    I have the same grill, I like it because the firebox is big enough for a small pile of wood chunks off to one side. Good for roasting whole chickens but tends to run a little hot for smoking. Over all, a really good , versatile grill.

    Thanks, YardDart! Feel free to leave comments, too. I don't claim to know it all when it comes to bbqing, so you don't have to agree with me in the comment section! LOL

    BBQ rainbow trout on cedar planks (soaked for hours- you can add cheap whiskey or tequila for added flavor) with the following for prep- garlic power, onion salt, cumin, oregano, kosher salt, pepper and chili powder mixed together as a rub..... Place them belly down to the cedar so the interior meat is smoked properly. 15-20 minutes over direct heat until golden brown...
    Essentially you have a cedar smoked trout with a tasty rub- good times.

    End result is some tasty trout!!!

    Prep time. Ready to go on the BBQ.

    ok this sounds good but very new to me here r my questions

    1 can this be done on a propane grill
    2 if not do u take the grating out of the grill and set the cedar boards direct on the coal???

    1- You can do this on a propane grill- but I prefer the charcoal as it gives that extra smokey taste.
    2- The planks go right on to the grill as that is really the only way to keep them stable and not dumping the food in the fire. Plus the planks would catch on fire, if directly on the coal's. We soak the planks for about 4 or 5 hours in a HD bucket, they will not burn on the grill...just char the bottom but that is okay.

    If you shop around you can find many types of planks beyond cedar, experiment to what your taste prefers.... [woot]

    For marinade I buy the Italian dressing packets that come with the glass mixing bottle that has the oil and vinegar portions right on it. I use extra virgin olive oil but only about 1/2 - 3/4 of the way to the line then I add balsamic vinegar, much more flavorful than plain ole vinegar. Also only about 3/4 of what it calls for. Give it a good shake and let sit in the fridge overnight. Great for grilled chicken!

    Youse guys are making me so hungry! You gotta stop!

    Looking good. Let me take a wild guess on the drink. I'm betting on a rum and coke!!!
