I'm at the Ace Hardware to pick up a grate for my mini Smokey Joe. I was telling the checkout girl that I did not need to wash it as it only holds charcoal. She had trouble understand that.

So the guy behind me pipes up that he is the King of BBQ! No one on the face of the planet knows more than he does. Oh really now?

He wants to know what kind of wood I use and what I soak it in. I say Soak it? Yeah, and what do I marinate my wood in?

He goes on to tell me that you have to let the wood age and then soak it in water with old spoiled onions, peppers, peppercorns, etc. Let that sit for a few days in the fridge. Then FREEZE it. It slows down the burn and add such flavor you couldn't believe. :clap2::clap2::clap2:

He is 100 % right. I don't believe it.

As usual for a know it all, he would not listen to any advice cause that was the wrong way to do it!

He told me where he lives but I do not think I will be stopping by.

Good luck Mr. King

One other tip. To brine your turkey, leave it in the bag with just a hole where the legs are so you can fill the cavity with goodies. Put it in water in the fridge and let it soak up all that goodness. :crazy::crazy::crazy:

Little does the King know, he'll be the King of Amusement for the next little while. :loco:

Bless his heart. :heh:

I'm glad the guy has enough passion about what he's doing to make the claim of KING :) I might have taken a similar position at some point in the past.... :)

He's absolutely correct. It is absolutely essential to marinade your wood if you want to impart it with flavor ... dang it, I better just go to the penalty box and call it a day. :oops:

Hunt the impostor down. I am the true king. I never marinate my wood. I marinate my charcoal. All charcoal should be marinated it in lighter fluid.

I think maybe the King is rubbing his wood a little bit too...

Chop the leg off of an Ent (the Tree people form Lord of the Rings). Take the leg, and cure it within a flame that does not burn. Splash it with the blood of an unnameable beast, and carve your birth date into it. You are now ready to cook.

I hope you wrote down this guy's wisdom. I am thinking Myron's book has some competition!

Actually, Saruman betrayed the Ents, and his greatest crime was cutting a tree. He ended up trapped in Orthanc after Treebeard and the other Ents revolted.

Maybe better, was the actions of Merry & Pippin: relaxing and smoking Longbottom Leaf?

Amazing what one can retain when they actually read something.

Chef Jim a quick question here.
Did you offer Mr. King the website address for this forum?

That way maybe everyone wouldn't be taking potshots at him.
Sounds like he just needs to expand his education a bit, this is an awesome place to start

O at the mall by me there is this old guy that walks around with a trench coat and head gear with big long antennas coming off it. Very very strange.

Oh, so I should be marinating wood and NOT eggs?:doh: Dang it! I did it all wrong.

I have found that when I marinate my smoker it imparts a wonderful flavor to meat. But, it only happens when I make sure that all the "K's" on the charcoal are facing upwards and my smoker is facing Memphis and the water I use to boil my ribs in has MSG in it along with a bottle of bourbon.

Well, did you try it?


If an old-timer came behind me in the checkout line and started flipping me chit about my bbq, I'd at least give it a try, once.

Well now I'm confused do I marinate the grill it's self or the charcoal?Maybe the wood in wine and egg yolks for ten years that way it actually penetrates it! My cooking will never be the same.:shock:

I find if I marinate myself before during and after cooking, my flavor is unbelievable.

Just when I thought I was starting to understand the smoking process, a curve ball! Now I need to let my onions spoil and marinate the wood? :crazy: This is turning into work!

Sounds like a guy I had a conversation with a while back. He told me that all wood burns the same so I shouldn't be worried about using apple. He told me any professional bbqer could tell me there is no difference in overall taste.

You marinate the grill/smoker, duh. There are some uninformed people who marinate charcoal but it does no good and the money you save from not having to buy another bottle of marinade can be used to buy lighter fluid.

If I really want to drive my neighbors nuts I throw a few onions in the fire. Maybe he's on to something.

Ya know his wood soak routine has a somewhat plausible sound to it and I may give it a try, did he say what kind of wood he used? Now his turkey brine is just plane wacky.
