  1. I am in agreement with everyone else on here, is it a must have? NO. Is it a nice to have? Yes. Is it the first accessory I would buy? I don't think so, I think I would get a plate setter or something similar first. Congrats on the new Kamado!
  2. Looks great! If you want a great dessert to go with it, inject a pineapple with dark rum, rub with brown sugar, then grill it. Slice and serve with vanilla ice cream. http://www.backyardmovies.net/drunken-pineapple-on-joetisserie/ Sent from my SM-G930P using Tapatalk
  3. Yeah it is a vent for a furnace. Here is my review and a little video with the adapter for my vision. http://www.backyardmovies.net/tip-top-temp-a-must-have-for-any-kamado-owner/ Sent from my SM-G930P using Tapatalk
  4. I have a couple. They are just okay, I might nees to use mine more to dig deeoer grooves, but I kind of miss my brush. Sent from my SM-G930P using Tapatalk
  5. Each knife was around $150. I looked online and the dame knives were running $300 plus....made me feel a little better. Sent from my SM-G930P using Tapatalk
  6. Thanks for the tip. I should have solicited recommendations prior to our departure. I would agree these knives were very traditional. Sent from my SM-G930P using Tapatalk
  7. My family and I visited Tokyo over Spring Break, during the trip we visited the Tsukiji Fish market. If you have never been, it is pretty incredible, an amazing assortment of fish of an amazing size. We had the best sushi of our lives there. I also discovered that there are some knife makers of renown that have shops in the market. It took a day for me to make up my mind, but we ended up with a couple of knives. I know there was some discussion about knives awhile back, so I thought there might be some interest on the forum. I wrote a post about it here. http://www.backyardmovies.net/buying-tsukiji-knives/
  8. Where are you at? Sent from my SM-G930P using Tapatalk
  9. I got me pocket thermometer in and did an initial temp test http://www.backyardmovies.net/thermoworks-super-fast-pocket-thermometer-rt600c-hands-on-review/ it was well packaged and accurate straight out of the box. Sent from my SM-G930P using Tapatalk
  10. I really like having the IR gun around to take quick surface temp measurements. Sent from my SM-G930P using Tapatalk
  11. I reommend going with a clam shell one. I have one of the automated ones I got from Costco a few years back. The simple clam shell is more forgiving if you overfill your bags. The automated one really requires the 3 inches of excess bag. Sent from my SM-G930P using Tapatalk
  12. Thanks for the tip. I might have to fire up my fermentation fridge for this experiment, we don't have central air, so my house is rarely below 75 or so. I homebrew, so I had to get a small fridge to ferment in. I think I have some carrots I can try.....
  13. I got some of these for X-Mas last year, I have attempted to make pickles several times, but they have always ended up being a (moldy) disaster. The last batch looked almost edible, the cucumber slices were intact, but a dark bluish/green color. I think the big issue has been keeping the vegetables submerged. I know they make some fancy weights for it, but I like the idea of using the ziploc bag. I presume the brine is salinated enough you don't have to worry about contaminating the solution? I have heard of Sanor Katz via Michael Pollan and other food writers, but just haven't had much luck in my own kitchen. I look forward to seeing the end result. I thought the fermentation usually took 4-5 weeks not 4-5 days? Am I missing something?
  14. In Hawaii it is hard to source flavorful tomatoes. They usually stand up to shipping alright when they are green, so we have had good luck making FGT here. We lived in Colorado before here and I would have tons of green tomatoes on the plant when the first freeze came. We loved fried green tomatoes. I wonder how they taste on a burger, I will also be trying them out on a pizza. Sent from my SM-G930P using Tapatalk
  15. One of these days she is going to turn the tables on me, she has much more expensive taste than I do...after all she married me! Sent from my SM-G930P using Tapatalk
