  • Re: Buying an LBGE in the next few days. Need advice

    Is that a metal cap on the lid? My only suggestion is to get an ash tool (should come with it at that price) from the dealer and a High-Que grate by mail. I would skip the cover. I bought one and never use it, but it will protect the table.

    The next accessory I would get is a Maverick. I find it indispensable for low and slow. Finally, a Thermopen. You can limp along with a lesser thermometer until you spring for this one. 
  • Re: Inconsistent results with ribs

    I like BB because they are less fatty. I've tried virtually all the methods but hate the fuss of foiling. I've settled on three hours at 325 dome and they come out great every time. I get my meat from a butcher, so maybe your issue is tied to quality.
  • Re: Do you guys brine a Turkey breast?

    I also do a dry brine when fridge space is tight: 1T kosher salt per 5 lbs. of turkey rubbed under the skin. Rest for 48 hours.

    For a great backup of your data, check out DropBox. You can access the data from any device that goes on the internet. I keep all my data, music and photo files on there. If I'm at a store and decide last minute that I want to make a recipe, I can pull it up on my phone. I've also shared my recipe folder with my sister and a friend. Occasionally I create folders to share with clients. Because DropBox is a cloud app, you're protected during catastrophes at home, heaven forbid. 

    I use Time Machine, too. (I'm a consultant who works from home, so I'm super vigilant about backing up. Just the thought of losing all my files makes me anxious.) With Time Machine, I could restore my entire system, not just the data, music and photos.
