  • I live in Vegas and was born and raised in SoCal. I have never had a White Castle before so I'm looking forward to trying it and seeing what all the hype is about. I will wait till the excitement dies down a bit. I cant stand going near the strip on…
  • Um Ok... Well good luck on your purchase.  HogHeaven said: I live in Hermosa Beach, Ca... There is a large BGE on the Strand. A famous section of land right on the beach. There is a guy that has a BGE he hasn't used in years. He uses his…
  • It does get warm here. Thats for sure. I agree with an earlier post that 1400 is to much. Ill come down to $1100 OBO.
  • Yeah I wasn't real sure where to price. I think a new egg costs somewhere between 750-1000. I am pretty sure I paid closer to 1k. The stoker is 400. The cart is substantial. $1200 was my initial feeling but I figure Ill get talked down. I am looki…
  • I am going to get a pellet smoker. Something that is easier for my wife to use. I singed my eye brows once and she wont go near it. lol
  • Have had my stoker for a couple weeks now. Smoked a turkey with it and all I can say is awesome. I can run it without the temp controller but it certainly makes life easier not to mention the web interface. The stoker will tweet updates to your phon…
  • Someone correct me if I am wrong. I just purchased a Stoker andt I am waiting for it to arrive. At any rate on the blower there is a damper that obviously has to be open when the fan is on. On the stoker it is an automatic damper that falls closed w…
  • Yeah not sure. They are not even carrying it right now. Not till late spring. Was just curious. I picked up 20lbs of Royal Oak from Wally world last night. I think I'm set
  • I have been cleaning out before every cook and no problems. I decided not to yesterday and paid for it. So I really cleaned it good today. Pulled everything out to include the firebox and ring. Vacuumed it out real good. Now Ill just wait for my Hig…
  • Well on a good note they came out awesome. Finishing in the oven was certainly not how I planned to do it, but the 4 hours they sat on the egg certainly gave them great flavor and tenderness. Our guests ate till they could  eat no more which is a go…
  • I tried this the other day and they came out pretty good. The guys at work loved them. The only complaint I had was that the smoke flavor did not permeate very far into the meat. So if you pull the skin off like I did. not much smokiness like I pref…
  • Cool deal. Just got an email that its on its way. Curious to see the difference. I passed on the nomex gasket for now. My egg is brand new so I figure Ill wait till I need it.    
  • Very interested in this
  • Gonna chime in here because I am looking to do my first brisket soon. You cook to an internal of 195-205? Is there a reason you dont want this meat at med rare like other roasts. Completly naieve here when it comes to brisket, so please bear with me…
  • I ordered one. @Mickey, have you tried using the balled up newspaper lighting method they mention on their site
  • @Mike8it Where are you getting the custom ceramic handles and damper top.
  • Yep. Bummer but it will take 2 weeks for me to get my unit anyway. I would rather they figure it out than have it be a pos. A little bizaar to release a wifi box with no wifi than have the software come out 7 months later. I am not worried.
  • When I spoke with them yesterday they said there will be a press release today regarding the Wifi. THey posted a comment on their Facebook group this morning saying there will be a press release today. It is now 3:11PM in California. Something tells…
  • Alright folks I did it. I just purchased the Stoker and according to the guy on the phone there is a 2 week wait. Cant wait for it to arrive. I just decided that whatever the press release says does not really matter. I like this unit better over th…
  • I am agonizing over this. I am waiting to see what their press release will say today regarding the wifi. I was already to go Stoker, which in the end I probably will, than I saw a post on here where a guy was looking to sell his unused DigiQ becaus…
  • Personally I would have liked to see more smoke, but the flavor was fantastic. Just enough smoke. Where can I pick up chunks because that is certainly something I am willing to try.
  • Alright guys here it is. 5 hours at 225 smoked with hickory. Was fantastic
  • Going well this far. A question regarding the smoking. I soaked my hickory chips in water for a few hours. I put the chips on initially when I put the plate setter in to warm. You get a few minutes of actual smoke than it goes away. Reloading chips …
  • Was just about to say I did some BSCB last night, Some creole seasoning and BBQ sauce. Cooked at 350, but I think I pulled them off a tad late. Still pretty good eating. Glad to hear it worked out for you.
  • Yeah I would be curious about that as well.
  • I think I am probably going to go with the stoker. Is the 5cfm fan good enough for a large BGE or do I need to upgrade to the 10 since the digiq comes with a 10.
  • @GreenhawK. Good to know. Thanks for all of the input everyone. Cooking some chicken on my BGE as I speak.
  • Hey mike no offense taken here. Bit of a techno geek myself. With the stoker it has wifi control but I don't knOw if it's something I can control from my iPhone. I'm not seriously that worried. But the day might arrive where I have to throw somethin…
  • On the fence right now. @JGIFFORD, so they are planning a wireless upgrade for the DigiQ that will be compatible with the system you bought? That sounds good to me.
