  1. Grabbed a 3lb cowboy prime from Costco (first time) last night. cooked at 300 dome temp for about 1 he 10 until it hit 118, pulled and cranked to 500-550. It only took a few minutes to get the fire roaring, then seared on lower grate over fire 1.5 min each side. Pulled and center was 135 on dot basically! No other wood, just used coffeechar.

  2. When KK was new and we were constantly upgrading the grills, there would be certain changes that someone would see on the forum, then buy a grill and complain it did not have the feature / was not the latest and greatest. This got old, so like software I gave the major changes their own version numbers. At a certain point, I carried so much inventory it made adding features difficult. How do I add a $30 cold smoker port when I had 40 23's and 25 32's without making $300k plus worth of grills suddenly dated.. My solution was to photoshop out the ports until all the grills without them wer

  3. It was a hectic weekend in the end, hence the delayed post. After about four hours the next stage for the brisket was to put it in a pan with a bit of water and to slather it in chimichurri sauce. Basted with more chimichurri roughly every hour with a brush fashioned out of rosemary. I added more water to the base, probably too much but I was worried about burning. Cooked for a further six hours or so to get to the right temperature on the point (88C/190F) and then wrapped. Now I know why he leaves the brisket on the bone. It was soooo soft that I needed to wrap my hands und

  5. Used the rotisserie for first time tonight. I used basket splitter on my KK23 so only had back half lit, dome temp 400 (meater probe showed consistent 350 ambient) for about 1.5 hours. 6lb roasting chicken with a simple chicken rub. Came out great!! Super fun. didn’t use the drip pan, used foil to cover the half of the basket that was covered. Threw in a few cherry and apple wood chunks. IMG_6862.MOV

  6. Nicely done! I'm on the other end of the scale. No grill pics, just one plated one. Grilled chicken breasts for tostada's. Grilled the poblano for the salsa. The corn that I got at the market the other day was Meh, so tonight I grilled an ear for Elotes. Nailed it! A couple of margaritas to go with it sealed the deal! Gorgeous evening to eat outside, too!

  8. @Seasport my mother in law bought two of those for Christmas last year. She said she got them from Costco but that she’s also seen them at Cost Plus World Market made pizza again tonight. My gurus are now officially off cheese pizza and on to pepperoni which is good. So I made two pepperoni for us and one pepperoni & black olive for my wife and mother in law.

  11. Two things that directly lead to my weight loss: I retired. When working, i had a long time between breakfast and lunch and was always very hungry at lunch so I ate too early and too much at lunch. I was then very hungry again at dinner and i are too much then as well as getting take-out too often. I'm sleeping later now which shortens the time between breakfast and lunch so I'm eating less at lunch so i have one "real" meal each day instead of two. I used Noom which helped me with portion control and better balance in my meals; it also helped with strategies for dealing with di

  12. Broke out the EZKabob yesterday - beef & lamb kabobs with serious garlic and onions. Corn was a must. (No phallic ones this time - ha, ha! I just did a baby kabob with the leftover bits.) Plated with orzo sauced with Boursin and Parm cheeses, basil and cherry tomatoes from the garden and a bit of parsley. Too damned hot/muggy to eat outside last night!

  15. If my Massachusetts neighbor C6Bill wasn’t afraid of thunderstorms a few days ago, then I figured I shouldn’t be afraid of a little rain (actually not so little as it turned out) yesterday. We had about 6 pounds of pork belly strips that needed cooking - salt, pepper, smoked paprika - and several hours at about 225-235°F. I’d forgotten how filling this is. Lots of leftovers. My wife will use some to make a big batch of pasta sauce.

  16. Today- first attempt at pork butt. Bone in; 4 Monkey's pork rub (and a little drink for me while preparing the butt); 9 hrs at 300F/150C. Some peach wood chunks. Served with simple coleslaw, Carolina Gold mustard based sauce and simple buns. Sublime- can't believe how good it was...

  17. My local fish market ran a 4th of July special on my favorite fish in the world wild CA King Salmon. Last time it was around it was $34.95/lb and usually it’s been $25-$30/lb pre-COVID. the special this weekend was $19.99/lb which is just crazy. I showed up early Friday morning and there was a line of people all there to buy salmon like me this fish is so deep red, so flavorful it’s the perfect grilling fish. I sprinkle garlic powder, salt & oregano for the kids and on my wife and mine I use this Salt Farm “Catalina Offshore” (name of fish market) rub which is a spicy mesqui

  18. Now we will all start cooking pizza again. Thanks Troble. This time it was all my own food. A crayfish tail grilled with grilled radicchio lettuce aka Lennox hastie style with a squirt of olive oil and salt. The little tommies were tossed on the grill at the end. I grilled the cray at high direct heat flesh down and nude( nothing on it), then flipped it over and placed at a higher level( cooler) and drizzled melted butter with a fresh ground herb and spice mix and also chopped dill and let it slowly cook in the shell. I’ve cooked a few of these now and this method is definitely best. Each t

  19. No matter what time I start a brisket I always feel like it is not early enough. I got up at 0530 to start the fire and things seem to be running smoothly at 145C/295F. I just looked up other posts about hot and fast brisket and I see that folks go up to 350F for that method. Here is hoping that things go well today. I am following a recipe in Adam Perry Lang's book, Charred & Scrubbed. His brisket was on the bone. Mine is about 10kg/22lb and off the bone. I aged it in the dry ager for about 2 weeks. Looked good when I got it out this morning. Very little to trim off.

  20. Tonight- Bistecca Fiorentina. My first attempt at a slow cooked reverse sear steak. Around 1.1kg. Simple salt and pepper seasoning. 225F for 1hr 40min until internal temp was just about 50C; cranked up the heat while the steak rested for 20min. 5min sear on each side (2min 30sec x4 with 90 degree rotations), 54C when I pulled it off. Few foil baked potatoes (in the KK for the whole cooking time), simple salad and chimichurri. Best steak I've ever made at home bar none- no contest. Flavour, crust, and even a smoke ring despite no wood chunks/ chips etc. I am amazed- four very different meals/ m

  24. I had my first cook that made good use of all the space available on the big grill yesterday. Three spatchcocked chickens that were dry brined with salt and garlic powder for 24 hours, rice-stuffed peppers, and skewers of miscellaneous veggies. Got some 20 inch skewers from Amazon on prime day and they just fit across the grate frame. I also grilled asparagus, cherry tomatoes, and some greens in grill baskets but didn't get pics of those. Everyone was happy with the results!

  26. A generous friend gifted this beautiful wet aged wagyu rib fillet. I’ve spent the last week 2000kms( 1200 miles) away with 20 friends in The Barossa Valley over indulging in wine and fine food. The company was superb. After fasting all day, I whipped this Thai Beef salad up this evening. As mentioned previously, the secret is in the dressing. Garlic, ginger, chilli, fish sauce, lime, lemon, tamarind. Gin lime n soda to quench the meal. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  29. A few months ago I finally bought a ThermoWorks Signals / Billows setup. Needing to clear the freezer of a 19 pound package of pork butt (which was taking up a lot of space) and having house guests to help eat it, I decided to try an overnight cook using the controller / fan to check it out. After three days of thawing, I separated and trimmed the two bone-in butts. I marinaded one overnight with Wicker's Marinade, then rubbed with Wicker's dry rub. The other I rubbed with a 50-50 mix of KC Butt Spice and Bad Byron's Butt Rub, using duck fat as a binder. Butt Number Two (number one was ve

  34. So tonight's dinner has cooking pics, for the skeptical among you! 😝 Smoked wings, with another ear of corn for elotes, and a nice slab of grilling cheese for an app! And because it was National French Fry day (I bet you didn't know that?), I did a nice batch in the air fryer, with a nice side of jalapeno mayo. Beer is from a local brewery run by one of my homebrewing club buddies.

  35. My first pizza cook on my KK turned out great, not perfect but very good. Some observations: -Getting a KK to 500-600 degrees is way easy compared to a ceramic Kamado and quick. Lots of charcoal, lots of lighting and voila! -This was my first cook above 400 and I’ve never done the so called burn-in. I was cooking between 500-600 degrees and didn’t really smell anything venting off. I will have to check the grill for venting. I don’t think I’m ever going to do a formal burn-in just little by little over hotter cooks. -I used a forum members sourdough crust recipe (happy to share). I think th

  36. After a nice long walk this morning we decided it would be a nice day to spin a chicken in the KK. I took some small potatoes and fresh zucchini from the garden and put them in foil with chicken broth and placed that in the drip pan. We put the veggies in while getting a good heat soak going as I wanted to cook the chicken for the last 30 minutes with no pan under it to try and crisp the skin. After doing it that way I don’t see any reason why I couldn’t cook the chicken for the last 30 or even 40 minutes without a drip pan or foil at all under it. the entire cook was done at 400 F. We were re

  37. I waited until fresh peas were in season and then...cooked them. They were nothing like frozen peas. More like a robust bean. Ironic because the notes in the recipe for Braised lamb, peas, creme fraîche and mint in The Book of St John refer to Fergus Henderson being told, by a wise old chef, to wait until fresh peas are in season and then use frozen. That dish and many others from all of Fergus' books are well worth making. I love the freedom he gives you by being imprecise by referring to glugs of oil, enough stock, medium oven and, best and most mysterious of all, disciplining your mint

  38. Smoked pork belly burnt ends used for bahn mi sandwiches! First time doing the bahn mi at home, really excited about how they came out. Did some quick pickling of daikon radishes/carrots/red onion, mixed up some spicy Mayo, added a tad bit of shredded cabbage, cilantro, and jalapeño. Pork bellies rubbed with onion powder/garlic powder/paprika/brown sugar/salt/pepper/cayenne/chili powder and smoked at 225-250ish for 2.5 hours, then glazed with honey, butter, fish sauce, soy sauce and wrapped in foil for another 90 mins. Took foil off for another 15 mins then made the sandwiches

Well worth the expense in my humble opinion, while it isn't something i'd do on a weekly basis it is something i will be doing a couple times a year. Anyways the only issue i had was i did not get the skin crispy. I should have cranked the heat for the last 30 minutes but was busy with a few things in the house. And the BBQ Sundae was made up of a Slice of sourdough, baked beans with bacon, then the pork and a little BBQ sauce and then topped with apple cherry coleslaw.

  44. At last after 4 years of planning, my Cobalt Pebble 32" has arrived in Scottsdale, AZ Her name is "Santorini" after the Island in Greece. It is much prettier, larger and heavier than I imagined but it got here! I have a bit of an up hill across gravel so my handyman suggested renting a crane. It was the right idea! I'm doing a burn in now and it really holds temp. I was worried about run away but if you sneak up on it and take notes, its pretty easy. Thanks to Dennis for his hard work!

  46. Keeping with my theme of trying something different each time; KK dinner number 5 was tandoori leg of lamb. Around 2.7kg. Took 2 hrs at 400F to get to medium rare. Served with raita, pickles, rice, homemade naan and mango hot sauce al la Steve R. Wife claims this one was the best yet- although the other 4 were mind-blowingly good. God I love this thing!

  49. High-quality insulation reduces airflow which creates better barbecue. Charcoal always burns at the maximum volume for the allowed airflow, if you can burn less fuel to maintain your cooking temperature, you will have less airflow, less evaporation, and Bingo.. more retained moisture in your meat. And that's better barbecue. And commonsense would dictate that less airflow gives the vapor that's released from the charcoal more retention time therefore more opportunity to condense on your food. Condensation of course is how the vapor is transferred to the food. So less airflow not only

  50. Making my first ribs in the BB32 today, so far so good, going 4 hours naked and 1 hour wrapped at 275 degrees. They are all about 3.8 pounds per rack. This is how they looked prior to wrapping. Now the waiting for them to finish and then rest for a bit. I’m not going to sauce these ones, I don’t think they will need it. I’ll add a plated pic later 😁 and the finished product, I could have gone another 30 minutes but overall I am really happy with the results 😁
