  1. I use usually one or maybe two of the fire starters (I actually really like Royal Oak's Tumbleweeds) and if I am in a hurry - which is a rarity, I will stoke the fire up fast and hot with my LooftLighter. I don't use my LL in a fire-lighting capacity any longer - I have the older version and my arthritis in my hands prevents me from holding that damn button down for multiple minutes straight. I have a grill table with a 20 lb. LP tank under one side with a side burner. I just purchased a LP tank splitter valve and using other components I had on hand, made a torch on a 5' hose that I can now light and rest the head in the base of the coals for a minute or two. Might be dropping the Looft on Craigslist soon, the way this is working. I'll see if I can post a pic of the set-up later on today.
  2. Great work. I built my Big Joe into a table and have pondered on getting the Joe-Tisserie but need to make sure the drive motor will fit with the minimal clearance I have from my table to the top of the Joe's base. Now I may go McGiver and do this...
  3. Consider that idea stolen. Thanks.
  4. PM me your address. I've got a buddy who knows the owners of Grove Charcoal up here in WI. Can probably snag a bag and send it down there to you, if interested.
  5. Thanks guys. My grill table may be a tad out of level....I have times where it won;t want to stay up...but it's close to staying and then finally does. I bet that's the culprit.
  6. Jealous Devil tonight into tomorrow on a whole brisket. (will exhaust that supply). Still on sale here locally for $20 a bag....I will invest in that again, maybe heavily. Using FOGO Supreme (beige bag) for the first time ever on Sunday for 2 pork butts with some apple chunks.
  7. Back onto the pizza thread....has anyone used the KJ expander rack to get the stone/deflectors up higher near the dome to utilize the radiant heat? Guessing the deflectors may not fit up there at that added height on the rack and with spacers and stone (?) I'm likely getting the DoJoe before too long anyway, but just a thought.
  8. Nice. My dad's side of the family is all originally out of Neenah. Parents both worked at Mercury Marine back in the day. My niece lives down there in Round Rock, TX. I am officiating football in Howard's Grove tonight then coming home and throwing a 13 pound brisket on around 1-2 am.
  9. Found a good IRT locally...I ordered the double probe thermo. Thanks all.
  10. No - I actually was a carpenter for 26 years, so I beefed this up substantially and added blocking in the 4 joist cavities from the ledger on the house out to the beam. Engineered to hold probably double that at this point. The weakest link in the chain is the composite decking, which is why I increased it to have the joists 6"-8" O.C. depending on the existing joist layout. I also added a set of casters to the middle of the table to help spread out the weight via the contact points. There may come a time not too far down the road that we will redo this deck too. I didn't build the house (bought it 3 years old), so we may pull the deck boards and railing, add a waterproof system for the patio underneath it, and then redo with a different color and better brand of decking and possibly see-thru panels rather then the ballasters. House was built to the 9's...the deck was an after-thought when they were looking to sell, and they bought the cheapest s**t you can find from Menard's up here. When we do get after it, I may run electrical over to that spot and maybe an LP line from our house to have over there for lighting/side burner purposes. Side burner going in shows up next TUE / WED. Will run on a 20# tank for now.
  11. keeper....what brand of IR thermometer do you have? I'm in the market for one of these right now..
  12. I used that all last week and this week. Not going to lie....I love the hell out of it and the bag it comes in, to boot. I have the beige bag FOGO on deck next for this weekend's brisket and 2 pork butts in back to back days....plus running junior back to college. Going to be running like mad.
  13. I moved my table so we could get some stain on the back side...the decking flexes like a SOB if not centered right on the joists. I'm glad I beefed it up, I'll tell you that. Good luck.
  14. Where does that brand call home? (I've got family in Bend, OR that comes back every now and again with a vehicle)
