  1. I personally have not, but several others have for this grill and issue. I believe they were originally sending out updated controllers. I have the newest version of the controller. The built in thermometer stays within plus or minus 10 degrees of the set temp so Recteq says it is correct because it takes an average of temps in different areas. The supplied meat probe and independent probes will show the large swings and high temps. People started testing temps when they noticed their cooks getting done a lot faster than their experience on other smokers, or ruined. Almost thr
  2. I'd be very happy if I could keep it within plus or minus 20-25 degrees of the set temp. Best I can do is plus or minus 50-55 degrees of the set temp (100-110) swings after adjusting settings. Usually on the high side. Smoking isn't an exact science so I don't really care about exact temps, just thought it would be better at keeping a reasonable range. Still going to try different pellets before I give up. Will be great if primarily used as a grill and an occasional smoker. I was hoping to do the opposite. I live in northeast Nebraska so that might be a little long of a road tri
  3. @heckmanm Not sure what to tell you about this Recteq Bullseye. Completely depends on your intended use. Great for grilling (it will get very hot for searing), but not-so-great if you're wanting to do low and slow smoking due to the temp swings. I can keep the temps a lot more stable on a Weber kettle with minimal effort. I have more to say about it, but want to try a different pellet brand first. If you are somewhat close (I don't know where you live) I would sell you the Bullseye and official Recteq cover (very nice) for less than half of what I paid. From everything I've read,
  4. Haven't yet, but probably getting one in the next week or 2. It's a better grill than a low and slow smoker. A lot of talk online of it running a lot hotter than the internal temp probe shows. My experience matches that. There is an offset setting that is easy to change to get the indicated and actual temps closer. By design the lid leaves a gap, so even a light gust of wind can swing the temp. Everything I've cooked on it so far has been great so I can't complain. Just can't give it a glowing review because of the temp swings.
  5. Just checking to see if you ended up buying the RecTeq B380? I bought it and have used it a few times.
  6. Pretty great call by Nance at the end. "Gonzaga has time to do something! Suggs for the win!.. OOOOH!" I was having streaming issues towards the end of regulation and almost said F it. I would have been pissed reading this thread after the fact.
  7. I, for one, had no idea goats liked Sprite. That information could come in useful someday.
  8. Thought I read that way early in the reports. But I have been wrong before.
  9. I believe they mentioned that early due to lack of skid marks. And probably confirmed by the black box.
  10. I would have yelled. Those trees are probably dead. Check out the damage the next time you are in the area.
  11. The anti-vaxxers at my company are the upper management. Then our largest client came out with new guidelines for being on their property including "strongly suggesting" getting the vaccination. Now some in upper management are saying they will get it if "forced" by that client or needing it for international travel. We have one other employee that isn't anti as much as a worrier and wants to wait to see how it affects others.
  12. I had to stop at Walmart on the way home. A lady from the pharmacy approached me on the other end of the store and asked if I wanted a shot because they had 3 left they needed to use. Told her I just got my first yesterday. Called my sister who is trying to get one, but she lives 30 minutes away and was getting her hair cut. I wasn't in the store long, but the pharmacy lady was still trying to find someone when I left. I saw her ask one guy who bluntly replied "No and No."
  13. Shoulder started getting a little sore last night and is a little worse this morning. Just around the injection site. Not even close to the point I would think about taking pain meds for though. Feels like a bruise.
  14. This is where I am. I've heard talk of concerts that will require proof of vaccination or a negative test within 48 hours. Maybe we will see more of that. I asked an anti covid vax coworker what he would do if sporting events started requiring vaccinations. His answer was, "I just won't go." Fine with me I guess. This same guy HATES wearing a mask. I'm having a hard time reconciling the number of people I know who hate wearing masks but have also said they won't get the vaccination. Is my logic wrong that the more people we get vaccinated the sooner those that hate wearing masks ca
  15. Moderna #1 done. Quick process at the local clinic. Took temp, answered a short allergies questionnaire, got the shot, waited 15 minutes then out the door. Confirmed they got my info from the state registration. My age group wasn't originally scheduled until April 1. Maybe they are running a little ahead or not finding enough takers.
  16. Local clinic called me randomly to ask if I wanted the shot. Not sure if it was because I registered on the state's website. Shot scheduled for 11 AM tomorrow. Governor came out yesterday and said there could be legal repercussions for organizations giving shots "out of order".
  17. What would we do if we couldn't compare people to Hitler? We couldn't add "gate" to the end of controversies. Chaos.
  18. You can beat this. We need A LOT more fishing pictures for MANY more years.
  19. I share a bday with an older sister and a BIL. I don't make a big deal about if, but my family does. For my 50th I specifically asked for it to be low key. And it was.
  20. Haha. It was killing me watching that guy. I thought it might have been my inner :style: god getting the best of me but clean up a bit Harman. He's leaving a ton of money on the table from sponsors dressing like he's part of the grounds crew. I think it's an ego thing. So he can buy pants with a 28" inseam instead of 24".
  21. Question about thawing, then freezing, then thawing, then freezing pork ribs. I bought a couple of slabs of vacuum sealed partially frozen pork ribs last weekend thinking I would have a chance to smoke them. It didn't work out so I put them in the freezer. Moved them to the fridge a few days ago thinking I would have a chance to smoke them this weekend. Didn't have a chance to smoke them. Now I might not have a chance to smoke them for a couple of weeks. OK to put them back in the freezer until I do get a chance?
  22. Wow. In the air that looked like it was hooking into the water.
