Okay, of recent, I have really begun cooking/bbqing more after buying my first book, How to Grill by Steven Raichlen. It really showed me what I was doing wrong on the grill...which made grilling more of a chore for me instead of enjoyable. I've done ribs, chicken and steaks with much success over the past 4 months and have loved doing it. Here's my question...
I already have a decent, 4 burner, gas grill which works fine for what I am doing (direct and indirect cooking). For Christmas I got 2 Bass Pro gift cards. I'd like to get more "stuff" to take my cooking to the next level. These are some of the things I am thinking about...
1. A smoker (electric or charcoal). Or could my gas grill suffice with wood chips in foil? Is there that big of a difference? Use the money for something else?
2. A meat grinder for burger and sausage. I have a nice food processor which can grind meat. Although I've heard you can over grind and turn meat into mush with a food processor. I'm sure it takes practice but have heard of many who do it. Again, save the money for something else...making the food processor suffice?
3. A sausage stuffer and set up, casings, etc. to make sausages. This is a big interest for me. I'm not sure of the difficultly of it though.
Any comments/suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated. I am new to this and don't want to make a poor, uneducated decision.
