  1. I don't think so, with that weight they will be "quick". Use an instant read probe and check after 6 hours at 225.
  2. DIY security system - Anyone else?

    Ah yes, the good old standby, a dog. We have two 85lb doberman pinschers. For some reason when we take them for walks people always move to the other side of the road.... They generally like strangers when they are away from home but not really when they are home. Temperament: Obedient, Fearless, Intelligent, Alert, Energetic, Loyal, Confident
  3. Looks great! Yes, it's so easy to hold temp for a very long time with my Primo but I'm doing a quick sear on some sous vide chops tonight! Do pizza on it every week or two, that may help your mold issue. I've never had that problem but I cook on my Primo 3-4 times a week.
  4. DIY security system - Anyone else?

    I didn't want to have to pay every month for service so a major driver fr the system I got was to be able to self monitor. The system is 3g/4g and everything has battery backup so cutting lines won't stop it from working. It can call and/or text 6 different #'s and I can set specific zones to call specific #'s for example if zone 1 was the panic button in my bedroom I set zone 1 to dial 911 and it delivers the message. If zone 2 was parameter sensors then I just have it call me and if I don't answer it can escalate to another # such as 911. I avoided VoIP/landline options due to risk of cutting the line. The equipment I bought came with the sim card and get's me 100 minutes per month for $7.99. I added n optional remote keypad that supports RFID tags, this makes it very simple to get in to the house without fumbling with the keypad etc. I also included in my package glass break sensors, contact sensors, pet immune PIR sensors, key fobs, panic button, strobes and sirens (140 db WOWZER!) 140 db is the threshold accepted as were the ear experiences pain. The system supports 99 zones, 10 sensors per zone and 40 RFID tags. $5 a year to register with the city and get my permit.
  5. Just curious if anyone else has gone this route and what they are doing to avoid the monthly fees. I am working on a GSM system myself but will take me about a year to "pay it back". I called around and the 3 door/window sensor, 1 motion sensor systems are a joke for actual coverage (4 outside doors, 22 windows, two bay garage, single story home). Ain't gonna work. What do y'all do? I went with a company called Fortress, there are pros and cons.
  6. Put a face with the grill...no glamour shots please

    Was it the T-shirt or the hat?
  7. Man Cave Mustard

    Sounds awesome, I'll have to try this. I have played with homemade mustards in the past.
  8. Best way to cook tomahawk steak?

    I modified a 20qt cooler but there are many options including a large stock pot.
  9. Best way to cook tomahawk steak?

    That's also a perfectly good option, leave the pepper until the end.
  10. Best way to cook tomahawk steak?

    Sear it closer to 500 if you are concerned, I don't personally have any issue closer to 650. The pepper infused in to the meat during the water bath and it isn't on the grill very long. If the temp is too low then you won't get a good sear before the steak cooks more and you'll have a gradient of doneness instead of done perfectly edge to edge.
  11. Best way to cook tomahawk steak?

    Sous vide is probably the best method in my opinion. Salt, pepper, butter and in the bath for 4 hours @ 120f. Build a 650-700 degree fire in and sear all sides for 90-180 seconds depending on what your final target temp is.
  12. Greetings from an Old Chef

    Welcome to kamado guru Chef John, we're glad you're here.
  13. Pizza looks delish, great job, I'd like a piece of 3 please!
  14. Why I have two Kamado grills
