    I am with you there. I had a Beaumark before this, it would never even sniff what my Napolean can do.

    And, this model that I have has an infrared side burner that heats up to like 800* to sear steaks and meat like a boss. Then, you can finish them on the 'cue as nature intended.

    WTF is wrong with a few of these airline pilots lately? One last yr takes his jet full of passengers and slams it into the Indian ocean...or so we are all lead to believe. The Germanwings co-pilot who locks the pilot out of the cockpit and then decides it would be a good idea do slam into the French alps at 500+ mph? How do they go about screening these lunatics out and now based on this ordeal the idea of being able to seal of the cockpit so nobody can access may not be all that bright of an idea.

    I just have a plain old weber basic. It's old though, probably 15 years. It has a literal pan for the ashes. No rust at all,

    Weber makes kick ass grills. A Weber and some good charcoal and that is about all you need.

    I got my weber for my housewarming party.

    I buy the biggest bag of lump hardwood charcoal I can find. Chimney starter with a little newspaper.

    I get all my beef from my uncle who raises them right. Although I do like a big thick steak, I get mine cut at 1" from the butcher. Get more steaks, and with the size of them, more than 1" is just too big for a typical meal. Every once in a while I'll grab a 2 or 2.5" set of prime grade ribeyes from the same butcher. For steaks that big, you have to set up the grill correctly.

    Pour all the coals on one side of the grill. Leave the top of the grill off for 2-5 minutes after dumping the coals with all vents wide open. That gets them really rocking, you want them super hot. When you can't hold your hand over the cooking grate for more than a half second, it's perfect. Lay the steaks directly over the coals. 1.5 minutes, NO MORE, on each side and move them to the non direct portion of the grate. Set the top on, shut off all vents. I leave them there without turning or opening the grill for about 3-4 minutes. That typically comes out a perfect medium rare.

    For my 1" steaks, I skip the moving them to the non-direct heat and only go 1 minute after the flip. Rare side of medium rare...and where I like it.

    Forgot the absolute most important step to great steaks. Tent with foil and let them rest for 5-7 minutes before cutting into them. This is absolutely a requirement.

    On 17, yesterday. Son-in-law rips a long, gushy fart. So, I say... "Well, that just goes to prove you and your mother-in-law are genetically related!" Somehow, I think that comment got filtered by to my wife. I may need a place to live for the next few months!!!!

    (1) Making some initial posts on Shottalk through my iphone in the morning; bleary eyed and without reading glasses.
    (2) Checking in later in morning at work to see morning posts look like they were made by a retard who failed grade one.

    Maybe if you'd had reading glasses, you'd have passed Grade One!! :)

    Went and looked at a house today...

    4 bedroom 2.5 bath colonial style....one owner built in the mid 70's. Solidly built, well taken care of. Absolutely gorgeous kitchen.

    Need to figure out what I can sell my house for to see if we have enough to get us into this.
