    Question before I sell my 590 and get a stick burner

    The Rec Teq temps are not nearly as exact as their advertising claims. I started using a Fireboard for cooks due to app failures and the temp swings are way more than what the RT temp reporting is. Since Fireboard is close to the gold standard in temp reporting I am far more willing to trust its...

    Smoke Daddy The “Heavy D” Stick Burning Heat Diffuser

    Beef Neck Roast

    Never knew the cut existed until I was gifted one. Plan to cook low and slow like a brisket. Any alternate suggestions would be appreciated.

    Installed Power Cord - Come on, really!!

    Grill and app work well. Besides when plugged in, most of the cord is vacant from the reel.
