  1. All kinds of stuff on line of course. There is a Facebook group called " Makin' Bacon " with almost 30,000 members. Tons of great info and very helpful members. Big percentage do cold smoking which seems like a pain. I just hot smoked mine at 225 degrees on the Joe , and it came out great. Curing process is generally the same. The pork bellies at Costco are great.
  2. Comes out to less than $4.00 a pound. Subtract how much fun it is and it's like getting " Bacon for free"
  3. The bits are for beans and soup. Using the chunks for bacon burnt ends .
  4. Made bacon for the second time , came out great. Bought a 10lb pork belly from Costco. Three different flavors : maple , Sriracha honey , finally Bookers Bourbon and maple . They were all delicious and had very distinct profiles. Basic 7 day dry cure , 24 hour drying to form a pellicle , and hickory smoke in the Joe at 225 degrees about 2 1/2 hours until bacon hit 150 degrees. The hand slicing was a pain , I'll be looking for a slicer soon. Once you do this , it will be hard to eat store bought bacon again.
  5. 2nd pizza , was more traditional homemade red sauce , fresh mozzarella , Italian sausage , pepperoni , and capocolla ham , topped with shaved parmesan . 500 degrees 12 minutes as well .
  6. First pizza tonight was a little different but absolutely delicious . Homemade 24 hour dough , homemade garlic parmesan cream sauce,chicken, spinach, shiitake mushrooms , Fresno peppers , drizzle of chili honey , sprinkled with white balsamic vinegar , pistachio nuts , and topped with Burrata cheese ( mozzarella with cream and curds in the middle ). 550 degrees 12 minutes the Burrata melted and oozed over everything.
  7. 4th vote for the Primo. I currently have a KJ Classic II (which I love) and will be adding a Primo JR due to the oval design.
  8. I read that due to some design issues ( apparently Joe won't sit in cradle properly ,wobbles ), the new Kamado Joe Cart will be discontinued and not reintroduced. Does anyone know if this is correct ? Thanks
  9. I checked on my pre-order and it does include a KJ pizza stone, They stones run around $45 to $50 , so the insert itself is about $150. Makes it a bit more reasonable.
  10. I love octopus , but sadly no one else in my house will even try it
  11. Love beef cheeks , great idea. May have to go pick up some of those.
  12. TexasBlues , thanks very much. Lots of good advice on here about making pizza. Making your own dough with a 24 hour ferment in the refrigerator is a game changer.
  13. Do one greek style : olive tapenade , spinach , red onions , sun dried tomatoes , and roasted red peppers . Sprinkle greek seasoning. Might even add a vegan feta cheese.
