    Dave's Camp Chef Woodwind 36 WIFI Experiences

    Lew - I have not run the Camp Chef at that low of a temperature yet, but I can one of these days and report back.

    Dave's Smokefire EX6 Experiences

    I overshot the cook a bit. I need to put my temp probe back inside of the cooking chamber because before the firmware update, my EX6 would typically lag below the set point. However at 265 degrees, I probably should have pulled the ribs 30 minutes earlier. They still came out very tasty, but...

    Dave's Smokefire EX6 Experiences

    Yeah. I had a 17x40' patio cover installed about seven years ago with three skylight strips, two fans, two track lights and three lantern lights. Everything is configured with Philips Hue bulbs so I can set the colors and brightness however I like. I installed mini-track lights 4' back from...

    Dave's Smokefire EX6 Experiences

    I've been craving some ribs, so today is the day. I'm doing a 2x2x30 method at 265 degrees as set on the controller. I just wrapped them with some dry rub, BBQ sauce, apple juice, butter and honey. Two more hours and I'll unwrap them to see how they look. If the bones have good pullback...

    First brisket on the SmokeFire.🔥

    Nice. I love brisket. It's my favorite BBQ. When I ordered from Costco the other day, I almost added a prime brisket to my cart but I didn't.

    New Welded Chute

    Weber is asking me for pictures of my chute (dump pellets and run it out of pellets). I kind of feel like I've done enough testing, so I just told them to send me the part. I am going to smoke ribs tomorrow, so I really don't want to be burning fuel for no reason. It's obvious there's a...

    New Welded Chute

    Ah. Yes, I thought the original design was junk. Leaked pellet dust and had many odd angles/places for pellets to get caught on. I sent them an email yesterday asking if I could get this since mine still doesn't perform as well as I'd hope.

    What the heck is a welded chute?

    Dave's Smokefire EX6 Experiences

    I got a big order delivered today from Costco. It's going to be angus burgers a bit later. Tomorrow I have a rack of beef back "dino" ribs that Safeway thought to substitute for baby back ribs. lol. I have some new rub to try on those. Trying to get back to some sense of normality around...

    SmokeFire and Spirit 3-burner/Genesis x000/Silver/Gold/Platinum grates DO interchange

    Goo callout. I already did the grate upgrade on mine. I also have the Weber gourmet kit sitting in the box that I may test fit one of these days. I'm going to modify the left over 4th grate I bought to work with the gourmet kit. I have no intention of replacing the upper grate. I think it's...

    First significant software update for SmokeFire on the way.

    Thanks. I went out and repeated the process but let it go through the full shutdown which took over 15 minutes. Restarted it and the firmware was up to date. I'm surprised at the clunky firmware update process. I started it up and brought it up to 250 degrees. I didn't notice a huge...

    First significant software update for SmokeFire on the way.

    I couldn’t get mine to update. Tried twice yesterday. When you hit shutdown, did you wait for it to tell you to power it off or just flip the switch right after?

    Dave's Smokefire EX6 Experiences

    Out here it was encouraged. If we all keep going to the same places, this thing will continue to spread. I agree. I'm just trying to honor the stay at home order. I can do that as long as I have food and water.

    Dave's Smokefire EX6 Experiences

    Just a quick update. Things are crazy out here in California. My entire office of over 350 has switched to working remotely. I've left the house twice the last five days (gas station for my truck and an extra five gallons in a gas can) and to drop a cable off at my office for a fellow...

    This should be a Weber

    I've owned a larger Assassin 28 which is a gravity feed smoker. I wasn't overly impressed. I think to each their own, but I prefer pellet cookers.

    Dave's Smokefire EX6 Experiences

    I'm pretty much done with the shelf project. I do plan to cut another piece of aluminum angle for the left shelf when I get a little time, but otherwise it's a wrap. This project was improvised from the start but I'm quite happy with how it came out. It did turn out better in both function...

    EX4 Firepot Flame

    There's no quick fix. It's an airflow + over-fueling issue. I have hunch the pellet slide might have something to do with it. I have a smoke machine I picked up so I can test the fan at 24 volts. While testing, I'll start dropping pellets down the slide and see how that affects the airflow...

    Dave's Smokefire EX6 Experiences

    I took a stroll out into the garage this morning to check out the results and I'm pretty happy. These could honestly use a second coat of epoxy to remove a lot of the little surface defects, but honestly they're for a BBQ. I've got a fair amount of time put into these, so I'm inclined to call...

    Dave's Smokefire EX6 Experiences

    haha! Yours are almost done as well. Like I mentioned to you when you placed the order, they'll have my phone number in place of the SmokeFire logo to remind you each time you're cooking tasty food to give me a call. :cool:
