    Pulled the traeger !

    Welcome to the wonderful world of pellet cooking Freddy!
  3. Howdy fellow gurus! Thought some of you may want to hear my experiences with my new BBQ Guru CyberQ wifi setup... Ordered my CyberQ from www.bbqguys.com on Friday 6/28. It arrived on Wednesday July 10th (a bit longer than expected, but I do know that this is their BUSY season... so no biggie). Unboxed the unit upon arrival... everything was in perfect condition. Put it back in box til this past Saturday. Saturday morning... took everything out of box... plugged unit in... and had my phone connected to it in adhoc mode within a couple of minutes (very easy)! Next, I attempted to take it out of adhoc mode, and switch over to Infrastructure mode... to assist with this step, I decided to follow the instructions outlined at www.nakedwhiz.com... not knowing what to expect (after reading LOTS of different experiences on the internet), I was pleasantly surprised to have my wireless router and CyberQ completely configured and 100% functional within 15 minutes :-) Yes, I can now see what Big Joe is up to from anywhere in the world. Pretty cool. Soooo, is it worth the $$? Honestly, I can set-it-and-forget-it without the assistance of any type of stoker... HOWEVER, with that said, I was thrilled by the ease and peace of mind that I experienced this past weekend. We had a very busy weekend, and we were able to eat GOOD without me having to do much more than light Big Joe/ let lump get going for 5 minutes/ hook up the CyberQ and let it completely take over temp control/ throw food on Big Joe (chicken on Saturday, Ribs on Sunday), watch the progress from my iPhone/ and return when ready to pull off. The temp control is amazing! What I like best is the fact that I can light Big Joe and only have to spend 5 minutes waiting for the lump to ignite... from there I can turn the remainder of the cook over to the Cyber Q, and go about doing other things. If we didn't have kids and a super busy schedule, I would probably not be quite as excited about my new purchase... but with 6 kids, and a crazy schedule, I am THRILLED to have an assistant! Hope this experience helps those of you that may be on the fence re: the purchase of an ATC.

  8. If yes, whatcha use it for? What are their strengths/weaknesses? What brand/model do you recommend? I've never used one, but I know many swear by them. Bottom line...am I missing out, and do I NEED one?

    Bringing in a Yoder

    What brand/type of pellets are you gonna be burning? My favorite is Cookinpellets perfect mix. I buy a mini bulk order straight from the manufacturer. 15 40lb bags shipped straight to my door, all individually boxed for $370.

  21. I know what you mean and I agree. Pellet smoked ribs are very hard to beat. I recently did these on my pellet muncher. They were honestly some of the best ribs I've ever had, and they were sooooo simple. Even a couple of my harshest (most honest) critics told me they were excellent.
  22. 14k posts and THAT meal?!?! Someone's livin' the dream [emoji41]
  23. Nice!! Yep, the 1 steak at a time is the biggest reason I haven't taken to the chimney sear. This has become my go to sear station...LOVE IT!!
