  • stlcharcoal said: That is still a device that I do not understand the purpose of.  It's to "reduce lump usage", but you still need to heat the entire XL BGE.  It doesn't matter if it's on one side or the other, just in the middle, or around the …
  • we have the craycort ci grid in a one piece.  13.75" OD.  The one piece is easier to get in and out.  Most folks use a adj. rig crossbar to lift it out.    the ci grid looks tight.  how much slop is there with it sitting on the fire ring.   t

  • I've smoked a bunch of cheese and finally got around to using the A-Maze-N smoker tray.  Gotta say, easiest method to keep the smoke going for hours.  I put the tray on the lump grate and elevated the cheese on the adjustable rig.   The pellets come…
  • SkinnyV, I think folks are hoping to smoke on the mmax too.  What I was told yesterday by the reps was approx. 6 hour burn at 250ish before the lump runs out.  Best I can remember, that is very similar to the current small.   On the mini with the wo…

  • I saw the mmax at a show yesterday.  Gotta wonder why such short legs on the platesetter, especially after all the comments with the original short legged xl platestter.  Can't be much more than an inch spacing between grid and platesetter.  t

  • dang dude,  time to load up that fancy cooler with a very large cold great job. t
  • I think you are comparing two different style for ribs, brasing vs smoking.  By wrapping in the oven, you're basically brasing the ribs to doneness. Given the process you outlined, my guess is fall off the bone and very sweet.  Try the same process …
