  • Peanut shrimp

    I was searching for a recipe for some jumbo shrimp. I found this recipe and it's unbelievable and it only takes 10 minutes to cook... Heat cast iron skillet on BGE at 350 Put in: 1/4 cup peanut butter 1/4 soy sauce Until it softens Add: 1/4 white sugar 2 tablespoon of coconut or cooking oil 1 Tbsp of water. Let cook a 2 minutes and put shrimp in...Cover shrimp in sauce.. Close lid and cook three minutes.. Turn shrimp.. Close lid and cook four minutes.. Put over noodles or rice It's as good as any Pad Thai shrimp you will ever eat...Pure win regardless of how little effort, money or time it costs.

    I keep seeing threads about folks having trouble properly lighting their lump using paraffin based fire starters.  While there are lots of ways to do almost anything with the egg, some are easy, and some require much more effort.  Here would be my advice: Lose the fire starting cubes!!!  With a Map torch, there is never any question.  It works 100% of the time, and getting the lump burning takes only moments.  It is repeatable on every cook!!  Buying the torch at Amazon is @$40.  A bottle of map gas costs $10 and I just went thru my first one after 4 months of lighting @4 times a week.image

    You can substitute Propane and the cost goes down to about $3/bottle.  The torch has a long enuf handle that you can keep all your tender parts away from the fire.  It also has a second function - great for getting rid of weeds!  I'm sure we could start another thread on alternative uses.  Here's a link on Amazon - free shipping with Prime: .  You can be using it tomorrow.  I also have a Looflighter, that works very well, and others use less expensive heat guns.  But once you use the Weed Torch, those electric devices will be deeply entrenched in the bottom of your storage area.  There is no comparison. 


    This man speaks the truth..Once you go MAP you never go back. It cut my egg prep by a 1/3.
  • Re: Best place to buy CyberQ WiFi?

    I had a stoker and returned it... I've been in the networking field for close to twenty years and Stoker has the poorest of any interface (physical and GUI) I've ever used. I found out after hours of messing around with the Stoker and reading dozens of pages of complaints on line about it that the stoker is finicky. The stoker works great with some wireless access points and not others. After trying five access points I finally got the stoker up. The only access point I could get it up on was an ancient wireless hub which killed the functionality I originally purchased it for ..I emailed support many times to see if there was a firmware and never heard back...finally had to return it. When I got my cyberq it was up within five minutes and it's worked flawlessly ever since.
