  2. Do you light from the bottom or place a fire starter on top of the coals?

    Making Canadian Bacon

    Thank you Look forward to your recipe.
  4. I bought two pork loins that were on special at a local super market. $1.29 lb. There were fresh not frozen whole pork loins. Each one was about 10 lbs. and look awesome. I cut each in half and froze 3 of them. So now I started searching for recipes to make some Canadian Bacon. Oh my god so many conflicting recipes. Nitrites, no nitrites, #1 pink salt, buying prepared mixes. etc. etc. etc. I want to cure without nitrites. Not because I have this great fear of nitrites but of poisoning my family by doing something wrong. I settled on a recipe that uses large grind sea salt and saw one where they used Himalayan Sea Salt so I settled on that. Simple cure with the salt, brown sugar and fresh ground black peppercorn. A ayer of cure on the bottom and then cover the rest and pat in over the entire loin. Put in fridge in glass Tupperware baking pan for about 5 days. The plan is 2 smoke at around 180 to 200 degrees until internal temp of loin reaches 150 deg. So am I going to poison my family? Should I change recipes before I make any more. Why do we have ro worry about bacon and not other cuts of meat? Help!!!!

    I'm going to fire up the new Acorn Kamado today. Temp is supposed to be in high 60's and tomorrow afternoon in the 30's with some snow and gusts to 50 mph. Any tips on curing and burning off the oils?

    New to Kamado Grilling

    Well I finally went to Home Depot this morning. Had to pick up some lump charcoal. I went where they had that Acorn Kamado with the dent in the top to see if it was still there. Well it had another tag on it. Buy today take $50 off. Buy today with new Home Depot charge take $100 off. Wow that would make it $99 so I went to the maiin desk and said I wanted to buy it. They wheeled the grill up to the counter and the girl started the checkout and new account procedure. I already have a Home Depot Charge so I opened one in my son's name which just so happens to be the same as mine. o to make a long story short they also had a prmotion going on today 0% off any puchase of $25 or more so I got another $20 off. Final cost was $79.99 plus tax. I still can't believe it
  10. Can someone tell me how to change my avatar?

    Your right on with the Buffalo Wings. They originated here at the Anchor Bar. I'm going to Home Depot and talk to the manager..

    I will offer them $150. It's been sitting there since last fall. Maybe they want to get rid of it before the new grills arrive.

    New to Kamado Grilling

    Hi I am from Buffalo NY and I'm expecting a Acorn Jr to be delivered tomorrow. Not new to grilling and smoking but new to Kamado.grilling. I was looking at a Char-Griller Akorn Kamado Kooker at Home Depot that has a dent in the cover marked down to $199 and I was intrigued by the unique style so I came home and started to read up on Kamado Grilling. That's how I found this forum. I have a Weber Smokey Mountain Smoker and a Char-Broil Gas to Coal grill but the interesting concept of Kamado cooking led me to try it out. I bought the Acorn Jr to see if I'm going to like it. Is the one at Home Depot worth buying?
