  • @sgh That looks a little jalapeno heavy for me, but that's what this is all about.  Idea sharing.  I love it.   I would probably dice the peppers, so it's not overwhelming for me.  Thanks fore sharing!!!   Take care brother. 
  • SGH said: @Sookie- Sister I was reading your writing above about stuffing breast. Give stuffed thighs a try sometime. Debone them and stuff them with cream cheese, jalapeño's and jibbled up bacon and then wrap them in bacon. They are outstand…

  • bgebrent said: Looks great!!  Now I know what the hell I can use that cheese knife I bought for other than collecting dust, ha! Honestly I love mine.  I also use it for basically making "pockets" in chicken breasts that I can stuff with h…
  • Hotch said: @Sookie I am not a big fan of pork chops but those some great chops. I could eat all three. The fourth I brought in to work today for a co-worker, whose birthday was today.  I vacuum sealed it so that when he reheated it was st…
  • SGH said: Looks like a winner to me. Great looking grub. Hint: That Dales pictured above is a killer marinade for thin cut pork steaks. Trust me on that one. I didn't get fat by eating bad tasting food  There isn't much I haven't tried Da…
  • LOL being a new picture poster, the pics are out of order, but you get the idea.  
  • You won't be disappointed in the long term.   We use our old gasser as storage for our electric starter, gloves and platesetter.
  • If I am doing an indirect cook, it's legs up with the grill sitting on top of the PS.  It allows air/heat to the under the food without a direct fire under it.

  • Amy.  I like you.  And my neighbor is an **** too.  When I told him his dog had gotten out of the yard, he grunted at me.  Congrats on your first cook!
  • So glad you found her!  I had a kitty (not an outdoor cat) that snuck out and was gone for 11 days, and I know how miserable it is, wondering where they are and if they are OK.  The relief is overwhelming.  Glad your baby girl made it home safely. 
  • badinfluence said: Hello... things are well here. I have been really busy lately. To answer a few questions... i am no longer driving the truck over the road. I still own it but hired a driver to drive it. And now the big news.YES I BOUGHT …
  • Are you freaking serious?  Those are some of the best looking ribs I think I have ever seen.  Very nice cook friend!

  • It's all about just cooking something   welcome. 
  • Shelter animals are the way to go!  Congratulations on your new family member.  We have a couple adoptee's of our own. 
  • Looks absolutely gorgeous!!   I love doing hams in my BGE.  They turn out so moist! 
  • We bought a CI grid and it sits in our shed.  Honestly it really doesn't add any value to a cook, and it's heavy and bulky.  Personally my favorite addon right now is the DigiQ.  My advice:  Save your money on the CI Grid.  Congrats and welcome to t…

  • I've had to bump mine up before in the middle of a stall.  Just do that and get em done   I wouldn't worry too much about it. 
  • ERMAGAWD looks fantastic.

  • I did a prime rib this weekend with it and it turned out REALLY good. 
  • Welcome!  Holy cats straight to an XL?  I hope you have a big family   Fire it up
  • I think I have to get me that adjustable rig!  Very nice pics of the nachos.
  • I have found that sometimes I get a smoked flavor even if I don't use chips or chunks.  I also agree that the flavor is not agreeable in every dish.  I tried smoked chicken in a pot pie once and like you sensed, it just didn't seem right.  Every coo…
  • It looks like a wonderful place to build some memories, and I am not sure if I would do anything with that shed    It has it's own charm.
  • That brisket looks amazing    Liam is a smart kid.
  • I have to be honest, the veggies are my fave thing out of a boil, but this brings back a LOT of party memories    Enjoy!
  • For those nervous, I did my first a couple weeks ago.  What I found was that I ran into a pretty serious "stall" where I had to foil for a while, but once it got over the hump it was ok. I started to panic.  You never know though until you try.  
  • Oooh I really like this.  Beautiful finish, and I like the cabinets.  Nice job
