Test driving the new/old toy

I used to have one of these Webers a LONG time ago and couldn't resist getting another one to play around with.

Today I'm trying it out making pulled beef.






More pics when finished. I got plenty of beer for the test

It looks good after 4 hours, but still has a ways to go to get tender!

Man what a relaxing day!!


It sure did seem like a long wait just to make me a sammich(and I damm near ran out of beer!) But it turned out OK for a bottom round that is prone to dry up. I was gonna sauce it anyway.

The gadget thing worked like it said it would. All you got to do is wake up every hour and check to see if it needs water and a few charcoals.

It didn't quite 'pull' like I wanted but I was starvin and pulled it about 7 degrees too soon. Darn good though!!

I believe pickles (as slaw) should be served on the sammie......not on the side
Nice job!
