  • Nah, he tried to relate my post to hating animals, abusing them and that leads to child abuse.....I don't know. Something convoluted like that. It was a really nasty tone and a revelation of character. His apology as more lined up with not understan…
  • No, I am just curious if he identifies with any of the characters on the show. However, the sarcasm sign seems appropriate. For the record, I jokingly posted a pic of ol smokey from UT right after a Tennesse/Florida game with a caption, "how should…
  • btw, do you watch The Big Bang Theory Ron?
  • I even put the smiley face at the end of my post to let you know it was humor. Sleep tight Ron, I don't hate you!
  • Oh, you were trying to interject humor????? Now THAT is funny!  :-)

  • The egg does a fantastic job holding in moisture. With so much meat that close, hot days and a cooker that holds moisture, a great bark is going to be tough. Next time try doing 2 racks flat and see if your results improve.  You may also skip the f…
  • It will fit the bill. I am a fan of the roadie or tundra due to the hard side and value (over the soft). You would likely want to buy the sidekick which is a waterproof case that attaches to the Hopper. The Hopper does not drain like the 75 does, y…
  • RiverDoc said: Im very interested in the Yeti Hopper. Any Hopper owners out there and do you like yours? I like how it seems very portable. What are your experiences? Thanks- How do you plan to use it?
  • The disturbance in the force must have subsided
  • Maybe it is temporary....if not, it's been a long time coming
  • That AND they didn't have enough points of contact for such a heavy base. That is why they didn't ship with the XL.
  • No brine, spatchcock with coarse salt and pepper and enjoy. Do it simple first and expand from there on your next cook
  • How old is your egg?
  • It is old stock for a dealer
  • I believe the 2 tier system for the XL is better and the gap between the platesetter and fire ring is less. If you like the size then go for the XL. The large is the most popular egg due to size. Almost every accessory that will fit in the large can…
  • Go eat at The Columbia in Ybor City. It is great Cuban food

  • Jonathan1970 said: Thanks. I could never imagine buying one on-line, but we lack good dealers in the area. Originally from Huntsville, AL I'm new to the Eastern Shore and just haven't found the right place yet. As far as big cities go, I can …
  • I have a 48" offset (not Lang) and really like it. The added horizontal space is nice to have. That firebox is not insulated so be extremely careful on how hot it would get.
  • That is a little discount. I think that Patio model is about $1000 new. Those are good smokers.
  • lkapigian said: Been looking for a nice offset like Lang or Klose...found a 3 year old 36 offset for 850.00....upgraded stainless grates the rest looks stock...not significantly low but if you factor in no freight as I can pick it up, tha…
  • Save your receipt and which dealer you bought from. That is what information you need when handling a warranty claim.
  • If you like taxidermy mounts, hit Clark's a Fish Camp
  • Price seems like wishful thinking on the seller's part! You might keep looking in case the Maxi-Mini causes small owners to ditch their small. Moving into spring and more MM in the hands of dealers might shake out more smalls and mini's as well. As …
  • A MM has GOT to be more portable than a small, right? If not, I'm fixing to make a 500 buck mistake on the MM. Need input on this!!!! I do NOT know, but your assumption makes sense. Based on what I saw, touched and have read the M/M is nothing bu…

  • If you have a MM and use the small platesetter, the grid will definitely be at or above the felt. Others have suggested a Woo (which I don't own, so maybe others will add their feedback).
