  • Re: Setup question

    do this set up with the xl rig:

      -  xl rig on the fire ring;
      - 17.5" stone with crossbars on either one of the lower rig notches;
      - 20" round or 16"x20" oval grid on top of the rig.

    you won't have to touch a thing.  you can add wood anytime you like, just slip your hand under the stone and drop the wood.  18" drip pan optional.

    checkout the video on youtube:  smoking a brisket


  • Re: KJ Vs MM

    I saw the mmax at a show yesterday.  Gotta wonder why such short legs on the platesetter, especially after all the comments with the original short legged xl platestter.  Can't be much more than an inch spacing between grid and platesetter.

    it's time to move on and grow your business.  Sounds like you are still reliant on the company to produce leads.  As such, your abilities and income will always be dependent on the company and manager. 

    I've spend 25 years as an investment real estate broker.  It's 100% commish and you learn quickly how to survive.  Similar to what you are doing but with one exception, could be a big exception for you,  you source your own deals.  No reliance on the manager for a lead.  Investment real estate brokerage can be crazy money, highly competitive and in some respects, it's almost a requirement to eat your own in order to demonstrate you belong.

    Like Mickey says,  a good manager will know how to keep your edge sharp without getting cut (pissed at you), because it's simple arithmetic:  The more you make, the more they make.
