    wow you know I did read that on here.  I may give that a go too.  I prefer a nice rare steak.  Maybe is will aim for that on my next pork cook

    bosco got a reaction from StarRaider in Joe Jr - How long will yours run?   
    I once did a pork butt at 225 for 16 hours on the joe jr. without any issue.  I did not have to move the vents once through the cooks, which really surprised me.  For true low and slow on the jr. you really need to be sitting out there when you light it.  Once the dial starts to move, I start dealing the vents right down.  On this cook, the bottom vent was open maybe an 1/8" and the top vent was almost completely shut.  
     
    I had left over lump for a burger cook a few days later without having to add to it!!!
     
    The issue with the jr is filling lump high enough and the deflector stone getting in the way.  
     
    I have learned to turn the triangle deflector holder piece upside down, this elevates the deflector as well as the grill by about an inch.  I have been doing it like this when I need a full load and the deflector when cooking with the jr.

    bosco got a reaction from Chap Swinson in Will a Kamado or an Offset Stick Burner Produce better BBQ?   
    I really do not believe that a kamado truly replaces traditional bbq methods.  A stick burner would produce copious amounts of the thin blue smoke.  
     
    With that said, I don't think people get into kamado cooking as a means of being dedicated smokers.  
     
    I believe from all the reading on this forum that most of us are grillers!!  We prefer to grill meals that are not traditional to BBQ.  When we get our hankering for traditional BBQ ie. ribs, brisket, butts...   we can do it just fine!!  Our kamado can impart a nice smoke flavour and create in my opinion a moister meat than any stick burner that I have tried.  
     
    But I am a backyard pit master.  I don't consider what I do to be competitive and I don't do this for a living.  So, if you are a skilled pit master, you can make moist meats on anything you cook on.
     
    As for the main reason for a kamado... I call it the swiss army knife of BBQ.  It is a true all in one cooker that can low and slow, grill, and high heat.  It is also as true to an oven as I have ever seen, a true set it and forget it cooker.

    bosco reacted to John Setzler in Visited the Jack Daniel's Distillery   
    My wife and I finished up our road trip world tour of Tennessee the other day with a stop at the Jack Daniel's Distillery in Lynchburg, TN.  We took a tour called the "Angel's Share" tour that ended up with a tasting flight of some of the top-shelf Jack Daniel's whiskeys.  I decided to bring home a bottle of the Single Barrel Barrel Proof.  After the tasting, that one was my second favorite.  They were out of the Sinatra Select or that would have been the one I bought... I will get that one locally at some point in the future....
     

     

     


     


     

     
    I learned a good bit about whiskey on this visit.  I learned that I had never really learned how to taste whiskey.  I have decided to learn a bit more about tasting whiskey by tasting more of it and doing it properly.

    @Mewantkj not for me I am very happy with my setup.  
     
    As for the charcoal, these KKs are highly efficient.  They have an excellent airflow that is created by design and the vacuum effect that is created requires minimal air flow for great heat.  I can honestly say that my 32" runs no more lump than my big joe did.  Sure it uses more to fill the basket, but it lasts forever.  I spend no extra money on charcoal compared to my trifecta

    Well, my shopping for a lawnmower got cut short. I pulled the old murray out of the shed this afternoon and started cutting. TWO... yes BOTH of the front wheels decided to break off at the same time.
    I went to Lowes and spent $250 on a Troybilt. It's not self propelled, has a rear bagger and the oversized rear wheels. It also has a Honda motor that is a lot quieter than the old Murray piece of crap. So I finished cutting the grass and will get rid of the old clunker somewhere...

    bosco got a reaction from JeffieBoy in Covered Patio Question   
    I have mine under an enclosed porch as well. I am considering moving it down off the porch to an open area. I would think if I keep it under the porch I will have to wash the brick and siding once a year to remove smoke build up. I just don't feel comfortable leaving it out in the open. Decisions ???

    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 spent a great deal of time getting it set. Still a work in progress, however; it locks now and latches.  
     
    installed the dashboard and all components and we have a working radio finally. 
     
    we added tar sound proofing kit to the floor and trunk.  And this week we started putting the interior trunk together.  
     
    we should have all of the carpet installed shortly  and we will be installing the seats.  They could be resorted, however; dad wants to keep them as is for now.   We have an appointment with an interior upholstery guy in a few weeks to patch a few parts.  
     
    we spent the past two weeks looking for a passenger foot rest that needed to be installed prior to the carpet installation.  We found one finally so we can proceed with the rest of the carpet kit.
