  • Just checked and you guys are corect. Its Map/Pro not MAPP. But I guess that is what everyone is using on the little torches since they haven't made mapp in 5 years. Not very impressive. Would love to find an old bottle of mapp to see how it burne…
  • I'm weird. I actually like overdone chicken (175 ish).
  • Looks good. My first concrete project was last year when I did the counters for my outdoor kitchen. Tons of grinding and polishing. Way cheaper than granite. You can use regular concrete and add extra Portland and plasticizer. You will save a lot o…
  • Must have had a good bit of fat on them.
  • I have an 18" wsm and it will cook a ton of food. Should work great for camping. Reason I never got rid of mine.

  • Go tigers. Plan on doing the same. Working on my bbq area, cook some Q, have a drink and listen to some good baseball. Miggy has been on fire. 
  • You need to keep a defibrillator close by after eating that one. Looks like some good eats....
  • Walmart by me started carrying 17 lb bags of RO for 10 bucks. I have been using WG for a while. Much more dense, last longer but harder to get hot for pizzas and stuff. Got a bad bag of RO before.
  • I also like it that color and not burnt looking. Going to have to try that. I dont foil so I would just shake it on or something the last hour or so .
  • MrCookingNurse said: Easter seals is a charity for childhood and adult special needs. I'm assuming you pay to do stuff because the money goes to a good cause. http://www.eastersealsbham.org/ It's a great cause. :( I have a weddin…
  • I dont get it. Pay $60 - 100 bucks and bring your own food to cook just to give it away to people that you dont know and that paid someone 10 bucks to get it to the event(and the money doesn't go to you). Is their prize money or something? Getting…
  • Looks like a hunk of mild steel. Why not get it from the local supplier??
  • No im just mikeb9550. sorry... Thanks jerold.. I was originally looking at fire resistance when I read shingles can withstand 2 ours of burn time. But then I also ready that you can strip the roof with 1x4s instead of sheathing. That would be easi…
  • Thanks guys. Been working on it a couple hours each night. Taking me forever.  Cant wait until its done. No, I built the joists. I am cheap. jeroldharter, I plan on doing a ceiling fan but why the metal roof? Was thinking about going with regular…
  • With chicken i only like bbq. My favorite is sweet baby rays. My go to pizza is ck sbr bbq sauce and red onion on a 50/50 whole wheat/bread flour mix. Little mozzarella cheese and good to go.
  • Why would anyone with an egg do beer can chicken when you can do spatchcock???? Hello.... When you run out of beer and need to make an excuse for the wife because she is wondering were all the beer went. "I used it to cook with hun and i need t…
  • I haven't ran the water line yet but the plan is to run pex underground. Not to deep. Then hook it up to a manifold on the outdoor spicket. Point of use hot water tank will go under the sink. Just. Low the lines out in the winter. Good idea to make …
  • Thanks for the kinds words. Just a do it yourselfer. First time working with most of these materials like hardi, metal studs, concrete counters, stucco, and so on. Had an idea of what I wanted and laid it out. Hated not having counter space, no wher…
  • Thanks. Will post some more in a few days.
  • My egg is a couple months old and the band is already fading. For the price the egg cost, they could either powder coat or use por15 or other good paint.
  • I must be a wimp since I can't lift my large Into position. Had to put it together and back several times for fitting purposes for the outdoor cooking area I am working on. No problems when it's in sections. No problems with the bolts. They bend a l…
  • I love cooking in my Dutch ovens but do it outside with lid on and charcoal beads for heat source. Great for baking no kneed. Bread in.. Lodge is some good ci. I have a lot of it
  • I loved mine so much that I bought one for my camping trailer. Great for baking also.
  • On here, pretty much everyone will say XL. I went with the large because all my other grills were larger and never got filled. I cook for 3 but the other 2 arn't big meat eaters. I would say it depends on what your cooking needs are. If you don't ne…
  • Pizza will use more since you go hotter. More temp, more energy. takes about 4lb to fill the large. Last a long time for hamburgers and other quick cooks. One good pizza cook and its done (will pretty much anyways). A rib cook usually uses up about …
  • cortguitarman said: @mikeb9550 Any Snap-On tool dealer should be able to fix that torque wrench on his truck. I delt with Snap-On for 30 years when I was wrenching for a living. +1 on that. My dad has been a Snap-on dealer for 30 years. Sn…
  • For me it would depend on how much it cost to have someone cut it. If its cost more than I am willing to pay, I would give it a shot with a grinder with the correct blade. For example, I have a Snap on Torq Wrench that I got passed on to my from m…
  • What I do in situations like that is cook them as normal but don't sauce them until u take them off. Once the cool sauce them and wrap the in foil and refrigerate. Next day warm on low heat in the foil for a while just to get them temps up but not …
  • I use small can of tomato paste, small can of tomato sauce, touch of garlic powder , Italian seasoning, sweet basil, sugar or honey, little pepper, Kraft shaker parm cheese. Most just add to it taste good. Leave in fridge to let flavors blend.
  • I bought a large. I could have bought any but that was the size I wanted. Went from a 21" weber kettle that was always way to big for us (family of 3). I still have my Weber smoker and the kettle just in case we have a big BBQ. If I need more room, …
