    Really impressed with the stuff I ordered from John Davidson - the ribs were super meaty, great quality and cut just right. Chicken wings were good value too.

    After @The Chairmaker’s recommendation I put my first order in this week - should be arriving tomorrow ahead of a family bbq at the weekend.
     
    I’ve gone for some St. Louis cut ribs, some wings and a couple of their sausages.

    Will report back!

    John Davidson's has about the best range of brisket , steaks and pork that I've found anywhere. I've been using them for years and their selection just keeps getting better and better.

    an alternative to the Napoleons is the OnlyFire baskets. They make several models for rotisserie, as well as some charcoal baskets. I have one of their charcoal baskets and a wing basket and am
    happy with the quality for the price.

    The Chairmaker got a reaction from Boater in Subdividing a packer brisket?   
    Thats what I do. Cook the brisket and portion it when carving. I vacuum seal the portions into vacuum bags and freeze them. When I want some I defrost the still-sealed bag overnight and then heat it in the microwave for a couple of minutes.
     
    This keeps all the moisture in the meat. Beautiful!

    I could not decide whether or not to approve the previous post here or not in light of its nature.  I decided to approve it and then lock the thread.  There are two sides to any issue and I fully understand that.  But I also understand exactly what would happen in this thread after approving this post.  
     
    It's obvious to me that the previous poster is not here to participate in our forum so I figured it was best to just stop it here.

    The Chairmaker got a reaction from A.O. in Classic Joe 1 versus Classic 2   
    Thanks for that, but the info in that appears to now out of date. The Classic 1 is now sold with the newer firebox, thus removing a key difference between the old 1 and 2.
    For the £500 difference all you now get is the top vent (£70) to buy, the new seal (£70 ish) and the hinge.
     
    To me that makes the version 2 way overpriced.

    I have been threading to do this for ages, but the arrival of a full supermarket sized Indian only grocery store (actually vegetarian Indian only...) motivated me. I can now get any Indian spice I want and that is turning a lot of gears.
     
    I recently got set up to weld stainless steel outside, an awesome capability to have for barbecue tinkering. A ring bender and a whole bunch of 304 1/4" round stainless later and I was able to start mocking things up. Making a ring to fit in the divide and conquer rack is nice and easy, something I am going to keep in mind for other accessories.
     

     
    I measured everything several times, verified available space, did the geometry, and tacked everything together for a test fit, which was good because, it did not fit. I am not sure where I made my error, but the kamado would not close.
     

     
    I broke the tack welds, cut an inch off of each straight spacer, milled the cut ends concave again, and tried again. Now everything fit perfectly.

    Off to get all the right ingredients and then getting marinading. Look for results this week!

    The Chairmaker reacted to John Setzler in Kamado Joe is ignorant of the meaning of Memorial Day   
    Everyone gets triggered by something.  Memorial Day, being what was defined by the original poster, is also a very well known beginning-of-summer holiday where lots of folks get together and have barbecue and cookouts.  Walmart has memorial day sales as do many other retailers.  I'm locking this thread and i actually should delete it because of the site rules being broken by the language in the original post.  Just because you got offended doesn't make it ok to use profanity on this website.  
     
    @T_om Thanks for your service.

    If your smashburgers are dry, you are cooking them wrong of using the wrong beef.  Done correctly, they are juicy/medium rare, and dripping glorious amounts of fat!

    The Chairmaker reacted to adm in What lumpwood charcoal to use in a new kamado? UK   
    I'm going to try that Fogon you linked to. Competitive price, also with free delivery and also White Quebracho.
     
    The "blue bag" stuff in your logsdirect link is normally pretty good. You can often pick that up at a decent price at a cash'n'carry store. It can be a variable in size as you say.

    You know you may have got too far into barbecuing when you end up in discussions about lump charcoal brands! I now have charcoal anxiety if I am running low and my order hasn't arrived. I almost break out in a cold sweat at the thought of having to pick up a bag or two of almost certainly ####e lump that I already know will be in tiny pieces from the garden centre....

    They seem to be.

    However, they are coated steel. The steel is magnetic so I am guessing that they are just ordinary mild steel, so if the coating gets damaged then I would think that they will rust.

    The Chairmaker reacted to John Setzler in Soapstone Seared Salmon Fillets   
    Cooking a skin-on salmon fillet and getting the skin to a nice crisp consistency is a fun and easy task on the Kamado Joe Soapstone. You can also do it on the cast iron half-moon griddle or in a cast iron skillet on the grill if you choose!
     
    There is only one thing you need to pay attention to on this type of cook. You need to make sure the soapstone is not TOO HOT for the cook. This technique I have shown in the video makes it easy to keep the soapstone from getting too hot. You don't want to scorch the skin on the fish while you are cooking it.
     
    Here's the recipe for the brine I used here:
     
    3/4 cup cold water
    1/4 cup whisky (optional - substitute with water if desired)
    2 T kosher salt
    1 T brown sugar
    1/2 t onion powder
    1/2 t ground black pepper
     
    Make sure this brine is cold before you put the fish in it. Brine for 60 to 90 minutes...
     
    Enjoy!

    The Chairmaker reacted to John Setzler in Questions on the whole resting thing   
    Typical steaks don't need a 15 minute rest.  Maybe 5 minutes.  I have no problem cutting into a cooked steak within 2 minutes of it coming off the grill.  The juice retention notion from resting is mostly false anyway.  The meat will be slightly more tender after resting a few minutes as the muscle fibers will have some time to relax.
