Making Chili On The @WeberGrills Ivory Mastertouch

Inspiration for the cook from Malcom Reed’s channel How To BBQ Right Link to his video


Seasoned with chili rub and coarse black pepper


3 lb chuck roast smoked offset the coals using lump and the Slow N Sear. Roughly 275-300F pit temp.


I took it off at 189F only because we were off doing the New Years Day plunge.  180F would have been a little better but it still came out great.


Charred some Bell Pepper and Onion


Diced them up


Next into the pot the veggies with 24 oz can of diced tomato, a small can of tomato paste, a small can of chopped green chillis, and four ancho chillis in adobo sauce, some minced, garlic.


Also browned up five spicy sausages (out of the casings),  cubed the beef and tossed it all in the pot and gave a good stir.


Smoked for another 3.5 hours at 300F pit temp.


Topped with shredded Mexican cheddar and a dollop of sour cream.


Everyone loved it.


A Question For Fans Of The Weber Charcoal Go-Anywhere In Regards To The Grate Modification

I have a question for those of you that have modified the cooking grate to cut it in half so you can remove a portion of it to add coals without removing the food. Also they cut it so it can be packed flat in the bottom of the grill so they can transport a mini- chimney and other cooking tools.  Where do you cut it?

In videos I’ve watched, most people cut it right down the center.   I was thinking about cutting it 1/3- 2/3 and using the 2/3 section for the cooking area and 1/3 area for the section over where I’d add the coals.

Here’s a video demo by Mike Reyher describing how he modified and packs his Weber Charcoal Go-Anywhere-

I purchased this stainless replacement grate to do the mod with.  It gets reviewed as being a nice heavy true stainless grate (as opposed to a chrome plated steel one) but many customers said it was a touch too long to fit.  My guess is that’s why it’s such a cheap price, but seeing as I plan to cut mine to modify it anyway that’s not an issue.
