  1. Problem with white ash covering grill

    I should know if this was caused by charcoal or gunk on the grill the next time I use the grill. I did that 700 degree burn yesterday. I didn’t think the grill was that bad but maybe it doesn’t take much build up to make the white dust.
  2. Problem with white ash covering grill

    Yep I agree. Whether or not it changes the flavor of the food may never be known. For sure I’d rather not have ash dust on mine even if you can’t see it on there.
  3. Problem with white ash covering grill

    Yeah John that was my thinking so I went out and cleaned the Primo. Brushed it down good and vacuumed with the fire box out. Put it back together and did a 700 degree burn off. I’ll have to brush it down again and then next cook I’ll know if it’s the grill or characol. You dont think this powder gets on the food?
  4. Problem with white ash covering grill

    I will have to quit using it too☹️. I just don't understand why my local Walmart and lowes carry royal oak briquets but not the lump. I have tried Fogo and jealous devil with good results but I go through to much charcoal to justify the cost.
  5. Problem with white ash covering grill

    I've used maybe two bags of B&B with no problems. I bought two more about a month later, used one and had the powder start showing up. The picture is from last night which was the second bag. I use Rutland Safe Lite Fire Starter Squares to start the fire.
  6. Problem with white ash covering grill

    It’s not like ash you see in the bottom of the fire box, it looks like a powder that is coming from the smoke maybe. I have noticed more white smoke coming out when the temp starts to climb above 250.
  7. Problem with white ash covering grill

    I hope it’s not the lump because that’s all I can get easily. No it’s not mold. The grill looked good when I started the fire.
  8. For the last few cooks I’ve been getting a white dust covering the entire inside of the grill. The last cook was pizza. After the Primo reached temp of 500 I opened it it up and everything was covered in white ash dust. I recently had to switch to B&B characol because that’s all that’s available to me living in a rural area. Didn’t have any of this dust with the first few bags but now I’m getting it every cook. This has to be getting on the food also. Is this the lump or maybe the grill needs a thorough cleaning? I keep it very clean but have never removed the fire box to clean behind it.
  9. Primo XL Table Finally Finished

    Nice professional look, great job!
  10. Don't worry to much about getting all the lump going. What your after is heat, on most cooks anyways. Once your sure you got some red glow in the lump, get the lid shut so the Akorn can start building up that heat.
  11. 2.5lb + cowboy ribeye. 4.5 hours in the bath then on the Akorn Jr. All it could handle but handled it well. First time with a ribeye this size.....best steak me and the wife have ever had.
  12. Best way to cook tomahawk steak?

    This cooler works perfect for larger cuts of meat
  13. Another good video John, nice review....it will be much appreciated by many.
  14. I agree John, for what these cost they should incorporate a stand, a way to hook it or at least a magnet. For the time being I stuck little rubber bumpers on the four corners. Maybe this will help keep it from being pulled off the shelf so easily.
  15. Best way to cook tomahawk steak?

    I wondered if maybe being I the bath would make a difference with the pepper. Last time I had a problem with the pepper burning I peppered after the meat came out.
