<p /> All the posts have me wondering about temp for this brisket on grill extender with liquid in the drip pan(Amber something or other).My thoughts have been that in the few months but many cooks it seems dome temps have worked well for me.Will it be better for the cook to use grill temps?Has dome temps been the norm all these years?

    Jim R,[p]If it works for you, that's great, don't change!! Always remember...Qing is an art and therefore there is no "right way" of doing anything.[p]Now, if you were having problems, then I would question the accuracy of dome temp readings. There are many variables each time you cook and those variables will affect the temps inside the cooker......therefore, the differences in the dome temp and the actual grill temp may vary every cook.[p]I will make one the beer for drinking. Several of us at the Virtual Weber board have done extensive testing on various liquids in the drip imparts no detectable flavor whatsoever. So, save your money and buy more meat! [p]bbqflames.gif

    I agree 100%, I have used everything from whiskey (cheap kind) to apple cider and many in between and have not noticed a difference.
    Maybe it was because I used the 1-2 method...1 sip for the pan, 2 sips for Marv until the bottle was gone. I don't know, just a thought.[p]Marv [p]

    Jim R,[p]We agreed a long time ago that referencing dome temperature for the cook/recipe would be a good way to provide a common denominator and it has worked well. Differing indirect setups, weather, cooking temperature, and even the vent settings do affect the temperature at the grill level (along with where the grill level is - the extender).[p]Stick with what you know to work and expand on it by monitoring grill level temperatures.[p]Nice pic![p]Spin

    Can't figure the illusion,the brisket isn't that heavy.Did try something different on the rub,added dried Shallots instead of Onion Powder and the finger lick was good.

  • Jim R,
    Where do I get one of those grill extenders?

    Bill M,
    My local dealer doesn't carry much in the way of BGE parts so my order was placed directly to BGE in Atlanta.Found those folks good to deal with and have ordered a few things with quick response.
