 Patience

Hey folks, the time has come to hang up my hat.  Lil’Iron and I have spent the better part of two years putting this site together.  It will still exist but in a different form.

I always wanted to share my favorite recipes and make it possible for anybody to get a professional result using their backyard smoker. 

The fear of being redundant has come. 

I can only show so many ways to do chickens, ribs and pork shoulders.  The videos on this site give you all the basics and a few tips.  I do hope you will use them if you need to and pass them on to friends and family.

I have had a great time and met many good people.  I will still answer all my emails and maybe from time to time put up something new I found.

Thank you all for your input and your friendship. 

God Bless you,

BigIron

Well folks this weekend we did it.

Here at the BigIron we are at awe that the site passed 100,000 hits today.  I am so proud because who would have ever thought the site would have generated this much interest from a regular guy with a Char-Griller.

In celebration and in honor of Labor day I decided to buy a big ol’ honking piece of meat….A whole Arm Roast.

This was about 26-28 pounds…..to be honest I was in shock from the price and I tore the label off before I could check it.  The butcher told me but I forgot the exact weight……but hey, this was a special occasion so price be damned.

Lil’ Iron told me once, she never saw a Brink’s truck following a hearse to the cemetery…..so with that in mind, I bought it.


I thought it would be fun to give everyone a way to see this marvelous feast.  Click on the pictures below to see the full size….then prepare to be hungry!

Here is a shot of one slice of this Arm Roast. It is served on the largest restaurant platters we own.

I hope you enjoyed this as much as I did.  Lil’ Iron and I sure do thank all of you for your support.

Have a great Labor Day,

BigIron

Wow!  My buddy Dave wrote and said I was about to hit 100,000 hits.  I just can’t believe the people that have found this site useful.

I am humbled and honored that you folks have found this site to be useful and your results have been just like mine, GREAT!  I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

In honor of this milestone I decided to do something really special.  I am shooting a video for a 25-28 pound beef arm roast.  It’s kinda like beef clod PLUS!

This will be the biggest thing I have ever done and the chargriller is bending from the weight. 

Stay tuned…………………….

UPDATE: 6/12/2009

I was contacted by Char-Griller about this video.  They were genuinely concerned about the quality of their covers.  I was offered one of the new and improved ones.  They are much heavier and made of a different material that looks like it won’t melt anymore.

I take my hat off to the Char Griller Company for being willing to listen to the customer and make changes accordingly.


We all know the quality of the Char-Griller.  Owners are also aware of the cheap quality of the grill covers too.

I was sick of buying one every year and this time it faded, tore, and melted.

This video shows one way to solve the problem.  I hope it helps.

Let me say first off,

I DID NOT GET PAID FOR THIS REVIEW. 

Let’s face it, if you introduce money into the equation the truth usually gets a little clouded.

The folk’s over at Rod’s Rub wanted my opinion.

Well, you know me…….I had to give it the BigIron review!

Here’s my take on it. 
I did up some chicken breast and thighs. 
For something a little different I decided to give it a try on some grilled fruit. 

Enjoy!
