  1. 1) Don't use any sugar in the dough. 2) Apply toppings sparingly. 3) Use a cheese blend with less moisture (e.g. scamorza instead of mozz mixed with romano) 4) elevate the za higher above the main grate for more even cooking all around.
  2. Barbecue Beans from Scratch

    I'm not sure of the context of the question. I always cook my meats overnight around 225-250 (235 average) deg F and into the morning of next day where the drippings are collected and then added to the cooked beans which are then cooked/smoked for several hours more (~3-4 hours) to fully absorb the liquid and flavors. If I get up early and do the meat and the beans together, I'll wait a couple hours to put the beans under the meat and then both are done by evening.
  3. Homemade Bacon; Cured, Smoked, and Grilled

    Made some bacon over the past couple of weeks. Turned out great. I'll be doing this again... and again... and again.
  4. Pulled Beef Sandwiches

    Nice. That variant sounds awesome too. Kinda seems similar to my Italian beef sandwich recipe.
  5. Never did understand the appeal of a kamado grill...

  8. My Latest Rib Roast Video (Christmas 2017)

    HAHA!!! Although I know it's fake, there was still something pleasing about having it on and playing Christmas music in the background.
  9. Christmas Eve Ribeye Roast Take 2

    Thanks for the credit! Looks great!
  10. I made this for Christmas dinner to feed a family of ten. I had just enough left over for lunch the next day, but I also cooked the bones down further to make a nice beef stock for soup later in the week. An annual end of the year tradition, I cook a standing rib roast for Christmas dinner. In addition to dry brining to help the meat retain moisture and add flavor, I also remove the bones (to use for the drip pan and to make beef stock from later) and tie it up with butcher string to make it round instead of oblong. The round cross section helps to ensure an even doneness throughout. The meat is slow cooked until rare and then seared over high heat to produce an awesome medium-rare prime rib.

  12. Pulled Beef Sandwiches

    I do this all the time; banking up videos to binge watch later when I'm able to.
  13. Pulled Beef Sandwiches

    I made this last Friday controlling the cook remotely while I was away watching the latest Star Wars movie with my son. Pecan & hickory smoked pulled beef sandwiches, braised in a dutch oven on my kamado, and served on buns; one topped with homemade horseradish cream sauce and another with barbecue sauce. Simply awesome! Recipe Ingredients: One 3 lb chuck roast 1 large onion 2 large peppers, mild/med/hot whatever Sprigs of thyme and oregano coarse salt black pepper Burger Buns Horseradish Cream Sauce Optional dark beer for additional braising liquid if necessary.

  14. The president of Weber called me.

    Excellent. I really like that the head of a company calls to apologize about poor product quality and customer services issues. I wish I had a similar encounter regarding my cooker...
  15. New Kamado Joe owner IL

    That's what I experienced there too. :( That's why I never went back there.
