I actually was buying a Big Green Egg when I got this one. They are obviously a fantastic unit but they're also well over a grand and I have the same level of temperature control as the BGE. Weber has the Summit to compete.Topper wrote: ↑Fri Oct 11, 2019 1:45 pmNice, q is always last minute decision so I'm still cooking with gas, put a pan with chips on the burner for smoke.
If I were to got to coals, I'd probably get a egg style. The thermal control from +800F to -200F is the appeal.
Try minced fresh garlic and evo on the prawns. Should be less than 2 minutes a side.
It takes a bit to get used to but i can hold around 225-250 using the snake method with the coals. For high heat I use hardwood lump and the Weber baskets that come with the bbq to blast it at 600-700 within 15 minutes.
I use newspaper and a charcoal chimney to start the briqs...they're roaring within 10-15 then pour them into the baskets and the kettles at max by 20 minutes. Not bad
