BBQ Grilling

I’m an avid BBQ outdoor griller.

Nothing like flavored woodchips to make a meal special...meats, fish, poultry, I do it all on an awesome Weber Genesis. From sloooow cooking roasts and whole chickens, to flash cooking hotdogs and burgers in the summer, I’ve just grown to love manipulating the flavor of the cooking of different foods using the flavored wood chips.

Everyone grills when the weather is nice and warm.

My question is, do you grill in the rain? Easy, peasey on that one! How about grilling all year round? Do you grill during a snowstorm? I do. Love to bring the outdoors inside!

How about it...do you grill through the winter months?

Re: BBQ Grilling

I grill and smoke during the winter months. I have a Lyfe Time smoker built in Uvalde, TX, that I fire up on most holiday weekends using a process that takes up to 12 hours and an unknown amount of adult beverages to produce some wonderful ribs, chicken, hams, bacon, turkey, and what not. Life is good....

I will grill year round but not in the rain. I use my 22" charcoal fired Weber.

Re: BBQ Grilling

My wife was always telling me about her friends who grilled year-round. They told her that propane was the ticket. Under protest I bought one. Used it about a dozen times and threw it away. The only good thing which came out of that grill was the story about how, after we used it for the first time, a bear tossed it down the hill.

I grilled on the Weber last night and will tonight, in the rain with temps in the 30s. I have a large Tommy Bahama beach umbrella protecting all of it!

Re: BBQ Grilling

Of course I grill year round. If I were not able/allowed to grill it would seriously hinder my cooking ability. Hell, I even grill those evil things called vegetables.

Re: BBQ Grilling

I'm a Big Green Egg man myself. Tasty treats come from my smoker all year round. My personal favorite is turning about 15lbs of pork shoulder into incredibly moist and delicious pulled pork:



10 hours later:


Those big lumps of meteorite looking things on the smoker fall apart with just a push of a fork on the top of it.

I've also been known to try a beef brisket but that's the hardest cut of meat to smoke and I wreck those about as often as I get them right:

Re: BBQ Grilling

Tonite, Boneless chicken breast, baked potatoes and balsamic glazed zucchini tonite. No wine.

Tomorrow, lamb chops, baked potatoes, asparagus. Nice Super Tuscan wine.

Sunday, ribeye steaks, baked potatoes, probably asparagus again, because I do the cooking and it’s my favorite veggie. Two bottles Barolo. Can’t wait for that one.

Monday, cedar planked salmon, baked potatoes, served over salad greens, with nuts, seeds, and sliced strawberries. Baby Super Tuscan.

Tuesday, go shopping and plan the rest of the week.

I love grilling.

I know Mani does the Big Green Egg also.

Re: BBQ Grilling

I also use an egg for my pork. 11 hours and heaven. But, I have a pizza oven that is amazing. Pizzas then when everyone is in a coma, I slip in a chicken in a French clay roasting covered pot for the next evenings dinner. Be sure to use 00 flour from Italy for the proper Napoli Pizza. (wife is in charge of that)

https://www.amazon.com/Primavera-Out...za%2Boven&th=1

In the 22" weber I have a 1/4" steel plate with 12" of the center cut to a grill.

https://arteflame.com/products/artef...hoCrvIQAvD_BwE
Takes re thinking but superior.

I grill all year, have to account for the ambient temperature sometimes. Problem is everyone else is inside when it is nasty. I have a covered pergola to deal with things. And a ten foot table to seat everyone. Beer fridge is just inside the garage that backs up the yard. Plenty of supplies.

Re: BBQ Grilling

I will have to get boneless shoulder next time. this looks great. I always get bone in and shred it. Just tonight at a party one fellow who has a "smoker" does beef mostly, I mentioned why go through all the trouble and spend 12 hours at it and not use PORK!

Re: BBQ Grilling

Looks like I am in the majority. I grill year round, even in snow or rain, at least the snow back in Connecticut. Best way to cook. We always cook fish on the grill to keep the smell out of the house and it tastes better.
During major snowstorms we don't cook on the grill, my wife makes soup.

Re: BBQ Grilling

Year round John and like you I have a Weber Genesis. I would like something with more heat, especially for Winter and when cooking swordfish which I have a great method for:

A.) Lots of salt on both sides (it flashes off and seals the juices in keeping it moist)
B.) Baste with a mixture of mayonnaise, soy sauce, pepper and oregano. Slowly blend the soy in until it is like milk chocalate

The now deceased (lost at sea) founder of Charlie's Crab restaurants in Detroit and Lauderdale taught me that one.

A friend has a Genesis that he purchased natural gas ready and he said it has a lot more heat than the propane version. Unfortunately, no natural gas here...

If you want some excellent rub, go to https://reddirtrichbbq.com/ which is a new company a friend of mine just started. It will take your BBQ to a whole new level!

I'm interested in a Green Egg, but how do they do in winter, is there a risk of cracking them? I don't need a cracked egg!

Re: BBQ Grilling

Grill/smoke year round...22" Weber charcoal, Brinkman charcoal smoker, large Masterbuilt gas smoker, and horizontal Brinkman wood/charcoal fired smoker. Lowes has charcoal on sale several times a year - 2 pack 18.5 lb bags for $9.99. Have 20 bags ready to go by garage door. Best food always comes off the grills. Rain, shine, cold we grill 4 times week average.

Happy grilling!

Re: BBQ Grilling

Wes and Mani, you guys had me convinced that I wanted to gift myself a BGE for Christmas, but DAYUM, had sticker shock when I looked them up. Is there ever a "good" time to buy them on sale?

Check out Komodo Joe - it's basically the same thing as as a BGE but less expensive. That said, I've gotten so much enjoyment out of my Egg that I still consider it a great purchase. Look around locally for deals also. When I bought my Egg it was from a Spa & Pool store that was throwing in a bunch of accessories and a large bag of organic charcoal. The accessories can add up as well.

Re: BBQ Grilling

When I moved to NC bought a Wilmington grill from the owner of the house we bought. Top of the line stainless steel grill. Better than the webers i had over 25 years.
Never met a grill man or woman who didnt love their egg. On my Christmas list.

I can report that owning a BGE has changed my life for the better. I now own two of them, a large and a small.

Matt, the BGE is the last grill/smoker/cooker you will buy. They stand behind their product 100% no questions asked. My ceramic cracked over the years twice and have had it replaced ASAP.
The BGE do not go on sale, but there are promotions like the big holidays when they come with a ton of accessories included, which you would have to buy otherwise. Makes it worth while.
Only buy from an authorized dealer. Dont buy used, you know the ceramic will crack at some point.

Re: BBQ Grilling

I joined the club -- a special shout out to Mani (Aviator) and Wes (PittsDriverWes).

Mani I would like to thank for constantly showing me pictures of his amazing looking dinners off his BGE. All that has done through the past two years or so is make me want to visit him for dinner (and learn how to do it myself).

Wes, I'd like to thank you for bringing up Kamato Joe. Doing some reading/video watching, I've come to believe that the Joe and the Big Green Egg are extremely comparable.

About 18 months ago, Kamato Joe updated their unit, introducing the "Kamato Joe Classic II". These units retailed at about $1100, best pricing seemingly coming if you can meet up with them at one of their famous "Costco Roadshows". Anyway, I had started noticing the the remaining stock of the original "Classic" (if you could find one) were selling around $800. I was ready to drop $800 back at Christmas but wasn't finding one. I also considered driving about 100 miles to Columbia, MD where they were currently at for the Costco Roadshow but was too busy.

Well, it all worked out for the better. Tuesday night I walked into a Lowes wanting to look at shower doors as mine had EXPLODED on me (altogether different story). Walking through the store I spot a Kamato Joe. I have NEVER seen one of these units at Lowes before. Cha-Ching, it's on CLEARANCE for $561. I asked the guy working if they had any still boxed. He said "I'm sure we do, we only got in 2, I think that someone ordered them by mistake, we haven't sold any". Naturally he couldn't find the boxed unit but said the day shift could and last night I went back and picked up my Kamato Joe. Mind you, this is the original classic and not the version 2, but at $561 fully warranted, I DON'T CARE

Public service announcement for those looking for a Kamato cooker, check with your local Lowes.

...waiting for photos of tasty smoked treats....

If you're a Costco member, they have a great pork shoulder that has always been excellent. It's two shoulders for a total of about 14-15 lbs. I've done the whole 15 lbs and sometimes I'll freeze one and smoke the other. 9 hours on the smoker at 230-250 degrees, take it off when the internal temp in the dense part of it is over 180F and put it in a 300F oven to finish it off (abut 30 - 45 minutes will get it to 185 - 190 degrees internal). It'll fall apart moist and unforgettable. I use Dizzy Pig Swamp Venom with a yellow mustard rub on mine and the bark comes out amazing with no mustard taste at all.

Saute some sweet onion slices in a pot with butter and some more Swamp Venom and add in a jigger or two of your favorite bourbon when the onions are looking translucent. Let that burn off the alcohol for a minute then fill the pot with a proper amount of KC Masterpiece BBQ sauce.

You're very welcome

Re: BBQ Grilling

Oh, and make sure you only use organic wood charcoal with no chemicals in it. BGE or any other organic charcoal works fine. No fire starter chemicals should be used either. Just a couple of fire starter squares lit off with a butane flame and your smoker will be rockin' in 20 minutes ready to set the temp and forget it for several hours. Any of the chemicals in fire starter charcoal (like Kingsford) or liquids are warned that they can contaminate your ceramic vessel.

I like hickory or red oak blocks/chips for smoke for pork. When I do turkey or fish, I'll use cherry or apple wood for smoke. Direct grilling I just use the charcoal with no wood added.

Re: BBQ Grilling

Many many years ago, I used to fly from my hometown in Habersham County Ga. (KAJR) to PDK in NE Atlanta. The first BGE store was just up the street from the airport and at that time the BGE was made out of a firebrick material that was more of a dull finish. They had daily "cookings" and also sold Pachinko machines. They had no distributors and advertised in the Atlanta Journal Constitution. At that time I was renting a Cessna 150 or 152 and I was tempted to take a taxi up there and fly one home however, I had a recent bad lesson in weight and balance so sidelined that idea and drove down for a purchase. I loved that thing up until the time it had absorbed enough moisture to cause it to crumble to pieces.
It wasn't a week before I went back and this time they had the more modern ceramic material which I brought home. No idea how long I have been a BGEer but maybe from their near beginning, guessing 30 years.
I love fish, pork, chicken, turkey, pizza (with plate setter) however I have never cooked a steak that I thought was very good even though I've tried many times. Now BGE sells through dealers and you can find usually two in every town. I have no special recipes to share just the wonderful experience of having owned them back to the beginning.

Re: BBQ Grilling

Thought I'd chime in with my winter bbq grilling story. Never thought about grilling outside in inclement weather until reading this thread. Happens that the seafood company (Ocean Beauty) that I've been operating a salmon tender ( a large boat that takes aboard salmon from smaller boats while fishing so they can continue to fish while I deliver to the processor ) in Alaska for the last few years gave me two 25 pound boxes of salmon fillets, one coho the other sockeye. Like 15+ fillets per box. Not a cheap product on the market for general consumption so I guess they like me..... gave several to riding friends, some to co-workers at my part time job and to employees of wife's business. Finally, realized that though I had yet to sample, everyone exclaimed of the quality and flavor; so, today I dusted off the barbie, mixed up a sauce ( little bit of curry, little bit of pepper, some honey, brown sugar and a wee bit of orange juice. Best I've had in all the decades I've been in the commercial fishing world except for the one that'll always bring back memories: a thick steak off a 40 lb white king salmon. You like king salmon? Find yourself a white king. You'll never go back. Oh, and the barbie is on standby........
