  1. 0-2 On Babyback Ribs, Help Please

    Bend test, pick up with tongs, when they drop to a 90 done
  2. First Blackstone Cook

    So keeping with our heart healthy diet. We decided on Big Macs tonight. Two all beef patties, shredded lettuce, diced onions, pickles homemade Mac sauce and ketchup on toasted buns.
  3. First Blackstone Cook

    So last night Sal and I decided breakfast for supper..
  4. First Blackstone Cook

    So yesterday was my loves birthday, instead of going out for dinner, decided to go to the camper and use the griddle. She ordered up her favorite steak chuckeye, grilled asparagus and grilled shrimp. This thing is super versatile, the steaks are seared on the entire surface, no worry about asparagus falling through the grates. Then finished with a few drinks around the fire...
  5. First Beer Can Chicken

    That's what this place is for... We all have failures, you were man enough to admit it. This place simply is a means to minimize them.
  6. Great morning to fish

    When I need to get my head straight, I head to the creek or the woods. No place like his creation
  7. First Blackstone Cook

    So with everything going on with sals dad have been away from the campground and the griddle, but hammered down tonight. Sirloin, carrots, purple cabbage, broccoli, onions, baby corn, water chestnuts, bamboo shoots and mushrooms sizzled in with Mongolian sauce placed over gooey angel hair with butter and parm. I need to work on plated pics lol
  8. Getting Enough Smoke

    That's part of the reason I use chips. I know the cleanest smokes are blue to non existent and a smile comes on when the stick burner is running clear. But i have no way of ensuring that the lump will light in the manner to hit chunks. So it leaves me baffled as to if a chunk is rolling. When this forum first started getting rolling there was a belief all chips would quickly burn out. I've went if I remember right 12+ hours on chips and there was still plenty left.
  9. World Trade Center 9/11 Memorial

    Never Forget!!!
  10. Well maybe not the first while seasoning couldnt resist, made me some breakfast. But last night decided on fajitas. 8 petite sirloins, green and red peppers and onions with fajita seasoning. One thing we did was add butter as we cooked, making it sticky. I am not huge on Mexican but honestly the best fatijitas I've had. This cooker is amazing.. I am so excited to cook on this. Ok struggling to insert pic
  11. Trouble Getting Up to Temp

    I have had it happen time to time. I chalk it up to a couple things. How the charcoal is bridged, smaller bits and pieces can restrict airflow. Every time you arrange charcoal it's different then the last Humidity, charcoal absorbs moisture from the air and may result in it being harder to get to temp
  12. Starting up, temp drop

    You'll Ru into it some times.. Imo it's how the charcoal is "bridged"
  13. New Grill?

    At that price my Christmas shopping would be done, buying every one they have
  14. Weren't you the original one with one of these when I was more active? I find my junior much more responsive to vent adjustment. What's weird unlike my big akorn using volcano method I light one spot. Lil guy I need to light 3 on 5and 5. Doing so I can get to 250 in 10 minutes shut vents as you show and she settles. This lil thing is super responsive
