  • I ended up with a US Army Surplus laundry bag and one of the waterproof clothes bags from Wal-Mart. The Wal-Mart bag was the winner. The Army Surplus bag ended up being the cover for my Mini-WSM/Smokey Joe smoker conversion. Thanks to all for the su…
  • Gary Wiviott's Book "Low and Slow" is the perfect beginner/intermediate smoking cookbook. While not tailored specifically to a Traeger, the methods, temperatures and recipes are easily translated to a pellet cooker.  On the remote thermometer, I hav…
  • NJL, here is a suggestion for that other eye of round: You could get a hotel pan and do the braising on your egg! Pat
  • NJL, take the rest of that eye round roast, chop it up, sear it off in a black cast iron skillet, then have yourself some merry little tacos! How done did you cook that eye of round? Pat
  • Smitty, that was the same thing somebody suggested but on that particular site - I can't find the link to order that product. I must be dense. Someone else suggested that Wal-Mart carries a waterproof laundry bag in the camping section. I'm going to…
  • There were some pictures of how a guy did this using a jig to get a smooth and level finish on the silicone over on the other forum. He used a product called, I believe, Permatex Copper, and his result looked really attractive and like it would work…
  • I have both BGE's and a Kamado Joe. The Kamado Joe was my original ceramic cooker. I like both brands, and probably use them in equal amounts since they are different sizes. I think one important consideration is the local dealer and in the area whe…
  • Looked at this thread today and still am amazed how professional and neat your molded gaskets look.  Man, if a brother were to type out and post some step by step instructions with photos for that project, I know another brother who would buy him a …
  • My wife would love that - she's one of those - and heck, it even looks good to me! Plop a nice thick strip steak in the middle of that plate on the right and I'm all over it! Very nice looking cook! Pat
  • There used to be a great grill and fireplace store here that had a build in vent hood over a large grill - I've always wanted to do that in my basement garage, but alas, that is unlikely to happen - gotta thing resale, you know. However, I would lov…
  • Don't get impatient with the egg coming up to temp. It takes a while - especially once you start shutting down the vents as the cooker approaches your target temperature. Some of my more frustrating cooks have come from overshooting the temperature …
  • No one has suggested the obvious - have you tried changing your wife? Pat
  • Chris - I'm enjoying each and every post - not only the pictures, but also your War Eagle!" at the end of each post. All I can say in return is "War D*mn Eagle!" Thank you for your service and sacrifice. Y'all enjoy that egg and bring it and yours…
