Please tell me about this. I was in Home Depot the other day (another thread, I know ) and saw one of those which looked like a pellet grill/smoker for charcoal. It seems as though it would work really well. Anything to report as I think these are relatively new?

re: OT - Big Green Egg
I wash the wings off and pat them dry and send them to the fridge to dry for about a hour. Indirect @300, mayo for a binder, season (salt, pepper, Holy Voodoo), lay out flat and smoke. Flip after 45minutes or so, go another 45. Then the last 30 minutes or so I pile up and melt plats of butter all over and drizzle with hot sauce. Flip the pile a couple times doing this butter/sauce mix. Pull off and let rest for 10 minutes or so.

I've seen people now using seasoned flour or baking powder and swear by it for crispness.

My neighbor brines them in a apple juice brine with about a dozen sliced jalapenos for 24 hours and then dries them out and uses the baking powder method. I admit, they are pretty good.

re: OT - Big Green Egg
I have really enjoyed mine. It is my first really nice grill...never had a BGE or pellet smoker do I wouldn't know how it compares to those. I have the 560 model but they also have two larger options

Really simple to use though. Just load the hopper and get the coals going and then it has a fan and temp probe that regulates it. It gets up to 700+ in like 10 minutes from being completely cold.

It is relatively new and does have some issues they are trying to fix. I haven't had any issues with mine yet but a lot of the ppl in the Facebook group get their lid switches melted and have to bypass them. The app that is supposed to control the temp sucks apparently, I've never used it.

I've cooked on it probably 20 times since I got it. And for me I would buy it again in a heartbeat. Super easy to use and produces great grill flavor. I used some hickory chunks yesterday on a turkey breast...just stuck them in the hopper vertically and poured charcoal around them. Turned out great.

The only issue I have had with my pellet grill is that the auger underneath the hopper that feeds the pellets into the grill can get stopped up requiring you to take things apart to free the auger. LINK If the auger us unable to move freely then it will not feed pellets into the grill’s firebox. My advice would be to keep this part of the grill as dry as is possible so that the pellets and that portion of the grill remain dry. Of course if you can keep the whole unit stored in a dry place that is even better.

I do not know whether your charcoal grill would have a similar issue—most likely not because I doubt charcoal would get gooey like pellets.

These grills dont have any sort of auger. There is a grate that all the charcoal sits on and as the charcoal turns to ash they fall through the grate and the other briquettes move down. Some of the first grills had issues with unburnt briquettes falling through the grate prematurely but they made an updated grate that has seemed to have fixed that issue.

This dweeb explains it pretty well

That's good intel right there. The key sounds like the butter/sauce mopping. Will try sometime.

All i did was salt and pepper them and throw them on . And it produced blackened rubber wings.

Hell yeah. Like that one too.

They write some clever lyrics too. I hope they blow up soon, they deserve it.

Just don't be a knucklehead and use lighter fluid in it, and pray the guy who owned it before you didn't either.


I knew this but didn’t take into consideration the way the BGE is constructed.

My Step Dad gave me his large about 10 years ago. My mom bought it for a Christmas present in 1991 and they divorced a couple of years later. Had been cooked on maybe 10 times and stuck in the corner of the garage since.

I abandoned my charcoal grill and used it for everything over the next 7-8 months. One cold , damp night I was out of lump charcoal so I had the bright idea of using regular charcoal and fluid in my regular grill and shoveling it into the BGE once the fluid got hot. Got it up to 700 really quick and cooked some of the best steaks ever. The next morning I had spider Webb cracks everywhere.

I started reading and the consensus was that with the ceramic being porous, it would absorb water. Getting it to 700 so quickly caused the water to steam and cracked it. I rocked on another few years before they turned into breaks and I was out of commission.

We are going to get an XL soon for family events but it isn’t practical for the two of us as our regular grill. I looked into getting some refractory cement and repairing the old one still tucked away in the garage.

TL/DR; don’t get it too hot , too quickly when it’s cold and wet out.
