    2020 Gratuitous Grilling/Griddlin/BBQ/etc. Thread

    New Year, New thread

    I finally got around to trying out my Christmas present to myself. It is a food pan carrier, basically a Cambro knockoff. I have to say I was very impressed with it for the price I paid. Mine holds 6 full size 2.5 inch deep steam table pans. It is heavy, and if it is full of food it will take 2 people to move it.

    I used it to transport 2 full pans of my cheesy hashbrown casserole to a Christmas party for our local Team RWB chapter. I pulled them out off the oven and loaded into the carrier, then onto the back of my truck in roughly 30 degree weather for a 30 minute drive. They then sat in the carrier inside the building for 2.5 hours while we grilled pork chops, drank a few beers, and waited for the others to arrive. Once everyone arrived and all the other food was ready, about 3 hours after pulling the pans out of my oven at home, I opened up the carrier and still could not touch the pans. It was like they were just out of the oven.

    I know they aren't for everyone and people say that a cooler will do the same thing, which I'm sure it will, but being able to stack 6 pans and get to the bottom one without removing the others is handy if you cook a lot like me. This thing is built like a tank, which is great because come BBQ comp season it will get used and abused.

    Other than that I have started off the new year with several cooks, buts, wings, a tri tip. Sadly no pictures though.

    Just bought one of these bad boys today. Since I live about 10 minutes from them, I was able to go to the showroom and talk with the owner about the company and their products. I already had done a fair bit of research, but talking with Matt (owner) at Grilla Grills really solidified why I chose them.

    I was already planning on dropping the $800 for the Kong grill, but Matt told me they had a couple "scratch and dent" models that were just cosmetic flaws that he didn't want to sell as new product because it didn't meet his quality standards. (again, just a top notch company). I picked one of the scratch and dent models out, and noticed there was a small chip in the porcelain inside the grill. Matt knocked $200 off for the cosmetic flaw. That's right boys and girls, I got it for $599.

    To top it all off, Matt offered to throw it in his pickup and deliver to my house after work since I didn't think it would fit in my wife's SUV. No charge.

    Seriously... you all need to check out Grilla Grills. Some seriously good grills at a great price. You won't find similar grills anywhere near their prices.

    Never done a pot roast on the grill before, so I thought I'd give it a try. It turned out amazing! Roast was on at 300 degrees for 4 hours. I threw in a pan of green beans, onions, and taters for the last hour and a half.

    My in-laws live in Holland. If I remember, the next time I go, I might stop by the plant.

    Im really digging this new grill. Did a 10lb pork butt today. Put my rub on it last night and got up this morning at 5:00 am to get it going. Grill was ready for the pork butt to go on at 6:00 am. Did an 8 hour cook, taking it off just before 2:00 pm. The butt held around 150 degrees for hours. Once it got to 165, I wrapped it in foil and put it back on for another 2.5 hours. Pulled it off at 205 degrees, and tented it for 30 minutes. Once I opened it up, the bone just slid right out. Threw some Sweet Baby Ray's on it, and topped it off with some homemade coleslaw. Simply amazing. And I only peeked at it once. That was the hardest part.

    Couple observations:

    1. I used around 5 lb of lump charcoal right off the bat since I didn't want to keep opening the lid to add more. Turns out that was way too much for an 8 hour cook. There was at least half left unburned when I pulled it off the coals. This grill seems to be super efficient.

    2. I need to invest in a good temperature controller. This grill holds temps really well, but I had to babysit it as it wanted to keep creeping up towards 300 degrees. Spent most of the cook with the dampers closed just to keep the temps down. I don't think I can afford a FlameBoss just yet, so will be doing some research on this one.

    3. This grill has turned my hobby into an obsession. It's really amazing what a difference good equipment can make.

    Looks pretty tasty. Having the right tools certainly makes bbq easier and more enjoyable. I'm rather spoiled with my pellet grill now and my propane smokers. Did 6 butts this weekend on my biggest smoker for a birthday party, and only I went out side to add wood chips twice and then pull the butts off.

    I was a little disappointed they are made in China, but I get it. They needed to find a way to be competitive. I'll check them out this summer when I go up to Holland.

    I have been planning on buying a new grill when I replace my deck but was looking more at a flattop. I may have to reconsider.

    There's lots of ________ on here who don't fit your particular stereotype, smearing us with goofball sophistry is what is out of line. It just makes gunowners look like *******s.

    Big fan of smoked almonds, but Iíve never heard of smoked peanuts. Hopefully better than boiled peanuts though?
