    i'm glad we're no longer talking about banh mi's and instead talking about bang me's. it's an improvement.

    topaz/coolblue/anyone else -- penang is over in bethesda across from the mercedes benz dealership. if schap ever decides to go - the more the merrier. it's effing awesome food. plus we can catch up and talk about our favorite twmac memes.

    That is a Meteor Bull "kamado" styled ceramic grill, with a pebbled exterior similar to the Big Green Egg. Some of these less expensive grills have problems with cracking of the inner liner. This particular model has had at least one report of a problem with warping of the lid.

    It does look to be a pretty good bargain, especially since the side tables are included in the price. If it comes with a solid warranty, looks like a good deal!

    Dats, you wear Yonex shoes? Need a quick review on them if you do. Thnx. You should come to Elvisland with HW and Sup, maybe Schmad and friend. Good music, good food, good company.

    Quick Question: Do I need 100 lbs of charcoal for just a couple of T Bones only? And how easy is it to refill charcoal?

    xisbum -- back in my yonex phase which lasted close to a decade -- i wore a couple of yonex shoes. funnily they are code named SHT-105 for example. and for the most part they are the SHT. to me they felt solid and bulky and durable. very much like the adidas barricades in terms of durability and bulk. they ran a bit small so get a size larger. also they are unisex - one line for both men and women.

    I'm thinking 100lbs of charcoal could cook more T-bones than you could eat in a week.

    i don't think you've ever met the sapient007 have you JRstriker12? he's killed more t-bones than you've seen in your entire life. in some parts of the world he's a legend and in one village in china he's a father figure.

    had another burger at kraze burger. it's messy and delicious. better than BGR in my admittedly terrible culinary opinion.

    I've seen sappy's buffet skills. Let me rephrase.... "more t-bones than the average, non-sappy, person could eat in a week."

    great... in the quest to achieve a lower ground hugging slice, tmonk is sleeping with the devil.

    Can't wait till someone wants to get a better lob.

    It'll be so low bcz, it'll be pulled by hell's great gravitional pull.

    omg - if i could get a slice that doesn't bounce - that would be the ultimate shot. is it a question of RPM's or is there a way to somehow hit the ball so it loses ALL air pressure inside?

    One of the advantages of a ceramic grill is that you use very little charcoal. The liner absorbs a lot of the heat, and the grill is so well insulated that little heat is lost. My grill can be 800 degrees interior temp, and I can still rest my hand comfortably on the surface. DON'T try that with a steel Weber grill!

    The grill is also air tight. Interior cooking temp is regulated by the size of the air entry and exit holes. Reduced air flow means lest moisture is blowing out of the grill, is being retained in the food.

    After cooking, the air holes are all sealed, and the fire goes out almost immediately. The partially burned charcoal can be re-used for your next grilling adventure.

    How hard is it to add charcoal? Don't really know with the Costco grill, but on mine it is not that easy. The cooking grate is hinged at the front, but it's not large enough to easily allow the addition of hot coals. Luckily, a full loac of charcoal will last almost 24 hours, more with really high-grade coconut briquettes. That's more than enough to cook a pork shoulder or brisket. Probably enough for a whole pig, if it would fit inside.

    thx hitman!
    seems like I just need to add charcoal before I grill. I hate to waste charcoal. I only use lump and it burns out pretty quick. ~ 1 hr.
    just need a balcony . can't imagine putting the heavy thing on a deck.

    oh yeah forgot to ask, is a Webber genesis worth it given its 2x the cost of a regular grill? also have u heard of those restore Webber grill sites? they have one near where I live and cost is a little cheaper than an updated model. both my charcoal and gas is starting to rust. looking to replace by next fall. just wanted some choices. thx.

    Glad I could help facilitate the 'Dueling Deals with the Devil 2012'! Apparently the devil team hasn't been this formidable since... maybe it has never been this formidable:shock:

    i think we might get promoted to carrying people's bags if we fill the cups correctly...might need to practice filling them this week...

    schap -- good 8.5 season (if that was our last match) -- undefeated! i pretty much used that league as a way to demo frames and talk about equipment...

    I dont think anyone here knows much about philly tennis. Im really the closest person in our group to philly and Im still about 1 hour away. Most of these poeple are DC folks with a couple BMore folks splattered in.

    When you get settled in let me know I will swing up there and we can hit. Then I can go get a steak wit.
