Charcoal Grilles

Post by confedneck » Sun Jan 09, 2011 9:20 pm

This is an extension of the "Smokers" thread.

Told my mom I wanted 3 grates and a lid for a 22.5 weber to build my smoker. Instead she bought me a 22.5 weber and a chimney starter. It's all assembled and ready to use. I've never owned a good charcoal grille (unless you count a smokey joe). What's the best way to season this thing for use?

spray the grates and light it off with a small amount of charcoal under each grate.
Do it 2 or 3 times .

Then fire it up and let it roar.

Gas?? We got no stickin gas.

We got gas, small cans for the small portable tabletop grill and camp stove. Oh, and after a good steak...

I agree: you can't beat a Weber. The temperature indicator would stick at a certain point on my Weber Smoky Mountain Cooker even after it cooled. If I tapped on the thermometer, the gauge would return to a normal position.

I called Weber to just ask them if this was normal. The next thing I knew they were mailing me an entire new thermometer assembly, free of charge. They are a great company with great customer service.
