I bought an electric grill a year ago, and it was the best 60zł i ever spent (@ LeClerc). Now I can make burgers and lamb kebabs like back home and on tv, great for turkey grilling and thanksgiving food too, I highly recommend it :)

It`s a good idea but how much are you spending on electricity.----Here we use natural gas which is way cheaper to use.

I still use old fashioned charcoal and wood chips. I prefer the smoky flavor this sort of grilling gives meats. And it's a cheap way to go.

That's the method I prefer too. Makes the best BBQ chicken and corn on the cob, in the world! Also adds a nice atmosphere and ambiance to an outdoor gathering.

Indeed! C on the C is great on the grill. I can cook just about anything on my old grill, from meat and veggies to sides to frozen pizza...

Also adds a nice atmosphere and ambiance to an outdoor gathering.

For this reason too! Nothing beats a good old smoky grill...

George Foreman electric grill

They're good for indoors in the wintertime when you you don't feel like cooking outside in the cold.

The Los Angeles County fair kicked off over Labor Day weekend. Could smell the hypnotic BBQ aroma, during the millisecond of walking through the entrance gate. Too bad we don't have smellovision :)

And it works quickly too, You can cook a steak or burgers in 10 mins!

Winter, I hate it, and its coming soon.

We have already started to get cool at night,,,great summer though!!

Are you talking about the Weber "smokey Joe" ? I have one of those also.

You can take them anywhere, Picnic, beach etc

Theyre great!

I prefer gas grills, they are much cleaner. Maybe there is a little charcoal taste sacrifice, but not enough to deal with the mess! :)

Nope, I'm talking about the cheap-o $3.99 Walmart and Kmart specials. Use the grill a few times & out it goes, lol!

That's what I have. The classic Weber grill... round... black...

Not worth the sacrifice! And no mess, really... I just dump the ashes in my garden. It's good for the soil and keeps away garden pests.

I used to have a gas grill and got rid of it. You always run out of gas when the store is closed... and the little gas tubes always got clogged with spider webs. Bah...

I've had them too. They work great too, especially for camping or the beach. And when they die you just chuck em.

Yeah, the Smokey Joe is the little mini one it works great and you can take it anywhere!

Do you use a charcoal chimney to get them started? I refuse to use lighter fluid all you need is 2 pieces of newspaper with the chimney.

I seen those ones, they look like those aluminum baking pans,,lol

I bought the Weber baby Q and i am very happy with it. I used to buy the cheap grills and they never lasted more than one summer, this one is 'working' for the 3rd summer already and still not a speckle of rust. Love it.

I don't know what this is. I've heard of people using fire starters like you might use in your fireplace, but I wouldn't want to add those chemicals to my food. I just use some newspaper, some small wood scraps and a little charcoal lighter fluid. Once the wood ignites it keeps the charcoals burning.

Little hybachis. (sp)

This is because the Webs have a quality baked enamel finish and not just heat resistant paint.

It starts the coal evenly and in about 10 minutes you dump it in the grill and go! They sell these starter pellets but all you need is a couple newspapers

No, I never saw that before. It looks like this survival cooker I knew someone who had one once. It was hollow like that with a grill on top. He claimed he could thoroughly cook a burger in five minutes using nothing more than two pieces of newspaper. We thought he was crazy, but damned if it didn't work like he said. I guess it worked by concentrating all of the newspaper's energy... every bit of heat had to go up and past the meat.

The summer is almost over and the two of you are heavy into a grilling discussion. :)
I don't think I know anyone who does not like the BBQ flavor. People do amazing stuff on the grill: mushrooms (portabella), veggies, fish...besides the usual burgers and dogs.

They are all heaven on the palate.

I grill all year round. Not as much in the cold weather but I've been out there with snow falling. :)

It is yummy. Something so outdoorsy and primal about it. Grilling has grown in popularity in the past decade. I think before it was viewed as hick-ish. When I was a kid we'd barbecue but none of my friends parents did. Now everyone does it and grill prices go up into the thousand$.

My grill came with this cookbook with all kinda crazy ideas. I've never tried anything too serious, though, like a good roast or a whole turkey.

or a soda can alcohol stove.. even less of a mess. :)

kielbasa, baby!!! ;) :D

i actually always preferred regular wood fire to gas or charcoal but that's hard to do living back in the city.

charcoal is the best but when you're in a hurry after work,natural gas or propane is the way to go.

charcoal sucks donkey balls. wood or gas man :)

I have mine strategically wedged into a corner of the balcony.

I would kill for a smoker here...

I have a smoker and let me tell you that if you got time,it works well.For me,a working stiff,I don't have the time to smoke meat for 4 hours .

Seriously, go on. Rub it in.

I have to grill meat with gas because it's the only thing I can get away with on my balcony. I can often be found at home staring at the propane bottle dreaming of brisket.

That's like an old school survival stove. Survial tips called for always having a tin can with you when in the wilderness, just in case...

Do you guys have regular old commercial charcoal briquettes in P-Land? Kingsford? Matchlight?
I recently found this "natural" charcoal [brand?]. It comes in a big bag like the other but instead of being little preformed bricks it's real pieces of chard wood. You can see the wood grain and growth rings in some of the pieces. It works well, lights easier and makes a good taste on the food.

I find wal-mart carries all the varieties of briquettes you mentioned.

Check out this new pellet grill:

You fill the grill's hopper with compressed hardwood pellets (apple, cherry, garlic, mesquite, maple, pecan, hickory, etc.) and an augur lifts the pellets and drops them down a chute into a firebox. An electric igniter there starts burning the pellets. A draft fan helps maintain the burn-rate and a thermostat controls the temperature. The grill automatically maintains the set temperature, adding pellets as needed. A grease shield prevents flare-ups.
