  • Re: Biggest failure so far...

    They are called Ekogrips.  (  They get great reviews.   But they didn't do diddly poo to stop the heat from hitting my hands...and fast. The thing about the silicone is it heats up itself.  So, I was still screaming after putting down the ceramic platesetter because the gloves were hot as hell on my hands.  It felt like they were melting to my skin.  Maybe I just got a lemon.   There are over 1000 positive reviews on Amazon.   But my red hands tell me I won't trust them again.

    @Ozzie_Isaac :    Luckily, I had the plate setter wrapped in foil to prevent drippings and bad smoke.   So,  the foil stuck to the plastic and the ceramic came right out with no problem.   Got pretty lucky there.

    Why?! Apparently, you've never a a steak at a perfect 144.6 degrees. So much juicier than 145. B-) Sorry, OP....not trying to pile on.
  • Re: Brisket knives? What's your preference

    Damn....shouldn't have opened this discussion. 3 minutes of reading and I ordered the Dexter sani-safe myself. [-(
  • Re: Adjustable Rig Confusion

    After multiple posts, over a year of waffling, and bothering Tom a few times, my order is in. AR R&B Combo, rig extender and add'l oval grid. Almost $300 with shipping, but now there is absolutely no need for a 2nd Egg for me. Can't wait to try out a large batch of wings and ribs on this thing.
