  1. A most interesting beer

    If I had to guess, I would say it probably has Citra hops in it, which will definitely provide a grapefruit essence. Being so cloudy, it appears to be a New England IPA, which typically use hops with a strong tropical fruit flavor and aroma. I know a lot of the breweries are bringing out IPA's that are less bitter, but more tropical, citrus and floral aromas. I was in Tucson last month, and had a Citrazona from Barrio Brewing Company which was pretty good. You may want to look for that one and see if the flavor profile is similar.
  2. I ordered four racks when SRF had their Super Bowl "pick six" special, buy three items, get three items free (3rd item was a brisket). I was planning on doing the same thing, comparing with a rack of Smithfield ribs I have in the freezer. Looks like you beat me to it, hopefully I do mine justice and they turn out as well as yours.
  3. Looking to add a pellet to my grill fetish and have been checking out the Traegers, I was looking at a bigger one, but this one may be more in Santa's price range. https://www.costco.com/.product.100285860.html?EMID=B2C_2017_1208_12_Day_Deals_Day9&_sm_au_=iVV4sjQHrQMfq4TN
  4. SRF cowboy steak

    I bought two of their rib-eye caps last year about this time (they had a great BF sale, keep an eye out for it) and cooked them for birthday dinner and anniversary dinner. Didn't even need a knife to cut them, awesome steaks. I also bought some bone in pork chops this year, did them sous vide followed by a quick sear. The pork quality difference was not as apparent as the steak quality, but they were still really good. After seeing your picture, I am definitely going to go for the cowboy steaks this year!
  5. Thinking About Adding a Pellet Grill thoughts?

    I was in Costco at lunch today, and saw they are having their Traeger roadshow. I didn't stop to investigate, but saw they had about 4 different ones. May have to go back and investigate further. I cant imagine it being that much better than my KJ at smoking, but then again I never figured my Joe would be that much better than my gassers.
  6. spare ribs, salt

    They both have four legs and taste good, besides, I'm a chemist not a biologist!
  7. spare ribs, salt

    I did an overnight dry brine on my beef ribs last weekend, then seasoned with Montreal Steak seasoning before smoking. I had no issue with saltiness, and I typically use very little salt on my food.
  8. Look What Followed Me Home!

    I must be doing something right if she's put up with me for 25+ years!
  9. Big Joe Ash Screen for 2014 models?

    I have never had a spark make it through the spark screen/ash pan in over a year. However, I have had sparks fly out of the bowl when the lid is open and I'm doing a high heat cook, but I have never had a live ash land on my deck. I do not leave it unattended if the lid is open and I do have a small fire extinguisher nearby.
  10. I cooked a salmon fillet on the JT and I ended up overcooking it trying to get a nice color at the finish. Now it's back to the grates.
  11. Look What Followed Me Home!

    I followed the suggestion of Rip and it worked! Told her that since she was not comfortable lighting and cooking with my KJ, I bought the Akorn Jr. for her so she could cook quick meals when it was just the two of us. She said thanks, but I know she saw right through it.
  12. At least that's what I'm telling my wife. Anyone have a good answer for when she asks why I needed a 5th grill?
  13. Akorn Jr

    Wife said I couldn't buy myself any more toys until after Christmas after she saw my Prime Day orders. Then again, we have a full season of football and tailgating, and probably some camping between now and then. It's small enough to hide in the corner of the garage right???
  14. Amazon Prime Day

    Couldn't resist the Sous Vide. I pre-ordered the nano when that deal was up, but now I don't want to wait until November and this was a great deal. I'll either end up with two, or someone will get the Nano as a Christmas gift.
  15. Flip Spatchcock Without Tearing Apart?

    I slide a large spatula underneath the chicken, and hold a plate above it so the chicken is sandwiched. Then I flip it and slide the plate out. Haven't lost a limb yet!
