  1. This is my first attempt at some spares on my new Chrgriller...Im still learning with it...but at this time...everything seems to be going as planned. Sorry didnt get any q-view of ribs before they went on...but this is at 3 hr mark...as I am foiling...





    Is this Thin and blue enough??





    Does this look like what im suppose to be doing as far as the " minion" Method?

    It's just the Kingsford....when it finally lights the temp will recover....quickly!

    Know that bottle of charcoal lighter you got sitting around NOT being used? Works well... dampen a paper towel and wipe it off. Or acetone, or gas... prolly WD-40. Not Walking Dude...he's WAAAY over 40 ;{)

    Nice job on the ribs!
     
  11. Lookin good, man, looking good!

    Here is what I use for my charcoal in the firebox.
    It has held up great, no signs of wearing out due to heat etc. - keeps the charcoal up out of the ash.
    Just remove the handle and rig it into the firebox on those rails going down the sides... inexpensive solution to a common problem [​IMG]

    Hey Gethenet,

    I have the same thermometer and I have cleaned mine with a razor blade. The smoke build up just scrapes right off. You can use soap and water and a whole lot of elbow grease and it will eventually come off, but scraping takes 2 seconds.....done. I have also been looking at the Chargriller as my next smoker. I have been comparing offset smokers that I can afford, and the Chargriller seems like the hands down winner. I dont know when I will get it, but someday, someday it will be mine (lol).
