  • If you have time, what about the KJ roadshow at Costco?  
  • I just got my second machine after the first one died after 4-5 years and had a 5 week wait for my appt.  Those 5 weeks were terrible.  I'm glad for the new machine and features, it is a ResMed Air Sense 10.  The best new feature is when you exhale …

  • Did you cool/shock it before putting it on the Egg?  If smoke is only absorbed when temps are below 140F(?) and you put it on the Egg warm, it may not pick up a lot of smoke flavor.
  • Thanks for the tips, will probably cut back on it as well. Used the search function but no specific reply so figured an older thread is still good.
  • I noticed the APL recipe has quite a bit of chili powder and cayenne in it.  Does the honey and other spices and such mellow it out?  Wanted to do the recipe but a few guests don't care for spicy dishes.

  • Saw this on Alton Brown's Thanksgiving show the other day...Get a large cooler for the turkey, an aquarium pump, and fill the cooler with cold water.  Open the drain of the cooler so it flows into a large pot (you'll need to add some water to keep t…

  • A skid steer or small tractor rental with front bucket and rear backhoe.  You'll still have to move the posts around, and the chunks of concrete are going to make those quite heavy.  Unless you are putting new posts back in, you'll need to fill the …
  • We survived!
  • My wife cooked the turkey breast in the oven today.  She said it smelled fine when she unwrapped it.  I'll keep y'all posted!   @YukonRon Yeah, it does get expensive!  We had already had the patio replaced and expanded in concrete this past Decembe…
  • Sorry, been in the bathroom the last two days to respond...j/k.  With two little ones at home, we decided to play it safe and toss it, plus been a bit busy.  The plan was to smoke it while I put down pavers, ~50 sq ft off our patio.  This was to kee…
  • Very cool beds.  I'm looking to put one in this spring.  Did you rip down the corrugated metal?  Most I've found is 39" wide, so you could get 19.5" tall beds if you ripped it lengthwise?  Are they strong with the ridges horizontal?  My plan is for …
  • Have you looked at the "Fold A Cover" system?  It is on par with the Bakflip series, and isn't the lower cost option.  I have the G4 for my Toyota Tacoma and it is the folding version, albeit solid construction.  Overall it has held up pretty well o…

  • YEMTrey said: This topic came up in  a separate thread so I decided to start a proper new thread to house it.  It was stated that someone cooked a brisket and it tasted like roast beef.  I've had this happen before with one of the briskets I've…
  • I picked one up during the deal of the day.  Did two boneless/skinless chicken breasts at 150F for about 2 hours, salt and pepper for both, and one had some added herbs.  I thought they were good, tender and moist, not super flavorful though, but my…
  • Had a few more up and downs with the cook.  The Egg wouldn't come down off 300F with my digiQ even after making the changes to the damper and daisy wheel.  Around 1230 AM I pulled the digi Q and went old school.  Temps stable at 250 at 2AM and off t…
  • Did yours have a lot of fat on it?  I trimmed nearly 3 lbs off mine and it only started out at 9!  
  • Put it on about 30 minutes ago, 10 PM, but temps had risen to 300.  I'd pulled the platesetter and added a bit more lump about an hour or so prior and had been holding 225 perfectly.  I closed down the daisy wheel to next to nothing as I have a pret…
  • There was a huge amount of fat in what was the area of the point.  The 225 was mainly for timing with the hope it would be ready by the time I left for work.
  • Find lump that is sourced in Switzerland, they have the most neutral trees.     If that fails, Rockwood is really good, and the KJ lump is a close second behind that.  I had one bag of Wicked Good a couple of years ago and that was neutral as well,…
  • Brisket_Fanatic said: Have the egg stabilized at 250 and shot the charcoal with a IR gun. Hottest spot I could get was 760 degrees! Great thread! What's the temperature range on your IR gun, you might be outside the range.
  • Quick question, do I need to worry about the chicken juices dripping on the corn making some one sick?

  • First harvest of broccoli from the garden.  Also got two cucumbers, but those will probably be the last.  Think it was some sort of bug in the stem of the vine killing it.
  • Should I top my bell pepper plants?  They aren't even a foot tall yet but seeing some bud on the top already.
