    more HIGH HEAT baby backs

    jim, i’ve probably made this a 50 times since you posted the recipe, always with great results. we sold our house in favor of condos in nyc and fl, neither allows smokers or bbqs, so i’ve tried about 20 oven-based recipes, each worse than the last. i was about to give up but decided to give...

    which smokey joe?

    thanks for the clarity, I've had a lot of luck with high heat pork and brisket, so maybe 4 hours is all I need...And I love the forum's famous 90 min rib recipe so that's a go...

    which smokey joe?

    thanks darryl, couple of thoughts. I wonder if a rib rack where the ribs are standing on their sides would help increase capacity? And I'm thinking with some sort of diffuser, I could reclaim the whole cooking surface? I did a lot of smoking with my kettle grill before purchasing a wsm, thinking...

    which smokey joe?

    thanks rich, I'm intrigued by the jumbo since I doesn't seem like I'd need to purchase additional equipment/make modifications. If you don't mind, some questions: - my wsm I used to get around 8 hours of burn, so a pork shoulder would generally be two loads. how many hours of burn do you get...

    which smokey joe?

    Hi, Once our kids graduated college and I retired, I started favoring my performer over my wsm. About a year ago, my wife popped out of bed one morning and said "kids are out of the house, it's far too big for us, let's move back to NYC!". So now we have an apartment in NYC with a storage...

    pork belly burnt ends texture?

    I've never made pbbes but they sure look good. we occasionally order roast pork belly in Manhattan's Chinatown, some of the pieces have very little meat and mostly consist of gelatinous fat. I know some people love this but we prefer meat with a little crispy fat. for those that have made...

    indirect with no lid?

    sorry, I see the confusion now. We have a vacation condo in a community with a communal, big flat grill with no lid. They don't allow individual BBQs or smokers (I know, what were we thinking when we bought?). I could add a little wood to the fire, move the meat to the side and cover the whole...

    indirect with no lid?

    Hi, At home I do most of grilling using indirect heat with the lid on my weber, anyone have any ideas how to do that without a lid? I was thinking about purchasing an inexpensive, aluminum roasting pan and placing it upside down over the meat... best,

    where to start?

    Hi, about ten years ago I thought about building a heatmeter but was really busy with work, bought a bbq guru digiq and promised myself I'd build one when I retired. Well, that day here, I retired about 1.5 years ago and my digiq broke this week. I don't own a soldering iron, so I can...

    logistics for twenty pounds of pork shoulder for a fund raiser?

    thanks guys, Timothy's method of double wrapping/cooler worked perfectly. The meat moved from 170 to 200 pretty quickly (a couple of hours), I took it off the wsm at 3pm, double wrapped and into the cooler (somehow I lost a sandwich size amount of meat and bark in the process), out of the...
