    As I understand it, once the new units start shipping with the new controllers, the price for a
    new version is going to be adjusted up by the same amount as the new controller. About $149.
    That's why ...

    I asked the same thing when I bought mine recently. From my understanding, they aren't
    available in the states with the new controller yet. The grainfather is available from the
    grainfather website wi...

    It turned out perfect, great smoke flavor, still very moist(except for the wings).Corky, I

    Get the spider. You will love it. I still get a cake of hop particles/hot break that builds up

    I use only about 1-2 gallons of water each time I wash/rinse. Makes it easier to lift and dump.

    Easier to screw it off and clean it, probably. Anything you back flushed would end up in the

    ... but my tapwater is so close to distilled that my 5-gallon buckets full never get

    the spring and ball bearing? It won't allow water to be pumped past. That is actually a safety
    device desig...

    When doing my kegerator, I drilled a very tiny hole trying to just get through the stell on the
    exterior. Then used a piece of coat hanger wire with a small L on it as a probe. Pushed through
    the foam...

    Has anyone in or around Dallas (I'm in Plano) measured the temperature of tap/hose water in the
    summer? Trying to decide if it would be worthwhile to get a better immersion
