  • Re: Which Thermometer?

    It depends. For long cooks the thermometers usually equal out. Most people will use dome temps when sharing cooks on the forum unless specified using Grate temp.

    The MM rules,. I love ours. Love it. Wait until you take it tailgating. You will have no idea how many new friends you will make!!!
    Ron, look at the hinges. That's an actual Mini. That's pretty cool how everything is to scale to make it look bigger than what it is. 

    Looks like good times @smokesniffer

    I think really, why does my fire ring look so silly and not fit the mini max like every other product line fire ring? Cutting corners that I notice 6months post ownership.

    I'm over it, but that was my thoughts when I first put it together. Some stuff in life is worth overlooking.   
  • Re: Minimax question

    If I were starting out buying new eggs again, I'd still pick my same setup of a LBGE and MM. I can't say I have experience comparing various/multiple BGE's, but my MM complements my large nicely. I cook for two 95% of the time and use the MM about 70% of the time. I like the portability of it, but mostly like the rapid heat up time and the minimal use of lump. When I'm talking about rapid heat up time, I mean throughly heated not just a hot fire. Even when cooking burgers, I like cooking with a hot dome. As mentioned above, go with the woo/stone combo vs plate setter. 
  • Re: Caveman steaks

    I usually start when the dome hits 500°, but after that the dome temp is useless because the lid is open and closed frequently. One trick is to make sure the steak is set on the coals so it has a minimal amount of oxygen beneath it. Reduce oxygen prevents flare ups.
