    • I have 3 outdoor devices (plus a couple indoor items) Starting with the PBC, Faux Kamado Kooker,(Akorn metal Kamado) & Oklahoma Joe offset grill and smoker. I use the FireBoard WiFi Thermometer. IQ110 (heat control device for akorn) recently acquired a Char-Broil Big Easy TRU-INFRARED 3-in-1 Roaster, Smoker and Grill, I also have A Anova & Joule Sous Vide Wands and The Steakager ( a unit for Dry aging big hunks of meat!)

    sorry I can't help you with neutered Roosters (but if/when you find some I would like to know just to see how much of a difference there is between them and hens) off the subject (as I always am) what is considered central Texas? I live in west Texas, But its the bottom part of the pan handle what would El Paso be? I use to live in Dallas/Ft worth which was called North Texas even though Amarillo is way north of there? so really wondering what is Central Tx (if I had to hazard a guess I would bet Austin area?) Good luck with your hunt!

    Stevo, GadjetGriller, Off the Subject of Capons but Not to Far! Did I ever tell you Fellers about the Old Texas Farmer and the Old North Dakota Farmer that met for the First Time at the Big Ag Meeting in Washington DC? Well it Seems these Two Old Farmers were Both a Little on the Windy Side! They Fit in Well in Washinton DC! As such things Go they began Comparing the Size of Their Operations Backhome? Well it Seems the Texan led off with the fact that He would take the Hired Man to the field at Day Light and at Sundown He would Go Pick him Up! ( I Hope You Boys Are Old Enough For This Story!) Well, as He Picked the Man Up The Texan noticed his Man and Equp had only completed One Round on the Field! At that Point the ND Farmer interrupted the Texan, and Commented that He had Once Owned a Tractor Like That Himself!
    Eat Well and Prosper! From a Backyard Cremator in Fargo ND, Dan

      Have you tried your local HEB? I've seen them at the HEB Plus in Victoria.

        I called Central Market in Austin and they said they're getting some in tomorrow. They'll be frozen though, but maybe that's the best I can do. Dunno yet if they are pre-brined.

          Good Deal. The ones I've seen here have been frozen, too. I usually do a turkey breast in my Redi-Smoke to supplement the turkey we do in the oven. Maybe I'll try a capon, instead. Thanks for the idea. Let us know how yours turns out.

        So frozen is ok? If it has been injected with a brine solution, I shouldn't dry-brine, correct?

          Stevo Ask a butcher at Central Market. That's where I get mine.
          They are never on display. Most are special orders so they are kept in the back.

            Our local Kroger affiliate had quite a few capons today. Do you have a Kroger near you?

              nope. I found a 7.75lb fresh hen at my local HEB today so decided to go with that this time around. Still wanna do a capon sometime though.

                If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

                slow n sear

                The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

                The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                the good one grill

                The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

                Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

                The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

                The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                Grilla pellet smoker

                Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

                The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

                kareubequ bbq smoker

                The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

It's hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
