  4. thought so.  what are your thoughts on Kingsford charcoal briquettes?  I have been using them lately and not seen any difference as of yet.

    I guess I'll go find the charcoal vs lump coals thread if there's one already.

    Last month Costco just had their (roughly) semi-annual sale of 2 18-lb blue bags for $15.
     
  7. Today is the last day to get the 2x 20 lb bags of charcoal at HD for $12.88
     
  8. Bought 6 of 'em. [​IMG]
     
  9. I bought 2 last thursday and am thinking about getting another two today before it's too late if they still have any left.
     
  10. Not to cause a ruckus, but I prefer Stubbs brand...


    It's available at Lowe's by me.

    Picked up my 6 bags of Kingsford at HD yesterday evening.  Works out to $6.49 a 20 pound bag.

    Great score!!
     
  15. I would buy the 22 inch weber smokey mountain. I holds a lot of food and maintains it's temperature well. But, I would recommend the minion method the start the smoke.
     
  16. I bought 8 bags from HD yesterday. Figured I would use a lot more this summer since I'm going to be smoking with the WSM now.
     
  17. Can you elaborate on this some more? Do you have to keep spraying the food while cooking because you don't use the watering pan? How's the fire pit factor in?

    Yes I'm slow, so be nice lol

    Most folks here dont use water... http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/newsearch?search=water+in+pan+or+not

    The pot saucer supposedly helps regulate temp swings...

    No spraying or spritzing here...once the food is in the top only comes off once during the smoke..to put the therm in the meat..

    >>>>>>How's the fire pit factor in?<<<<<<<   I dont know what you are getting at here.....

  19. Thanks for the reply. As it relates to the fire pit you previous said:

    I wasn't sure if I was missing something or not.

    Yer welcome!!

    Nope..you arent missing a thing..

    No trash service here so the glass,metal and plastic goes to the county, the rest gets burned and into the compost piles...

    It makes a great place for ashes and greasy gunk from the WSM...
