Re: Paella!

peppermonster, my paella pans are carbon steel so they do need an oiling after each use, but carbon steel doesn't need to be heated up to season; applying oil after use when it's been washed and towel-dried is fine. Also, it's fine to use dishsoap on it as it doesn't really take/hold a seasoning li...

Re: Paella!

The Portuguese hammered copper cataplana has to be one of the sweetest looking vessels I've ever seen. I'd love to own one of those babies, except my wife would change the locks if I came home with any more toys. :? I have a similar Paella pan, did you season yours like you would a cast iron pan. M...

Re: please help me choose a grill

What are you willing to do for your food. If you want easy convenience, than go for the gas. If your are willing to do a little extra for great food results, I would suggest charcoal.

IMO there is nothing wrong with either choice, it all boils down to time.

Re: Old Style Propane BBQ

My old propane BBQ is on its last legs. I would like to get a new one with lava rock or ceramic tiles. All I can find is the ones with the metal deflectors. Do they still make them the old way or will I have to get one with the deflectors? Why do you want to stay with the old! Embrace the tecnology...

Just because someone does something, doesn't necessarily make it right. It's prime rib, don't jump off the bridge.

Re: Benifits and cost of natural gas

I use propane and don't feel put out. I have two tanks, always a back up. I refill at Costco for 10$ and maybe use 2 tanks through the summer. What's the big deal!

Re: Amount of lump charcoal

It depends on how you are preparing the chicken (whole ie: beer-in-the-butt, spatchcocked) and what chimney you are using. I would find it difficult to indirectly cook a chicken on an 18", there isn't too much room. The Weber chimney is the largest one, others tend to be smaller, so this would dict...

Amount of lump charcoal

How much cooking time can I expect ( approx.) from a chimney full of lump charcoal. I would be cooking a whole chicken using indirect heat (400* @ 20 minutes per pound).

Oh yeah, I am using an 18" Weber Kettle.

What is a UDG?

Thanks in advance.

grill rust

I just got my hands on a 18" Weber kettle grill. The cooking grid has some signs of rust. Should I replace it or is it possible to clean it up where it is safe to cook food on ?

Thanks in advance.

I really enjoy food well done. I am just getting in the Grilling game, however, not sure which way to go! Sites like this are a great resource.

Thanks in advance for all the tips!
