    I prefer to cook on a charcoal grill. I have a Weber Smokey Joe. One of the big ones with 3 stages instead of 2. I bought it at BJ's for $40. I have had it for 10 years. I have a cheapo sears basket I cut the handle off and rigged a new closing hatch on. I use that for smoking fish and cooking corn. The aluminum tray that used to hold the charcoal shit the bed and I replaced it with a cast iron pan I cut the handle off of. Works like a champ. I have another Iron pan as a liquid catcher/holder on the first stage. I put wood chips in it also. I need a new one as wherever a bolt or fastener is attached its rotting out and the air leaks makes it hard for me to maintain temps in the cold. It is to fragile to take to the park also. Steak tips on the charcoal grill with veggies and taters tonight. I can't wait for summer. I miss corn and mators. What do you use as a grill?

    I have a gas grill and a traeger. Started off smoking with a $20 brinkman charcoal smoker and it was too much babysitting to keep a temp at all, but I am hooked on smoking from that thing!
    However, I really enjoyed cooking with charcoal and miss it after switching to the traeger, so considering getting a little charcoal grill to replace our gas version.
    I love modifying stuff for outdoor cooking and your cast Iron coal pan sounds sweet! I just did my first test cook tonight with a little hopper extension I fabbed up to solve my only complaint on this thing. Gonna weld it out and paint after tweaking a couple things.

    I bought a chimney. I can make a fire pretty quickly with lumps. Try some charcoal grilled asparagus sometime. Nothing compares to charcoal grilled veggies.
