This summer, circumstances led to me BBQing at least one meal every weekend. It was great.

I've kept at it fairly frequently this fall and winter, and have learned a couple things I would like to pass on.



#1 it is dark as hell by suppertime, get a headlamp.

#2 that clean plate you brought out to put the cooked food onto is ice fucking cold. Hold the plate a foot over the flames and warm it for a minute while the food is finishing up or it will suck all the heat out of the food before you even get inside.

#3 your neighbours already thought you were crazy, but now they know.

Real men just sear their steaks with a blowtorch after cutting them out of the nearest cow.

You have to age the beef first.

Earth First!
(We can strip mine the rest later.)

I clicked in here from another comment thread with the phrase "bit rot" on my mind.

Mmm, rot-aged beef.

Or get rabies. Also don't do that. --scrymarch

well aimed, high power spotlights or floodlights (and porch light) can help with that ...  I also put the plate in the microwave for two or three bursts of 10 seconds to pre-warm it.

The chimney starter cools down quickly after you put the lit charcoal in the grill.


alternate use for hot chimney starter by clover kicker (4.00 / 3) #6 Thu Dec 08, 2016 at 12:27:34 PM EST
I've been using it to scorch the grass growing between the pavers in the walkway, works pretty good if you do it often enough.

That's not a bad idea.
