  1. I've been using this on my steaks lately. No particular reason on the brand, just what my local meat market has in stock right now. Here's some inspiration.......
  2. I've never pre warmed in an oven but I always leave steaks on the counter for at least a half hour before they hit the grill. I do this also with deer steaks and top sirloin.
  3. Searing a ribeye in a cast iron pan is also a great way to cook a steak.
  4. Depends on what you use to marinade.
  5. Salt, pepper and garlic is all I use on steaks.
  6. Starlings in my yard get the pellet gun treatment and usually get retrieved by my Brittany.

    How would you know?
  8. Most of the time camper mattresses are a bit shorter but the width is the same as a house mattress. You'll have to determine if it is a regular sized mattress or a camper sized one before replacing if that's the route you go. We have had good luck with mattress toppers that we have purchased. Not sure what brands or where my wife purchased them but they make a camper bed much more comfy.
  9. They are great on a gas grill but even better on a pellet grill or Weber charcoal.
  10. Fast cooks don't usually end up with a ton of smoke no matter what kind of smoker or grill you use. You do get a nice light smokey flavor in steaks even when done hot and fast on a pellet grill. For more smoke you could try a reverse sear.
  11. For sure not as much smoke output as a stick burner or charcoal smoker but some people don't care for heavy smoke. If you do like more smoke you can just use a smoke tube to add more smoke and also for cold smoking.
  12. Let me know when you need a half hog, I may be able to help.
  13. Yep, that's Dan's son Ricky's house. Do you live in the rambler next door (to the south) with the walk-out basement door that faces north? If so, I lived in that house about 30 years ago.
  14. Well, I shouldn't blame it all on her because I don't want a bunch of grills and smokers sitting around either. Used to have a gas grill, a weber and a couple of smokers at home and now only have the pellet grill. Up north we still have a weber and a pellet grill but that pellet grill is older and doesn't have the searing feature.
  15. I am a fan of pellet grills, If Leech was still around he'd probably tell you all about it. In my opinion it all depends on what you want to cook with it. For my taste, a Pitboss or Louisiana Grill are the best option. I like to be able to do as much stuff on one utensil as possible because my wife doesn't want a bunch of grills and smokers sitting around. I have a Louisiana Grill at home and an older Pitboss at my camper. The Pitboss and Louisiana Grill are made by the same company and both offer a flame broiler, searing option. That way I can smoke all the meats I want and still be able to grill things like burgers and steaks hot and fast. I use it for everything, even things I would normally cook in the oven. I really feel there is not much I can't do in my pellet grills.
  16. Here's some recent pics I had on my phone. Ribeye roast, Lamb chops and Easter hams.
  17. Actually I heated up some of their smoked pork chops on my pellet grill tonight but I didn't take any pictures.
  18. Yes. You might remember Dan? I have to say, I think their pork is different than store bought. Much better and more tender.
  19. I'll check into it and see what I can do. They have actually been getting most of their pork from a farmer in Gaylord who feeds the pigs a specialty diet of all natural feeds but he charges more. Not sure if that's something you would want or not. They haven't been working with any other local producers lately so that might be an issue as well.
  20. What do you mean by unprocessed? Just killed and halved? The only reason I could think would be that they would have a half hog to get rid of all the cuts. Or did they give you a different reason?
