  • Man that looks delicious! 
  • Welcome! I have an XL for a family of 4. We use it all the time for dinner for just us but we often host for the rest of our family. Even with the XL I often wish I had a second egg for either apps or side dish's. Not sure what your budget is but li…
  • I knew I was getting old when one of the guys who works in our install department came in while I was listening to Pink Floyd and he said "who is this?". When I responded Pink Floyd he still answered with "Who!?". I just shook my head and went back …
  • Welcome to the addiction my friend! Tell your fiancé to sit back and enjoy the ride.
  • Thanks folks!
  • Just in case anyone wants it, this is the recipe I followed.
  • Nice looking meal Ron! I say meal because I wouldn't need anything with that meat but a fork and even that is optional!
  • Thank you, thank you, thank you! I am sooo full!
  • Turned out awesome! Best roast I have ever cooked!
  • Yes you are all right! MIL is here almost every Sunday since my FIL passed. She hangs with the girls and we cook a nice dinner.
  • One simple word for that..........yummy!
  • @gmoor6‌ Cooking at 250 indirect for roughly three hours, then pull and rest while grill going up to around 500 or so to sear. Pan has beef broth, garlic and rosemary. @johnmitchell‌ Thanks!
  • That is super cool Ron! My dad unfortunately wasn't very good with his hands. He could put a rig in hole nobody else could though! I was very fortunate to learn how to drive from him. That is so cool that you get to turn on his lathe! I get to shoot…

  • And people wonder why kids can't even put together boxed furniture anymore!

  • You know Ron it's funny other than the ones going down the neck of my shirt I don't mind the shavings at all. I really haven't been able to spend a ton of time on the lathe yet because shortly after I got it I came into this other deal on the whole …

  • I hear you on all of the above! You are correct it is a Jet 1236. I can see that I'm going to want something with more clearance soon though. I found you in facebook right after I posted that. I love that spalted cherry bowl! Beautiful work sir!

  • @UrbanForestTurnings‌ LOL I'm guessing by the screen name that your a turner. What type of turnings do you like to do? Would love to see some of your work.

  • @stemc33‌ Thanks for the drawing! @UrbanForestTurnings‌ I have just gotten back into wood working. Right now I'm occupied with trying to get the shop cleaned up, organized, wired and plumed for the dust system. I appear to be collecting lots of wo…

  • Not yet, I'm in the process of building out my shop the lathe is behind piles of stuff. I went looking on CL for a band saw and ended up buying an entire wood shop from a guy who was hanging up his hat. My tools are all in storage right now.

  • Thanks guys for your help. I may have to do these on an order by order basis when I get things going. I will make my mounting bars out of bar stock and more than likely have them powder coated. I have several powder coaters close by. I may just turn…

  • I will stop in and see you soon Joellen, thanks!

  • I may have to make them a little more "custom". I didn't realize they switched up the mount so often.

  • Hey Ron, thanks for the shots. I guess what I need is the size of the metal used on the stock grills. Both the length available to fit a handle to it, and the dimensions on the actual steel the handle is mounted to. It may be easier for me to just f…

  • That's what I thought. I could probably just get some measurements of the different sized handles. It would be easier and cheaper! Would you guys be willing to shoot me the measurements off your handles and the metal band widths. I need it for each …

  • A family that is more than I could have ever dreamed it to be, my job, my families health, the great men and women of our armed forces and pizza on the Egg!
  • Ron you need new neighbors! There is something wrong with those people! Phhhhhhht there is no end to my grilling season! I shovel to the grill first, thaw steaks, then shovel the rest, then cook steaks.
  • That Filipino BBQ was awesome! Thanks for the recipes!!
  • Hah, I talked to you for a minute and didn't even know it was you! I was teasing you about snapping a pic of that roast! Told you my wife always asked if it's safe to cut stuff up yet, wondering if I took my pictures yet! You cooked up some good gru…
