  • Thanks guys!  This is kind of an experiment and dryness is a concern.  I normally take these brined chops and cook them in ghee with garlic and thyme and spoon bathe them as they cook.  We eat them medium rare. I think I'll coat them in Mangalitsa …
  • I've been thinking about getting a grid made that the center is solid and the grids are just the 2" on the perimeter.  The idea for me is to mimic a cast iron skillet while maintaining the oven principles of the egg.  Bonus:  essentially no clean up.
  • I actually think it's more desirable to have a large pan covering most of those 3 cut outs and more evenly distributing the heat around the edges on low and slow cooks.  You might have to open the vents a bit more if it's really restrictive, but I d…

  • I have the Javelin Pro and Themapen.  Love them both.  Thermoworks is the tried and true, but the JP is cheaper by a lot.  I wish I could say the Thermapen is worth the extra coin because they are clearly a great company.  But, I can't.  I've been c…
  • Killit_and_Grillit said: My brother in law gives me grief in the summer when I have one of these while grilling on a hot evening. Says it's for girls.  If I have to cash in my man card for a few summer shandys, that is a trade I will willingly…
  • For those of you using Ruhlman's cure ratios, did you find it overly salty?  And, if so, what did you do to adjust? I thought it was terribly salty, so I increased the sugar content.  Still pretty salty, so I soaked the belly in water for a bit aft…
  • SGH said: cssmd27 said: Are those also called or considered fractional distillation towers? No sir. "Columns" are what you are thinking about. A reactor starts a particular process. A fraction or distillation column is the end. As…
  • SGH said: RRP said: so it's a visual inspection or are you carrying some instruments with you? BTW what is that thing used for? It is used to break heavy hydrocarbons into lighter ones. Example; crude oil into gasoline and other…
  • I had a firebox crack a few years after purchase and tried to get it covered at the dealer who is only about 10 blocks from my house.  Initially given the run around and told I had to produce a receipt which I no longer could find.  I was able to fi…
  • Just chiming in, but I HATE the fact they blade tenderize prime cuts.  It's absurd.  I think the whole cuts are not.  But, IMO, this puts people at increased risk.  Prime tender cuts should be assumed to be cooked to rare (med rare at most). And, a…
  • DoubleEgger said: I'd be interested in what the 42% of all women who voted for Trump think about this march.  Probably have busy, productive schedules and no time for such.
  • HofstraJet said: @cssmd27 - Were you on the Squire's Board or on the Berserkers board? Good to know other wineauxs are here.  I was on both, but am just on the Berserkers now.  The other one went dead with the big split and I left for…
  • cheeaa said: Wow... whats the oldest they have Call him and ask.  He'll advise you.  He did some special ribeyes for some wine guys that are 60 days.  I still have 4 or 5 in my freezer.  Gotta be careful how you cook those as they transf…
  • I've been buying religiously from him for about 10 years.  Simply the best and sensational customer service!  I usually request my beef aged to 45-50 days from him.  He will custom cut pieces to order down to very specific details.  The man knows be…
  • theyolksonyou said: I disagree with the above. I tend to overshoot my desired temp with reverse sear, but I'm likely in the minority. I like to hot tub then sear or TRex.  You're kind of doing a reverse sear, just with a water bath to ac…
  • I would need to know a lot more about the grinder - namely particle distribution size over different grind settings.  Here's an example: http://www.home-barista.com/grinders/baratza-grinders-particle-distribution-at-various-settings-t16011.html In…
  • That's actually a GREAT price on the Japanese A-5.  I've been thrilled when I've been able to buy it for $100/lb.  I would consider it, but I have a decent amount in the freezer that I need to eat. (FWIW, you don't normally cook this meat anything …
  • stlcharcoal said: Got 300 of them a few weeks ago for $6.66 a piece direct from RTIC ($200 shipped for a case of 30.)  Killer deal. I think they had the powder coated camo ones on sale for $9.98 a piece on the website if you bought a case of 30…
  • Looks great! I did a test run a few years ago and had mixed results, but could see the potential and never followed through for a bunch of reasons that didn't have anything to do with it.  Parts were dry, but other parts were great. Assuming you s…
  • Photo Egg said: Gunnar said: Nice.....I know what to get on my next stop at Herbert's....... That's where I get mine!  Have about 10 lbs out in the freezer and this has inspired me to pull some out this weekend. FWIW, …
  • Not sure if the OP was just posting for fun as a play on the name or was upset.  I consider a rock here and there as no big deal with charcoal.  They don't do any harm and any weight is negligible. Sometimes I feel like these threads are a bit of "…
  • Looks great! How about brisket chili? Or, a batch done burnt ends style?
  • egret said: TN2TX said: The lid on my large won't stay open. I have to fully open, hold, and almost balance it to keep from closing on me. Has anyone else had this issue? I am assuming it has something to do with the hinge but I don't …

  • Thanks everyone.  Bought one and used it tonight.  I like it.  I think I might like it a lot, but I want some more cooks.  Cooked some 2", 60 day dry aged ribeyes which were excellent - as always. As for higher temps, I had to dial it back because …
  • How'd you like that Baylor/SMU game? I think there's about a 50% chance you see Chad Morris at Baylor next year.
  • Amicable divorces do happen.  Been there.  Filed it myself, but ex and I had agreed on everything before.  But, and it's a BIG BUT, we had no kids.  So, it was more like a long term dating relationship with assets and debt to split up. Whether you …
  • That looks awesome! But, I used to roast my own just on the grill with all the flipping, etc.  I finally did a taste test with the fresh roasted from outside, at the grocery store and couldn't tell the difference.  Ever since then, I just pay a few…
  • Lit said: I am guessing RTIC cup sales have been hit even worse than Yeti with the Walmart cups. People are either going all in and sticking with Yeti or the people that were looking for a deal before are going to Walmart.  Agree with th…

  • How long did they take at that temp?  And, what was your end point?  Tenderness or temp or both?
