In this Memphis Grill Review, Señor Smoke at Curto’s is told by an employee at Memphis Grills that YES, you can fit a water pan under your brisket, with the help of the Memphis small grate kit accessory. This is a game-changer, providing that much-needed moisture boost in the cook chamber!
The Memphis Pellet Grill delivered the goods as I made a brisket in the style of Aaron Franklin. Check out this Memphis Grill review as I detail how the smoke went.
We held our annual Smoke n Sear fest 2 weeks ago and I was charged with making the brisket.
Instead of trying to go wild with some exotic rub/brine/injection solution I decided to go lo-fi and attempt to dial in the Aaron Franklin method.
This would call for nothing but good beef, smoke and salt and then eventually wrapping the brisket in butcher paper to ensure moistness.
The butcher paper is a dramatic improvement over foil (i.e. the Texas Crutch) b/c it is more porous and allows the brisket to breathe.
I decided to use the Memphis wood fire Pro Grill and cooked at 225 for an estimated 12 hours, then I would wrap for two hours and keep in the cooler before serving. I sued Mesquite Traeger pellets and used a pan filled with beer insider the smoke chamber to keep it moist.
Well, things changed along the way, so check out the video to see what happened.

Memphis Wood Fire Pellet Grill Review – Prime Rib Recipe
It was New Year’s Day 2017 and what better to do than smoke a prime rib on the Memphis grill. It was the first time I have ever cooked a rib roast and following the instruction of Steve Raichlen, I NAILED IT. I used the reverse sear method in order to attain edge to edge medium rare and lordy did I accomplish that. Video below!
I’ve been putting the Memphis wood-fired grill through the paces for over a year now so it’s about time that I wax poetic about this incredible product. I s&# you not…out of all of the products we sell, encompassing outdoor as well as major appliances, I can say without hesitation that the Memphis grill is my favorite. It’s beautiful, revolutionary and it actually works!
Take a look at this outdoor kitchen we just worked on in Larchmont NY.
What this photo says to me is “THIS IS A PLACE WHERE YOU WILL EAT WELL”.
The owner took a very unique angle to the design of the kitchen. He knew he had a straight 9 ft run which doesn’t add up to much product after factoring in the necessary space between products. So what to do?
Instead of running with power burners and side burners and Versa power cookers etc, he took a simple approach.
He wanted the convenience of a gas grill as well as the ability to smoke with a natural fuel source like wood.
The solution: an Alfresco 42″ ALXE gas grill for all of the ease that a gas grill brings and a built-in Memphis Pro Wood-Fired Pellet grill for all of his smoking
and wood-fired grilling needs. After splurging on the grills he opted to keep costs down by using Blaze undercounter doors and drawers as well as their 5.2 cu ft refrigerator. This created a considerable savings as opposed to using all Alfresco for the undercounter portion (the Alfresco refrigerator is $3600 which was more than all of the Blaze components).
All in all, a well though-out design and a sanctuary where many fine meals will be created!
With the imminent release of the new Memphis wood-fired grills this week, I thought it made sense to offer some pre-release coverage on this incredible product.
IMHO the Memphis may be the best grill we sell. Yep, I’m comfortable stating that. To call it a grill is actually an insult bc it does so much more. It’s actually more akin to an outdoor oven…and a smoker…and a grill…it’s capabilities are nearly endless.
In any case, read the below comments from a serious smoking enthusiast who is smitten with his Memphis. This was after his first cook which were the scrumptious beef ribs posted below…
From Brian in NJ: “Put it this way, my son is my harshest critic and said this is one of the best pieces of meat he has ever tasted. Wife and daughter enjoyed as well!
I also just got back from St. Louis and had BBQ at Pappy’s. This BBQ on the Memphis grill was better! I am very happy with my Memphis grill…”
Brian’s Memphis Elite grill was an early Father’s Day present for himself. Generous!
Brian’s mustard slathered beef ribs at the start of the smoke.
Brian decided to hit the ribs with some direct flame at the end of the cook.
Bang! Check out the smoke ring. Brian. these are competition-worthy!
