Hi Cobb Grill Chefs,
I've been admiring these grills for sometime & have a few questions from experienced folks.
Have you found any type meat, poultry, seafood you cannot cook on the Cobb grill?
Which accessories have you found most useful ( besides the grill rack & dome)?
Since the exterior stays cool to touch; any problem placing grill under awning if its raining?
Thanks!

When you first light the charcoal you've got an actual flame, so caution is required when lighting the grill under a cloth awning. But once it's lit, no problem. I've done it on multiple occasions— occupational hazard of living in south Louisiana where people don't tan, they rust!

Sorry can't be much help in the cooking department until I get the fire lit properly. What I have cooked was good but it took for ever to finish

Well I went to briquets and they did light faster. I had about eight on there to cook to chicken breast but boy does it take long to cook. I felt like Rip Van Winkle waiting for them to cook. I actually finished them in the microwave. So my question is: Would they cook faster with more coals?

When I use briquettes I use about a dozen. But even then you still have to get into the "barbecue oven" mindset and ignore the "grill" part of the name. Treating it like a traditional grill will frustrate you no end, as you've already discovered.

Well, I'm of the school that, for somethings, more is better, so I use 12 briquets like Protagonist did. The instruction manual does say that it will take somewhere between 45 to 60 minutes to cook an entire chicken. Mine was right at 1 hours but let me assure you, it was well worth the wait. My wife said it was terrific and thats the only review that I have to worry about.

I will increase the number of briquetts and start earlier. By the way we did enjoy the chicken breasts. they were quite moist.

Yeah, it's a great little grill if you want to kick back with a book and a cold one and relax while it does the work, but if you're one of those folks who wants to poke and fiddle with it, it will take forever Optimally, you don't even want to lift that lid if you don't absolutely have to. Just keep the heat in there and let it do it's thing.

I just ordered the roasting rack from FireCraft and got it in two days. Maybe now I will enjoy using the Cobb more that I have the rack. The beer chicken sounds great - I usually put the chicken on top of the open beer can and roast

I noticed a similar problem. I think lump coal burns faster and therefore it's best, for me, to keep supplying the grill with more lump coal. It seems like the lump coal gets the job about half done before the heat is dissipated.

Next time I use my Cobb Grill, I will ensure to use some Pam on the moat prior to putting any liquids in it. makes for faster clean up.
