Weber Grill question.

Postby Classic Finn » Sun Mar 14, 2010 4:00 pm

Just wondering how many of you folks use a Weber Grill for your camping ? Weve been thinking of purchasing one so thought we,d ask.

As many of you know we enjoy lot of things American. :D So this is one we went to look at on several occasion at the stores here. We saw the Weber Q 100 and Weber 120 or was it just Weber Q.. Its the smallest of the Models but it seemed to be appropriate for a tear outing.

Are we right on this :thinking: ? It looks sturdy and well made as much as the good warranty it comes with.

We have the Weber Q, it is a great cooker, and we often smother the coals when we complete cooking and save for next meal. :thumbsup:

All right..nice :thumbsup: Wife wants the gas Q Weber instead of the charcoal. Using the 2.5kg or was it 3 kg gas bottles that are available here.

Myself I prefer the old original grill with charcoal.. Gee a family feud here. :lol:

Last year my Weber charcoal grill came on every camping trip. Love it! Vastly prefer it for dinner to my propane Coleman stove.

I use a charcoal chimney starter.

We take our smokey Joe junior every outing.

Since we have gotten into dutch ovens so intently it serves as a windscreen almost as often as a grill here lately.

Image
yes that is snow . 28 degrees at the shivaree the grill helped to concentrate the heat.

Image
With the bottom vent in the grill the coals breath better. Here we are searing an english roast for my very 1st dutch oven meal.

Image
and here it is and in 28 minutes it was gone gone gone with 6 hungry guys help.

Image
a breakfast cassarole anyone ?

Image
or how about a meatloaf ?

Image
ok ya caught me we actuall used it for pork chops on the grill this outing.

A 12" dutch oven fits sweetly into the 14" diameter Smokey Joe Jr.

Raining and cold yesterday and I was slow grilling a pork tenderloin in my little Smokey Joe Jr on the deck. Kinda makes me wanta get busy campin' again :thumbsup:

I also have a 14" Smokey Joe that I use for my dutch ovens. I like it because I can also grill on it, serving a double purpose.

It will depend on what kind of cooking you plan on doing. If you do a lot of grilling (direct heat high temps) the Weber is a fine pit. It can do BBQ, but you may have problems holding temps.

I have a Big Green Egg (actually 2 of them), it's another subculture like Teardrops and Dutch ovens. It's similar to a Weber but it is made of ceramic. It is nicely insulated and holds temps well in cold weather (which I'm sure you have a lot of) for BBQ. It will also get up to 600F to sear steaks and grilling. My XL has been smoking for 24hrs on one load of charcoal, I BBQd 2 briskets back to back.
