  1. Looks awesome bosco!! What cut of meat did you use for the carne asada? Also, what did you marinate it in? The wife and I grew up in southern California and we haven't been able to find or duplicate carne asada from our youth. Your pics take me back.
  2. I was just debating this since I pulled out a CI griddle from the attic that I received as a gift (link below) . What temps and time do you use when using CI? Do you think this would work cooking a pizza? http://store.weber.com/accessories/category/gourmet-bbq-system/1385 The griddle looks just about perfect. We tend to make smaller, individual pizzas here, so I use this: http://www.amazon.com/Lodge-Pre-Seasoned-Cast-Iron-Griddle-10-5-inch/dp/B00008GKDN You can see my setup from my last pizza cook: http://www.kamadoguru.com/topic/21833-pizza Perfect!! How did it go on the second pizza since the griddle was already hot? Thanks Kara, as usual, you rock!
  3. Keep it up John, you're doing it!!
  4. That looks AWESOME!! Can't wait to see pics on the cook and the setup in action.

  6. I can't wait to try a brisket, if I can find one. I hope it turns out as great as yours. Well done!
  7. Thanks guys, you both nailed my concerns. Sound like it will work but a Kamado set, disposable or otherwise, may be in order. I'm adding it to the Christmas list!! Thanks a million Adder and Rich!
  8. I know this is a slightly older post but in the same theme wanted to inquire about using pampered chef bake ware in the Kamado. The wife has a nice collection and I'm tempted to use it but am concerned about the staining, etc. Any thoughts or experience with pampered chef in terms of cleanup, high heat, etc?
  9. Welcome! Both cooks look fantastic!!
  10. I asked and the gentleman said they haven't carried brisket for some time and he had no idea why they stopped carrying it. Nevertheless, I'm glad you found a great deal and shared with the rest of us!
  11. I ran out yesterday to try and cash in on this deal but unfortunately my Walmart doesn't carry brisket and hasn't for awhile. Strange thing is, I'm just up the road from you. Was worth a shot and definitely appreciate the heads up. Meat shopping is almost as exciting as fishing, sometimes you bring it home and sometimes you don't!
  12. Those are the exact gloves I was talking about in my post above. I think they are great. That's awesome! I think our posts flew across at the same time since I didn't see you post when I posted. I'm glad you approve, the purchase is now in the budget. Thanks Wilbur!!
  13. Great questions because I was wondering the same thing. I was looking at these but any input would be appreciated. http://www.amazon.com/Highest-Rated-Resistant-Silicone-Gloves/dp/B00HLPXL80/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1438426242&sr=8-1&keywords=Highest+Rated+Heat+Resistant+Silicone+BBQ+Oven+Gloves+-+The+Original+Ekogrips+-+3+Sizes+Available
  14. Kara, you seem to have read my mind. My garden is bursting with tomatoes and was planning on making some red salsa on the KJ. I was about to start searching for a recipe but alas, you delivered!! I'll be giving this a shot.
  15. I'm with you on the Costco chicken, they're delicious and very convenient but you guys have convinced me to give it a whirl on the Kamado. I'll post when I get it on the grill!! Cant wait!
  16. So I've been reading this forum intensely as I've been trying to hone in on a Kamado to buy and found a fantastic deal on a Kamado Joe Classic that I couldn't pass up. That being said, I figured I would sign up here and stop looking from the outside in now that I have the equipment to jump in, so to speak. All of the information has been fantastic and at times entertaining. Just wanted to say Hi to everyone and thanks for having a great source of information!!
  17. Mate, I use to do a lot of rotisserie chickens on my gas BBQ years ago before I met my wife. But hers are way better. And we are in Australia so there isn't a costco here but our local BBQ chickens are ok, but I find them very oily. All I can say is I have heard about beer can chickens for many years but I really can't believe how bloody good this was. If you have never done it I urge you to try one. You won't regret it. I'm hearing you loud and clear. I wasnt sure if there was a qualitative difference but it sounds like there is. I'll have to give it a shot based on the feedback I'm seeing here. Also, I'll be sure to stop into the Introductions section and post there as well. Thanks for the feedback and thought gents, much appreciated!!
  18. I've been debating doing this but we can pick up a premade rotisserie chicken for the same price. Do you think this came out better than the rotisserie chikcen you can pick up at costco or a local grocerie store? Your chicken looks fantastic!! UTVol - I just noticed this is your first post. Please stop by the Introductions Forum and introduce yourself.
