  • I'm "curing" the little guy today and i've been able to go up to 300, down to 250, on a whim and hold it.  Been holding 250 for almost 1.5 hours now. I am really impressed and the coal use after close to 4 hours is pretty amazing as well. Really, re…
  • Fred19Flintstone said: I have the small and the airflow is not good.  The minis a rocket by comparison.  I've heard the mm is also a rocket.   Are u using a high q grate?
  • Jeepster47 said: You might try this approach 'till Thursday.  Bamboo skewers shaved a little on the ends to hold the door tight.  Shouldn't need it during cooking, only for shutdown ... maybe. Thanks man!!!!!!!
  • I went with the small for $569.  The mini max was $599. I just don't see myself carrying it around so the small it was.  I swear this **** only happens to me but the dam wire screen part of the draft door was missing.  I think someone stole it off t…
  • Mattman3969 said: I have both and the mini gets more use than the small but the small is an awesome egg.  I have no issues with it at all.  The question you have to ask yourself is which one do you want first because eventually you will want bo…
  • Ozzie_Isaac said: Those sound like Mini-Max prices.  Mini should be around $399 I thought. Seems like the mini is in demand and the small isn't around here (cumming, ga).

  • Y'all can yell at me all you want.  There are some things I gotta cook on the Weber gas for the wife.  That said, it's a 6 burner 2003 edition Weber Summit Gold D.  Replaced the OEM grates countless times.  Finally, 2 weeks ago, replaced with Grillg…
  • This is what I did for my XL.  2 weber grates and 4 bolts, washers, nuts.  Done.
  • td66snrf said: @dan23 My KO showed up yesterday and I can see why everyone likes them so much. Per Amazon the strop belt should be here tomorrow. I'll let you know how it does.  I wrote about my 1st run here (a tip or 2 included). Make s…
  • td66snrf said: @dan23 yeah I saw it there also and you can buy it from there website, all 15bucks. Any comments on how it works?  I haven't bought it, yet.  I'll be doing my knives in the next few weeks and intend to buy it.  I've got so…
  • lousubcap said: @danv23 - I am on my third cook with Basques and it is great to use.  I am always looking to give various brands of lump a go just to see what's out there. Great haul. $15.50 per bag!
  • Went in with some buddies and split up 2 pallets of Basques Sugar Maple. What you see there is after a 16 hour butt cook.  Filled up the egg to the top of the fire ring and that's what was left.  Needless to say I am super impressed.
  • chrisc133 said: Costco here has prime ny strips for 11.99 a lb today  That's what they were charging last week for pre-cut.
  • pescadorzih said: Nice score! Wish the costco's around here would have prime. We don't get full packers at our Costco's and no more Tri Tips. The least they can do is Prime me @ $6.99.
  • buzd504 said: For the future, I have been really pleased with for smoking wood.  Great service, product, and very responsive. (Note: no affiliation, just a satisfied customer) Got Post Oak from them. I 100% agre…
  • I've never seen Franklin strippin bark. He seems to do alright.
  • blind99 said: Do you have a vacuum sealer to package them with? Yep. Foodsaver and all have been individually packed and are in the freezer. If you don't have a vac sealer I and the others on this board can't recommend them enough.
  • Here are the fruits. The pack was 17.75lbs.  I got 10 perfect 1.5" steaks along with the end that I'll figure out something to do with.  It was a lot easier than I thought, so nobody should fear it.  If you've trimmed a brisket, you can make steaks.…
  • Eggscuses said: Dan how long into the cook before you can get the probes in? 4 hours my friend.  No fat trimming necessary, fat side down.
  • Dam, wrong butt picture.  Those of you who are observant would have noticed the XL pic, but the butts were clearly on a Large (my other baby).  Here is the correct pic so that nobody can call me a liar, which I will go to my grave not being.
  • Drink yourself a path
  • FATC1TY said: Before Christmas they were 7.99 a pound and had 25 off each pack. I think I paid under 95 for the whole loin.  Heck of a deal.  Got around 15-16 steaks from it. Nice thick one.  Ill have to go back up there soon! Hope they put t…
  • Expensive? Yes. Awesome? Ya, I've handled a 500 degree platesetter with zero problems.
  • chrisc133 said: Same price here in Augusta already cut into nice thick steaks. Picked up a pack last week. Tenderloin cut into filets was 9.99 a lb.  They were $11.99 cut.  I asked and he pointed over them and said he would have to charge …
  • SmokeyPitt said: Wow that is a score.  Are you going to cut it into steaks and freeze?  Maybe try dry aging a chunk of it?  I gotta do steaks.  To scared to really do anything else.  The meat guy was kind enough to show/describe how to c…
  • JohnInCarolina said: I'm still trying to get over the fact that there's a town named "Cumming" in Georgia.  I thought for sure they'd outlawed stuff like that down there.   Yep, and there's a ****'s (sporting goods) next to BJ's in Cummi…
