    Fire, fire, fire... how do I stop this?

    Yes, it has three rows of gas burners, each with an inverted "V" shield.  I have cooked injected chicken in there, which has dripped a LOT all over inside there.  I guess I just need a good cleaning. What's the best way to clean out a gas grill like this? ............... Never mind, I just...

    Fire, fire, fire... how do I stop this?

    It's a new BBQ, but there is certainly drippings around in there from use.  I guess I need to tend more to cleaning the grill and the heat shields that are right under the grills, and also do that before each use. Is it easier to clean when it's hot?

    Fire, fire, fire... how do I stop this?

    Thanks for all the tips here, everyone. I do have a couple of questions.  We spatchcocked two large chickens, Slaughterhouse brined them overnight, olive oiled them and sprinkled with Cajun spices. Should they go breast down on the grill while being smoked?  Should they be turned over at some...

    First real try at smoked chicken

    Is that how you smoke meat with a regular BBQ unit? Coals pushed over to one side of the grill and chicken on the opposite side (not above the coals)? That's sort of like baking the chicken, right? Indirect heat? (Please forgive my newb questions.)
