Not really that expensive when you consider what gas is going for with grills.
Plus you could probably put some wood chips in and get a smoke flavor.
Get some Jack Daniels whiskey and baste with that. Alcohol cooks out and gives it a great flavor.
Great for cooking turkey and chicken.
Yes, I'd evaluate it as convection/roasting/grilling. Later, I'm going to get the grill plate accessory for pan grilling, and the extender ring to increase the dome height and volume...then I could do a stand-up beer can chicken. Until then, it's horizontal chicken
You sure can put wood chips on top of your coals...I did that when I cooked the brisket and the leg of lamb roast. Soaked some hickory chips for several hours, and placed them in a "smoker pack", wrapped in foil with lots of holes punched through.
I may try that Jack Daniels basting one day. I do have a recipe for, "Bourbon Street Steak" that uses bourbon in the marinade for your steak. That is also really good.
