Wow, those look great!!! Fantastic job. That is a product that a veteran griller would turn out. Here’s a big two thumbs up and resounding CONGRATS!

A most excellent job!!!

Sorry about the steak, but I’m sure they still tasted good. But you know, typically, the chicken breast are the harder thing to do! And you did a mighty fine job, plus you already have a working plan for your rig and steaks!! I’m impressed! Keep it up!

I already went and looked at grills today.

I found one for 100 bucks that has two racks, a chimney, and two wooden shelves.

I'ma pick it up next week.

Cheers
When my wife got mine last year she found a 3 burner + side burner all stainless model for $169. I haven't seen one since for such a good deal.

Keltin, thanks for the props my friend! I have a few years experience in the kitchen, but i have never lived in a house, hence, my bbq inexperience.

I learned more in this thread than i've ever known.

Great stuff. Thanks so much for all of your help.

Excellent! I'm very thrilled for you, and even though I wasn't planning on grilling tonight, just looking at your results is stirring my urge for the fire! I'm thrilled this worked out for you, and you seem to have a firm handle on it, so keep it up my friend!

Yeah man, I have a feeling it's going to become an obsession.

I can't wait to get some gourmet charcoal and a real BBQ pit.

BBQ is so cheap, fun, time consuming, and delicious, i'm just regretful i couldn't have gotten started early.

I was just never a homeowner till now. I'm only 26, so no big loss. Most of my friends can't even cook.

It can definitely become an obsession! But a good one!

I just showed DW your pics of the chicken breasts and she said “Those look like yours”, then she noticed the tortillas and decided we need to do that! So we’ll be getting some tortillas tomorrow and trying this out!

Oh, and if by gourmet charcoal you mean lump, be careful. That stuff is very flavorful and nice, but it burns HOT and fast. Personally, I wouldn’t use it except for steaks for a fast and hot fire. Controlling temp on that stuff is a bit harder than on briquettes, but the flavor is a bit stronger since it’s closer to pure wood.

Oh i've used lump charcoal, like where it just looks like chunks of black wood?

I was more thinking normal style charcoal friend, but a better brand, better materials, infused with something better, i don't know. I mean there has to be something better than the crap i'm using.
