  • Right now, everything is being sold on "futures" - as in pay now, receive wine in a couple of years.  Then, cellar it for another 5-10 minimum. I'm big into wine, but have enough cellared to last my projected lifetime.  (or, at least until my palat…

  • 20stone said: Fantastic cook! Hanger steak used to be hoarded by butchers because it was ugly (and tough to sell), but awesome on the plate.  I gotta guy, so we cook it pretty often. If you feel like cheating, they respond really well to a …
  • If you go at it hard and hot right away, you'll get sparks and pops.  Better to spread the heat around a bit. And, ALWAYS wear safety glasses!  I've had some tiny embers pop out and hit my arms and around me.  No real harm other than a momentary bu…
  • Gasp! - But, microwave roux works great too!  I was a non-believer until I tried.  Both work great and eliminate the constant stirring and avoids the oil smell in your house for the most part.  I won't go back to the constant stirring method.  FWIW,…
  • tjsp said: Can you get this anywhere in California? Never seen it before. Only an online purchase? Very intrigued.  His retail shop is in San Rafael, but I don't think he has retail distribution.  His beef is served in a bunch of very high…

  • How many folks were you feeding?  Just you and the wife????
  • Flannery Beef is the absolute best!  I've been purchasing prime rib caps from him for almost 10 years and have a freezer full of them currently (over purchased, oops! - tough problem....) He recommends cooking these a bit more than the standard rar…

  • Current listed delivery date is 9/4/2016.
  • itsmce said: OXO Good Grips with the pull out display...11 lb capacity. Will have it on Friday! Thanks. If mine ever dies, that's the one I'll get.  I've had mine for years and they work great, but I didn't recognize the need for the pull …
  • Nice hat and I'm certain your son is giving everyone a Sic'em Bears!
  • I've had my bacon on for an hour now and maintaining 175 easily without my controller. The key I'm convinced is having a small amount of fuel.  I just used some of the leftover lump that I put inside a perforated wire ring (bought base on some comm…
  • The only way I can see doing it would be with a very small fire in the bottom plus a pit controller (which you have with the Auber).  I'm actually doing this tomorrow with some bacon I'm finishing curing.  My plan is just that - small central fire w…
  • bcsnave said: I need another cooler..I called RTIC in Tx today...they have high demand and they have switched to another supplier (could be problems) Did they say regarding which products?  Tumblers or coolers or just parts?

  • nhk19 said: I bought my BGE 2 weeks ago I was given a "free" bag of this.  Good, bad or OK?  I.e. Use it and then order some  Rockwood or go back for more?  The dealer "likes this more than BGE lump." I found it to be very good, but it's b…
  • Chubbs said: I roll with Fogo. I can get 18lbs for $12 and it is good stuff. Hope to get some Rockwood from @4Runner at some point  How do you get Fogo for that price?  I like it, but when I bought it online, it was considerably north of the…
  • Thatgrimguy said: Legume said: What cut of beef ribs?  Do you have any pics? I 2nd this question. I find "back" ribs to get crunchy and never get tender a lot of times. I think of beef ribs and my mind goes to "dino" bones. Which a…
  • Well, the meat has been tender (not fall apart tender, but fork tender), but the outside ends up like beef jerky in places and so dry it's crunchy, and not in a good way like a bark.
  • Can you go into more detail about your technique in terms of times and temps?  I'm assuming you SV'd at 144 x 40 hours? Was the brisket able to be handled at that point or was it starting to get delicate? How long did you smoke it?  Normal set up?
  • SGH said: For both the record and clarity, Yeti makes a great product. This has never been in question. Since July, the only thing that I have drank out of is my Yeti 30oz. For the avid outdoor cook or beach goer, I highly recommend a couple …
  • For those that have painted/hydro dipped cups, how durable is the finish?  Do you have to baby it?  Avoid the dishwasher?  Never bump it?
  • SGH said: DMW said: What do you use to filter it? I'm annoyed by how slow coffee filters are. Just a regular strainer? Brother D, I triple filter. I use 3 coffee filters. I know that it's slow, but the better  that the oil is filtered…
  • beteez said: Restaurant depot Carbon sel Sol $8-$9/bag if you are near 1. Don't you have to be a restaurant proprietor in order to get a membership and shop there?

  • SGH said: cssmd27 said:   (If I really, really wanted it, I'd just buy it and tell her later.) I do the very same when I really want something. You should have seen the look on my wife's face when she came home from work one day and my…
  • I already have a Pelican 65 (or equivalent size) and I'm trying to figure out if there is really ever a time I need to keep something cold for 5+ days.  We use the 65 a couple times per year as an auxiliary refrigerator.  I tailgate for college foot…
  • I thought you were cooking the chicken to a rare temp. Japanese do that all the time.  I was a little nervous to try when I was over there and I eat pretty much everything around the world.  Hard to break long standing perceptions. Looks great!
  • Thanks guys - especially Jeepster47!  Works for me with the new direction.  Would have been nice if we had received notice, but I'm glad it's up.  Beef ribs coming along nicely!
  • Can someone else confirm that myflameboss.com is not loading?  You don't have to be logged in or doing a cook to initially access the site.  Anyone can do it. Thanks!
  • I'm certainly tempted despite not needing another high end cooler. I will point out that a 7 year warranty is only good if the company is still in business and is willing to honor it 7 years out.  My knowledge about all these companies is essential…
  • It took me a loooooong time as I remember - as in a month +.  I didn't even know who to email to ask about it.  I have no idea who the admins are for this site.  It's like a nebulous unknown.  Is this site supported by the BGE makers? It's a very b…
  • Jeepster47 said: @cssmd27 ... go to your profile page ... then click on "Add a device" ... the rest is simply follow instructions.  Thanks.  I knew there was a simple solution, I just couldn't find it.  Worked perfectly!
