    On that day, #stayincookout Sattiday, I did, indeed cook on it, but I took preventative measures, fer safey's sake...notice how I'm still here?!


    (Nope, it ain't on accounta Smokey's all up on it.)

    Talk to me, please, cause I very much want yall to live to a Ripe Ol Age, an remain safe, while makin Great BBQ.

    Let me step to the plate first - you should cook on it cause it’s there. And you shouldn’t cook on it cause you should cook on it never not cook on it if that makes any sense. Don’t need the temp measuring device on the outside chance I got it right, but I think I got it right. Stay safe, Bonsey.

    It’s not safe to cook because there’s no fire going.

      Certainly, a most worthy guess, Brother!
      Foodsafe temps are nonexistant, at time of pics, as so poignatly demonstrated by Smokey.
      Sorry, my friend, but not th Winnin Answer...

    Cause the neighbors won’t be able to resist and proper social distancing will be difficult to maintain ? I don’t need the thermometer, just couldn’t resist guessing.

      Good guess, an common scenario, whenever I light off, th neighbours all come a Zombie Walkin over, ain't changed, recently, but they do stay back a bit. Reckon on accounta I'm old, an they's hopin I won't croak, quit bringin em BBQ
      Unfortunately, not th Winnin Answer, but I appreciate ya playin along, many thanks, Brother!

    • I cook on a 15-year-old Kamado #9, a huge beast nearly 6 feet tall and with black ceramic tile on the outside. I of course love smoked meats of all kinds, but also like quick cooks like chicken portions, pork tenderloins and fish. Really into cooking of all kinds. Just added an outdoor fire pit that has grilling capability and limited Santa Maria-style grill raising and lowering.

    #5
    Before firing that rig up, I’d take advantage of those nifty wheels and roll it over onto the concrete I see a couple feet away. If I’m right, please send the controller on to someone in need. I’m fine in that department.

      Normally, that's right where she sets. On that #stayincookout Sattidday, I actually rolled her alla th way round, off into th yard, desparately tryin to mitigate th 25 sust, 50-60+mph winds of th day. It was a right chore fer my old, skinny arse, especial th yard was soaked, an she weighs~450 lbs.
      Normally, I'd never fire her up, on th lawn, but yard was factor of ten more'n enough wet to preclude fire concerns, even with th wind.
      Sorry. no winner, this time...Thanks fer playin, Brother!

    Eithern it ain't yers, and belongs to a rival, or you got a hive of bees/nest of hornets in it. Besides while you COULD cook on it, it's better to cook IN it. Do I see rust holes all in it?

      Never seen it leakin, alla th times I've cooked on her. Stable enough that I would TOTALLY trash th front end of Blue Belle, tryin to knock it offa th cooker chamber by repeatedly runnin headlong into it, with an '84 Sub Bourbon. Or, either I'd end up in th hospital, if I was enougha fool to try knockin it loose, much less off, with a sledgehammer....yeah, that'd be smart, right?
      Jus look at th pics, tell me what's wrong. Tricky? Mebbe, but No Tricks, right in plain sight, Brother.
