  1. @CentralTexBBQ thats simply beautiful! the color is great, but what is piri? i have never heard of such a thing
  2. YIKES, sorry to hear you had a bummer time...chalk it up to the learning curve and keep at it! i COMPLETELY destroyed a nice brisket once... looked like a huge chunk of lump and tasted like fido's A55... @John Setzler, where IS the best location to put a digital probe? what if the Meater+ is used? same location as the standard clip/probe?
  3. oh... duh... pay no attention to that man behind the curtain who is CLEARLY not completely reading posts!
  4. that is an interesting process/idea... does a toothpick conduct enough heat for an accurate reading?
  5. that turned out to be a very nice cook!... great color and pert near edge to edge... i did steaks over the weekend as well... same method although i let mine run a bit too long on the 'roasting' part... the sear worked well, but sent the meat into the slightly overcooked zone for me... the rest of the family enjoyed theirs, but no one else eats theirs as rare as i do... when ordering, i always tell them 'as rare as you are legally allowed to serve it to me' 9/10 times it comes to me as rare/med rare
  6. holy SMOKES! that looks like a Modelo/Mexican restaurant ad! you sir, have included ALL of my favorite foods into a SINGULAR food group! VERY nicely done!! how did the left over fries hold up? i know they do not keep/travel well as a rule... cold, mushy, crispLESS fries will NOT qualify as a food group...
  7. HA! my lovely is from Michigan... sometimes, people from 'up there' use it as a term of endearment!
  8. @bushcraft_joe, I did some ribs on the Primo, and out of habit used a water pan... they were good, but didnt have the bark/crust i wanted... @SmoovD not only has a great avatar, but also has more kamado joojoo than me... good luck! dont forget the break test!!
  9. no kidding?! shows you how often I go into one... my lovely likes it and my kids shop there almost exclusively... i think i've been in one maybe 2x i'll have to check it out...
  10. ** Homer Simpson voice ON** mmmmmm.... pizza hut... i'll never lose my love for you! **Homer Simpson voice OFF**
  11. Is that the same Aldi grocery store that we have here in the states? i knew they sold other stuff such as patio furniture and such... similar to kroger, but did not know they were hawking kamados too interesting
  12. I'm in with @TheMerlin486... while i do not own a KJ, i believe that most of the units coming out these days are reproductions of other peoples stuff with slight changes to get patents/avoid infringement... there are several instances where party A states that this part does not work with this model, but party B (usually a shadetree/curious type) finds out its all bunk unless you KNOW an AMC 304 is the same engine as the AMC 360, you would think that theyre different animals... i would try a cheap rack that you KNOW will fit a KJ, and see if it works on your goose... WELCOME FROM GA!
  13. I agree with @philpom... thats almost like a breech lock for a pistol and sounds like a great idea... problem is, with chuckleheads like the common thief, if they want something you have and they are NOT able to swipe it, then the typical recourse is to damage/destroy it... I understand that people live where they live for various reasons... maybe hold off on the ceramic in in lieu of a less expensive kettle...? save yourself the expense and aggravation of being burgled or vandalized and wait until you have a more single-family structure that allows you to lay claim to that which is YOURS just my .02
  14. @BowersBackyard, if you get acart and build a table later, you can use your cart as an accessory... thats what I am planning... cover the top of the now cart with some stainless (i have a source) and wrap the edges like OEM... then i will have a rolling accessory table by my rolling grill aircraft carrier
  15. thats how i do mine (less the CI pan)... the pan will add the glorious finish... remember to protect your hands!
