I'm not sure I follow you, Grillster.

With a propane grill with multiple burners you are cooking with indirect heat if you have the meat over unlit burners. Add a smoke pouch to the burner, and you are smoking the same way.

In the cobb you might have a convection effect, but the direct heat is still right below what you are smoking. Isn't that more or less grilling?

Technically yes, but with the roasting rack in place the meat is suspended above the cooking surface. The reality of it is, If I have 20 people coming and I am making several racks of ribs, or a brisket etc, I will fire up my Brinkman, and a bag of charcoal. If it's me and the old lady - it's the Cobb and 8 briquettes.

Now don't get me wrong, I'm not charcoal stingy. I have a corner of my garage devoted to lump, briquettes, fire starters and smoking woods. But since I got this thing a month ago, I'm happy as a pig in you know what. I just ordered another one today and had it sent to my brother.

WestMarine online has them on discontinued. The stainless steel model for $68.99.
I forget..is this the site where ya can't name prices?

I ordered one today..but got no email confrimation yet. They may be sold out with me
outta luck.

I plan on using plenty of smoke chips for whatever I grill. I take it it's not a bad idea to
put a large nail or small bolt where the lid fits down to give some air intake?

I decided I'm going to get a small flat panel for the kitchen instead.
It will get more use

We got a bigger tv for the living room to replace the 40" flat panel. My wife said she wanted to mount the year old tv in the kitchen and I said what the!!
I thought the idea of placing a large panel tv in the kitchen was overbearing and out of the norm. But now since we've had it there for the last couple of months I'm kind of liking it.

I've been looking at the 19-22 in range. Something to hang on the wall for when I'm prepping or checking on dinner.
My name is pacanis and I'm a TV junkie

Well those TV's sound great but I'm still stuck on my new Cobb. It may be awhile before I buy a new set.

The local supermarket has whole chickens on sale for 69 cents a pound. I'm off on Thursdays. So Wednesday night on the way home I am going to grab one and inject it with Cajun butter marinade and then cook it on the Cobb the next day. Either that or I have some home made Cornell sauce in the fridge. I going to try the green beans recipe from the Fleederman site in the moat.

I'll let you know how it comes out.

Pics would be nice, too

I haven't ruled a Cobb grill out. The TV got ordered an hour ago, so maybe I'll buy one of those grills for myself in the fall.
