Barbeque season

Postby jevs on Sun Jan 28, 2018 7:23 pm

Starting to plan this years barbeques etc and thinking of getting a smoker. Not sure who the expert was (Dan?) but need some advice. Looking at the Weber Smokey Mountain 37cm....the Mrs works at a garden centre and get's 1/3 off everything including barbeques.

Is the 37cm ok for just me and the Doris ? Anything else I should take into account?

Too small, as far as I’m aware - if you can stretch to the 47cm model, you should. Bloody expensive, but worth it, especially at a discount. I’ve never tried the 37, though, so that’s not from personal experience.

I have the 57cm WSM and it’s a huge b*stard. Too big for my garden, really, and takes a full 10kg bag of catering-grade lumpwood. Will keep at temp for 14 hours on a warm day without a refil.

We have the perfect weather for BBQ's here in Atlanta.We can grill 9 month's of the year.
I have this Weber Grill, it's a gas grill not charcoal or wood, but still is a great piece of kit. I can rotisserie chickens and it also has a smoker box. Can get up to 600-700F in a heart beat.

Good for the beach but need to keep them sheltered from the wind.

Preference would always be a charcoal BBQ, alas for convienence and ease we have a gas one (Napoleon).

We literally use it all year end, just last night I did the steaks on there. Any cooking of meat we generally do on the Barbie, tastes better and is so easy to do.

Even during the winter - probably use it 3/4 times a week.

We did a couple of Cotes De Boeuf on the kettle on Christmas day. Most satisfactory.

Got one of these late last year:

http://batavia.eu/en/producten/4grill-barbecue-stainless-steel/

just been used once, looking forward to using it this summer, though I will probably use it for just grilling than being a bit more adventurous, maybe I should try my hand at smoking but knowing me will overcook it still!
