    Where did you buy your Kamado Joe Grill?

    I'm "given it a rest". Still trying to figure out what I'm supposed to rest?

    Thermometer Calibration - A Dry (chicken) Lesson

    I have trust issues. That being said, I usually verify with my Thermopop whenever my Smoke gets within 10-15 degrees of temp. I don't always get the probe in the correct spot with the Smoke. I even have trust issues with myself.
  3. I've had this grinder for several years. Got it at Penzeys and believe they no longer carry it . I like it and it can be adjusted 1-8 for different grind sizes. Ceramic mill. Wife says I use too much pepper but she's also the one that wants JUST a gram of salt on her food and nothing else. We have issues. .https://www.amazon.com/Zassenhaus/b/ref=bl_dp_s_web_7603171011?ie=UTF8&node=7603171011&field-lbr_brands_browse-bin=Zassenhaus

    Give what a rest?

    2019 New Kamado Joe III being sold

    My first one was a Pit Boss from Costco. Wasn't quite a year when a crack developed in the outer shell. Went to Costco and inquired when they were going to get more Pit Bosses in and the person I spoke to said it was a hit and miss as far as inventory. Didn't want to deal with manufacturer so just returned it to Costco and got me a BJII and JR from Ace Hdwre. Been happy ever since.

    But like I said, if you got 10 people waiting for the door to unlock, and 5 wanted "the deal" (which they were still doing before things got ugly), I'd been one of those people tripping others and running to find the rep. Also spoke with an individual on this forum from the same area and she was the first one there and the rep told her that the "deal" was already taken. She asked him how that could be when she was the first one through the door. I did go to Costco a couple of days later and loaded up on lump and a jotisserie.

    Deli Style Meats

    Mind giving us a blow by blow as how you accomplished this? Very interested. Thanks

    When I was finally convinced and ready to purchase a KJ, the only Costco with a roadshow available to me was 1 hour away and I woulda had to be there before they opened. Since I woulda had to drive Portland rush hour traffic and take a chance that I would be first in line and be able to outrun what would undoubtedly be way younger guys than me, (and they probably woulda frowned on me if I winged one of them to get a fair chance) I opted to go with Ace Hrdwre which was having a 15% off and free shipping. Did the math and it was a couple hundred more than Costco. In my opinion, it was a no brainer. And way less stressful.

    Soft Boiled vs Poached Eggs

    Only issue I have with the soft boil is handling the egg to get it outa the shell. I'm really a twink when it comes right down to it.

    He was set up!?

    Yep, knew a couple of girls just like that.

    rib eye steaks on the pellet grill?

    Hard to beat a ribeye cooked really low on the pellet pooper until IT is about 110, then throw it on a screaming hot kamado to sear it. Do mine at 150 for about an hour (depending on thickness of steak)
  13. Well, if he was young I'd hold out hope. But he's 42 years old. When he was a young lad in grade school, he saw commercials on TV that claimed "this is the best on the planet" (be it detergent or anything advertised). He asked his mother one day why she didn't use "this" laundry soap because it's the best. I sat down with him and tried explaining the virtues of pitch men and I tried to instill a bit of skepticism in life itself. Now with the WWW, I'm afraid all is lost, he absorbs everything as if it were the gospel. I've tried to do what my dad instilled in me, "believe nothing you hear and only half of what you see". Course, he was the one that also said he walked to school barefoot in the snow uphill both ways.
  14. There is a group of people (morons) that would disagree with this statement. The "flat earth society" of which my youngest offspring is a member of. And yes, he's a moron.

    New Kamado Joe Cart

    With what I had on hand and what I scrounged from friends, I Think I have a grand total of $18 into my table for my BJ and JR.
