  1. You do know that I was born and raised in SC - no Yankee here, despite where I live now!
  2. OMG @Poochie Y'all might freeze to death in such cold! 🤣 btw - the high here on Thursday will be 3F.
  3. Trying to get in a couple of cooks before the deep freeze hits on Wednesday (single digit highs and lows 10F below zero). Chicken thighs on the main grate, 325F, direct. Plated with mushroom risotto with some truffle salt, Greek Salad.
  4. Celebrated the successful break-in of my new, electric snowblower yesterday. We'd gotten over 6" of snow Friday, with significant drifting (close to a foot). Steak night! Prime NY strip, marinaded in Shio Koji with SPG, then rubbed with SureShot Sid's gunpowder (my go-to steak rub now). Grilled direct on the lower grate with some mesquite chunks. Plated with a nice 2x baked spud with some cheddar on top, sauteed mushrooms and spinach in Bearnaise sauce. A nice bottle from Trefethen (interesting blend of Petite Verdot/Cab/Merlot).
  5. @Mcjudsten - very clever setup with the backstop pan! Good job! @alimac23 - your vid links don't work anymore. Care to share the actual recipe in text form, if possible?
  6. Yeah, that's "normal" to see some moisture leaking out the vent door. Doesn't happen all the time, but don't freak out if you see it. Only if you don't maintain your grout. Check your KK periodically for small cracks in the grout and repair them. Internal moisture from a cook is never a problem. On the other hand, don't ever let the inside of your KK get very wet (a rarity) - not good for it. Requires another venting procedure.
  7. That's even true for the 32" and possibly for the 23" as well (if you add up all 3 grates). I know my 23" is bigger than any BGE.
  8. Exactly! I was talking about an "in home" visit by someone with their industrial grade slicer.
  9. @Poochie - At least you poked fun at yourself for once!
  10. An added expense, but one thing that helps "simplify" the setup process, regardless of grill size, if you have the basket splitter - get a 2nd charcoal basket for it. Then, it's just a matter of swapping them out without having to fiddle with unused charcoal bits and assembling the basket splitter. Granted, with the bigger KKs, the basket splitter has more options for setup than my 23" does, but I still think that it would make things simpler for setting up a cook to have a separate charcoal basket for it.
  11. @alimac23 making up for lost time with those nice cooks! Everything looks yummy!
  12. I 2nd that thought! Party on, Wayne! 🥂
