  • @tarheelmatt Dam that sucks dinner guests backed out. You interested in seeing the Nations Capitol for dinner? Load it all up and I'll give you directions to the firehouse. I'm sure every one here would love all your hard work.
  • @tarheelmatt‌ how long has it been 160? Your right at the stall and could actually see the temp drop a few degrees before it goes up. What temp are you cooking at? I still think your more than a few hours away from it getting done. I FTC a small b…
  • Put it on now and you should be able to eat it tomorrow night.
  • I would say start now to give yourself some wiggle room. I have only done 3 or 4 briskets but they have all been around 12-13lbs and the times have varied greatly. From 10.5 hours to 17 hours. So I say start now and if it finishes early FTC till it …
  • Forgot to take an after pic but they turned out great. Can't wait to make them again next time higher in the dome. Tapioca starch worked out great. After the wing were done we decided to cook a small cake in the egg and the wife added blue coloring …

  • Wings are on not up in the dome like I wanted but we will see. My rack to raise them up had a bunch of rust on it and I did not have time to clean it up. Also I ended up using the tapioca starch I'll let u know how they turn out.

  • When installing the rutland gasket does it only go on the bottom? I am needing to replace mine as it burned off during the last clean burn. Also it cracked my fire ring. Called yesterday to get a replacement.
  • Here is a pic of them sliced. They were good but a little tuff on the outside. That was my fault as I thought it had stabilized at 350 so I went to the garden to get veggies. When I came back 20 min later we were close to 600. Oh well next time I'll…

  • Beef ribs are off.
  • Cut the handle off to make it fit in a large.
  • The meat teepee just went on. Have the egg up to 350 now it just a waiting game. Oh well off to the garden to pick green beans for dinner also.
  • Glad this is not my yard. I do not like snakes. GOOD LUCK
  • My brother caught a snakehead about two months ago and asked me if I wanted a piece. I said sure why not and tossed it in the freezer. He cooked his and told me he liked it more the rockfish (or if ur not from the mid Atlantic striped bass). My thou…

  • Here is a pic of the smoker.
  • Fellas that's my biggest concern, I want to make sure what ever I pick out that they can be calibrated. I was looking through amazon but a lot don't say if they can be re-calibrated. I will keep the hunt up. @SGH‌ I looked at the pit maker web site…
  • Thanks I will look the up. Are the adjustable or able to be re-calibrated?
  • I was looking for anyone who may have used their thermometer on a large smoker. I was actually going to their website right after I started the post but I got sidetracked. On the way there now.
  • If you have a smart phone there is a weber grill app that has some good rub recipes on it. I have taken their base and added a few things to make some great rubs. Look at the beef rub and the type a rub. I got the app free one day through a link som…

  • I also saw the post was deleated. It was for a fire box and a fire ring that had small cracks. That had been replaced by BGE and this person did not want to throw them in the trash. Me on the other had I would have used them till the desinigrated. O…
  • Anyone get these?
  • Vitamix all the way!!!! My wife wanted one and my responce was your crazy if you thing I'm going to spend $500 on a blender when we have one that works and a new one in the box still. After a while I gave in, we used some bed bath and beyond gift c…
  • I don't think I need to replace the thermo. But I will re calibrate it as it had been a min since I checked it.
    in What to do? Comment by Firemanyz June 10
  • @tulocay‌ I just opened everything up and let her rip. The thermo was wrapped around to 250. So my best guess would be around 1100 degrees or so. I let it burn until it went out on is own. It was up around that temp for about an hour or so. That w…

  • @Jaymet73‌ are they reg flies or sheep flies. I have sheep flies and they are some mean jokers right now. I have found a brimmed hat keeps they out of your face. But they will stil bite other areas. Good luck
  • Thanks for the info, I have tooooo many projects right now to take on another. I just thought some of the folks from the western shore might be interested. But you insight was very helpful and if some one goes and gets it they now have a contact for…
  • One word YUM.
  • Did anybody go check this out? I had way too much to do today to go for a ride.
  • As you stated above your biggest hurdle is the fact that you are not on the loan. You will have to refinance to get the loan out of her name and into yours. If you go the route of renting from her MAKE SURE that there is something in the divorce agr…
