That will work just fine with the Cobb too. I have a small bottle of Montreal plus olive oil in my Tear and I will give it a shot this Fall. :applause:

The Cobb sells for as low as $69.94 with shipping on Amazon.com. I like the looks of it and the features. I think I'll get one for camping and maybe even for use at home. It is a bit pricey, but it has most other grills that small beat for cooking ease.

There is another deal out there. Called the "Green Egg" Kinda goofy looking but it is a great lil smoker, uses real wood. The small one is about 9" across. Costs about $200 though :cry:

I love BBQ....I was going to get the big one, but decided to build one at the house. Called the "big Baby" made from 2 50 gallon drums and a Volgezang stove kit. It is in the background of my build pics.
Too big for the tear!

Reading the customer reviews on Amazon, it seems that half the people loved this grill and the other half felt ripped off.
Different strokes for different folks?
YMMV.

I'd bet that those who don't mind spending a little more for quality loved it. The reviews tells me that one or two bought the grill for the wrong reasons. One said he uses the regular grill for steaks and I would too. This grill is for slow cooking and all but one review said it was great for that. I'ts odd that one said they cooked a whole chicken in just over an hour, and another said it took 2 hrs to cook bacon and eggs. Something had to be wrong with the grill or the cooking technique. I'd still buy one.

This is a variation of the Japanese Kamodo Pot. I've had several. It's a heavy ceramic cooker that uses charcoal or wood. Once broken in (I barbecue pork fat to do that) it makes superlative roasts. They are efficient, but too large for camping. I've read that they are the inspiration for the Weber - which cannot touch the Kamodo pot for flavor. You can smoke in them as well. I've done smoked turkeys, salmon and jerky. The one I have now I bought (to replace one stolen) at Uwajimaya in Seattle.

My little cooker is called the "Neanderthal". :D I picked it up for free! The rocks were laying all about and I just stacked them until I got a little oven cooker.

Great for baking chicken! The rocks radiate the heat and cooking is much faster than a store bought grill.
