    Thanks for the kind words.  As for shells, I use flour or corn torillas, pending on what I am going for.  I like corn for different meats and feel that the flour complimetns the fish. Simply heat them on a hot surface, that's it.

    I LOVE fish tacos. Got hooked on them in Mexico and ate them every day...at least once. My Big question is what do you do with the shells? Are the just fajita heated or something?

    I think if I had to pick.. Dutch oven would be it... When I think of "A Dutch Oven" I think of all the comfort foods out there to eat ( one pot meal)  And theres so many recipes I like to try..

    You will probably get a different answer from each person, but I am fan of the Dutch Oven and use it regularly. 
     
    Just the Italian Pulled Beef recipe floating around is worth it, but it can do a whole lot well.
     
    If you have a CI Skillet, it can do smash burgers etc and a good deal of what the griddle can do too.
     
    Here is a thread where I made General Tso's Baby Backs in my dutch oven.

    My personal cooking style is to use my bare CI for bread baking and my enamel CI for almost everything else.  
     
    I use the pizza stone a ton, along with my flat griddle.
     
    if you want burgers or any protein with a crust, do for the griddle. If you like to bake go for the stone.

    To be honest the dutch oven would be really great to have, but it all depends on what you cook regularly as well as if you cook during the winter months. I don't have a dutch oven yet but I could run off numerous things I could use one for. Chili, clam chowder, lobster bisque, gumbo and there are a lot of other meals I could think of. That said, if you don't feel like you would use the dutch oven then I would return it and get that double sided griddle. Personally I would keep it and buy the griddle at a later date. Dutch ovens are really useful and a bit more expensive than a griddle. But again, it really just depends on what you like to cook.

    So my wife got me a KJ dutch oven for Father's Day but she said her first choice was a pizza stone (which wasn't in stock) or a half moon griddle. She saw ridges on the griddle and she didn't know the other side was flat so she settled on a dutch oven. Don't get me wrong, I love the thought and love my cast iron but I haven't really cooked any dutch oven food. Once my wife realized the griddle was flat on one side she said she would have gotten that. So the question is should I return the Dutch oven for the griddle or keep the Dutch oven? Which do you use more and for what? I don't want to keep it and not use it.

    I'm going to throw this out there. I think tables built for acorns should be made of oak because that where the oak comes from! [emoji23][emoji23][emoji23]

    Busy day at the Joes with a couple of firsts. Did some pork belly burnt ends and beef ribs for the first time! They both were amazing! Also did up some turds, thick cut pea meal bacon and a hobo pack of potatoes and onions. To top it all off did a couple meatloaves in the oven (looks like I need another kamado)!

    I hear about the Summit looking too much like the kettle all the time. Some people (even in bbq circles) think it's actually a Performer that Weber is price gouging on. It's definitely too close. 
     
    I told Weber this when they contacted me about my opinion of the Summit and they said they have never heard that...which surprises me since I hear it every single week. In truth, the design is similar but it's not even close to the same. That said, anybody who us used to a ceramic is not going to be impressed by the feel of it because everything is lighter. 
     
    What Weber told me is the design they were going for was something that looked different but still felt like it belonged in the Weber family. I think they accomplished that but no matter how much I enjoy the Summit and think it's great from a functional perspective, you can't make a $2K grill that reminds people of a $349 grill and not expect to have problems convincing people it's worth it.

    I fully understand the summit is no ordinary kettle. The summit was not available when I got my kamados. I haven't even seen a summit in person yet. My point was at the beginning BBM said a kettle is good for a cheaper alternative and it is. However if you like bbqing all year in the great white north you'd appreciate a kamado (or any other insulated type cooker). I still have a kettle(performer) used it this weekend in fact.

    I liked you video BBM. I like how you give a fair enough amount of weight to the pros and cons of each. Having cone from Weber kettles into ceramic kamados I would like to add something.

    I got into ceramics because I like to bbq all year long and it gets cold, rainy and windy here in Canada. Now I know what some of you kettle heads will say that you can maintain temps in -30c in your kettle. I could too and did. But man I burnt a lot of charcoal and spent a LOT of fussing time doing it. I probably would have stayed with kettles if I were in warmer climate...I love how cheap they are and therefore didn't worry too much about modifying something on them. But, you just can't beat the temp holding power of a kamado.

    Keep up the good work BBM!
