    Not yet. I got my egg last Sept. so I'm still a newbie with many mistakes to be made. I'm glad I found the forum early on as my cooking experience is 100% positive from everyone's help.
  • Re: First swing at Caveman Ribeyes, Damn!

    Looks great!! The only way I will cook a steak. A few funny looks from those watching but after their first bite, the not so sure about this look turns to a look of I need another bite of this heaven.

    Great job!

  • Re: OT Hobart Meat Slicer

    And it's back together. I smoked a pork loin tonight and in the fridge. I'll slice it tomorrow when it's cold. I was going to get a sharpener for it but the original is $200. I think a Work Sharp WSKTS-KO sharpener would work just as good and I could also use it on my knives.

    Here is what it looks like done. There are still a few small items I will get but I wanted to be sure everything was working before spending money on non-essentials. I guess I'll be getting a stainless cart for it.

    I think I got a bit carried away when all I wanted to do was slice my 10 lbs of pork belly for bacon. That bacon better be fantastic.

  • OT Hobart Meat Slicer

    I haven't done much grilling this summer or posting. I took July off for a bike ride to Newfoundland to BC and everything in between. When I got home, I was thinking I got to smoke the 10 lb pork belly I have but I don't have a way to slice it. I turned to Craigslist for a decent used slicer. I saw a used Hobart 1712 with power feed for $200. It looked like the guards were missing and it was listed as everything working but not so good. After 2 weeks of slow replies to emails, they said they want $65 to just get it out of there. A 30 minute drive, I found the slicer had all the guards and they were removed for the photos. The motor sounded good so I got it. After taking it apart some, I found they ran it low on oil (yes, they have an oil pump) and trashed a brass $39.00 gear only. I cleaned it a bit, put the new gear in it and putting it back together. I want to put a new cord on it and hopefully I can find one at my local hardware store. Otherwise it's done. Here are a few photos as I've been going. Also a photo of what it looked like when I got it.
