    The closest RW dealer is about an hour from me. I'm anxiously waiting to finish off my KJ lump and make the trip to buy Rockwood. I can't believe there isn't a Rockwood dealer in Bloomington, IN @stlcharcoal

    Never had one inquire....have them call, we'll hook them up.
  • Re: Here's a new way to light your lump!

    I've started charcoal using Lay's Potato chips before.  They burn like crazy.
  • Re: Stovepipe for lightning fast startup?

    Yeah, it's still on youtube.....saw it some time back. 

    Unless you welded a good insulated handle on it, I would be too worried about fumbling it or have it fall on someone/something.  BBQ Dragon is my upgrade for that, plus I can use it on my wood stove.
  • Re: OT - Paying Respects for the Fallen Dallas Police Officers.

    None of out of town news stations are reporting in any length that we had a police officer shot in the neck yesterday here in STL on a traffic stop.  Suspect has a long record and ambushed the police officer after he was pulled over.  Officer is still in critical condition.

    This happened only about 20 minutes from me, and in a very nice part of town.  I drove right by this spot just the day before before meeting with a new dealer we have just 200 yards down the road.  We also have a long time customer that is a officer with that department (10 yrs back when I was selling charcoal out of the back of my SUV.)  I texted him right away, and thankfully he wrote back so I didn't have to worry about him.

    I say all this not to take anything away from the Dallas shootings.  As a witness to all the Ferguson stuff two years ago, and now this in the nice suburbs, just gotta say, be aware of your surroundings.  Don't believe for a second that a white picket fence in suburbia is going to protect you from what is coming.  Every LEO I am still acquainted says look out, this is the new norm & coming to a neighborhood near you.
  • Re: Flameboss 200 Cook

    What kind of Wifi does the Flame Boss have?  802.11 N, B, AC ect...

    They don't mention the wifi standard the flame boss is using on the website?
    We haven't made a big deal about the WiFi standard because a Flame Boss 200 is a very low bandwidth device. It sends a small amount of data to our servers about once per second. The first units we shipped were G standard and the later devices are N. Again, because the bandwidth requirement is so low you will not notice any difference between the two.

    I'm probably running one of the oldest units out there (#21), over a crappy microwave antenna internet signal.  The only thing I notice on days where my internet is dragging, is that it may take a few seconds longer for me to change the temperature or another parameter.  This is me working from a computer on same connection, so it's not just a one-way deal......that action has to go back-and-forth several times from my computer to their server, back to my FB, back to their server, and then back to my computer.  Otherwise, if it's running good that day, or I'm using my phone's 4G to monitor, then it's only a second or so to do anything.
