#Porkribs 7/22/16 on the @WeberGrills Kettle with assistance from the Performer

Results

Obviously I love BBQ cooking.  I love the versatility and ease of using two kettles but if I were only going to own one it would have to be a Performer.  That cart just makes everything so simple and convenient.  Being able to rest your tray of prepped food of hold your remote thermometer sensor makes things so simple.  When you factor in the gas assist for starting your coals, to me, it’s a no-brainer to go with a Performer.

When you consider the fact that unlike gas grills , a Weber Kettle can easily last you over 20 years with the bare minimum of care and you divide out the cost of ownership over all those years, I’d recommend you buy a Performer every time.  It’s only a couple hundred more and when you think that you probably only get 5 years on average out of a gas grill, the Weber Performer Charcoal grill with gas-assist will outlast a gasser by 4 times as long.

Anyway here was my set-up for some pork ribs that went on at 7:41 AM to be ready for lunch!

Snake method charcoal set-up with apple chunks and cherry chips. Ribs slathered with frenches yellow mustard and then rubbed with the Paul Prudhomme rub.  Wait til pit temps hit 225 and then toss the ribs on offset the coals.  Then let er rip.  The top vent wide open bottom vent wide open.  Because we are using the snake method, only a portion of the coals are hot at a time as it works it’s way around the bowl.
