Wow! 3150.00 final bid.

I'm actually kind of surprised that it didn't go for more.

one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten.... whew, now that I have calmed down, how could you use pellet grill and love in the same sentence...LOL

I know, right?  I left out that the proceeds to this sale will likely go to purchasing a portable pellet grill.  Now I have all but killed any possible deal I am sure.
I still love you @LightningBoldtz

Thanks Joe, I think I am going to need all the support that I can get.

Heh, you've apparently flipped your lid and gone off and gotten crazy....

But that is a HELL of a deal on a Mini RK.  Especially with the custom made SnS.  Someone is going to be happy with it!

If it's fairly priced, I'd go for it.

@Bertl  The inside won't necessarily look like the outside. I have several grills where the outside looks like a 15yr old with a bad case of zits, but the inside looks as sweet as a supermodel's butt.
I have a Honda Ridgeline and love it. It has a lockable bed storage area inside and beneath the bed. It is dry storage and is great for transporting charcoal when it's raining.  You can use a plastic Rubbermaid storage bin to store and transport your tongs, spatulas and assorted cooking equipment.  If you want to transport it in the lockable storage, just make sure you buy one that fits inside.  My favorite feature is the Ridgeline tailgate.  Being able to open it like a car door makes it so much easier to load items both into the bed and lockable storage area without having to lift or lean over the tailgate.

I transport my kettles bowl down, with the legs and wheels facing upwards.  I place the charcoal grate on the bed, then the cooking grate, then place the kettle upside down with the bowl over the two grates.  The lids I stack on top of one another, using a moving blanket folded between each one to prevent damage.  I keep the kettles close to the rear of the truck cab with the front leg facing the rear tailgate.  I learned early on to strap the kettles down with the wheels aligned to cut through the wind. I run a tie down strap from a lower tie down on the truck, up over the triangle and then back down to the opposite side tie down.  The wheels can catch the wind and tip the kettles over if transported near the tailgate.  Dog dish ash pans should be removed and transported in the lockable storage.  They can blow out of the bed.  Ash bucket type catchers do not have that problem and can be left on the kettles.

When transporting more than two kettles, I place a moving blanket down on the bed to keep the kettles from moving.  They have a tendency to shift and slide on the hard plastic bed liner of the Ridgeline.

I have also transported several Ranch kettles in my Ridgeline.  They are easy to load and transport and can be done by one person if needed. The ashpan should be removed and placed in the lockable storage.  I leave the lid on and use two tie downs.  One to secure the lid to the bowl and one to secure the bowl to the truck bed.

jcnaz posted some good questions.  I would not recommend ever transporting a kettle with hot ashes or coals.  I can't tell you how many times I have watched trucks and SUV's  burning in the Oakland Coliseum parking lot after sporting event tailgate parties.  Also, several times I have responded to truck fires on the freeway that the bed contents ignited from ashes blowing out of a kettle being transported with hot coals and ashes.  It is a recipe for disaster.
That sounds like a fun gig!

I typically transport kettles in the bed of my truck with the bowl rim resting on a rubber mat, wheels up. The grates go under the lid and also sit on the mat. This keeps them from tipping over and doesn't put any stress on leg sockets, but it can be messy.
 I have also transported kettles upright, with the lid secured with a bungee cord to keep it from blowing off.

 I have a few questions before I would offer any suggestions:

How many kettles would you be transporting at one time?
How much wear and tear on your kettles will be acceptable?
How much time will you have to assemble and prepare the kettles before you use them?
How much time will you have to clean and disassemble before loading them again?
Will you have to transport any hot ashes or coals?
How heavy and awkward of an object can you and your wife safely lift together?

Charcoal Grilling & BBQ / Re: Well done steak.
« Last post by foshizzle on Today at 07:05:33 AM »
Went camping last weekend and food was planned by others. One of the meals was Flanken Ribs with a Korean marinade that was really good (I was camping and everything taste a little better when camping).  The Flanken Ribs were a little tough but they also bought a cheap thinly cut steak, which they did not know what it was) and put that in the marinade for two days and that was tender and really good for well done cook.

Yoshida 1cup
Soy sauce 1/2 cup
Seseme Oil tablespoon
Chopped garlic tablespoon
Green onion
Marinate at least 24 hours.

Always like your posts in your search for the perfect pizza. Thatís for sharing.

@foshizzle Thank you , my search has been actually to design a user friendly device that woks on any grill (gas, charcoal or wood) and can produce evenly baked pizza (top and bottom) at any temperature.  After many prototypes and 100s of pizza (which we enjoyed every one them), I think, I am done. Every part of my design is multi-functional and up-gradable, I will post more about it each part as time permit.
