  1. Four Eyed Friends

    If you ain't buying your glasses at Costo, you are paying too much!
  2. Turkey trouble

    Testing in boiling water is a good idea for old probes. I found two old ones that read correctly at 70 degrees but would not go over 150..
  3. Help Needed!!!!

    You MUST add a layer of heat tape to the top of the dome, and you may need to add a layer to the air inlet door slider as well if you have a pre-2017 model.
  4. To Whomever recommended Academy Sports to me

    HA! Not sure where you shopped but in Austin, they have the lowest prices on firearms and ammunition in town, in case that matters to you.
  5. Gourmet pellet choices?

    Diamond king claims no fillers no additives no nothing other than real post oak. I've got a sample on the way, will post up if the smoke is like real post oak stick smoke, or not...
  6. Gourmet pellet choices?

    I too have no use for mesquite wood, but I've already got some B+B oak, I think I'm going to order a sample of "DiamondKingSmoker" post oak pellets and do a comparison. I would surely love to get stickburner flavor from my pelletspitter..
  7. Gourmet pellet choices?

    I've been surfing the interwebs for the BEST best smoke flavor pellets and found a lot of choices, so who likes which pellets? My search started out looking for oak pellets that would come closest to post oak for brisket cooks but I'm also interested in best smoke profiles/brands for pork ribs, pork butt, yardbird and turkey.
  8. Spatchcocked Turkey

    Maybe it's just me but I prefer the flavor and texture of the breast meat when the heat source hits the ribs from the inside rather than the outside or skinside in..
  9. Spatchcocked Turkey

    Fantastic! Only way to cook a whole bird. How long and how hot?
  10. What's cooking here?

    That's a stone, right?
  11. Brick Oven Pizza Basics

    Keep in mind that those things don't work well when aimed at reflective or lite colored surfaces, so are of limited use on Kamados.
  12. Roasted Turkey

    Did you cook that bird right over the coals or did you have a deflector installed?
  13. Thought I'd start this up again so folks would not miss the pics.. Don't know where they are going but them pits are on the move! I count 10. Looks like the trailer will be open today, wonder if anyone knows?
  14. Hence the reheating (at the expense of over cooking). Gentlemen, that's called chili meat.
  15. Beef must be cheaper where you shop than where I get mine.
