Day after ribs.
« on: February 05, 2019, 09:35:23 AM »
No meat for me during super bowl Sunday since the day was spent with a bunch of vegetarians. Got to have meat. Decided not to hang it this time around and used a modified snake with double diffuser.

Very nice. It would be difficult to be at a function and not have meat served.
I noticed you use the stacks or rings along With that diffuser plate for most of your cooks that you share with us. What do you think the benefit is of cooking that way compared to being closer to the fire?

Elevated cooking is just a lifestyle choice. Iím doing it right now. Direct over coals of course.

Lol. Well, i approve the lifestyle choice. I know you enjoy cooking that way on your wsm also, Sean. I wonder if it would help from the proteins burning or what other pros might be. Iíve got a roti ring. Iíll have to give it a go.

For me it just buys me some time over using the normal configuration and grilling direct. The meat can hang out for 15 minutes before anything burns. At that point I have to turn and rotate.  It I prefer the flavor of chicken especially grilled directly.

I only use the diffuser for smoking or when i want a very consistent temperature throughout the cooking grate whether it's for low or high temperature cooking. No moving or rotating the food required. Everything gets cooked very evenly and get done at the same time.   If multi zone is required, then the diffuser is not used.  In that case, then charcoal holder can be on the center, middle or either sides.   A stacker is used on more than 9 out of 10 of all my cooks.  My preferred method of cooking is direct  with an elevated cooking grate. The elevated grate prevent flames from ever reaching the food.  Steaks and Vortex style chicken are also done with a stacker.

Both cooking grates are on the stacker.  While using the same amount of charcoal in a vortex,  the temperature  at the cooking grate is as high if not higher than without the stacker.

Oh yeah!  I definitely get it. The higher the grate the more even the temp and less chance of flame touching the food while having all the benefits of a direct cook. Add a diffuser and I imagine more even cooking temp.

Iím jonesing for a higher set up with better air control. Iím headed your way at least to some degree.

I love cooking on my 18 wsm but I do not like the small grate size and that itís somewhat hard to achieve high temps.
