I wanted some cheddarwursts for dinner but, wanted them like 5 minutes ago so, I took a short cut.

Think these were the fastest cooked brats I've ever had but, it did the trick and saved my dinner sanity.

I say brilliant! Now you've got a diverse piece of equipment, it can be a starter or a grill.

You need a gasser. Great for stuff like that. In fact, I think I'll go get some of those at the store for supper tonight.

A lot of inventions are because of someone wanting to do something easier/faster....I wasnt gonna say because they were lazy, because I'd be talking about myself too :-D

I was gonna say BOTH, but this sound nicer.....:becky:

Sorry to highjack the thread a little, but it was perfect timing. I did a nice long cook in my WSM on July 4th and when I finished, it was just about supper time. We had patties in the fridge ready to throw on the gasser, but I couldn't help but think that I could use the lit fuel in the bottom of the WSM. As with the chimney starter, it worked. Meat = cooked.

My question is about the abuse I might be giving my WSM without knowing it. Is there any reason I shouldn't run it like this? I don't usually do it, but at the end of a cook, I figured why not. :confused:

I've used my WSM the same way before with remaining coals to grill up some things and never had a problem. I have also cleaned my grids this way like in the photos below...

They show the WSM being used like that on the TVWBB site, I think they called it a smokey joe on stroids. I figure the WSM is made the same as a kettle more or less so it should be alright.

the pics are close to the bottom of the page, it wouldn't let me copy and paste directly to the pics for some reason

killer idea. I stumbled across this idea one day when i was wanting a single steak.

Odd that you posted this because I just happened to be on this website and he talked about it(im sure he talked about it some time ago, i just read it for the first time today)

its a very good idea. Alton Brown did a steak episode last year and did the same exact thing. He even did a simulated broiler by placing the steak on the grate and placed the chimney over the steak.

haha! My buddy used to always tell me, always let a lazy person do a job. That way, it'll get done quickly because they'd rather spend their time sitting around. In this case, being lazy was brilliant. Nice work!
