  1. A pot lifter could be a real help maneuvering (sorry, manoeuvering) the Kamado
  2. the Akorn is just steel, so some form of hole saw might do
  3. Plus, SV cooking is not much of a spectator sport... not a whole lot to see
  4. there are no dumb questions. Only dumb answers (not implying that there are any dumb answers in this thread!)
  5. When I first got my Anova, I started out in a pot. I then moved to a Rubbermaid container (https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B000R8JOUC/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1) and lid (https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B000VAUFD6/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1) that I cut a rough hole in for the Anova. I was losing quite a bit of water, so I added a sleeve for the container (https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B07FLJ2FV2/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1) and hinged lid made for the Anova (https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B071L6PRY8/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1). My wife calls the sleeve a "dress." That's been my setup for a while. A cooler would do perfectly, since it should be well insulated, but I'm not cutting any holes in my Yeti!
  6. Whoa, that's bad! Am I correct that KAB switched from steel to stainless steel? Do you guys have the steel or SS versions?
  7. The circled guy? Why not bend it back into place? I don’t see the big deal
  8. Maybe I’m blind or stupid, or both, but I don’t see it
  9. Maybe they run out of logoed bags on occasion and use non-logo bags when that happens. I dunno. There’s a pizza place near me that uses disposable cups with logos of other restaurants. They probably get them on the cheap rather than getting cups with their own logo.
  10. whoa, those tuna steaks look great!! I'd second @Walrus's suggestion about sesame seeds. I usually mix black and regular sesame seeds for some visual appeal. I have no idea if there is any difference in taste between the two kinds of sesame seeds. Personally, even though I dig wasabi, I would skip it or use it only sparingly, primarily because I find it to overpower the yummy goodness of the tuna.
  11. I have these: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B011VLLUQ4/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and these: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B07C1SXL8F/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I can't say how they stack up against @John Setzler's favorites, but I certainly trust his judgment on all things BBQ and Kamado. One word of caution is that some gloves (the ones I linked to, included, I think), even though rated for extremely high temperatures, CANNOT and SHOULD NOT be used if wet as scalding/burning can occur.
  12. maybe some kind of mold? IIRC, I read somewhere that the Sloroller is teflon coated; maybe the powdery stuff has something to do with that coating?
  13. that's really cool @endou_kenji! Did it start out as some sort of grill? It kinda looks like an upside down chiminea. Any concern about top-heaviness?
  14. Whoa! that's horrible! I guess the word of caution is to check out the actual seller if you are buying from Amazon. I usually make sure that Amazon is the seller or at least that the order will be fulfilled by Amazon. In the end, I think Amazon would make it right but what a pain to have to deal with. In 20+ years as an Amazon customer, I've had a few, very few, mishaps/issues. They have always made it right. I was looking for Caputo 00 flour a few months back, loooong before the recent surge in demand for flour. Checking Amazon, there were a bunch of items that were supposedly repacked from bulk, and they weren't particularly cheap. Needless to say, I didn't buy any. Reminds me of a trip to Jamaica that I took about 25 years ago. I stayed at a decent resort and thoroughly enjoyed their blue mountain coffee. I figured I'd take some home, so I bought a bag at some market. It looked great in a little burlap sack. When I got home and opened the sack, it was pretty clear that I had been suckered. Ground coffee in a plastic baggie. The resulting dreck was horrible. Oh, well.
  15. +1 on grilled watermelon and pineapple. Peaches, too!
  16. “You want a s’more?” “Some more of what?” ... “You’re killing me, Smalls”
  17. Looks great! i saw the first picture, and thought, “um, where’s the freaking asparagus and Brussels sprouts??” Of course, I found them!
  18. Royal Oak is a solid lump, is (usually) readily available, and fairly priced at (usually) between $.50 and $1.00 per lb. costco was (maybe still is) running a deal on KJ lump: $80 for 80 lbs.
  19. I kinda doubt there is a counterfeit ring for lump charcoal. Watches and handbags, maybe.
  20. Aha, prosciutto! looked like some form of cured meat Thanks! Sounds (and looks and, I'm sure, tastes... I mean tastED) great!
