    retfr8flyr reacted to John Setzler in Kamado Joe Tumbler Basket - FLAKING   
    Yea... KJ owners are mostly unappy with paint flaking and they make warranty claims over and over to get new kontrol towers (or whatever else is flaking) just to have it flake again.  
     

     
    I love my kontrol towers.  They look like they have been rode hard because they have.  My grills aren't prom queens and they never will be.  They are always gonna look like they have been worked hard.  Most people who spend this kind of money on grills want them to look pretty too and that's a problem.   If you want a prom queen, that Komodo Kamado should stay on your radar.

    I swore off buying new grills so I couldn't do that again but I never said anything about a new truck. 
     
    Me and Mrs skreef wanted to get a bigger trailer (a 5th wheel) and our Nissan Titan was not going to cut it. Back in January I started looking around for a HD truck. Ended up doing a factory order of a Ram. From order date to dealer delivery was about 11 weeks. Here she is:

    Ram 3500 6.4 Hemi, 4x4 crew cab, short bed
    Laramie lv1, towing technology package, bed utility package, and 5th wheel/gooseneck prep

    GVWR 11,000
    Max Towing 14,525
    CCC 4025
    GCWR 21,500

    I have had the opposite experience. I have had the Buletooth IBT-4XS for a long time and it has been a great unit. It still works great and the range is very good, for Bluetooth. I wanted a second setup, for when I am doing multiple cooks, so I got the new Wifi IBBQ-4T last year. It is even better than the 4XS, due to the Wifi and it's probe connections are designed to be water resistant. I think the build quality is good and you get a lot for your money. Everyone's experiences will be different but I think it's well worth considering for anyone looking for a good remote temp system.

    I have one I use mainly for  my Joetisserie. I got it mainly for this specific purpose and it works well for this. I don't know if I would want to use them for my main temp probes but it is about the only game in town for rotisserie cooking.

    I made my last pizza on the Alfa today... I made a 72-hour cold fermented dough and cooked this bad boy at over 900°F...
     
    Space has become a big issue here for me and I am getting rid of some things that I don't use frequently to make room for the things I do use frequently.  This is a true BEAST of an oven and I highly recommend them.

    retfr8flyr reacted to maroongoon in Picking Up a Traeger Timberline 1300 Today   
    After several cooks on the 1300 I am very impressed with it. I like the Super Smoke mode. I did two pork butts last weekend for the Super Bowl and they both came out great with a good smoke flavor and were moist and juicy. I created a recipe that went Super Smoke for the first 3 hours at 200 degrees then had it bump up to 275 for the remainder of the cook. I estimate that I only used about 8.5 pounds of pellets for the 10.5 hour cook. I am really liking the 1300.

    Welcome to the forum! Good first cook, it doesn't really effect the flavor much to finish it off in the oven. The meat has already accepted about all the flavor it can after the first few hours.

    Definitely, makes clean up so much easier and also helps with air flow.  Also, just shake the ashes out and you can reuse the charcoal
