    Steaks aren't shabby either.

    Two questions:

    1) What type of charcoal did you use? I always use lump...the brand can vary...typically Royal Oak.

    2) Did you use any wood chunks for smoke? I love tossing on some chunks of hickory, cherry, or apple wood.

    1) Lump. Royal Oak. Apparently you should never use briquettes for a kamado grill.

    2) Yeah there were some wood chips in there at the beginning. I think it was hickory.

    Briquettes aren't recommended ever, as far as I'm concerned. I find they give food a chemical taste due to their manufacturing process. Some briquettes are marketed as "all natural" or whatever, but I've never gone wrong with lump.

    Wood chips and wood chunks are different. Chips aren't that great for a charcoal grill, as they can be burned up pretty fast. It's a little tougher to find wood "chunks" (bigger pieces of wood, no soaking required), but it's worth it. Sometimes Home Depot or Lowes will stock them. Chunks give off smoke over a much longer period of time. I do use chips often though, if I'm doing burgers or something else that requires a very short cook-time.

    Anyway, congrats on your ribs! Nothing shows off the power of charcoal grills like doing up some yummy ribs. Try chicken wings sometimeI cook mine for a while with some wood chunks for smoke, and then sauce em up towards the end of the cook. They turn out great, and are really, really easy.

    haha I can't take the credit, my dad's the cook Wink. I'd get one myself whenever I move out.

    and yeah actually the wood was decently big so they were probably chunks

    Well, then you have good grill-master to learn from. My dad only ever used gas BBQs, and he only really knew how to turn stuff black.

    Seriously, soak up all the cooking tips and techniques you can before you move out. I had to self-teach myself a lot of what I know about cooking. Creating meals is one of life's greatest pleasures as far as I'm concerned. Being able to make a wide range of meals will up your free agent value in the ladies' eyes too.

    Damn, too bad. I had quality barbecue my whole childhood/life.We currently have a large natural gas grill and now this charcoal grill. Aside from ribs, one of the best meals is rotisserie chicken in the gas grill.

    Man, I can't believe the nerve of people who ask for your possessions when putting i nan offer for your house. Maybe it's just me. I can live with appliances, but when they ask for your TV, your lawnmower, your speakers, etc. it's so dumb.

    I know but the house has been on the market for about 2 years. To make it worse, it was a low ball. I was thinking of you though and the fact that you had said they are often discounted in the us (which they never do here). In the end, we got a fair'ish price and I didn't have to leave my underwear behind
