  • What do you do for a living?

    The what do you drink thread is half the battle but lets give that thread a run for its money... What do you do that funds your eating and drinking hobbies?  I'll start:

  • Re: What do you do for a living?

    Well, well.  almost 13,000 views and 500 post later my thread is going strong.  I saw monte's Stl and had to comment since I was born and raised there.  Currently living in KC.  Heres to another I70 World Series.  If we can get past Baltimore, almost 30 years later I may be cheering for the other team this time :)
  • finally got another smoke ring

    If you look at my threads lately, you will see them all complaining about my inability to produce a smoke ring after being able to when I first got the egg.  Finally, after probably 6-8 cooks, I got a nice (albeit small) smoke ring on my brisket.  What I did:

    it was a hot humid day.  I used a water pan which I always do.

    tried to get as close to frozen as possible without being frozen.  brisket had ice crystals on it from the freezer when I put it on the egg.

    no oil with rub.  Just sprayed a little apple juice on to get the rub to stick.  Did not rub the rub either.  Just sprinkled it on.

    used hickory and oak, vs. pecan and cherry that I have always used with brisket in the past.

    cooked it low and slow for the most part, at least until I was well past 140 degrees.

    threw 3 charcoal briquettes on right before the meat.

    This had a good smoke ring and might have been one of the tastiest briskets I have ever made...

    This sport is like golf... just when you think you are going to hang it up, you hit that one beautiful drive down the center of the fairway :)

  • rock star pizza

    Man I love the BGE with pizza.  I had the hardest time for a long time but  I usually hit it just right every time now.  This is sausage, pepperoni, Canadian bacon, mushroom, cheese.

    500+ degrees for about 45 min to let pizza stone get up there as well.  did 2 pizzas.  First took about 7 min, this one about 11.

  • Re: pissed about superman

    Haha fair enough cazzy, Did not realize there was another superman before it and after CR.  That will teach me to post about something a bottle of wine in without doing a little homework... well probably not :)

    Now if there was not at least a "dedicated to the late Christopher Reeve" or something in the credits of the other one you mentioned... my point stands.
