  • Jeff Hughes, Tim M has a great website, shows "how to" cook tons of stuff and set ups. Tim Hope you don't mind a put your link here[p]
  • Jeff Hughes, you will need a second grill (like a weber replacement about the same size as the bge grate) 3 fire bricks (might have them at Lowe's) but you can pick them up at the brick yard) and a pan to use for drippings. There are several people…
  • GBZee, What part of the country are you in? Wonder if I could get some of that Ipe in fla? Looks a lot nicer than your standard treated model.
  • GBZee, That's a great looking table. What type of wood did you build it out of? Also the stone work on the house looks fantastic as well.
  • Direct or indirect, sounds good either way. What kind of pan or cookie sheet works best?

  • Wouter, You guys are tough:) Do you know of a quick dough to make after a work day? The last pizza I tried was burnt on one side and good on the other. All that work for 1/2 a pizza.

  • Nature Boy, How fun that must be... taking the twins to soccer practice. All the kids are grown and I miss those days. Lord I must me be getting old to be thinking like that.:)
  • BluesnBBQ,Would you and your band be coming down to eggfest in Atlanta to play?
  • T-Bone,Don't know how I would live without my mini. If you or cooking for 1 or 2 it is great, travels well, and you can get 4 to 6 months out of a bag of lump. Use it for (2)steaks, (3) hamburgers,(8) hot dogs,(2) pork chops, etc. Haven't tried any …
  • WessB, Best fish I ever tasted is freshwater bass. No fish taste at all. To bad it doesn't swim in the gulf of mexico. But then it would taste like fish. YUK
  • Janet, Cox pools in Panama City,fla. has mini for $99.00. If you buy some other stuff, might even buy it cheaper. And I understand they will ship freight due. Bought my mini with some other stuff for $85.00.
  • Char-Woody, what do you cook on mini that requires firebicks?

  • GWW, I cooked a 5pd. briskett Sunday at 200 degrees. It cooked for almost 10 hrs. internal temp was 203. When you cut it, it's falling apart. Might be a little dry but q sauce takes care of that. I eat mine without sauce and it just so dang good I …
  • sprinter, you almost got to the best place in Fla. Destin is a beautiful place and great for fishing. But next time try Pensacola, about 30 miles east of Destin. If you like the beach you're in for a treat.
  • Spin, Topping where wonderful, not overcooked. I will lay down bricks for indirect method this weekend. Maybe that will cool off stone enough not to burn bottom.
  • I used cooking instructions from New York Style Pizza. Must have misunderstood preparation directions. "Set the firebricks in a Y pattern and set the stone on top of them." I will order stone holder or lay down firebricks for indirect method next ti…
