PostForum: Cookers   Posted: Tue Mar 24 15 5:39 am   Subject: Thoughts on Stainless ?
There are a lot of stainless grills out there that don't warp. Also, every commercial oven is full of stainless, and it doesn't warp either. I'm not saying it can't warp, but if you don't know what yo ...

I have done tuning plates and RF. One thing I like about RF is once it's built, you don't ever have to worry about it again. I can live with 10 or 15 degree temp imbalances. What I don't want to have ...

Don't get sucked into looking at all the BDS's shown here (Beautiful Drum Smokers). If you want a proper UDS, punch 3 1" holes 120 degrees apart (NOT on the vertical weld seam). Screw your air va ...

Tongue weight should be about 10% of the total loaded weight.

The longer the trailer is the easier it is to back up.

My guess is that your propane burners would get your smokehouse to 250F. Have you really thought about this? Two big propane burners running wide open? You are going to go through a lot of propane! It ...

I hate to say it but I don't measure either the mayonnaise or the cheese. Use enough mayo to make all of the corn sticky, then use a generous amount of grated cotija cheese. Best I can do, but I don't ...

Yes, Restaurant Depot carries pork bellies. In the NW, Cash & Carry stores have it too, but you have to go into their -20 degree walk-in freezer to get it. RD's has skin on, CC's doesn't. Both abo ...

I can assure you that the enormous work and expense of replacing your 1/2" thick firebox with one 1/4" thick won't get you anywhere towards solving this problem.
