Re: ProQ question

Holy crap this works. WSM with just the pan in place and some foil to catch anything that drips is genius. Control vents with bottom cents as described. Will not bother using water again. What did you cook tonight? So in respect to your original question, I assume the ProQ Elite 20 would behave the...

Re: ProQ question

The pan doesn't get damaged from having high heat under it with no water? Might have to try this tonight Just be sure to double foil it. Makes for easier clean up. Mine has gone for 18hrs and still had heaps of heatbeads left, some even unlit. And watch it on the way up as it can overshoot easily. ...

Re: ProQ question

Does everyone always use water in their WSM/ProQ?

I used it for the first couple of cooks then went dry pan and have never looked back. I have filled it a few times since and can notice no difference in the moisture of the meat? I just find it takes ages to get to temp and uses triple the fuel.

Re: Akorn and Dragon General Discussion

I found with my L&S cook on the weekend I had the bottom vent at 0.25 and the top around 0.75.

Held 120 for 4 hours

Re: Akorn and Dragon Dome Temps

The Standard gauge will be a $10 replacement item, so that tells you something. Also also probes are not suitable for taking pit temperature, they will give you an idea, but on the Maverick ET733 or 735 you need to tell the probe what it is measuring, because the logic it uses is different. Cheers ...

Sorry about the blurry picture but you can see a fair bit of time elapsed. Over the 5 hour cook i think the highest i saw the dome thermo was 90C.

Re: Akorn and Dragon Dome Temps

No. But i had a probe on the grill and a probe just dropped in top air vent. Both read about the same.

I'll take the dome thermo out when i get a chance. I use thermometers all day at work and have checked the calibration of my igrill's. They are spot on.

Akorn and Dragon Dome Temps

I found my dome thermometer about 50-60C out yesterday. The dome was about 75 and my igrill about 130. For searing and pizzas it doesnt matter but low n slow get a good digi.

Re: Junior Joe size

We already have a OTS and a WSM, plus the 6 burner gassy we hardly use anymore.

I'll check out the Dragon as well then.

Junior Joe size

Hi There is a BBQ Galore opening up near us and they are having some big deals. They have the Junior Joe going out for half price. The wife and I have been toying with the idea of getting a kamado next to add to our bbq collection. Is the junior big enough to cook pizzas on? Will a stone fit inside ...

Re: just bought a WSM, noob here, please be nice

Your gonna love your WSM! I used water the first few times, but now I usually just run foiled pan. I find it uses less coals and I have done 18hr+ cooks with it and still have unburnt heatbeads in the charcoal ring. I buy 16kg boxes of heatbeads from bunnings when they are on special. I generally us...

Re: What Did You Cook Part 11 - January 1 2015

On the weekend I cooked 2 butts in the WSM. One was rubbed with magic dust, the other mustard and magic dust. The one with the mustard was miles better than the one without. Much better bark, cooked faster and was much softer and juicer. Made pulled pork tacos with guacamole and mango salsa and then...
