Hey all, in case you have not seen it yet, we created a new section today for BBQ Fuel Discussions.
 
We saw that there have been enough posts lately to justify having it's own section.  This way, it makes it easier for people to find the info.

Hope you enjoy the new section and we look forward to seeing all of your posts on BBQ Fuel..  Wink

Great idea.  There has been a lot of discussion about fuel lately so this makes perfect sense.

I'm so glad this is on here as I have been trying to figure out what fuel I want to use and how much to use with this new smoker I got on post the other day. My old one was lost in my divorce so I grabbed a Charbroil Silver Smoker, so far I like it well enough, needs a little modification I think though. Now just to get the fuel thing all figured out...

Okay, so the JB Halos mom and pop BBQ team have been practicing, timing, tasting for the HAVABBQ competition for the last three weekends.  Our first 'New B' competition and today we find out we can't use our propane smoker??  I logged onto the KCBS site, but cannot find information about this...can anybody verify?

Thanks,

You read correctly, you can only cook on wood or charcoal.  No gas is allowed for cooking food in KCBS competitions.

From the KCBS website:
Rule 6) "Fires shall be of wood, wood pellets or charcoal.  Gas and electric heat sources shall not be permitted for cooking or holding. Propane or electric is permitted as fire starters, provided that the competition meat is not in/on the cooking device. Electrical accessories such as spits, augers, or forced draft are permitted. No open pits or holes are permitted, except at the election of the contest organizer.  Fires shall not be built on the ground."

You can view all of the KCBS rules by clicking the 2nd download here>>>> http://kcbs.us/downloads.php

Sorry, but it sounds like a quick trip to BBQ Island will fix this or a quick build of a UDS to cook on and you will be ready for the HavaBBQ

Kcbs rule 6 covers the type of fuel that you can use. I think that gas should be allowed. You have to be a KCBS member to access down loads and other information.

As the rules state, propane can only be used to start a fire, but not provide the cooking heat. Electricity can be used with pellet cookers because the electricity doesn't provide the heat. It runs the auger that poops out the pellets that burn to provide the heat. Kinda like guns don't kill people. It's the trigger that fires the bullet that kills people...or something like that. Wink I kill meat, whether I'm using charcoal, propane or the oven.

Looking at the masterbuilt xl.  never used a gas smoker.  How long will a full 20 lb tank last?  Where can I find a bigger tank?

A friend makes fun of us because we used mesquite and pecan wood.  He says that's not realy BBQ!!  Now I am from AZ, and it make perfect sense to use local hardwoods.  What do you guys think??

I own a GOSM big block (gasser), and I use a combo of RO lump and hardwood chunks. It's all good my friend.

Eh? If it takes many hours for cooking to complete, and cooking is flavored with woodsmoke, that's BBQ. I don' give a poop if it's solar or nuclear (nukyaler) powered. Tell 'em to put their brisket where their mouth is!

For cooking, lower and slower. For spices, mo' hotter, mo' better. Habaneros rule!

Mesquite and pecan? Sounds like two tasty smokewoods to me! What does your friend recommend? Duraflame and ZigZag? Cool
