  1. The Bass Pro Shops flyer that I just got today has it on sale for $130
  2. Nice! Makes me want to camp again. Its been about 4 years since we last went camping. Used to have a popup camper but poor storage resulted in a damaged top, sold it to someone willing to rebuild it. Weather just starting to turn, makes me want to head up to the mountains!
  3. That looks great! 20 yo wheat...does that make your bread as rare as a fine aged Scotch?
  4. They look good! I like the idea of adding some honey and bourbon, sounds delicious! Your setup is pretty much what I used last time, grilling stone in and drip pan (no water). But I did use a temp controller, although I often don't bother as my grill will usually hold temp pretty good..
  5. Well, since the pandemic has eased up the stress on food supplies, I went to my freezer and found some baby backs from April that I thought needed to be cooked. Thawed 24 hrs, rubbed with mustard and Dizzy Pig Dizzy Dust. Put them on the Akorn, using the Tempmaster Portable. Effortless! 6 hours at 225. Probably ran a little higher the first two hours because of the weather (really hot sun on the Akorn). No wrapping, spritzing or flipping. Sauced twice in the last 30 min. I don't do low and slow very often, these were perfect!
  6. Thanks Daz, but I ordered the Jr. adapter some time ago. Used the Tempmaster Portable today on the full size Akorn for some baby back ribs. Perfect!
  7. Nice! Your money shot looks great, but the pic right above it makes me wish I could just dip a spoon in :-)
  8. My usual go to brand has been KJBB. I like everything about it except the price , but I still buy it. I don't mind the big pieces, sometimes I use them as is, other times I break them up. But overall I like that there is not a lot of small pieces and waste at the end of the bag. Burns well. A few others I've tried: Three bags of FOGO Black. More smaller pieces, and by far the sparkiest lump I've burned, it was like fireworks. Very pretty. Unlikely to buy again, but might be willing to try some of their other products. Several bags of RO. More small stuff, and the last two bags s
  9. Thanks all! She was taking lessons on the Akorn the last couple of months before she left. Got to where I didn't need to fire it up if she was over, she would do it for me :-) And she just received her grillin' stone and first order of seven different rubs from Dizzy Pig. She's determined to eat as well there as she did here! Her mom and I were kinda hoping for grad school at UNC-CH...but she is following her dream. The program and offer from OSU was just what she wanted. It helps that she has some west coast family too. She has a cousin she grew up with here who now lives in Corva
  10. My oldest daughter(25) has moved from home in NC to Oregon for grad school. Its a bit sad here, as she and her dog have been almost daily visitors here at home (undergrad was in-state and she's been living and working nearby since). Given the current situation, we aren't sure when we will be able to see her again :( Not to mention the stress of the arrangements to get her to OR. But she planned it well, and she, her boyfriend, and dog made a 10 day trip by car arriving in Corvallis OR last week. Not only successful but enjoyable, as they planned stays in small AirBNB units a bit off the beaten
  11. When I want pellets at a budget price, I get PitBoss Competition Blend from either Lowes or Wal-Mart, usually about $15 for a 40# bag. I think they are ok. The seem to do well in my Traeger, no complaints. Dicks sporting Goods has 20# Lumberjack at $15, 0.75 per lb. They occasionally have these on sale (not very often) for around 8.99 a bag. Well, they did at least twice last year! If they do it again I've told myself to buy a bunch! These are supposed to be 100% the wood indicated, i.e. not a 'hardwood' pellet with flavor wood oils added.
  12. One of my daughters likes Craisins on her pizza
  13. Its got cheese and pepperoni, can't be too bad unless you've got cauliflower hiding under there.
  14. Those look really good!! The tenders have a kinda Panko breading look to them. We rarely eat out, and when I do, I often order something fried because frying is just something I rarely if ever do at home. I would chow down on both of those! And kudos for no grease fire over an open flame
