If you’re wandering through Pleasant Hill, CA and happen to drive past the home of Mark Griffith, you’re likely to encounter the sweet smell of barbecue wafting from his backyard. “Ribs are my favorite,” says Mark, and he’s been cooking those bones on his WSM since September 2000. His favorite aspect of the Weber Bullet is what Mark calls “the cost/simplicity/great taste ratio”.
