What do you use? I think charcoal grilling gives the food a lot more flavor than a gas grill.
wood....mesquite (sp?) or whatever.....flavoring steaks or ribs is all in the wood.....by the way....just watched roker (sp?) on the road and he was in new orleans interviewing people that formed a "hot food club" and met couple times a week with food.....when i come back.....i want to form one with you bud.....just prepare some eats and beverage and let the good times roll.......13 years and counting.....
I use Charcoal, I won't have any part of a gas grill!!
I do use chips on occasion also. :grin:
There is a pecan tree in my yard so there are always pecan twigs to use to make smoke.
I'm too impatient to wait for charcoal to burn.
I've got a nice Weber Gas Grill that I use most of the time.
I also have a nice heavy duty smoker. I've only used it once. I smoked some pork tenderloin. It takes all day and constant attention to the fire and heat to smoke something. My attention span can't deal with that.
First off Charcoal for everything...
If I'm grilling burgers and/or steaks I'll use Kingsford regular with about a handfull of mesquite chips soaked in Coors Light.
If I'm smoking a roast or ribs I'll use Albertsons Hickory Charcoal. You wouldn't believe the flavor that those coals give! On top of that I'll use a ton of hickory chips soaked in either beer or a whiskey sauce that I concoct. Keep adding when you add coals.
I would probably soak them in water and whisper the words "Coors Light" while I drank the beer"
Switched to Gas via Weber. The convienence is great and the flavor bars give food a good flavor.
I never heard of a flavor bar. What are they made out of and how do they work?
Yeah, and are they chewy or crunchy?
I'm a texture kinda guy.....
