First slowish cook with my new Kontrol Tower


Recommended Posts

So I got a new Kontrol Tower top for my KJC 1, finally got to where I could use it today (long story). The wife picked up some nice country style ribs (one of my favorites) so I thought that would work, cold windy rainy day. 

Got it fired up 



Got the ribs ready with my WORLD FAMOUS rub



Cooker is up and ready with my new top.



Going to have some ceviche style Mexican shrimp cocktail with it today. So I have the shrimp in lime juice cooking.



The Kontrol Tower worked perfect keeping the temp on target and the ribs turned out perfect!



And the Shrimp cocktail

Looks good.  Could not get your video to work, though.

Thanks, Yeah, I did not mean to post it, but I could not get it to cancel/delete either, it was just my cooker smoking is all so you didn't miss anything.

Please fill us in on your cerviche recipe/procedure! 

That all looks great! 

I'd remarry my wife if she brought home country-style ribs! 

Tomorrow, I'll try to remember to post the recipe. It's to die for!

Not sure about all that but here it is.

As far as the lime juice it needs to be fresh squeezed, bottled lime juice will not work. I get one of those little bags, maybe 10 or so of the little limes. Squeeze till you get half a cup or so, put the shrimp in the juice and into the fridge for about 2 hours. When you are ready to put everything together strain the shrimp out of the juice (keeping juice) and add 1/4 cup of that lime juice into the mix.

The corn : I like to quick lightly brown it in a pan or under the broiler, either way works.




Let me know how it turns out if you try it please!

You know, if you put that in the back of your truck and drove around the neighbourhood “rolling charcoal”, you’d give pickups a better reputation…. Great video.

You could see the video?? I can't even see it!


And there are no neighborhoods around here , thank God!

Besides too much like work to get it into the back of my truck!

Oh, and one more thing to note on this particular cook, I tried a bag of "Masterbuilt" lump charcoal on this and while the lump size was nice it was by far the "sparkiest" stuff I have used yet... I was half afraid of catching on fire everytime I opened the cooker !

I believe it is pork shoulder cut into rib like pieces, and I'm pretty sure I used to get them when I lived in Texas.


Yeah, I had to buy another piece of gasket and double up the gasket on top to get it to work
