  • Is that a mini-max!  If so may I ask where you found the cast iron in the photo?  Have been looking for one that will fit in the MM without a handle.  Thanks.

  • We camp with the mini-max.  Put it in the basement of our 5th wheel.  Rides great there.

  • What was the total cook time/
  • One more question, how long per pound will it take to do the prime rib at those temperatures?

  • Thank you!
    in Prime Rib Comment by dihtn December 2016
  • I think I would have problems holding a 225 temp since we don't have a controller.  So would you go for a sear at the end?
    in Prime Rib Comment by dihtn December 2016
  • Thank you.  Ok, so I'll ask, so which cooking technique to you use?
    in Prime Rib Comment by dihtn December 2016
  • So we are thinking about a prime rib for New Year's Eve.  When should we purchase?  Would like to try to dry-age it in the refrigerator as well.  Thanks.

  • Thank you all for your suggestions!
  • It was on the second grate (platesetter/grate/raised grate/stone).  I was wondering if I put the stone in too early-probably in there for 1 1/2 hours before the pizza went in the Egg.
  • Using a dough recipe from the Fleschman Pizza Dough yeast packet.
  • Hey SGH, just wanted to thank you again for this recipe.  I cooked it last year and believe I made a mistake by not making sure the whole ham was wet with the brine and I don't think I cooked it long enough.  This year I left it completely wet and d…
  • Looks great!
  • We take our MM camping with us all season.  Have a 5th wheel and put it in the basement.  Use it every weekend and now that camping season is over we use it most weekends at home-unless using the large.  Will put a ham on the MM Thanksgiving and tur…
  • Hope the fresh turkey is really fresh.  2 years in a row we went to Fresh Market to purchase fresh turkeys and both years they were frozen in the middle when we got them.  Have been using frozen the last 2 years and they have been good.
  • Thanks.  What is the price/lb for decent grilling tuna?  We finally worked up the courage to try some tuna at Cooper's Hawk winery and it was outstanding.  
  • We RV with our minimax.  Keep it in the basement of the 5th wheel.  Rides really well.  I couldn't imagine trying to set up a large-the mm is heavy enough.
  • Love my Thermapen! 
  • We travel with our MM in our 5th wheel.  Leave everything intact and no issues.  It rides in the basement of the 5th wheel.
  • How long are the copper tubes you used for the raised direct setup?  That is a great idea.  I've been using small clay pots-they work but are not real sturdy.  Did you saw off the handle of your cast iron skillet?  
  • xiphoid007 said: I am a fan of turbo method, so cook at 350-375 to an internal temp of 203. The number is arbitrary as I've heard every number from 190-205, but that's just what I do. I've done as small as a 4lb butt with good success. Go simp…
  • Looks great!  That's how we prepare our salmon.  Made it last night-guess I've had it too often.  Getting too much of a fishy taste.  Tried marinating it and still couldn't eat it.  Good news is my wife liked it.  Did a chicken breast this evening a…
  • Ditto regarding the turbo comments-always come out good!!
  • We mainly use RO because it is readily available in my area (Fort Wayne, IN area). Works good for us. stlcharcoal let me know Rockwood was available at a store in the Indianapolis area and we picked up a bag this fall.  Extremely impressed with Rock…
  • Does using a propane torch cut down on the time it takes the lump to burn off the voc's vs using the electric starter or the cubes?
  • Have been doing the turbo method and the results have been outstanding.  Around 350 degrees indirect. When temperature hits 190-200 degrees internal, start probing until it probes like "buttah".  Pull and FTC for 30-60 minutes.  Usually takes around…
  • Does the dry brining help make the skin crispy?
  • Thanks.  I've done a couple of butts but only 1 at a time.  Have done the turbo method and really was pleased.  Appreciate the tip on the recovery time.  Will be doing 2 for a family gathering the day after Thanksgiving.
