Default Awesome BBQ

Someone recommended this ORION BBQ COOKER (Home Depot $139) and I have to say it makes the most amazing Ribs, Chicken, Pork Chops and Salmon steaks I've ever eaten. Everything I've cooked in it so far has been awesome.

It's just amazing and to cook/smoke six racks of ribs it only takes an hour and a half and they are perfect. Just set it and forget it. No worries about burning or under cooking. Just fall off the bone chicken and ribs. You can even cook a whole turkey in it (I can't wait until Thanksgiving) and add smoking chips if you want.

Just don't forget the homebrew!

I know your serious but this line,

Sounds like an energetic infomercial.

In any event I got my first smoker last month, its one of those tall square ones. (propane) And I love it! But its a full smoker and it takes half a day to cook in!

Looks intriguing, but all those exposed coals would just be asking for trouble with my two young sons.

Congrats on the score, Thwizzit!

BBQ's my other "thing". Love getting the smoker out in the warm weather!

That's how I feel :-) It's so easy. You don't have to keep checking it and it comes out perfect every time :-)

Sorry, I haven't taken any yet. I usually can't wait to start eating. I'll remember to take some this weekend.

Yeah, it's the same with the Big Green Egg, but there's something about stepping outside with a cold beer and a stogie and checking on the Q anyway. I especially like it during the winter on overnight cooks. The cool crisp air, the stars are out, and the aroma of smoked brisket or pork go well with adult beverages.

I saw those at Home Depot while looking at new BBQ's for my old man for Father's Day. I thought they looked pretty interesting, but was curious how well they worked.

Well, I think it works great. I've never BBQ'd so well :-) I definitely recommend it.

It's pretty cool. There is a drip pan inside that you can add a bit of water to when you cook fish to help steam it a bit and the wood chips go on the inside around the drip pan. The charcoal stays on the outside so you don't get any of the carcinogens on the meat, you don't get flame ups and you also put a few coals on top which helps circulate the heat inside so everything cooks evenly.

I have another charcoal grill to do burgers and such but I now use this for the ribs, chicken and fish and you can cook a 20 pound turkey in 2hrs.

This Thanksgiving will be better than last years TurDucken!!!
