    Bacon-wrapped bear loin jalapeño poppers

    The end result was pretty darn good. I cooked them for 2.5 hours with is prob 30 min too long @ 225. I was getting good readings off the internal probe and the ThermoPro. The bear was marinated in Italian dressing for 2 hours then after assembling the poppers I covered them with the Italian...

    iOS12 broke the Masterbuilt app

    I haven't had a chance to try it yet but I did see the update. Nice to see they've extended the connection timeout and improved the crash report tool...at least that makes it sound like they're interested in improving it.

    I think its important to let everyone know that if you are worried about ordering from Amazon (shipping damage)...this unit was delivered in good condition. It was packaged fairly well with styrofoam inserts with reinforced rubber corners (to address non-team lift situations....being polite)...
