but FedEx brought me a new one.

About every 6 years I burn through my grill.

Charcoal plate was history to start the season, then the screws holding the legs on started pulling out.





The two screws on each leg serve dual purposes.

The lower screws hold the charcoal plate while the upper three hold the grill.



Loaded and ready.



FIRE IN THE HOLE!!!!!



Soaked mesquite chips added to hot coals and steaks are put on.



And there they are.


Mmmm Mmmmm.

There is a little bit left in the freezer.

First use of the new grill has to be my favorite cut of beef.


These are great smokers.

I buy the big 22" model, you can cook two sheets of spare ribs and still do a pack or two of the niblets.

Three sirloins fit just fine.

I wish they'd give me a new grill every six years.


These things are fantastic.

I don't bother with the instructions anymore.

So easy to put together.

I did this one in 15 minutes.

Three legs, three handles, three dampers.

Screws and nuts, only need a flat blade driver.

Cool Ron.


I just bought a gas grill last week.

It's a Sears' Kenmore.

$300 on sale. It was $370.


I need to buy a cover for the grill.


It has now been rained on THREE TIMES in just one week.



Anyway, I think I like your smoker better than my expensive grill.

I never use gas, always charcoal.

Hank Hill would have a fit.

Heh heh.

Rebel,
Don't buy a cover - rain won't ruin your grill but dampness and moisture under the cover will. I keep my gas grill uncovered all year and just make sure no standing water stays in it. Just my 2 cents but save yourself some money on the cover.

I see those nice shiny grills and wonder how they look after a couple years of cooking. A friend of mine that I camp with got one free through on of those grocery store give aways.
It tarnished so bad after the first use from the heat. I am not talking about the type you have Ron, I am talking about the nice stainless ones. Curious how they hold up.

My take on grills is the simpler the better. That is why I do not like gas grills, too many things that can rust and break and need replacement parts. After a couple seasons the burners start shooting uneven flames. Never liked cooking over that little atom bomb that holds the gas. My friend once went out to the back porch, lit the grill and when he went inside to get the food, he heard a hell of a roar. It was the tank shooting a huge flame out of the valve and it did burn his porch off the house. Plus burned up in his attic too.

Charcoal much safer!!!

I tried to save money and twice now I have bought covers for my grill from Target that don't fit. I still have to take the second one back. As for dampness under a cover I've thought about that too. Actually my grill already has some rust on it. I am even considering taking it back but I'll need help from my brother or a neighbor to take it back. I'm not very happy that I spent $300 on a grill and now it sits in the rain and even has rust on it already, albeit only on an exposed edge of the frame. The thing about charcoal is it takes up the evening. With a good gas grill you can have your steak in a hurry without the fuss of playing with ashes and the charcoal, waiting for the flame to get just right.


But steak off of a charcoal grill probably does taste better. I've never had a smoker. The thing is I live alone and I don't want to be spending a long time cooking just for myself. If I was cooking for a family I'm sure the charcoal expense and time would make more sense. I'm considering taking my grill back though. I have not used it yet. The grill is as I purchased it. I don't have a LOT of faith in the paint on the grill top. My grill is blue. Of the variety that I bought I had the choice of blue or red. I don't know it just seemed ok at the time but really I feel now I should have a stainless grill cover or perhaps flat black. And a piece of the blue paint, about the size of a quarter, chipped off when I wiped the water off of the grilll the other day. The chip is on the left side of the grill cover. It pisses me off that that place is now exposed to the elements. I think the grill cover was bumped in the warehouse or something. But probably I should simply not sweat the minutia and get on to enjoying my grill. Meanwhile though I am on a DIET. I've got to shed some weight. School starts August 17 and I'm going to be trying to lose weight at least until then.

The grill that I have been using is very small Webber grill. It is sort of round and sits about 8 inches off of the ground. They sell for about $18. I got that grill and a bag of charcoal at a garage sale for only $2. I've been using it for years now. I like the taste of steak off a charcoal grill. I didn't see a great charcoal grill when I was looking aroung, just some of your basic models. They had a HUGE Webber charcoal grill at Sears, just like the one I have but LARGE and three feet off of the ground. It would take a LOT of charcoal to cook one steak on that grill.

It takes about 20 minutes for the charcoal to be ready to cook on.

I deal with the baked potatoes while I wait to put the steaks on.

Sausage sammiches tonight, I'll cook the onions and peppers on the side of the grill.

Based on your recommendation I just purchased one.
Just had a new patio built so I'm looking forward to firing this up.

Old Smokey products rock!! I just got an old smokey electric smoker about a month and a half ago. I've already smoked a couple of chickens, ribs twice, a brisket, but the best has been an 8 lb pork shoulder. This weekend it's gonna be a ham .

Another Old Smokey fan.

I got one of the big oil barrel type grills for Christmas one year.

It was great for ribs where you need all the room you could get but for a couple steaks it used too much charcoal.

Stopped using it altogether.

I don't need a grill that can cook for ten.

You'll love it!

Just to save you some time, the six longest screws are for the handles, the shortest ones are for the dampers.

I leave the bottom closed until after I have seared the meat on each side, then I open the bottom one so more air gets to the coals.

I always leave the top ones closed, I want all that mesquite smoke flavor.

Ron, how much did you pay for your Old Smokey?



And my original plan was to simply wax my grill to protect it from the rain. I'll probably still do that and paint the place where the paint chipped off.

I got the #22 for 69.95.

You could easily get either of the two smaller grills for your needs.

I usually grill for four or five people.

Here's the link to The BBQ Store:
