    Those look good.  What's in that topping?
  • Re: Help!!!!! (Again)

    How are you setting your bottom vents and daisy wheel? I open my bottom vent to two finger widths, and I have the daisy wheel small holes half open.  

    More detailed.  I fill the fire bowl, and I use the electric fire starter to get a small fire started in the middle.  In about 10 minutes I pull the electric fire starter, and I close the lid with the vents wide open.  I watch it until it gets to 250, and then I put the vents where I know is 250 as described above.  Then I don't touch it again.  Opening the lid to put meat, plate setter, etc in will drop the temp, but if you trust your vent settings, it will go right back to where you want it without touching it again.

    It may be worth playing with it without meat in it one day.  If you can get it to stabilize for a couple of hours without meat in it, you will be able to nail it down with meat in it the next time.  Just be patient and let it settle down with the vent settings that you know work without meat in it.
  • Re: Wooden Deck Crew - Do I Get A Grill Mat??

    I have had 2 people that I know with major fires from having a grill on their deck.

    One was not an Egg, but she lost her house, and her pets.  She barely got out herself.

    The other one was an Egg.  His neighbor called him to wake him up to tell him that his deck was on fire.  He is really lucky that he has a brick house, or he would have lost more than his deck.  By the time he got outside the Egg was laying on the ground under the deck.

    It also seems that these fires tend to ignite at night when people are asleep.   I guess it's just the timing of the embers falling out while cooking dinner then sparking up later.
  • Re: OT: Daddy Juice

    Daddy Juice is what we call it too.  There were a few of us out riding 4 wheelers one day, and one of them had his 3 or 4 year old son with him.  We stopped to take a breather, and his son was pointing out the stuff he was seeing.  He promptly pointed out a "Juice Tree".  This was a tree where some people must have been drinking next to, and were sticking their cans on the limbs.

    My only thought was how nice it would be if it really did grow on trees.

  • Re: Neighbor Complaint!

    I think it was a hint to invite her over.
