  1. It's good to have you here, Mark. Hopefully, you'll soon have opportunities to fire-up your new kamado. Please post the recipes and photographs and help me get a new mental image when I think of Scottish food.
  2. ≈30% off. It's not an unheard of discount. It might be a seasonal close-out, or a product they are not going to carry.
  3. That's where I shake out. I don't have one but I use a Fireboard controller that moves the heat around in my KJ/BJ so I don't have a heat distribution problem to solve. As John Setzler writes, "Buy a Temperature Control System for your Kamado. It's worth the investment."
  4. @Boomer, it's been about 60 days since you last commented on this. Are you still drinking the celery juice? Anything new to report?
  5. @James., is yours like the one @jtemple pictures (and mine)?
  6. A cartoon by David Sipress in The New Yorker Magazine.
  7. Ingredients 1 New York Striploin ~1 Cup of beef rub, your choice (I used Pappy’s Prime Rib Rub) ~½ Cup of Worcestershire sauce (you’ll need enough to make a paste of a consistency that you like) Directions Trim all of the fat and silverskin from the loin so that the rub will reach the meat. Mix the rub and Worcestershire sauce to a paste consistency that easily spreads and adheres to the loin. Liberally apply the rub paste to the loin’s top, bottom and sides. Wrap the loin in plastic wrap and put it in the refrigerator overnight.

    NO Teflon!!

    That’s probably the heart of the issue. Significancy varies by person. For me, the question is, “How many non-lethal doses of any poison am I willing to consume?” Since I don’t know if the harmful effect is cumulative, I say, “None.” The city I live in puts chlorine in the water to prevent germs from living in the water pipes while the water is on its way to my house. But chlorine is a poison, so we’re unwilling to consume it in ongoing non-lethal doses. Consequently, just before we consume the water, we remove the chlorine. Many of my neighbors and friends consume
  9. I bought my fan for use with the original Fireboard from Auber Instruments, Inc. I ordered the adapter plate for the X-Large Big Green Egg. It fits my KJ 2, Big Joe fine.
  10. Consider doubling the gravy recipe. I wished for more the last two times I cooked it.
  11. 25 Jealous Devil Maxxx briquettes weigh 2 lbs. 12.30 oz. (44.30 oz.). That’s 1.77 oz. per briquette. 50 Kingsford Original briquettes weigh 2 lbs. 8.20 oz. (40.20 oz). That’s 0.80 oz. per briquette. The Jealous Devil Maxxx briquettes are 119% heavier than the Kingsford Original briquettes. 40.2 oz. of Kingsford Original briquettes burned and left 8.1 oz. of ash (20%). 44.3 oz. of Jealous Devil Maxxx briquettes burned and left 6.0 oz. of ash (14%). There’s not much difference by weight. I should have measured the ash volume, but th
  12. ~225° should be ~225°, irrespective of the smoker. Have you– verified the thermometers in both devices taken the temperature in the same locations (i.e., grate vs. dome) Are there any other possible differences?
