
    “Music has always been a matter of Energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel. I have always needed Fuel. I am a serious consumer. On some nights I still believe that a car with the gas needle on empty can run about fifty more miles if you have the right music very loud on the radio.”

    Tried and true Weber "One Touch". I've had mine since the early 1990s - I occasionally 're-animate' parts (e.g., replaced the handles about 10 years ago). When I finally learned that a chimney is the BEST way to start a hot, even charcoal fire... I think there's (still) nothing better for grilling.

    It would be nice to have a real smoker... might look in to that after full-time retirement :-)
    all the best,

    Webber with Kingsford charcoal. I light the coals by putting them off to the side in a pile then I use a propane torch inserted through the vent holed at the bottom. After about 10-15 minutes, spread them out.

    Same. I use newspaper and a briquette chimney to get it started. One of the nice things about the chimney is that you can actually re-use old charcoal. It's not like charcoal is expensive or anything, but with just the old lady and I, sometimes I hate to get the entire grill going for three hamburgers.

    Chargriller Duo with the side fire box. I've had it for three or four years and have been happy. Although, I'm keeping an eye out for a weber performer sale this fall.

    For me, it is eveness of heat, predictability of cooking, and the grille's intrinsic physical quality. Mine is over 20 years old, sits outside all season year after year and is still rust free. The cooking grate still shines if I actually scrape and scrub the gunk off of it, too :-)

    I see much, much newer (and FAR more expensive) Weber gas grilles on the scrap metal pile at the town dump almost weekly. There's something to be said for simplicity... heh, sort of like single-ended, Class A vacuum tube amplifiers running direct-heated triodes ;-)

    My mom had one when I was a kid, charcoal kettle style. Sat outside year round without any issues, maybe a grate every four years. I've had this duo for three years, covered until the sun killed the cover one year in and it's starting to rust and fall apart. Plus, they are so easy to cook on.

    +1. My Weber is about 15 years old and I wouldn't trade it for anything else.

    My current Webber I bought in 97....not one speck of rust.......like the indirect heat method with a drip pan underneath the meat...burgers and steaks get thrown on an even layer of coals. Had a custom smoker with outboard firebox when I lived in Houston..gave it to a neighbor buddy...it was like giving up an old friend!

    It varies especially regulating the temp for the 1st 2-3 hours...but if you f-it up you'll have jerky on a bone, guests maybe disappointed but who cares 'cause I like jerky

    I smoke while I grill, does that count ?

    Just a simple gas Charbroil, but I'm thinking of a firepit for wood grilling. Something about that open firepit from the camping days that I still crave. Wouldn't mind a nice pizza oven either.
