  1. If you can find this one, you might like it, but with the proof, it might need a splash of water, or a few small ice cubes. Basil Hayden's dark rye is another good rye.
  2. Right now it is in the garage and the D&C rack is in the the BGE. If IO could work something out I might consider submitting a warranty claim and when I get the part, selling the ceramics to an interested party.
  3. This is one of the best rye whiskeys that I have found. My local liquor store has a frequent customer promotion where you get points based on what you spend -- 1 point per dollar. These points are used to purchase rare/hard to find whiskeys. This had been in the program earlier in the year, but last week when I was in the store it was on the floor for purchase without using any points to purchase it. I have noticed that bottles from different cases have different proofs.
  4. Great looking meal and congratulations for 18 years on the job.
  5. July didn't start out very well for me. I decided to do a cleaning burn on my KJC July 2. I had started the cleaning burn and then about an hour into the burn something made me look at the base of my KJ. Here is what I found: I immediately shut down the fire and any plans to cook over the weekend. I still haven't ordered a warranty replacement since I'm not sure how I would get it from my driveway to the deck. I was also unsure of my ability to take the old top off and replace the bottom with the new one and reinstall the top. I also was unsure how long I would be without a grill before the replacement arrived. Therefore, I began researching alternatives. I was looking at possibly getting a Primo grill. I found two places near me that sold Primos. One had sold its last Primo and was going to start selling BGE's. The other place was closed on Sat, Sun, and Mon due to the July 4 holiday. I saw an ad for Ace Hardware, who offers free delivery and setup. I visited my Ace Hardware on July 5 and purchased a BGE, unfortunately they were unable to deliver it until July 15. Another week and a half without being able to grill. My wife commented that she didn't realize how dependent we were on the grill. On July 15, I received my new grill and got it set up. I even paid the guys who delivered my new grill to move my KJ into the garage. I then began the process of getting the grill ready to use. This included taking the KAB and D&C from my KJ and putting it in the BGE. They fit like they were made for the egg. Time to fire it up. I did some different cooks to get used to how it handles and how to control the temperature on the new grill. Some of the cooks were hot dogs, cheese burgers and corn on the cob, and baby back ribs. I was at my local grocery store and they had some beef short ribs. I decided that this would be my cook for this challenge. I seasoned up the ribs and then started the grill to cook them low and slow at 225. I was worried that I might have waited too long to start the ribs so that we could eat at a reasonable time. The grill held the temp nice and steady for the entire cook, which took about five hours. This has been a long-winded post at the beginning, but I was celebrating my new grill and my first attempt at cooking full sized beef short ribs. The ribs came out great.
  6. I don't know what you are cooking at 750, but I can get my KJ up to about 350 - 450 and stabilized in about an hour, maybe a little less time if I don't shut down the vents sooner. That temperature range works for anything that I cook on a regular basis. When I did pizza, I think I had the temperature up to 550, which was sufficient for my pizza.
  7. I had ribs there once from their location that is closed near my home. The ribs had a greasy taste. That is the last time I ate ribs at that location. Other locations have been better, but not the greatest.
  8. Welcome to the Guru. There are a lot of people here that will be able to answer your question. Have you seen this source of great knowledge on Kamado cooking?
  9. I have my daisy wheel set so the the screw is at the 7:00 position.
  10. I set both by bottom vent and my daisy wheel vent at about a credit card width. I can get it stable at 200 when I put the meat on. It will over time rise to 250.
  11. So who are the two lovely ladies who are enjoying the sun?
  12. Great looking cook, and congratulations on the new member of the family.
