  1. I second the Peugeot, had one for a while and the adjustment band cracked, took it back and they gave me a brand new on. Sign up for the Williams and Sonoma emails and you will eventually get a 20% off one item coupon.

    Agua Chile aka Ceviche

    Looks great! What did you rim your beer glass with?

    Question for the ladies (anniversary present)

    See if they can incorporate that design onto a Komodo Kamado and get that for your wife. Happy Anniversary!

    I am considering ordering this one with "grates" on one side. It's 11.5x15 and looks reasonable thick. For $87, it costs just a bit more than the KJ on Amazon. http://www.theseasonedgourmet.com/product/name/soapstone-griddle/id/916269

    How many pounds of butter did it take to make that amount? Is that two half pint jars?

    Gaps in firebox

    I just replaced my original one piece firebox last weekend after cooking with it cracked for a year. The old one is in at least 5 pieces now, so you may as well save yourself some time and keep using the firebox that is designed to be in five pieces.

    Cleaning brightwork

    For brewing equipment the recommended strength is 1oz per 5-gallons. Of course my brewing equipment never looked anything like my grill grates (thankfully), so Bosco is probably pretty close with his 2X solution.

    Cleaning brightwork

    If you have a homebrew shop nearby, you can buy smaller amounts. If they do not carry PBW, ask them what they recommend for cleaning (not sanitizing) stainless steel brewing equipment.

    Need some help with poultry

    Before I got my Joetisserie, beer can chicken was about as close to rotisserie as I could get. I did read about a grill accessory called the Vortex in another thread where @KismetKamadoused one to make crispy wings. While researching the Vortex, I saw where some folks claimed that it could be used to make rotisserie-like chicken without the rotisserie. Not sure how accurate that is, but it's not expensive and may be worth giving it a shot.

    Vortex Wings

    Thanks for the links, looks like Owens may throw in some free wing rub, always a bonus. I'll have to leave a not so subtle hint with the wife, I'm not allowed to buy myself toys between October and Christmas.
  11. I stopped by Costco at lunch today and saw they were having a Traeger roadshow. I kicked the tires and listened to the spiel, and am quite intrigued by the Century 34 model. The Costco deal includes the 24 pound hopper found on the Timberline model, bag of pellets, the upgraded temp control/probe, a small warming rack, a cast iron searing grate, a lower shelf and a kevlar cover. It's going for $899. I know a few of the Gurus have the higher end models, just curious if anyone has any experience with the Century 34.

    Vortex Wings

    Every time I visit this forum I am reminded of just how much I don't know. This is the first I've heard of the Vortex, so now I need one, I guess it would fit the Weber Performer. KK, do you recall who brewed that beer? I have a friend out west with whom I do bottle shares with a couple times a year, your beer sounds really nice and the color is incredible.

    Fogo 15% off this weekend.

    Jumped on the bandwagon and ordered four bags. For some reason I always assumed FOGO was way more expensive than the KJ I usually by at Costco, but even the regular price is reasonable. Thanks for the heads up guys, and happy grilling this Labor Day!

    Unexpected Cook

    Sure your Big Joe wasn't jealous of your KK and was just venting...? Eyebrows and hair grow back, eyes and hands don't, glad you were not hurt. Nice looking steaks.

    Smoked beets and flank steak

    I decided to spin the trout, so the beets made their debut yesterday. I ended up putting the beets in a cast iron pan on the deflector. after about 30 minutes, I put a couple of ribeyes on the grates above. I was doing a reverse sear on the steaks, so they stayed above the beets about 20 minutes. Took the beets off, cranked up the grill and seared the steaks. The beets peeled just like you said, and the wife had downed two of them before she even touched her steak. She really liked the charred part that was in contact with the cast iron. Needless to say they were a big hit, and now she wants me to prepare them again, this time under a spatchcocked chicken, maybe add some carrots and potatoes. Thanks for the inspiration!
