Ribs take up a lot of real estate. I would say if ribs are a primary target for you, go with the 22.5. Ribs take up a lot of room. You can get more than you think on the 18.5 with a roll-em-up...

I agree.



As far as "is the advice still good"?

The cheap Brinkmans are not worth whatever they cost. They are flimsey and don't control airflow, so you get very little temp control.

by my estimates, $145 seems reasonable. At my local butcher shop, that same list would be double that or more. People like the quality, but they don't do large enough volume to be cost...

I don't know if the froyo was cursed or not as I had a preventative exorcism. The turkey sandwich is NOT dry... in fact it is a wee bit rich from melted cheese and pesto sauce.

I have had the acai bowl.

I personally think we need to rename acai into something easier to day. Even "better blueberries" is easier to say, but I digress.

The acai bowl was good. It felt...

It is similar, but the chimney has a funnelling effect, and you can get crazy high temps over the chimney. I bet it can go well over 1000* with lump. It's a fun technique, but a little...

I think it is actually easier, since a gas valve will control the temp over long periods of time without fussing with it. I think the key is doing this indirectly. The bigger the grill, the easier...

St. Raichlen did a show once where he cooked steaks over an open firepit on the face of a shovel. Now THAT was impressive.

I agree. Danger zone is 40* to 140* for over 4 hours.
