Thread: Grill question

    Default Grill question

    Ok, so here's my situation. About a month ago, when I went to fire up my (propane) grill for the first time this season, it didn't fire up. When I started looking at the ignition system, I realized that all of the "guts" (burners, grates, etc) had rusted away (and I heard TAPS playing in my head as I saw this). When I checked into getting replacement parts, I realized that I can probably get a new grill cheaper than to get the replacement parts.

    So my question is this - is there any reason I couldn't finish "gutting" the thing and using it as a charcoal grill? As long as I still have the top grate to put the meat on, should I be ok to do so?

    You can... I did it before. I also bought new grill gear, flippers with long handels and some easy topers that close so you can flip everything at once.

    I much prefer a good, old-fashioned charcoal fire as opposed to propane. It makes the food taste better, IMHO.

    There are natural brands such as Noram de Mexico’s Sierra Madre 100 percent oak hardwood charcoal contains no coal, oil, limestone, starch, sawdust or petroleum products and, to boot, is certified by the Rainforest Alliance’s SmartWood program as sustainably harvested.

    It's the additives that make it carcinogenic. . .

    As you can guess, I'm for this kind of grilling, not the bottled kind . . .

    Gut it and use Hickory wood and Mesquite, I also use cherry and apple wood

    Actually some of the carcinogens are a product of burning fat too.
