  • Its just over 7lbs and its kinda frozen on the top side of the package and pretty frozen on the bottom side. I have put it in a sink full of water in hopes that I can put it on by about 11. I wouldnt mind putting it on in the morning but since I hav…
  • EGGOMANIAC, I will try brushing them with EVOO before I put them on. Usually I marinate them or BBQ them towards the end. I will try just EVOO and some rub tonight and see what happens.
  • EGGOMANIAC, Thats what I usually cook them at between 350 and 400 and the skin never seems to get crisp its always soft. Do I need to use my plate setter?
  • mad max beyond eggdome,[p] I thought about using DP rub but want something more "elegant" for Easter!! I drizzled with EVOO then did some dry herbs (rosemary, thyme, fresh cracked pepper and kosher salt). The package says to cook 1hr 45min to 2hr 15…
  • Celtic Wolf,[p]Thanks, sounds and looks great!!! Only ONE problem....I REFUSE to go to the store and don't have any fresh herbs, plus I don't have the extra fat layer and all (Publix had them on sale $5.99/lb) so I grabbed a really good looking one.…
  • Ref1515, Tuna steak is great soy sauce with ground horseradish seared 1:15 each side at 750

  • JNK, We have a large and a mini. Gene brings the mini to work with him sometimes and we use it when we are cooking something small. We cook on the mini when we are cooking chops or something like that that will fit. We also like the fact that if we…
  • IMO I would go larger just in case! I hate buying something using it a few times then come to find out I need a bigger one for something else.
  • Beer-n-Eggs, We did a stuffed pork tenderloin the other day and it turned out AWESOME (as normal forgot to take pics). We found it on here one day. It consisted of a pork tenderloin, parm, spinach and pepper bruschetta. It was very simple. Cut open…
  • mikeb6109, I will give it a try tonight then and let you know how it turns out. I will only be using it to make 2 pizza's though one for us adult type and one for the kids well I should say one for the OLDEST child who is picky, the other 2 only ea…
  • mikeb6109, How much flour do you use or do you not measure? Do you make your dough by hand or in a mixer? Just trying to figure out the best way to make it, plan on using it either tonight or tomorrow. Thanks!
  • Metalhead, I use to live in Snellville and Wilkes will do you a great job with steaks. We ordered a whole hog a few times for pig roast and always had great results. I live in Canton now and the Butchers Block in woodStock is one of the best I've e…
  • Willie, I use a coffee can and it works great and already had one around.
  • alb, Fatman large and Little Boy for the Mini
  • Fred W., Lbge is more than enough we cooked a 22lbs turkey for Thanksgiving. What ever your wallet will allow. The X large seems a big unless you cook for a army on a regularly. Just my opinion
  • stanley, Just to add to the discussion we used parchment paper last night for a pizza. You can lay the dough out and transfer it to the peel very easily. you can bake the pizza on the stone with the paper under it . we cook at 550 done temp we are …
  • Newbs, I was using just my middle name but was trespassing on someone else onthe site. So I add my Local IBEW Union number on the end. Gene613
  • BrerRabbit, It takes about 10 mintues well worth the wait.
  • You can kinda see what I am talking about in this picture the can holder thing.

  • Thats how I do it or sit the drip pan on the setter with a little water in it. I have beer can chicken holder things that have 3 feet that you put the can in then put the chicken over. But either way will work.
  • Actually you cook on indirect heat for beer can chicken. The beer in the can stays in the can (most of it) doesn't really add flavor or anything like that just keeps it nice and moist. I usually use a drip pan just to make it easier getting it on an…
  • That would be them!!!
  • Wellen, Try the Parmasean (sp?) crusted cornish hens. Can't remember if they are on the nakedwhiz's site or this one but they are pretty darn good!!!
  • mollyshark, Not sure about the bacon either?!?!?!?! That's how it comes so thats how I am cooking it!! I think I will skip the high temp sear and just cook at reasonable temp for a few minutes per side. As for WELL DONE NO WAY you might as well giv…
  • Hank, Thanks, see all I have ever used is a medium and a large. The medium I only had about a month so really all I have used is a large so the MINI is COMPLETELY new!!
  • Hank, Thought about TREXing them. Is using the mini any different (besides size) from a large?
  • JohnF, Man if you only knew the deal my butcher shop has on these puppies!! They are awesome (not something you find in the grocery store) plus REASONABLY prices 4-8oz/$27.99. I mean these puppies you can cut with a fork like a hot knife through bu…
  • YB, You got to play with gas. Mapp gas with self lighting turbo tip. Who doesn't like playing with fire.
  • Erin Cooley, MAPP here too. It's quick and easy, just hit a few spots with it for about a minute each and your good to go.
  • I know when we did ours Thanksgiving we noticed that 1/2 bottle of wine on the bird wasn't enough (not sure why as thats what the recipe calls for) but we ended up adding water to the drippings in the pan during the cooking so that we could baste…
