    char buddy,
    I received mine, two weeks ago, just as the family was set for a "spring break" trip and have used them three times this week. However, due to the self imposed Dr. Atkins diet, I began after a nine days of eating and drinking like a pig, I've only used them for spatchcock chicken and steaks. Char Buddy, they worked like a charm. Like others, I numbered mine from the smallest opening (#1) to the largest. For my spatchcock chicken, numbers five and six seem to peg 325 or 350 degrees like a new oven. I open the bottom vent to the maximum and after getting a temp at or above my desired one, simply add the ring. Last night, even as a Christmas newbie, I left the BGE puffing away, while I picked up and delivered three of my son's friends from AAU basketball practice and never gave it a second thought. When I returned, it was time to flip them and when finished, they were, as usual, beautiful to the beholder and greater on the tastebuds. I did use #11 to cook steaks earler this week, buying a T-bone, and a couple of NY strips and ribeyes in the "quick sale" section, guessing I could afford a mistake at that price. I used the McCormick's Montreal seasoning and slathered them with mustard (a first but not last for me)....and they were again, out of this world in tenderness and moisture. Tonight is steak night again, and I'll use the #11 or #12. So, while I have only used them on two types of meat, they both provided effortless, right on the button temperature settings and great meals. Finally, since I'm on "the diet" will someone have a beverage of their choice for me tonight? Wine, beer, scotch or gin will be preferable. Thanks....

  • Holy Smokes,
    I got your back on the beer's. Having the boys over tonight for a few steaks and cold ones. How much do these rings cost? I am just about convinced to get them, but need cost and source please. Thanks.

    Seth Howard,
    Thanks for the brews...should I burp about eight tonight?![p]Regarding Mickey T's Temperature Rings....I was fortunate to be perusing the BGE site and absorbing ideas one night three or four weeks ago, when he posted a mention of his rings. I immediately inquired and was lucky enough to be one of a dozen or so individuals "test driving" them. So, I can't give you a direct answer regarding a purchase price, but Mickey T. posts here regularly and will probably respond with his plans for the rings. I do know this, they've certainly worked for me.[p]
