WKC Featured Member #3- dazzo!

I am pleased to introduce our next featured member and he goes by the handle dazzo around these parts. That’s his clown name (no joke!) and though he claims to clown around no longer, it must be an important part of his life. Without further ado, here is how he describes himself:

My name is Rick, aka dazzo, aka DAZZ-O The Clown, Ret.

I like Pina Coladas and getting caught in the rain. I’m not much into health food, I’m not into champagne. I actually do enjoy kleaning a kettle. It’s simply amazing to me that with a razor blade scraper, a box of SOS pads and a little Mothers, that a kettle can be transformed into something to be enjoyed, again.

I’m looking for a ‘birth-year’ kettle, but, problem is, charcoal wasn’t invented yet. Elvis was still a Prince, and Marilyn Monroe was “born” in that leap year.

Growing up was hard. I could handle OK the walking to school, barefoot, in the snow, uphill, both ways. But what I missed out on was BBQ and grilling. Unlike some stories I’ve read, I don’t have memories of growing up with a fruity kettle. I had to start my own memories with a Weber.

It started with a black ’78. My wife and I were a young married couple with two young kids. I wanted to “BBQ”, so we bought a Weber kettle – brand new. I remember it being a lot of money for us (although I’m cheap so it’s probably all relative anyway). I must have some repressed memories somewhere of charcoal grilling because although I don’t remember, I knew enough to buy a Weber kettle – they were the best.

KettleVent

I had later gotten away from charcoal, and then I got gas. I admit, I had a Charbroil Precision Flame 9000 that some good friends had bought for us, since I was always grilling. Loved that thing!

Several years ago I wanted to grill with charcoal again. Along comes the green Double D Performer SS, which came with a quick disconnect 20# tank. The guy didn’t like filling the little tank. Got it for a good deal as he was having a BBQ built in.

Yes, I have Weberitis. Admitting to it is one of the steps to recovery, right? I didn’t know what I was suffering from. Realization began when I happened to be on CL, and stumbled upon a Weber Gas Kettle. Too cool. Went to meet the guy – it was like five minutes from my house – with traffic. He was a nice enough guy (don’t want him to get a big head) and he showed me the kettle.

I had already done some research using this new little Web site – I think it was called Weber Kettle Club. I found some guys in some foreign country were having some discussion on kettle gassers. Thankfully, there was no mention of banana hammocks at that point or I probably never would have joined.

Anyway, “Duke” grabs the propane torch – total overkill, but that’s what it’s all about – and fires the thing up. Sold!

Went home, and a little while later joined the WKC. I was assigned number 218 at ground zero for Weberitis.

GreenMBH

Then, the readheads – I’ve got it full-blown now – but down to only one. My green MBH is one of my favorites to look at. My other looker, and cooker, is the C&B Performer with the matching granite table – this one usually gets the chicken/fruits/veggies duty.

 

Performer

And my latest acquisition. Working on plans for some mods on this MLH…

WoodDaleVent
Remember the kettle gasser? It’s now my (original) Weber Wok burner – great for pancit. And fried ravioli.
I enjoy cooking outside. To that end, I still have gas – in my outdoor cooking area. A couple ‘Genesi’ (plural) gassers. One with two cast iron griddles for my flat top.

A while back, a collegue at work, who was from the South, informed me that BBQ was pork, done low and slow. Being a native Californian, I just hadn’t learned that yet. Thanks to this club, I finally picked up a small butt, lined up the fuse in the Double D SS with a couple chunks of apple wood (burned right to left for pork) – and haven’t looked back. Love the aroma in the yard as it’s Q’n.

And the ABT’s. Best things ever! Tried them and they were a hit! My daughter then made a request for “vegetarian” ABTs…

Jalapenos – halved
Mozzerella chunks
Chicken Apple sausage – the vegetarian part – instead of cocktail wieners, go figure.
Bacon

My wife gives me a bad time about how I don’t want to join Facebook, but that I’m always on the WKC site. I didn’t join FB because I don’t want to be found, and there’s too much drama – oh, wait, drama?

And if you ever get tired of looking at the WKC, check out www.dazzo.com
I like art, and painting on walls, and this site shows off some of my murals.

DazzoTheClown
Wait, what about DAZZ-O The Clown you ask. Well, when my kids were young, I was a clown and I performed at children’s birthday parties – Games, a little magic, and LOTS of Fun! – it was a blast. Although I don’t dress as a clown any longer, I still have done some magic shows for our friends kids.

Dang, no wonder I didn’t have time to BBQ

Seriously, I do want to thank all the members for making this site so enjoyable to look at, and for being an inspiration. The food pr0n inspires me to try different things. The kettle restores and mods inspire me to tweak my kettles. And the friendships inspire me to be a better person (sorry, was that too much?)

Thank you!

Oh yeah, and I still have my original kettle, my Old Grey.

Fade to black while ZZ Top plays in the background…
No, baby, tell me why don’t you?
Oh, now, baby, tell me why don’t you?
Make me some of your fine famous Bar-B-Q?

WKC Guide to BBQ grill thermometers

One great aspect of the Weber Kettle is that it can cook at all types of temperature ranges from cold smoking, hot smoking, low and slow bbqing, baking and grilling. Tweaking the internal temperature is accomplished with the amount of charcoal, charcoal position, and the the adjustable vents. Since the adjustable vents give you versatility, a thermometer can help you keep your kettle at optimal temperature.

Weber released a few kettle models along the years that have a thermometer. In the 1990′s the Mastertouch and later on the Performer had a thermometer in the lid. The simple dial thermometer was first mounted right under the top handle. It also had a probe portion that also allowed you to test the temp of the meat! Around 2009 Weber relocated the thermometer to the lid with a classy chrome bezel on the One Touch Platinum, 2nd generation Performer and later the One Touch Gold.

Grate vs lid temperature.

The lid and grate temperature will vary slightly due to radiant heat from the charcoal and kettle body and proximity to the meat. I recommend to not worry too much but to keep your measuring method consistent. Keeping the location consistent will allow you to make tweaks for the next cook to decrease cooking time or change how the meat cooks. Most recipes can be cooked in a ~50F degree window and still produce good results.

How do I know if my thermometer is consistent?

The best way to do calibration is with the boil test. Water boils at 212F, or 100C so you can boil a pot of water and stick the probe in there to confirm. This will give you one reference point towards to cooler side of the temperature range.  If you only have one thermometer it will be harder to calibrate it across the entire temperature range. The other option to get a high temperature reference point is to set your oven to 350F and see how your thermometer records that temp. If they are slightly off don’t worry about it too much. There can be alot of variation between the the temps on each dial. As long as the thermometer reads consistently, you can mark temperatures on the dial if it reads low or high, or remember to always add the number of degress it’s off by for a specific temp. Remember that a thermometer will allow you to put run your kettle within a certain temperature range and a wide window will still produce good results. So don’t stress too much about getting it to exact degree. If you need or want more accuracy though, check out the digital options below.

What if my kettle didn’t come with a thermometer?

There are alot of options out that to help you to measure your temperature. Here are some of the most popular:

Dial thermometer.

How it works: There is a a long winded coil that attaches to the needle. As the metal heats up, it expands and rotates the dial to the appropriate temp.

Mounting options: There are alot of options here. There are models with a base that you can keep inside the kettle if you only need to check on temps once in a while. Other’s have a short probe that can threaded through a hole. like popped into a top vent hole, or secured with a nut in a hole drilled in the kettle

Here’s DirectDrive’s thermometer lid install

Mac Eggs Oven dial thermometer on the grate:

1Buckie’s grate temp dial. He recommends lightly oiling the window to make after cook cleaning easier.

buckie grate temp weber

Doppelbock’s  thermometer through the top vent

weber temperature thermometer vent hole

Pros- Cheap, available at most home improvement or kitchen stores. No batteries required.

Cons- Varying accuracy for cheaper models and not all can be calibrated. low price point makes quality questionable so stick to well reviewed brands and models.

Look at:

Basic dial oven thermometer $4.

Basic mounted dial thermometer $8.

Tel Tru mounted dial thermometer $28.

tel tru weber

Probe/digital thermometer

How it works. A temperature probe or thermocouple is connected to a digital controller. The controller sometimes allows for additional functions like Celsius conversion, calibrations , multiple tempertature sensors for meat and or cooker temp, and alarms. Some models like the Maverick ET-732 even have a wireless transmitter that displays the grill temp while you are far away!

How it’s mounted. The wires need to be wired into the kettle. You can slip them through the holes in the top vent, under the lid, or a hole or grommet drilled into the kettle body or lid. (pics)

Pros. Most can be calibrated to give the most accurate readings. Wireless capability allows remote monitoring. Multiple temp readings on one unit.

Cons. Lower quality probes can break or malfunction. Wires can be unwieldy and the unit needs batteries to function

Look at Maverick Et-733 Wireless thermometer $70 on Amazon.

weber et-733 maverick thermometer

Data logger/ temperature controller 

At the high end of the thermometer market there are active temperature controllers. Some people also call this a Guru or Stoker after two of the most popular brands of temperature controller. Like the digital and probe thermometers they keep track of the meat and kettle temperatures  with separate probes but add a control system and fan to keep your kettle at the desired temperature. To use a temperature control, the air intake vents are closed down so that when the temperature gets too high, the fan stops and the kettle is choked for air. The fan starts up again once the temp falls below the desired temperature. Really high end units can be connected to wifi to send messages to the user, log data for cooks and have multiple probes and cookers to control various cookers and track multiple cuts of meat at once. Some kettle modification is probably necessary.

How its mounted: The wires need to be wired into the kettle. You can slip them through the holes in the top vent, under the lid, or a hole or grommet drilled into the kettle body or lid. (pics) The fan attaches to an existing vent or hole

Pros: Pogrammable, active temp control makes setting a temperature super easy, remote monitoring, wifi compatibility, etc.

Cons: Expensive. Needs a power supply or outlet to work. Modification to the kettle  is probably necessary to mount the fan- especially for One Touch kettle.

Look at:

PitmasterIQ, basic temp controller starting at $140.

Rock’s Bar-B-Cue Stoker WiFi, High end temp controller with wifi, multiple cooker control, and advanced programming starting at $350.

stoker

BBQ Guru CyberQ Wifi. High end temp controller with wifi, multiple cooker control, and advanced programming. Starting at $400 with blower fan.cyberQ guru bbq

 Meat Thermometer 

A meat thermometer will let you know when your meat is done. Unlike the kettle temperature, the temperature window for meat doneness is much narrower. Too low and undercooked meat may be rubbery still have viral bacteria, and too high/overcooked meat will yield dry, flavorless food. I recommend a digital probe type as their superior accuracy is great for determining right when the meat is done. They also more convenient to use as they heat up much faster preventing the need to keep the kettle open for too long and have your temperature run away. I recommend the Thermapen from Thermoworks  for $96. Cheaper options are available for $15-30 dollars – such as this digital probe Thermometer made by Taylor-  for the trade off of less durability, speed, or accuracy.

Weber-Westerner-96

Pros: Really simple to use (fold out the probe to turn on and fold it in to turn off), Splash proof, calibratable, and gets up to temperature in <3 seconds. They also come in numerous colors to match your accessories or mood.

Cons: A little pricey, but worth the investment. Can’t really leave it plugged into the meat to track real-time temp.

 

Hope that helps, feel free to post in the forums if you need more detailed info.

The Original Weber – George’s 1952 Barbecue Kettle

When you have a chance to get your hands on an original Weber kettle, you don’t say no. You grab your camera and pray for good weather. I recently had that chance, and took full advantage of it. Weber Stephen headquarters in Palatine Illinois is home to some amazing artifacts – remnants of over 60 years of innovation and passion for grilling. But it wasn’t always that way. Before George Stephen built Weber’s reputation as the world’s leading maker of charcoal and gas grills, he was a lot like you and me; working hard during the week, and kicking back on the weekend. We all know one of the best ways to kick back is to gather around a pile of glowing coals, good friends and grilled food.

At his home in Mount Prospect, George built himself what he believed to be a state of the art grilling center. Solid brick, with an iron insert to hold coals and support a grate. Life was good. But something wasn’t quite right. Without a cover, the winds (here in the Chicago area, we specialize in windy weather) would blow ash over the food and cool off the grilling surface – even on a warm day. It sparked an idea that is well documented; why not make a covered grill that would allow trapped heat to circulate around the food and protect it from flare-ups, ash and unpredictable weather? His experiments lead to an amazing innovation in charcoal grilling: George’s Barbecue Kettle. First produced by Weber Brothers Metal Works (where George was employed at the time) the kettle quickly became known as the “Weber Kettle”. The name stuck.original weber kettle grill advertisement

Fast forward to today, and a visit to Weber’s world headquarters in Palatine, IL. That brick barbecue George built behind his house? It was moved to the front entrance of the main office. On a sunny day in May, with tulips in full bloom and the sun shining, I was able to turn the clock back and recreate a scene we can only imagine was something George’s neighbors would have seen (and would soon benefit from themselves) back in 1952. A new contraption that looked a bit like a flying saucer, with smoke filtering out of the lid. So let’s visit George in his backyard and see what he’s up to!

As we approach, we can see the grilling center George spent so much time on. Impressive, but what’s that thing sitting net to it?

original weber kettle grill

We get a little distracted by the tulips for a moment, but that strange object is beginning to come into focus.

1952 original weber

George describes it for us. He tells us how he was looking at the metal channel marker buoys made by Weber Brothers, and how he cut one down to make a bowl and lid. With vents in the lid (and later in the bowl) to let the coals breath, the fire was easy to control and the food was bathed in circulating heat. Everything that went in came out perfectly cooked. If you ask him why it seems a little short, he’ll tell you it’s designed to be easy to disassemble and store – the leg cradle uses wingnuts so you can take it apart and store it inside the kettle. That way, it will go anywhere.

1952 Low Angle View WM

We chat a while longer, then it’s time to go. Before we do, George invites us to his office where has has a few other inventions he’s very proud of. He should be proud – they are true American icons. His family and many others are still busy perfecting the original kettle and making believers of grilling beginners and experts alike around the globe.

Announcement: WKC Regional Subscribers

The Weber Kettle Club has grown to proportions unexpected by all.

This is exciting and fantastic in regards to our mission statement: The goal and purpose of the WKC to be the ultimate resource and community for all things relating to Weber charcoal grills.

One shining element of this growth is the friendships and camaraderie that have developed. Members are organizing their own local WKC chapter meetups, recruiting new members, making local trades, and sharing knowledge and expertise more than ever.

In an effort to encourage more of this, the Weber Kettle Club is introducing “private” forums for local and regional specific topics (like super rare grills found on craigslist.)

Any city or region with an active member base will have a forum category created for them.
Each of these forums will non-public – only WKC subscribers will have access to these regional forums.
We’re not putting a price on subscriptions at this point. Any donation or WKC shwag purchase will automatically make you a subscriber for 12 months.

Any user who has purchased or donated this year will automatically be subscribed. Later in the year, subscribers will also gain new features that non subscribers do not have.

To make this happen, the WKC forums will be upgraded to VBulletin. Migration plan is in the works. We will do our best to keep downtime to a minimum. If it takes more than a day, I give you permission to kick me in the jimmy.

In the meantime – BLUE logo WKC shirts and WKC wooden handles are available for preorder HERE! Go order some and help keep the WKC website running!

Onwards and Upwards.

Weber Grill Mod: Adding Gas Assist

How to add a Touch N’ Go gas assist to a kettle

The Weber Touch N’ Go gas assist is a nifty feature that uses a small propane burner to start the charcoal in your kettle. It’s simplifies the charcoal lighting process and keeps things clean and safer by now have to mess with lighter fluid or a hot chimnet.. The Touch N’ Go gas assist feature comes on most Weber performers. The older style gas assist used a refillable 5lb propane tank but in 2005 the new performer model came with a connection for a disposable tank. Short of the regulator and propane fitting, the components are the same.

There are a few reasons why you may want to add a gas assist:

-You bought a performer model without the gas assist feature.
-You want to make a kettle mounted table with built in gas assist and want a propane starter.
-You want to transfer a gas assist from one kettle to another that you already have.
-Finding a performer in your area is rare and expensive

It must be getting warm since the WKC has been blowing up with activity over the past three weeks. Grillfellas have had the chance to kick off the season with great cooks and spring cleaning has led to some good scores. Sorry that Gummi hasn’t been updating the potw! I hope this one gets you up to speed.

Did you get into the easter spirit this weekend like Jeff did? No easter eggs necessary as here’s his pastel lineup.
