  • Doh! I live near you @bjeans and woulda bought this!  Darn.  Missed opportunity, but glad to hear you found a buyer.
  • I may have done the same thing.  If I didn't know that bit @Theophan mentioned... I figure a hard extended boil kills just about everything.  Heck, Bear Brylls is still alive!
  • Oy! A Memorial Day Party has come and gone and I forgot to make this again!
  • I just read it for the beer, and now I want a Yellow Rose Smash IPA! 
  • That's awesome!  Glad you tried it. It's also a nice reminder for me because I had forgotten about this recipe.   I made ribs this year, but will make the Mojo again for the next event.
  • GrillSgt said: I like your approach. And your double rub. I kind of like Pineapple Head and I kind of don't, but I will definitely give it a roll on ribs. Probably add a little more heat. Thanks for the post. Thanks!  This is my 2nd tim…
  • JohnH12 said: Looks great. How do you put them on the rack? Which side goes up.. The big bone? Good questions... My intent was to put the fat end in the back and the thick part on top...  and I tried to do that, but in the end I was bui…
  • jlsm said: These long cooking times for BBs mystify me. They aren’t dry? I tried turbo but ended up with 2.5 hours at 275. Great every time.  I'm going to make ribs tomorrow.  Will try to cram 6 racks on my large.  I think I've done it b…
  • I also had very positive results with Flame Boss customer service. Within a year of ownership (I'm not sure how long the warranty is for) I had some issues and they sent me new parts without question. On top of that, it has to be the easiest contr…
  • All you guys and your blackstones... ...you make me want to build a bigger patio so I can get one! 
  • GrillSgt said: You can go online and order RW from Ace and have it shipped to your store. 1 bag if you want. There was a good sale earlier this year, could buy 4 for $20 each.  They don't have any sales going, just MSRP, but that free sh…
  • Great tips, thanks! I did check a local Ace Hardware during lunch (they came up on a "grill store" google search) but all they stock is Cowboy.  I'll check out the deliver-to-store option that @GrillSgt mentioned. If I can get RW delivered for $20 …
  • Okay.  Thanks for the advice.  Here are the results. Ribs were very tender with good flavor.  I didn't have a deep red smoke ring, but they were very smoky.  I put in 3 chunks of cherry, which was what I had, but may go with a milder wood next t…
  • Photo Egg said: KiterTodd said: oh, scratch that.  The mickey method calls for no wrapping.  Step saved... Baby Back Turbo Ribs (No flip) 350 indirect for 1hr 40 min.  Before cooking: Pull membrane , rub, mustard, rub. Put on at …
  • oh, scratch that.  The mickey method calls for no wrapping.  Step saved... Baby Back Turbo Ribs (No flip) 350 indirect for 1hr 40 min.  Before cooking: Pull membrane , rub, mustard, rub. Put on at 350 and leave the hell alone for about that ti…
  • Yes, they are cryo packed.  I'll start running those bad boys under water... There are a lot of Turbo variations. First one I found said indirect at 350 for 1:15, wrapped for an hour, unwrapped for another 15 to finish. I'm open to suggestions. …
  • Wanasmoke said: ...It’s not for the calorie counters!  Basically made a compound butter with basil and minced garlic, a little salt and pepper. Heated the butter in a saucepan gently then added a little cream. Thickened with a tablespoon of c…
  • fishlessman said: never tested this myself, but with briquettes you wait til its all burning white and you can still taste it a little, with lump you dont light everything so there would be all sorts of petroleum product residue thats not burnt…
  • I use mostly RO because it is affordable and easily attainable.  I also don't mind how much I use or how often I do a clean burn after dinner... ...however, I've noticed the pieces getting smaller.  A lot more dust and tiny broken pieces than there…
  • Also a fun cook.  Thanks for sharing yours. Our Cinco De Mayo cooks was over a campfire this year. We did Skirt steak and Chicken, fajita style...
  • That looks great!  I also cook sea scallops on the EGG with CI.  They come out great. Can you post the recipe for that basil garlic cream sauce you have?  That looks delicious.   I made some last week as it's one of my wife's favorite. I don't pu…
  • Cook looks great! Close up pictures of half cooked chicken thighs look like dog vomit though.  Please flip chicken and retake picture. 
  • I think your lower stone setup is restricting too much airflow.   I also use two stones ...I use the plate setter as my lower stone usually, grate on top of that, pizza stone on the grate.  For me, 550 has been my sweet spot, give or take.  My thi…

  • I have this Sony Bravia 65" in the home theater that I really like.  Beautiful screen.  Bought it 9 years ago when HD was all the rave, 3D was about to hit, and 4K was just a rumor.  TV still looks great, works flawlessly, but I can't watch UHD on i…
  • I always liked his show.  Particularly when it focused more on true diners, drive-ins and dives.  It would lead you to some nice hole in the walls you would not have otherwise gone to.  Now it tends to be a lot more high end fusion restaurants.  Sti…
  • Darn.  Was hoping this post was a reminder about another RTIC cooler sale...  because I drug my feet on the last one.  :(

  • Did I miss it? Did @SGH post pictures yet of the first epic cook?!? I can smell it cooking, but I can't imagine what size crowd he is cooking for.  A thing that size can tax even an SGH size appetite! 
  • @Grif, what kind of setup do you have on the left side of your new KK?  I can't tell if that is an island, storage rack, or some kind of grill.  Looks neat whatever it is.
