Jake Loves to Barbecue With Charcoal Not Propane

Gas grills were created for people that don’t have patience or skill.

I will stand behind this statement with my bag of Kingsford, and bag of apple and hickory chips. When you want to eat right and really taste the meat the way it was intended then cook it on a charcoal grill. A Weber dome grill is still the best in the business. Don’t be impatient people. If you get Match Light Kingsford you will be ready to cook in about 15 minutes.

Don’t let the burgers or hot dogs and chicken, steaks or pork chops just sit there on the grill. You have to move them, turn that meat over about every minute to cook evenly. Do you like barbecue sauce? I do, and I make my own. I start with a bottle of Dinosaur Hot and Spicy sauce, add fresh peppercorn and a touch of garlic powder with about 1/4 cup of Lea & Perrins Worchesteshire Sauce. Make sure you brush it on and re apply every 2 times you flip the meat.

Don’t cheat with gas, go “old school” and break out the charcoal.  You will be amazed how much better the food will taste. One last tip, if you want to cook pork ribs, par boil them for 15 minutes before you put the on the grill. Make sure you let the coals burn down for about a half hour, then throw a few handfuls of apple and hickory wood chips on the coals, brush the sauce on and flip and brush more sauce on every 2 minutes for about 20 minutes and enjoy a real smoked barbecue rib. your friends will think you’re a Weber rock star!
