We recently had the opportunity to test out the Bubba Keg convection grill and let me tell you, it kicks some ass. Having cooked on a Big Green Egg I can honestly say it stacks up nicely. There are some pros and cons to each, which I’ll get into today.
On the same camping trip where I gave you the camping style shrimp boil recipe, we tested out the Bubba Keg to the extreme. Upon arrival on Friday at our campground/gun range/smelting can area/archery golf range, airfield racing strip, fishing hole I needed to season the grill. However, first I have to point out real quick my favorite part of this thing: the trailer hitch adapter.
This Thanksgiving I made my way to the Denver area to visit my brother, and I decided to touch upon the topic of grilling at high altitudes (5000-8000 feet above sea level). At higher altitudes, there is lower air pressure and as a result the boiling point of water drops. At sea level, water normally boils at 212′ F while at 7,000 feet water boils at 198′ F due to the fact there is less pressure to inhibit the boiling of the water (this can fluctuate due to the additives in the water, barometric pressure, etc). Another side effect of the high altitude is the liquids will evaporate more quickly so you’ll need to take this into account as well.
