What is the ideal grill cleaning regimen?

Lifelong charcoal griller, recently bought a propane rig. It's great, but the combination of the lower heat and the larger cooking surface makes my "spray it with the hose, scrub off any big chunks, let it heat up over the coals for a while before throwing anything on" approach seem even more ill-advised.

Slow cooked pork cooking conundrum

I've got a 9lb / 4kg pork leg which was set to cook at 225F /110C for around 14 hours (based on guidelines of 1.5 - 2 hours per pound). I discovered the temperature was wrong and now I'm not sure the best way to recover the situation. [more inside]

How can I put a steakhouse in my kitchen?

Cooking pork belly instead of ribs

Sent my spouse on an errand to buy pork ribs for dinner. He came back without ribs, as the butcher didn't have any, but the butcher instead sold him pork belly with the skin cut off saying it's "the same thing, just no bones." While I'm not opposed to pork belly generally I'm not sure how I should cook it to still get the BBQ fix I'm going for. Details inside; advice requested. [more inside]

Wanted: Best Houston Barbecue

I'm going to Houston for a weekend next month, and will be wanting some good Texas barbecue. When I used to live there, I liked Pappas and Goode Company, but the last time I ate at either of those (about five years ago) I was disappointed. Where are the best places these days for true Texas barbecue in Houston? If they don't have their own smoker, or if the word "pulled" appears anywhere on the menu, I'm not interested.

A few free hours near south end of Central Park on Monday

I am taking a one-day trip to Manhattan. I get off the bus from Boston Sunday night by Penn Station and am busy from 11 am Monday until I catch my return bus from Penn Station at 5 pm. Two questions: What cool thing or things can I do Monday morning for a few hours before my 11 am meeting with friends to eat lunch just south of Central Park? One thought is to just wander that end of Central Park. What would be a good take-out low-carb meal to get to eat as I leave town? Is there any good BBQ in that area to recommend?

Brine AND dry rub chicken?

I always brine my chicken before BBQing, like any good cook. I have a new jerk dry rub from the farmers market that instructs me to leave it on the chicken for 24 hours. How can I get the benefits of the brine and of the long dry rub exposure both?

Help name a barbecue blog?

Barbecue sauce you'd find at any rib joint?

I'm making hot links on the grill and french fries tonight, and rather than use a bottle of KC Masterpiece, i'd like to make my own barbecue sauce. Generally I love all kinds of barbecue, but i'm looking for a sauce recipe that you'd find at any BBQ booth at any outdoor concert or event. Any ideas?

Best BBQ sauce for bison burgers?

I picked up a couple of premade bison burgers from a local farmer and will be grilling them tonight, weather permitting. What's the best kind of BBQ sauce to apply? Sweet, spicy, smoky, what? Preference given to something I can swing by the (Canadian) Safeway and pick up on my way home. If it matters, the buns are sweet Hawaiian, the side dish is sweet potato fries with chipotle dipping sauce, and this will be my first time with non-beef hamburgers.

Let's Cook Steakzilla

I've committed to barbecuing an 11-pound bone-in prime rib tonight. Should I cut it up into individual steaks or grill it as one giant roast? My grill is a hybrid gas and charcoal, if it matters. Any advice is helpful; I've never done anything this big. The diners' preference is for medium well and dinner will be in about seven hours.
