Hi !

Hi there,

Not too sure what is usually posted in introductions but i'll tell you a bit about myself, i'm a young lady from Canada. I can't bake - baking in the past has caused multiple oven fires and if not, they taste totally off.

I like cooking and grilling, but grilling has to be my favorite. I'm also currently trying to make home-made treats for my little dog and eventually open a little business with it.

If you'd like to know more, feel free to ask :)

P.S, the design of this forum is what got me to join, it's just so CUTE. Not that I didn't like what I saw when I lurked, but it definitely isn't boring, I love it.

Hi Bella!
I'm new too, not sure myself but welcome from me.
I'm a young mom from South Africa and a bit of a foodie.
Hope you enjoy the forum, I'm just starting to get the hang of it myself.
Have a great weekend
Odette

Welcome to DC, Bella. There's lots of talk going on about grilling lately, so you should fit right in.

Do you use chips at all with your propane grill?
A foil pouch of wood chips with a few small slits poked in it, set on a burner, adds a little something nice to the food you're grilling. And makes the whole area smell great! I usually only do that for ribs, chicken or longer cooks.

And welcome!

Thank you! and yes I do :D I do the 1/2 wet, 1/2 dry (well, we eyeball it) :)

We've tried hickory and it was.. okay. Maybe it was the brand, or the bag was stored in the store too long.

Bucky, what if one did have a searing burner in their grill? Could chips be used somehow?
