  • So easy my dog can do it (and I don't even have a dog). Soak plank, oil all sides of fish, season with lemon pepper seasoning, egg at 400-450. 20-25 minutes depending on thickness. 135 done.
  • Whoa, 2 year old thread. Alright! stlcharcoal said: Go over and see Ruff in Golden.  Great guy, and hopefully worth the drive to you. http://www.ruffsbbq.com/ 1941 Youngfield St Golden, CO 80401 This is where I go for all m…
  • Something tells me they are in Fruita CO? EDIT; found it, looks like grand junction.  Ill have to stop by next time I am in the area. 
  • Nice, where are they located?  I see their ads on craigslist all the time and have wanted to make a stop.  Are they in western CO?  I cant seem to find the info on their website (lots of words on that site...)
  • I feel ya man. I bought 10 bags the last time it went on sale. My shed is now full of kingsford and royal oak. I use the briquettes for my side burner. LIke I told my buddy, it sucks buying a bag of charcoal for $10 when you know it was on sale…
  • Thanks...but I stocked up (10 bag "max") when they were $7.88 a few weeks ago thanks to a tip on this board. $10 for a bag is still pretty good.
  • bgeaddikt said: Dampener/air vent is rusted shut/immobilized.  Easy to fix.  Spray with some penetrating oil, let sit for a day or two and then hit it with a hammer. Foghorn said: I'm a slob, so I would just clean it out …
  • gmac said: My wife PC stone lasted about 3 cooks before it cracked. My BGE pizza stone has lasted through everything including an unintentional clean burn that wrapped the thermo around to about 300 after doing a full rotation.  I gues…
  • I am not a BGE fanboy generally (yes I own an egg and yes I love it and yes I am on a BGE message board) but I love their stone and if I were in the market again, that is what iw ould buy. My pampered chef stone warped shortly after I got my egg. …
  • Boom. I've been wondering forever if there was ever going to be a royal oak sale again. Walmart used to do big sales but I haven't seen it there forever. Been 2-3 years since I had an RO deal so THANK YOU for the heads up. 10 bags ordered. la…
  • $2.75 in south Denver right now. Meat has gotten cheap the last year or so. Glad to see Costco finally consistently stocking brisket. no longer a need to have 4 in my freezer "just in case."
  • Why do I need or not need the wifi? Thank you!
  • Darby_Crenshaw said: busmania said: my fire always burns straight down and to the back. If all the wood is on top of unlit lump, how is it burning to produce smoke? That's where ou should put the wood. In the middle, up an…
  • @Theophan I am going to try your method next time. The hard part I have visualizing is that my fire always burns straight down and to the back. If all the wood is on top of unlit lump, how is it burning to produce smoke?
  • What I have found recently that works well is this. Layer of lump roughly the same thickness as the wood chunks I am using. add3 wood chunks on top of that layer of lump. Add more lump to just barely cover those first wood chunks you just added, …
  • When I want more smoke, I use my offset stick burner. no but seriously. I think it is a combo of what was said above. You don't think it is smokey but it is. One of my biggest issues when I started using the BGE (which was my first experience…
  • johnnyp said: Man, I wish my Costco sold packers.  They only sell flats and I have to go to SAMs to get packers.  I get stuck with mediocre pricing on choice.  Oh well, I guess I'm just stuck being jealous  have you checked recently? …
  • Because I am lazy, I buy the store bought dough. King supers (Kroger) had a great dough but they stopped selling it. Now I go to safeway and it is pretty good. The key, imo, to using store bought dough is cooking it in the cast iron. I wont do i…
  • Thatgrimguy said: busmania said: Thanks @Thatgrimguy, the grease is indeed an issue I have yet to figure out in my head.  It definitely cannot be allowed to pool on the heat deflector plates cause it will burn/smoke.  Thanks for pointi…
  • YukonRon said:   Something about smoked BBQ, that makes the worst of times, just a little bit better. Add a beer in hand and life is just about perfect!
  • YukonRon said: I swear these folks could tell you how to rewire a flux capacitor to enhance the Hadron Nuclear Particle Accelerator. I will stick to my BGE. Y'all are a dozen pay grades above my feeble mind resources. Don't get me wrong…
  • Thanks @Thatgrimguy, the grease is indeed an issue I have yet to figure out in my head.  It definitely cannot be allowed to pool on the heat deflector plates cause it will burn/smoke.  Thanks for pointing me in the direction of the old country bbq's…
  • SmokeyPitt said: That looks like a really cool design.  It looks like that smoker will be "da bomb".    I'll see myself out.... haha, I might try and sell one or two. Ill call the company "Bombs Away smokers and bbq." "Bombs Away BB…
  • Made a mock up to help me visualize and work out kinks before building.  Roughly 40% of scale.  http://m.imgur.com/Hts4hD7
  • I did see it and am following!  Here is the mini reverse flow I made.  http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/181548/my-first-build-help-me-please-reverse-flow
  • Makes sense. Thanks!
  • My mig is a Lincoln so I too am a big fan. What does duty cycle mean? I keep hearing that. Again though, if I buy 220v, I'll be running an extension cord from the kitchen where the fridge plugs in. That is my only 220v. I guess I could looI into con…
  • Yep, I'm between these two. I like that the miller can run on 120v or 220v. I don't really have 220v access but might in the future. The miller seems twice as powerful as the miller (40 amp vs 20). Cuts up to 3/8.  Lincoln  http://www.northerntool.…
  • Thanks SGH. I'll plan on Saturday. My name is Matt. A HUGE thank you. I don't plan on building this beast for a few weeks as I have to aquire the parts and I'm researching plasma cutters right now.
