    Which Grill To Buy: PK 300 vs Weber Master Touch?

    Which Grill To Buy: PK 300 vs Weber Master Touch?

    Both the grills are viable performers you are looking at, but neither have the feature I find most important for a charcoal grill. Grills that have a crank, that allows you to adjust the coals, are infinitely more functional than grills where you adjust the grates. Steak example. Build your fire...

    Completely different experience from my summit. What you see is a 16 year old s-470...yes I replaced the manifold and burners and drip plates at 12 years but I seriously think this box will outlive me.

    Burrs and stroping; questioning if I’m doing it correctly

    I've found that a Tiganello cork may be what you are looking for.....

    You will be afforded great advice here. It will get as technical as you would ever want. I'll defer the sharpening advice to others, but will say as different as knives can be they all have a edge bevel. 10 degrees on your laser, or 40 on an axe, find the bevel for that knife and sharpen there.

    My old stomping grounds. I'd like to go tubing down the New River right now. My beer would be a damn bit better than those days and probably, no definitely, a bigger tube😁

    Me too! Just wonder if the parchment on top creates a steam effect inhibiting browning? My way? Parchment liner with wire rack.

    The cook and the ingredients are what make the the dish. Daniel Boulud will outcook you with a butter knife and a Family Dollar skillet. That said diversity is key to a good cook. Copper with tin linining, clad stainless, iron, enameled iron,and yes, non stick all have there place in a properly...
