  1. This is offered for sale locally. Does anyone have any thoughts as to age and value? It appears to be in good order, but are parts still available? Thanks!
  2. I use a ceramic 15" circle on top of a ceramic grill store spider.
  3. There are still a number of Walmarts around me with last year's 22" pit boss for $349. Less grill area than the 24", but an outstanding deal. I believe they started at $599 or $699. Brickseek link to check stock around you (enter zip): https://brickseek.com/walmart-inventory-checker?sku=46716275 I do like the blue glaze on the new 2018, but I will keep my black because it works.
  4. Sounds like you are doing it right, probably will just be one random cook that got away from you.
  5. I have had the same experience as @EZ smoke. I have a K22 like yours, and added felt to the bottom & top vents. I don't have any problems keeping 225, but it is hard to get the temp back down if you overshoot. Were you able to get 225-250 before you installed the Flame Boss? Also, is the Royal Oak you are using lump or briquettes?
  6. I have a pair of these, work great: https://www.amazon.com/Kershaw-1120X-Taskmaster-Shears/dp/B0002IMMEW/ref=sr_1_21?s=kitchen&ie=UTF8&qid=1513888916&sr=1-21&keywords=poultry+shears
  7. My Pit Boss doesn't have a sweet rack system, dammit! Thanks for the response!
  8. Is your rack resting directly on the disposable pan? I have considered doing that, but I was worried about the pan collapsing.
  9. Good catch, I came here to post the same, 14 hours too late! I would be in for one, but I bought the 8qt instant pot on black Friday. I am only up for learning one new gadget at a time.
  10. Here is a thread I made on sealing it up:
  11. What did your deflector look like after that?
  12. I am wondering how other pit boss owners (especially those with a 22") set up for indirect with a drip pan. I find that the lower grate doesn't have room for a large enough drip pan. When I smoked a turkey on saturday I had the spider with my heat deflector on top. Four 1/2" copper elbows on top of the deflector to create an air gap to prevent the drippings in the drip pan from burning. A 9"x13" pyrex on the elbows as my drip pan, and the lower grate holding the turkey directly on the pyrex. It worked pretty well, but I would love to use a disposable drip pan instead. What do my pit boss brothers do?
  13. It wasn't too overpowering, but I think I am going to go with apple on game day!
  14. Thanks! I used 3 chunks of hickory.
  15. Smoked a 16# Pilgrim's pride bird. I am responsible for cooking the Thanksgiving turkey for the in-laws & sister in law's family. 1st turkey on the pit boss. Used Meatheads recipe. Turned out pretty good!
  16. Looks like they are out of stock now. I sat on the fence too long...
  17. Looks like a knock off of an Anova with no WiFi or Bluetooth. I have had experience with Monoprice in the past for cables and speakers and was very happy with their products. No idea about their cooking products. https://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=21594
  18. In 2010 that author wrote that the stock price had recently been $125 but was $68 at the time of writing. It is $5.76 right now. Since Sears was at ~$125 it is down 94% and for comparison the S&P 500 is up 109%. Oooof!
  19. Those pizzas look great! How do you like the Pit Boss OEM heat deflector?
  20. Here is the Amazon link: https://www.amazon.com/Pizzacraft-Round-Ceramic-Baking-Pizza/dp/B005HU0WR4
  21. My in-laws asked me to cook some ribs while I was up in Memphis this weekend. They have a 22" Pit Boss but did not have a heat deflector. My father-in-law had purchased a pizza stone and it turns out the rack for holding the pizza stone actually holds the heat deflector over the Firebox pretty well. I think he paid $15 or so for the 15" pizza stone.
