  1. Are you telling me that kettle grills don't come with a ceramic firepot?
  2. Looks interesting and at a somewhat decent price point. What are your thoughts?
  3. I've held butts in a cooler for several hours and other times I let them rest on the counter for about 20 minutes before shredding them. I didn't really notice a difference between the two. I personally don't see why it would matter if you had sugar in the rub, some of the best pulled pork I made came from using kosher salt only on the meat. Texas brisket has awesome bark and I don't see many people putting sugar on them. I think that part of the fun of this hobby is finding out what methods work best for you. You said that you have done them both wrapped and unwrapped. You said y
  4. If you want more bark then don't wrap based on IT. You can check it at 160, but if you don't like the way the bark looks then don't wrap until you see what you like. When I cook butts overnight I usually put them on around 11pm at 265. By the time I wake up the next day there is a dark bark and the IT is around 180. Then I wrap and it softens up the bark some. I would also suggest a finishing sauce to add flavor and help with moisture if that is a problem.
  5. So you spent the money to buy a new KJ and you've left it sitting in the box for two years? Not even a tad bit curious to see if you'd like it better than the Akorn? Insanity
  6. Tractor Supply carries the Rutland version of this product for $15 per box. https://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/product/rutland-safe-lite-fire-starter-squares-144-squares?solr=1&cm_vc=-10005&st=rutland fire
  7. I don't ask for or keep receipts on the vast majority of my purchases, but I can't think of a reason why I wouldn't get one on a purchase like this. I'm not saying that MB is right, but why would you not get a receipt?
  8. I had the lava stone and it came with the bracket that sits the stone in the firebowl a little. It didn't take too long for the stone to break and I wanted a cheaper more durable replacement. I got this little cast iron booger from Academy. Used a hammer to knock the dadgum tabs off and it works great. https://www.academy.com/shop/pdp/outdoor-gourmet-14-in-preseasoned-round-griddle#repChildCatid=27890
  9. I got the PKTX about six months ago and I use that little rascal more than any other grill/smoker I have ever bought. I got the GrillGrates and I somehow warped them even though I don't think I did any super high heat cooks. Have the SS replacement grid coming this week to change things up. That graphite looks sharp
  10. South American hardwoods??? Not even once.
  11. I know this is a kamado site, but a PK Grill sounds like it would perfect for what you describe. I have a PK TX and I use it daily.
  12. Sounds like you should just go ahead and buy a temp controller. I had the PartyQ for a long while and it worked fine. Replacing batteries was annoying though. I was gifted the Signals with Billows and that set up holds temps great and eliminates operator error on my part.
  13. Academy sells a round cast iron griddle. Price must have went up because I swore I only paid $14 dollars for it. I first used the tabs to rest on the top of my fire bowl. Then I decided to take a hammer and knock the dadgum tabs off to sit in a cradle lower into the fire bowl. https://www.academy.com/shop/pdp/outdoor-gourmet-14-in-preseasoned-round-griddle#repChildCatid=27890
  14. I bought a Dalstrong chef knife and I liked it just fine. Eventually I found myself using my Victorinox chef knife way more. Liked the Victorinox so much I picked up their semi stiff boning knife. I also picked up the Ken Onion Worksharp a little over a year ago. That joker can get any knife razor sharp.
  15. I think I remember watching something that showed that a bunch of engineering went into the Slo Roller. One would think that putting a diffuser over a metal cone would have been figured out without the extra engineering work. I only have experience with the Vortex though. I know people say it is only for the Weber Kettle, but I have used it on the kettle and on the Vision B. The Vortex in the Vision beats the kettle when it comes to end product, but the kettle obviously has more room
