  • Congratulations and best wishes to your daughter and new son-in-law. Looks like a great feed and, as was said, that beautiful house will be a little emptier, but only for awhile. We have 5 bedrooms and when the siblings and grandchildren arrive, w…

  • We did a couple of pork shoulders Monday. Rubbed them with DP coarse grind and cooked at 250 until internal temp was 195. They were great. Nice moisture. We will do them again....tom

  • I also have the 632 and think it is great. The only negative comment I have ever seen is by some guy who complained about the fact that you can't put it in the dishwasher. This is true, but it is so easy to clean that using a dishwasher would be a…
  • I bought one and think it is great. Practical design and a joy to use....tom
  • Wow!!! A great bunch of replies. I can hardly wait to start cooking. Thank you all. Randy I got your email. Thanks for your help....tom
  • My wife and I love to flyfish. Some days it is so beautiful that we just sit on a rock and enjoy. When we go we split up one goes upstream and one goes downstream. After a while we return to the orighinal spot, have a beer and sandwich and thein w…
  • tach18k, That I agree with. I had the same experience. I keep meaning to get a screen. Probably won't get one until I forget and go barefoot....tom[p]
  • RRP, Cleaning out the freezer, I found some that I had vacuumed, and frozen last year. Put it in some boiling water and it was ready to go after about 15 minutes. It was a little dry so I added some water and we have had some great breakfest and l…
  • AZRP, That's why I boil...tom
  • John, I always thought that with a ceramic cooker there would be a time dependance on the temperature differance between the grill and the dome. On a WSM it stays constant about 25 degrees. On a ceramic cooker, I would think that as the walls heat…
  • Celtic Wolf, You are right. You can also use it for Irish Soda Bread...tom
  • alb, For years I thought modern chickens came withour giblets. I rediscovered them when I started to bbq. The tradition continues, the cook gets the giblets....tom

  • Essex County, Rarely post, but I really enjoy the site. Great bunch of people....tom
  • Will, I own both. Started out with the WSM and use it now as a back up. Both are nice, but the WSM has a limited temperature range, in my opinion. The BGE is easier to use and I use it most of the time. Weber Smokey Mountain has an excellent for…
  • MrsNuggs, Our neigbors are vegetarian. We had them over and along with grilled vegies, I had portobello mushrooms. I brush them with a mixture of olive oil and balsamic vineger. I then put them on a 350 degree grill(Used to make ABT's for the re…
  • tonya, I still have my gasser as I like the rotis on it. I also have another smoker(WSM) that I use when I need more volume, but I love my BGE. You can cook low and slow like the WSM, but then you can also go to high temps and really grill. I thin…
  • okesmokie, I have not tried this recipe, but I copied it off Looks good to me. I was in the same frame of mind as you are....tom [ul][li]pit-smoked ham[/ul]
  • JimiRayClapton, I always use the self cleaning oven. Now after turkey day the oven is a mess so it is time to also clean up the bbq equipment. The plate setter will come out looking like new. Our oven does not stink up the house, but the ovens are …
  • gdenby, I'll echo ronbeaux. I've used them on chicken and they are great, but wow what a lot of smoke. I used two fistfuls, soaked about 30 minutes.....tom
  • Rick G, Here is a link to an recipe called: GRILLED TRI-TIP ROAST WITH TEQUILA MARINADE AND CHERRY TOMATO RELISH I did not make the Cherry Tomato Relish, but we loved the tri-tip. I marinated for four hours under vacuum....tom[p] …
  • Spring Chicken, I've seen your setup in the rain several times. Other people worry about water coming in through the thermometer and the cap. You seem to ignore this. Have you ever had soggy charcoal, which would be my worry....tom
  • Al, I run my pizza stone and platesetter through a self cleaning cycle in our oven. They look like new when I am done. Yes, there is a little smoke, but it is bearable. I don't do it each time I use them. I do it when they look awful..tom
  • Edintx, Mix them up with cream cheese and make a batch of ABTs...tom
  •, I have the NuTemp 701 along with the 750 wireless. I have had it for several years and I am well satisfied. If I was going to buy one now, I would probably get the Maverick-73. They had quality control problems years …
  • BBQ Billy, We eat salmon quite a bit. I use a little EVOO and DP Raging River. I use one or two alder chunks and cook it at 350 on a grid extender until it looks right. It is great...tom
  • ToothMan, I cooked some chicken hindquarters the other night. Used a little olive oil and Tsunami Spin at 350. Thought it was great, but the wife wanted crispier skin. I suggested that we get a deep fat fryer, but it did not go over big. When I not…
  • Jwirlwind, Mine was as black as can be. Not only from smoke, but also from several spils. Just ran it through a self cleaning cycle in my oven and I am amazed. It is as clean as the day I bought it....tom
