  1. 17 and Counting

    Congrats on 17 years together. Very nice meals.
  2. Shave Question?

    @keeperovdeflame If you would like a decent starter kit, let me know. I got bit by the classic wet shaving bug about a decade ago. Spent way too much time and money on that stuff and have way more than I can ever use. PM your address and I will have a kit headed your way.
  3. Cooking in cold weather

    I always had big pups until the Gray one (Spike) showed up on my door step just before easter in 2002. Gunnar came along later to help even the odds with Casserole, the 20 lb cat. Even an inch of snow makes a squat uncomfortable and they let me know.
  4. Cooking in cold weather

    Im partially motivated by my vertically challenged dogs. I have to be out clearing snow so they have a spot to go besides the hallway floor because the snow is too deep. Here are Gunnar and Ms. Spike in the race track I made for them.
  5. Cooking in cold weather

    Cheers. I had a couple beers stuffed in the snow banks. No problem with shorts, but I hate that thing between my toes with flip flops
  6. Cooking in cold weather

    Cold weather is a big part of why I shelled out for a ceramic cooker in the first place. Here are a few pics from last February. Don't be afraid of a little cold and/or snow.... Compared to Canuckistan, it doesn't even get that cold here.
  7. Happy Holidays and Kamado On!

    Cheers and a nice plate of wings! Safe and happy holiday to you as well.
  8. Whole chicken on the Joe Jr

    I love my Jr. I have done a number of whole birds on the Jr. It can be a bit tight. I was able to do an 8lb bird whole vertically. I used a vertical rack in a cast iron pan. The grate was on the fire ring with the deflector on top of it and the cast iron on copper pipe fittings to give it an air gap. I cooked until the breast was 155F somewhere about 350-375. Turned out great. Depending on the size of the bird, Spatchcocking could work too. Sometimes it is just easier to halve or quarter the bird to maximize your space. Cooked raised direct or indirect between 350 and 400 F. Most times I prefer to cook leg quarters. Chicken in general is one of my favorite things to cook on the kamado. Here are some of my jr cooks from last summer.
  9. Improving a Cheap Lodge Cast Iron Pan

    @John Setzler Thanks for doing this. I picked up a 10" Lodge pan on black friday sales for $10 shipped with plans to use the same process. I saw it in a couple videos on youtube. I look forward to your long term results using this pan.
  10. 3rd Annual Free Table Giveaway

    I missed the screen name. I apologize but thank you for contacting me regarding it.
  11. SRF ribcap gold grade cook

    It still looks pretty awesome to me. Nicely done.
  12. Guilty Pleasure / Shave and a Haircut

    I have seen high school kids with better facial hair than I can cultivate. This is the only real option for me.
  13. Guilty Pleasure / Shave and a Haircut

    Thanks. That is the Semogue 2000. Next is a small Rubberset handle I reknotted with an Omega Baby Pro knot a few years ago and a couple of the Semogue BC brushes (Texugo and Mistura). If you ever get the chance to try one of the Semogue mixed knot brushes, give it a shot. They are fantastic.
  14. Guilty Pleasure / Shave and a Haircut

    It is nice to see others that enjoy traditional wet shaving. I have been using a DE/SE since 2010. I had a barbershop shave with hot towels and all, but do not care for face feel of a shavette they are required to use. The end result was good, but it wasn't nearly as comfortable doing it myself. Unfortunately due to some issues with my hands, I had to give up the straights. Here's a bit of kit I use.
