  • As long as it is out by July for Porkopolis' Eggfest, I'll be happy...
  • Great looking cook.  One question, what is SPOG?
  • RRP said: SkinnyV said: Can you open the big box where he places it and take bags individually where you want? There is an easy work around to what you are pointing out. Trouble is my driveway is 165 feet long with a t…
  • What would be nice is an outdoor fire detection system.  Haven't found much yet, but the seem to go along the lines of thermal imaging cameras.  Those aren't going to be cheap, and there are some technical issues to work out as well such as false al…
  • Speaking of returned items, there is a local online auction house that sells Amazon, HD, and a few other places returned items.  They won't say Amazon, but they'll list it as an Amazonian sale.  They also do business liquidation sales, from products…
  • Here is another cool item you may want to consider, the PSWoo platform.  This thread got me thinking if the spider could be used with the oval stone or if I could get some sort of cross bars for my PSWoo2 to hold the oval stone.  Assuming it'll work…

  • Dobie said: @MeTed here is a pic from the store site. Legs up inside the Woo. Pictures are quite nice too!

  • The platesetter fits into the PSWoo2 and I put it in legs up like you would for any indirect cook.  The metal ring of the PSWoo2 holds the platesetter in place and the metal rings sits on the ceramic ring (brain fart as I can't think of the name of …

  • Don't forget it is still going to be cooling down, but still hot.  I'm pretty sure they'll also remove any hot coals prior to you leaving.  
  • How about the table nest for a large with a piece of 3 cm thick granite underneath?  I just finished staining my table and already have the table nest, need to find the granite.
  • Is your Baking Steel rusted?
  • nolaegghead said: Everyone overbuilds the crap out of everything.  2x4s are fine for two eggs and a 6 foot span.  You can google the dead and live weight loading of the material and you'll find (what is it, 6' span?) it'll hold a hell of a lot …
  • Might want to replace the 2x4's with 2x6's on the bottom shelf.  Moving the Egg's to the edges will also help.  
  • Good luck and will be interesting to follow.  Not sure if it is how the picture is taken, but your table looks to be bowing in the middle where your Egg sits.  
  • The smaller one was a tad dry but the larger one was spot on. The pic is of the larger, it broke into two pieces when lifting to pull.
  • Thanks plumbfii01.  These are boneless and I pulled the smaller one 30 minutes ago and it is FTC'ing.  The other was 189 in the center mass and going to let it go for a few more minutes and then pull and FTC.
  • They are almost done.  I should have rotated them an couple of hours ago though.  What I'm finding is the outer parts of the butts are almost at 190-210 and probe is sliding in great, but the inner parts are at 180+ and meeting some resistance. I ro…
  • Up to 170F it, think I'll pass on foiling and let them ride?
  • Think 7ish each
  • Pulled at it 130. Resting a few under foil while sides are finished.
  • Not sure what the size of the feet are, but the surface area of the nest that comes in contact with the bottom of the egg looks to be much greater. That bigger area will better distribute the pressure.
  • How would this apply to the CI grid?  
  • Looks good, what type of beef ribs are they?  I made some beef back ribs the other day and while tasty, they didn't have a lot of meat on them and a bunch of fat.  Definitely didn't look anywhere near as good as yours.
  • One thing you may want to take into account is the amount of sugar in your rub when doing a turbo.  I did a turbo using Chris Lilly's rub that had about 3/4 cup of combined sugar (white and brown) and the bark seemed to burn a bit.  Crispy isn't bad…
  • Made this today as well.  Turned out very good, although it take forever to reduce the liquid level. I finished in the oven at 350F using an aluminum pan.  Did find by accident that I could help speed up the liquid reduction by putting the aluminum …
  • Really depends on what you are doing with the truck.  Personally I've had good luck with Toyota's and have owned 3 of them.  First was a 1990 extended cab, 2wd, automatic.  Put about 180k miles on it and ended up donating it in 2003/04 as the transm…
  • If the bag of lump does not fit, you must acquit!  
  • EggHead payed the asking price.  He didn't slap different price tags on the merchandise, or swap out the bar code so it rang up wrong.  There was no active fraud or attempt to deceive.   How many times does a store try and track you down when they…
  • Missed the pulled shots, but they are all sitting in the freezer in food saver bags.  The 15.5lbs ended up being nearly 8 lbs cooked.  Not sure how much the injection really helped, but the rub was really tasty.  The bark was very good, but I think …
  • Pulled after 6 hours and 40 minutes, it @ 200F. Resting now then pull and foidsaver for potluck in Friday. Very tasty and SWMBO really liked it.
