  1. Yesterday
  2. PBR is a fine, affordable domestic diversion! Makes great canned boat beer. Is that a turkey or chicken! Ah, steroids! No telling what they're doing to all of us! Huzzah for the Almighty dollar! Bomber to the new deck, BTW, it's awesome! I am sure you'll love it!
  3. Hi, I was introduced to the kamado concept some years back, when a family member got a BGE. He was doing quite a bit of cooking on it, and it all came out great. Now, this is not unexpected, as I've never had anything he cooked that was not great. But the variety of foods that could be done in the grill was what stuck with me. For a long time, I had a series of charcoal grills, usually the standard Weber kettle. The main problem I had with them was that they continued to disappear - someone would borrow it..... So the Kamado has the added advantage of being much harder to loan for the weekend. I also like the ability to use as a smoker, as I was looking at a stand-alone smoker, and that would be one less appliance to clutter the place up. Currently using an inexpensive gas grill, and just not satisfied with it. Even simple dishes need pretty constant monitoring, and no way am I going to do something requiring a long cook time in it. So, limiting. That said, I like the ability of a gas grill to be up to speed quickly, when needed. Currently eyeing something like the KJ Classic, mainly because there's not a whole lot else needed to get started, but there are options (the rotisserie might be the one I'm most interested in). While on occasion I've done 3 meats and 3 veggies at once, typically I'm doing simpler meals for two. Once in a while (once this whole pandemic is over, hopefully soon) I do have up to 10 folk for a cook, but it's not like everything has to be done on the kamado. The use as a smoker is something I'll have to learn more about, as the last smoker I had was a barrel decades ago. Kind of expecting some differences. Have been browsing and searching some of the forums, appreciate the sharing and expertise out there. It's already helped me with the process of considering my possible purchase.
  4. I like it as well, drank a LOT of it in my youth too... The wife likes Miller which works as well Heck, WAY back when, I mostly drank Schlitz... I was young and didn't know any better!
  5. Here's what I ordered (but they appear out of stock): https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08ZYF7NZS/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 And here is another low cost option. Hell, these are even cheaper! https://www.amazon.com/JUXATECH-Handle-Wrangler-Handles-Accessories/dp/B08JGLP69W/ref=sr_1_1?crid=12EJIO0U4RAQT&dchild=1&keywords=roll+bar+grab+handles&qid=1627933985&refinements=p_85%3A2470955011&rnid=2470954011&rps=1&sprefix=roll+bar+grab+hand%2Ctools%2C188&sr=8-1
  6. I started drinking PBR in college when it was REALLY cheap and affordable. I grew to like it! HAHAHAHA!
  7. I just accept the fact that the dome temp is going to somewhat lower than the grate temp. I know its about 20-30 degrees off and thats the way it is. On longer cooks it tends to even out I dont stress about it if I want a super accurate grate reading then I will clip a probe to it This isnt heart surgery
  8. @William Griffon If you can post some times as examples, I can compare it to my grill times. It's gonna vary a bit from session to session and it's also gonna vary based on what kind of pellets you are using. Some pellets produce heat better and faster than others.
  9. Yes, very nice indeed! PBR?? I haven't had one of those in years... nice!!
  10. That's a great looking grilling area and that enclosed area for sitting/eating is awesome.
  11. glad it worked out for you. Please post links to the jeep handles when you get a chance.
  12. Sounds good glad to see you getting back at it.
  13. Congrats on the 18 years. I remember when i had my 30 in and told the boss seee yaaaaa
  14. Ignore - asked and answered as the lawyers would say.
  15. @CentralTexBBQ Thanks for posting up the video you shared. I went to Harbor Freight and snagged a two-pack of lashing straps for $3.99. I then went on Amazon and found two-packs of Jeep roll bar grab handles; I bought two two-packs for a total of $8.48. So for $12.47 I was able to put together a kamado moving rig that worked BEAUTIFULLY!
  16. I hadn't cooked on my Vision S-Series Professional in well over a year! The cart got kind of sketchy and I was storing it in my garage between cooks, so I didn't want to roll it around and risk collapsing the cart and shattering my ceramic. Unfortunately, and fortunately, the deck on my house started falling apart and we had to have it ripped off and replaced. We decided to have it rebuilt larger, and enclosed! I have a little area for my cooking hobby which I finally got set up this Friday. Then yesterday (Sunday), I fired up the kamado and threw a chicken and some mac n' cheese on. I'm looking forward to getting back into cooking on my kamado!
  17. Sounds a lot like growing potatoes! SO much easier to just buy a bag than go through the whole process!
  18. It was good. Did a chuck roast in my Dutch oven yesterday. This lump doesn’t pop like the RO does. I just don’t know yet if a bag will last longer than a bag of RO.
  19. Thanks! It all went fine and my Vision has been moved to it's new home!
  20. I got it freed by tapping it on the countertop. Sucks there is no way to clean it out.
  21. Tasty looking steak, I could dig into that right now with a couple of eggs on the side.
  22. Good looking meal. Your next to last picture should be your money shot: that is the definition of a campfire cook. Good job!
