Barbecue (bbq) or as we say here in Switzerland “grill” is great! I love it. And if it is slow and low bbq I adore it. Not just to eat it if not preparing it, marinading, drinking a cool beer besides the grill and everything. What is not too like! And if you visit my Facebook page you should have come across some pictures where you can see my Farmer Grill smoker in the back ground. So you know I like it.
And the smoker is really, really awesome. It lets you make things that people rave about for weeks. But I must admit that sometimes even for me the preparation is a bit lengthy and it needs a little more attention when you really do hours and hours of low and slow since the carbon has to be refilled every four to five hours or so. So for a while now I was planning to start cheating and get a little gas grill.
It had to be Outdoorchef, so much I knew. But I really wanted it to be small as I did not want to invest into another bigger grill (even tough a Monolith would make my grilling life perfect!). Now when you look at the smaller models they all have only one burner system. That basically does not allow the get the heat down to 120 to 150 degrees Celsius. So a good friend and barbecue expert told me about a little thingy (gas pressure regulator) that reduces the gas outlet right from the gas bottle. I went out to hit some of the DIY shops that sell grills and barbecue accessories too and easy enough in the first shop I was able to pick up a pressure regulator from Campingaz (link does not show actual product I got).
The same day I ordered the City 420 G and the weekend after I chucked a big piece of pork neck onto the grill and 16 hours later we had some excellent pulled pork, home made potato salad and a cool beer. Of course I threw on one or two sausages right before dinner as well, just to round the meal off. Man, I am happy I got this little Outdoorchef. Not only for carefree low and slow if not it really comes in handy for the quick grill on working days evenings. 🙂
