Right on Bill. I wouldn't have thought that you would be "holding out" on me.

BTW, Nice grill marks on that meat in the egg!

Grilling or BBQ? (Topic Split)

I enjoy BBQing. I own several small grills for camping including the Weber BabyQ, Cobb and others. My favorite is the Weber Go-Anywhere Charcoal Grill. I can grill, bake, and BBQ with it. My favorite is BBQing, just set it and forget it. In my opinion, the taste is also better. BBQing with the Go-Anywhere allows me to have juicy, flavorful, and tender meats. You can see the juicy cut and the deep red outer smoke ring in the pictures. I've made Cornish Hens, chicken, pork shoulders, brisket, fish, baby back ribs, turkey breasts, and cakes. I just put a small amount of charcoal with a small piece of smoking wood on one side, and the meat on the other. The Cobb is also great for BBQ.

Hmmmm
Lots of ways to cook food, portable and not so portable. Between cooker types and cooking utensils I'd hate to add up my investment. We start as simple as a wiener on a stick, one of those four sided wire toasters, and a pie iron and go nuts from there. Who has a Raemco 7 in 1 stove that can not only cook food but will heat your tent or tiny trapping cabin? With coal. What is coal anyway?
And then there's that World War 1 trench mess kit that could keep you going for a long time with a few sticks, tinder box and flint and steel. YMMV.

Interesting grill. Although I do speak a little Spanish, admittedly, my French is dismally poor. But the video is visual enough to make up for my lingual shortcomings. It seems to really crank out a lot of heat, which is really good for steaks and thinner cuts, but I'm not sure how good it would work for a low-heat application like slow cooking or true BBQ'ing, (where you would want the application of low heat over a long time.) The "chimney" section kind of looks to me to be constructed almost like a section of double-walled wood stove chimney stack. When it got up to a ripping high flame, it looks like I could melt lead for fishing weights on it.
Looks like you can make some good steaks on it though.

And that's some good lookin' BBQ there Marky, but then I would expect no less from a true Texan! I also "collect" too many outdoor cooking appliances, (according to my wife,) but for "camping" I also own two of those Weber Go-Anywhere grilles, one that uses propane and one that uses charcoal. Other than that, they are twins. They're really great little heat sources for cooking and each has it's strong points, depending on what you are making. So, what time is dinner?

Thank you for your kind invitation Marky. I probably won't find myself down that way any time soon, but if I do come south I would definitely look you up and have some fun cooking up some good eats with you. Thanks for the invite.

I have a grill similar to your weber and I like it too for camping. I have been grilling and smoking for over 25 years, and my favorite is the reverse flow smoker I built myself but it is too big for taking camping without a pickup truck. I have not tried smoking on my charcoal camping grill, for one reason I like to smoke boston butts and I smoke them for 14 to 16 hours with real wood not charcoal , so it is not practical for that. But I have used it to make pretty good grilled meals. My wife's favorite is a beef stew I make by lining it with charcoal in the bottom, put an aluminum disposable pan on the grill grate, 2 cups of water, stew meat, potatoes, carrots and some spices, foil the top, then set the lid on and let it cook for about 2 to 4 hours. It's a good dish for the campsite, easy to make and her and my son love it (me too). I won a Coleman portable propane camp grill and I like it too, very convenient and useful. So when I go camping I have plenty of cooking options: charcoal grill, propane grill, campfire grill grate, and propane stove

Grilling or BBQ? (Topic Split)

Cookin a Bustin Butt on the Go-Anywhere. I only open the vents next to the fire and open the vents over the Butt. I put a few lit coals on one side of the grill and the Butt on the other side. The air flows through the coal and across the Butt then out the top vent. I cut the Butt in half. Put it in the grill and let it smoke for 3 hours. I wrap with foil and cook for another 30-45 minutes. Cook till the Butt temperature reaches 200. Shred and add BBQ sauce if you like.

I bought a Napoleon grill/Q because it has two burners so I can cook 'indirect', as you describe.
What nobody has ever convinced me, is that charcoal is superior to propane.
Charcoal is used in water filters because it doesn't impart a flavour to the water, so, other than providing heat, how does it improve the BBQ?
Obviously, I use wood chips to provide smoke. Hickory chips make pretty much any meat taste like pork. I use apple or mesquite or hickory, depending on what I'm cooking.
Pic one is my Weber with four burners and a smoker burner.
Pic two is the Napoleon, with two burners. Not exactly small, but does the job.

Large enough to BBQ a whole chicken.

When it comes to famous Texas and Carolina BBQ, don't they cook with wood?

Reading through this thread this morning has got me hungry! Some great pics. I need to go fire up the smoker....

I've got two Webers for the trailer, one propane and one charcoal. At home I use a Primo Oval for smoking and a Firemagic propane grill for grilling. The Primo (like a big green egg) is great for smoking everything from briskits to turkeys and everything in between. I'm thinking about getting a small Primo or Green Egg for the road.

My brother owns a BBQ restaurant in town. He has a smoker that can handle 20 briskits at a time!

I don't do a lot of outdoor grilling, but one of my favorite items to grill is fish filets (tilapia or whatever) over charcoal, with soaked hickory chips thrown onto the coals for smoke. Yum.
