  2. Third Akorn cook: leftover pizza!

    When you upload to imgur select edit and use 640 for the image and keep proportion checked and select "save" and that will resolve the picture size problem.
  3. Using Alcohol Soaked Cotton Balls To Lite Lump

    Squeeze them out perhaps, they should light super easy. You should use the alcohol with the higher percentage of alcohol in it. I believe that you can get 90% at the drug store. I get 99.9% from work. Don't use the kind that you can drink, that is alcohol abuse, and wasteful.
  4. Stupid newbie question

    Cool, will do.
  5. First Time Long Time,,, well no not really

    Welcome Houston neighbor, Kingwood here. Learning to slow things down produces the best results especially when you are cooking something low and slow.
  6. Looks damn good, I'm going to have to steal your veggies under the chicken method, I love me some caramelized grilled onions, and that skin looks perfect. Sound like you knocked it out of the park on your first at bat. It only gets better as the pit gets more season and smoke built into it and you master each of your favorite meats.
  7. More Spring Pics

    Nice backyard, I love me some spring too
  8. Stupid newbie question

    I'll have to try the alcohol simply because it sounds less messy and easier to work with, however use of either in my opinion and with the miniscule amount needed would be totally burnt off by the time it takes to get the pit up to temp leaving absolutely no residue or trace behind. One might as well say don't use matches because of the awful sulfur taste it imparts.
  9. I know nothing!

    I counted 9 temps you want him to hit, that is a lot of beer. Perhaps a cold one for every 2 temps he hits, otherwise he may not remember how he hit them and may burn the house down, lol. Remember, I told him a twelver! If ya can't run with the Big Dawgs ... :D Kamado cooking ain't for the faint of heart or the easily inebriated! haha, good point
  10. That isn't paint, that is just the seasoning mixed in with oils and smoke from your latest cooks. Just brush it off with a wire grate cleaning brush. The better seasoned your pit becomes the less often you'll see it.

  12. Vision Kamado ribs

    Excellent, nice video and great looking ribs, mate.
  13. Yes looks great. What does that cut run per pound?
  14. Stupid newbie question

    One way to light lump coal that works well is: Take 1 or 2 cotton balls and rub them in Valvoline petroleum jelly. Just get enough to coat the outside of one side of the cotton ball. Work the jelly into the cotton ball, it just takes about 10 seconds. You can stretch out the cotton ball a bit like a wick, place it in the middle of your lump coal and light with it in place. It lights very easily and will burn long enough to get the lump coal burning.
