The eye glaze...
« on: August 21, 2019, 06:39:25 PM »
Has anyone ever had people love your grilled food, then ask how you do it? Have you ever experienced peopleís eyes glaze over as you start to tell them how itís done? Iíve literally got to the point I donít even try to explain anymore. Any one else experience this?

Seriously? Just say...Ēwanted to cook it well; glad you enjoyed it.Ē

Most people donít really care how itís made. Occasionally I tease: ďI read a book...it came with the grill.Ē It usually gets a good laugh.

So true. They get all excited to make it themselves until you get past step three. Then itís way to much work for them.

The devil is in the details with great grilling.

I do too. I spent many years just making it up and still am learning each day. I remember my first grill was an 89 dollar charbroil charcoal grill that I bought right before Memorial Day. It didnít fit in the trunk of my z4 so I drove it home in the passenger seat with top down all proud that I had a grill. I loved that grill. Didnít matter that the top and bottom didnít line up right, I still made some decent food on it. But the key like anything in life is to keep learning.

Exactly the one! Makes sense that it would of worked for tri tip with the adjustable grate height. I didnít even know what tri tip was back then.

The one Iím talking about had a coal pan and was not adjustable. Just put the coals on the sides tritip in the middle. One of the best tritip Iíve ever made. Was bootyliscious!

Mine was a square bottom with a domed top. Had a charcoal door on the front and the charcoal grate could be adjusted closer or further away from the food grate manually by hooking it on different height hooks. The charcoal grate warped on the first cook and never sat even again. When I got my first Weber I couldnít believe how easy it was compared to the drafty charbroil. Hereís a photo I found of it in a family album from June 2011
