  • Right now we have cherry, apple, peach, plum, post oak, sugar maple and mesquite by the pound.  I think a couple are short supply, might want to call. t
  • for grilling cooks I light in multiple spots covering how much grid I plan to use.   for example the complete xl grid, I'd light at clock locations 3, 6, 9 and 12 plus the center.   for half grid , 1 spot back, 2 spots center and 1 spot forward On s…
  • start the bird skin side down for 5-10 minutes then flip over to meat side down.  Use the bge large grid atop of the AR.  watch the skin as the bird cooks to see how it's doing.  might need to flip back over during the cook.  only rub on the skin.  …
  • It's a family run operation.  I met them at HPBA couple years ago.  Only complaint is lump size: pieces can be on the small size.  If they could bag bigger pieces consistently, it would be one of the best lumps around for the price per pound.   We c…
  • most places I just give them a phone number to get recognized for whatever. t
  • need a good steak fire, even burning lump across the firebox. t
  • Dobie said: @tjv whats the answer to my large deep skillet fitting inside the handles of a large Woo? I figure you're the Woo Master :)  Max. 16" diameter is a safe size to fit inside the PSWoo.  14" dia. will extend to the three half …
  • Gotta dig the cast iron griddle for blackening.  Pic is bayou classic two sided griddle (flat side) on spider in xl. Only problem with two sided cast iron pieces is generally end up with only one good side as the side that typically faces the lump t…
  • no, the PSWooCI does not work with the swing rack. t
  • HDmstng said: Here is another cool item you may want to consider, the PSWoo platform.  This thread got me thinking if the spider could be used with the oval stone or if I could get some sort of cross bars for my PSWoo2 to hold the oval stone.…

  • thanks to all for responding.  It is greatly appreciated.   To answer a couple questions. The large Woo has evolved over the years, going from a simple way to raise the grid to working with the platesetter and finally, latest additon, working with B…

  • inside the cooker, we use pizza stones for indirect pieces, makes it easier to change the shape, size and location depending on what we're cooking.  Also, it's 360 degrees of open airflow around the entire stone, no legs to interfere with air moveme…
  • open up the skin at the thick end of breast and slowly work your fingers into the leg. dump in the rub and work into the meat.  best if bird is a Grade A bird, insures full skin coverage over bird. start skin side down for 5 to 10 minutes to give th…
  • Great to see you're at it again.  The xl woo2 and 17.5 stone might solve your indirect problems and help with grilling by raising the grid to the felt line.  It's a short drive to Denton from Dallas. t
  • brisket prices in north texas are around $4/lb for packers.  The local walmart had select grade packers last week for $1.99/lb.    prices jumped because feed was in short supply couple years ago.  Many ranchers sold off cattle early due to the short…

  • tksmoke said: @tjv - if I lit my medium like that, it would be at 1200 degrees almost instantaneously.  It is incredible how fast the medium comes up to temp with good airflow and good lump.  Fire = fuel + air + ignition source.  Using the M…
  • dig the bark on the ribs....whatcha use...... I'm becoming a no sauce rib guy, liking good bark...... I've tried a couple CAB briskets,  not a fan so far...... t

  • - ok to keep the lump in the bag in the garage.  want to keep lump dry.- light the lump in multiple spots to bring the entire firebox up and burning at the same time, try 3.6.9.12 and center on lighting - keep the dome closed while the lump is comin…
  • gotta dig a fantastic brisket......very nice t

    in Coconut lump? Comment by tjv July 16
  • best to have flat at least 6 or so pounds, - I do fat cap down. trim fat cap to 1/8+" or so thick- I rub before putting on the cooker, wet with Worcestershire prior to rub. rub to early and salt in rub can screw with the meat's liquid content.- I pu…
  • cook861 said: IF i got a 1 inch thick round steel plate (14 inch diameter) would the woo2 be able to hold it up? I don't this so.  We'd need to add a front leg support and then the platesetter would not slide in and out.   That size and …

  • funny, I just picked up two organic birds from sams club today.  I got 'em because each weighs about 3 pounds.   Interested in seeing how the smaller bird cooks up because most of the bbq joint and grocery store rotisserie birrds around me are less …

    in Dickey's BBQ Comment by tjv July 11
  • for direct go as high as you can with the vertical roaster.  probably middle rig notches with a grid under it.  if you want to go indirect and have the oval stone, can try oval stone on the lower notches of the rig and oval grid on the middle notche…
  • I made this holder number of years ago.  Great for holding grids and stones, not sure about a platesetter.
  • if this is an xl, might ask bge how to adjust the hinge mechanism.  underbite and overbite were big problems years ago.  my xl, has a big underbite..... t
  • next time separate the skin at the thick end of each breast, work your fingers down to the leg loosing up the skin, then tip bird on end and dump in your favorite rub and use your fingers to work around.  easy way to get rub on the meat under the sk…
  • Big picture, to high a temp means to much airflow into the cooker.  I'd check the cooker for leaks and such.  One other thing to consider is wind,  having the slider facing a hefty breeze can mess with temps.  tom
