  1. Those look great, how did you do them?
  2. Just found this post, it's touching. I am a father of 4, it has been a very long road, 2 of them are closer to 30 than 20. Not a step father but in the same vain we did foster and wanted to adopt. It didn't work out for stupid legal reasons. We still write letters, call on her birthday, send Christmas cards etc. Our only hope is that the years we spent with her made a material difference in her life.
  3. Yep, just like chicken wings, at one time they were literally trash and now they command a premium price. Basted with 4 parts maple syrup, 2 parts soy sauce(or Braggs Liquid Aminos) and 1 part apple cider vinegar. I used Braggs on this run and it was great, I have also used soy sauce and is a safe bet.
  4. It was a rock solid purchase, not a single regret about it. I'm no fan of photobucket either, horrible what they did. How could anyone ever trust them again? I upload all of my pics directly to Kamado Guru now but that is a pain since I must do that directly from my phone or transfer first to my laptop. 1st world problems right?
  5. That looks like an amazing cook. The meat looks juicy and tender. Great job here!
  6. This is one of my all time favorites, I might reclassify it as comfort food. I didn't have any fruit wood handy so I used mesquite and that played well. The red, white and blue potatoes came from our garden. Perfect for July. I started with a heavy dose of Himalayan salt and fresh cracked pepper. The belly was put on the top rack once the primo hit 350 and the smoke thinned out. I basted 4 times during the cook and again after I pulled it. Pulled at an IT of 199. Gave the potatoes a course chop and layed them on a bed of chopped yellow onion with salt and pepper plus some fresh rosemary. I roasted them under the belly to catch all of the goodness. I serve the pork in a bowl over a bunch of those potatoes. A food coma meal!
  7. I bet that grill is a blast to cook on, I'm thinking not too different than an open pit with grate.
  8. We had a Cuisinart for many, many years and it worked well. No complaints at all. We would still have it except we traded up to the Ninja Ultima system which replaced the food processor and blender and frozen drink maker etc. We like multi-purpose appliances. It would be worth at least looking at some of the options in the market by Ninja. We love the Ninja Ultima.
  9. Almost 5 years ago to the day I posted an unboxing here: And a first cook here: The coven has been a workhorse for us over this time. It has held up very well and still works and looks new minus a little food here and there. The tank seals and adapters are in great shape, auto ignition works fine and the burners are in top shape. We have done everything in it from canned biscuits to from scratch cobbler to cake and pizza. It's cooked bacon and eggs, stew, beans and gumbo. Even a cup of coffee. The oven is pretty even but it's best to rotate items and when using both shelves we usually swap shelves half way through the cook. Here is the environment where it is used. Our vacation home is in the mountains and it works adequately in both hot and very cold (20's). We absolutely love this thing, it was an excellent investment for us. While you are here..... if you can find it this stuff is fantastic first thing in the morning while you wait for coffee and watch the birds
  10. Good job, looks great. I would love to blend heat in to much of what I cook but always have to consider the kiddos.
  11. That's when good ole bread works well if you need the delivery system!
  12. Mrs philpom is a lifetime weight watchers member, cabbage soup is what that crowd calls "the soup of shame". It's what you eat when you are not doing well. It can help some folks get back on track for sure. The thing for me though, it's a crash, whatever someone does for weight loss and health needs to be a life change, something you can live with forever. Veggies are delish, I eat plenty every day!
  13. Welcome to kamado guru - kamado Tom! Nice new kamado, congrats.
  14. Thanks y'all, it was very tasty. Combining sous vide with this cook made it super easy and fool proof.
