    Adjustable Hat Clip (am I missing something?)

    Thanks for the input, but not exactly what I'm looking for. If the part that holds the light were rotated 90 degs and placed further toward the end, so it would sit right at the end of the bill, it might work. You'd think it would be easy to make for a machinist, which is why I'm surprised...

    Adjustable Hat Clip (am I missing something?)

    Hello All, Long time no post. I've been wanting an adjustable (baseball) hat clip for about 5 years now, but I still haven't been able to find one. I know there are plenty of lights with straps, but I don't get the popularity. Maybe some can enlighten (pardon the pun) me. My biggest fault with...

    RIP Nitro

    It's been awhile since I posted in here, but incase anyone remembers me. Yesterday I put my dog down in his favorite spot, the garage. He loved being out there with us hanging with the guys. It will always be "Nitro's Place". Now's he's with grandpa, and I know they're happy to be together. Rest...

    The Big Green Egg......

    Try shooting for a slightly lower temp, 190-195. Also remember the temp will rise (5-10 deg) during the resting period, depending on how long you let it rest. Never smoked a fattie before, but I heard they're good. It's on my list also. :) Good luck with your future cooks, and feel free to...

    The Big Green Egg......

    It was very moist indeed. ;) Pork Butt is pretty forgiving. The key is to cook it long enough to be tender (190 deg, +/-10). There is plenty of fat content inside the meat to keep it moist. Here is a great article on Pork Butt in general: http://www.virtualweberbullet.com/porkbuttselect.html...

    The Big Green Egg......

    I didn't brine this one. I just coated it with mustard and rub, then covered it in plastic rap overnight in the fridge. Not sure I will do anything different next time, other than try a different rub and/or smoke chips.

    With the Adjustable Rig you can put the spider below with the small CI grate, and the half circle grate on top. Works perfect! ;)

    The Big Green Egg......

    SmokeLaw, it's not that hard to learn, especially if you have great online resources. Here's a great one to start with: http://www.nakedwhiz.com/ceramic.htm Bthrel, yes I normal use the T-Rex method or a variation of it, unless I'm in a hurry. It was ready to storm when I cooked those last...

    The Big Green Egg......

    I have a couple Lodge pieces, but most are Griswold. I like the old (antique) pans better, because they're a little lighter and have a smooth surface. But if I go camping, I'll take the Lodge. They're a lot cheaper to replace if they get damaged. I get specialty cuts like steaks etc. from a...

    The Big Green Egg......

    Thanks Brian, Yeah, I'm a Cast Iron freak. I have about 6 skillets, a chicken fryer, 2 dutch ovens and a couple griddles. Not too mention the multiple CI grates for both the gasser and the Egg. Oh, and I can't forget the Wok! :laughing: BTW, here's the Adjustable Rig I mentioned...
