    • Keeper ya got the mental juices flowing with the cardboard tube.   Yelled at my wife in the other room and asked her if she emptied any ribbon spools this Xmas, I'd like to check out the empty spools.   She said she had just thrown some in the recycle bin yesterday.   Went to the garage and rummaged around and found 4 that were a perfect fit.   And plastic to boot.  Gives the cable a gentle wrap around about a 3" diameter and then rubber band around the middle.   Been storing them in a rubbermaid bin all jumbled up but now, I HAVE ORGANIZATION!!!  Thanks Keeperoftheflame.
    • I am thinking of wrapping the cable around a piece of paper towel cardboard tube. Stuffing the tube with a piece of packing foam and inserting the probe into a hole in the foam. cutting a notch in the tube to slip the end of the cable and the connector through to hold it secure.  Haven't tried it yet, but think it will work. No kinking in the cable and the probe is protected and held secure. I will let you know how it works. My wife just asked me if an over size plastic hair roller would work as well. I am going to mess around with this idea. 
    • Sorry for putting you on the spot, but just not that many of us have had the honor of piloting a Bubba Keg.     Thanks for giving your 2 cents. And for once, I agree with you....  it’s definitely had a good run at that age.    Good of luck with whatever direction you go, @Fishtails!
    • Oh, my, put me on the spot. No, I don’t know. I love the keg but as it is steel, corrosion will be an enemy. Give a ceramic firebox a shot. I would love to hear how it works. If not ten...eleven years....a pretty good run.  I suspect it may be difficult to find a nice fit on a ceramic firebox, but if you can do it on the cheap, try it out.
    • I’m sensing we have a theme thing going on here....     Nice job!  You sure do keep Jr busy. 
    • Hi frank, this was actually a full brisket. No trimming done on the flat at all, only the point end. It was Tasmanian grass fed, Cape Grim. I love the Cape Grimm briskets and shorties, but they obviously don’t have the fat content of the grain fed. But I prefer the flavour. 
    • @prowe - Any input on this one, Bubba?
