Gadgets and Gizmos / Re: iGrill?

I have an igrill2 and igrill mini. They both use bluetooth so the range is ok around the house. They are pretty good but I always check the food with an instant read thermometer a few degrees early just to make sure I don't over cook. There are a couple wifi thermometers out there like tappeque and icelsius. I have not tried either but the reviews seem pretty good. It would be great to be able to watch the cook from my phone at the beach or golf course.

I used Italian dressing the first time and found the vinegar flavor overwhelming and ruined the shrimp.

I live in Panama City, FL. and get some great fresh shrimp. I have smoked them many times and I put them unpeeled in a foil baking dish with melted butter and Cavender's Greek seasoning. I use Apple wood. If they were over smokey, I would not use Hickory. I only use that on steaks. I tried them peeled one time, but I was not happy with the results. The shrimp were stringy and tough. I love Old Bay too, but I only use it on steamed seafood and French Fries.

Anything Goes!! / Re: Weber Genesis Grill - Which one to purchase?

I have the E 330 and I like it. I have never used the side burner but the sear burner makes a big difference. It makes the left side of the grill super hot and gives a great sear. I also like the way the bottom of the grill has a large drip pan that slides out for easy cleaning. I bought the chip box for it and I've found that a chunk of wood on the grate works better. I recently bought a Weber Smoky Joe small charcoal grill. I like the reverse sear on charcoal better than on the gas grill.

I just had the same problem. Smoker got up to over 300 and it would not cycle on and off, it just stayed on. Called Steve and he was very helpful and nice. He sent me a new temp control under warranty. I changed it out this past weekend, tested it and problem solved.   

Great news! I will buy the retrofit as soon as it available.

I vote for Cherry. I just did a turkey breast and it was great.

Thanks everyone!! I called Steve and the new temp control is on the way. I think it was slowly going bad. That would explain the over cooked ribs on my smoke before the turkey and the chunk of charcoal that started as a chuck roast. I am looking forward to great food again.

My smoker temp probe was over 350. The element never turned off. Before now I could turn the temp knob down and see it turn off. Now there is just on and off.

It shuts off if I turn it all the way off. Not like it used to before. I could find the place where it would turn off. Now it seems as thought it is on or off. Thanks

I started a turkey breast about 1.5 hours ago. It seems like the temperature knob
its working right. It turns on but the temp went super high and never cycled like it usually does. Any ideas?

I used to use MGW, but I have found that has much higher quality wood with no bark for a great price. They even send a card that tells you the moisture content of the wood in your order. I got the 1 cubic foot box double filet with Cherry Maple and Oak. I still have to split some of the chunks, but I use a small hatchet and its not a problem. I smoke all the time and have barely used a quarter of the box in 3 months.

Thanks everyone for your help. I guess it will be 4 hours no peek from now on. Thanks again
