"We don't just paint on the grease; we ladle it on"
Here's my set up for rotisserie bacon wrapped meat loaf. Line the basket with bacon, fill in your favorite meatloaf recipe, close the basket and tie shut. Rotisserie for about 1 1/2 hours. I wanted the bacon browned everywhere and this is how to do it....I keep one grill set up for rotisserie and one set for grilling. Remove the rotisserie and it does a fine job with paella in a roasting pan. Bases covered....The meatloaf was gone before I could get a pic......maybe next time.....

using the words 'gas grill' and 'BBQ' in the same breath will earn you an asswhuppin in most places where BBQ is actually appreciated....


but bacon-wrapped anything does have some merit, so you earned back a little bit of credibility. But you're still on thin ice.

All you gas haters out there need to quit being so closed minded. Yes, I smoke with straight wood (no charcoal). I also know that you can get an awesome propane cooker/smoker that uses propane to regulate temperature and a little wet wood just to make smoke. Both make for a big win at the end.

there's no hate here. Sure, someone can 'smoke' on gas if they choose. One could also convert a brick pizza oven to burn gas. But why? A luddite such as myself would have a hard time understanding that. Does that make me a hater? Well, you can call me what you wish.

ATMO, BBQ ain't about convenience. It's all about the end product. I believe that the extra time and effort I put into my inconvenient cooking method yields a better end product. The smoke produced by "a little wet wood just to make smoke" doesn't cut it in my book. But if it's fine for someone else .... so be it.

Sometimes I want a quick dinner and grilling on gas serves that purpose. Then again, sometimes I want to play with fire and BBQ something that is worth the time and effort. It's all good.

//since I posted a BBQ pic the other day here's one from the gasser...Stuffed chicken breasts.

you know, it's entirely possible that I'd use a gasser (if I had one) for quickie grilling stuff like you're talking about. But for low-and-slow work, you're going to be really hard pressed to convince me that half a day over a wood fire can be beaten by any other method.

I guess I just like cooking outside better than inside.

No hate here. I converted my charcoal smoker to electric this past summer and have never looked back. While there may be a slight change in taste it isn't much, the temperature is nice and constant, I still get wood smoke from chunks I put in a tray on the burner. I have now used it multiple times and people can't believe the product came from electric. Low and slow with some smoke is really the key.:thumbsup:
