My Wife And I Were Sitting On The Deck
I Pointed To This Little Toy Grill We've Had
It's Just A Flat Green Pan, Has Three Tall Aluminum Legs
And A Flimsy Wire Grate
You Can Adjust Up & Down The Top Half Of The Legs
It's Starting To Get Some Holes In The Bottom
I Told Her 'This Is It's 30th Anniversary'

We Bought It For Our First Memorial Day Trip To Colorado Springs
So I Got Out Some Burgers And Sausages
Gave It It Anniversary Cook
We Reminisced About Our Trips
And Where That Grill Had Taken Us
And How Handy It Had Been On The Patio
Then It's Time To Take It Apart And Let It Go

So She Went To The Store
(I Haven't Seen The Same Grill For A Couple Of Years Now)
And Brought Home What Looks Like A Micro-Weber
Dial Vent On The Lid, Two Sliding Vents In The Sides
Has A Raised Grate For Charcoal Ventilation
Looks Fairly Good For $15 Bucks

I Want To See If I Can Get A Low & Slow Smoke Out Of It
So I Arranged My Briquettes Around The Bottom In A Ring
You Light One End, And It Burns Like A Fuse All Day
I Got Two Cornish Hens
Anything Bigger, Couldn't Be In-Direct Heat
I Got My Thermometer, My Birds, I'm Ready To Go
I'll Start Them Around 9 Tomorrow Morning
Maybe They'll Be Done For Lunch

We just purchased a new large Kingsford grill/smoker, and look forward to using it. We enjoy Cornish game hens, and may try them or steaks as our initial meal on the new cooker.

Good Luck !!
I'm Not Going To Stuff The Birds
As Small As They Are
The Smoke Should Penetrate Completely Through The Meat

I Have A Green Egg, A Weber Kettle
And Now This Table-Top Job
It's Going To Get Real Hot Around Here Soon
So I Don't Plan To Heat The House While The Air Is Running
We Also Have A Two-Burner Coleman Stove
And A Three-Legged Cast Iron Dutch Oven

Gee, It'll Be Like Boy Scouts Around Here !!

I Have An Acquaintance That Just Got One
I Forget The Brand
I'll Give Her A Chance To Get Used To It
Then I'll See How She Likes It

I Think Archie Said He Had One

I Don't Think My Patio Decor
Really Warrents One Of Those

I am too far from Texas to get some smoked meat and when I cook I have to feed a lot of people

I Live Smack-Dab In Kansas City
Even The Grocery Stores Have Smokers Running
Every Joint Seems To Sell It's Sauce In The Markets
You Really Can't Go Wrong With A Local Brand
They've All Won Awards

It's 6am
I'm Really Chompin' The Bit To Get These Birds Goin'
But It's Too Early

Meanwhile:
They're Brining And Coming Up To Room Temp
I Should Do Some Dishes
Maybe Sweep Up A Bit
I Should Be Good To Go About 9

So I Started The Fire About 8:30
The Temp Was Easy To Control At 221-230 Degrees
The Birds Finished At 180 Degrees At 1:20pm
Everything Has A Good Powder Coat
A Sheet Of Foil On The Bottom Cleans Out The Ash & Drippings
Cleaning The Grates Up Was No Worse Than The Dishes
The Grill Is Only 14 1/2", It'll Fit In Your Washer

I'll Recommend This Little Grill For Anybody

If You're Still Paying Attention
My Acquaintance Uses Her's At Least 6dys A Week
Says She Can't Live Without It
This One Replaces The Old One She Had
She Wore Out The Motor

I Was Looking At A Cut-Away View Of One
It Looks Like The Steak Grill Is Propane

They Tasted Just Like Smoked Birds
I Should Have Crisped The Skin
But This Was Just An Experiment

They Were In Almost Five Hours
This Small Grill Worked Just Like The Big Ones
It's Always Handy To Have A Small Grill
Good For Burgers And Kabobs

I Just Got A Half Brisket Out Of The Freezer
When It Thaws, I Guess That's Next
