Memorial Day Grill Upgrade
on: May 26, 2020, 05:49:28 PM

As the fates would have it, I had prepped a pork shoulder for the pellet smoker the day before Memorial Day and the $%*#er crapped out on me after about 10 minutes of preheating. DOA, no signs of life :pok: :rant: . So what do you do when life gives you a dead grill on one of the biggest grilling days of the year? You build a bigger #$%@ing grill, I guess! Cuisinart Twin Oaks Pellet/Gas combo. Assembled entirely by my trusty Charge TTI! Grilled some steaks, burgers and veggies on the gas side for the holiday and pulled a smoked pork shoulder off the pellet side 14 hours later. :woohoo:

I've never used a pellet grill but that thing looks impressive.  How did it all turn out?

Turned out great! We got a pellet grill as a wedding gift from my parents about 7 years ago and I've loved using it. Smoked a lot of pork shoulders, ribs, Thanksgiving turkeys, chicken wings, brats, etc. You can do steaks and burgers, too, you just don't get the touch of flame like you would with gas. Funnily enough, a few days before our original pellet grill died, my wife talked about wishing we had a gas grill for exactly that reason. Come to think of it, maybe she was behind the grills demise...(little did she know, I'd use the opportunity to upgrade to a more elaborate model  :rofl: )


Liking this Cuisinart Twin Oaks so far. Lot's of higher-end finishes compared to my old grill - Bluetooth and dual probes for temperature monitoring, easy ash removal for the pellet waste, integrated lights under both grill lids, a nice heavy duty cast iron griddle included. Hopefully it holds up! :tu:

Holy crap,  :drool:  I’m still getting used to the simple large round Weber charcoal one, I grew up using a gas one but one day at a party I had two of the same burgers one on a gas and one on a charcoal, and that coal one had so much more flavor, so I wanted to switch, ended up having to sell my $600 gas setup because of moving and bought the grill, coal, some hickory blocks, the chimney, all to give it a try, needless to say I still suck on it.. :-\
