I just got home from buying one of the last 3 remaining Cobb Premier Grills
from the Oceanside store West Marine here in San Diego. $68.99! Carrying bag included. None left in SD county. I can't wait to try it.
West Marine online is unfortunetely sold out of them now. I'm ordering the roasting rack online.

About TV in the kitchen? I have one of those little GE Spacemaker TV's that
mount under the counter. Running the cable to it whereever I live is always
a challenge tho.

Here's my Cobb set up.




I injected the chicken with Cajun garlic and herb marinade. Potatoes in the moat. 90 minutes later - we feasted!

One thing about the Cobb grill, if you add smoke wood chips, you need to
keep them to a minimum. This grill is so effecient, if you use too many wood
chips, your meat will taste like you poured liquid smoke over the meat.

Also, I used smoke chips and peeled my potatoes and put them in the moat.
I added a little water to the moat and the potatoes were covered in foil.
They came out grey.

Again, I suggest ppl go easy using smoke wood chips with the Cobb Grill.
And don't soak them in water. Let them smoke and be done with flavoring.
Otherwise...if wet...they will slowly infuse too much smoke flavor into meats.

A tiny amount of wood smoke chips goes a long way with this grill.

Thanks for the info. I learned my lesson early on as well. You only need a little wood or you will turn out a ham regardless of what you are cooking. Thanks for reminding me.

Coob grill

I purchased one at a high quality BBQ outlet in Hon Kong.

I own quite a number of BBQ grills, including the Weber Smokey Joe.

What made me interested in this particluar product is how close it is to the table grills used by the Koreans to grill Kalbi and Bulgogi at the resterant table.

So, I purchased it and took it to my coworker's Saturday BBQ meeting. Everyone looked at it and commented how compact it is and how the construction is really great.

Then we lit up the big grill we normally use, a Smokey Joe for the franks, and finally the Cobb.

We did not use the 8 coals, but instead opt for the 'Cobble Stone'.

I cooked 4 rib eyes in 12 minutes that were equal to the best out of any restarant.

I was quite suprised to see how quick and well it performed. Especially, since I have been grilling (BBQ) for around forty years.

Everyone of my coworkers were equally suprised; however, not as much as I was when on Monday - I found out that five of my co-workers when and purchased a Cobb for thier own use.

Until you try one, you can not know how great these actually are and how easy they are to use.

PS: The bottom is cool to the touch, so no worried about burning tables, grass, truck tailgates...

AND I do not work for them either!
