  • I have a Stoker. It does an AWESOME job! It holds the temp better than my GE Profile oven does. It is a well made, industrial grade product that is powder coated. My only complaint is that the WiFi can be a bit flaky. It disconnects all the time. …
  • Thanks gdenby! I will let them go beyond 197* today and pull around 202-205* 
  • I normally only leave them in cooler for 2 hours, but I have no choice today. All my kids are in town and the movie starts at 430 and lets out at 630. Should be home around 645 and pull shortly thereafter. They are now at 190*. They will be at 197…
  • Snake River Farms is probably the best and most reliable I know of. Their Wagyu brisket is a flat $75 regardless of weight. (They guarantee it will be 11-14 lbs) http://store.snakeriverfarms.com/american-style-wagyu-kobe-beef/brisket-11lb-to-17lbs…
  • I got mine from Amazon. Make sure you get a Stainless Steel opener. Most wall mount openers will rust!
  • I use Moe Cason's (sp) injection. He's a BGE user and Grand Champion who's been on BBQ Pitmasters and won and had a narrow 0.6 point loss to 2010 World Champion Melissa Cookston last night. His is Coca-Cola, Jerk Seasoning Paste and what he calls …
  • I feel bad about being one of the original posters of my custom table back in February. Mine took three weeks and I posted pics and how great his prices were and how smooth things went. He was a one man shop and the quality of my table is impeccable…
  • I hope things work out too! I bought based on all the positive recommendations here and after talking to him was fully convinced. Brian was very responsive to me and I hope his suppliers get him restocked so he can keep putting out EXTREMELY high …
  • BRush00 With the "Standard" bar stock I get about 5-5 1/2 inches between the main grate and the bottom of the top grate.(that's with the grate lowered to the point that the bar hits the platesetter) The chicken and ribs one I've never tried bu…
  • @ TMackie - can you list the pros and cons of the adjustable rig.  I am considering get the adjustable rig w/ the slideable arms and would love to hear some other peoples thoughts on this.  I like this one because you can adjust the cooking height a…
  • Wow! That ticks me off if one I ordered a couple months ago doesn't clear and one from a year ago does. I need to ask Franco what's up! Here are some pics confirming the issue A look down the hole with the top grate removed And another s…
  • I received mine less than 90 days ago and here's a picture It's several inches in and its definitely an issue. I'll take a pic and post shortly
  • The CGW Swing Rack is a great product and I highly recommend it, but if you get one I also recommend the Spider and 13" stone from Tom at CGS I plan on doing video reviews of both in the coming week and will post here when complete. …
  • I am in a unique position as I own BOTH the Swing Rack and Adjustable Rig R&B Combo with extender and slide guide. I like both of them very much and both have their advantages. Since you asked specifically about the CGW Swing Rack I will focus…
  • I do all my chicken (spatchcock, bs breast, bone in breasts, leg/thigh quarters, wings) raised direct on the top level of my adjustable rig from Tom at ceramicgrillstore.com I usually shoot for 375* dome and it yields wonderful results! For stuffe…
  • I moved the probe to grate level and when set to hold 235* the dome temp reads 270* (my BGE thermometer is calibrated). It's a good point though because in my old offset smoker, you didn't have the large difference in the chamber you have in a BGE…
  • The rib rack was part of an el cheapo roasting pan combo from Wal-Mart. I think it was less than $20 for the whole rig (large roasting pan & rack)
  • OK, guys.  You cost me money.  Bought the Play:3 today and got the free bridge.  After much ado, I have the play unit in another room from the router and bridge.  My biggest problem is that only about half of my songs from iTunes ported over to Sono…
  • Airport Express is  a great device, (I have one) but let me suggest another route. The Sonos systems are UNREAL!!! I have a couple of Sonos Play 3's and use the free controller app for the iPad/iPhone. Sound is AMAZING and it connects to everythin…
  • My guess, 3 hours. OK. My buddy cooked a 7 lb PR a couple weeks ago on his egg and he said it took in the 3-3.5 hr range. So I would guess then that the size of the roast really doesn't matter.
  • I'm a geek on most things electronic but I never did a smart phone. My company is buying me a phone/ data package thru T-Mobile and I need to pick a phone. What will work with my Stokers? Thanks I have a new WiFi Stoker and use it with my iPhone …
  • Looks awesome! You need to have a get together at your place for all of us within driving distance 
  • $25 / 20 lb bag at one local dealer and $27.99 at the other. I started buying Humphrey online and pay $37 shipped to my door for 40 lbs. and it's great stuff! Low ash, big pieces. Every bit as good or better than BGE brand.
  • Just remove the IMG tag and the link to photobucket will work 
  • I did my first brisket at 235* grate using my Stoker yesterday and it turned out great - the dome read 250*-260* most of the cook.
  • Pics from the finished brisket tonight. It was excellent! Pulled apart nicely but was firm, and even the flat was pretty juicy. Flat carved up: Point diced up for burnt ends: Sauced up & Ready Plated up with asparagus and swe…
  • The full setup for a BGE is $350 shipped. Got mine 3 weeks ago right after they came out with the WiFi firmware Village Idiot - thanks! I hope it comes out juicy. If not I'll just have to keep practicing!
  • Just pulled it off at 2:30P at 192* after 15hrs:15min at 235* More pics at dinner tonight when it's carved up!
  • It keeps trickling along on me. Not passing the fork test yet. It's at 190*, I'm sure it will be off soon, and pics will follow!
  • Thanks for the comments everyone! I almost waited for the new "Wifi enabled" DigiQ but my wife was clamoring for Pulled Pork and Briskets, and not having to get up every couple hours during the night for the hundreds of cooks I'll use this for was w…
