  1. Blaze Kamado Salt Water Test Round 1

    Since there are no ferrous metals used in the Blaze I'm not sure why anyone would think that exposure to saltwater would be problematic.
  2. BGE forum members? Ranier75

    I sent a PM to Rainey75 a couple of days ago but haven't received a response. It appears that he is not too active on the BGE forum. His last post was a few months ago and in the three years he has been on the forum he has only posted comments about a dozen times. If I ever hear back from him I'll let you know.
  3. BGE forum members? Ranier75

    Do you think his forum name might have been "@rainey75"? That's the closest name I found to what you had. If you think it is I'll send him a PM with a correct link.
  4. Flame Boss 300

    I agree that you need to keep the top vent open at least a little. In your case the fan was having to do all the work because you were preventing natural air flow.
  5. Storage for the smoke thermometer

    I use a Pelican 1170. I use these to coil up the probe cables for my Smoke and my Fireboard - https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B01L0XS5R0/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  6. Wicked edge sharpener

    @5698k You can also buy blank handles and mount polishing tapes and stropping leather onto them. I vaguely recall that someone was also selling stones that could be glued to those Wicked Edge handle blanks but don't recall who that was.

  8. Miyabi Artisan SG2 Knife Set

    I also have a small kitchen (mine is a bit larger at a butt and a half ) and do not have a wall where I could mount a magnetic bar. I have a couple of these which I REALLY like - https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B00286VJ3Q/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1 One of them holds some really nice knives that only I am allowed to use. The other holds knives that anyone can use. I also have one of these type of "blocks" in a kitchen drawer which contains my ceramic rod and a few other types of knives - https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B014QLR6X2/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  9. Grill brush recommendations

    Perhaps the early versions were somewhat different but on mine the front of the metal handle/holder/head has two cutouts on the corners that I use to clean the sides of the rods a bit better. Just flip the brush upside down and you can angle one of those cutouts over a rod and scrape away. The front edge also is "sharpened" and does a good job of scraping off the big chunks prior to using the brush part itself:
  10. Grill brush recommendations

    I've gone thru and tried many grill brushes and scrapers of the decades. A few months ago I bought one of these and have been quite satisfied with it -https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B01M29BJNU/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1 There appears to be a couple promotional offers going along with it at the moment so the price would be even less. The thing is built like a tank and the heads are replaceable tho I have no doubt the one head will last many years based on other brushes I've used with similar construction.
  11. New Blackstone Competition?

    The description on Amazon says it has a 5mm thick griddle. Commercial flat top griddles will often have a top that is about 3/4" thick. Those are designed to be run all day tho. For typical home use a top that thick would take forever to heat up. A waste of time and gas for most home purposes/cooks.
  12. New Blackstone Competition?

    At least one company sells a griddle/flattop for the Sam's Members Mark grill - http://www.griddlemaster.com/product/members-mark-full-griddle-top-commercial-version/
  13. If you want a separate dedicated little remote box with a display that you can carry/move around then the Smoke is a good choice. However, if you think you might add the Smoke WiFi gateway later on I would give a look at the Fireboard. Great little unit. WiFi and/or Bluetooth, six probe capability (probes are good quality and waterproof). Nice graphing/record keeping. Also has an auxiliary port that will provide for future capabilities (like running a blower fan). It costs about the same as the Smoke/WiFI gateway combo. Made in the USA unlike the Smoke which is made in China (if that is of importance to you).
  14. Close vents and save charcoal, or let it burn out?

    If there is just a very small amount of lump remaining I'll usually just let it burn up. Otherwise I'll snuff the fire out to save what remains. Using leftover Kingsford works fine. Just don't try to directly relight the used ones. Just leave them on the grate (knock the grate a few times to shake off any ash remaining on the old bricks) and dump a chimney full of ready coals on/around them. The old/used stuff will then light and burn just fine.
  15. ego outdoor power equipment

    I bought an Ego 56 volt string trimmer a year ago. Got tired of my old finicky gas trimmer. So far it has been just as useful and up to the task for my small yard.
