  1. They won't dry up, but they will darn sure stick together if you don't store them in a cool place once you take them out of the blister pack.
  2. Great recipe, thanks! I'm sitting here munching on my first batch of these and they are delicious! Pecan smoked with Daddy Dave's Rub for the seasoning.
  3. Dang! Works great on my Akorn. I start my fire with my vent and TTT settings as I normally would without the Billows and when it gets to my target temp I mount the Billows. If it overshoots the target consistently, I adjust the TTT a little. I made an adjustable air inlet for the Billows (some folks just use masking tape). Makes the fan cycle longer and it seems to make very little difference so I don't even bother with it now.
  4. Yep, high octane 91% is pretty hard to find, if at all, but the 70% low octane has been working just fine for me.
  5. I'll have to try that some time. Right now I have my Apple Pie Baked Beans in the cooker. I always put a pound of pulled pork in mine.
  6. If you are interested, the Signals is on sale now.https://www.thermoworks.com/Signals
  7. The latest Signals has the open lid sensing feature that works rather well. Yesterday while smoking the ribs, I opened the lid twice. the fan came on for just a second or two, then shut off. Apparently it reads the sudden temp drop. Chamber temp dropped to @ 160 while doing my thing and after closing the lid again the fan didn't come back on and climbed past my target of 225 to 232. Signals then took back over and continued the cook at 225. The Smoke I have is what convinced me to upgrade to the Signals and Billows combo because of it's quality and ease of use. The Smoke has now been stored away. . BTW. I took the whole daisy wheel assembly off and just jam the TTT into the hole. I didn't permanently seal it off so that when the flapper gets gummed up I can remove the dial and soak the rest of it it in carburetor cleaner overnight.
  8. I had already modified my lower slider with a flat piece of sheetmetal, just didn't like that curved end for accurate adjustments and for shutting down. I don't see much of a way to mount it with the stock slider, plus the mounting plates I ordered weren't even close to the groove size. Got my Signals and Billows last Thursday and did 2 meatless burns to get it dialed in while using my TTT. Figured out to just initially set it where I normally do and the Billows takes good care of the fire. I would guess that if you are still using the daisy wheel, it would be the same. Start a small fire in the lump, open the bottom wide open, get the Signals and Billows rigged up with the grate probe, put the deflector on, then the grate and close the lid. Let the temperature come up to @160 and then close the bottom til it's about the size of the Billows opening and mount it. Plug the fan wire in and away it goes. The fan shuts off @20 degrees before the target and cycles in short bursts til it gets there. Mine overshoots the set temp by about 8 degrees for about the first hour of cycling and then settles in. Did a chuck roast first and was I ever impressed! As I type this, I have a rack of baby backs on and it's been holding within 2 degrees for about 4 hours.
  9. After your first trip to an emergency room to have a broken bristle removed from your throat, you will NEVER get a wire brush even close to your grates. Now nothing but nylon for me. This one was less than a month old when it got me. https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B00T95H1PE/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 This one has served me well for nearly 2 years and still on the original head. As stated, surface must be cool. https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B01LW2Q1MY/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  10. My gasser with cast iron griddle is used mostly for reverse sear of steaks. Smoke low and slow and sear on screaming hot gasser griddle.
  11. Right now I'm resting a butt that was sugar and salt wet brined for 24hrs.....We shall see how it comes out compared to apple juice injection only.

  13. Old fashioned carburetor cleaner works best for me...let it soak for about an hour and rinse with hot water. It should last for a long time if that's all it is used for. https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B000ABGA4E/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1
