    Posts suddenly "awaiting moderator approval"

    I suppose the title says it all. When I post, i get that msg.. either something is wrong, or I've been put on some sort of unknown probation? Even this thread has it.

    Smoked delicacies...

    A question for the community as it were. I by no means consider myself as having "perfected" any one particular smoking staple whether it swim, run, or fly but I find myself lacking inspiration lately having hit a bit of a rut doing the traditional fare as of late. So here's the question...

    Quick wings for a friend

    Had a friend commission (use) me for a 150pc order of wings for his fantasy draft. UDS 360 for an hour (two racks), then rotate the racks and ended up finishing at close to 275 for another 40 ish mins. Nothing special, just a Sunday wing ding thing :-) In the pan: On the racks...

    Calculations (and my other newb questions)

    I'm hoping I can keep my newb-ish questions confined to one thread :-) Today's question: calculating ratios of lean v fat. I have 2925g of "lean" cut up (store bought) pork butt. The fatty pile in the "fat" bowl came to 465g. In order to bring this meat up to a 70/30 ratio, I need how much...

    They got me good today...

    As much as I complain about not being able to find good meat in my area of Michigan, one of the benefits I suppose is that I work 10 minutes from Butcher and Packer. Popped in there today finally. They got me good. 132 bucks worth of good :-) this is a catalog I did NOT need in my life! So...

    Ease my nervous mind :-) (mes 20070910)

    I've owned my Gen1 for about 3 years. On Sunday it suddenly wouldn't heat past 80 or so degrees. There were no concerning smells being put off by the unit. So that's good anyways. Ok, so I took it apart in search of a reason why. Upon inspection of the PCB, thermostat, snap-disc, wire, and...

    Lamb Ribs

    Ok, for starters. Should list the tools first. 1. UDS, which btw gave me trouble with running away on me from jump street. SO, t'was 3 ish hours in the UDS @ 240-280 degrees, then I panned, foiled, and rammed that sucker into the oven for the rest. I hate to admit that, but it's true. RO...

    Signatures on phone?

    Am I not able to see signatures when browsing on the phone? Ok, let me re-word that. Is it normal to not see signatures when browsing the site on mobile. I feel like I'm missing out on good links :-D I have the show signatures box checked, idk.

    A Chili/Jeff London Broil

    A friend tried some Top round roast I made a few weeks ago and was totally in love with it. So he asked me if I would make one for him. I told him, no problem. Buy the meat and I'll take care of the rest. So he shows up with a London broil steak :-) . After my initial mockery of him , I told...

    My MES30 got a new toy today

    Tbqh, I was worried about the fractional returns with such a long draft. It's about 65" total on the diagonal. But the draft improvement has been great. I run a mailbox mod, with a damper and lower holes drilled in the door. More and more I had been having Backdraft issues depending on how the...

    Q's on Improving a block pit smoker

    Hello friends. Can't tell you the time I've spent on your wonderful forum. More of a reader than a writer as you can tell by my poor post count. Anywho. I built a large-ish block smoker for doing whole hogs, large amounts of food for big party's, etc. Pit in total by fivetricks posted Aug 27...
