  • I have used Texas Rubs and Pizzy Pig for years but have recently tried Malcom Reed's Killer Hog BBQ Rub for change of pace. Lots of paprika and cayenne.

  • I think Mickey has the answer. The feet (if you have them) will do the job. Mine is in an Egg Carten on top of a three level wire storage rack from Lowe's or Home Depot (can' remember). Been there for two years now. Any heat from the Mini bottom is …
  • Bought my Mini from Keith's ACE Hardware while at the Salado Eggfest two years ago. SpringramSpring, Te
  • I use one of those shelving units that you can buy at Lowe's or Home Depot. Mine is a 3 level one which places the Mini at the right height for me. The Mini's weight is no problem plus the shelf will allow heat from the bottom of the Mini to dissipa…
  • I have done the same thing many times on the Mini. Use DP Raging River as seasoning, however. The Mini is wonderful for us empty nesters. SpringramSpring, Texas

  • I am not going to admit that have put a little ketchup on a hot dog..I just am not going to admit it. Period. Maybe.... Springram Spring, Texas
  • I will say that to light up the LBGE to use my Baking Steel is a lot of charcoal for only a one minute +/- sea on each side of steaks.  Works great when cling several steaks. The Baking Steel at 550* + does a wonderful sear. I could not find anyone …
  • That really looks great. Bet it tasted great too! Springram Spring, Texas
  • pflug said: Do you still need to let the steaks sit after the sear? No. SpringramSpring, Texas

  • Really great look'n food. I bet it tasted great too. Springram Spring, Texas
  • @Zmokin - I agree about not getting the crust that I wanted. I tried using a pan since I was after a crust without the grill marks. The pan was just not hot enough. The sous vide cooker did its job. Always the next time...... Springram Spring, Texas…

  • For a brisket flat, the Travis Method is foolproof. And darn tasty, I might add. SpringramSpring, Texas
  • Ribs are a little like having babies......they are born around the world in hospitals, houses, tents, huts, so and so forth. Pain medicine or not, mothers have babies in all kind of conditions and situations. Guess what...most grow up to be adults, …
  • You got me there!  I have no personal knowledge of that. I do bake the original crust (not thin) with great results, however. I do have a ceramic deep crust pizza pan (BGE). I may try that one day directly on the Rig Extender to see if the lid will …
  • Not to be argumentative, but the creator of the AR says it works for him just great. 50/50? I will go with the inventor of the AR and my own experience.  Springram Spring,Texas
