The Bearded Newbie Smoker


Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

New to the world of BBQ'ing now that I have a house with a garden, the grill was the second thing I bought.

Seen a lot about indirect grilling, for low & slow methods, but looks like everyone uses a Weber Kettle or ceramic egg for this. Can it be done using the charcoal side in a dual fuel BBQ? I'm thinking chimney starter, briquettes into one side, water tray on the other with the meat cooking above the water.

Picture of the grill below!

Welcome to the forum, you could definitely use the charcoal side for low and slow and I suspect even the gas side if you can have individual burners lit (someone with gas experience will be able to confirm). 

If using charcoal I think you would be better off using the minion method (Google it) to light the coals so you only have a small heat source that burns for a long time, water pan as you say, some smoking wood and away you go!

Good luck.

Welcome to the forum!

1st thing I bought when I moved into my house 10 years ago was a grill😁

I started out on a 'el cheapo' offset smoker and that worked well enough for low and slow (providing the outside temperature was higher than 13C haha). 

Your grill certainly looks like a much better grill than I had so I would assume it works a treat👍

I agree with pittmab suggesting the minion method 🍻
