Grills, not barbecues.

I can't wait to get a house so I can set up a barbecue... I'd use it more than the stove.

...without the camera rolling.

But low-powered remote control airplane fuel is still OK, right?
 
2012-04-09 10:55:39 AM  
I used acetone in a pinch over the weekend. Please note it was for a small firepit and not a cooking fire. Still I felt like an idiot for attempting it.

Worked though...
 
2012-04-09 10:56:24 AM  
Heh, I've used that method before.

A couple years ago I got a newer Weber with the gas ignition system. I haven't used the chimney since.

YT is blocked at the office, so I'll just tell you that the way a real man ignites his BBQ is with liquid oxygen and a magnesium igniter strip.

Yes, there's a video.

I came here for the same reason. Possibly the greatest invention ever.
 
2012-04-09 11:03:46 AM  
As long as I can still use gasoline to start my propane grill.
 
2012-04-09 11:04:11 AM  
Actually I use a MAPP gas torch to light off my lump (not briquettes) charcoal in the grill.

Anybody dumb enough to spray any flammable liquid on to an already ignited fire is trying hard to be Darwin award recipient.

I remember telling my bro-in-law to use a chimney to start his fire. He ran and got one, and while I was not watching him, he doused it liberally with starter fluid anyway.

After about 5 minutes, it looked like a freaking jet engine stood up on its nose.

This.

Using fuel on your food is retarded.

From the smell of things, I don't think my neighbors use charcoal, they just float their burgers in a vat of flaming lighter fluid.

Chimneys are the way to go if'n you are using charcoal. I have since inherited a natural gas grill. I can run it all day if needed. It is built in so at so me point I will probably have to replace it. Loves me some BBQ. I will do it in the rain if needed,Nothing having a good brewski and firing up some tri-tip or hot links, burgers, etc...

I use lump charcoal and I use a weed burner to get it started for my UDS. fark briquettes.. that shiat's nasty.
 
2012-04-09 11:07:59 AM  
You can make your own grill chimney with a Number 10 can, a punch-type can opener and a wire coat hanger. Just use pliers to pull it off the charcoal when you get white tips on the charcoal.

Rookie mistake. At no point should the wood you smoke with be on fire. If you use chips you should soak them in water for 30 minutes and apply directly to already lit coals.

So easy, the wife can light it. Well, at least that is how I sold it. It is not an easy thing to rationalize a $300 charcoal grill... to a woman.

That's not true. It will work for any non-match light charcoal. Personally I use either of these two.

assets.smokingmeatforums.comfarm3.static.flickr.com

I find with lump wood, it burns faster and hotter. So I use natural wood briquettes for long smokes because I get more uniform heat.
 
2012-04-09 11:13:41 AM  
Meh! Try liquid oxygen instead:

I use the lump in my ugly drum smoker. You can control the air intake on it. When I smoke pork buts which are 14 - 16 hours smokes, I one basket will do it and not have to refill it. I stopped using briquettes when lump was easier to get around here.

You married the wrong woman. My wife insisted we get the $400 - 22.5 inch Weber Rocky Mountain Smoker on our anniversary instead of going out to dinner.
