Amazing!!! Comments I received after following these steps are “this is by far the best steak I’ve ever had” and I agree! Very tasty and the cook was perfect for us! Thank you!!!
I've just used this recipe to christen my classic 3. OMG. Best chicken ever. I followed your instructions to the letter and it turned out absolutely perfect! As a Kamado newbee it has made all the difference!

I followed your directions exactly and have to say, these were the juiciest, most tender ribs I have ever made! Love your videos.
Hi James, I did this cook today and it was my first brisket to turn out fantastic. I had tried another method, but this one was much easier and almost fool-proof.
Thanks James for making this so easy to follow. Today was my first low and slow, first double indirect, and first pulled pork. It was amazing and the timing and taste were perfect - thanks to this video and your explanations!
