Scout your parks and golf courses for pecan and fruit trees. Every time the wind blows get out and pick up the limbs. Peel the bark and let cure. Snap and use in SJ for added smoke if desired. The snapped small limbs work great. Pecan shells work well also.

Do you have a weber chimney? If not ya gotta get one. She'll be by your side as you go bigger and bigger in your charcoal adventure.


Looks like you're on a very fast track to grilling happiness!

Checking out doitbest now. And yes I got a chimney, I would never think of using lighter fluid again after using the chimney! I plan on doing the little mod to the bottom vent handle once I get an appropriate drill bit to drill into the metal.

One question I'm not as clear on though - you've said I could use chips in a foil pouch with holes poked around it, but when using this method are you still required to soak the chips in water like you would have a wood chunk for the charcoal? Probably a stupid question.

There's no need to put the wood chips in water. Just poke holes all in the foil and throw it on top of the coals. They will work if you put them directly on the coals ( no foil). There's no 1 right way.

All of it looks good to me. Have you tried a brine for your chicken? Seems to work wonders for me.

Haven't done a brine yet, but I looked into them. And I just looked up caveman steaks, and that is definitely something I will be trying in the near future.
