    Lockhart has been less than its usual stellar self lately. Take I-10 west to the Buc-ee's exit. After picking up a bag of Beaver Nuggets, hit Luling City Market and then head up 183 to Austin.
    +1 on City Market and +1 on Buc-ee's. 

    Buc-ee's is a truck stop wet dream.  Think of it as a Love's on steroids.  They have some great beef jerky!  They also have the cleanest bathrooms of any pit stop you can find.
  • Re: Grate Racks

    I have no idea what these look like, but the Google image search on "Grate Racks" is verrryy intriguing.  

    I take it that you don't want any children in the room when you do that search?
  • Re: Companion for an XL, what size?

    It depends on what you what to do with it.

    If you want it as a companion for larger cooks, then a large might be the ticket.  if you want something for a everyday quick cook then a small or medium might be a better option.

    I notice that a common theme is a lot of two egg families skip a size for the second egg. I have seen a lot of XL/MED or LG/SM combos.

    I myself have the LG/SM combo.  During the week we cook on the small.  When we have company or cook a brisket / butt we use the large.

    Small Clean Burn Report

    This test was anecdotal.  In other words, YMMV.

    I did a clean burn in my small today and noted the temp every five minutes.  I started out with the egg completely cleaned out.  I used new GFS lump made by RO and filled the egg to the top of the firebox.  The bottom vent was wide open (screen too) and the DW was off.  I lit the lump in two places and the dome remained closed for the entire test. 5 minutes - 150     10 minutes - 280     15 minutes - 420     20 minutes - 510 25 minutes - 590     30 minutes - 660     35 minutes - 680     40 minutes - 680 45 minutes - 710     50 minutes - 700     55 minutes - 740     60 minutes - 710 65 minutes - 700     70 minutes - 680     75 minutes - 650     80 minutes - 640 85 minutes - 610     90 minutes - 580     95 minutes - 550     100 minutes - 510 105 minutes - 480     End of Test As suspected, whatever I had for a gasket got toasted during the burn.  The bad smoke cleared after 15 minutes and it appears I could have had over an hour cooking pizza.
    I hope you had plenty of beer while watching that burn... and a spare gasket waiting in the wings.  Having said that, I just love it when someone goes the extra mile in the name of BBQ science!
