    Meat inflation ruining barbecue

    @Motodad1776 yeah that's absolutely the scary part dude not the worst of it by far. More and more regulations on farmers every day and their inflation costs to raise products on top of it. No end in sight. It REALLY sucks.

    RecTeq turning off app remote start up feature?

    Didn't want to join this conversation but this gentleman and a few others have correctly identified the issue. I work in the construction industry as an electrician and this issue being discussed here is no different than any other that may exist in the world. The world has become a CYA (cover...

    Question on trimming a brisket

    I watched multiple videos on trimming brisket and I think it was an Aaron Franklin video where he recommended trimming that fat out. And for me it works great it allows the brisket to lay more flat and my results have been that the two temperatures flat and point track more evenly through the...

    Chuck Roast

    Just like brisket the way I do them. They are generally smaller cook quicker. But same temp philosophy. Wrap em at 165 170. Problem has become they are not much cheaper than brisket, at least in Ohio. So I'll just go brisket

    Bull Free cold smoker is standard on the rt 700!

    Lots of great info already, I'll just add my 2 cents. You mentioned the controller change I'd investigate the auger settings minimum feed rate and think there's a setting you can change from the app. I started playing with minimum feed rate(accessible on the controller) on my bfg, it was at like...
