Your favorite outdoor cooking method ???

I have three ways of cooking outdoors. Deep fish frying that I do not use but a few times each year. Then there is the Cajun Cooker with the water pan and slow cooking. Great for chicken, turkey and deer meat.

This is the Sherman Tank Grille. I got this from a friend that got it from his grandfather who had it built on a platform in the gulf of Mexico. Grandpa passed and he sold it to me. 3/8" steel will hold about four birds cut up and takes about ten pounds of charcoal to fire up. I have no idea what it weighs in at but is his one heavy tank. If you have a green egg or other ways you enjoy cooking out post here please.

If you like a good beef steak then this pit when good and hot will do a medium rare porter house right. Add a glass of red and a good salad and you living good One other think I like on that tank is Mahi or Yellowfin Tuna my favorite is Red Snapper. Making you hungry yet

We have a charcoal grill. But my favorite is camping and cooking over an open fire, now that is living, best food there is.

Nothing on the gril had tasted good of late so...

... ditched the propane grill for outdoor cooking and got me a Lodge habachi.



Not big but can handle cooking for four.

Outdoors bought indoors: Also have taken to using a sort of Ruth Chris method: cast iron skillet indoors for steaks to sear it and then pop it into the oven with a dollup of good salty butter (as our New Yawk neighbor, she says, "it's da butt-ah").

We still have the Cajun Cooker for slow stuff, but the crock pot is also great for (indoors) non - smoked fare.

I've got a Weber gas grill that I'm about to replace and I've got one of these:

...I almost never use even though it's really easy. I'm not very good at planning ahead.

I'm a Weber charcoal grill fan. Been using them for decades... I also have a big smoker for smoking turkeys etc. but for grilling, the weber kettle is the best!

I had one of those in college too. That might be the way of the future seeing that we have a empty nest now. One boneless skinless chicken breast for the wife and a good beef steak for me. Joepole how much meat does that meat locker of your cook at one time ?

I use one of these babies with my Weber Grill... I'm a true-blue old-school purist, what else can I say?

I have the small model, not one of those crazy $7,000 jobs. Mine holds a few chickens or maybe three briskets, it was well under a grand.

I saw a show on Discovery (or FOOD) about these BBQ cookoffs. These guys spend $10,000+ on BBQ pit/trailers then drive to contests around the country to compete.... Some trailers are insane.. Ricky Bobby would be proud! Shake and Bake!!!
