  1. Congrats. That's a fantastic looking cook.
  2. It is indeed a great time to cook brisket. There was no hamburger at my local Wal-Mart but plenty of brisket. Most people wouldn't know what to do with one. Advantage K-Gurus
  3. In before everyone tells you that you don't need a temp controller when using the Joetisserry... Since you asked though, just clip your sensor to the dome thermometer and you will be golden. Some people keep it there for all controlled cooks anyway.
  4. The K-type probe on my Heatermeter registers at least up to 900 degrees. You can find information about Heatermeters at https://store.heatermeter.com/. There have also been discussions on this forum. If you search for "heatermeter" on this site then you will find information as well. Happy cooking
  5. Thanks for the update. I can't see the facebook group stuff anymore but it seems to be a worthy grill for the price.
  6. Any updates or final impressions from those who have cooked on one of these?
  7. The cooler of water will work and it will take some time as well. You will have to swap out the water from time to time because it will get cold from the meat.. If you always add 35-40 degree water and watch the temperature of the bath so it doesn't get above 40 you will be just fine. Even a bit above 40 will not be a problem as long as it is not for too long. Best of luck.
  8. I was asking because you can set some sous vide machines to low temperatures like 39 degrees and it will thaw food quickly without risking temperatures above the lower limit of the danger zone (40 degrees).
  9. Any chance you have a sous-vide circulator?
  10. You know how it is, some of us can't leave well enough alone
  11. Thanks for the updates everyone. I am not as concerned about the warranty as some might be because this is a new type of grill / smoker as far as I can tell in terms of how it works and the high heat range and no one really knows how it will stand up over time. If the electronics went bad on this then I would re-wire it and use a Heatermeter to control it. I am more concerned about how the metal will hold up over time and again, no one really knows at this point. I'm most interested in the smoke profile and as someone said want to know how that is for people here on the Guru who I can be sure have used charcoal rather than people on FB who may or may not be new to charcoal. I don't know if I really want cast iron grates as a full time cooking surface as I prefer stainless steel just because it's easier to care for. I feel like this will be a "mod" friendly grill with a large user base and I like that about it as well. I have yet to see one in a local store so maybe they have been just that popular selling out quickly. I'll naturally be looking forward to John's thoughts and videos. Happy cooking Gurus
  12. They are great units. I think you will enjoy it after you get the bugs straightened out. Mine is rock solid but I must admit that I don't use wifi with it, just Bluetooth. I guess I just got used to using it that way. Are you cooking in a pot or a cooler? I use mini ping pong balls to keep the steam from getting into the electronics as much as possible. Happy cooking
  13. Some questions I have: Can someone see how low it will cruise without the fire going out? If it is set to a low temperature does that change the smoke profile? I see lots of smoke coming out of these in most of the videos I have seen. I wonder if it will produce light blue smoke and what it takes for that to happen. Does the app give the grill the ability to hold the food at a low temperature after the food reaches the done temperature and can that be set to happen automatically? Does the app show temperature graphs and are the temps fairly consistent or does it drift over a certain range and if so, how big is that range? Does this unit need to be connected to the internet in any way to work? For anyone with a pellet grill this size is that enough room for you or do you find yourself wishing for more room from time to time?
  14. Thanks for the link. Has anyone found the temperature range or manual? I'd like to know specifically how low a temperature it will hold. They are at my local Wal-Mart now. I'll probably take a look at them.
