  1. Howdy Gurus. I'm thinking of purchasing some type of software whereby I can dictate what I want input into my computer. One such package is Dragon Dictate by Nuance Software. Does anyone here have any experience with dictation software? If so, what was/is your take on this? What package did you use? Would you purchase again? What are the package strengths and/or weaknesses from your perspective? The reason I'm thinking of purchasing this type of software is that my skills on a keyboard are, in a word, abysmal. I never took so much as a single typing course way back when. Whatever f
  2. Gurus, Another guru asked me to tell him/her about my 2 Qt. Dutch Oven Cast Iron smoke pot. I couldn't find the previous post on this, so I'm reposting it in an abbreviated form. I also couldn't get back to the original post where the Guru asked about the smoke pot. So, mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa for you good folks having to click through this again. Here is the basic 2 Qt Cast Iron Dutch Oven; as you can see it's a Lodge. Here is a shot with the cover removed. You can see some of the 1/8" holes drilled in the bottom. And finally here is a shot sho
  3. I finally got around ordering my rotisserie motor from One Grill a company that specializes in rotisserie equipment and it came in today! I've been looking forward to this day since Beauty! arrived with the rotisserie basket for TheBeast. Here are a few pics of the rotisserie motor and one of the basket. Front view: Notice that this specific motor indicated that it can spin 50 pounds of meet at once! This is no light-weight motor. Of course, nothing about TheBeast is light-weight! Here is a side panel that details a one-year warranty: I would have preferred a
  4. I hear from sources on the KK Forum that there is a $50 discount on one of their units. It brings the price down to $129! Use code LUVDAD for the discount. IF this doesn't get you off the fence, nothing will! Enjoy!
  5. I had my nephew Shaun over for dinner this evening. He just finished pilot training down in San Antonio after graduating from The United States Air Force Academy last May. He's staying with my brother, the one who lives about 100 yards down the road. You know him, he's the BBQ Mooch who has recycled the same bag of chips for the last nine months! So I decided to use up a Tri-Tip that I'd had in the refrigerator. I also decided to give Shaun a taste treat ... he's a bachelor. I found out today that all he eats every evening is steak, generally NY Strips. So, I'm thinking it time to
  6. Howdy Gurus! Kamado Guru has the Seafood Challenge this month and I'm officially entering with my version of Salade Nicoise. Salade Nicoise is a classical french salade/meal from the area surrounding the town of Nice, hence the appellation Nicoise. Classical Salade Nicoise is made with Eggs, Olives, Tuna, and other garden greens. I'm not big on eggs in my salad, and I had some salmon in the fridge, so I took liberties with the classical French rendition and I've dubbed my concoction Grilled Sooner Seafood Salade Nicoise as an homage to the classic. First we start off with boiling po
  7. Howdy Gurus! This weekend officially starts the summer season. For those fair-weather grillers (which is nobody here!), this weekend is when all the charcoal sales, grill sales, meat sales kick into high gear. GRILLING SEASON HAS OFFICIALLY BEGUN! Many of us will be traveling this weekend. Many of us will be camping out this weekend. Please, be safe, don't drink and drive, and come back to KG safe and sound! Finally, Memorial Weekend is all about remember those among us who gave the last full measure of devotion to a cause, freedom, so that we could enjoy everything wit
  8. Gurus! I could not be more proud of my Granddaughter, Cailey. As you may remember, she's one of The Ladies we have discussed here. Along with her younger sister, Gracie, I've been teaching both The Ladies to cook on Beauty! & TheBeast. And they are making good progress. But that's not why the buttons are busting off my vest. Cailey struggles with math, specifically algebra. I understand that all too well as I struggled with algebra myself. I told Cailey if she would meet with me on Tuesdays and Thursdays, I would teach her algebra. I also told her to do the problems exactly as I ta

  11. Howdy Gurus! I promised a new Guru to our group that I would find and publish a guide to woods that can be used for smoking, what those woods are best applied to, etc. Well, I can't find the dadgummed file. Not to be a slacker, below are a couple of links that solve the problem and give some guidance as to what wood works best for a specific application. Google is a very good thing! Dee Jay's Smoke Pit Virtual Weber Bullet Amazing Ribs has a pretty good discussion of the Zen of Smoke. I hope this helps one and all!
  12. Hi Again, Gurus! So last Saturday, SWMBOI is watching TV and "napping" in the bedroom while I'm Watching baseball on the Big Screen. All of a sudden, at a critical juncture on the ball game (doesn't every interruption happen at some critical point?) SWMBOI comes and switches the TV to an infomercials about the NuWave Induction Cooktop. AAAARRRRGGGHHHH! This had better be dadgummed good! She tell me to watch! SWMBOI knows I've been looking at induction stoves here for the house, but as little as we use a stove, I'll be dipped if I'm spending that kind of money on a new stove. (These th
  13. ... ruled by idiots! And they're breeding! And producing dumber idiots quicker than they're dying off!! Who are these people that now cause me to gnash my teeth to nubs? Okay, the background. As I've said time and again, I can't get weeds to grow. I have a black thumb! But SWMBOI can get dead twigs to sprout into might oak trees without effort! We were at Sam's and SWMBOI see a planter that she wants. So, being ever mindful that if SWMBOI is happy, CC is happy, too! So I buy this planter. SWMBOI is happy. I get it some. Some assembly required, batteries not included. I get
  14. Howdy Gurus! Monday evening, I looked in the freezer to see what I had for dinner on Tuesday evening. There was a chuck roast, almost the last of a cow my brother and I had slaughtered and butchered. I pulled it and thawed it. Below are the results of yesterday's cook. Here is a picture of the guest of honor right out of the package. I decided to lay some smoke, peach smoke specifically, on the chuckie. I got this at Academy. I only used a couple of pieces directly in the heart of the lit lump. I was doing this indirect, hence the heat deflector. I"ll be laying
  15. Gurus - I simply HATE autocorrect! I hate it, hate it, HATE IT! I'm so tired of having my computer tell me that I'm an idiot and think I need to be constantly corrected! Take for example our esteemed Guru gerrell. MY computer thins I should substitute guerrilla in place of my friend's screen name. I just had to edit a post where it changed my "gerrell" to "guerrilla" without any prompting on my part. And the dadgummed computer STILL want to do it! Anyone ever read Damn You Auto Correct! And this freaking Net Nun software will probably change D_A_M_N to Darn. And I understand
  16. Howdy Gurus! Well, I was sitting around thinking about Wednesday evening's dinner and thought that I haven't used my Anova Sous Vide in q few weeks. Time to get the hot water to meet the NY Strips. The first thing I did was season the NY Strips with S&P, garlic, rosemary and thyme. Then it was time to seal them in a bag using the Food Saver vacuum packer. Here's a closer view hopefully showing the spices on the meat. Prior to seasoning the NY Strips, I got the Sous Vide controller set up and warming the water to 125F. My Sous Vide is set to keep the water at 12
  17. Howdy Again Gurus! Last night SWMBOI and I were tired at the end of the day. I was looking for something quick, easy, and light. We have a favorite restaurant very near our home here in OKC, Charleston's, and they do a killer flat bread pizza. SWMBOI has been after me to duplicate it and I had the materials on hand, so, what the heck, why not? So here we go. Lit a fire in the belly of TheBeast and got him up to about 425. A little corn meal on the pizza peel ... The sweet Italian sausage hand made from the local grocery ... I bought some Momma Mary's thi
  18. I had a buddy in Stavanger, Norway, ask me about the KK line. He wanted to get an idea for the relative sizes of the two KKs I have. I took a few pics to given him an idea of what he cold expect. He's a single man and thinking that the KK BB 32" is what he wants when he throws a party every other month! I had to tell him that to spend that kind of money for a large cook every 6-8 weeks was nonsense. I've tried to steer him to the 23'Ultimate or the 19" Hi-Cap. I've also told him that he may just want to wait for the 21" that's supposed to be out in the next few months. I too
  19. Well, todays was supposed to be the day that I spun some meat. However, technical difficulties prevented spinning meat until further notice. Rather than sulk, I decided to make this evening's consolation prize worth truly enjoying. My motto has always been when life gives you lemons, grab a bottle of vodka and make some LeninAde! Tonight's menu consists of NY Strips, Baby Dutch Golden Potatoes, and Fresh Asparagus! SWMBOI and I had bacon and scrambled eggs with sautéed peppers and onion done on the griddle this morning in the belly of TheBeast. So we had bacon grease left over; yes
  20. Howdy Gurus! Well, the Ladies, soon to be granddaughters come over last night and wanted me to cook some Mac-N-Cheese to go with the feta and spinach stuffed chicken breasts I told them I was cooking. I said let's go the the store and get the fixin's for the MNC. So we dash to the store, I'm buying cheese like a madman, and we head to checkout. They ask me about the MNC. I don't get it. Then it dawns on me that they have never had scratch MNC and that the only thing they know if from a blue box! LOL!! So I say "Trust Me" and I get The Look! Evidently it runs in the family ... I
  21. Howdy Gurus! Well, yesterday was the 40th anniversary of my 21st birthday! I've beaten the odds again. I collected BIG bucks on the over/under at 40 and again when I hit 60. Given that I'm playing with House money at this point, I decided to treat myself for surviving my best efforts to plant myself. I went out and bought an iGrill 2 Bluetooth Connected Thermometer! So here is the unboxing and a mini review. Here is the box that showed up from Amazon: When you cut through the tape sealing the box and get the lid off, here is what greats your eye: And here is with
  22. Gurus! People who see a KK are oft times taken aback by the shear size of even the smaller units. I know that when my next door neighbor heard I was getting a smaller 19" KK, he said he couldn't wait to see it. He's beyond impressed with TheBeast and he has cooked on him a couple of times. He just shakes his head. So when my neighbor saw Beauty!, my new 19" Hi-Cap KK, he said "I thought you said it was small!" I told him compared to TheBeast Beauty was svelte and petite! He just laughed! My neighbor wanted to help me get Beauty! in her cradle. Like g.michael here on the Kamado G
  23. I just got off the phone with a dear BBQ friend down in Houston. He is an ER Doc at one of the largest ER Departments in Houston. He reminded me why I use my Nylon Bristle Cold Grill cleaning brush and NOT a wire brush of any fashion. About 15 years ago, we had a mutual friend who used a wire brush to clean his grates after every cook. He used the same brush for a couple of years. He started having stomach pains and presented himself to the ER 3 days after the stomach pains began. He was doubled up in pain. X-rays showed he had ingested a wire from his cleaning brush. Emergency sur
  24. Gurus! Today, the saga ends, Beauty! was delivered at 2:30 p.m. weighing in at a svelte 548 pounds including all the extras! I about froze outside while Tom got her off the truck and safely into my garage. Here are a couple pics to whet your whistle for what's to come. This first picture of Beauty and her delivery driver, Tom. Tom delivered TheBeast to my home last August and remember him quite well. He said that Beauty! is a small little thing compared to her bigger brother! Beauty! herself weighs in at 338 lbs compared to TheBeast at 954 lbs! Quite a difference. Tom is a rea
  25. Gurus, I was cruising through the KK Website when I happened across the following article on why kamados in general and KKs specifically are, in my estimation, better cookers than gassers, stick burners, or kettles. Many people ask why kamados are superior. The following answers that question quite well, I think. Thanks to Dennis Linkletter for putting the answer to that questions much better than I ever could. While Dennis speaks directly to why we KK owners think/know why the KK experience is so unique, the theory hold for all kamado cookers. Ceramic SmokersI’m always asked w
