    House Cured Sous Vide + Smoke Pastrami

    I've been attempting to perfect my pastrami. I may need to give this method a try. Did you get a good smoke flavor? Thanks! Billy

    Chicken and Sausage Gumbo

    That's some good looking gumbo. If you get a chance, can you post the recipe? I'm always looking for a good gumbo recipe. Billy

    Reusing Lump

    I've been doing this kamado cooking thing for a little over a year. I live in Houston about 5 miles through the woods to the Gulf of Mexico. (I still haven't got used to the humidity.) I always leave my leftovers in the grill. I'm cheap, and I throw nothing away. I also don't cover my grill. It is tucked under my back porch so it is out of the elements. On 2 occasions, I've had popping and sparks from what I expect to be moist lump from being left in the grill. On both occasions, it had been a couple of weeks since I last grilled. (I had been on vacation, out of town, etc.). I make it a point to grill at least 1 time per week (if in town). Grill more often! Billy

    Instant Pot

    Tonight, I cooked a pot roast with potatoes. Man, it was tender and good. From pulling out the roast from the fridge to eating my first bite was about 2 hours. I cleaned the pool and went to the grocery store while I was cooking. Multi-tasking...

    Peach Rub Recipies

    This is a local place here in Houston. However, they have a good website. http://johnhenrysfoodproducts.com/ They have a "Summer Peach". I just rubbed down a rack of pork with the rub tonight. I've never used it though. I'll let you know how it goes. I tasted some before putting on the meat. It has a good flavor profile: peach, sweet, and little tingle of spice. It looks like you can buy a bottle or 10 pounds.

    Instant Pot

    These are awesome. The old lady bought one. We love it.

    I jumped on this deal too. The bag was heavy. It was also dirty as cschaaf points out. I believe this is due to the material of the bag. I haven't tried it yet. I'll give it a try when I'm done with my current bag of KJ lump.
  8. Looks great. I, too, would like to know the recipe on the beef.
  9. You can call me an idiot, but I have always left my smoker alone. Stick burner, cheapo pellet pooper, and now kamado. I will attempt to cook on days that I'm around the house more. However, that isn't always the case. I need my beauty rest too. I'll never stay up all night for a cook.

    Trade KJ black classic for red

    I've seen a black one locally. Probably at my local Ace hardware. I guess it was old stock. Where are you located?

    I Like Cheap Butts

    Shoulders are $.88/pound at Houston area Krogers. I picked up a couple.

    Uv light for dry ageing

    I agree with ckreef. Temp is really all to worry about.

    If you were to buy a smoker that wasn't a Kamado

    I had an el cheapo Masterbuilt from Sam's. I liked it, but it is very cheaply made. After about 4 years, the connector to the heating element rusted out. I replaced that. I believe the heating element recently went out. I just haven't had time to deal with it. I'm thinking of another pellet smoker. This is a timely discussion for me.
