When I was young we did all our grilling on a simple round metal grill on tubular legs, with no cover. Things have come a long way since those days. In fact, on another thread, BDL and I were talking about Bobby Flay, and the number of "barbecus" he uses on his BBQ Addiction show. Near as I can tell, he has at least 11: 1. A gas operated cooktop. 2. A monster gas grill 3. Two (at least) webbers. 4. A Char-Broiler type rectangular charcoal grill 5. A Grillworks parilla grill, with all the accessories. 6. A Santa-Maria type, with all the bells and whistles 7. One I can't idenify: It's blue and has three horizonal rods (spits?) arranged in a triangle. 8. A smoker 9. A China box 10: A Green Egg, the largest size they make 11: A tabletop hibachi All in all, about 15-20 grand worth of "grills." And it wouldn't surprise me to find that I've missed one or two along the way. Hardly the stuff of the typical backyard set-up. Got me to wondering, though: What type of grills, and how many, do you use at home? Me, I've got three set-ups: 1. A colonial-style in-ground fire pit, with all the associated ironware and faux hearth. This is used strictly with wood, primarily for proofing historic recipes we've adapted. 2. A Char-Grill "Professional" (ha!) grill/smoker, with offset side grill. This is used with charcoal and wood, for both direct and indirect grilling and for smoking. 4. A Char Broil gas grill: Five standard burners, a sear burner, and an outside cooking burner. This was purchased a year ago and has seen an unsuspectedly high amount of use, because for years I maintained that I saw no use for a gas grill. But I've come to change my mind on that. I also have a small, square, tabletop charcoal grill. We'd bought it with the idea of carrying it when traveling. But we've never used it, so that one doesn't really count. We do a lot of outdoor cooking, here. Fortunately, I can grill year round, just about, and do so. While I certainly don't grill as broadly as Flay does, we do many things beyond the typical backyard barbecuing. What about everyone else? How do you do Q?
