  • Hmm, I wish I was drinking so I had an excuse but I can't add my nickname. I add nickname and click 'done' but it won't save. I've tried on two computers and I can't find the edit option on my phone.

  • Mickey said: How did you slice that pork? I used a cheap electric knife from Wal-Mart. I make a lot of bread so I practice my cutting skills weekly.
  • I think you will find most people will do a double stone. Your dome might have been at 550°, your stone was likely higher. You might of had some sugar in your pizza dough and that will cause them to blacken.
  • @pescadorzih I used the factory grate in the raised position because it was Ø13.0 vs the webber replacement grate of Ø13.25. Using the smaller of the two allowed me to lift the grid higher.
  • I'm not a big fan of BGE's plate setter so I figure I better make something of my own. I'll do some welding to it but I want to play with it first before making the shape permanent.Here is what I've made so far.
  • DMW said: Looks great, what size grid did you use for the 2nd tier? ThanksThe 2nd tier is the BGE grid. The lower is a cheap Ø13.5" weber replacement grate.Here is more info on making everything…
  • YukonRon said: There is a fine looking, awesome cook! Love the bacon wrapped potatoes. What kind of potatoes are they? Was this a meal for four? Something that good looking, I think I could slam by myself. It was a meal for 1 with some lef…
  • Congrats! I'm sure you will love your MM. My MM has become the only BGE I use now.
  • Thanks I had about $18 into the 2nd grate and all hardware. About the cheapest upgrade I've ever done when it comes to BGE accessories.
  • I added 3 stainless fasteners with washers to the BGE grate. With this, I can add another inch between the plate setter or rotate the grate and the 3 fasteners drop between the plate setter and fire ring for original cooking height. The last image i…
  • Big_Green_Craig said: I went to the local Lodge Outlet in Commerce, GA and picked up a 10" factory second for $4.99. The defect was on the underneath of the skillet and the cooking surface was pristine. I used my sawzall and trimmed the handl…
  • Salmon came out great. Thanks all!I did 1.25 lb salmon with EVOO, s&p and a little montreal seasoning done at 400°/ 135° IT. I also did some bacon wrapped green beans.
  • Good deal. I see my above post went thru quickly. Thanks for the speedy info.
  • And to add to the above, I got the 'waiting for approval' and I never seen it added to the forum. Two days later I see the message in my 'draft' folder and I had to re-post it. I've posted close to 1000 times without a problem. I'm not sure dealing …
  • Nanook said: Do you have any Montreal Steak Spice on hand? It is good as well.  I forgot I do have some spicy Montreal steak spice. Use it as is or should I add something to it?
  • Nanook said: Dizzy Pig Raging River is awesome on salmon.  Thanks but she will be here tomorrow and I need to use what I have on hand. Only purchased rubs I have are DP's cow lick and Plowboys the jerk.
  • On the shelf at my dealer. Grabbed one with my new mini.
  • I was rolling my eyes also but using it over the weekend I love it. I put about 1 lb of lump in and have cooked on it 3 times at 350 deg. 10 minutes, it's up to temp. For one or two people, it's perfect. TN2TX said: How do you like the Mini? …
  • YEMTrey said: Nice, beautiful setup.  I gotta ask though.  Do you have any problems with insects/ants with the setup that close to the woods and foliage? Thanks.  I've had my set-up for two years and no problems.
  • Congrats on your new toy. Don't forget your stokerlog (if you are on a Windows OP system). I also use Excel to go to my stoker every 10 minutes to log the temps. I just put on 2- 10lb pork shoulders. I'm also experimenting with some home made temp p…
  • OMG! That is an awesome cook.

  • I saw your message and thanks but I'm just trying to get info to those who have a Stokers that there are other options than buying a new probe every time when nothing but the wire is bad.
  • FlashkaBob said: Is it really that simple? Are they accurate? Please give more details. @bigguy136 I sent you a PM I could get into a lot of big words if I knew them but your temp probes are just two bi-metal wires of whatever length and …
  • Sorry for the delay. I bought my stainless tubes in both Ø.125" and Ø.187" x 6" long from this page. If you are using your metal tubes over, you won't need any. I also went with a larger diameter so I can have several sets of wires inside of one tub…

  • DMW said: Nice work, good to know. Also, Rock's has K-type adapters available if you have a favorite K-type thermocouple you want to use without modifying an existing probe. That is the connector that got me looking into everything. Af…
