    Chicken Tajine

    Great looking dish. I've always wanted to try out a tagine. I must resist buying one, I must resist..........
  2. Love rotisserie chick. Looks good. Kewl videos.
  3. Probably sleeping on the couch using divorce papers as a pillow - LOL But I did get away with buying her the fire pit because that was something she wanted.
  4. Just because she really wanted a fire pit and I really didn't want to pull out the old rust bucket fire pit. Definitely have campfire will travel and it's a very safe fire pit. With the small stand ring included, I would put it on a wooden deck without worry.
  5. I too thought it was a good improvement. It's just slightly dome shape and the ridges looks like they'll help with any possible warping. All in all Mrs skreef is really happy with this purchase I made for her. I wonder what her reaction would be if I bought her a 42" KK for valentines day - LOL
  6. For the last two years Mrs skreef has wanted me to pull the old rust bucket of a fire pit out of the bone yard. It was such a rust bucket I just couldn't do it. Then @Syzygies posted a link to the Solo Stove website. I poked around that website and found the Solo Stove Bonfire fire pit. After reading numerous reviews and watching many videos I knew this would be just perfect for Mrs skreef. It would allow us to have a nice looking fire pit in the BBQ garden. Ordered Thursday night. It arrived on Monday. It came with a nice, heavy duty carry bag. From the pictures I've seen it appears they have upgraded the coal plate. It is a slight dome shape with extra ridges to help prevent it from warping. Here it is in the BBQ garden. Also looking at the box it appears they now include the small lower stand. That allows air under the unit so you don't burn/scorch whatever it's sitting on. Super easy to light. A fire starter, a little kindling and a few bigger logs. Fire it up and within 20 minutes or so it's off to the races. Once going good it really is basically smoke-free. Here is a short video showing the secondary burn effect. Although a little pricey it's a well built SS unit with a lifetime warranty. Everything they say about it is true. It pumps out the heat. The only con I could see - if you're sitting around the fire, your legs from your shins down won't get any heat. It's a small con for having a smoke-free fire. I highly recommend it and both me and Mrs skreef feel it was one of our better accessories to the BBQ garden.
  7. Yea looks like a chicken on that big Komodo Kamado.
  8. I need to do some calzones it's been a long time since I did some. Yours looks great.
  9. Definitely an interesting setup. Never thought of using my Grill Grates as a heat deflector but it totally makes sense. Going to try that idea soon. Other than low-n-slow or grilling, most everything I cook on the KK - side dishes etc... Are always cooked on the upper rack. It just does a better more consistent cook. (not totally related but thought I would mention it)

    Solo Stove

    I have seen videos where people put a weber grate and cook over their bonfire units. We bought this strictly as a fire pit. Will allow us to sit in the BBQ garden around a nice fire. Something I really couldn't do with the old rust bucket of a fire pit sitting out in the bone yard. Went and picked up a load of firewood this morning. The unit is supposed to be delivered on Monday so hopefully the weather will cooperate next weekend. @Jon B. They were on sale and it comes with the bottom spacer stand. Do you leave yours outside for extended periods of time? We were thinking of buying the outside cover for ours so we can leave it outside during the winter.

    Thanks to @Syzygies I ordered Mrs skreef a new fire pit. The Solo Stove Bonfire. Will give it a full post when it arrives, hopefully next week.

    Giving It Up

    Safe and fun, happy New Year as long as you weren't sweeping or vacuuming. Moping is alright as long as it's on a piece of meat.
