  1. That can vary from brisket to brisket, cooker to cooker, temperature to temperature, and season to season. As mentioned in the video, there are several places where foiling is an option and each can be determined by an internal temperature reading, but ultimately the best indicator is probe tenderness. I always cook mine overnight into the next day giving it plenty of time to cook and plenty of extra time before eating in case the cook runs longer than expected.
  2. Replacement hinge springs back ordered?

    For those of you that haven't noticed on my kamado videos, the hinge springs on my Kamado Joe Big Joe are no longer working to keep my lid open and have run out of adjustment after just a couple years. If you haven't noticed it in my videos, it's because I've had to use creative editing and reshooting scenes and voice overs in post production to minimize its impact on the final video. My raw footage shows my frustration in both my struggles holding open the lid while work and shoot and also has me complaining aloud about the long wait for replacement springs. I opened a ticket with them in July and just found out that the earliest I might get them in late October. I'll have a rant video on this soon, so stay tuned. In the meantime, I think I found a temporary workaround. Although it works, it makes my shake my head that I'll have to deal with this for another couple of months at least. Check out the picture.
  3. Kick Ash Basket - Worth Buying?

    I just got one last week and love it. I waited two plus years to get it due to the cost, but wow it makes cleaning out ash easier and it can get your grill to higher temps easier.
  4. Replacement hinge springs back ordered?

    Well I hope my ordeal doesn't last 8 months. I opened a customer service case on July 24, 2017 and just received an update that they expect an October 15 availability which mean if it isn't kicked out further I might get it by the end of October. That's going to be about 3 months of expected long waiting so far. Every time you need to step or turn away from the grill, you have to close it first. Then reopen it every time you step to or turn back toward it and still only have one hand free the entire time because the other hand (or your forehead) is propping it up. How long do they think a customer can use a Kamado Joe Big Joe without the ability of the lid to stay open? How long would YOUR limit be?
  5. BBQ Guru CyberQ Cloud: First Impression

    don't recall exactly but it was well over 500 deg F; maybe even 700. I'd have to check the specs.
  6. Chicago Cheesesteak Sammich

    LOL. It was an impromptu meal; completely spontaneous where I had all of the ingredient all at the same time. I only got stills of the buns being made and this final one. I post stills on my Facebook page where this came from.

    Tonight's improved dinner. The homemade buns made this much better.
  8. I just posted my review of the CyberQ Cloud on YouTube:
  9. Replacement hinge springs back ordered?

    No one is concerned about the potential problem of needing replacement parts for older gen models and not being able to get them?
  10. Pizza Making Tip: Multiple Pizzas

    Yes I do as well but only if doing a single pizza. The problem with parchment paper and multiple pizzas is that your pizza peel can only be in one place at a time either by the grill or by your assembly area (kitchen). This makes you have to go back and forth with the peel in and out of the house taking off or putting on the zas. This eliminates that concern entirely.

  12. Pizza Making Tip: Multiple Pizzas

    Thought I'd share a technique I've been using since the 80's to better manage cooking multiple pizzas in a row.
  13. Replacement hinge springs back ordered?

    Is any one else having an indefinite delay in getting replacement hinge springs (or any other replacement part) for the Big (or Classic) Joe? My hinge springs finally gave out with no more adjustment after just a couple years. I submitted a customer service ticket right away but was told there is a back order for these. I've been waiting a month already and still cannot get an idea of when I might get them. It really sucks having to work one handed all the time due to the other hand holding open the lid. This tells me that if they are out of stock then a fair number of others must be having the same problem at the same time, AND/OR they are no longer keeping up with spare parts for their previous generation kamados. If this is the case then I am very worried about the longevity of support for getting replacement hinges for older gen models.
  14. DIY security system - Anyone else?

    A bunch of empty cans on a string can work wonders. LOL JK.
