I've seen topics about what are good beers or best game day foods. I need a new grill and I'm eye-balling a new Weber grill. So I ask what are you grilling with?
Brinkman Smoker/ Charcoal Grill Combo from Home Depot! You can either use it for a smoker or a charcoal grill. Both sides can burn charcoal. I use high grade charcoal such as Lazarri Mesquite and also add good smoking woods (different varieties).

It was not until recently that I had learned the true flavors of good smoked meat. It is just a delicious thing and so so tender. I've got a buddy whos dad used a old large water heater and turned it into a smoker. I'm looking forward to personally getting into it. Good post OP as I to am curious. Best wood for smoking anybody? Techniques? Slow cooking stuff?
Want my soul to feel brand new like a fresh coat of paint, we can make it anything but blue anything but blue
Basically the exact set up I have too.... Smoked some ribs last week and were PERFECT!
Same here. It's fantastic.
Treeger pellet smoker is excellent. We seldom use are Weber grill anymore.
I use the chargriller from Lowes. It has charcoal on one side and propane on the other. I also purchased the optiinal smoker barrel attachment. I like it for the propane during the week and charcoal and smokin on weekends.
I use the basic Weber grill. I am looking to puchase a smoker this summer. I like using the hardwood charcoal vs. the basic Kingsford brands, the flavor is much better and the stuff burns longer and hotter. I also use cedar kindling or some other kind of kindling to start the fire. I am anti gas and anti lighter fluid.
Where did you get the Treeger from?
Big Green Egg. Get the large size. Seems almost too simple but once you taste anything from one you will be impressed. Just have to figure out how to transport this big boy to a tailgate.
all the grilling you need........bricks, charcoal, grate and some assortment of alcohol.
I have a Weber and love it! The quality is so much better then most grills. They are worth every penny.

For those of you who are looking to get a smoker, the Weber Smokey Mountain Cooker is excellent. I purchased one a couple of years ago and have been very pleased. It maintains its temperature and is easy to learn/use.
I use the Weber Smokey Mountain Cooker. It can hold up to 60 lbs. of meat. When it comes to different types of wood I like the apple and cherry chunks. Just make sure you use 100% all natural lump charcoal. It won't give your meat that burnt smoky taste. I also recommend using a digital wireless thermometer, the less you open up the smoker the better. Turkey and chicken are my favorites to smoke. They just seem to really soak in all the smoke flavor better than other meats. If you do start smoking try brining a turkey in cranberry juice over night and smoking it.
Couldn't agree more. I have had other smokers but nothing compares to the Big Green Egg. We have been using that for a ton of stuff and it is fantastic. Will be smoking a prime rib this weekend and some stuffed jalapenos. Yummy!
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder
I too own an Egg and love it. Very pricey compared to most charcoal grills/smokers and it weighs about 400lbs but totally worth it.
Let me begin by saying I agree with those above, smoking fills gaps in flavor like nothing else and charcoal is better than gas.
That being said, here's my practical experience. You can't go wrong with a Weber!
Back when I finished school and was heading out on my own money was tight. I wanted a nice grill but it was hard to justify the expenditure. My girlfriend and I were eating out a lot at the time and we figured that grilling at home 3 nights a week would save at least $10/week in food costs. Do the math and that's about $240 per yearly grilling season. So I was comfortable spending about $500 knowing that we'd recoup the investment in a little over 2 years, and Weber's are supposed to last. We got a Weber Genesis Silver B (a low-mid level Weber model) that was retail $600 for only $400 b/c it was a floor model and the lid handle was broke (they gave me a replacement handle and grill cover for free).
That was 8 years ago and I still have the same grill. It burns like the day I brought it home except now the interior lid has a 1/8" layer of carbon "seasoning" that imparts amazing rich flavors to anything I grill. In fact my wife wants me to upgrade and we have $5,000 set aside for a top of the line Wolf but I don't want to pull the trigger I love my old Weber so much.
I have a similar setup but it's a Webber. Awesome
Big Green Egg. I have had mine for at least 10 years, you can't go wrong with it . Unbelievable flavor.
Just got a weber genesis with natural gas hookup. I love it! It has the sear sear station for steaks and the option for rotisserie as well. Weber all the way!
