  1. Sometimes you just have to look deep into your heart and follow your dreams.
  2. Also you can chain it up as much as you want, but if a thief realizes what it is and they really want it they will get it.
  3. Why is the rooftop deck a bad idea besides the logistics of getting the thing up there?
  4. So in addition to not reading the book, you also did read the OP where it says that he was very complimentary towards kamados? I also don't know where I judged anyone for cooking on a kamado especially since I cook on one all the time. I disagree that his statement in the book on steak really has much to do with the smoker he is coming out with. Now if there was a special edition Franklin PK Grill it would be a different story.
  5. I picked mine up at Barnes & Noble. I chose to buy online and pick up in store which dropped the price from $29.99 to $20.99.
  6. I would think that a moderator on this site would have the foresight to avoid using such a profane mushroom. However, it all looks awesome and I doubt anyone would refuse a plate of that.
  7. I just think it is funny that some people automatically reject the entire book when someone who hasn't seen the book says that the author doesn't subscribe to their preferred theory on a subject. It is especially goofy in this case because a chart on the inside cover of this book recommends the reverse sear in more than one scenario of steak cooking.Then again, the book covers way more than how to cook a steak and of course it covers different cuts and thicknesses which would necessitate different cooking methods altogether.
  8. Well the guy you are taking your advice from clearly hasn't actually looked at this book. In that section he gives the reverse sear just as much attention as other methods. After reading some of the feedback here and other places it seems like his steak book should have been about how reverse searing on a kamado is the one true way to cook a steak.
  9. I wouldn't bother with the lava stone. The stone itself isn't very durable, mine cracked into three pieces in less than a year. The cradle that holds it is handy, but you can find something else for way cheaper. I am sure someone will recommend that you visit the ceramic grill store to buy one of their adjustable rigs which I am sure are very nice. However, I never ended up wanting to drop that kind of money. I bought a $13 round cast iron pan from Academy and used a hammer to knock the side tabs off of it. Fits perfect and does what you want it to.
  10. It really does seem like people get obsessed with this all over the place. I goofed up the gasket on my Vision pretty quick and cooked on it for a while with it leaking. I replaced it and it sealed much better, but I really didn't see any difference in the foods.
  11. Good on ya and that sounds like a tough old bird.
  12. That picture makes me very sad. The guy is sitting alone in a space where there should be a bunch of people and there is nothing on the grill. Reminds me of a birthday party when I was a youth. My mom lit the candles and told me to make a wish. I closed my eyes and wished for a room full of friends, but when I opened my eyes I was still alone.
  13. The feed an army comment was in reference to cooking wings on the Pit Boss I have. It advertises 1540 square inches of cooking space so it could likely turn out a pretty large batch of wings. Five racks that measure 14x21 inches is a quite a bit of space.
  14. Also if @ckreef or anyone else is interested in dipping their toes into the pellet cooking water here is a potentially cheap way to do it. Brickseek can be hit or miss, but I was able to get this very large pellet smoker for $109. If you can find one in your area it is very much worth the cost. Using the method from this thread I should be able to feed an army with this cooker. https://brickseek.com/walmart-inventory-checker?sku=876324460
