    Smokers (BBQ - not grilling)

    Around here, if someone invites you to a barbecue, most likely you’ll get hot dogs and hamburgers. Maybe some chicken if you’re lucky. Real BBQ hasn’t been popular up north for very long.

    Smokers (BBQ - not grilling)

    So, I’ve been going down a “Smoker” rabbit hole on you tube this winter. I’ve found a bunch of guys and gals building cement block “open” pits in the old school tradition. These are really cool, but a real lot of work to tend. You end up needing two pits. One is to burn the wood down to...

    Smokers (BBQ - not grilling)

    Cooking steak is grilling. No matter what technique you use. Certainly not BBQ, at least in my worthless opinion. I still grill quite a lot of things. For instance, I can’t imagine BBQ fish, or shrimp… Or steak.

    Smokers (BBQ - not grilling)

    I’ve been taking to reverse smoke/searing my steaks with a low temp smoke first, then pull it off early while I bring the grille up to max temp for a quick sear. That’s one reason I picked a Pit Boss pellet grille over some of the other brands as there is a sliding plate over the burner that...

    Don’t worry, Mike. Our wives don’t read the FJRforum.

    And now you have the pellet burner so you can ignore it for 4-5 hours at a time!

    Smokers (BBQ - not grilling)

    Beef Ribs. It’s what for dinner… Yep, only $10 from Wally World’s Meat Emporeum. Exotic Texas spice rub (salt n’ peppa). Those are some good sized dino bones. Finished goods. Quite tasty, especially for the season. Went out and snow blowed my driveway and the two neighbors while they...

    North American Wild Card Moto-Tag Game

    I think the weather in the northern half of the country might be partially responsible. My driveway looks about like this.

    Smokers (BBQ - not grilling)

    It was in the single digits here this morning. Good thing because the roads that were all nicely frozen a couple weeks ago all melted and we had a false “mud-season”, and then we got the snow on top of that. Makes for tough plowing.

    Smokers (BBQ - not grilling)

    Got about 6” of the white last night. Cleared my own driveway and two of the neighbors while disconnected from my infusion pump. Ground too soft to use the snowblower much. But it should be frozen solid soon. Had to use the rear blade instead. On topic, I have a small pork loin roast to...

    I’m still around too!

    Hey Greg! Long time no see… Yeah, both Fred and his wife Katie have left Harpoon. The company is having problems and they both moved on to other, greener pastures. Katie now works for the FDA in their milk program. She was an agricultural biologist in school, so this really was up her...

    White screw- throttle body synchronization

    Hello Pjotr, Yes, I think you have it right. Once any of the channels becomes lower than the rest, just ignore the paint dots and make that channel the reference, left fully closed, and adjust the rest to that level. The key is to balance the 4 channels. The absolute value of the channels...

    I’m still around too!

    Looks like the new software wants me to confirm my existence. Yes, I am still here. Perhaps to the consternation of some. Still have my 2014 FJR ES. Still the best bike that I’ve ever owned. Yet. I did finally participate in the sale of my beloved ‘05 Bass Bote Blue Beauty, that was...

    Smokers (BBQ - not grilling)

    Early Christmas wishes to all of my BBQing friends here. Things have been very hectic of late here in VT. Had some significant problems with my 2nd hip replacement, but I’m on the homeward slide now and feeling much better. I wish you all a pleasant, and enjoyable Christmas season. There are...

    3rd Gen Idle speed problems

    I took the time to dig through the 2014 FSM today.  Information about idle speed control (either cold or normal) is very scarce. There is a brief mention in the fuel injection theory about it being simplified (no bypass or valve) but nothing more.  There is also a diagnostic that will allow you...

    3rd Gen Idle speed problems

    Yeah, my friend Big Ogre got bitten by a bad TPS, but his symptoms were more typical TPS symptoms of stumbling at throttle roll-on or off.  I know that is always a possibility on any fuel injected bike.     Hanging idle definitely isn’t cables.  When it happens I’ve tried forcefully closing...
