Welcome back.

Most likely Jalapenos.g

I'm glad to see him back too. He's a sweetheart and a great
contributor!

Not according to that bitch Jill. Her drama makes me sick.


Jill who?


Someone on RFC. This is why I hate it when someone, who thinks a bbq
question or answer should be cross-posted to both AFB and RFC....the crap
players from RFC start mixing in our pool and muddying up the water. Oh, it
might start out innocent enough in the beginning, but then it can quickly go
nuclear.

For those of us who do from time to time participate on RFC, let's remember
to wipe our feet before entering into AFB, and let's leave the detritus
THERE from entering HERE. Please? If someone on RFC posts the rare, genuine
question about bbq, how about we just tell him or her to do a duplicate post
here and to not cross-post?

For those of you who have never been to rec.food.cooking and would like to
venture into a sewer-swamp of floatsom where an occasional worthy thread or
post might be gleaned, there are a few things to know that will help you
survive: Guns are bad, conservatives are bad, Bush is insensate evil and the
antichrist and everything is his fault (not stating opinion, just giving you
the sounds of the jungle so you know what to expect whether you agree or
not), capitalism is bad, socialism is good, the military is bad, Canada is
GREAAAAAT, USians ---what rfc-posting canadians call Americans--- suck,
America was superfluous to WW2 since it was Russia (and Canada) and not the
US which made winning possible for the Europeans, Obama hasn't had any
failures since it is still Bush's fault, bbq and grilling and crockpot and
oven are the same thing, additives are bad and botulism is just fine as long
as there are no additives, etc, ad infinitum. You get the drift.

For those who think THIS great newsgroup is bad, do some comparison shopping
at RFC; report back on what you find.

Not sure what I'm missing here - so he'd just have a pile of wood and
burn it. Wood burns down to coals. No? Why a special rig to do it
then?

Thanks,

It's just a old school thing. Raw wood gives off a lot of smoke, but
it's hot buring coals do not. So what you do is have a fire and use
the hot coals created to fuel your cooking fire. Two different fires,
one feeding the other. Not making charcoal here.

The oldest methods to do bbq will take raw wood, and burn it down to coals
(you ever see the glowing red embers in a fireplace fire or in a campfire?).
Once you get a buncha coals in the fire, you grab 'em with a shovel and put
them in the pit. In some municipalities, they don't want people to build big
ol' campfires on the front lawn, due to the risk of spreading fire.
Something like a burn-pit to contain the fire and help control sparks is a
plus. At my place, I can dig a burn pit and not have the fire department
breathing down my neck.

This isn't for you Dave, as I assumed you are aware of this, just posted
for others to learn,
There is a simple 'pit' made out of a 55 gallon barrel, open top, rebar
run through about 2/3's down spaced about 3 inches apart, then cut out a
hole in the side, near the bottom, simply burn logs in barrel on rebar,
as it burns down the coals fall through and then you shovel out what you
need,

Yup, it's a good design. With my fire pit I have a grate on top of the pit
and the coals fall into the shallow hole, where I can scoop them out from
either end. Takes a bit of stooping, though. I may just go with the above
ground burn pit to keep the kinks out of my back :-)

I didn't click the link, but that's exactly what I'm talking about.

The rebarb is the magic. It lets coals of a predertimined size drop through
to the shoveling area.

With a WSM, I don't need tons of coals as I would with a block pit.
That's why I'm in search of a 30 gallon drum...

Used to be that was the size of car oil drums at garages, don't know if
it still holds true and you could purchase a metal trash can and use
that. I still see good hardware stores carrying 3 sizes.
