Yep I only use Weber Kettle and fuel,everything else is overpriced , that is where they make much of the profit on **** like the cleaners, drip pans and all the other nonsense, FFS £4 for a tin foil drip tray !

Babyback ribs on the Weber, nearly ready, mouth is watering.

Drinking some local scrumpy cider.


Good times.

well it turned out that granddaughter no1 has me awake at 4.30 on Sat, then the little monkey went back to sleep on the sofa at 5.15, so I fired up the weber at half 5 :lol:
smoked the shoulder for 11 hrs , using a cider mop , it was a brilliant piece of meat by the end

Going to do my first of the season this weekend but want something more adventurous than the usual Burgers, Sausages or Chicken Legs combo. So......

If you could only cook one more meal on your BBQ, what would it be?

If it really was my last one, probably my tongue.
Possibly my ol' chap just for the chipolata gags from the raucous crowd.
But in reality a lamb kebab, the peppers, mushrooms and red onion playing a key part in the blackened mess that is usually prevalent when I get involved.

May be a bit of a stupid question, but ive been using the self lighting bags of charcoal for ease, but much to my Neighbours understandable annoyance they do give off a lot of noxious fumes which seem to last quite a while.

Any advice for the best and least invasive fuel?

Get yourself one of these (Chimney starter) and use either briquettes or lumpwood.

I'm slow cooking a shoulder on my weber, going well so far, big question though..
When it starts losing temperature and I need to add some more coal do I just drop a couple on or light them in the chimney first?

Get them going in the chimney first, otherwise the smoke from the lighting charcoal will spoil the flavour.

I did think of buying one of those Weber Barbeques and I still might when we build a shed to store it in - in the meantime I thought of building my own barbeque until the shed comes along - where would be the best place to buy a good stainless steel grill ? I looked on Ebay last night and there's a variety of grills , some made to order etc - it can be hit and miss though and I thought I'd ask you lot for advice .

Anyone bought a stainless steel grill ?

My Weber is happy out in the garden, under just a standard kettle cover.
It does go in the shed at the end of summer but these products are so good that as long as it is cleaned and looked after, no rust, no tarnishing, If I deep clean it , it looks brand new

I did a pizza on my weber, pizza stone, tons of briquettes to get the heat up, came out a treat, only needed about 5 mins though so I shut the top and bottom vents and it extinguished the coals,
Can I use them again? Do I just light them the same in the chimney starter, will they work as well? Or do I save them and mix a few in with new ones?

You can re use part burned coals but I tend to just use fresh, as they can burn a bit nasty second time round.
