  1. Cool, I’ll try that! It looks like it is bent completely out. Is it still snug without the spit in?
  2. Did you get this adapted to the jotisserie? I just got one just like this and noticed the difference in the brackets.
  3. I had the exact same thing happen. It seemed easy to setup, and I have an Apple extreme as a WiFi extender and an extreme base station. Everything else in my house connects fine (Sonos is even farther). I really don’t want the hassle of buying another range extender or moving routers from the office for a bbq tool.
  4. Gotcha. I really like the look of that knife. I have a couple shun premier knives, but I don’t have any like this. This new knife hobby is expensive. I just started sharpening and got a Wicked Edge system... I have been enjoying that part too. I sharpened up all my sister’s (all were incredibly dull like your sister’s) knives like razors, and they were serious beaters, like dollar store knives.
  5. Many of you are much more experienced with knife care and excellent knives, so maybe my question is silly, but what’s the big deal with cutting cryovac? Are you talking about the hard plastic on like electronics or like what a tenderloin is wrapped in?
  6. I just got a wicked edge field and stream pro. I was terrible with the whetstones since I have no experience sharpening. I scuffed up my Wusthof chef and Santoku before I got the WE. Man an this thing gets knives SCARY sharp quick, even as a newbie. There is no big risk to wreck the finish on your knives, since there is a vice mechanism with controlled arms that govern the angles used for sharpening. They have several systems and the stones are interchangeable. https://wickededgeusa.com/ Check out the edge I put on this old beat up cleaver.
  7. Just updated this past weekend. Big mistake. It bricked mine. In my iPhone settings it shows as paired, however, when I launch the app it acts like it searching for a device and it never finds anything even though the settings show it is connected. Terrible that there is no way to rollback.
  8. Cool! Are there plans to sell the big Joetisserie at the roadshows?
  9. Making the black pepper Parmesan. It is wonderful!! In the past, though, I went right into mixing the rest of the dough ingredients into the preferment the following morning. I didn't have time to do that this time so I just threw it in the fridge. It was in the fridge about 24 hours after the 12 hours at room temp. I decided to use it and mix in the rest of the ingredients after I took it out of the fridge and came up to room temp. I just wasn't sure if there was a problem with using preferment that was too old similar to over-proofing. He mentions 8-12 hours but doesn't mention putting it in the fridge like the other steps do. I have a proofing bucket, that I neglected to mark this time, but I have a pretty good idea about where it was. I am looking for about a 1.5x increase in volume based on the recipe for the bulk rise.
  10. I recently made preferment the other night. I didn't have time to make the dough at that time so I put it in the refrigerator the next morning. Can I pull the preferment out and use it? In Josie bakers book, there are several steps where you can let it rise in the refrigerator. I was hoping I continue the process without having to start over.
  11. I have an event that I need to cook 50 pounds of raw pork shoulder to cater an event. The event starts at 5:30 and is about 30 minutes away from where I live. My main question was should I pull it and then take it there or wait till I get there and then pull it. Any advice greatly appreciated.
  12. Anyone know if there are plans to update the top and gasket for the juniors?
  13. I have them for the classic and for the Joe jr. I really like the marks they leave. Another big plus for me is when I smoke salmon it makes it very easy to lift the fish without falling apart. I got the default handle with one and the GG tongs with the second. REALLY love the tongs. Mine stay on the grill for the most part.
