  1. Hope the bookworms can't find me.

    Thanks CK... You're always welcome to request recipes or topics or whole chapters out of any of them.
  2. Hope the bookworms can't find me.

    Thanks. Thought the Leg Lamp worked there pretty well. It's on a floor speaker, and the sub-woofer is just to the left, with an outdoor animatronic pink flamingo on it. Thought the flamingo might be sensory overload, especially with the Scooby Doo FatHeads on the same wall. . Have a bunch of iron pigs and stuff to add too, but haven't dug them out yet.
  3. Hope the bookworms can't find me.

    Yeah, I've cut back on this some. Now it's more of the specialized cooking that I need real help with, the InstaPot, AirFryer, SousVide, etc... I know that there's a multitude of info online for those, but I'm a sucker for the hard copy. And when I see something coming out from people I really like, I definitely have that "gotta get it" obsessive urge. You can pretty much put me down for a Pre-Order for anything from CHRIS GROVE, Raichlen, AdamPerryLang, Chris Lilly, etc... My kids love looking through the books that have a lot of pictures... Looking for new stuff to try. Trying to get them more into the process of cooking, but seeing a professional photograph of a legit grill master makes them want to 'help their old man out' more and more. There may just be some method to my madness.
  4. Hope the bookworms can't find me.

    Yep, got it. Love the show, so had it on Amazon pre-order. 3rd pic from top, just right of center, with a few other Raichlen books. Our library is is pretty small. Something about having an actual hard copy of a book just feels 'right' to me. Probably has something to do with my pops being a High School English, Drama, Debate, Speech teacher for 35 years... kinda had it in my genes.
  5. Finally got a couple decent book shelves and started to organize my books. Vast majority are BBQ/Smoking/Grilling, but also have some general all-inclusive books, some specific food books (pizza, bread/etc), and some specific cooking method books (sous vide, instant-pot, air fryer, etc). Including a small stack of really small ones, I think there are 99 books here, and most likely a few more floating around the house. Stack of ten Kamado books, but the top two are better than all of the others combined. Anyway....if there are any egregious omissions from my library, I'd be interested to add them. Have plenty of shelf space there to grow!
  6. Food porn!

    Dang.... Lot more work than I had imagined. Check out quik.gopro.com Watching your food video was really reminiscent of the one's from that app. This lady says it's really easy to use and the stuff she's made has been really cool (and free).
  7. Food porn!

    Love it! Is that done with some kind of "GoPro" app? On of the 'team moms' from one of my boys' best friends does videos that look just like that. She uses a phone, but then cuts it in with still shots and videos and the big word graphics and music and etc.... Just like this. She loves that app and has come up with some awesome videos of her son's sports. They were on a different Flag Football team, but it's the coach's wife of my boys traveling baseball team. I'm looking forward to some baseball highlight videos. The food video is awesome, IMO. A hundred times better than anything I could put together. Gotta love (some) of the tech that's available to us now. Ten years ago it would either have taken a $20K camera and weeks of editing to make something like this. I'm sure a few more productions and you'll be the Frank--Ford-Coppala of BBQ Vid's!
  8. Uuni pizza oven

    I really, really, really wish I could've found 2 people to go in on the 3 for $1,200 deal that they had going. Now that they're "pre-selling" some for November delivery, the 'package' deal is missing a lot of stuff... For $638 right now, I could order one... But then still need to purchase the Gas Burner and Cover. Could manage just fine without any of the other swag that came with the original deal. That would put me well over $700 for the "quad-fueled" unit with a cover. What's in the box Uuni Pro Oven Stone Baking Board (4 parts) Door With Thermometer Pizza Door Wood & Charcoal Burner Safety Gloves Uuni Pro Manual Allen Key Available add-ons Pellet Burner Coming soon Pizza Peel 14" Uuni Pro Cover IR Thermometer Cast Iron Sizzler Pan Cast Iron Casserole Dish Uuni Pro Gas Burner
  9. Joe tisserie failure

    I got the same one for my Blackstone (probably on CK's advice way back when). Amazon has them listed at $70, but priced with Prime shipping for $50... Heckuvadeal for a workhorse like that... https://www.amazon.com/OneGrill-Universal-Replacement-Stainless-Rotisserie/dp/B0043C5ZDI/ref=pd_sim_86_4?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B0043C5ZDI&pd_rd_r=JCW3CEY7XS62PCJAX1EC&pd_rd_w=2FZua&pd_rd_wg=Q7sEY&psc=1&refRID=JCW3CEY7XS62PCJAX1EC
  10. 24 inch carbon steel griddle!!!

    I just ordered something similar to this, but with a big donut hole in the center... 3/8 thick, not sure how big the center hole is... Got it in BigJoe size, with the grill-grate insert for $170 shipped. They've got a 25% off coupon thru the 22nd. Weekend breakfasts here I come! https://www.arteflame.com/product-page/arteflame-18-kamado-style-cooktop
  11. Arteflame Grills

    Just ordered one of these 24's with the center grill insert... 25% off, $170 shipped. Will see what it's all about in the near future.
  12. Current size of BIG-JoeTisserie?

    @Bachman 5 --- thanks for the measurement and picture. If they are consistently at, or just under 24 & 1/4, I will have essentially 1/16 inch to spare. I was wondering if there was any taper in the part of the JT doing into the BJ... I was thinking if it raised the part going to the hole, any taper would be enhanced by raising the connection a bit with some gasket. Seeing this measurement though, is encouraging enough to make me want to go ahead and order one. Thanks. I'll post if it fits when it arrives.
  13. Current size of BIG-JoeTisserie?

    Just checking in on this... What is the outside-dimension of the inside lip of the B-JT? Worded another way... What size hole do you need to have for it to fit safely? @retfr8flyr gave us a measurement of 24 5/16 for the size of that inside ring a while back. Is that still the standard measurement? The inside diameter of my older Big Joe looks to me, to be right AT 24 5/16. Is it tapered at all? My gaskets have worn away to practically nothing, so having a new thick set of gaskets would give it a tiny bit of play... As is, that 24 5/16 measurement is no gasket on either side, hard edge to hard edge. Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated.
  14. Buying damaged kamado

    This area appears to have broken completely through, and sloppily glued back together. Might be OK to use as is, but i wouldnt mess with it unless you knew you had a replacement part coming as soon as it is registered.
  15. Buying damaged kamado

    I've never hear of a 'ceramic repair kit'... Let alone a company recommending and sending that in lieu of just replacing the part. Being on the edge of the bowl like that, I can't imagine that holding up any amount of time. I'd wait another month and buy a perfect new one for $300-350. If you get confirmation that Vision will REPLACE the damaged bowl and would have full warranty, then $200 might be decent. I just wouldn't want to go through the trouble.
