  • I watched all 4 episodes this evening while my wife was attending an in-service meeting at work. I especially enjoyed the Fat episode as we will be in Italy in March. Kind of got some ideas for meals while we are there.
  • I started with a sampler pack from Amazon that had like 5 different flavors. That helped me decide which smoke types I liked best for different meats. I picked up a 20 lb. bag of their Signature Blend yesterday at Ace - https://www.acehardware.com/d…
  • NPHuskerFL said: Post your MM cooks, setups etc. And most recently @NPHuskerFL  What's the scoop on the nest leg modifications?
  • Great looking MM pics. Thanks everyone. Again, an invitation to join us on Facebook - see the link in my signature if you are interested.
  • I have wrapped before but normally i just let the butt ride until 203 and pull it off then loosely cover it with foil to hold the heat in. Butts are very forgiving and don't seem to dry out much so no need to foil unless you are adding something to…

  • Welcome. Just cook until it probes like butter. I only use the T to tell me when to start probing. I usually start around 190 probing the meat. Some is fine at about 193 and sometimes I have to go over 200 to get it to probe right.
  • Those look good. I've switched to boneless wings for most of my cooks. I take chicken tenderloin and cut it into strips and then do them like wings. Been working out pretty good. I'm the only one in the family that likes wings on the bone. 
  • I've got a couple of nags in the garage along with plenty of other lump. Wife would have a fit if I bout more right now.
  • Great looking meal. I love potatoes au gratin. And happy birthday.
  • I have had the book for about a year now but I wasn't aware of the Netflix show.

  • I see your problem with the stew- you put okra in it.  I'll have to give this a try as I'm looking for followup recipes for my brisket cooks. I'll skip the okra though as I only like it when fried.
  • GlennM said: i saw this at Walmart yesterday. It looked really good to me. 36” griddle with rear discharge, two side burners, deep fryer, nice cabinet and shelves. Covers for the griddle and burners, integrated curing board and even a paper tow…
  • I've gone both routes but prefer to make my own. I sometimes just go GSP and I keep Holy Cow and Dizzy Pig on hand for those times I don't have the time or energy to make up a rub. I used this on my brisket this week: Paprika 1 cup Garlic Powder 8…
  • GlennM said: I have I have seen this offer a lot lately. Seemed too good to be true so I held off  I sort of suspected a scam or something. But I didn't want to pass up informing you guys in case someone would be interested.

  • I think I would have passed as I have better options locally but let us know how it turns out. You may have stumbled onto a gem. I'll take a look next time I'm in Trader Joes which is about once a week.
  • I don't think there is enough alcohol in the world to get me drunk enough to try balut. 
  • Sometimes the meat has a mind of its own. The 7 hours seems a little too fast but you say it probed like "buttah" which indicated that it was done. So who know what really happened. PSA: I'm not sure if cutting your thumb would have saved this bris…
  • "Repeated overly negative posts". What is that supposed to mean?
  • jimdgreat1 said: Do they make a 34 inch grill? It should have said 36" but by the time I realized the typo it was too late to edit the post. I'm seeing this advertised on Facebook.
  • Don't know how I messed the original thread. But thanks to all who served. I was lucky enough that my service came during peace time. But my father was on Okinawa in WWII and his brother was injured in North Africa. I have an Uncle and a half broth…

  • Dang spell checker on this fire tablet is out to get me 
  • I want to know how she stays so nicely dressed and clean .Most of my rubs have paprika in them and I always end up getting  red stains all over me and everything else in the kitchen .
  • Just glad I could help.  You will need to let us know how that turns out. She is doing it in the Instant Pot?
  • ^^^^ I believe that was the last song Johnny recorded.
  • @vb4677 Thanks for the link. Got to try some of those.
  • SmokeyPitt said: PSA - a "tool" to have near the kitchen I saw that. May go to Walgreens and see about getting some. But hopefully the gloves will keep me from needing it.
