It’s summertime, so that means we’re thinking about keeping cool in the heat. You can’t go wrong when there’s a big, heaping spoon of vanilla ice cream in the mix—especially when it’s melting over a bowl of delicious peach cobbler.

If you’re a classic car fanatic, you probably know exactly how to safely drive and maintain your ride. You understand what oil she likes, how to tune her up. Maybe even what parts to replace or upgrade (seat belts and master cylinders come to mind). Here at BBQ Island, we take our grills just as seriously.

To help your pellet smoker live a long and productive lifetime providing delicious, meaty meals, you have to make sure to keep it clean. Good maintenance is important for any type of grill, but pellet grills require slightly different care than the average kettle grill that you drag along to tailgates.

A backyard kitchen is the best way to turn your house into an entertaining mecca. To illustrate this, we’d like to share one of our recent projects where we built a premium al fresco cooking area for BBQ Island customer Kevin Alexander in Chandler, AZ. Kevin is thrilled with how his new kitchen turned out, and so are we! Take a look and get inspired by what you can do in your own backyard.

I get asked quite a bit about how I start my coals and
maintain my fire in my WSM’s . It
seems that most often, I hear people have problems with over shooting their
desired temps. First off, let me
dispel a myth. Most WSM owners believe
that they own a “water” cooker.
BBQ tends to be a man’s
game, not always, but mostly.
Therefore very few of us take the time to actually read through the
manual. If you did, you will find
that the water pan in the WSM is a heat sink, not a steamer. It absorbs heat energy in order to help
keep the temps from spiking.
