I have heard before that it is considered bad juju in the BBQ world to not name your grill and if you don't name it that you will not have good cooks or results. I know Diva Q has a cooker named "Trudy", Mike (BarkShark BBQ) named his Stump Stretch "Angus" (Awesome grill BTW) and I have never named my current grill. I feel that may be why I have had issues with my past cooks so with the new grill coming soon I have decided I need to name my current grill and my barrel cooker PBC that is coming.
With that in mind I have now decided that my current offset grill shall from here on out be known as "Freenie" because I got it free from my inlaws because they bought it and I used it there until the smoke caused my mother in law to not be able to breathe so the grill had to go and I was the recipient of that exit.
The PBC being a barrel cooker I have decided it shall be known as "Barry" the barrel cooker.
What have you named your grills and do you believe in this superstition?
