  1. This has been a really useful teaching and learning thread. Now I know who to send my Kitchen Aid mixer to if ever I should have a problem. Very well done, Sir.
  2. An outstanding tutorial on just how to do what you've accomplished. I think when you've finished, you will have a better than new mixer. More than that, you'll know with certainty, just how and what makes it run. Looking forward to your completed project. Kudos to you for what you've done.
  3. What can I say, I like it.
  4. The resultant test kind of blew me away. I usually add butter (or olive oil) to a beef sous vide cook and have never tried it without, but I will now. I wonder how this relates, if at all, to putting a sear on a steak in a cast iron skillet with a glob of butter thrown in and use the liquid to baste the steak. Anyone?.
  5. Some amazing looking cooks you've had with your Mini. It's amazing what you can do with a such a small cooker. I've got the MiniMax and that thing rocks. Keep on cooking. Your photo's have made me hungry.
  6. . . . . "We have the money for a BGE and the demo comes with a lot of goodies for $850 (with the exception of a side table), but I’m very put off by the idea of it potentially cracking, mower throwing a rock, and moving it around the porch. This last weekend I spent a few hours messing with our flower pots and I hate feeling like I’m always seconds away from shattering something. Plus I don’t like overpriced accessories that are overpriced for the sake of being overpriced." Whether you get a BGE or the KJ Classic you will still have the potential problems mentioned above. Can you come up with a way so that you don't have to move the ceramic around as much or at all? You might just want to wait things out and see what happens. You'll get a lot of advice here but only you can decide what's best for you.
  7. I can relate to that. My morning coffee is not to be missed. There are consequences.
  8. I've always said "simple is usually always best". That last photo says it all. Count me in.
  9. I see you haven't lost your touch Jack. That cook looks to be just outstanding. Yummm!
  10. No ketchup for me but a generous sprinkling of Tabasco always does the trick.
  11. I'm with the salt, pepper and garlic crowd and have never seen the need to inject the butt for additional flavor. I'll add bbq sauce after pulling the meat but only for a tad more flavor and to keep the pork moist. Keeps me, my friends, family and guests happy.
  12. That looks really delish. While on a cruise a couple of years ago, we upgraded an evening meal by going to a Chops on board restaurant and they served pork belly as one of the appetizers. I wanted to cancel the whole dinner and order a couple more servings of that delicious appetizer, so I know what you mean when you say you could eat the whole batch. Well done John.
  13. That looks to be a mean grillin' machine Jack. What's your longer term choice of fuel going to be? Can you use pellets, lump a combination?
  14. Ahhh, Spring is in the air.
  15. For those of you waiting for the right opportunity to purchase a quality sous vide immersion cooker, Amazon's Deal of the Day (today only I believe) is the Anova Blue Tooth Sous Vide devices is $109.00. This is a really good deal. https://www.amazon.com/Anova-Culinary-Bluetooth-Precision-Cooker/dp/B00UKPBXM4/ref=pe_837390_238658350_dotd_t_6
