Smokin' In The Boys Room


Last Friday I purchased this new charcoal grill/smoker at SAM's Club. It is smokin'! It took the better part of three hours to put together, but it was worth the effort! I can't wait to fire it up this week-end and cook something. As you have probably noticed this is a charcoal grill. I am a traditionalist. I use hardwood charcoal (no briquettes please) and hickory chips soaked in water for that true smoked flavor. I have never used propane and I don't suppose I ever will at this point.


This grill has a number of really nice features. First of all it has that little side firebox for indirect cooking. This will allow for slow smoking meats like pork loins and beef brisket. In the main firebox there are two charcoal baskets and they are adjustable. You can build a fire in one side and still do semi-indirect cooking on the other half of the grill. There is also a warming tray in the top of the unit. Like I said, I can't wait to fire this baby up! Friday night will probably be burgers for my bride and I. Saturday, I just may smoke a pork loin for the fun of it. I'll take pics of the finished product.

Bond: You live in Memphis! You don't need my help to find good BBQ, but you're welcome anytime the grill is hot!

MamaArcher: Great things will come from here for sure. It all starts Friday most likely.

Sandee: You'd give up a week-end on the boat just for a little BBQ? OK, let me get this thing fire up!

Looks great. We have a smoker too and it makes a great turkey! Takes most of the day, but yum.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and wishing me a happy birthday!

Wooooooooooooooooooo!!!!

Would you believe I've never had my own grill? I've just never had the space for one.
