  1. Sure hope John takes Mike up on his offer. The information contained within this site has allowed me to become quite proficient with my Kamado's over the years. As for going with Kamado FB page, nada, visited several times over a course of a month and found the testosterone levels a bit high for my liking and no moderator willing to rein in the guilty party's. Sorry to see this site go down. Thanks again John.

  3. A good hardware store (not HD or Lowes) could tell you in a heart beat what it is. Probably metric would be my guess.
  4. I know some guys name their cars/trucks, everybody names their boats. Thought I would name my Big Joe. "Thomas".
  5. Got a PKGO for the RV. Don't regret it a bit. Not all that fond of gas so it was an easy choice for me.
  6. I have 2 KJ's and got a PKGO for our 5th wheel because well........ceramics on the road didn't thrill me very much. But it has opened my eyes to the oval shape benefits. Easier 2 zone cooking for one. I'd be hard pressed to get another KJ if something happened to one of them. Haven't been impressed with some of the members stories about CS.
  7. No place to put a garden or a lawn either, things I'm pretty partial to. Guess you could put a raised bed on the roof. I'm also partial to a nice shady tree occasionally.
  8. Not sure about this, they use dynamic braking down going down hills, (uses the electric motors to slow it down) but still use the diesel electric motor to pull up the next hill. There are no storage batteries to feed power back into when going down hills. I could be wrong, since I've been retired from the RR for goin on 12 years.
  9. I got the PKGO and use it occasionally as an hibachi. Works great. Much lighter for the 5th wheel than the JR.
  10. Where's everybody gettin the idea that chuck is a poor mans brisket? Brisket around here is fluctuating between 4-6$ a pound. Chuck is North of $7 a pound. Word must have gotten out that I started buying chuck several years ago and use it for most everything. Now the price is skyrocketing like everything else.
  11. Regardless of the technique you use to cook what is today, a very expensive chunk of meat, I use a good thermometer and watch it like a hawk. Nothing worse than an overcooked Prime Rib.
  12. If you’re over 35 hire movers. You’re friends are too old. Nobody wants to slip a disc for pizza and 2 bud lights. Saw this and saved it for just such an occassion, fits me to a tee. Those things are heavy. I use ratchet straps and a stinger on my tractor bucket to move my BJ if it is necessary.
  13. Google I believe. Might try Safari.
  14. I got one for the 5th wheel because I figured depending on the JR would lead to nothing but disaster. So far since it's just the 2 of us, the size is pretty good. Wish I used it more than I actually do. Fit and finish is excellent. Controlling temp is not as easy as the ceramics but doable. Bottom line......I like it.C01DAAA0-80ED-420C-A470-BEB8E48CFF3C.heicC01DAAA0-80ED-420C-A470-BEB8E48CFF3C.heicWhy am I unable to upload pictures? Never had problems before.
  15. They work better on hotdogs as opposed to brats. Skin too tough. I would have to use a rubber mallet and then, how long would it last. SWMBO got it for me as maybe a gag gift. She knows I don't eat hotdogs, just brats.
  16. I've been pretty pleased with the PKGO for our 5th wheel too. Very sturdy and almost indestructible.
  17. Sorta depends on how many are eating. When I cook just 1, I always double the thin piece over and tie it so it's at least as thick as the rest of the roast. God eats.
  18. Yes, remove the grate with the basket and it will sit lower. Not sure that will fix your other issues because my basket is not a KJ.
  19. When I got started on country style ribs, (many, many years ago) I cooked them direct on the Weber until done and caramelized with BBQ sauce at the end. Now, on the kamado, I sear them on high until caramelized, then into foil with some Johnny's firecracker sauce on mine and sweet baby Rays on hers and into the oven for 3-3 1/2 hours until fork tender. Sorta like pulled pork but with some moisture. She likes it and that's all that matters.
  20. Would be hard pressed to word it any better. Thanks Jeffieboy. Nice pics also.
  21. A friend posted this on his FB page last week. It's true. They're beautiful dogs. Ran into a couple at the store today and they had an 11 week old pup. He was ex law enforcement and they said it took 18 months to get him. He was aware of the issues pertaining to this breed and he knew what he was doing..... (I hope). Just food for thought. We're going to the movie this coming Tuesday. No plans on getting one of these though because I'm the guy in line 13 Shane Doss February 14 at 9:37 PM · There is a movie coming out on Feb 18 called "Dog". It stars Channing Tatum and a highly trained Belgian Malinois. It's a road trip/buddy movie. People are going to see this film and many will want their own Belgian Malinois. This is not going to end well for this breed. A highly trained Malinois is a work of art. So is Michelangelo's statue of David but I don't necessarily want it in my living room. This breed can be amazing in the right hands but they require a lot of everything. If you are considering getting a Malinois, please, first go meet some Malinois of all ages at your local rescue. Be honest with yourself about the amount of time that you have to dedicate to training one of these dogs. Not the person that you want to be but the person that you are right now. Sitting on your ### and reading this post. If you are still determined to get one. You can stem the inevitable tidal wave of Malinois that will be surrendered to the shelters by sourcing your dog in one of 3 places: Your local shelter A local Malinois rescue A real, ethical breeder (researching one is hard work but an ethical breeder will prove their dogs and require that you return the dog to them if you can't keep it) DO NOT get a Malinois from the guy down the street. Don't help backyard breeders line their pockets. Pure bred doesn't equal good breeding. If you see the popularity of these dogs sky rocket and think you can make a quick buck by breeding some. May all of your financial ventures fail one after another. From the bottom of my heart, I love this breed. I know what's coming and so do the shelters and rescues. TO ANYONE READING THIS THAT WANT TO FRIEND ME ON Facebook GO TO MY GROUP CANINE ENCOUNTERS AND HIT THE JOIN BUTTON. BECAUSE FACEBOOK ONLY Allows 5000 FRIENDS ON A PERSONAL PAGE AND IM MAXED OUT UNFORTUNATELY.
