    Grilling Notes - Beef Jerky Thursday - 14 January 2021

    Thanks, I actually have a rack, and just didn't use it, but had so much fun with this one, I'm going to do another next week. Probably forced to use another flank steak, but would like to find a Top Round or London Broil, but will probably have to venture out to one of our meat markets as our...

    Grilling Notes - Beef Jerky Thursday - 14 January 2021

    I will keep this story short, as it actually is one that covers about 30 years.......Before retiring to Arkansas we lived in the National Capital Region, in Northern Virginia. While in Virginia, I was a season ticket holder of Richmond International Raceway, yes, I am a life long NASCAR nut...

    Grilling Notes - Stuffed Chicken Breasts Monday - 11 January 2021

    This is a grill event that I mostly captured from a comment in one of the Recteq F'Book groups. It sounded good, so I copy, pasted, and sent it to the "Main Chef", she said, yep lets do it, and walla, here we are. It's good she has a clue what she's doing because after reading the post, my...

    Glad it worked out for you guys. Looks pretty darn great! Also looks like you did a much better job with Time & Temperature control than we did on our last attempt.....<grin> Thanks for sharing.

    Grilling Notes: Sunday Pizza on the Bullseye - 3 January 2021

    sadly it was very avoidable, but we just missed the timing on this one.......I suspect the next one, we'll Under Cook as we typically "over correct" when we screw a cook up.......<grin>

    Grilling Notes: Sunday Pizza on the Bullseye - 3 January 2021

    ....One could understandably scoff at my contention that a whole scale Cable/Internet/Phone service outage would impact a a simple pizza cook on the Bullseye.......I would.....but hear me out.......one of the down sides of living where we do is, when you lose some infrastructures (electricity...

    does it do hot n fast?

    Tom, YES, the only thing I'd recommend is a set of Grill Grates, in my opinion, they make "Hot & Fast" steaks easy and reliable on the Bullseye. We've varied our experiences between 450 & Riot depending on the cut of steak and the thickness, but in my opinion, the 380 can reliably do a...

    Grilling Notes - Surf & Turf Christmas, 25 December 2020

    Hope everyone is having a safe, healthy and Merry Christmas so far. No White Christmas this year for us in the Ouachita Forrest, however we are getting seasonal temps this year (last year we were in short sleeves). Today we are taking on a "Surf & Turf theme", since it's only Deb and myself...

    Delayed Online Notifications (Temp status....)?

    Haven't seen that specific problem.....yet, but we've not started grilling yet either....<grin> My guess (and it is certainly ONLY a guess), is they are having load problems with their servers. From a grill control perspective, we've seen no problems, but those things that rely on their...

    First & foremost: Merry Christmas to everyone, we hope your families & loved ones are safe, healthy, and having a great Christmas so far! This evening was our first attempt at Shrimp and Grits, but just using the Trailblazer to smoke the shrimp (everything else was done inside on the stove)...

    Delayed Online Notifications (Temp status....)?

    I've seen some discussions ref. problems with the wifi apps, but what we're noticing today, is the WiFi application seems to be working fine, however the online notification of temp status seems to be anywhere from 15-20 min delayed. Wonder if it's a "Christmas Eve" traffic load problem...

    Grilling Notes: Spatch-Cocked Sunday (Smoked) - 20 December 2020

    This grill is VERY similar to the Spatch-Cocked chicken we did back in early November, but wanted to try it on the Bullseye vice the Trailblazer. The Bullseye performed with no problems, also configured with a water filled drip pan sitting on the heat diffuser - no problems at all. Grill...

    Grilling Notes - Ribeyes on the Bullseye, Friday 18 December 2020

    Ever have a cut of beef that you simply aren't very good at? Seems like these Ribeyes (at least the last two cooks of them) have my number. Nothing special about this evening's cook - no reverse sear, just cooking a couple of Ribeyes on the Bullseye w/Grill Grates. About the only thing I DID do...

    Naked Bullseye Pic

    I recognize that picture, I had to do the very same thing, but I had to cut the tie wraps so I could get enough play in the "red & white" ignitor wires, to re-seat the ignitor...... Good luck, it actually went back together better than I thought it would.......

    Grilling Notes - Reverse Sear Ribeye Tuesday (Trailblazer & Bullseye) - 8 December 2020

    Agree 100%, I also wonder if the "shallower" cooking area contributes to the higher heat. Don't get me wrong, I really like this grill, we're just learning all of it's nuances, especially compared to the Trailblazer. We're just in the "learning process". One reason I like this forum, it...

    Grilling Notes - Reverse Sear Ribeye Tuesday (Trailblazer & Bullseye) - 8 December 2020

    sdynak, so I think there were probably multiple factors (having had some time to reflect). 1) Clearly the Bullseye is hotter than our Trailblazer, not 100% sure WHY, but pretty sure it just is. 2) Thinner cut of beef that our previous "reverse sear", and 3) we used the Grill Plates, which...
