New to me gas grill

Postby Fooldancing » Wed Jun 07, 2017 4:23 pm

Hello all, my name is Matt and I am new to the forums.
I've had a charcoal grill with the side mounted firebox (low end Brinkmann) that has worked ok. My wife has been wanting a gas grill, but I like to smoke at times. Well, I just acquired a "new to me" gas grill. I got it from a family member. Boy, this thing looks pretty decent. Its an older Sunbeam 550 two burner. It's the same size cooking area as my charcoal, so I didn't lose anything there. It has what looks like a "smoking" rack above the main bbq grates, and the warming rack above that. I know most guys here are diehard charcoal/wood guys, but I'm pretty tickled with this. I'll try to post some pics if anyone is interested.

We're always interested! Probably to the point of annoyance.

I added a MUCH better thermometer for better temp regulation.

The way I post them is to open a message box and then look down below the text area on bottom left side and you'll see a button for "attachments" when you click that button you will see a "add files" button - - - click on that and it will allow you to browse your files - - - download them and the click the "inline" button to place them where ever you have put your cursor in the message box.

If you have any questions please let us know. Hope this works for you. :tup:

I'm not on a pc, but when I open this Reply box, there are a couple things just below the box; Options, then to the right of Options, I see a tab named Attachments.

When I post a pic, I usually write simple code for images and links. The picture is hosted elsewhere, like Flicker. But I also see a line of tabs above the reply box, with options for Bold, Italic and Underline text...further along the line is a tab for images.


And color!

This was probably way TMI.

I'll keep trying. But, back on topic, I will be getting to use the grill tomorrow evening. I'll be grilling chicken breasts. I'm excited.
