    Black Friday

    They have sales constantly though sitewide is usually only a couple of times a year. Usually if you are looking for a specific item you can do better to wait for an individual sale. For example the Signals BBQ Alarm was 30% off back in the summer. Of course if you need/want something now...

    Black Friday

    Only good sale for pellets I've seen. Rural King seems to have the best prices on pellets. Unfortunately they are only a regional chain and nothing in Texas. Best I can do is Atwoods and they are $8.99 there, which is still not a bad price. Unfortunately they only carry a couple of flavors.

    Hot Pellet Grill Deals

    Too bad all they have is the ultimate blend pellets. If I'm doing a mixed blend, I would prefer to pick the flavors.

    What are you making for Thanksgiving on your RecTeq?

    We have a freezer and a freezer/fridge combo in the garage and they are so full we can't put anything else in them. When we moved them out there I couldn't understand why we needed them and how we would fill them up. Now I want a small chest freezer so can actually buy meat when it is on...

    What are you making for Thanksgiving on your RecTeq?

    I'm not sure. The inlaws are coming over and my wife's 3 cousins and 2 of them are vegetarians. I was thinking some kind of small turkey on the RT700 since the inlaws are bringing a ham. When I was at the grocery store earlier this week they were totally out of turkeys so I may not find one...

    Vegetables Jalapeno recipe without cream cheese

    Since crab meat is $20/lb I can see why they wouldn't use that anymore. I have seen a couple of seafood recipes that sounded good but they all still used cream cheese.

    Costco Run

    At $5 to $6 per package it isn't much better and then over $2 for the buns.

    Costco Run

    No way I'm paying $11.99/lb for brisket. I've already noticed I'm grilling less now that meat has doubled in price the last couple of months. Hoping it is just a temporary spike or may have to sell some of my grills do to lack of use.

    I've noticed the same thing of some of the steaks at Wild Fork, which is a popular place to order meat.

    2021 Holiday Sales Thread

    Not looking good for pellet sales this year. All the "farm" type stores around me already have their BF ads out and no one has pellets on sale. I was hoping they would get down to $5 like last year. I haven't seen Rural Kings' ad yet but it doesn't do me any good anyway. It would be a 500...

    Little more smoke profile

    It is more about how much smoke flavor you like. I like a lot. Cooking a brisket on a stick burner and my RT700 are night and day. I tried 12 hours on the RT700 at 200 and then upped it to finish it off and it just OK as far as smoke flavor goes. Now I will cook my briskets on my stick...

    Favorite Pellet Brand / Flavor

    As others stated, it is personal taste. I've gone 18+ hours on the pellet smoker for a brisket and it just wasn't enough smoke flavor for me. I'm usually using mesquite flavored pellets. I also always take some of the left overs to a couple of my coworkers. When I switched from my stick...

    Favorite Pellet Brand / Flavor

    If you are like some and use it a lot, especially on long cooks, that 100lbs won't last that long. Depending on your location, BF is coming up and there can be some great deals. Last year I know 1 place and maybe 2 had the Bear Mountain pellets for around $4 for the 20lb bags. Depending on...

    New Router

    I did notice on the new orbi 6E they now have as a selling point that you can give the 2.4ghz band its own SSID. They make it sound like it is something special for this router. My old 6 year old router does that. I do like the fact it has a 10G WAN port and a 2.5G LAN port. I never...

    New Router

    Just got an email from Netgear that their new 6E Orbi was up for pre-order. $1500!!!! I would love to know how many they sell at this price. I griped for days when I paid $300 for my current Orbi system.

    New Router

    The corporate breeches is the bad part. I just got informed a week ago that the government agency that provided my vaccinations was breached. So whatever medical data they had on the 100k+ people they vaccinated is now out there somewhere.

    Purchaseed a 700, what modifications should I consider/add on?

    Same for me. My wireless has been flawless other than the initial setup. Unfortunately my system has the 2 and 5 ghz bands using the same name and their is no way to change it. All my other 2.4ghz toys have had no issues on initial setup but the RT700 refused to connect. I had to turn the...

    I agree. If a true hacker wants to break into your system, he/she most likely can do it.

    Unfortunately some of these things are regional and hard to get. For instance, my favorite all purpose spice is Pat's Of Henderson Perioux but unless you go to Lake Charles, LA, you can't get it. And actually since COVID they have stopped making it. I was lucky and my wife's cousin gave us...
