Thanks. It's produced a lot of great meals and easily handles four butts and a packer brisket. Don't want to see it sit idle.

Selling my XL. Priced new at BBQ Guys is $2,328 including tax and shipping. Price is 50% of retail, $1,164 and includes:
-Stainless cart (rolls nice and smooth)
-d plate racks
-2 large bags Royal Oak and assorted wood chunks and chips
Gasket is "well seasoned" but does not leak. I am not aware of anything wrong with the grill. The grill is under warranty. The only warranty claim I made was for a new charcoal crate. I purchased the grill from a dealer that used the grill as a demo for the summer of 2012. Many of my cooks are posted on this forum under my user name. As detailed in a prior post, I paid $800 and added several hundred dollars in extra accessories.
Email or post any questions. Thanks for looking. Location: Atlanta, GA. (I am selling because I no longer have the time to enjoy the grill.)

Thanks, after making this, I realized that Chinese restaurants probably use a lot more oil when they make their fried rice. I'll call this recipe the diet version!

We have combined some forums.
I think "Indoor and Non-Grill Cooking" should be titled "Indoor and Non-Kamado Cooking," as some of us occasionally cook on grills outside that are not kamados, and with the current title, it's not clear where outdoor non-kamado grill cooking should go. Thanks for all you do. I do appreciate it.
Nothing special, just a basic fried rice recipe with some leftover ingredients. Adjust the quantities as necessary, and add 1 cup of veggies as I did not have on hand, such as frozen peas and carrots (defrosted or microwaved), or fresh mushrooms and carrots shavings. A few diced green onions would've been nice as well.
-4 cups cooked cold rice
-2 cups diced pork
-1 small or medium diced onion
-1/4 teaspoon pepper added to rice
-2 plus 1 tablespoons oil
-3 tablespoons soy sauce
-1 teaspoon crushed garlic or 2 crushed cloves
-3 scrambled eggs
-1 cup veggies (pre-warm if necessary)
-1/4 cup diced green onion
Heat griddle. My gasser was on high for 10 minutes. Mix 2 tablespoons oil with onions and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add any veggies, pork and garlic and cook 2-3 minutes. Add rice, mix, cook 5 minutes. Make well in rice and add 1 tablespoon oil, then egg. Stir egg until thickens then stir into rice and mix around. Cook a few minutes, then add sauce and stir around until color is uniform. Done.
If you like your egg more well-defined, then push the rice mixture to the side and fry the scrambled egg until it is firm and then slice up with your spatula.

I donated my Weber C Propane to a local pool and picked up a nearly idencital used Weber C NG, and never looked back ... until I got my Blackstone pizza oven, and back came the propane tanks.
You guys have talked some sense into me, and im going to redirect my attention back towards a gas grill
Dont forget to buy a stainless griddle to throw on the gasser:
I can't recommend it enough.
Stop extolling its virtues. You're going to cause me to spend thousands of dollars to increase the size of my deck to have space to add the 36 inch griddle.
I like using a griddle-Q on my Weber NG. Wish I had more room for the Blackstone 36 standalone griddle.

Nice, plenty of side room for trays and stuff.

Looks like you will be having a great weekend.
I do the same, more gas during the week, more lump on the weekend (not sure I worded that correctly!). The only issue I see with a pellet for daily weekday use is everything will have a smoke profile, and in my case, my family would not be happy.
That is crazy. My lump grate split towards one end and started expanding, but it was replaced under warranty.

How many "secret" rub recipes do you have?
Thanks. Why did you decide to not add any garlic or onion to the rub?

How hot does the 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper make the pulled pork? Is it noticeable? Would kids who do not like spicy foods think that this rub tasted hot? Thanks.

Mine certainly wouldn't. Sorry no pictures.

I checked into the Imperial with the intention of purchasing it, but it is a project and requires a little bit more work than I'm willing to put into it.
The lid has several hairline cracks that do not inhibit immediate use, but could get worse over time and will need to be dremmeled out a little and filled with furnace cement.
The firebox, although functional, has several larger cracks, and was repurposed from a small Grill Dome.
I still think it's a good deal for somebody who is looking for a small kamado and has the time and patience to make the necessary repairs, and would like to own a piece of kamado history.
Does your rub have a lot of sugar? Could it be nothing more than too much seasoning?
The rub was basically half sugar have salt, with a little bit of garlic and a little bit of paprika. There was definitely too much salt, but I'm not sure that there was too much sugar, as a lot of rubs have more sugar than I used but less salt. It could be that the excessive amount of salt resulted in extracting moisture which caused the meat to turn hard and brittle.
Yes sir, and I'm scratching my head to why yours charred on the raised rack,
Just to be clear, they did not char. The meat exposed on the botton side, that is the meat between the bones, became hard and crispy but it was not black (my wife called it "like bacon" as a result of my overseasoning), while the meat on top was properly cooked.
I am not certain what restaurants do, but they likely do at least the following: (i) have someone show up in the middle of the night to start the cook; or (ii) cook at a very low temp so that if they start in the evening the food will be ready the next afternoon, and then held in a humidity drawer or wrapped in saran wrap in the oven on low for serving.
On reheating brisket, it helps if the brisket is reheated in a liquid or sauce. I have had good luck reheating in the oven in a covered dish with the sliced brisket sitting in beef broth, or reheating the brisket in vac seal bags in water with some liquid in the vac seal bag (either beef broth or the juices left over when I foil). When I prepare a thicker sauce, like a bbq sauce, I coat the slices in sauce and microwave until hot. Just reheated some that way for breakfast this morning and came out great.
My setup is d-plates, foil pan on top them and feet down on main grate then ext racks, Cook for 2 hrs at 225-250 then spritz every hour after till they pass bend test. I used to get charred bottom but the raised ext rack solved that problem. Are you running full load or just half the fire box?
So I had the same setup as you on the same grill. My ribs were cooked with the firebox about 1/2 to 2/3 full, essentially what was left from a full fire box from a cook the day before.

Can you post a picture of your set up? Do you use a lot of sugar and oil in your dough?
