  1. Well today we were trying to figure out what to make for lunch, a common problem at our house. Well while we were at the Egg dealer picking up my new swing rack, Norah said lets make fish tacos. she spotted a new rub so I'm guess that's part of what prompted her. The rub was made Suckel Buster and is called Fajita Seasoning ( guess what it made for ) lol. It's a nice mix of sea salt, black pepper, garlic, chili powder, paprika, sugar, cumin, onion and other spices. It seemed to have just the right flavor for today's go at tacos. Off to Fresh Tyme market to grab some fish, and like all tightwads I went with what was on sale. We marinated the fish in a mix of chilies in adobo, fresh lime, cilantro, a splash of soy, and the fajita mix. The fish was marinated for 30 minutes while the girl came up to temperature. Once out of the marinade, we hit it with a little more of the Suckle Busters and tossed it on. First thing I found is how fast it cooked, fallowed by how good it was. Fish was grilled at 450ish for just a few minutes total. Below are some photos of the food. Sides included grilled corn, cilantro chili lime rice and black bean beans. Thanks for looking and comments/tips and tricks always appreciated.
  2. @TKOBBQ it was the best meal I've ever had! She worked so hard to do this for me. Im such a proud father, I couldn't have asked for a more loving and caring child.
  3. She wanted to cook for me tonight because we've got a hectic schedule on Sunday. She made a full meal starting off with a perfect grass fed strip steak with cast iron green beans and smashed redskins. Man was she busy she was running in and out of the house to get it all done! She was happy to have mom as her second tonight, to make sure the potatoes and beans didn't run into difficulties. Well once it was all over, she went out and tossed on a few peaches to have for a "final" dish as she put it. All and all it was an amazing meal and the best gift I've ever gotten. She's an amazing kid who lets me know how much I'm loved everyday. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  5. Tonight Norah and I decided to make some chicken thighs. She rubbed them down with a mix of salt, pepper, garlic, onion, and some honey powder. These were cooked on my KJ classic at 225-250 degrees until they hit an internal of 160. At that point we took them off drizzled a little honey and Turbinado sugar on them and let them get sticky and glazed. Pulled at 165 and rested under a foil tent for about 15min. Served with some alfredo noodles and a side salad. All and all they came out really good with nice bite through skin. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Congrats to BGosnell

    Congrats on the new cooker! I'm looking forward to seeing some cooks. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. [mention=10960]In2Fish[/mention] she loves to cook, she seems to be a natural at it. @Bgosnell151 it happened organically for us. She's always been into "helping" in the kitchen. Just let them hang out with you and see what happens. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Wow @John Setzler when I tell her in the morning she's going to go bananas. She's such a fan and wants so badly for everyone to like her food. She's been asking me about making a YouTube channnel for her and also letting her enter some backyard events.
  9. She's been saying she wants to make a video with her KJ and @John Setzler, because as she puts it, he's a pit master.
  10. @bostoncoffeeparty they were pretty close, she has what use to be my mk4 She's claimed it, I have to get permission to use it now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. So Norah wanted to make a few sliders today to start the long weekend of cooking. We purchased some grass few beef and stuffed them with cheese. Grilled them up on her Joe Jr at 500ish. Served with some cast iron red skins. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Funny you mention the need for a big joe. Was talking to Bobby last week about selling my egg and being an all kj house hold. Trying to figure out what an xl egg is worth in Ohio[mention=6855]smoker08[/mention]. My uncle built the table for her so that we could slip a classic 2 in it. I know someday she's going to want an upgrade. Funny thing about Norah, she loves to watch Johns cooking videos. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. @smoker08 she has her own kj jr but the brisket was to big for hers. Some of my favorite photos Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. @KamadoJoseph, my Norah Grace turned 8 on April first, man it's gone fast. I hope your Nora will love the hobby as much as mine dose Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Well for Mother's Day my little girl wanted to make mom her favorite!!!! A brisket Dad!!!! We need to make a brisket! So if to the GFS we went so that she could pick out what she wanted. It turns out she felt the the 15lb one was the best of the bunch. So home we went to get things trimmed up and seasoned. She wasn't comfortable with the knife work, but was clear on her instructions to me. So we seasoned it up and tossed it in the fridge until it was time to cook. I told her we'd need to get up around 3am to get the kj fired up and ready to roll. I didn't expect her to actually wake up, but when I went downstairs at a little before 3 she came running, yelling about how I promised to get her up. Apparently she set her alarm to make sure we didn't forget. Well we went outside and lite the joe with 2 wax cubes and let it slowly come up to temp. While we waited she reapplied the rub and told me what else I needed to do( I now have 2 bosses at home). After about 45min the KJ classic was stable at 250ish and on went the brisket. My little girl went back up to bed, and I sat down at the kitchen table thinking about how fortunate I am to have a wife and daughter who love me, and take an interest in my hobby. It seemed like I was only down there a few min. When I heard my wife's alarm going off to get up and ready for work(about 90min after Norah went back to bed). Well the brisket cooked all day and when my wife came home it was ready to go. I've picked a few of my favorite pictures to post along with this. Man she nailed this cook, I'm so proud of her, for wanting to do something special for her momma. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
