  • Celtic Wolf,[p]I haven't been on the new forum in about 3 weeks. Too much trouble. I have to log in and then find the correct link to the forum. I like the log-in to post because it cuts down on trolls but the forum just isn't as simple as it sho…

  • BlueRidge,[p]I've done ABs Honey Brined Turkey 4 or 5 times. I have always gotten good results. I've even done a honey brine and then used the mad max butter and spices on the turkey and white wine gravy. Great combination.[p]If you every get a c…
  • Parrothead,[p]I have done the same recipe as Ksqrd. I highly recommend it. It got rave reviews.[p]John
  • YB,[p]Larry that was the first thought that went through my mind. [p]I was just too tired/lazy to do it. Had a good day out on the lake on the waverunner. :-)[p]John
  • fishlessman,[p]Not really complaining. The board has such a constantly evolving membership that it really doesn't matter.[p]What matters is that we make some awesome food :-)[p]John

  • thirdeye,[p]I got to say you are hurting my feelings since I gave fishlessman the recipe for the stuffed poblanos after I made them. Got them from Steve Raichlen's BBQU and since I love poblanos I just had to make them. [p]:-)[p]Sure miss my egg. …

  • McGuire,[p]Patience young Jedi. A pork butt can spend hours in the plateau somewhere around 160 internal. I did a pork shoulder this weekend. It spend almost 6 hours breaking through the plateau and then seemed to hit a second plateau around 185.…
  • Larry,[p]We may be through in June. Looks like we are moving to Warner Robins, GA. We are thinking of doing something crazy and buying a 107 year old home on 4 acres. Here are a few photos. I did find the local BGE dealer in Warner Robins :-)[p]…
  • Jay,[p]I got them at them at Apollo Beach Meats in Apollo Beach. They are closer than the Oakfield Market is to my house.[p]John
  • RRP,[p]Thanks. Those 4 are already one but I've got but I'll do that with the next. I usually buy my butts at Wally World but went to the butchers this morning. I don't think I'll go back to Wally World. These looked so good.[p]John
  • Larry McSass,[p]I did one that size several years ago. I tried to search the archives for the recipe but I can't find it. Cook indirect at about 350 until 160 internal. It won't taste what you think of as ham but will be good. Cut a diamond patt…
    in Fresh ham? Comment by JM3 April 2007
  • bbqdiva,[p] If there is still a lot left I just stir and relight. If it is looking a little low I stir, add some new and relight. [p]If I'm doing an all nighter or a super high temp I might clean all the old lump out and save it for a different t…
  • Nature Boy,[p]Let me tell you when us southern folk woke up to a 45-50 degree temp on Saturday morning it was almost painful. My poor 10 year old daughter was turning blue. It did warm up and turn out to be a beautiful day. Wish you could have b…
  • omba,[p]What do you mean no one ever served you the Kool-Aid. We had a five gallon jug of it sitting on the table. People were drinking it all day long.[p]John
  • AugustaEgger, If your in Augusta, GA not Augusta, ME get a hold of Larry Ward (YB) and ask if he'll let you take a look at his collection to help you decide.[p]John
  • eggaholic,[p]That is a Hammed Ham (I know redundant). He has a fresh ham that hasn't been brined. If you want to make a traditional ham there is a good walkthrough of the brining requirements and cook on the DP website. Fresh ham is a differentl…

  • stike,[p]This is the pepper mill Alton used to recommend on his website under gear for the kitchen. I wish he hadn't taken that part of his website down. It was really good.[p]John
