  • I'm a big fan of the Table nest
  • Just be sure to check the package. If it says "Enhanced with a solution of blah blah blah" I try to avoid them.
  • 12 year old boy goes into a bar and says "Barmaid get me a whiskey". Barmaid says "You tryin' to get me in trouble?" The boy says "Maybe later b**ch, right now I want a whiskey" 
  • They changed it to 250 people. Wife and I got there about 10 am and spoke with everyone who was cooking. It was great fun to see what they were making and what ingredient they used from the orchard. I don't want to sound contrary but I see no proble…
  • I have found wire bristles on the grate even after brushing with a "good" grill brush. Now I use a Grill Wizard.
  • Haven't tried Raging River yet. Lately it's been Dizzy dust mixed half and half with Old Bay.
  • I have one that I leave up year round. Wife got it at a BGE dealer. It's about 5 feet by about 8 feet with a fabric canopy. It's been 2 winters now. I do knock the snow off every time it snows.

  • I made mine by welding a steel tube frame then painted it. then I made a stainless steel piece for the table nest to sit on and I made a stainless steel top. All stainless would have been cost prohibitive even though I have my own shop

  • 3 below yesterday. Made burgers for supper. 18 below zero right now. Hope it warms up a little before I put some wings on for the race this afternoon.
  • On my first few long slow cooks I had the same experience. I was using Royal Oak green bag from Menards. I thought it might be the ash plugging the air holes in the bottom grate. I got a big piece of wire to try and poke the holes clear through the …
  • I left the scales on so I knew I wasn't going to eat the skin so I did it with the skin on. I thought in case the skin were to stick to the grid I would still be ok. There was not even a hint of sticking, it came off perfectly clean.
  • A vertical rack.... Hmm... I like it. Now you've gotten my wheels turning. I think I can come up with something.
  •   ajridge35 said: Do you live in a somewhat secure neighborhood? Sure would hate for someone to swing by and wheel that thing off Thanks. Each night just before bed I wheel it back into the garage. It's still warm at that time but n…
