  • I don't know much about allergies and what can cause them,  but I think the oils from some food will be left behind.  Completely stripping the seasoning is a PITA process and not one you want to have to do. It sounds like getting one of the 17 inch …
  • What about the Kingsford Competition that claim to be all wood? I think they changed the name to Kingsford Professional. https://www.kingsford.com/products/professional-charcoal/#hd0SCyHu5SbYkEzf.97
  • The FDA lowered the safe temperature for pork to 145 years ago. I think it was around 2010 actually, but many sites and charts still show 160.  https://www.pork.org/news/new-usda-guidelines-lower-pork-cooking-temperature/ My family still gets a li…
  • I haven't tried that one, but I like everything I have tried from Soy Vay.  I will definitely give this one a try as well. It sounds like it would be great on some wings. 
  • I have never done short ribs in sous vide, but I would think you may want to raise the temp a little so you render some more of the fat. I guess it depends on what "feel" you are going for. I have seen short ribs cooked like a steak. If you want the…
  • nolaegghead said: I have a KJ Jr and Acorn that are the same size.  Rarely use them.  Great for traveling tho. Those are mini-max size. Mini is 10" diameter. It is a wee little fellow. 
  • That is cool...but way to many moving parts to break considering it is a VW. I guarantee if it ever comea to the US it will be a money pit. 
  • I have had similar issues with it not wanting to turn on.  Replacing the batteries helped but it is still a little difficult to turn on.   I recently got the lavatools javalin pro for $38 and I really like it so far.  It will be my primary and the …
  • BEA-utiful plate of food.

  • lousubcap said: I have a lava tools instant read and also a thermapen.  Both are quick enough and accurate enough for me.  Gotta have a backup in stock... @lousubcap- exactly my reasoning. I have a certain $90ish thermometer and I get tw…
  • Welcome- and thanks for the offer. In for 1 Javelin pro.
  • I would guess that it won’t take as long as you might think because it is a long somewhat cylindrical shape. Once the length exceeds the diameter the additional cook time is mimimal. I would guestimate based on a 10 lb butt and say 15-18 hours at 26…
  • TEXASBGE2018 said: Why do I not buy this for a second? First off the guy is worth like 50 billion and I’m to believe that his backyard has a fence that looks like it was put up in 1975 and is about to fall over. Also his “backyard” is only 20 f…
  • They look excellent! 
  • These look nice but at $75 a piece...just sayin...$.22 each and ypu can stack them
  • I think it is a neat idea, but not a $150 for 2 pans neat idea.

  • Mine showed up about a week ago. So far they are good. I haven't really made anything great to test them out yet but they are good. Definitely worth the $8 shipped. Not sure I could ever justify $40ish shipped. 
  • SonVolt said: You're going to think I'm crazy but I have 3 24" monitors in front of me setup like a cockpit. I still maximize everything. Visual Studio in the center, SQL Server Management studio on the left and a Browser of some sort or Outloo…
  • Are you using one of the newer ultrawide (21:9) monitors or a 16:9?  Have you tried different browsers?  If it is an ultrawide then it may just look that way. I agree it starts to look a bit silly. At some point I would suspect they will improve th…
  • @Doc_Eggerton Allegro Hot and Spicy.  https://eggheadforum.com/discussion/1143628/hot-legs
  • Maybe chocolate bitters? 
  • Netflix and Amazon Prime both let you download to devices such as a tablet.  Netflix will also let you download on Windows 10 or Mac. I think Amazon is currently limited to Android/Fire tablet/iOS...so you can only download to a tablet or phone.  T…
  • Amazing!  What kind of burner is under the wok?
  • It looks pretty yuge.  Could you place a smaller lot inside to cook in?
  • I would go ahead and pull it, but I don't like to shred it super fine .Leave it a little chunky.  I think this helps to retain some moisture in the meat.

  • As far as faucets, I recently put in one of the commercial style and it is my favorite thing. This is the one I have: https://www.homedepot.com/p/KOHLER-Sous-Pro-Style-Single-Handle-Pull-Down-Sprayer-Kitchen-Faucet-in-Vibrant-Stainless-K-R10651-SD-…
  • Those look amazing. That is one of the better looking griddles I have seen for an oven. I am tempted to ask what brand, but I have a feeling you will tell me it came with a very expensive range that I will be too cheap to buy. 
  • Large and small egg both circa 2010. The gaskets both lasted about 3 cooks.
