  1. A juicy LUCY has the cheese stuffed in the middle. I also add grilled onions with it. Make your patties thin, stuff then mash the patties together around the edges. Doesn't get much better than that.
  2. Oh, my bag also says restaurant lump.
  3. I just opened my first bag of Kamado joe that I got at the Costco roadshow. The pieces were so large that my husband took a hatchet to some so they would fit. I will not be able to use them in my Jr. I will use Royal Oak in it. I am now using the coconut charcoal that a bunch of us bought a couple of years ago from Williams Sonoma. I had forgotten how much ash they produce but need to use them up so they are out of the shed. Happy Grilling.
  4. Our Costco carried both slices and slabs. I am sure you can get a whole slab f you ask. They could be in a different cooler also.
  5. Great job Jeri. I think our weather is turning the corner. Hot next week.
  6. It is a lodge. It says 8 dol on the bottom. Seems to me it was either a 4.5 qt or a 5 qt.
  7. Today is my first cook on my new table and using the Smokeware top. I have to say the top is a life saver. I do find that you need to close it more than the Jr cap. It really keeps the temp steady. I am very happy. I am smoking a chuck roast for dinner.
  8. I might add that it seems the firebowls are the items that crack the most. I have a six year old Vision and I have had no cracks. I have a Joe Jr also and yes the bowl is thicker but it cooks the same as my Vision. If I was on a budget I would probably go with the pit boss. You can always return it.
  9. Great job. I love the idea about the umbrella.
  10. I went on the site and looked at the leveling casters. I thought "good" idea until I looked at the price. $67 each was more than I could afford. I think a little square under the frame and then the caster will be more logical for me. But I do thank you for sending me this site. I can certainly use them for other things.
  11. It turned out really well for me. I just need to work on the wheels. My patio is slanted so we need to put a piece of lumber under the cabinet then reattach the wheel to make it level. I have never seen adjustable casters but it would be nice to find some!
  12. A friend of mine made this table for me to house my Jr. It turned out so nice. He said he could make drawers but I think I will work with it and see if I need them. I am afraid they would warp in time with our rainy weather. I ordered a cover for it. The cover is really too big but my trusty old Singer sewing machine will take care of that.
  13. Great deal. My Vision is 6 years old. No cracked box and have many great cooks on it. Welcome to the addiction.
  14. It is dry aged pork jowl. It is very expensive and used in Italian dishes.
  15. I just bought one also. I got so frustrated with the top unit closing every time I opened the lid. To me it is a major flaw with the Jr. Love the grill but hate the cap.
