  • Re: Sam's Club Zero Warranty Eggs

    @stlcharcoal -  "What if I put a "Limited Lifetime Warranty" on a bag of Rockwood?  Sounds like a great idea.  Read the fine print, you can't light it on fire.  LOL." That's pretty good.  =) 
  • Re: Can I make decent burnt ends by smoking a tri tip?

    Making burnt ends out of tri-tip is like using prime rib to make beef soup, both are very good, but not the best use of the cut you have available. Hot tub the tri-tip, no more than 130ºF and then power sear it, either with cast iron or directly over lava hot coals. Using a brisket rub or something like Montreal Steak Spice and some butter, slice it thin (across the grain of the two distinct muscles) and the burnt ends may have some real competition. 
  • Re: Pizza-plate setter

    Sure it works - the suggestion to go legs up is to get the flames to wrap the setter and save the gasket. With the setter in the legs down position the lump is so hot the flames will always be directed right at the gasket. 
  • Re: A few recent cooks

    You are teasing Raichlen aren’t you. Awesome. 
  • Re: What am I doing wrong

    An egg, MBGE/LMBE, will hold twice as much lump when filled to the top of the fire ring as it will when filled to the top of the fire box. You are filling to the top of the fire ring, right? 
    If your gasket is good, the bottom vent can be almost wide open if air flow is restricted by the DFMT. You will burn more, but not in the amounts you are talking. 
    Once your egg is burning, drop in the setter, the lump can be almost touching it, at 250º temps you should be good to go for 12 hours easy.
