  • I think an instant read thermometer is a must, but Thermapen is just one of many brands available. I have one and I'm delighted with it, love the very fine tip and very fast readout, but any high-quality instant-read thermo should give good results …
  • I've done them 4 times and had near-perfect results every time, not skill just happened to hit the right combination I guess. I use 1/2 strip raw thin bacon pinned with a toothpick, and raw ground sausage inside so I cook to 160 degrees on the therm…
  • I just did my fist wok cook a week ago, and just got it medium-hot, worked well. Actually I would have liked it hotter from a cooking perspective but it also throws a lot of heat back at the chef so it's a balance between fast cooking and personal c…
  • I've gone through about 4 bags of RO since it went on sale at Menards recently (under $5 for 8.8 lbs). One bag looked like the picture the OP posted with lots of little pieces, and the others had nice big chunks. These were from the same stack at th…

  • Thanks, I will try it right on the coals next time. I was afraid I might get some of them poking up through the grate and getting soot on the steak. Do you just keep bigger lump on top to prevent that? Or just don't worry about it? And is 90 seconds…
  • Looks great. I've gotten similar results with the platesetter legs-up, grate on top, and pizza stone on the grate. Seems like it might be more uniform heat with more air space under the pizza stone but who knows? Has anyone tried it both ways for co…
  • Better yet, please explain your handle..... Chubbs, sorry no interesting story about the handle, just made it up after cooking my first batch of ribs on the egg. Didn't actually use very much sauce on them but it still required a lot of finger lick…
