Old Dave is an experience outdoor cook with a collection of outdoor cookers that rivals many retailers. Time and again he returns to his trusty Char-Broil 940X traditional charcoal cooker. This post on the Char-Broil LIVE Forums may give you one more reason to consider following his path to perfect “old school” outdoor cooking.
Welcome to the cookout!

Kroger had those great big ?bronto? sized spare ribs on sale again last week for $1.67 a pound and even though they are all pumped up with salt water (13%)….I still couldn?t pass them up and bought several slabs. Figured I could do something with them if I was careful with my rubs and process so they wouldn?t taste like cured ham!
I decided to do rib sandwiches with a couple of those great big 6.5 pound slabs.
I figured it would take about 6-7 hours to get these big rib slabs done so I set up the CB 940X cooker with some fire bricks in the charcoal grate which will give me a longer fuse burn and loaded it with some Wicked Good briquettes which make a nice longer burn in the grill. I then setup my grates for an indirect cook and used grids to make it a two layer cook to get it all on the cooker. Fired it off and then prepped my ribs while I was waiting for the cooker to get on temp.
