Re: 350ºF Butt

High heat butts are the cats ass!!

I recently began doing them this way on the WSM and the results are easily more moist and just as tasty as doing them at ~240F....

Looks great Shawn!

Re: Help with some grey soot

What colour is the flame emitted from the burner?
They should be a nice even blue colour when the grill is sufficiently "burnt off" (clean) and there is no food on. If the flame is a bright orange it usually means that your air supply is choked off and this will cause soot production.

Re: Spare ribs at Costco?

Yes, Costco has some decent meat thats for sure, good prices too. The only place (mass sales) that can touch their back's is Lococo's in Stoney Creek. Now those are some slabs!! They leave loads of loin meat on them, each rib is like eating a mini porkchop.... As said above, all the beef is Canada A...

Re: Pulled pork and rib BBQ porn from this week....

Got those ones at Foodland in Stratford.... I can usually get them anywhere they are on sale, just have to ask. Most grocery stores usually get them in that twin pack, and them chop them up smaller for sale. Ask the butcher and they should be able to set you up.

I agree...
Really, WSM are about as "set it and forget it" as anything out there.... even though they burn charcoal.
There is something primal about lighting a fire and cooking meat over it that I just cannot get enough of........

Re: First Brisket

That looks great Trevor... b2

I am going to have to try a brisket soon as well.

Question: Running a foiled pan at 300F; what were your vent settings? Mine will run at ~300F steady with all bottom vents closed, though I think I am getting air in between the bowl and mid-section.

Re: Manitoba Maple for Smoking?

Lets bump this to the top, I'm interested if anyone has used this as well.

As everyone always talks about "sugar maple" as the best maple to use, I tried silver maple and found no difference, it's great. Boxelder are in the same family as other maples, maybe it tastes the same as well?

Re: Is this a decent grill?

I voted no. Do yourself a favour and check out the cheaper Broil King's (also Broil Mate or Sterling). You can get one for around $300 ( http://www.rona.ca/shop/~barbecue-44000-btu-propane-gas-barbecue-sterling-385594_propane-gas-barbecues_barbecues_summer-seasonal_shop ), and it will last longer an...

Re: Super 8 vs triple tube burners

I will give you my experience with these two grills. I have an older (5 yrs) Crown 70 with the Super 8 burner. The box is smaller than the new model however. I used this grill on average 3X per week for 5 years before getting a new burner (on OMC as well). It heats very fast and gets very hot. I am ...

Re: Water question

You can use whatever you want, but what Peter said is true, if you use cold the temp. rise will be slowed (which is not always a bad thing), and you will consume a bit more fuel bringing the volume of water up to boiling. Generally I will use hot when I start up the WSM, but will replenish with cold...
