|01/03/2018 - 12:02pm||Agree!!!||
I have used everything out there and just recently sold my BGE and purchased a Kamado Joe. They are really stepping up their game and are blowing things up. Great construction and accessories. I really think they are the best cooker out there right now.
|01/03/2018 - 12:00pm||The rest is key||
I typically let my meat rest for an hour or so. If it's a big chuck roll or brisket, I let rest for 2-4 hours. This is so important. Great add!

Go with the Thermapen. Spend the $80 and don’t look back. It’s my top grilling accessory.
|12/30/2017 - 7:50pm||Discussing it soon||
We will be working on it.
|12/30/2017 - 2:36pm||WSM||
Go with the 22 inch Weber Smokey Mtn. They run $399 or so. It’s a great smoker. The smaller 18 inch version is nice but not big enough for full racks of ribs or briskets.
|12/29/2017 - 9:37pm||Go fatty||
You can always remove it after the cook. The fat will render throughout the cook and help keep it moist.
|12/29/2017 - 6:38pm||210 degrees.||
At 200-205, I typically slice my brisket. If I get to 210-215, I can pull it like pork and make pulled beef sammiches. Give it a go.
|10/29/2017 - 7:52pm||Switch||
They are built better and have a lot more accessories. The cost is the same, so it was an easy choice.
|10/29/2017 - 7:49pm||KJoes||
I made the switch and am very happy. They are the new big dog when it comes to Kamado style cookers.
|10/29/2017 - 7:47pm||Kamado Joes||
I love all of accessories they offer and seem to be built better. The gasket is built to last and latch on the lid are great. Overall, it feels more solid to me.
|10/20/2017 - 10:10am||Brats||
I may try these with brats next time. Sounds good to me.
|10/20/2017 - 10:08am||Smokers||
You cant go wrong with the Weber Smokey Mountain 22 inch smoker. You can use it as a grill as well if you use the bottom ring only. It will make sense once you look at it. The pellet smokers are nice and basically an outdoor oven powered by processed wood pellets. They are a set it and forget it style cooker. I am not against them, but I prefer the art of using wood and charcoal.
|10/20/2017 - 10:05am||I see what you did there.||
Well played Sir..well played indeed.
|10/20/2017 - 10:04am||Barley Pop Pairing||
Anything cold and frothy will work with these. This time of the year, I like to go with a bock style beer. Shiner Bock or Zeigenbock are my favorites.
|10/20/2017 - 10:02am||New Website about to launch||
I am updating my website and will get it back up next week. It will have most of these plus many more.
|10/12/2017 - 2:55pm||WSM||
I agree on the Weber Smokey Mountain. Its a great smoker and easily transportable. Go with the 22.5 inch. It's only $100 mre and gives you the ability to cook larger hunks of meat and full racks of ribs without issue. I have the larger and smaller and never use my smaller WSM. You cant go wrong with this one.
|10/12/2017 - 2:52pm||Grocery Store||
Look for PORK BLADE STEAKS at your grocery store. If nothing, go to a butcher and aske them for 1 inch thick pork steaks. They will know what you want.
|09/22/2017 - 10:28am||Working on it||
|09/22/2017 - 10:27am||I'll be making this soon||
Thanks for the link. Looks AWESOME!!! You know I like me some cheese on the grill.
|09/21/2017 - 4:28pm||I'm in||
I'll pick up a few barley pops and head that way.
|09/15/2017 - 3:34pm||Sides and toppings||
I love these topped with a creamy cole slaw on bread, buns or tortillas.
|09/08/2017 - 11:14am||HAHA||
That's not me. I'm in the last pic holding the Tri Tip. NO where close to 275, but have to work at it. THX
|09/08/2017 - 11:13am||Rubs||
Depending on which flavor sausage you go with, I like sweet and spicy rubs. You can also make your own and play around your favrite spices. I like the Meat Church line. Check them out. The Honey Hog is a favorite along with The Gospel.
|09/08/2017 - 11:11am||Accessories||
I'm not familiar with the Weber Kettle accessories for multi zone cooking, but I have them on my egg and Kamado Joe grills. I highly recommend them. They really make things easier and provide more cooking space.
|09/08/2017 - 11:10am||I'm In||
Let's chat next week.
|09/08/2017 - 11:09am||Awesome||
That sounds really good. I will try this around the holidays.
|09/07/2017 - 6:00pm||Yes!!!!||
|09/07/2017 - 6:00pm||Absolutely||
Do it the same way, same temp. The only difference will be no smoke ring or smoke flavor.
|09/01/2017 - 4:58pm||It's an El Rey||
El Rey pit. Made in Mansfield Tx
|08/31/2017 - 5:46pm||Builder||
I had it custom built by El Rey Pits here in Mansfield TX. Best pit builder going today.
|08/31/2017 - 5:42pm||No.||
I may hit the game vs Sparty tho.
|08/31/2017 - 5:42pm||Get on that plane||
I'll pick you up at the airport cuz
|08/31/2017 - 5:40pm||Based in Dallas||
I'm local. I live in Mckinney.
|08/31/2017 - 3:10pm||It's a short walk||
Come say hey.
|08/31/2017 - 3:08pm||Great||
See you there.
|08/31/2017 - 3:08pm||Come on by.||
We may have redneck golf going.
|08/31/2017 - 3:07pm||Operational||

|08/31/2017 - 12:44pm||Yes. All wolverines welcome||
Come on by
|08/15/2017 - 9:01am||Of course||
It is. You can't miss this beauty.
|02/03/2017 - 3:36pm||Love it.||
I thought about adding some sweetness, but figured the wings had enough. Great addition indeed. THANKS!!!!
|02/03/2017 - 3:35pm||Indirect||
These were smoked on the BGE with the plate setter in and legs up. These do not have super crispy skin like you get when they are fried. The Chicken Scratch Rub does crisp up and gives them a nice texture and the skin is bite thru and not rubbery at all. Give em a try. the honey drizzle at the end is a must. You are welcome!
|12/30/2016 - 12:51pm||I can get you one. Same color? Email me. [email protected]||

|12/29/2016 - 2:59pm||I like the flavor better due||
I like the flavor better due to the rendered fat. I love a good pork loin as well. I've just never used a loin for a Cubano. Maybe next time. Plus, PB is typically less expensive.
|12/29/2016 - 12:47pm||It's difficult to find Cuban||
It's difficult to find Cuban bread in most areas so French bread is an easy find and works well. 160 degrees works for this recipe as well, but I prefer it cooked to 185. To each his own. I assure you, this is very good.
|11/25/2016 - 12:56pm||Absolutely. It's a great make ahead kind of meal.||
Absolutely. It's a great make ahead kind of meal.
|11/25/2016 - 12:34pm||Bacon||
The bacon was limp underneath where it comes in contact with the plank. I like mine that way, but I'm a little odd. You can remove it from the plank and finish over direct heat to crisp it up if you'd like. As far as the inside of the bacon that comes in contact with the meatloaf, all was cooked well. It doesnt get super crispy as the grease from the meatloaf keeps the interior bacon super moist. The exterior is quite crispy until you slather it with the sauce.
Thanks for asking.
|11/17/2016 - 3:36pm||BBQ Gadgets||
Sorry for the delay. I got distracted by somethig shiny. Here is my quick list of must haves. I think all of these can be found on Amazon. The KickAsh basket is a must have for me. It makes things easy.
1. Kick Ash Basket – (charcoal basket)– http://www.kickashbasket.com
2. LooftLighter or EggNighter (Charcoal Lighter) www.looftlighter.com
3. Grill Grates (Great steak and burger grates for perfect sear marks) www.grillgrate.com
4. Instant Read Thermometer – Thermapen by Thermoworks
5. Himalayan Salt Block and holder.
6. Cedar Planks – Chayder Planks are the best from Amazon - $20.00 for 6 and a few wraps.
7. Smokeware SS vented chimney cap.
8 - Carson Rodizio Brazilian Rotiserrie. http://www.carsonrodizio.com This is my favorite grilling toy of all time. They are on backorder but worth the wait!
Let me know if you have any other questions. These are all great on the egg or most normal grills, except for the Kickash basket. That is for the egg or komado style cooker.
|11/17/2016 - 3:16pm||Smoker build||
Make your own smoker in about an hour. I started making these for friends a few years back and they are great little smokers. If you want to add paint, it will take a few hours. Here is the link. The total cost is about $125-150. If you already have a Weber Smokey Joe, even cheaper.
|10/28/2016 - 7:50am||Yes. Definitely toss on some||
Yes. Definitely toss on some wood chunks. I prefer pecan with my pork.
