  • MikeO,[p]Thanks for the update and my apologies for not passing along the credit - I didn't even know it was in the recipes section of the site, as I just keep all the ones I like in separate Word docs on my machine. This is truly a great very easy…
  • Pigasso,[p]I got this recipe a couple of years ago on the forum. My apologies for not giving credit where due, but I do not remember who gave the initial post. See below for my additional comments:[p] Grilled Sugar-Dipped Pineapple =============…
  • tach18k,[p]Thanks for the reply....went ahead and did it sear first, and the entire cook took about 2.5 hours start to finish (including sear, rest, and bake). My biggest problem with the sear process is getting the roast to lay properly on it's si…
  • Chubby,[p]That looks positively amazing.[p]Do you mind elaborating a bit on the "GrateMates" setup? Perhaps I haven't visited the forum enough lately, but I am not familiar with that type of setup and can't seem to put it all together from the pict…
  • jake42,[p]I picked up a tip somewhere long ago about the copper fittings - definitely keeps the drippings in the pan from cooking/burning so fast. I usually use 6 of them - one on each of the four corners, and two in the middle to help keep the pan…
  • tlhrtp,[p]Kinda off topic I guess, but can you explain the theory in regards to the egg maintaining temperature more evenly than a regular oven? I not trying to be difficult at all, nor do I doubt the comment - I'm just trying to be educated in reg…
  • Briz,[p]Here is one I saved from a post LONG ago. I just size down the recipe for what I am using. I hope the original poster doesn't mind me passing this along....[p]- Mike[p]BB.... Injecting is soooo much more effective and easier than brining.…
  • Crab leg,[p]MEEEE too. LOL. I miss that guy.[p]- Mike
  • MSmith,[p]I am not the expert, but since you have 4 butts, 2 up and 2 down, I would probably put the fat cap UP on those on the raised grid, and DOWN for those on the main grid. My understanding is that some folks put the fat cap down for briskets …
  • The Naked Whiz,[p]See, that's one of those things I wouldn't be able to get by tomorrow.....[p]And that picture makes me laugh too - every time I see it.[p]- Mike
  • Ed, While I must agree wholeheartedly that the sand isn't NEEDED, I use it anyway but for a different reason......[p]What I have done is to fill the bottom portion with sand, and then stuck the grate directly in the sand. I then build the fire on …
  • FatDog, Hey that looks familiar! :-)[p]Very nice - what does it look like inside the cabinet? Do you have any drawers - the one thing I really wish mine had ?[p]Cheers to you, and happy holidays ![p]- Mike

  • QBabe,[p]Ditto. :-)[p]- Mike

  • QBabe,[p]Try the link below in case the picture doesn't work, and just open the .jpg.[p]Cheers -[p]Mike [ul][li]

  • Billy Griller,[p]Here is another Pic. Pretend you are placing all of these pieces on the firering:[p]PlateSetter / DripPan / NormalGrid / Grid Extender.[p]Cheers -[p]Mike

  • Cornfed,[p]Hey. My emails to zzzdave@zzzdavidpace.net keep coming back. I also tried without the ZZZ's.[p]Thanks -[p]Mike
  • YB,[p]Thats it! You nailed it exactly. I may also add the beer per Chef Arnoldi's post, but this looks really close to what they are doing (including the sausage and carrots which I forgot to mention). I will be sure to post some pictures when I …
  • paulH,[p]Thanks! Actually, it is made out of red cedar - and no roof. I used a water resistant stain to finish called Sikkens Cetol ( http://www.sikkens.com ). I did a ton of research before I finished it, and I kept coming up with that bran…

  • Wonderful Wino,[p]Here is my want list:[p]1. Mini Fridge. Who wants to have to walk ALL THE WAY INSIDE for a beer ? 2. Umbrella attached to the table. And while I'm wishing I might as well go for a retractable awning, to just cover the whole p…

  • Wonderful Wino,[p]Here is my want list:[p]1. Mini Fridge. Who wants to have to walk ALL THE WAY INSIDE for a beer ? 2. Umbrella attached to the table. And while I'm wishing I might as well go for a retractable awning, to just cover the whole p…

  • Mac in NC ,[p]Here ya go.[p]Cheers -[p]Mike

  • Eggserroneous,[p]I would consider that a perfect medium rare. I have seen that picture at home and work, and the colors look a bit different based on the monitors I am using. Neither picture makes it look as good as it did on the plate. [p]Bright…
  • Super T,[p]Not doubting the Whiz's method at all, but I did my first London Broil about a week ago. I was trying the T-Rex method, and it came out really well. [p]I rubbed down with CowLick and mustard the day before, and wrapped and stuck in…

  • Driftpin,[p]Thanks for the reply![p]I don't think its teflon - here is a quote from their site where they explain the process:[p]"We coat the entire surface of the cookware with a proprietary vegetable oil formula, and bake the oil onto the utensil …
  • Charcoal Mike,[p]Anyone ? [p]:-)[p]- Mike
  • The Naked Whiz,[p]Here ya go![p]Mine is the Cedar one on the far right. A very very nice tool.[p]Cheers -[p]Mike

  • GaryJ,[p]Here is a list (I believe it was Nature Boy) posted for me back when I had the same question. Pretty much covers the basics, and has been dead-on for me during my cooks. If anyone has any to add, please chime in. [p]Boston Butt or Briske…
  • TRex,[p]Thanks! I'll give that a shot next time around - glad to hear it should be an anomaly. I might just have to wait until I cook some rib-eyes though - I hate to lose the bacon on my filets. :-) [p]Cheers to you -[p]Mike
  • Ed,[p]Yep - right around $200, including the stand. I picked mine up at the BGE store in Atlanta while visiting relatives (to keep down on the shipping charges).[p]When you get a raging fire in there it really does start to put out the heat. …

  • Karen,[p]Agree with all posts below, but the other item missing is a Polder-type thermometer. My guess is 99% of the people that post to this board have one (or more) of these, and we wouldn't want to leave your husband out of the loop![p]Cheers -[…
