Topic: Anyone using the Charmglow/Brinkman w/RK drum? (6 msgs / 123 lines)
1) From: Ross
Hi guys,
I'm looking for anyone who like me is using the RK drum and a 
Charmglow/Brinkman grill with stock lid thermometer.  I would like to 
compare and share roast profiles.  Off list or on at your option.

OK,  fine with me on the first part,  I'm interested in data on the =
delta of the stock grill thermometer from a mid mounted or thermocouple =
reading closer to the bean mass/drum center.   No clue on the second =
part or does it mean your 2cents spent?

Merging the old "Penny for your thoughts" salt with the arrogance that mine
are worth 2. You only got a fin, so I owe you $4.98 change.
For a sawbuck, I would owe you $9.98 - Get it straight, Ray  -ro

Ross I bought a Charmglow but found out only after getting it home
that mine had no rotisserie cut out and the sides of mine are cast
metal and pretty thick so I now use the Charmglow as my regular grill
and use my charbroil for roasting.   Jared

I use one, but I'm afraid I wouldn't be much help!
I use a Brinkman Pro Series 6330 from Walmart. I don't remember the BTU's.
It has three burners plus a side burner.
I have not modified it in any way other than to add the RK drum and
rotisserie kit.
Here is how my last roast went:
Outside temp = 37F
Preheat grill to 500
Added 4 pounds of Costa Rica Peaberry to a cold drum.
Temp dropped to a low of 450
Kept the 3 knobs on high until temp returned to 500.
Tweaked knobs down about 1/3 of the way
Kept temp at 480-500
1st crack started in 16 minutes
Turned knobs down 1/3 again at onset of 1st crack
2nd crack started at 20 minutes (immediately pulled the drum at first hint
of 2nd crack).
Not very technical, I usually don't even time the roasts. Sorry I don't have
more info to share!
