  • I vote for a trailer too.  I'm a DIYer and have flipped one house with a 1998 4Runner + trailer.  Now I have a 2015 Outback + the same trailer. With the low height of the Outback, I rarely use the trailer, instead opting to throw must stuff on top (…
  • I've had my dome thermometer bend and I contributing it to cooking two pork buts on CGW's, adjustable rack (one on each rack).  It dome is so heavy, that you never really feel that the thermometer is hitting the food.  Now, I always make sure I posi…
  • Not the question you asked, but will plug your mind with more things to think about... positive, flush or negative reveal.  Over the past 5 or so years, it seems like a lot of folks are going with a reveal that shows 1/4 inch of the sink rim.  This …
  • My parents church (old german church) makes sauerkraut for their annual fundraiser.  Raw packed; it's the best kraut ever.  Sauteed kraut in butter is good... sauteed raw packed kraut in pork fat is out of this world.  Talk about good Ruebens.

  • Depending on how fancy... or not... your church is... you could easily do bratwurst with toppings such as grilled onions & mushrooms with some sauerkraut.  
  • Do a search on the JohnBridge's forum.  They're the eggers of tile/stone.
  • I'm with Ladeback69.  Pork butts are very forgiving.  I typically always do two 10lb buts at the same time (freezes well).  If I have about 15 hours set the egg around 225-250.  If I only have about 10 hours, I'll run around 275.  I use a swing rack…
  • HeavyG said: I think anybody looking at "The China Study" as a guide to "the way" should be sure to read the voluminous criticism of that book/study. I have.  At the end of the day you need to find the day to day diet that works for you a…
  • SkySaw said: Good research! August 15th, 2011. I started to read the China Study (Colin Campbell) that morning, and have been vegan (well, plant-based whole foods really) since lunch that day. The China Study stinks... saw Forks Over…
  • We did the new mattress thing 2 yrs ago.  Neither of us like the Tempers.  We ended up going with a iComfort from Serta.  Like RRP and others, make sure your frame has a center leg.  Also, with all the deep / thick mattresses, we have converted all …
  • Pull at 195, FTC for about an hour or whenever is convenient.  They'll stay warm (don't let them drop below 140) in the cooler wrapped in foil + towels for 4-6 hrs.  You can reheat in oven or crock pot, but you'll need several hrs.  Sometimes a litt…
  • Search ceramic pot feet and you'll see several options like this that might work.
  • .
  • Took a quick look, but didn't find any saved pics of bread in the egg pic.  Set up is basically plate sitter feet up, grid and a pizza stone either on the grid or elevated slightly off the gird.  Egg temp and time are basically whatever the recipe c…
  • Put the probe in now.  No issue. 
  • FTC times vary depending on initial temp, bone or no bone, # of foil wraps, # of blankets, etc.  I don't have any issues keeping it above 140 for 8 hrs (used towels fresh from dryer).  Depending who we're feeding, we've FTC until it reaches 140 (kee…
  • The food combo pic looks cool but it is confusing.  Best thing to do is figure out what works for your body and be honest with yourself.  EG if you feel like crap is it because you had 1 too many bourbons the night before or the drop of meat in y…
  • Are you doing this for health reasons or for animal rights?  For health reasons, we’ve cut back dramatically on meat.  Went from 15+servings / week to well under 5 week.  I’d say we feel the same, but blood work looks great and so does the scal…
  • Rutland fire starters from Tractor Supply.  Pack of 24 for $2 or 144 for $14.  Only available around here in the winter.

  • Looks awesome. If you have the space, which it looks like you do, I highly recommend building the lower cabinets of the fridge/sink wall out 1.5 or 3.5 inch (2x4 flat or on edge).  Three reasons: 1) allows stnd depth fridge to look counter depth (…
  • Oh and after it reached 160 internal temp it went into a cooler for 1 hr so the oven could be used for other things. Just before serving the pork was pulled and placed in a crock pot to stay warm during a Christmas Eve party.
  • I just did this two days ago with a 10# butt that was cooked a few days earlier and wrapped in foil. On the day of reheat, I added a little apple juice inside the foil, kept the button wrapped and placed it in a covered roasting pan. Heated in 375…
  • And details on the cook.  Only our 2nd and 3rd butt.  Cooked together at 275 until 200 internal.  Turned out great.  BBQ sauce was a version of the Homesick Texan's coffee chipotle sauce.  No comment on the undersized drip pan.
  • +1 on henapple.  Hey, what's the anise seed for?  Christmas cookies or a rub?
  • Thanks Jim.  Really, quite the write up and much appreciated.  Will need to digest this when I have a little more energy. 
  • +1 on the dough/crust, looks like an excellent nystyle crust.  
  • By the way nice recipe. Will give it a try.
