Brat burgers on the JJ
« on: January 20, 2013, 11:31:03 AM »
I decided to break in my Jumbo Joe by making Brat burgers.  I started 40 briqs, once they were going good i put them on each side and let it warm up.   Once it was good to go i put the burgers on and found i was a little cramped for space, after a bit i lifted the grate to reposition my coals( the directions on the burgers is to use a med-low temp) and damped down my intake to lower my temps.  Once they were done we chowed down :) (sorry didn't get a plated pic :-[)


Wanted: 18" Platinum any color will work
This is my Kettle there are many like it but this one is mine......

My limitation here is I don't know what a brat burger is...... :-[ :-\

Bratwurst Patties ?

They dang well look yummy !!!!

Are those Johnsonville Brat Burgers?  If so, Ive had them once...they are really good.  Nice job.

Question for you.  Since the new JJ is so much different than the old style...I wonder how close the cooking grate is to the coal grate?  The bowl on the new style is SOOOO shallow compared to the old its seems like you would have to be careful not to burn your food.  The spacing on my older JJ is 5" from grate to grate....wondering what yours is?

Those sound like a winner! I bet the new SJP weighs less, which is a good thing. The old ones were really heavy.

Oh man, here we have a local meat shop that makes their own bacon. They then grind the slabs up and make patties out of it. Yep ground bacon patties. They call them bacon sizzlers. Holy crap they are freaking awesome!!

That looks great dude!  The JJ seems like the perfect beach/tailgate grill.  I need to get one.

Alright...who other than Ron owns this grill?  I'd like to know the distance between the charcoal and cooking grate.  Thanks

Jeff-I dont own a new SJP but have read that the distance is 1.5" less than the old style SJP.   Im wondering if the release of the new style will increase demand (and therefore price) or decrease demand of the old style SJP.  I like the old style but wouldnt use it for a high heat sear without a mod....a nod to the new design I guess.
