I just clean them as I go. And I use Goo Gone BBQ cleaner. After years of barbecuing, I finally figured out that if you take care of the equipment, they’d take care of you too. I’ve lost so many for being messy and lazy, so you can say I learned the hard way.
I wish I were retired. I have a long way to go. But you know, when I do retire, it’s going to be BBQ time all the time.
Can I be your friend? WOW! I love that playground you have.
An offset and a 4-6 burner gasser and I'll be set.
I see you have the GOSMS with the smaller cast iron smoke box. They had two types at Lowes when I bought mine and I got the one with the larger box. Some folks take the box out and use a cast iron frying pan in its place.
Add pictures of Bikini Girls with the grills and then we're talking a "Smokin Hot Calender"
Big D you could probably fit a Bikini Girl on the lid of the Summit D just like the obligatory girl on the car hood picture! She'd be our grilling cover girl! Heck thats a better hood ornament modification than the pig with wings! Now I just need to figure out where to find one.
I'd buy a copy of that calendar!
I don't know where my wife would let me keep it, but I'd buy one!
And you are my friend.
I love my GOSMS. If you remember I mentioned that I don’t use the lid on the cast iron smoke box, this gives me better smoke. It’s almost like using a cast iron frying pan. When I bought mine, Low’s did not have the larger model. So far I’m happy with it though. It’s also great for overnight cooking (it does not require much monitoring).
I do remember, it was upon you advise that I also removed the lid from my smoker box as well. It's a lot easier to add wood and I can use larger chunks. I now use the lid as a bridge between my GOSMS gas and GOSMS charcoal to set my remote probe thermometer on. It works great with the magnetic base. Thanks for the tip.
