    Dave's Smokefire EX6 Experiences

    Yes sir. They have a couple of options out there. Mr. Cool sells DIY mini-splits that have unique line connectors which do not require you to vacuum down the system. The problem is, the line-sets are fixed length and unless you get lucky, you'll end up with a coiled line-set. That's bad as...

    Trying an overnight pork butt on the Smokefire

    One thing I do when smoking pork butts is to smoke them in a small steam table disposable tray to capture the juices. Then when it's time to wrap around 165 degrees, you just cover and cook until probe tender (195-205). After that I pull the shoulder from the steam table tray, drop it into a...

    Ribs on the SmokeFire🔥 using smoke boost.

    Nice cook Bruno! I mix pineapple juice and red wine vinegar to mist my ribs when I'm feeling festive. Creates a really nice flavor, whether putting it into the foil when wrapping or if just straight smoking them without wrapping them. I've also created a mop sauce using pineapple juice. Nice...

    Dave's Smokefire EX6 Experiences

    Howdy everybody. It's been a while! With the corona going around and plenty of work from home, I've been focusing on some other things. That's not to say I'm not cooking because I am. :) Last weekend I made some ribs on the EX6 and they came out great. The EX6 seems to be working pretty...

    App update.

    Dang. I'm going to have to check it out. I was happy to see their last firmware update was more typical vs. the prior update. Thanks for the heads up.

    SmokeFire Update, Auger Impaction, Fluctuating Temps on Low and Slow

    Yeah. This was a pretty dumb idea. What other pellet smokers do is stop feeding fuel at shut down, wait a while and then advance the auger to push some of the pellets out. Reversing it is something I noticed straight away that it would pack pellets into the end of the auger assembly and...

    Dave's Camp Chef Woodwind 36 WIFI Experiences

    So I wanted to post a quick update about something. If you go back to the beginning of this thread, you'll see that my Woodwind 36 arrived with a few defects (which they fixed except a small ding on the body in the back). Camp Chef said they'd issue me around a $215 refund which I thought was...

    Did a brisket flat on the SmokeFire

    Looks great. Try injecting liberally with a low sodium beef stock next time. Also consider adding a pan of water to moisten the cooking environment.

    Dave's Camp Chef Woodwind 36 WIFI Experiences

    I'm not really sure on this one. I'd measure the factory grates and see what you can find online. By complete dumb luck, the Grand Turbo gas grill that I got used came with a full second set of heavy duty 3/8" grates. I grabbed one just to see if it would fit and it did. They fit almost...

    Dave's Camp Chef Woodwind 36 WIFI Experiences

    Ribs came out tasty. The Woodwind 36 is really set it and forget it. Runs like a top.

    Dave's Camp Chef Woodwind 36 WIFI Experiences

    Been a while since I've posted but I have not been doing much outdoor cooking lately. Today that's all changing and I just put some baby back ribs on the Woodwind 36 to smoke for a couple of hours after 26 hours of Sous Vide. I also bought a little cutting board from Amazon to sit on the...

    Dave's Smokefire EX6 Experiences

    Weber has let me know that they're working on a software fix for the freezing, so I guess they don't believe it's hardware related. I also asked them for specifics about the Glow Plug but they didn't provide me anything other than sending me another glow plug as a spare to have on hand. I...

    Pellets

    Pit Boss pellets I bought arrived a couple of day ago. They are the larger diameter so the EX6 may not like them as much as the smaller diameter pellets from Weber or Lumberjack. Couldn't beat the price though at $16.50 per 40lb bag delivered.
