  1. Do you recall the price? I may swing by on the weekend
  2. I love the maple leaf lump brand out of Quebec, however; I have heard that the factory burnt down. I am not sure how true that is but I am really missing it

    Carpet and seats are installed and we drove it for its first drive since 1996. needs a tune up, oil change and we now have a small oil leak. It also has an aftermarket exhaust that is seized on. We drive it to the shop Monday for some mechanical work!! but.... it’s road worthy and insured and appraised way higher than we had expected

    So we have been busy over the past few months since we got her home. first thing we added all of our exterior trim, emblems, bumpers, mirrors, a second antenna as the first one was installed incorrect and we broke it. this car did not come with a stereo when it was built in 68 so we added an original 68 stereo and speaker. the wiring was a total mess. We ended up with a new panel, switches and relays and we were chasing wires for weeks until everything was finally sorted out. We had alignment issues with the front hood as it was after market and we

    I haven’t updated this post in a while. We completed the body and paint work a few months ago. put on a new windshield and reinstalled all of our glass. fenders and running boards installed. we will have our hands filled with re-wiring the car. My dad has his electrical ticket so we plan on doing this ourselves. As you can see the wiring looks like a birds nest right now.
  8. the manual use to recommend a full wet cloth wipe down after burn in. There is a ton of oil that gets burnt off and it leaves a dry residue that will likely blow around. The drip liners are ok but personally I find that the edge on them prevents the grease from flowing into the grease trap. Foil is clean and works great. next cook to avoid any smoke flavour preheat grill to 375-400 and put the meat in. You likely tasted the burnt off oil profile in the meat. Almost like a creosote flavour in the meat. I can honestly say that I have never had better chicken s
  9. @keeperovdeflame A few things about your burn in. When I did my burn in they recommended 500° for 30 minutes. Is this 350° in their literature now? did you wipe the grill down after the first burn? Now for the cook part. Did you put the chicken on and bring to 400° or did you put the chicken on after 400°? I ask because much like your clean smoke from your Kamado, a traeger is very much the same. Anything over 350 burns very clean with very little smoke. Using the pellets that you used are mild and I’m a bit surprised to hear that it was too Smokey for you.
  10. may I ask how you cooked the chicken. I can avoid smoke all together on chicken. Perhaps I can help you tweak your cooking method for spatchcock
  11. a charcoal grill is an excellent combo with the pellet grill. You will find that a pellet grill can do most everything great. I don’t use my kamado much at all these days but I fire it up once and a while for charcoal flavour. I may end up losing my kamados at some point and picking up a cheap Weber kettle for the days that I feel like charcoal. @keeperovdeflame how did you find the flavour? I was surprised on how well the traeger cooked chicken. It’s the only way that I cook poultry now. @shuley honestly, a pellet grill isn’t for everyone, but like @keeperovdeflame
  12. You are going to love the timberline 850. It is the perfect size and my current daily driver. Upgrading to D2 was my best decision. I love the new variable stage motor. Having my first auger jam a week ago was an easy fix with a push of the button. No more disassembly. the double wall steel, upgraded door gasket and beefed up stainless grills makes the decision a no brainer as long as it’s affordable for you. I love the Kamado, however; I have only used it twice in the past year. my advice to you is maintenance. Create cleaning habits now. Get a small sho

    Paint was finished today. Now they will start sanding and buffing. Should get it back in two weeks I am guessing. Then our work begins again

    Thanks all... this is more an opportunity of creating memories with my dad now. I feel blessed!! A few updates ...
  15. Been a bit absent lately..... but for a good reason!! Ever since I can remember, my dad has been bringing home cars to tinker with in the hopes that I would take a project on with him. When I was younger, I always seemed to have a million other things to do other than hanging out with my dad. Of course as you get older in life you realize that each day that you have with your parents is a gift. My dad has always loved muscle cars, however, we both seem to love Classic VWs. My dad has brought home at least a dozen. When I was 15 we had 2 1974 super beetles and I really
