    Western Brand Lump Charcoal

    A pretty big stack of it at my local Wally. I looked a bag over and see it's from Mexico, so like a member said up thread, it's most likely mesquite.

    Western Brand Lump Charcoal

    We need reviews on how it burns, cooks, and smells!!

    Thighs & Potatoes

    Lol! It's like my Kamado "fried" chicken, only it was cooked on a Weber kettle.

    Thanks! How about some kettle "fried" thighs and corn on the bone from last July?

    Weber grates on the K22

    I had a spare 18" cook grate for a Weber kettle, thought I'd see how well it might work for some direct high heat grilling. Haven't used it yet, but it fits well on top of the fire bowl. I also replaced the stock plate grate with an old center section from a Weber Gourmet Barbecue System. It gives better airflow, and it's nice getting a visual on the ash build up.

    Thighs & Potatoes

    I used my new CGS spider and a half stone for the first time yesterday, they're a great addition to my PB K22. Boneless skinless thighs marinated in Italian dressing, spuds cooked in garlic olive oil. No plate shot, sided with corn on the bone, a very nice Sunday chicken dinner.

    Cooking a USDA Select brisket

    While on the subject of briskets. (I hated to start another thread.) I'd like some opinions on this little 2.24/lb piece I picked up the other day. I've cooked several of Costco's Prime packers, but have never seen marbling like this. It's CAB, but looks Wagyu-ish to me. Must be from the point don't you think?

    The random pictures thread...

    I think I'll go with pecan wood for the smoke.

    CGS order for my K22

    Maybe these will do until I use my new kit. Meatloaf and a chicken. I normally perforate a piece of parchment paper for meatloaf and place it directly on the grate, this was so lean, 97/3, that I went with a pan.

    Engineering genius

    My wife calls me the rubber band man for all the stuff I "fix" with them. If a rubber band or duct tape can't fix it, then it can't be fixed.

    CGS order for my K22

    Yes, pretty damp. I guess they want to keep it damp/humid for shipping, perhaps to help prevent breakage? No cooks today, but I was just out putting it all on the grill, fits like a glove, very pleased with my purchase.

    CGS order for my K22

    Thanks, it just arrived! The stones were well protected and unbroken, but I'm surprised since the box was labeled; FRAGILE Please do not drop, Ceramic stone enclosed, Thank you for handling carefully. That had to be a temptation to some FedEx workers

    Some thing for Kamander Owners and Kamado Owners

    My Aldi had 3 Kamanders today, $249. I'm not in the market for one, but I think there's a good chance these (or at least one) will get a good markdown at some point in the future.

    CGS order for my K22

    Gave up on my jury rigged pizza stone heat deflector setup. Ordered a spider, twin half stones, and a SS drip pan. I was $16 short of the $99 free shipping offer, tried to find something small to add, no luck, but $10 shipping seems reasonable enough.
