  • You really need to visit the store to decide. We have four Costcos around us and three Sam's. They are all different. For example, one of the Costco locations has a far better alcohol selection than the others and we will not go in one of the Sam's …
  • Foil or smokeware cap they both belong in the trailer park.
  • I purchased one from Eric Albrecht and am very happy with it.  For his birthday, my brother wanted a carving board. I asked Eric if he could make something like the Boos carving board, which he did. At his party, someone else had the Boos carving b…
  • Their warranty policy is stated quite clearly on their web site. They also say that you cannot return the PartyQ after you have used it and recommend testing the unit before placing it into service. Sometimes it is best to read the terms before you …
  • Tony_T said: He set the daisy wheel and someone else opened and closed the lid (which opened the daisy wheel). How is this his incompetence? When set correctly, the daisy wheel does not move when the lid is opened. I would have thought t…
  • If only he knew how to use his tools, the duck would be fine and he would not be blaming others for his incompetence.
  • dougcrann said: I have been fighting an over (under?) bite on our Large. After being told by several folks it is "normal" I contacted Bruce at BGE....he sent me a new band/hinge kit....under warranty  Did the new hinge fix your problem?
  • Between those two it is not even close. Get the PS Woo and extender.
  • I have never heard of the salt before so I had to look it up. It appears to be just an iodized salt. Here is the ingredient list: Salt (Sodium Chloride), Potassium Iodate (INS 917) From what I read, the only thing that makes it special is the size…
  • SGH said: I'm ashamed to admit this, but when I was 16 I used the above line on the women I'm married to today.  To how many women are you married?
  • stlcharcoal said: Every bag I've ever seen has it on the left gusset, in the fold, within an inch of the closing tape.  You have to open the bag by the tape to see it.  Some other companies put it on the back. You are correct. I found it o…
  • Begger said: I just looked at a RO bag and NO mention of prop65, just a generic Carbon Monoxide warning. I also looked at a Royal Oak bag purchased in California and did not see any Prop 65 warning. I checked an online picture of a Rockw…
  • BGE warranty is no different than lots of other companies. Buy from an authorized dealer and you have a warranty. If you do not, there is no warranty. (I hit this recently with an Optima battery. I did not blame Optima, I blamed the seller that misr…
  • I have had a Harbor Freight Dutch Oven for years and I have yet to suffer from lead poisoning. Two of the symptoms are loss of appetite and weight loss and I have most definitely not succumbed to those! What does differentiate the Harbor Freight f…
  • I had the same problem, the first time. I put on my nomex gasket and it just fell off within a few months. For my second attempt, I sprayed a heavy layer on both the gasket and the egg and it has been on for years now.
  • I also use a Turkish coffee grinder to grind my pepper. It looks something like this:…
  • For those that use Rutland, I understand how you made the decision to throw caution to the wind, but how many warn their guests? Shouldn't it also be their decision?
  • Que_n_Brew said: Is there another thread that has the recipe? Thx
  • I enjoy cooking on Saturdays while listening to live broadcasts from the Metropolitan Opera.
  • I think it depends. We have three Costco's within driving distance and four Sam's Clubs. Each of the Costco's is different from the others as are the Sam's Clubs. For example, each Costco will carry a different selection of Beer than the others and …
  • Thanks for the post. I made the pretzel buns yesterday and they were fantastic.
  • I have been watching this waiting for the final price. This sounds like a great deal and I am in for one.
  • I have used Best of the West for years. I prefer it for pizza where the temperature is high and the cook is short. It seems to give the pizza a smoky taste within the few minutes of the cook. For longer cooks, I use Royal Oak.
  • I use a metal trash can that I leave on the side of the garage. It holds about three 10 pound bags.
  • The Stoker will handle up to five separate pits (the limitation is due to the blowers). With this, you can also have multiple temperature sensors for each pit.
  • Mine also cracked and was replaced under warranty. But, the new one is a different design and has a vertical cut completely down one side. Presumably this is to allow for expansion, but it makes my old version with the crack look more robust. I put …
  • J_Que said: Interesting app you have there GatoGordo. It seems that would be a better option then going the VNC route. I'm going to have to download it and play around test it out. Are you the developer? Yes. I wanted something a litt…
  • Another option is to install StokerWebConsole on your Windows, Linux, or Mac computer. Once you do this, you can control it from any device that has a browser. I control it from any PC in the house or my iPhone when I am out.
  • I purchased the V2460 at Costco for $50. It comes with an 11"x10' roll and five bags. It seems like a pretty good deal. The only color I saw was white.
  • SmokeyPitt said: Looks like they have a 5 pack sampler with free shipping!  Thanks for the link. I just ordered the 5 pack sampler.
