I plan to fire up the CG this weekend and do a little grilling. I grilled a pork loin last night which turned out great. I have also grilled some burgers and brats. I have the CG with the side firebox. I generally use the indirect method, What side of the grill would you recommend building the fire (stack side or fiebox side)? I will not be using the side firebox. I have extend the smoke stack to grill level.

Harris Teeter has leg quarters on sale for $0.29 a pound so I think will be grilling some chicken and burgers.

I plan to pick-up some apple wood and smoke a few Boston Butts next week.

Stand by for photos...

Once when I did a beercan chicken I made two small piles of charcoal on each side and had the chicken in the middle. Since you extended the inside stack I guess it doesnt matter which side you put the fire. Also when I grill I throw some wood chips on the fire for some smoke flavor, makes everything better Smile

I put a chunk of hickory on my lump last night. The pork loin turned out great tasted smoked and even had a small smoke-ring.

I also have a Char-griller and when grilling indirect I make a pile
on each side and grill in the middle. I'm grilling ABT's, shrimp kabobs,
leg quarters and a few burgers tomorrow. I tried ABT's for the 1st time
last weekend and my wife and I LOVED them.

I guess I will do the same and place my foil drip pan in the center. Should be a nice day for grilling, high of about 46.

Got home late from the coffee shop and fired up the grill. I rubbed down a chuck roast, stuffed a few potatoes and prepped a large onion for carmelizing.
Stay tuned for a few pictures.

This roast turned out quite nice. I threw a chunk of apple on the coals, and ended up with a nice smoke ring.
