    First beef rib attempt

    Thanks, they were great. This was my first attempt, wanted to see how long they’d take before making for my wife and guests. Never thought they would take 10hrs

    Photo issue

    Gotcha- figured it was something related to the format by the Phone

    Photo issue

    I got them to post by accessing via “my photo stream” instead of “camera roll” no idea why it works that way, photos are same size, etc

    First beef rib attempt

    10hrs later and they are done and awesome. Ended up wrapping in butcher paper at about 8hrs when they had a good color. Took them to 203 then wrapped in a towel and placed in a cooler for about an hour while I made a new Mac and cheese recipe and fried up some fries.

    Photo issue

    Not really sure where to post this, but when trying to upload pics from my iPhone I keep getting and error message. Is this an iPhone problem or can someone tell me how to post these photos? thanks !

    Top vent popping off

    I think I’ll order a new one and see how that works- thanks for the heads up

    Reusing lump

    I’ve noticed a huge difference between the brands and the ash, that’s for sure

    First beef rib attempt

    Just put them on at 1030 here in beautiful south Texas. Started a little later then I had planned but I’m only feeding me and my 15yo son so it’s no rush. These are just short of 5lbs, kosher salt and coarse black pepper rubbed. Will hopefully post pics finished product when they come off, but when trying to post from my iphone I keep getting an error message...any idea as to why? Hope everyone gets to enjoy their Saturday and cook some meat!

    Top vent popping off

    That makes me think it is sealed really well, but when closing all vents for shut down, the temp is still around 200 the next morning
  10. When closing the lid on my big joe, if both the bottom and top vents are closed, the top one will pop off, and if not all the way part way and I can hear the air escaping. Is this normal?

    Reusing lump

    I am fairly new to my Big Joe, and I tend to do a lot of quick cooks, steaks, burgers, etc. What is everyones technique for reusing your lump? I stir it around and pull the ash out from the bottom then just add new on top. Is there a better way? If i were to do a long cook would it be better to take all the old out and start over with new? Interested to hear how those with more experience do it.

    Direct fire brisket?

    Probably not going to try it after reading all the responses. I have previously done a butt with the deflectors and without a drip pan. It was fine but messy....i will use a pan from now on

    Direct fire brisket?

    Has anyone ever tried doing a brisket or pork butt without the heat deflector? Would it be possible to keep the temp down in the 225-250 range? Would there be a grease fire? I thought about it after seeing the open pit at Salt Lick in Austin. Of course that is much hotter and is totally open but just got my wheels turning.

    Leak finder?

    Well I finally got to test for a leak-the only place I saw smoke coming out was at the very top of the vent. Would that be an area of concern? Will try the dollar bill test next-
