My first. I have been careful up til now, but tried something tonight I hadn't done yet. I was TRexing a ribeye. In the past, I have closed the vents (mostly) and waited patiently while the temp dropped. Tonight, I decided to completely shut down. Ceramic cap on top and closed vent on the bottom. A minute (or less) after I did that, I realized I hadn't added the wood chunks so I opened the dome. Too quickly.
Let's just say I let go of it even more quickly and said bad words. I love the smell of singed hair, don't you? Not bad, just a little on the hand. This is how we learn.
will not eat oysters. I want my food dead. Not sick, not wounded... dead.
