Just want to give a big HELLO to all of my new BBQ friends. Here in Washington I seem to be the only person I know that is into BBQ. Here BBQ is cooking on the ol' propane grill. I'll admit I started out that way, but I couldn't resist still throwing wood chips on the lava rock. Yes I was replacing lava rock constantly because of all of the ash. I have 6 different smokers and grills on the patio now. My new pride and joy is a Traeger Grill. I put it to bed every night, cover it so it doesn't get cold. My wife is a little angry, I say every night, "goodnight baby, I love you" to my grill! Everyone that eats what I cook absoultly loves the food, but no one is willing to put in the time to do it themselves! Are people so busy that they cannot relax enough to sit around and smoke some food and enjoy their company?
