Glass Door Gas Smoker

Is a glass door on a smoker a gimmick? I was thinking that the smoke would stain the glass fairly quickly and then you wouldn't be able to see in. May be better to buy a sheeted door gas smoker? Would the sheeted door smokers keep more heat in vs the glass door?
Thanks

Re: Weber Genesis vs other brand hooded bbq

My summit was very cheap. I did have to drive 6 hours and return 6 hours to get it. Still very cheap about 10 % of new price. I know a new model would be better but I could never afford one. My Summit does anything I want. Just something for other people to think about. There may be value in buying ...

Re: Weber Genesis vs other brand hooded bbq

Ended up buying a second hand Summit 6 burner. Love it. Can do roast pork with crackling no worries. Beer can chicken is easy. I have done one roast chicken on foil . So if I can do one I could do 5 easy. Prefer the beer can chicken. I use the weber deluxe poultry roaster. Works relly well . My summ...

Lighting 4 Weber kettles

If you were using 4 Weber kettles. You know one for beef one for lamb one for pork and one for chicken. the vegs can be done in the oven inside. How would you go about lighting them? Char baskets in each kettle? At least that way they would be ready to go around the same time. I have 2 x heat beads ...

Re: BBQ gurus advice needed on new BBQ this week, please

Hi wilsonj
Davo's suggestion to get a seperate flat plate bbq is a very good one. I believe you can buy 2 burner fold up flat plate bbq's at bunnings for $200 new. Second hand should get one for $50 or less. You could use that for campinp too if you go. Best of both worlds then.

Re: Weber Genesis vs other brand hooded bbq

Hi Davo Was just re reading your post about the genesis and the foil and trivets. So would you just put foil over where the burners are ? Then racks (trivets) on top of that? So put burners on high for say 15 minutes then on low for rest of cooking Time? I have just cooked my first beer can chicken ...

Re: BBQ gurus advice needed on new BBQ this week, please

Hi wilsonj
I believe you would or should have got a flat plate with your genesis. So that should cover a lot of bases. Did you get a cookbook with your new bbq. ?
That would guide you on using the new bbq. I think you have made a wise choice. Bbq is what Weber do. Enjoy.

Re: Weber Jumbo Joe Kettle

Hi Davo
I have 2 x 18 inch kettles. Don't have a jumbo joe. One of my 18's has a hinged cooking grate. Would you be able to buy one from weber Australia and would that fit the jumbo joe.

6 Burner Hooded bbq

Who make a 6 burner hooded bbq that one can put 2 flat plates in? That should be close to the area of a 4 burner flat plate bbq. How hot does this bbq get with a 20 minute pre heat on the grill?
Thanks.

Re: Weber Jumbo Joe Kettle

Hi Davo
Yes I think a Jumbo Joe would be a really good portable bbq. I don't have one but have 2x the 18 inch weber kettles. Just for me and my wife I am finding the 18s work really well.

Weber Baby Q Rotisserie

Anyone use the Weber Baby Q Rotisserie to cook roast pork? How did the crackling turn out? What prep did you have to do to get crackling with the rotisserie? Thanks for info.
