Bought a pos charcoal grill back in the summer and loved the results. So a few weeks back, when I knew I had a road trip coming I started looking for a jumbo joe. Wanted a quality portible charcoal grill. Found a used one on a buy and sell and started tinkering around. Did one mod, added a thermometer from onlyfire. Pork chops, steak, hamburgers, chicken wings. Watching far too many YouTube videos about kettles and now I'm hooked! I've bought 2 more 22" kettles and I'm on the lookout for a wsm. lol...The traeger is still the daily driver(when I'm home), just too easy, but I don't think I'll ever go back to propane fired again... We had a night off yesterday and thought well I should try some ribs on this thing. Baby backs 2-2-45 at 225° the whole way. Some mesquite chunks and the minion method produced, fall off the bone deliciousness(I prefer some bite). The pictures suck and I couldn't get a decent cut to show the sweet smoke ring. All I can say is damn, jumbo joe where have you been all my life, lol. Thinking of doing a spatchcock chicken tomorrow.
