  • @Black_Badger  I didn't do any smoke... in fact I used Natures Own hardwood blend so I wouldn't get hardly any smoke. But in the past for a smokey lasagna I have smoked the veggies prior to chopping and inserting in the lasagna. See this ol…
  • @hapster I'm watching sodium, saturated fats and cholesterol... So I'm still good!
  • They look awesome... Gotta try it soon. Thanks for sharing.
  • Thanks guys... We had some company tonight and finished it up, and it was really good again. The Cen-Tex Smoker  Please don't tell us about your dreams...  :-t
  • Give it a try and see what you think... @Griffin commented on their site and that accounts for something in my book. He does some really great cooks and posts here.
  • Not real sure I'm raising the bar. Hell I'm lucky if I get it back halfway to where it was when I made that pork chop-mangrate disaster I called a joke.  :-\"
  • My reading comprehensions terrible so I'm not sure I learned anything, but I thought it was a funny article. JK. Made me laugh so I'll try the recipe too. Thanks for the link.

  • Doc the wings look great, but what is that pie you forgot to mention? Strawberry or cherry?

  • Start with a food that you are comfy making, there is definitely a learning curve for temp control but it is easy to pick up. Long slow fire is not a big deal once you find your rhythm. Some folks find it harder to control higher temp cooks. Ask lo…
  • Look at all those juices! Looks like you nailed it!  =D>

  • Looks great! Anything is worth sharing, you never know what may spark a question or suggestion to improve yourself or someone else here... Those gouda and scallion tators are terrific! Love em.
  • They have great stuff. Like Richard  Fl said their catalog is fun to read for some of the neat recipes they publish. For roasting chicken we like Fox Point (salt, shallots, chives, garlic, onion, and green peppercorns) 33rd and Galena is another g…
  • Oilpony Do you have a camera? we would love to see any progress made.
  • I recently installed a nomex from BGE and have done 3 pizza cooks (500*-700*) with out any incidence. I only did 1 short low and slow before my first pizza cook. Maybe there is a difference in quality between brands? The Rutland route seems to hav…
  • Start to check for tenderness around 190* with a temperature probe, it will slide in and out easily. Finished temps can go higher so be sure to wait till it's tender. Some folks do the twist test with a fork.... The meat should twist and slightly se…

  •  Doc said "Build a "sandbox" and set your pit in that.  Your deck will be safe.  That is how Huckleberry and Jim did it on the raft."  Just hope you don't have kids cause daddy setting their sandbox on fire could result in therapy later.  :-t
  • Looking good! She looks like a chunky chicken.
  • Tough to beat ham and beans! Looks great.
  • I am so jealous! That is a bad @55 cake! Sorry @Eggcelsior but you lose... (your cake is cool too, but you still lose)
  • Looks great! Pizza is always fun. Different flours play a big role in the doughs taste and texture, it looks like you are off to a great start so keep trying new recipes and different ingredients till you find what works for you and your taste buds…

  • My wife won't touch the egg but she still uses our gasser. I wish I could break her of the gasser so I could give it away (motive to fill the space with another egg)
