    Miller High Life Nostalgia... (signs, lights, clocks)

    Hey, guys. I don't know if I can post this here, but a few months ago my old man lost his battle with lung cancer and I want to unload some of his beloved "stuff." I need some help in finding what the following might be worth (besides Ebay), or if you know where I can go to find some...

    Best Ribs In The Universe (BRITU) question...

    I've always wanted to try this technique of smoking baby backs, and might just do so this coming weekend, but I have a question. From the VWB page (found here) its says to: and then goes on to say: And that is confusing to me. Will I need to adjust the bottom vents to maintain the cooker...

    Show: Ugly Delicious (Netflix)

    Have any of you guys watched the show Ugly Delicious on Netflix? It's a cooking/travel/documentary series, and it's really well done, and quite entertaining. The episode on dry-aging steaks really has me wanting to try to do a rib roast like that. Maybe this fall I'll tackle that one. 🤔...

    Vortex'd Chicken Thighs...

    Nothing special, but I still thought I would post for us foodies... Forgot to post up these pic from this past weekend. The thighs that look like they're done, are indeed done, and we took them off right after the pic was taken. They were marinaded in Blues Hog Tennessee Red sauce. It's such...

    Saturday Babybacks...

    Saturday in the great state of Iowa was picture perfect weather (80° light breeze & no humidity) so I decided to give the snake method on the kettle a try w/ some baby backs. The snake method really impressed me, and the kettle held temps pretty darn good! Ribs were great! Thanks for...

    Dry-Aging a Rib Roast - Need Advice

    So over the Labor Day weekend me and a close group of guys have decided we want to slice rib-eyes from a dry-aged rib roast. The plan is to use Guy's technique for the dry-aging process alone (found here) with cheese cloths, but to leave it in the fridge for more like a week. Or longer? I don't...

    The one that got away...

    So I've been looking for a 22" replacement for my old (but free) kettle so I saved the search word "Weber" on Craigslist and I get an email of every add that has the word "weber" in it. I've been wanting a colored one... blue, green, and preferable red. Well Saturday morning I woke up late...

    Vortex Question (Pork)

    Do any of you have what we call "pork ribeyes" in your area? I don't know if it's a local cut or not, but I believe it's basically a pork chop w/ some of the loin too(?). IDK - I'm no butcher, clearly. Anyway, I was thinking of trying to do something like the grilled fried chicken on the...

    STL Ribs - FAIL

    It's bound to happen to us all... Right? In my nearly 20 years of BBQ'ing ribs, I've never really messed up ribs like I did last weekend. The ribs were a brand I had never bought before, but they looked amazingly good! No much fat... trimmed up... silver skin came off nicely... etc, etc...

    Fire pit fun...

    I revisited a fire pit method I learned about several years ago, and thought I would share it with you guys here if you're interested. I know it as an "upside down fire" and it's pretty self explanatory (largest logs on the bottom, and go smaller as you go up). It's a great method, and given...

    Wings N' Things (Vortex)

    Grilled some wings, drummies and a chicken breast for my wife the other night and thought I would share it with my fellow foodies. I haven't grilled drummies for some time, and to be quite honest, I'd much rather have a thigh than a drummie/leg anymore. Maybe I'm getting old.

    Thighs on the Kettle w/ Vortex

    I had never done thighs on the Vortex before... Looks like I'll never be doing them any other way again. Enjoy! We sure did. :cool:

    Local grocery store ad: Pork Temple Cutlets (?)

    I got the local grocery stores weekly add in an email this morning and they have "pork temple cutlet" in there for $2.99/lb. I had to Google them to see exactly what they are, and not surprisingly they are a part of the "jowl/shoulder" cut and are supposedly pretty good(?). Anyone have any...

    Brisket Newb - Teach Me Brisket 101

    I'm sure there's a thread here somewhere, and if so, please point me in the right direction, but I'm wanting to smoke my very first brisket tomorrow (morning?) and make some KC-style burnt ends, and I've never done either. I've done plenty of reading and watching videos, but I still have a...

    Kettle Vortex'd Buffalo Wings

    I want to first start by saying if there's anyone on here who loves chicken wings on the grill, but you've yet to try grilling them on a Kettle w/ the Vortex, you're sadly missing out. These, in my humble opinion, are the best grilled wings I've ever made, and quite possibly be some of the best...

    Using a brine to Vortex chicken wings on a Weber Kettle...

    I asked this question in my post in the Introduction forum, but I didn't get a reply let alone an answer... Has anyone ever tried using a simple brine on chicken wings before Vortex'ing them on a kettle? A simple brine of Kosher salt and baking powder (like here). I think I may just give it...

    Hello from The Hawkeye State!

    Hey guys, Craw here from the great state of Iowa. Go Hawks! :cool: Long time (on and off) lurker, but I thought I would finally register and introduce myself. This is a incredible resource for us outdoor cooking enthusiasts, and I hope I can share a little bit of my knowledge/advice with all...
