Michigan Smokes

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by mibbq, Aug 12, 2013.

  1. Hello,

    My name is Bil, I live in Ann Arbor, MI, USA.  I may be new to this site, but not new to grilling and BBQ.  My current rig is a Char-Griller Duo with side burner and smoker box.  I have been using this rig for about six years, and I still love it though it is getting pretty beat up.  I cook outdoors nearly every day during the warm weather months and my poor grill goes uncovered most of the summer.  I cook pretty much everything on it, all summer long.  I use the gas side primarily for "baking" and roasting, and the charcoal side for everything else.  Nothing like good BBQ!

    I found this site while looking for ideas to modify my trusty Char-Griller for smoking sausage links.  I don't want sausage link that are flat on one side from laying on the grill.  I would like to be able to hang them to smoke, so I get nice, plump links.  I found a wealth of information, but not exactly what I was looking for (at least not yet).  I will post in the appropriate area later.  Hopefully others have had this same issue and have some creative ideas as to how to rig up sausage hooks in the Char-Griller.  

    Happy BBQ!

    Hi Bill....not a lot of room in the CharGriller to hang anything.  You may have to go with something bigger or maybe more vertical.

    [​IMG]to SMF!  We are so glad you joined us! 

    We love to see pictures of what you are cooking (or what we call q-views here at SMF).  To "upload the q-views" just follow the directions here and it will be easier. If you are using a cell phone, an IPad or a kindle, go to the main SMF page and click the Mobile button. Will make the uploads a bit faster too.

    If you didn't read the "Terms of Service" notes.....please do.  There are a few things that everyone should know about those pesky little rules before plunging into the forums and some guidelines of how to interact within the forums. Off site links are not allowed here at SMF per Jeff. Not that you have done anything wrong....just a little bit of FYI for new members!

    If you need any help roaming around the forums....just holler!  Happy to help out!
