    iKamand first impressions

    I reinserted the old vent door behind the new one and it sealed that gap not that the small gap would have created a problem I just didn't know what to do with the old door vent

    Sous Vide Pork Ribs

    youtube channel Sousvide everything has a demonstration on how to build a smoke out of disposable foil trays that you might try instead of using liquid smoke.

    Air Fryer or Instant Pot?

    I don't have a nuwave but I have both an air fryer and a instsant pot while I like them both and enjoy fried chicken without the oil I would go for the instant pot due to the multiple uses it offers but seriously you own two KK's so why not just get them both

    Instant pot Mexican beans

    I copied your recipe tonight and it was awesome. Only thing I did differant was added one jalepeno and used coriander instead of cumin because I thought I had a supply of cumin when at store and turned out I did not. My my wife was just in the hospital because she had an infection and it was so bad that the strong antibodies Drs prescribed shut her kidneys down. They are working normal now but since her release from hospital we have been on a very low sodium intake diet ever since i did not see any salt in this recipe except for the salt in the chile powder so I thought this would be a good side dish but I made the mistake of using a ham hock for the bone which really infused the beans. It was really good but she was not able to eat as much of it as she wanted to. Next time I will use beef bones since I don't thing they are brined or cured it was real tasty. Thank you Philpom for the instant pot recipe

    Sous Vide Brisket with Salt n Peppaaah

    I've only sous vide brisket once so I am not an authority on this but you might try to put it on yor grill at 0225° for 3-4 hours before you sous vide it. That should give it time to absorb some smoke and set up the bark as well looking forward to seeing some pics on your second try because I know you will remember to take them this time

    Flame Boss 200-Wi-Fi

    I have flame boss 300. No problems with unit or probes
  10. That would be a major upgrade to the maverick and the igrill that Is in my inventory. I am finding myself using these less and less due to the Bluetooth range. Lately I've been using the flame boss when I am cooking on the Rec Tec (minus the fan cable) which works well for me. looking at your photo's I see no power cable so I am assuming that is is a self contained battery system with hopefully a rechargeable battery. That would speed up the set up to your cook a bit faster and less clutter in storage closet inbetween cooks. i am surprised that All Things Bbq said that the flame boss is not selling well it is a great product

    Lightning Brisket - What Now?

    I'm just curious, in your description you said you cut off the fat. Did you cut it all off or did you leave a 1/4 inch of the fat cap?

    Big Joe in a BMW X3?

    Maybe it would help if you took measurements of your cargo space in your BMW X3 and take your tape measure to Costco with you
  13. congrats on your new grill.
  14. Although the flame boss is wifi it does not need to be set thru the wifi connection. All settings can be done using the flame boss control box i have both, a digiQ DX2 and a flame boss 300, and I must say the flame boss is much easier to navigate thru the settings there fore flame boss would be my choice they both work as advertised so you won't go wrong with either choice but I like the flame boss the best
  15. I have been intrigued by pellet grills now but have had no experience with any. Recently I bought what I consider a entry level pellet grill thru Amazon.( i am not going to divulge the brand name because i have no desire to ill talk the company.) Needless to say I had nothing but troubles with it from the get go. I followed directions on how to season it and it performed just how they explained. Cooked something that night and then next day i lit grill up and was playing around with the temperature settings and seeing how close to the grill temp was compared to the settings. next thing i know the inside was engulfed in flames. so a few more days of experimenting with the temps and not being happy, I thought i had it figured out. Threw on a rack of ribs and 2 racks on the Kamado Joe just to see if any difference in smoke flavor. about a hour and half into cook the fire in the pellet grill went out(yes the hopper was full) Amazon was real good about this not only did they pay the return freight they credited my bank account before they received the grill. in fact they credited it the day before i actually shipped it back. I have heard a lot of good about Rec Tec grills and was wanting to buy this brand in the first place but was turned off about the $199 shipping charge but during the course of my experience with the entry level grill I discovered that if you ordered directly from the Rec Tec themselfs than shipping was only $99. and free if you buy the bigger of the two grills they offer(I think) I bought the mini model 300 and I must say I am very pleased with it. the high temp goes to 550 degrees and it does put a sear on (not as good as the Kamado,) and the temps are true its easy to clean and is definitely build with the aim to last and not to just get you to upgrade in a year or two to more expensive model. has same features as their deluxe grull cept for the size and no chimney (which would be my only criticism one think I really liked about the company that it comes with the owners business card which has his personal phone number with instructions to call 24/7 if needed and that is a nice touch I know this topic was about Yoder vs Treager but i just wanted to throw that out
