  • I have a 14 inch lodge camp dutch oven and I have used the lid for an indirect piece many times. Works great.
  • Tom, Thanks for the info, I know what I have works but now I'm really curious about what version I have... I think I'll break out the tape measure tomorrow when its light and find out for sure...after that since it will be open, I might as well put …
  • T, I sincerly apologize for my above post. I should have used the quote option and added some of my own personal comments instead of just a copy and paste of an old post of yours, again I'm truly sorry.My intention was only to help the OP with the s…
  • tjvJune 2008QuotePosts: 2,740 I prefer to use BGE's 14 inch stone on the Spider. The 14 inch stone will fit both the original and 2008 Spider. Likewise, BGE's 12 inch stone fits both Spiders too. The only real reason to use a stone on the spider…
  • Feeling for ya, suppose to be a high of 79 here tommorow and sunny.
  •   The reason it feels hotter to you when it is humid is because you sweat to cool yourself, and you can't do that as well when it is humid You sweat just as well when its humid. You sweat to regulate body temperature - by that sweat evaporatin…
  • Could be that the DIGI-Q uses a 10 cfm fan and the PartyQ uses a 5 cfm fan. The feed hole could be smaller on the 5 cfm thus restricting airflow for better control without the damper, I'll see what Lisa has to say, anyway Thanks for the info.
  • Thanks, Have an E-mail conversation with Lisa at BBQ Guru going on now (several back and forths) and she will probably reply tommorow. Plenty of info here on the forum about the natural airflow though the fans when not running. The Stokers answer is…
  • Just read alot of good info on Jerky and Cold smoking on the Naked Whiz's site, won't really need the PartyQ for that, so if it will hold 225 for low and slow without the damper I think I'm sold on one. Anyone have any problem with too much airflow …
  • bluegrasstiger, Have you tried to cold smoke anything or do a jerky cook say around 150 deg. with the PartyQ. I ask because I'm looking at the PartyQ pretty hard, it's cheaper than the DIGI-Q,there are no power cords,and it's just simple pit temp c…
  • Amother vote for the Maverick ET-732, I have the 73 and it works well, the 732 is an improvement. As for the Dutch oven I use a camp style with the legs so there is an air gap when you go indirect by placing it on a platesetter.
  • Can't say about the turbo,but I have and like the High-Que grate. It eliminates the problem of the original grates holes clogging up and limiting airflow (no wiggle rod needed) .Climbs to temp very quickly and maintains it and I have hit higher temp…
  • My lodge is the big 14 inch camp oven with the legs, when I need to brown or sear before stewing I sit it directly on a spider, then when ready to stew or roast I pop in the plate setter and the legs on the oven sit right on it. Nice air flow all ar…
