  1. not sure it will keep my doctor happy, so he and i will just have to agree to disagree on this one. but i frickin' love this and i must try it.
  2. WOOOO! like Dr Frank N Furter pointed out, i am shivering with antici....................................
  3. i could easily be talked into the 14+hr drive to help out with the moving and learning, John
  4. a certain famous four words spring immediately to mind.... now THAT'S a knife!
  5. i'm into my first bag of KJ lump, and it's been terrific. timing is wicked good and i'm very happy to learn about this sale. i will definitely be taking advantage of the buy 2 get 1 sale tomorrow after work. thanks for sharing @Milanista
  6. i noticed a hairline crack in mine too, about a year ago. it hasn't changed a bit. but i do remain cautious about where i keep the stone when not in use. if it's not left in the grill, i keep it protected from the elements to ensure there is little to no chance of it absorbing moisture. i'm also careful to use a drip pan between it and the grates when doing a cook that could drip a lot. one more nugget, don't put a cold stone over a raging bed of coals. my practice is to let the stone heat soak while the entire grill comes up to temp. all that to say, you should be fine for quite a while since you're already being careful with it.
  7. first and foremost, 45" seems awfully high. my table top is 37" from floor and the gasket of my Vision S is 39". i'm as tall as you and i would not make my kamado or table any higher. esp the kamado, as you may wish to consider those times when you need to pull the grates and reach down inside for any reason.
  8. dang it, missed the window to edit my post, so here is a little bit more info... i don't always use the umbrella, but when i remember, it's handy for those times i want to get out there and look in to check temps with a hand probe just to be sure. using it or not using it has zero effect on the cook. it's mostly about me not wanting to stand in the rain but it has been handy during the initial lighting of the lump up until i can close the lid.
  9. i have a setup that works ok so far.... cheap as dirt, and keeps the water where it should be. garage sale umbrella can be mounted in my table, and i have a cheapo chimney/vent cap on my top vent. as to temps and times, well, i have observed no noticeable difference than cooking on a dry day. mind you, i have not cooked in an ugly sideways-rain down-pour.
  10. amazing cooks. i should be turning in, but now i've got a rumbly in the tumbly after looking at all of this pron. and thank you for confirming that i need to add a blackstone to the collection. i know that Mrs will most definitely notice a new cooking appliance out on the deck, so i'll be busted before i can even start. but if i can use your cooks for inspiration and pull off anything even half as nice, i might be ok...eventually
  11. sure looks like it was a fun evening shared. so much to love about those times together with the kidlets. cook sounds interesting and tasty too. must try that idea with Boy the Younger.
  12. +1 for The Wok Shop and your seasoning AND cook both look great. nom nom. i have a Woo Ring that i use in my Vision S from time to time, and it does work a treat for those times i want to use my carbon steel wok or paella pan. gets you just that little bit closer to the heat source.
  13. one could use a large diameter stainless hose clamp, something like i've done on mine...mind you, you will have to cut it. i wasn't too bothered by that. i painted it and that was fancy enough. plus hey, it was jazzed up with the stainless steel. while it is certainly not the most glamourous modification out there, it is also far from the worst. but it works a treat in all conditions and does exactly what i wanted it to do. and i never have to worry about it.
  14. it's absurd enough that i must have one while i am licensed for restricted, i'm thinking that at my house, it may be even better suited towards grilling AND my own water-gun/nerf gun defense. specifically thinking of all the times that Boy the Younger and his collection of miscreant friends get going on any number of missions. they rarely suspect the old guy at the grill...
