We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

  • This is the only way to ensure freshness... http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=mk2E1CoGe98
  • There's always Cowboy lumps....
  • If I could do it all over again, I'll have all Rockwood.I never tried Ozark Oak, but, I have a stockpile of Rockwood (from group buy), Royal Oak (from Restaurant Depot), and Frontier (from BJ's).I got a bag of Royal Oak on sale and opened it up this…
  • Word of advice. Since you already have a dual probe remote thermo, simply add the reasonably priced party-q and you basically have a controller with remote read capability. The setup is possibly better than the digiQ setup IMHO. The smoke ware top i…
  • Thank God you were fast on your feet and got the hose. It could have been a lot worst... If the warrantee thing doesn't work out, you can still try to salvage it using JB Weld. My Kub had a cracked base all the way from the rim, bottom vent, down …
  • @Lit when the KJ roadshow was at Cumberland Costco in June, the guy there said the brown bag charcoal came from the same source as BGE brand. I quickly turned around and left!
  • Looks great! I need something like that to cook under for the large!
  • My brother-in-law made me this table and it's the best in the world!! Even if you guys want one, I ain't giving out his contact info so mine is "one of a kind"!! :)
  • tkleager said: How are your grilling tools?  New spatula, meat hook, tongs, weed burner, MAPP Torch... How about Grate Racks?  I have a set that I use for my plate setter, and my grids when not in use. I bought one and returned it since…
  • Biggreenpharmacist said: My small makes a lot of ash, but its not really a problem unless I do a long low and slow.  I can usually do higher heat quick cooks (steak, chops, burgers) 4 or 5 times without cleaning it all the way out.  If it get…
  • Fred19Flintstone said: Have you got two front teeth? How about a hippopotamus? The two front teeth are on backorder 'til March 2015.  A hippo won't fit on my patio.  They eat a lot and sh*t a lot too.  I rather invite @badinfulence and …
  • Thanks for all the suggestions! @Hi54putty what swing grates?  All I see are woos, spiders, and normal grates.  (link please!) @Lit adding tongs to the list.(can never have enough of those)  I don't go camping so a Yeti won't do me much good. (...…
  • RRP said: If buying a SmokeWare cap merely to block rain then save yourself a bunch of money and just buy a metal roof vent cap for under $10. Get an 8" one and it will rest over Miss Daisey!   Oh... I guess THAT's off my list now.
  • Congrats!
  • That's it i need a Joe jr. In red that can be my red headed stepchild. Wait I'm going to sell all 10 of them that will teach them....yeah that's what I will do So I read you post to SHMBO and she said, "you need to stop talking to this guy! He's …
  • I've hear some smalls doesn't get above 400 for indirect cooks. I picked up a used one last month that seems to be in that situation. For grilling or L&S, it's great! It comes to temp pretty quickly too. Maybe its me. I didn't have all fres…
  • I was living on Long Island back then. A co-worker who's always joking around told me the news so I rolled my eyes and kept working. When more and more people were talking outside my office, I closed the door. After an hour, I noticed it was all qui…

  • @BigGreenPackerFan‌ I don't believe that. The vision grills have that ember screen too, right?
  • Fixed. Took the door off and bent it a few times. Figure it was easier making the door fit the frame instead of fixing the frame. Test firing it later today....
  • @GeorgeS‌ I can close the door if I push the upper part of the door from the inside. There's very little space between the metal corner and the ceramic behind it. So hitting it with a piece of wood could crack it. I'm thinking of taking the door of…
  • Nope, no screen for ember protection. I should just unscrew it and bend it to fit, but, I don't want to void the Warranty in case I mess it up or something.
  • @Lit‌, I picked up a KJ jr @ Costco and noticed the bottom vent doesn't close all the way. The door slides stops on flush to the ceramic, but the metal where it stops have a little piece sticking out making a leak. Is your like this? I called KJ a…
  • Picked up at dollar store. Uses 2 AA and lasts 20+ cooks per set of batteries. I only use it for 5 mins until temps get to 400. It'll likely get to 700 but since it's plastic, I didn't want to push it.
  • My heart go out to you, your family, and his family. After my mom passed away, I was in a deep depression for many years. Those were dark times. I slowly came to realize that she wouldn't want me to be live that way. So I moved to Georgia to star…
  • NOOO!!!  DO NOT COPY THE VISION KUB PACKAGING!!!!

  • 9-10 days for me.  I do a big cook on weekends.  Garbage day is Wednesday, so whatever's been there over a week is tossed.
  • You gotta have at least an apple, peach, or pear? Cut it in half and throw it on! Skin side up, direct at 350-400. Flip it over when it starts getting soft and put some butter & brown sugar in there!!!
  • After the thermapen, you'll start stockpiling charcoal... We don't really NEED to do that in GA, but, when this stuff gos on sale...
  • Review is 11 years old, http://www.nakedwhiz.com/lumpdatabase/lumpbag24.htm, but, if someone sends the Naked Whiz a bag, he might do an update or something...
  • My local Home Depot only let me get one bag at that price. I'll print out the Tractor Supply ad and try at another store this weekend.
