  • Re: Bone in Ribeye Roast cook

    Did a nice 6 lb. bone in ribeye roast yesterday. Prepped with Worcester sauce and Milwaukee Avenue Steak Rub from the Spice House in Geneva, IL. Cooked indirect @ 225 degrees for about 3 1/2 hrs (115 internal), rested, seared, direct with a raised grid @ 550 degrees for 90 seconds each side, rested the meat while I put on peppers and asparagus. I put beef broth, garlic and rosemary in the drip pan for my au jus. Served with Beef House rolls and jams. For dessert, a homemade Turtle cheesecake.  
    Did the Mrs. eat her piece? It looks as big as she is. LOL

    Spare turbo ribs - 280 for about 2 hours and then add a brown sugar glaze and continue for another 30 minutes  Let rest for about 10-15 minutes.  No foiling.
    280* is turbo? I like cooking at 275 and my ribs would be rubber in 2.5hrs. All listed times should be used as a baseline. All meat is different.

    Wow, that's a lot of a**. Lol
  • Re: Cut Washers behind rear hinge?

    The key for me when adjusting the XL is to remove the spring and bracket (you  can loosen the spring bracket and take the spring off the upper band and allow the spring to hang from the lower band) on the upper band assembly and completely loosen the upper and lower band bolts. This allows the dome to rest freely on top of the base. (I personally remove the entire dome) .

    Once you have done this, move/position the lower band about 1/8 - 3/16" of space between the rim of the base and the band.  and secure the lower band bolt to the base. Place the dome back on the base (the upper band shouldnt have been removed, just left open and resting on lower base). Make sure you push the dome forward and its even with the base. Place and secure the upper band on the dome with about 1/8 - 3/16" of space between the rim of the dome and the band. 

    Before you open the dome all the way, open only a few inches and lower to make sure the dome doesnt slip back into the underbite. If it is secure, open the dome and rest in open position. You can now replace the spring assist bracket and hopefully your underbite has been resolved. 

    I hope i captured everything for you. If not, ask questions. This method works for me and my egg and I didnt have to go and buy anything. The key is removing the pressure points from the band so you can re-adjust. If need be I can take a picture of my band placement when I get home from work this evening.
