    I have one rule when it comes to the grill.
    No FISH touches my grill! It's for meat only!

    I have only BBQed dinner since returning from Poland, ten days now. No end in sight.

    I BBQed halibut one time years ago. It was great but expensive.

    Fish is good on the grill, especially Halibut. I have a heap of venison/pork Brats and they are great on the grill. I prefer to cook with wood rather than charcoal, which like most coal probably has mercury in it. Dry chunks of Hickory, Pecan, Walnut, Apple, Mesquite or Cherry wood is great. It burns longer and tastes better than charcoal and is usually cheaper since you can harvest it yourself.
    I don't do propane.

    FIRST Rules of BBQ / Smoking - LOW HEAT 230 - 250 degrees F and a sh!tload of time.

    GRILLIN' - 300 degrees F or more. You can use this heat range for grilling slab pig ribs in the 3 stacked method.
    After dry rubbing your three slabs and letting them rest over-night ( I also peel the inner rib membrane off before the rub.) Let your favorite wood soak in water over-night too. Get the ribs out of the Frig 1st thing in the morning and allow them to get to room temp while you get the grill going. The grill should have the coals spread but one side should be cooler. Do Not Put Ribs Over Direct Hot Side. If started and up to temp easy then let the meat wait until at room temp. Cold meat is more app to burn on its surfaces and not absorb as much smoke.

    Stack the ribs on top of one another, lung side/ concave side - DOWN ( I do this during the rub and chill period) and place on pre-heated grill away from heat source ( a grill thermometer on the grill surface helps you know where to maintain the heat) put hood/top down, little to no vent open.
    I rotate the ribs Bottom to Top / Top to Middle/ Middle to Bottom about 45 minutes at each position ( your time may vary). During a rotation is also a good time to throw another chunk or two of wood on the direct side. Keep the smoke up.
    AFTER a COMPLETE ROTATION wrap each slab in HEAVY Aluminum Foil. This time line them up, Closet to heat source to furthest away ( A Wire Upright Rib Rack comes in handy but not necessary) and Rotate occasionally for the next two hours.
    Remove from foil after two hours (TOTAL Cookin' Time 4-4.5 Hours) and spread on your favorite sauce(s) on the ribs ( I like mine ribs DRY - No sauce. as I want to taste the wood smoke "Au Natural"). Grill open for 20 minutes for sauce to glaze . Then remove from the grill and let rest for about 10-15 minutes. Then.......CHOW Time.

    This style of cooking allows the ribs to baste themselves in their own juices as they rotate from bottom to top.

    This is my Favorite Rib Style Cookin'
    My moufs waterin' as I typed.

    Ah yes, the season has begun. I'm grilling brats tonight for the 2nd day in a row along with sliced red potatoes right on the grate coated in olive oil, black pepper and tarragon. I forgot to get carrots which also grill really nicely directly on the grate.

    I look forward to grilling burgers in the near future.

    Here is my usual burger routine, we'll call it an EricTheCat burger:
    Season the ground beef with black pepper and a good amount of garlic
    After flipping the burger, I pile on as many onion slices as I can fit with a few jalapeno pepper slices
    When burger is almost ready, melt pepper jack or smoked cheddar cheese on the onions and brown the buns
    When done cooking I add a slice or two of tomato, some mayo and some spicy mustard and it is ready. No ketchup allowed, sorry. ;)

    The latest model has 2 wheels to make it easier to tote around. They are basically a metal box with a propane burner and a drawer for charcoal and wood chips.

    Couldn't wait for pictures! Ate them quick. For the record the polish with German mustard was the best, but the hot [not really hot - they don't seem to make those any more] with hot giardiniera was just behind it.

    Take 25% for AUD but yes we pay up for most things. You guys really don't know how lucky you are up there in the centre of the empire. You get the range and price, sometimes I pay more to ship from the US than the item is worth! Not so from China... normally free shipping from them... go figure?!

    Some great ideas here.

    Rainy today, so here's one from last September. Corn grills really nicely in the husk. First soak the corn in water for 20+ minutes, then grill on the grate for 30 min or so, flipping occasionally. You may be surprised how easy it is to shuck the corn after it is cooked, the "strings" fall right off. (edit, it is worth noting that the zucchini in this pic was horribly over cooked)

    Many years ago when I was in Florida we made smokers for Mullet out of old refrigerators. Burn a refrigerator in a bonfire. Then take the metal shell, screw in some metal refrigerator shelves and load it with split mullet. Build a small green wood fire in the bottom and Mmmm Mmmm Good!

    Good old American engineering. When I was a young buck we would rip the guts out of a washing machine, line it with heavy plastic then drop a half keg of our favorite brew inside. Surround the keg with ice and spend the weekend draining it along with as much BBQ we could generate. Ahhh, the good old days!

    LOW (temp) SLOW (hours) SMOKE ( Fav. Hardwood, Fruit wood ,or Charcoal).

    Leave FAT ON. There is very little on a tenderloin any way. AND MIGHT want to wrap in BACON if NO FAT cover. START FAT SIDE DOWN. PROTECT the MEAT.
    ANY RUB - should have been put on lastnight BUT you can salvage that 1st thing this morning. Chill for an hour and then sit out to get to room temp.

    GRILL TEMP: 230- 250 F.
    COOK to Internal Temp of 180- 190 degrees F

    IF you are gonna SAUCE brush on in the last 15-20 minutes of cooking. Heat will caramelize sauce.

    GOOD LUCK and ENJOY
