The DIY BBQ & Grilling Thread

Anybody here likes to grill? I know after the good weather starts I grill stuff at least 2-3 times a week (w/bad weather once a week), I only use charcoal & wood chips (better flavor). Also my grill is the rectangular type with attached temperature gauge on the cover.
Post pics of the things you can grill and how you do it if you want to share.
Below are some of the things I've grilled lately.

T-Bone Steak (Can also use Ribeye Steak for more tenderness)

I.5in thick (weights about 2lbs)
Grill temperature must be between 350-385F w/cover shut (I like medium rare) and cook for about 12mins, flip every 3min for a total of 12mins (max 15min) and use tongs to flip steak (if you poke it with a fork while is cooking the juices will leak out of the steak or if you cook it until is well done you must kill yourself after that, you son of a...)

To prepare steak I usually just spray it lightly with cooking oil (so spices can stick)

Spices I use are:
Powder Garlic
Poder Onion
Freshly ground Black Pepper
Red dry pepper flakes (the pizza packet kind)
Powder Cumin
Sea Salt
(all the above to taste)


Baby back or St Louis Ribs


These take at least 4hrs to smoke 2 racks of ribs at he same time, if smoked less time they won't be tender if temperature is not right they will either be too dry or take long to cook. Do not rush them, go watch porn or something

OK, you'll need:
Baby back or St Louis Ribs
BBQ rub (I get mine from a local BBQ restaurant)
BBQ Sauce
Charcoal & mesquite smoking chips
Aluminum container or pan w/water (to regulate temperature)

To get grill ready you'll need to put the charcoal just on one side usually the front and the aluminum container filled with 70% water place it on top of the charcoal and don't let water run low (add as needed), grill temperature must always be between 250-275F w/cover or lid shut or you'll fvck up the whole thing (add or remove charcoal until you reach the right temperature)
This pic shows how to place water container on top of charcoal. I warn you, no charcoal under the ribs! (not my grill found pic on the internetz, this grill is for noobs!)


To prepare ribs:
The membrane (the thin skin on the bone side of the rack) is a tough barrier that needs to go. By removing the membrane your ribs will be more tender and you will be able to get more flavor into the meat.

After this you can add the rub to taste (see pic below)


To smoke ribs:
Once you have your grill set up and ready is time to place your ribs on the grill and start smoking them, the cooking time is for at least 4 hrs and I usually flip them about every 45mins or so (I also add charcoal and wood chips as needed to maintain temperature and smoke) then on the last 30 mins I apply a coat of bbq sauce (to get that glossy look and sweet flavor) apply both sides of the ribs with a paint brush and turn every 15 min then presto!





This is a cheeseburger and if you don't know how to make one on the grill you have no business messing with the grill in the first place, go buy sum frozen food and throw it in the microwave or do yourself a favor by jumping off a cliff



disclaimer: If you set your house or other peeps property on fire go blame Obama...

So what you're telling us is that you don't actually like steak. Let me guess, you put ketchup on it, too.

Kosher salt and ground black pepper. Throw it on the grill (I use high heat), turn every two minutes. Cook for 8-10 minutes. Eat.

Actually, if you flip the steak often it will cook more evenly. Flipping it only once will result in thicker band of meat along the outside that is well done and a narrower center area that is medium rare/rare or however you like it cooked. Flipping often means a thinner band of well done meat and a much larger center area that is just right. As long as the outside is getting the nice browning and char that you want, flip flip flip away.

I don't use ketchup or A1 just light seasoning and cook medium rare and eat...

Salt n pepper is OK I just got tired of that combo, another alternative is this (but is basically the same stuff I used above):

Get cast iron pan and stick it in the over and heat to 500. Take out your steak and let it get to room temp; then baste it with olive oil and grind sea salt and pepper. Put stove on high, when oven reaches 500 take pan out and put in on the stove. Put steak on one side for 30 seconds, flip and another 30 seconds. Flip it again and put it back in the oven for 3 minutes. Flip and cook for another 3 minutes. Take out and enjoy a perfect steak.

Meh I wouldn't go that far... A grilled steaks is still way better than a broiled steak. Same concept I know, but a grill does provide it's own "grill" flavor

I'm saying, if you have a choice, charcoal is the 1st choice.

Without a doubt... and if done properly, you can have a charcoal grill heated properly within 15 min, which is not a lot of time at all

Agreed. If possible, lump hardwood charcoal is king, it sh!ts on propane. If you like a REAL steak (charred and mid-rare/rare) you need heat. If you like a REAL steak (a ribeye that's 1" thick) and like it mid rare, you need massive heat to melt the fat quickly before the meat cooks. Propane is incapable of doing this, it doesn't get hot enough. I understand the convenience of propane, so no defense necessary, but comparing charcoal to propane is insanity.
