Still going strong with my Weber kettle. Got me a beer can chicken stand and gonna start doing it that way. Been pretty bad by going to Costco or Kroger and getting their roasted chicken for $5. Makes two or more meals for my wife and I.

Also, gotta try ribs. I know it can be done, just gotta figure out how to regulate it down to 225 and cook and add coals at the proper time

Great thread! Thanks to all for the input.

Always interested to learn new ways to BBQ.

I have a standard Weber kettle and it does OK for our seven member family. I haven't done anything long cooking on it though and have always wondered about other methods - for Summer and all. One day I'll step up, probably when the wife and I are empty-nesters.

We have always had gas - and currently own a Weber Genesis with a direct line to our natural gas hookup from our home. Very economical, and much cleaner than a grill. Our oldest son does wondrous things with charcoal - smoking, slow cooking, the lot. We are fans of heavy-duty marinating and get good flavour with slow cooking on the natural gas that way.

I must admit every once and a while I have this hankering for a charcoal grill --- then I watch my son cleaning and tending to his and I think --- "Naw".

ymmv

Couldn’t agree with you more. I too have a Weber Genesis and occasionally get a hankering for a charcoal grill, but that soon passes. A friend of mine has a Green Egg, but after watching him grill on it I’m not convinced that it’s worth the price or the effort. It’s somewhat the same as wet shaving: some people like cartridge razors (gas grill), some people prefer DE/SE (charcoal grill) and a few people go for straight razors (Green Egg grills). As for me, I’m a cartridge razor and gas grill man all the way; both get the job done to my complete satisfaction with little fuss or ceremony. 8)
