    Yessir, indeed.
    This happens to not be my 1st rodeo with pork on the smoker, but a first time at two pieces at once that are lower weights than I’m used to.
    I’m accustomed to 12 lb. Boston butts and can walk the dog on that anytime.
    I want to also say thank you, and I do appreciate your tutelage Skeeter:) :handshake:

    OK, 90* outside and according to my smfart phone, feels like 97* and I'm in for the day. This has been a hot week as it always is for hay 20190705_164334.jpg 20190705_174417.jpg
    Now to catch up a little on the new hardware, specifically the Primo Kamado. The pics can do the talking. 20190630_174501.jpg

    This is the "innards" that I got on line. It has the lower 1/2 circle heat shields, two 1/2 circle grates and the circle that rests on the "fire bowl" that supports them at various levels. This set up I tried for indirect & direct heat. I was going for the reverse sear that has me curious. It was much too much for a rookie as I didn't have enough heat or a nice thick steak. It did eat well, and I through a potato on not long enough to cook it but it had a nice twinge of smokey flavor even finished in the microwave. 20190630_191642.jpg

    Here's our first pizza. Mrs. fuelrod tried some Italian flour for the dough, we agree that her other recipes are better but it's a learning curve all the way around. I had it cranked up to about 550* and although the dough was lacking, it cooked nicely. 20190703_185621.jpg She floured our brand new pizza peel for the first one, didn't slide off onto the stone very well. Same go's with the 2nd off a cookie sheet. It got stretched out and mis shaped but it also "ate well''. In this pic I have both the pizza stone in and the heat deflectors. Does this seem right? The bottom of the crust was nicely done.

    You can see where we were tugging on it to get it on the stone. There was no sliding off the peel happening.:eek:
