  • I have the complete opposite problem, but I am surprised that you are having heat issues and that you got the advice you did from your "appliance friend." Newer refrigerators are still generally well insulated and, with proper seals, the motor shou…
  • Well I bought the thing, so I might as well cook it!  I'm thinking about using the Travis Method for this 10.5lb Bottom Round Flat.  If it's lean like Griffin says, I figure the braising aspect of the "Method" will help.  Anyone disagree?  Any gue…
  • I second (or third or fourth) the spatchcock advice.  Did a spatchcock turkey last year for TGiving while my skeptical father did his traditional oven roasted bird.  It wasn't even a close competition.  Side by side during carving my turkey was flow…
  • NDG said: Nevermind - looks like restaurant depot needs TAX ID or EXEMPT # and my company is just me.  I am a business owner, but my LLC has no employees.  Am I  correct to assume that I can not join then?  They just want to know on yo…
  • Hit a solid stall around 170 not long after I started this thread.  Problem is that it's 12.5 hours in and temp is 195-200 throughout.  Probing like butter everywhere but the thickest, centermost flat.  I can maybe push it another hour, but think th…
  • QDude, I so did not want to hear that.

  • beteez said: If they do not want to spring for the egg the Chargriller Acorn seems popular on other forums with capabilities similar to the egg.  I second this.  If you/they are comfortable with the Kamado-style smokers, this is a respectible …

  • A big thank you for the Restaurant Depot suggestions.  Made my first visit today and obtained free membership.  That place is incredible.  I found myself walking aisle after aisle thinking about everything I wanted to buy.  And the briskets, oh the …
  • Thanks so much for the great responses, many of which are ideas that I had not previously considered.  Some places are just too far and/or inconvenient, but Reading Terminal Market is not too far from my office and I called and they confirmed that t…
  • Dizzy Pig's customer service is top notch.  They used to run a promo that offered free shipping with an order of the sampler.  They might extend you that courtesy if you called up and said that the shipping cost was the reason you couldn't try their…
  • Quick hijack - how do you go about seasoning fresh wood?  My parents just had a pear tree taken down and they saved a number of whole logs at my request.
  • Thanks for the great replies.  This is a truly special online community and I thank you for your kind words, recipes, advice, etc.  My wife thanks you too, as I have begun taking on more cooking responsibilities.  I'm thinking that a BGE will find i…
  • Watch out.  There appears to be some type of vortex in your backyard.  Those circles are too uniform  '. . . and he was never heard from again. . . .'
  • Wow. That looks old. I don't profess to know diddly about rubs, but I question whether age is culprit.  Not only do they look and smell different, but the consistencies are very different between the two - the sample is very refined with …

  • Here's an interesting discovery.  The family fell in love with the Raging River from the sample packs we ordered, so I ordered a shaker from a retailer selling on  What I received was VERY different from the sample pack.  Different color…
