BBQchef33 and Arlin MacRae know waaaaay more about stick burning than I do. I used to cook with a stickburner alot (with a bandera, which is how I got started on this message board), but I'm mainly going the lazy way out now. I still use the dera now and then though, I just hate cleaning the dang thing.
