Going to be tough to get into the $500 range with a pro-sumer lens. It is not a zoom, but the 85 1.8G is a sharp lens. With a crop body that be equivalent to around 130mm. Are you wanting a zoom?
If not, the 18-200 is …
Had someone house sit for a weekend. Didn't think much of it. I know he's eyed my egg before but I never thought he would use it without asking.... he did.
He broke the f*&#ing handle. To make matters worse, he didn't tell me; I found out nex…
Shun, Global, Miyabi & Henckel are all excellent, but as previously stated it's best to take her and have her try them out. Ergonomics vary from person to person.
Since you mentioned your wife chops lots of vegetables... I just got this Global …
I smoked a turkey breast on Thanksgiving.
I did indirect at 325-350 and used two handfuls of pecan and apple chips right before the breast went on.
It took about two hours to cook to temperature.
It was awesome.
I did my 1st turkey on the egg last year. Now, it's assumed that I will be hosting from here on out since everyone loved it. Rest assured that your company will want to come back next year.
I was a little stressed leading up to it, but it went perf…
What type of chips? Fruit woods are much lighter than other woods like mesquite or hickory. That could be part of it not being smokey enough for your liking.
Last time I used a combination of pecan and apple. One large …
You just stepped into my wheelhouse. Do Rulman's poultry brine for 24 hours. Rinse well and leave uncovered for 24 hours in the fridge.
Then, follow the mad max method for the cook. Use a little cherry wood for color. A l…
You've been able to buy that beer for a few months here around Austin. I tried it a few weeks back; it's pretty good but not my style of beer. You can definitely taste the smokiness.
I've seen it at Spec's and the South Lamar Wine and Spirits.
Amazing trend here - very few note "main stream" beers, other than @henapple who of course owns shares in Pabst. Craft (quality?) beers seem to be the goto choice for those who cook on the egg. As we all know, good beverage…
That's maybe the un-coolest thing I've ever seen for BBQ.
What about the beloved Ham Dogger?
Or the awesome Grill Combs?
Or this awesome Apron which clearly dominates the Pitt Boss Apron?

I've made it couple of times for guests and they all look at me like "WTF? you want me to eat that?"
And of course, whe…
Did any of you fellow beer-lovers manage to get a hold of that Westvleteren 12 when it came out here in the states? I caught the announcement on the radio at 8:30 in the morning and by the time I got to the store at 9:15…
Don't bother with Ruination - wait for Stone "Enjoy By IPA"...incredible.
Looking at their interactive map http://www.stonebrewing.com/enjoyby/mapr10.asp
Not available in Texas?
Damn; we may have to setup som…
"enjoying Dogfish Head 90-minute IPA"
Had a few of these last night. I am a huge IPA fan. Stone Ruination is hard to beat and probably my favorite. Hard to find though.
Some of my fav right now are: Stone…
I use this rub from Williams-Sonoma:Kosher salt, paprika, crushed red pepper, chili pepper, oregano, basil, coriander, safflower oil.I usually use it with a cedar plank, but I am sure the alder would be wonderful as well.

somebody drank the kool aid! Love it. Congrats and welcome
Thanks! I've noticed quite a few members from the Austin area, myself included.
I've taken it upon myself in a personal crusade to force everyone I know…
