    I saw that you are a StokerX user. My version when corrupt and I was wondering if you still had a copy that you could share with me. I have a Mac mini running an old OS to run this.

    StokerX 1.0.2 download

    Seeing as there are a few people talking about the Stoker, I figured I would pump this old thread again. Does anyone have a saved copy of Stoker X 1.0.2 that isn't configured for Prowl notifications? I would love to get a copy as I switched computers and the "Discard Prowl Authentication"...

    Stoker Users

    Eric, what about re-flashing the firmware? Sounds like something has gone corrupt and this might address the issue - just a thought.

    StokerX 1.0.2 download

    I guess a copy of an installed version that doesn't have prowl notifications set up would work too.

    StokerX 1.0.2 download

    I used to use StokerX version 1.0.2 on my iMac but since upgrading the OS on the iMac, it stopped working. I have set up a Mac Mini running macOS Sierra, but I don't have a clean version of StokerX version 1.0.2 to use on it. The version of the app I have has my old Prowl Authentication tied...

    Catering with Pork Butt - A Noob Question

    Assuming the 2/3 pound per person rule is correct, you are going to have to do 7 pork butts that are 8 lbs each. With a single smoker you might want to smoke each pork butt for a couple of hours (to get the smoke in the meat) and then finish them off in an oven. The real question is can you...

    Rock's Bar-b-que has stopped selling Stoker Systems

    @scott, when you log into your Rock's BBQ account - what is the status of the order? I decided to place one last order and get the most recent blower motor and a few new probes. Purchased on 12/7 and just received them today. So Rock still seems to be shipping stuff.

    Rock's Bar-b-que has stopped selling Stoker Systems

    I'm sure they will make good on it. My guess is that he isn't doing this full time now that he has stopped selling the product.

    Rock's Bar-b-que has stopped selling Stoker Systems

    I have a blower and probes without the lights in the plugs. Is there any reason to get versions with the lights?

    Dry Rub Help...

    So the family really enjoyed the rub. Adding extra salt to the meat afterwards didn't enhance it much - so I think the salt levels are fine. A few things to consider next time - reduce the black pepper a bit and my wife suggested trying lemon salt vs. kosher salt next time. Fun to experiment...

    Dry Rub Help...

    Ok, I resized the recipe so that it is 25% - to experiment. The color looked different so I doubled the suggested ancho and smoked paprika. Going to use it on some pork tonight and will report back... Brown sugar 1/4 Cup KOSHER salt 1/8 Cup (I cut back on the salt, as you can always add more...

    Dry Rub Help...

    Thanks - I'll try that. My guess is that you are right about the red pepper flakes as I didn't see a lot of white color in the rub (other than the salt flakes). I agree on making my own rubs but I didn't have time for one smoke and grabbed something at the local market and really liked it...

    Dry Rub Help...

    What a great starting point - thanks Chris! Anyone have a guess what the “pepper” ingredient could be seeing that black pepper and cayenne pepper are listed later on in the list?

    Dry Rub Help...

    I purchased a dry rub from a local grocery store that I really like. I'm hoping to create something similar and was hoping that this group could guide me with typical ratios for rubs. The ingredients in order are: Brown sugar Flake salt Ground ancho chili Pepper (not sure what this would be...

    Rock's Bar-b-que has stopped selling Stoker Systems

    It looks like the Stoker Systems are no longer being sold - which is too bad, as it is a great ATCS. They will continue to support existing customers with probes, blowers and adapters. From their website... "We have discontinued selling Stoker Systems. Due to high cost of manufacturing it is...

    Dodged a bullet

    I just got a new Stoker and had to assign all the blowers/probes, etc. Once setup you almost never have to do this again but I can easily see how that happened to you if your were significantly changing your setup. Glad you got the save!

    Plan B for lighting coals

    I have always used a weber chimney for lighting coals but have just stopped delivery of our newspaper as we generally read enough news online. I am looking at other ways to light my charcoal without a supply of newspaper. I have an electric loop somewhere but dragging out an extension cord has...
