  1. Got thermpro for Christmas. Used it on the asmoke, grate and food probe dead nuts with the onboard Asmoke probes. Used on the vision today, nice to monitor grill temp from inside on start up. Also got kJ grill expander. Box shows it with the grate on the fire bowl. I had the grate on the felt line. It fit fine. Test run.
  2. GF's sister in law makes Brunswick stew with a pound of chopped up brisket added to the usual suspects. Really good addition. Brunswick stew - Wikipedia
  3. Couple of Asmoke’s..brisket, fatties
  4. Probing is key. I did @ six pound butt yesterday on the Treager. 4-5 hours at 225. Put it in a aluminum pan and loosely tented with foil, raise to 250 for a few hours. Raised the temp to 275 last couple hours. At 190 on my wireless probe, I started probing with a Thermoworks instant probe. Read 190+ up to about 200 (several positions around butt. Pulled it as the probe was going in easily. The meat still had a little texture, but tender. Not quite a shred, more pulled. Another hour or two would probably have gone to shredded, if that's what you like. I can go either way. An old sch
  5. This appears to be a new offering. More features, probably built in the same factory, but different brand. Lower price than the current Asmoke offering. https://pitboss-grills.com/wood-pellet/portable-tabletop-pellet-grill-pb150ppg Recent review compared it to the Asmoke, found it to be an improvement. Still, I'm OK with Asmoke at the early backer price.
  6. I’ll be making these. Shure my outtakes will be.....just as good.
  7. Thanks, he does have a bunch of Asmoke videos!
  8. First lo and slo..Asmoke applewood pellets. St Louis ribs and baked beans.
  9. Yea, I think there are better choices for $270. But for camping, or limited space, an option. I ran 1 pound of Asmoke pellets for burn in, no problems. Two cooks with Bear mountain oak.
  10. This summer I backed a project on Indiegogo. A portable pellet grill. It seems to be popular with RV / camping crowd. With Covid, that seems to be increasingly popular. It also appeals to people who want to try a pellet grill, or are completely new to grilling. It would be good for single people or small spaces.They started out at $131, went $150 when the campaign closed. They sold about 9,000. It’s kind of a step sister to the Country Traveler smoker. So, I have run a break-in, roasted a chicken, and reverse seared a steak.. There is a slider that opens to allow you to
  11. I don't mind foil. I only recently started with the butcher paper. Learning as I go. So far I like the butcher paper, but harder to work with. Usually foil on ribs and pork shoulder. In fact, instead of wrapping, I put shoulders in an aluminum pan and cover with foil till done. Excellent results and it catches all the drippings, which after defatting can go back into the pulled pork. Butcher paper on brisket, although I have experimented with other meat. I find butcher paper does not stick to any tape very well. As far as the bark, I do not find either softens the bark
  12. That's what I bought, wasn't much more expensive than the 18". I use some butcher string to tie up the bundle. It's also good to put on the table when eating steamed crabs.
  13. I see your point, but some people want light bark, medium bark, heavy bark. One poster in another thread went as far as to say he and his wife consider bark an excuse to burn meat. The GF is that way with smoke....not too heavy. Wrapping is probably in the eye of the beholder.
  14. There is one, advertised here, that is how I found it. Can’t remember the name. They make a Kamado, I think. The cart is universal fit. Here it is...https://store.grillagrills.com/products/kamado-pro-cart?variant=31472923246649&currency=USD&utm_medium=product_sync&utm_source=google&utm_content=sag_organic&utm_campaign=sag_organic?utm_source=google&utm_medium=surfaces&utm_campaign=shopping feed&utm_content=free google shoppingclicks&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIteLOkvKt7AIVaQiICR088wz3EAQYASABEgJoOPD_BwE
