  • Re: Advice on buying a rick of wood.

    In Missouri it's illegal to advertise and sell firewood by anything else but a measurement of "cord".  A cord is 8x4x4 with the wood TIGHT stacked.  That's three rows of 16" cuts all parallel to each other.  You cannot sell it by the "rank" or "rick", which is also known as a "face cord" (which is 1/3 of a cord).

    You also cannot call it a "1/3 cord" if you crosshatch the, 3-across then stack 3-deep on top as there is plenty of air space.  Plus, a lot of the Craigslist guys will only stack it 2-deep to lower the tonnage, then claim it's for airflow if you say anything.

    Lot of scammers out there, keep a look out.

    So the digi is basically the same as the flameboss without wifi?  I guess I'll have to decide if wifi is that important. 

    DigiQ = 10 yrs old & no upgrading, tiny 3 character scrolling "calculator" type screen, fixed speed fan with manual damper.

    Flameboss 200Wifi = 1-2 year old & new firmware updates downloaded automatically, large backlit 32 character dot matrix screen, variable speed fan so no damper needed.  (BTW, the FB100 [same unit, no wifi] is same price as the DigiQ)

    If you want to log into my FB200 and play with it, just send me an email and I'll give you the info.

    Also, here's a good side-by-side review by Firecraft:  http://www.firecraft.com/bbq-guru-vs-flame-boss

    Yes, Firecraft and I are both dealers for FB, but that's for a reason.  We both used to sell for Guru, until Guru had to axe all of their dealers because they were getting their butts kicked by FB.  Cut hundreds of us long time dealers, so they could drop the price without losing their profit.......whatever, most of us had moved on anyway.  Nothing wrong with the DigiQ, just a much better option out there now for the same money (or the Wifi model for a little more.)
  • Re: Is it worth driving 1hr 45m for this?

    My dad has one identical to that......old hinges, black draft door, orange inside, etc.  It's over 20 years old and we cooked PLENTY of pizzas on it.  Never had a problem with clean burns either.

    Must be September in St. Louis!  With a BBQ comp every weekend, they'll sell a truckload of them.
