  • Bucky Buckshot, It came with my "now indispensable" BBQ Guru. Not sure if you can buy that item separately or not, you might check their website and see. Great little item, you can move it around to monitor any part of the cook you want. BBQguru…
  • Pork Butt, That dough looks real good! Is that home built or did you use something store bought? Do you start with the same thickness dough as you would for pizza? I am assuming just spread sauce on dough, top with ingredients, roll, and cook? Y…
  • WessB, Thanks for the heads up. That 90 minute thing was most assuredly a "senior moment", man I've had alot of those lately..........dont ever get old all.
  • Mac, Got to agree with fishlessman, the mad max version is really great!
  • bbqdiva, Awesome pics there!! I should have eaten breakfast, now I'm starved!
  • egret, That is the chili I am going to try, it sounds great! Think I wll try the camp ovens for the first time, less stirring is always a good thing to me. Thanks all for your great information.
  • cabdriver, I clean it out pretty often but, I use an old shop vac and vacuum it out from the top, rather than trying to rake out the ash from the bottom. I dont see where it is anymore work, ya just have to dedicate an old vacuum for the task. Wo…
  • thebear, That is a double gas/propane burner unit, it just has the cover in it in the pic. Far right is a separate gas cabinet behind that door for the propane, the other door has two drawers in in for supplies.
  • Memphis, Do you all do these with a direct, raised grid? Looks like from the picture that there is no plate setter involved?
  • michael, Here's mine, if you need anymore info., let me know
  • BabyBoomBBQ , Didnt realize until I got it home that it was "Select Grade", this grocer sells mostly Choice so I didnt look that close. Indirect, with plate setter, dry drip pan, grid on top of plate setter legs, Guru probe at grid level (not close…
  • 2000dawg, As the appointed king of Arizona today I agree, it's 5 o'clock somewhere in the world! Just remember it will be a long day...........
  • AZ Traveler, I put my 11 pounder on yesterday, got it on right at 4 p.m., set up the Guru for 230 grid, and let er fly. Well, about an hour ago, the alarm was going off and meat probe said done. Verified with my Thermapen and, sure nuff, it was at …
  • AZ Traveler, Where you at sir? Thinking you posted earlier that you were out in Fountain Hills? We're down in Ahwatukee, east of chandler off Warner Road. Beautiful weather eh? Almost hate to post a picture from outside today, I'm sure some fel…
  • Chaplain Jim, Welcome home and ditto, thank you for your service and your huge hand in keeping us all free. Give all your cohorts a big thumbs up, thank you, and be safe, from an egger in Phoenix!!
  • AZ Traveler, Me too! Going to put on an 11 pound "packer", I am thinking around 4 p.m. to have it ready tomorrow evening. Any one chiming in, do all these guidelines apply to a large cut also? I tried a point end once that was pretty lean to sta…
  • SouthOfI10, I did and it was a no brainer, just alot of work. I have many pics and plans to build an island, if you are interested, shoot me an email and I can send you alot of good info..
  • AZRP, Cool, I will try that method next time. By the way, still humming along out there, 35 degrees short of 200 meat temp., cant wait to peek in there for the first time! Pretty cool, been running errands, hanging ceiling fans, etc., all day and…
  • Haggis, Good deal, I have my very best Thermaworks thermometer now so I can at least be assured of the temp I am checking, love that thing!!
  • Newbs, Orion has been the constellation that has always fasinated me since I was a kid (100 or so years ago now....). Maybe cause it's the easiest to recognize in the night sky.
  • Herm, WOW, I did these last night with turkey thighs and they were fantastic!! I had read the process awhile back and happened to see 4 thighs for sale in my local grocery. The stuffing is amazing and they came out great, definately on my "do agai…
  • gdenby, Many thanks for the tips, helped out alot!! I will probably try indirect today, making them for New Year's snacks so I dont know about having a "crisp" crust for that.
  • GriffinGaDawg, Ditto, great job and many thanks!!
  • gdenby, Wow, thanks for the pics and directions! I was born in Duluth buy been in AZ since age of 5. Grew up eating these and make them often in the oven, never even thought of trying them on the egg. Thanks for the inspiration!! Best eatin anywh…
  • bobbyb, I also just recieved my Buckboard Bacon kit recently, hoping to get it curing today. Goin to Colorado for a few days so will cook it up when I get back. Cant wait cause the pics you all posted go me craving a nice bacon sandwhich real bad…
  • The Naked Whiz, Man, that sounds good. My son got back from fishing in Alaska last week and brought home a freezer full of Salmon. Havent tried any yet but I have high hopes. I am trying to fall in love with Salmon to get off my "Red Meat Ha…
  • darnoc, Man, nice pic!! Pizza for breakfast anyone?
  • The Naked Whiz, Just thought of something, do I sear it on both sides, shut the vents and leave it on the grid? I think I mis-read the answer the first time, no need to take them off and "rest" them and let the Egg cool down?
  • The Naked Whiz, I guess the best timer is the ole thermometer, eh? Never tried resting the steaks like that. Hey, I'm always up for something new. Thanks
  • TRex, Wow!! Great pics, cant wait to dig into my Ribeyes tonight. Sure makin me hungry..........
