best charcoal grill

yes. i've been looking at the performer. great concept. when my 18.5" weber dies it will be replaced by the performer. my problem is finding a great second grill with high capacity.

best charcoal grill

very interesting. i've being watching the egg phenom. for a while...around 8 years. for some reason i have not been compelled to get one. not sure why, although i think originally it was because of the limited cooking capacity. at that time i decided to go with a off-set smoker/grill with a cooking capacity of over 600 sft. but i must admit i need to take another look at the egg.

best charcoal grill

looking to buy a news charcoal grill. love my webber but what something in addition to it that has a larger capacity. stainless steel with side tables would be a plus. even better would be a side burner that operates on gas for cooking sides. maybe i should just design one.

Best recent purchase?

your favorite uses for a food mill

thanks for all the great ideas. i think i can justify it now. purees for soups and chile pulp would probably end being my top 2 uses.

food mill to make red chile

ok. so i'm not nuts to think about doing this.

to be honest, i'm just trying to justify buying a food mill. i don't make applesauce or eat many potatoes, so i'm struggling to justify the purchase. maybe i should do a post on the cookware forum and see what everyone's favorite use for their food mill is.
thanks for the responses.

ditto on bangkok 54 and a few others. has anyone tried urban thai in crystal city. pretty good.

food mill to make red chile

has anyone tried using a food mill to make red chile from pods to keep seeds and skin out of the dish. sometimes i don't mind the seeds and tiny peelings, but it's a finer sauce without them.
