  1. My first over night smoke on my Primo

    You would have been fine with just the original grate. I've done numerous overnight cooks on my XL and have never had an issue with it going out. Glad you got everything under control though.
  2. Costco Roadshow Schedule - December 2017

    @Dub , looking good for us next month!
  3. Jealous Devil versus Fogo

    Good stuff!! I'm glad that you liked it and are satisfied with it. When it comes to lighting the lump, just place some of the small RO over the bigger pieces of the JD. This will help you get going faster and easier and there won't be enough RO in there to affect the smoke or the flavor. I do it regularly without any issues.
  4. Kick Butt on wings ?

    Glad they turned out. They look really good as usual.
  5. Jealous Devil versus Fogo

    I definitely will be curious as to how you like it.
  6. Jealous Devil versus Fogo

    I actually love the Jealous Devil brand and have used several bags. I prefer it over the FOGO only because it is more dense and seems to burn longer to me. The ash amount is about the same as FOGO but less that RO and some of the cheaper brands. The smoke flavor is a very mild one that isn't strong. Good lump in my opinion that works well. I think I have about 2 bags left of it.
  7. Nice work Boss! About to get out of work in a few and will be doing some cooking myself for the games tomorrow. Definitely a nice looking plate you got going on. When you get back to work, I got something for you to try on your next cook.
  8. Turkey test run

    Never done a rotisserie turkey before but I have done a few spatchcock. I've been close to that hour and a half mark myself, maybe a little longer.
  9. Reusing lump

    I do pretty much everything both of you are doing as well. Only thing I have noticed is that if I know I'm going to be doing a long cook soon I try to use all of the old lump up and use all new for the long cook. The old lump in my experience doesn't burn as long.
  10. ABT's

    Yep, that's it. Looks good to me.
  11. Simple Saturday eats.........

    Awesome!! I would greatly appreciate it kind sir.
  12. Simple Saturday eats.........

    Great, now I have to go over there and buy some of this rub!! Looks really good boss.
  13. Primo oval XL from Craigslist for free!

    That jewel looks awesome! You will have some fun with it.
  14. L vs XL amount of coal

    Go with the XL no matter what brand it is. You'll find yourself being glad you have the extra space as you become more experienced with kamado cooking. I have the Primo Oval XL and wouldn't trade it for anything.
  15. drip pan sizes

    The 9"x13" are my go to pans as I can place two of them side by side and cover all of my needs. Plus they are fairly inexpensive at places like Sam's or Costco.
