  1. :::waving::: I still have my pre-Dennis cooker (aka Mexi-K). That MUST be more than 20 years, right? I lost track of time. The neighbor's tree fell on it and took off a tile or two on the legs, but otherwise it's intact. Still has its Johnnyboy Jammies (cover) on it, although that's surely worse for wear. The K doesn't get as much use as I'd like, though. I'm just one person, and I just don't usually want to fire up the grill for a single burger or steak. And forget about using an entire pork butt! I KNOW supper would taste better, but, you know, inertia. When I fired it up a couple of years ago, the fireman from across the street came to investigate. So much smoke, he figured that I was either electing a new Pope, or my house was on fire. Turned out to be neither. And yes, I do still knit. xo all!

    DENNIS!!! HAPPY!!!! I've missed visiting on the boards, too. I didn't realize how much, until I logged back in and remembered the joy of playing with all of you. I've not forgotten YOU (individually or collectively), either! I'm trying to encourage a work colleague to invest in your creation. Alas, he's a young fellow, and has just bought a house. I expect he'll be on a "Smokey Joe" for the foreseeable future. But SOMEDAY...! I sent him a photo of a KK, and he drooled. Obviously, he has exquisite taste. For those following along at home, Mother is doing well. She's 84 this year, and has tracked down the last of the heroes who liberated her from the concentration camp in China after WWII. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3712872/A-kiss-71-years-making-American-prisoner-war-meets-thanks-Chinese-man-rescued-1500-Japanese-Second-World-War-camp-searching-18-years.html

    Happy for you! I lost my Annie last month to lymphoma. Eskies are a riot. I have had one and a half. The other half was a German shorthaired pointer. Talk about a confused dog!

    Thanks, Tony. I just sent Johnnyboy an email. We'll see if he answers. I hope so.

    Noooo! Johnnyboy is worth far more than the sum of his Jammies. Hope he's ok.
  6. Remember... breathe out in little puffs. Puff puff puff puff.... But don't hyperventilate. Those puffs help delivery.
  7. That's the one. Pulleys, dim lighting, dramatic explosions. POOF!! I usually just lift an inch or two, let the cooker get the flames out of its system, and then open. As I said, rookie mistake. I did not use it much last year, so am/was way out of practice.

    Hey, Tony. Yup. My Mexi-K is working fine. All tiles still intact and everything! I probably shouldn't have said that - they'll all jump off tomorrow. And I know better than to remove the firebox thingy below the lump basket. Nope. Not touching that. I might need new Johnnyboy Jammies for it. Jammies are holding up well, of course, but they're looking a bit manky after so many years in the weather.

    Tucker!! Always love your signature quote. Hope all is well in Sunny Florida.
  10. Wasn't it Porkchop who had that video or gif of a backdraft? That was a good lesson video. Ugh. COMPLETE rookie mistake. I confess, I did it. Can't you tell by the singed eyebrows, missing lashes, and strangely short bangs? And blotchy forearm hairs? Yah, I thought you could. Ugh. I had the cooker closed to store the heat, rather than just burn hot. I was planning a pizza cook, so wanted the thermal mass, or whatever. Anyway, lost my mind and OPENED the cooker without burping or opening vents first. DO NOT do that. NO NO. WHOOSH!! Well, you know how it goes. Fortunately, I can laugh, because I wasn't really hurt. My polar fleece shirt got a bit melted (not soft anymore), and I singed some facial hair. Otherwise shamefaced, but fine. What's your method to burp the cooker? Do you open the lid a bit to let air in? Open the vents? What?
  11. Long lost? Back from the (electronic) dead? Missing, presumed eaten? Hi all! It's Sanny! xo I was cooking (on the Mexi-K) this weekend and realized I've been out of touch. Smoooch! I'll post something substantive in a proper section (not the Welcome area). But I'm sort of re-new, right?
  12. Try doing an individual pizza and cracking an egg on it near the end of the cook. Surprisingly tasty! (sorry, guys. I'm out of KK Forum practice!)

  14. Re: Bacon Cook - VIDEO Yes, please! BLT on home made bread, with garden tomato! Mmmm!
