    Spare Ribs & Hobo Potatoes

    Great looking plate. It's funny how it took me 20+ years to realize that 2 or 3 ribs is a serving, not 8 to 10. 😁

    Great pics. I went to high school with a guy named Shenandoah and everyone called him "Doah"....he didn't like it very much.

    Money roast

    Money muscle from a pork butt/shoulder? If so, did you butcher it out yourself and how much did it weigh? Looks fantastic. I need to do this.

    The Joke is On Karen

    Apparently this video isn't real. It's a parody of a situation on Australia where a vegan tried to sue their neighbor for grill smoke coming into their yard. My neighbors next door are both vegetarians and, unfortunately, the prevailing winds usually carry my smoker or grill smoke right into...

    Deli Style Roast Beef

    One of the grocery stores in my area sells cross rib chuck roast. Not sure if it has another name, but I've never seen it at any other stores. Beefier flavor than eye of round, IMHO. Low smoke for a couple hours, 132 sous vide for 24 hours, then quick sear in a hot skillet makes a fantastic...

    Interesting. I'm fairly certain that chunks in my hopper haven't burned up when packed high enough in the the hopper that they don't get used in a cook. However, I've been pretty good about adding the correct amount of charcoal lately, so I don't have a lot leftover. I thought that the...

    By repack, do you mean empty the hopper and refill, or just refill to the top every time? I usually don't empty the hopper. I just add new briquettes and chunks on top of what's in there. I most use the middle grate with a pan underneath it to catch drippings. I get the most consistent...

    Unwrapped Baby Back Ribs

    My last rib cook was a half rack of baby backs alongside some chicken thighs. It was my first no wrap cook and turned out fantastic. Plan on doing it that way again next time.

    2" Thick Porterhouse on the Camp Chef

    Well done, sir.

    I also used wood chunks mixed in with the charcoal and added to the ash bin, so I don't think I could tell how much charcoal smoke vs wood smoke is affecting the flavor in the food. That being said, in my 800, I recently did a couple of cooks using the Kingsford briquettes that have apple wood...

    Masterbuilt Gravity Feed

    That could work, but seems like it would be annoying extra work around. If you had two full size racks, the support dowels for the upper rack would have to rest on the middle rack, and the middle rack would have to rest on the bottom rack. I could see myself accidentally knocking them out of...

    That is a pic of a 560 with their grates in it. The 2nd pic shows the grates in stalled in an 800: You can see that only the back half of the rack is supported by the rails on the side of the cook chamber. LSS says that it can support up to 30 lbs depending on weight distribution. So...

    Favorite widely available bourbon or whiskey

    One of the best whiskys there is. Love the sherry finish and peat combination.

    I don't think you can put a 2nd full size grate in an 800. The lid actually wraps around the sides of the cooking chamber, going deeper as it goes up. This means that the side supports for the second and upper grates are only half as deep as the bottom grate. I believe that it's the same for...

    Need to bring a cooked brisket 350 miles

    Great write up. Sounds like you've got it dialed in.

    First Smoked Chuck Roast

    Yeah, it was about 9 hours total. However, I've not done many chuck roasts, and others on here have said that some can be quite finicky and take a lot longer. You gotta go by tenderness and it's not done until it's done. Round here (Seattle), brisket and chuck roasts are basically the same...

    New member and new to smoking, show me the way please wonderful folk!

    Welcome from (never sunny) Seattle, Wa. I, too, cannot answer most of your questions. However, I will say that briskets in my neck of the woods will easily run $100 or more. Meat prices vary widely in the states.
