I am looking to replace my grill. My old grill died, it was a cheap sub 100 USD no name gas. Long story short I am wanting to do some smoked ribs along with either a brisket or pork shoulder in mid november.
I am not wanting to invest a huge amount of money so I am considering purchasing a Weber 22 or 26 inch charcoal grill. I have been told that the 'best' accessory for the weber is the 'slow n sear'. I wanted to see if anyone else uses this product and if you would recommend that I purchase it.
My plan WAS to purchase the weber and simply pile the coals up on one side and place the meat on the other (2 zone) while using a pan of water above the coals to reduce and control the heat . Ive heard that the slow n sear allows for much better temp control however.
People have told me that the weber summit charcoal is pretty awesome ... but its close to 2k. Evidently this is Weber's product to compete with the Green egg.
Any thoughts or comments?
