  1. I have an oval xl and a friend had the big joe. After seeing my xl and watching me cook on it he sold the joe and bought an xl.
  2. That's a beautiful setup that you have. I don't have a pellet cooker but I do have a junior sized kamado that I do the same technique with. This way of doing cooks, especially steaks, is my favorite way and really produces some quality food. I look forward to seeing some pics of your cooks in the future.
  3. Curious on the outcome of this. This has happened to mine before and was just as John suggested. Some type of sauce or something has gotten on it.
  4. Definitely overcooked them. I use planks and cook salmon a good bit and I found that if you cook with the planks raised a little more over the flames then go a little hotter on temp. If you lower the planks closer to the fire then stick with 350* temp. As stated above the internal is the true deciding factor. I pull at 140* internal and they turn out great. Don't try to time the cook as it rarely works out.
  5. Nice job Boss! I like looking at some good breakfast cooks.
  6. x2 on the Walker's Wood. I work with a gent from the island and he says it's one of the closest tasting to authentic that is sold in stores.
  7. I always do cedar planks with mine and just whatever seasoning I feel like. Done some yesterday and it always turns out great. At the end I use a good terriyaki sauce to glaze with. Most important thing is to cook it to the proper internal temp of 145 to 150.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Glad they turned out. They look really good as usual.
  11. 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.
