  • Re: Stuffed Pork Tenderloin FAIL

    I have never stuffed a loin, but every time I cook a whole loin they are bland. I started having mine cut into 1 inch slices and cooking them that way. 

    I put salt, pepper and rub on both sides of each slice. It is a lot more work than cooking an entire loin,  but I get better results. 

    @TCT yours looks good. I am sorry it didn't turn out.

  • Re: Republican or Democrat?

    I am so tired I have been working 27/6!!!!!!! Wait that doesn't sound right. It is sad and funny all at the same time.

    I left one bbq site because of political crap and this will be my second, good bye
    Are you serious? You would leave an entire forum dedicated to a hobby that you love all because YOU clicked on a thread that YOU knew would be political and didn't like what you read. 

    This is a BBQ forum but the two most off limits topics, politics and religion, do come up from time to time because we are humans and that is part of life. I certainly don't agree with every comment I saw here, but I am not leaving because of it. 

    My suggestion for you is to stay and just avoid threads that you know will piss you off.

  • Re: Do ya really "need" a Thermapen?

    I also bought the bge one first. It worked, but it took 10 seconds to give an accurate read. I love my thermapen, and my cooks have improved greatly.

  • First cook with Rockwood

    I cooked for the first time using Rockwood. Chicken on Saturday and ribeyes on Sunday. 

    I am impressed. I have never used anything but BGE lump. I noticed the absence of the white smoke that I was used to when letting the BGE lump get to temp. I also noticed that I never smelled the chemical smell that I did when I used BGE lump. 

    It got to temp fast and, it seemed to burn more evenly than BGE brand. I did use more than I do when I cook with BGE lump, but I attribute that to the fact that it burned more evenly. 

    Overall I am very satisfied. I plan to order at least one pallet soon.
