Right, know there is a HUGE bbq thread already. I can't read the whole thread sorry, it's just far too long for someone who was not there at the beginning. So I apologise in advance if some/all of my questions have already been done in that thread. However if the mods insist, then merge if you have to... I have a few people coming around tomorrow and I just bought a brand new weber kettle (57cm). At some point in the near future I plan to do whole chickens, smoke fish, pulled pork etc. Tomorrow though I have the classic problem of lots of people bringing all different types of burgers, sausages, chicken, steaks, veg, and so on... So I need a strategy. What the best way to approach the randomness of these kind of events? I have heard of the 50/50 method - would that help me? I have a few wood chips, should I just forget them for now? Any guidance at all would be appreciated.
