  1. Welcome and you found a great place for tips and answers. Love your area, we were just down to Gatlinburg over the fall season. We just loved it and wanna go back. We ended up in NC a couple of times driving the parks.
  2. Glad you found the forum. Great place to learn and share, enjoy!
  3. Ahhhh, the age old debate in BBQ. I'm glad I came back in time for this post. Well, I have had some of the best BBQ I have ever had on a Hibachi and I have had some of the worst BBQ of my life cooked on some of the most expensive equipment money can buy. So, It comes down to the first thing I tell new people to BBQ. Whatever path you take in achieving your BBQ nirvana, get to know your equipment. Knowing your gear is a very personal experience and whether you use a ceramic, offset, gas (booooo, ha) or electric smoker/cooker knowing how to control your temp in your cooker is the key to great BBQ. Controlling the grill temp and the food temp is a largest part of BBQ while the rest is subjective to taste like rubs, injection and sauces. You cant make great BBQ unless the meat is cooked right and that takes knowing your gear.
  4. You have learned the oldest saying in BBQ, "It's done when its done"
  5. Welcome Bob, glad you found us. Jump in and join the conversation.
  6. Welcome and congrats on the new cooker.
  7. Don't drive yourself crazy with the grill temps. The most important part of great BBQ is the internal temp of the meat. When doing a low and slow cook if you are between 225-290 you are OK. Making sure your temp stays steady for the whole cook is also critical for a successful cook. You'll spend your whole afternoon adjusting vents with no difference in results to show for it trying to raise or lower your grill temp for a 10 or 15 degree change. Use the dome therm as a general guideline and spend your time testing your cooler and making sure your beer is cold enough 12oz at a time
  8. Tell us what's on your menu for this weekend. The official start of summer is so exciting I've got a big crowd coming over Sunday. I'm doing Ribs, Chicken and some grilled peppers. We'll do a pasta salad and a cheese plate for finger foods.
  9. Glad you found us. Feel free to jump in and sharing some of that knowledge with the forum. Congrats on the new cooker
  10. Well, 321 or any variation requires wrapping so thats out if wrapping is not an option. Cook them the same as you would on your weber! Not sure why you'd change your style on an Akorn A holiday weekend is really not the time to try something new. Save that for when your in-laws come over
  11. Great cook and super post! Keep them coming
