  1. Hi everyone, I used to be a Pit Boss owner but took it back and have some accessories that have only been used a few times that need a new home. I have a spider rack, two 16" half ceramic stones, a 16" round stainless drip pan, and a replacement thermometer. I live in Seattle, WA and hoping to not have to ship if possible. All items are purchased from the Ceramic Grill Store online with the exception of the thermometer. Prices are as follows: 16" Half Ceramic Stones: $20 each 16" round stainless drip pan: $10 Spider Rack: $20 Thermometer: $5 Thanks for considering.
  2. Wow that was quick! Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  3. Not sure if this is the right forum for this, but there's a killer deal on an ash vacuum right now on Newegg, $20 for an Austin Baccus "Bad Ash Vacuum". I'm not too familiar with this model, but at that price point I'm willing to find out. https://flash.newegg.com/Product/9SIA6RB3EU3700 Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk

    I typically wait for the heavy white smoke to dissipate and wait for the more bluish/lighter smoke before I put my meat on. I prefer the profile much better that way. Are you wanting more of the heavy white smoke? Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  5. Hi all, Thanks for all your suggestions. This community is great. I was able to get it unfrozen by lighting some firestarters and putting through the bottom vent. They lit up my leftover lump and about 15 minutes later my dome was at 300 degrees and it was all unthawed! I did a little more reading and I'm going to try to place a layer of aluminum foil between my gasket so it doesn't re-freeze. Here's the article I looked at, maybe deserves a sticky during this time of year? http://hrmcreativebbq.blogspot.com/2014/01/how-to-properly-unthaw-frozen-shut.html
  6. What do you use to shim the lid?
  7. No, this is definitely a Moist gasket freezing together overnight. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  8. Yeah! Wanted to take advantage of the sunshine and throw some ribs on, but maybe I'll defer to a different day as I would hate for that to happen.
  9. Depending on how this blanket trick works another suggestion was to add a firestarter thru the bottom vent and let it burn out. I don't want to get things too hot as I wanted to a rib cook at around 250
  10. I have I have an electric blanket somewhere... just cover the dome?
  11. Has anyone successfully opened a dome lid that's frozen shut? Any tips would be appreciated, thanks.
  12. Thank you! Thigh/leg was around 180 and breast was 165. Exactly what I was aiming for! Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  13. A new family tradition! I brined this 12 lb bird overnight with a mixture of salt, sugar, minced garlic, and crushed red pepper. Dried her off and rubbed her with a Tom Douglas Poultry Rub. Used mostly Apple chunks but threw some Hickory on too. 300 degrees for about 3 hours and it was a hit with the family! Moist and flavorful throughout!
  14. Now don't get me wrong making pizza from scratch is a whole lot of fun and results can be fantastic, but for those quick delicious pizza dinners on the Primo, Papa Murphy's take and bake can fit the bill and turn out great! 425 degrees for about 15 minutes and it turned out delicious! Thus was the "Jack O Lantern" Pizza and I added some jalapeƱos for a kick. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  15. OK I took out the firebox and was able to get a hold of the nut behind and pulled the screw out. Looks like the some threads are damaged on the screw so I'll take a trip to the hardware store to replace. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  16. Thanks but the screw just spins freely tightening or loosening. I try to pull it while loosening and it just won't come out. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  17. Hi all, I noticed that the left side of the bottom draft door looked a little loose so I attempted to tighten the Phillips screw with a driver and it just keeps spinning. Even applying pressure while tightening doesn't do anything. The other 3 screws are all tight. Any suggestions? Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  18. Couldn't be more thrilled with the way my first low and slow cook turned out! I picked up an 8 lb butt from the local butcher and followed Ross' post on the "Pork Recipes" forum for a Puerto Rican style "Pernil." (Lots and lots of garlic!) Since this was my first time doing it, I made sure to wake up real early to get the fire going and temperature dialed in. After settling in at 250 degrees with Apple chunks throughout, she went on and stayed there for about 7 hours, and rested (FTC) for another few hours after that. Lo and behold we dug in and it was delicious. So juicy, tender, and smokey! Wife approved as well.
  19. I'd expect it's due to me being in Seattle and the mornings are pretty misty/humid. I've begun to oil the cap and it's getting better. I'm sure it'll be fine. Thanks for the advice folks!
  20. I'll keep that in mind! Haven't found anything I haven't liked at Whole Foods honestly [emoji6] Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  21. Hopefully you all don't get tired of these threads, but just finished my first pizza cook last night and it turned out delicious! Since it was the first cook I used a store-bought dough but you wouldn't be able to tell! Ingredients consisted of a simple red sauce, mozzarella, salami, and mushrooms. Wife was impressed!
  22. Hi all, ive had my Oval for just about 3 weeks now and have had some great cooks on it. Unfortunately it looks like my top vent has accumulated some surface rust. Has this happened to others? What did you use to remove? I've attached a pic. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  23. Thanks for all the replies folks! I figured everything was ok, but always good to get a second opinion from the gurus! Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  24. Hi all, Did some chicken drumsticks and thighs yesterday for a crowd and they were a huge hit. Unfortunately when I was saucing the chicken some got on the gasket that I didn't clean up right away. When I opened the grill later the spot where the BBQ sauce leaked onto the top and bottom gasket stuck together and ripped some off. Not a whole lot came off and both gaskets are still sealed and attached. Should I be concerned? Should I trim some of the gasket that is "fuzzy"? I'll definitely be more careful next time!
