    Smoking pork butt the day before

    I think that if you can do a pork butt the day or two before it's perfect. What has worked really well for me is to smoke it, let it cool to a reasonable temp, then shred and taste it as pitmaster privileges'. Once it cools from there to about room temp I put it in a vac seal bag and pop it in...

    Spider Grill 22

    Yeah I looked at the older posts but apparently they have made some upgrades since then. Just kind of curious if the newer models worked any smoother than the first gen? G

    Spider Grill 22

    I hope you all are doing well these days. I'm considering buying one of these to expand on what I can cook on my Weber kettle. I've seen very little from the current version as far as first person experience. Do any of you have a current model in the three month old range? If so, what has been...

    Spare ribs

    Congratulations on getting 15 years in one place. That's not easy these days. Later this year will be my 25 year anniversary at work as well. That's a very nice gift for your service. I'm sure you earned it as well. The ribs looked yummy. I haven't smoked any for months. That sure makes me want...

    Glove Recommendation

    Hi everyone, I hope that life is treating you all well. I'm on the hunt for some nice new BBQ gloves. Do any of you have any good experiences with a particular brand? I'm looking for something that can be used for heat resistance but I'm not worried so much about moisture resistance. Thanks in...

    Quick One-Pan Breakfast Scramble with Crunchy Bits

    That looks really yummy Ray. I'll have to do something like this myself soon. I love scrambled breakfasts too. I kind of prefer hash browns but I am willing to try the tater tots first. G

    Upcoming Sales

    The grade here in So Cal seems inconsequential. There are not many briskets available unless I go to Sam's Club and then it is Choice or Prime clearly stamped. Choice is usually around $4.75lb and Prime is about $5lb. Takes the price to a point I just don't want to pay for a single piece of meat...

    If only that was in Riverside. I'd be smoking one this weekend. Sam's is the lowest at $4.50lb or thereabouts. G

    Charcoal Chimneys

    I grill or smoke up to five times a week. I haven't been grilling as much the last couple of weeks thanks to a nasty shot of diverticulitis. I will be jumping back into the fray soon though. Need a fully functioning chimney to make things easier though. G

    First rotisserie run on the kettle.

    I do love rotisserie chicken. That looks awesome. Eventually I will spring for one of these units. Keep up the fine tuning. G

    She ain't pretty, but she's my supper.

    MMM I love my vortex. One of the greatest add ons for that kettle to date. You have inspired me to make some of my own. Keep up the good work. G

    Everything on that plate looks magnificent. What a great meal indeed. The price might be high but we always have them in So Cal. Congratulations on having the opportunity to bask in the glory of Tri Tip. Two thumbs up. G

    Charcoal Chimneys

    My Weber chimneys tend to last about three or so years on average. Since I was in the market I just figured it was worth tapping the database. Walmart only had the expert grill branded ones yesterday. Home Depot usually has several brands available and of course Amazon has everything. I...

    Charcoal Chimneys

    Hey everyone. I hope that this Sunday is treating you well. I’m looking for recommendations on a replacement charcoal chimney. I’ve bought the classic Weber chimney the last couple of times around. Eventually the spiral cone warps and my last chimney literally had the bottom fall out full of...

    Guess who isn’t smoking for Super Bowl

    Mid to upper 80s here in So Cal. I smoked my pork butt yesterday so I can stay out of those warm temps today. This is supposed to be the coldest and wettest month on average here. Not this year though. Almost constant Santa Ana winds for over a week and temps in the 80s and 90s. I’m sorry for...

    Craigslist Find

    My OKJ cost me a mere $75 on a crazy Walmart closeout. Best $75 I’ve ever spent. There are definitely flaws and it’s not gold standard 1/4” steele but it has cooked countless pounds of delicious bbq over the last few years. I have found that with simply adding a gasket around the poking chamber...
