    @MacKenzie they worked out too well! I have a list longer then my arm for flavors to try! I know I was worried they weren’t going to be too small for the tines. They fit just perfect!

    Thanks @tekobo, I saw @MacKenzie cloufitis cook and it peaked my curiosity. I think I might need that recipe. @MacKenzie those biscuits brought great memories back of baking with my grandmother! A fresh kick in the butt as to why I love cooking sooooo much!

    Everyday Misc Cooking Photos w/ details

    My wife and I had some friends down this weekend and I like to show off my talents. I cold smoke some bacon with coffee wood for 8hrs and finished it this morning at 215 degrees with some bourbon and merlot barrel chunks that I will be using for eggs Benedict tomorrow morning. Then moved on to finishing up my 80% biga that I started last night. The main course was Cornish game hens spun over some Brussels sprouts with garlic and shallots. I rubbed everything down with purple crack and herbs de Provence. The only potatoes my wife let’s me make now are Yukon mashed with chives, sour cream and horseradish. We washed everything down with a bottle of wollersheim winery prairie fume. For dessert I made sous vide vanilla Creme brûlée with grilled peaches soaked in calvados.

    Thanks everyone! I really enjoy my KK but having my cabinet and all the other stuff that comes with it just makes the experience so much more enjoyable!

    Peaches en Regalia

    Here’s hoping @MacKenzie, I hate to have my wife’s friends drive 4 or so hours for nothing.

    Peaches en Regalia

    I am making sous vide Creme brûlée this weekend for some friends and I am going to grill some peaches for the top of them. I’ll post some Picts if they turn out well, if not I’ll keep quiet and act like nothing happened.

    That’s what I was thinking @MacKenzie, having a bad back the height is perfect! I am just concerned when I use it as a grill will it be too hot when I leave the lid open. Thanks @Bruce Pearson, it turned out better then I hoped. Dennis does awesome work!

    I just discovered grilled peaches a week or so ago, I would say they are the best thing EVER!!

    Thanks @tony b I just noticed my cabinet sits higher then my Lid. Does anyone else’s cabinet with castors sit like that? I really like the height, it is perfect for prepping.
  12. I received a email from Mimi last week saying my cabinet arrived. I added 10 boxes of coffee wood cold smoker small chunks to my order, paid my bill and begin checking roadrunners tracking webpage. It arrived in Milwaukee Sunday but the local delivery couldn’t get it to me until today So I went to work bright and early and patiently waited for my phone call. By 11 am I just needed to leave work and pace around my house, 11:06 my phone buzzed and the guy said 20 minutes so I hauled butt home and a big beautiful semi was parked on my street with the driver scratching his head looking at my crate. After about 30 minutes he finally got it onto the load ramp and on the ground, we pushed it into my garage and I called my dad for some help uncrating it. He was also there to help with my 32” and still to this day marvels at how over engineered the cooker is and also how well packed they are for shipping. My cabinet is a stainless topped and the shelves are lined, it is on castors with 3 pull outs on the right for grates and 2 pull outs on the left with 2 drawers. @DennisLinkletter Said the pull outs on the left fit some size of cambro for charcoal and I hope he can help me out with what size to order. The crate took a beating but I pulled the top and checked inside with a flashlight before signing my paperwork. I was really relieved when I finally pulled the sides off!! I also bought some stainless chain the other day for making bread, figured I would break up the unpacking photos so no one gets bored It wasn’t as expensive as I thought it would be. And this is my wifes cat... i am assuming if your reading this you probably have the same look as Bernie right meow. Okay back to the good stuff, well some of the good stuff... can’t go full Monty just yet, I am not that kind of guy! As you can see I also bought matching charcoal tweed sunbrella covers, they are AWESOME!!! Okay no more teasing. So I ripped off the cardboard and plastic packing material and fell in love!!! I moved it out back the same way I did the KK, on 3/4” plywood Then I snugged it next to my big blue beauty and shed a tear... of joy. the World had a few tears of her own to shed over the joyous event, So no cooking for me today but this weekend we are having company over so it is going to be a combo of my Joules sous vide and my KK!!! Thanks Dennis for helping me with this cabinet and my KK and I can’t wait to buy another one of each!!!

    Fuel used

    I second rockwood and fruitopia.com for smoking Woods. If you can order dennis’s Charcoal do it! If not we can do a group buy later on when it’s available. At least order some coffee smoking wood, depending if you get a cold smoker will determine size to order.

    Moving onto breads... and way out of my comfort zone!

    Ok @Syzygies I get what your saying about cooking on the tail end of your cook but then your letting the fire dictate your cook. When you said you use your stoker to control your temperature, are you using the same temps as you would in the oven? How about timing Compared to the Dutch oven? @Pequod haven’t used a lame sense school. I can’t wait for my cabinet arrives so I have place for my stone! The crust from KK sounds perfect.
