  1. That looks amazingly good! And something I might thought of trying on the kamado... keeping that in mind for a day when I want to do something different.
  2. @shuley thanks for the post on this. I think I'll try one of these with the tater tots. Seems like that would be a much more palatable ratio of meat to other ingredients for me. Excited to give it a whirl sometime! And I did try my CharBroil lump this past weekend. Great size uniform pieces for the Akron Jr and burns really clean. Glad I purchased everything they had left.
  3. Check out the smoker pot postings... I think some use chunks with chips as filler for a modified cast iron Dutch oven (1 or 2 qt).
  4. Ok - to start off - I am very fond of all you guys and your posts. You're all part of the reason why I love this forum so much! I'm not upset at all, just finding this thread a bit comical. The whole soccer mom thing is hilarious to me. Being one of those few women on this site, I just find this ridiculous... changing clothes and freshening up after lighting the grill, really? Wresting with a bag of lump? Lol. There are days I tell the guys at work that I am hoping to get home in time to clean up and cover my grill before the next storm rolls in and they just chuckle at how crazy that sounds - especially coming from a woman. Guess I'm not a stereotypical woman in this regard... As far as the controller goes, gender aside, convenience is convenience and if that's what a person wants, then there is value in that product to that individual.
  5. I'm super supportive of mine's as well. I want to have a KK sitting on my deck or patio one day too, so I am willing to entertain the latest gun, tech or pellet grill fads... whatever strikes his fancy. I scored some of the 50% off CharBroil lump charcoal when I passed through a town with a Lowes yesterday on a road trip. He didn't bat an eye at what I spent, but freaked out when he found out it was 12 boxes of charcoal. I think I got a double eye roll and a "WTH is wrong with you" glare at the same time for that. Oh well, it was totally worth it. Good luck with your project, Catsn'doos! I'm sure that whatever direction you go it will turn out great!
  6. Wow - what a great idea! I knew you would be knocking this one out of the park, Beautiful and tasty... doesn't get better than that.
  7. I was in a big city today and gassed up near an Ace. Checked to see if they had the KJ lump, which they didn't. There was one across town that did, but I couldn't bring myself to add another stop to the trip which would push departure to rush hour. Regretting that now...
  8. And he ate it all.... I should have known.
  9. And my husband thinks he's going to tangle with one of these solo tonight... thawed out dry-aged Ribeyes for me and the older girl. Pretty sure he's going to realize that was silly and we all could have just enjoyed the one tomahawk cowboy cut Ribeye. But who am I to stop him - I definitely won't be complaining about leftovers.
  10. Beautiful Mother's Day dinner, Smokehowze! I spent my Mother's Day on the back deck with an induction burner working on seasoning my carbon steel pan with the Volrath method from your epic shrimp post the other day. Can't think of any better way to spend it. Think the husband is going to grill himself a nice thick sous vide tomahawk Ribeye, and me a nice dry aged Ribeye steak for dinner in a bit. Should be a perfect ending to a very good day. Wishing we had your sides lined up though - those look fantastic!
  11. Sign me up for a few of the vodkatini's as well. Best way to start a cook. And loves the notes - lol. The carrots are beautiful, chicken looks perfect, and anyone who can knock out risotto like that has my admiration.
  12. Been wondering where you have been. Really enjoyed seeing all your mini cooks. Good luck with the move. I have the same. - Vision B and BGE Mini (plus Akron Jr). Hope it goes well for you.
  13. Awesome cook and congratulations on the Big Joe!
  14. Congratulations on the trifecta! Super jealous that you have scored it all in the black. I sure wish they hadn't discontinued that. The red one looks like the odd man out though. Probably better get rid of it, or send me your trifecta! Your cooks are stunning. Every single one of them looks almost too good to eat.
  15. It cleaned up really well and super easy - looks like new (although I don't think I took a close look at the bottom come to think of it). But I am still hesitant and probably wouldn't put my favorite little orange pot in there. Just can't bring myself to do it although I'm sure it would be fine.
