My grill/barbecue/smoker setup

6 posts in this topic

We'll I just finished taking all my outdoor cooking appliances apart an cleaning them for the summer, now that it's finally here. I've got some pork chops defrosting for tonight, and because the wife loved RH's salmon cake so much, I may try them on the grill with a little smoke added.

On the right is my Weber Spirit 210E, the gas grill I don't use much, but a nice grill. In the center is my trusty Cookshack SM009 electric smoker. It's smokes everything great, except it's a little small for sausage. And last but not least, the best barbecue Weber ever made, the Performer. This is my go to barbecue.

I have a question: does anyone know what that chain and spring thing on the second photo is?

Nice setup Coop!!!

My guess the chain/spring thing is intended to be the same as the chain/spring on your screen door to the house.

Sweet! I agree Cooperman. I love my Performer. Had it 3 years or so. Nice to have everything right where I want it and a place to set my beverage. I may opt to donate my old original 22 1/2" Weber to some friend's for their cabin and get one of those 26" jobs for the bigger turkeys, larger group cooking, etc. I think Jim Almquist has one of those. Does your Performer have the plastic table or is it the newer one with the metal surface? Looks like a nice smomer set up too! :D

Nice setup, Coop!

 

"I have a question: does anyone know what that chain and spring thing on the second photo is"? 

 

 Of course I do!!! In case the igniter doesn't work, ya wedge a paper match in the end of that circle, light it, and insert into grill...*POOF*  (seriously) Old school stuff. And, I think the Spirit is the one on the left...that's what I have. :)

Thanks all, 

and thanks Reb. I've been looking at that thing for a couple of years wondering what it could be used for. 

Dotch, it's the plastic top, I think it was purchased within a couple of years after they came out. The only thing I don't like about it, is it stains easily.

Yup, same issue here. Wondered if that was part of the metal top on the new ones. That and setting anything super hot on it.

    • Honestly I'd rather just face the Hawks whenever we get our shot, we are either good enough or we are not. This the first year we have been better than them for the entire season, I say bring em on. I don't want to trade anyone away right now, havingn a guy like Scandella on the bottom pair makes us that much better. Throw some picks at a rental and keep our depth, no reason to make any drastic moves. We should be warry of San Jose too, they have a very solid team and made the trip last year but everyone else should be beatable if we play like we can and don't run into a hot goalie.
    • Pope suggests it's better to be an atheist than a bad Christian. CNN   Count me among those saying, "I don't share your beliefs, but you're one awesome pope. Keep on rocking."    

    • What is more likely, that your half of the media, gov & courts are honest and trustworthy and the other half is trying to destroy the world. Or that both sides are playing the public to enrich & empower themselves via a broken and corrupt system. Picking a side in this mess is playing the game by their rules. Your basic salami tactics to control the masses.
    •     Both from the same news outlet.
    •   Then why are you asking me this question?     Isn't that the way it's done now that we are in the Trump era?
    • Sounds like there is still some good snow up the Gunflint. I sent an email to Bearskin lodge about their web cam not working and got a reply.   "That's correct. The repaired webcam has broken again, unfortunately, so only the same picture gets sent.  It is fairly inaccessible because of deep snow, but someone will be going out soon to take it down so we can get it fixed again.  It will probably have to be put up in a new place, which will disappoint people who have been keeping running snaps of the photos to make video.   For what it's worth, it looks exactly the same now as it did when that picture was taken.  Winter tends to look the same everyday here."   Sue Bearskin Lodge   -----Original Message----- From: Steve A Sent: Thursday, February 23, 2017 11:10 AM To: stay@bearskin.com Subject: From the Bearskin Contact Form   From: Steve A Zip: 55429   Message Body: Whats up with your web cam? It's had the same picture for a month. There are a lot of us snowmobilers who watch your cam to know if there is any snow left up there and if we should come up sledding or not. Can you check to see if it's working?  Thanks.  
    • Any combo of Dunn/Jones is not something you can build a contender around. Either could eventually become a decent backup; neither looks to be leadership/starter material. I would have no problem with trading Rubio for another PG, as long as it is the right dude. 

      Much like Rubio, Rose just isn't worth the salary he will command. 
    • Anyone who took Brett Hite is a happy camper! Wayyyy too early yet to get too excited or too worried. Bobby Lane stuck an 8+, and his total weight is 17 and change, so he could vault up is he makes a couple of good culls.
