Use how much tenderizer per pound of beef, and how long ?


That all depends on personal taste. Follow the recommended use size on the package; if you find it is to tough use a little more next time. It will also depend on the cut of beef. A cube stake will be a lot tougher than a filet; best recommendation I have is take to your butcher about the cut you want to use. Cooking is one of those processes that is different for everyone.

Don't know how to use my propane, charcoal and fire box grill


Did it come with any sort of manual? That is probably the best way to start. If you haven't done it yet, hook up the propane tank to the hoses on the grill. I would say that the rack under the grill is for storing the propane tank and bags of charcoal or wood. Of course, the knobs are for turning the gas on and off. In between the left most knob and the one to it's right, there is an ignition switch type button, you press it when you have the gas turned on and with a lighter, you ignite the propane. Do NOT turn the gas all the way up before it is lit though, that is a sure way to burn some hair off or actually do some serious harm to yourself. In the charcoal section, you put maybe three inches of charcoal in the bottom of the cylinder. Use some paper or dry pine straw as extra fuel to get the charcoal started. Put a bit of lighter fluid on the charcoal then drop a match on it. I'm not too familiar with fire boxes, but from what I see, you need to use wood in the bottom of it. I can't see under the fire box, but you probably can dump the ashes out after you're finished with it. Start a fire with the wood and cook your food. If I may add a suggestion about cooking with wood, don't use nasty old rotten wood to do it. Cut some good smelling wood and let it sit for a while before you burn it. It will imbue the food with a good smell and taste. Other than that, it is up to you to learn to use your new grill. Good Luck.

I just bought the double doored Brinkmann Vertical, and was wondering if I need to spray down with oil and burn one time before cooking? Any help would be appreciated.


I would do that. It will undoubtedly smoke some the first time you use it, as the paint and oils on the pieces burn off. You want your food to taste like wood smoke, not paint smoke. I would leave the racks out and just wash them before you use them. Happy smokin'

Used a liquid fire starter in charcoal smoker. Ruined a brisket with results: brisket tastes like lighter fluid. How do I prevent this in the future?


use a chimney starter instead of lighter fluid. takes about the same time as lighter fluid to get it going.

Making food taste smokey


Hello. There is a product called liquid smoke, which I prefer. Just go easy with it unless you really like it smokey flavored. J.

My grill is turning chicken gray. We've let it run a long time, to do a burn off but no luck. Taste isn't an issue but the turkey looked gross. I am using the cast iron plates. We just replaced the igniter...


First of all make sure you are preheating your grill to at least 500". Also make sure your burners are clean and clean your grates every now and then. Last make sure your are putting veggie or olive oil on the meat before putting it on the grates.

Just bough weber Q200 grill. Is it normal that the flame burns so low and blue?Used to large flames off conventional grills. Thanks.e.


I have used the Q-series for 2 years. The blue and low flame is absolutely normal. Weber's philiosophy is of avoiding flare ups when grilling for best taste. I love this grill - very easy to clean, uses less gas and makes great food.

Cannot conect regulator to small 16.4 oz propane tank


It must have some sort of packing spacer you need to remove from the hose to attach the tank. LOL

Flame uneven


Most Charbroils use an inverted V over the burners. The hot juices and fats drip onto them to make a charcoal type taste. Unless the unit came with bricketts, they're not needed. My unit doesn't have them.
