  • Re: Kingsford 2 pack for $9.88

    I feel ya man. I bought 10 bags the last time it went on sale. My shed is now full of kingsford and royal oak. I use the briquettes for my side burner. LIke I told my buddy, it sucks buying a bag of charcoal for $10 when you know it was on sale for $5 a month ago...thus why I stock up every time it goes on sale.

    Dampener/air vent is rusted shut/immobilized. 

    Easy to fix.  Spray with some penetrating oil, let sit for a day or two and then hit it with a hammer.

    I'm a slob, so I would just clean it out and cook on it.  Start a big fire initially and get it really hot to 1) sterilize/clean everything and 2) get a good bed of coals.  Then when the temp comes down, throw some meat on it.

    This is what I would do too.  I'd be all over that thing using it!  Tending fire is fun.
  • Re: Tips for more smoke?

    What I have found recently that works well is this. Layer of lump roughly the same thickness as the wood chunks I am using. add3 wood chunks on top of that layer of lump. Add more lump to just barely cover those first wood chunks you just added, add 3 more chunks. In the end I do 3-4 "layers" like this for a total of about 9-12 wood chunks. Some might say even that is too much wood but I have found it to work well as really at the end ofa bout a 12 hour cook, only about half of those wood chunks actually burned cause the fire didn't find the other half of chunks. wtf is up with paragraphing on this site? Sorry for the lack of formatting, I did try to make paragraphs.

      Something about smoked BBQ, that makes the worst of times, just a little bit better.

    Add a beer in hand and life is just about perfect!

    I know SRF is pricey so excuse my ignorance here. Is that $199 for ONE rib eye steak 20-28 ounces?
    It's not a ribeye per say. It's a full steak of just that incredible tasting rim of a ribeye. It's an entire cap, and it's wagyu gold grade. But, the price is prohibitive. And you need to buy two (or at least that's what I would tell the wife) so it's only $179 each then!
    I gotcha but damn. Now I don't feel so bad buying the Whole foods 28 day rib eyes for $29/pound. I gotcha though on it being a slightly different cut. Someday maybe....
