  • Thanks to all for the advice!  
  • Wait a sec, now I'm confused, @onedbguru & @nolaegghead... I am using a brine made with white wine vinegar (6% acidity), water, salt & sugar. Basically, I'm following the recipe this goofball has on YouTube, from Chef Steps https://www.yo…
  • There was about 3/4" left in the jar before the lid was put on.  However, your comment about the screw ring being too tight could be the problem.  I saw a post on another site where someone said they tightened down the ring more than just "finger ti…
  • @fishlessman Those look great!  I didn't want mush either, which is why I wanted to try it.  Let me ask this - when you put your jars in the bath, did you put them in there and let it ride for 2.5 hours or did you let them soak for 2.5 hours after y…
  • No I haven't even heard of lacto fermentation until you brought it up and I googled it.  I feel I'm maxing out my canning knowledge at the moment, but it does seem interesting.  I liked the part about how doing it preserves and/or increases vitamin …
  • theyolksonyou said: Jesus, what a bunch of words.  Dump that shît in and light it.  Cook something.  Holy hell.  I basically do the same.  When I get to the bottom of the bag where there is basically dust and fine parts, I put the bag as…
  • Funny you ask.  I just had to dig out my receipt for my LGBE to make a warranty claim.  I bought mine on June 21st, 2013 at about 2:30 in the afternoon.
  • I got 20% off my Roccbox back in January using the same method as @BUFFALOMOOSE and @Eggcelsior posted.  They wouldn't credit me the 20% difference until it was delivered and I had to call back with the coupon code I was trying to initially use (whi…
  • Welcome!  Have fun!  Also, make sure your thermo is calibrated.

  • My local pizzeria will roll out their pies as well, which makes it so nice for clean up.  The only drawback is that I can't get their pies to cook up the same as they're able to.  So I still sometimes do my own.  That's some nice looking 'zaa there!
  • I hope your mom get better soon, prayers for her fast recovery. Tonight is my daughter's junior prom, so my afternoon will be spent following her and my wife around while pictures are being taken.
  • I've done that.

  • I do this all the time with leftover brisket and have never had a problem.   I agree that pork tastes better after it has been vacuum sealed, but vacuum sealed brisket doesn't have that same taste as it does when it's been cooked that day.  But tha…
  • DMW said: Welcome to the asylum, freeze your wallet in a block of ice for your own safety. Totally agree with what @DMW said.  But before you put your wallet in the water, and the water in the freezer, you need to  - Get 2 Thermapens (1…

  • Never met him in person, but he chimed in on a post I made a few years ago... I had tried to cook a brisket in -5* weather, fire had gone out and my BGE lid had frozen shut.  He informed me that with my timeline the way it was, the brisket may have …
  • That is so awesome!  I would show this to my family but they'd probably leave me in search of you!!  Wow!!!!
  • I have a bag of that [email protected] around some where as my "In case of a lump emergency, feel ashamed and break open".  Otherwise, when I get to my last bag of Rockwood, I go online and place another order.  Just the possibility of having to use Cowboy Lump …

  • If you're worried about the pork getting dry, have some Dr. Pepper or Coke on hand, pour some in the pork to get it back moist and you should be good to go.  Don't use diet Dr. Pepper or Coke, though.   I do this when I make pork for a tailgate tha…
  • In the video, AB says that he uses pickling salt because it dissolves better in cold water.  
  • Depending upon the company delivering the laptop, the scumbags could request a change of address from your address and have it rerouted to another city.

  • My wife and I just spent a weekend there in late October. +1 on the Signature Room for drinks after a dinner.  Do your best to get a window seat. For one of our meals we went to Trattoria 10, for Italian.  If you go make sure to get the seared por…
  • I'm with @Tettletime - we've had a cleaning service come in our house every two weeks and clean for the last 15+ years, otherwise we'd be divorced.  It's not that we're messy or dirty, it's just that we both hate cleaning.  Bathrooms, especially. I…
  • You just opened up a bee hive, as well as your wallet.  This place will cause you to spend money you didn't even know you have. I'll go first - get a thermapen.  If that's not enough $$ to spend, then also get a Kick-Ash Basket and a Flame Boss or …
