  • Welcome!!  I follow the same process you do, with the following exception....prior to placing the platesetter or grill on, I want a bed of hot embers showing.  This may take upwards of 15 minutes with the bottom and top vents wide open.  Once the em…
  • Dave...thanks for the post.  Just ordered 6 packets of 3 different spices from Arora Creations.  Love Indian dishes, can't wait to try them.
  • Almost all are raised direct.....
  • Elliott's Hardware is now charging $11 per 10 lb bag of Ozark Oak.  Anyone in the Dallas area know where I can get it for less??
  • Mickey....I was thinking of getting the adj rig but didn't want to spend the $ since I have a platesetter and a woo.  My gut tell me I should get the rig anyway.  Who's right ...my gut or my wallet?
  • I agree that turbo ribs are the way to go. I'll be smoking some St Louis ribs today...be ready by game time.  Only choice remaining is which rub to use.  Decisions, decisions, decisions......
  • Pork tenderloins are one of my favorite cuts of meat.  I normally use Texas BBQ Grand Champion rub....cook it direct @ 400* dome on raised grill till internal temp hits 140.  I rotate the loin every 10 minutes...it's easy to overcook, check temp oft…
  • Thanks for sharing this info again.  I always use you descriptions to initially set my BGE for the temp I'm aiming for...then I fine tune it to my liking.  Thanks again...you've been a big help to me and others, I'm sure.
  • Red one was delivered yesterday.....Blue one en route. Happy days ahead for my son and son-in-law. The old man has had his for 2 years...still working great.  Love it!
  • Thanks...just ordered a red one for my Russian son-in-law.
  • Had goose for Christmas...the breasts you made looked great, think I'll try them instead of a whole goose. Where did you get the breasts?  Oh, what is your pizza plate resting on?  Thanks..
  • I do mine on the grid...raised, direct, dome temp 400*. I keep the meatloaf in the fridge till the last minute...feel that cold meat will stay together better than that at room temp. Best tasting meatloaf ever.
  • From what I subsequently read...stewing hens have outlived their laying days, are 2+ years old and need to be cooked as their name implies. They are supposed to be most tasty if simmered for many hours. My wife loves homemade chicken soup...I always…
  •  VI.....I wish I had purchased the costly lenses...it would have cost $5000 vs nill...these reading glasses are a pain. I was penny wise, dollar foolish. Oh well. Was advised to wear sunglasses...but don't seem to be overly sensitive to light. I liv…
  • Received a GE electric carving knife as a wedding gift 47 years ago. I only use it when slicing turkeys...perhaps 2x a year. I own various "good" knives...but for some odd reason ( sentiment, I guess ) I continue to turn to my trusty GE for my big b…
  • My vote is in! Good luck.
  • Great looking dish! I get all my lamb from Costco and I think you can buy chops like those for less than $15 a pound. Haven't got them in quite awhile....so maybe they are pricer then I remember. Anyway, try Costco or Sams...you might find a price m…
  • Mine are also Wusthof Classic....had them for 15 yrs or so...they continue to do a great job. Initially, I had a similar Wusthof sharpener. It was OK, but not great. I replaced it with a Spyderco unit a number of yrs ago. The Spyderco is excellent f…
  • Very nice. I do mine direct @ 350* dome.
  • Texas BBQ grand Champion is my go to rub. I've tried many different brands...they are all good, but Texas BBQ hits my taste buds just right. Oh, my better half also thinks it's the best....and that means I can cook and cook and cook and cook..... 
  • I think the oval stone will be the solution for the dry rib ends...and be better than my plate setter for all indirect cooks. Problem... currently have an old WOO2 (think that's the style I have) and I understand the oval stone won't work with it. S…
  • Cullum, thanks for the tip re oval stone....I'll check it out.
  • Smoked one a week ago. Did it like spatchcock chicken....used TxBBQ rub, set dome temp at 375*, smoked indirect (normally do direct for spatch chicken) till internal temp of 160*, pulled and covered with foil for 15 min. Was great...also had turkey …
  • Oh, I use Texas BBQ Grand Champion on everything...ribs, brisket, chicken, chile, meat loaf...anything and everything!
  • My favorite is Texas BBQ...especially their Grand Champion rub.
  • Pair of St. Louis ribs...a taste comparison...one with Texas BBQ rub, the other with a home made Memphis dry rub. Both should be excellent.
  • Thanks lou. Kroger had there lump on sale...plus they have a 10% off program for any Kroger labeled product if you have a senior discount card....I think 60 and above. The 10% discount adds up!

  • Bought some lump from Kroger two weeks ago. An 8.8# bag was selling for $3.60. Don't know who manufactured  it, was in a brown bag with Kroger label. Bought 1 bag, tried it....went back for 10 more.
