  • Interesting observation, do you have a dual probe thermo? Reason I ask, occasionally when using only the pit probe of my Mav 733, I've "parked" the food probe under my table nested MBGE. I;ve never seen it read over 125ºC. Maybe you could try the sa…
  • theyolksonyou said: Boone's Farm strawberry SWMBO's favourite wine - we buy it buy the case for the summer, in the fall she switches to Bailey's.  Have you tried some of the Lohr reds at Costco?
  • GrateEggspectations said: What's a "fax machine"? Ah Grasshopper, it was a machine used to send pictures and you made the connection using a landline telephone without a keypad - you had to spin a numbered dial using the correct telephon…
  • Carolina Q said: If I had found it, I wouldn't have had a clue what it was.  You would not have cared if you had just dumped it into the egg, and then waved your noe over the top vent to test if the VOCs were gone.....Maybe a new trend, …
  • Mikee said: I soak wood chips or else the burn up in a few minutes. Chunks go in dry. That is why mixing the chips throughout the lump and lighting from the top in one spot, cooking with the lid down (low and slow) works best with dry …
  • Toxarch said: Sometimes. Old lump seems to light easier and spark less. So sometimes I do light the old lump, let it start going for a little while, then top off the lump, set the vents or hook up the Stoker and let it heat up. The downside is …
  • Son has pair of AMCO shears, designed for turkey so chicken is easy. I have a set from Lee Valley I use for chicken, the big chef knife comes out for turkey. 
  • Very nice, I like to use parchment, makes it so simple. Do you use a special flour? I'm sold on Silver Star from Costco..

  • Cookbook_Chip said: Freaky indeed!  So... what do Eggers consult on?   According to Mrs. Google, they are an employment Agency in Omaha, NE.

  • "When will the Lions of Hwange National Park be left to live out their years as wild born free lions should...?" Well a good start would be for someone to shoot Zimbabwe PH Richard Cooke!
  • When the going gets tough the tough get egging. That is a lot of water in that walkout, surely that didn't all fall directly into the walkout? Could it be be seeping/running back in though the sidewall? Damn, I'd roof that puppy in a hurry. 
  • @cookingdude555 - I think the new model is called the NANO, might be wrong on that. I'm surprised the "newer and smarter" units have less power than the old Pipes. 
  • @cookingdude555 Mine are the originals from BT, no WiFi.  Model is ASVPIPE 1.0 and 1.1 - will send a photo when I get home. The wattage is 1050W. 
  • caliking said: Consider the Joule from chefsteps. Compact design, wifi, and 1100W vs. the Anova's 800W. If you have a budget to stick to, then get the Anova. The wifi feature doesn't sound like it would make that much of a difference, but you…
  • While putting away my ASVPIPE1.2, made me think of your post and wondered if the BT has a fuse? Maybe it had just blown. Turns out it was a fuse, albeit a house breaker, but a fuse nonetheless.  Glad you are back in Trés Booblay land with a smile on…
  • It does, if you like it.  Have 6 seasons on disk, I go back and watch regularly, like Star Wars, you continually pick up links between episodes. Great series. Assume you mean the Dothraki.....

  • As a MBGE owner, not the best to ask, but I do like my Medium. It is a fuel miser compared to neighbour's LBGE for similar cooks. (Only one I've compared, I defer to @stlcharcoal as he has much more experience) Most of our cooks are for two of us an…
  • Welcome - I've been down the same road, bought MBGE about 5 or 6 years ago while being a gasser and kettle guy for the past 40 years. Still have two 22" kettles, one from '78, the other from '86. Small Smokey Joe Gold from local Home Depot clearance…
  • No direct experience with the ANOVA BT, but i do have two of the original ANOVA pipes, V1 and V2. If the BT is black when you try to power it and it has an IEC connector, might be worth a try to reset the connector at the unit. Old IT trick is to st…

  • Big fan of Beaver, the Cream version is a family favourite. Crazy Horse (out at the moment) is another we like. 
  • @1voyager - I like to inject pork butt. I use the same vinegar based sauce we usually use as a dip/pull sauce.  Have never used as much apple chunk, maybe 1 fist sized split into three and spread thru the lump, I also spritz with ACV to pull the smo…
  • Now that is a nice toy - kinda like X-Ray glasses......any nice neighbours around?
  • Yeah, but Mickey is old, not as old as me, but old, his wings a la carbon are the result of a nap, not adult beverage.  The arguement about using the DFMT vs bottom vent for temp control in an egg is easily answered - every time I bend over to adjus…
  • In my bar fridge, surrounded by beer, it takes four days for a USDA Prime from Costco. Maybe more, if you don't open the door so often looking for the beer....
  • My backyard....sometimes take it for granted. Wildfires In the central plateau are making life tough for many folks.  Enjoy your stay! EDIT - nice shot of that basalt peak, did you fly by Black Tusk?
  • What RRP says and as long as your firering sits on the top oK, cook on!
  • Glad to see things on the Rock are still good, have the Premiala gloves, similar to the Hellfire, you will like them. Best use is dumping a chimney of briquettes into the kettle for those old school nights.  Glad the hinge worked for you....
