    So, what, Redheads followed Hitler?


    Oh and Rooster, no one is going to get on you for being a new poster. Now, the fact that your post is a schizophrenic rambling, well, that's a different story.

Of course these are probably the same type of folks that followed Hitler a while back. You know, the ones who know everything about everything ( Kinda like redheads). Anyway I appreciate the input by the newbies because they have used something new and gained from it. Thanks newbies. I broke my dad's rule of "If you don't have something nice to say don't say anything." But that doesn't seem to be a problem here. LOL Hope all these are in fun.

        Russ baby, is that you?

        I haven't checked this, one of my all time favorite threads, in quite some time.

        Sorry, I don't do alts.
        I do have to thank you though for that Joe Cocker video; I laughed out loud.

              Wow, that's a great price. Were they the "big" ones or the smaller "turkey" cookers?

                  Today's woot at $99.99. If you don't know about woot, you should look into it.

                    After sitting here reading this entire thread I became so curious that I ordered one from woot. I paid 104.99 with shipping. Cant wait to try it.I will come back after I use it and let you all know how I made out. In the meantime could people who already own one please post tips and or recipes for this unit.

                    Thanks

                        Hello all, I am new here, I bought one yesterday and found this site when I googled recipes... I have been smoking for over 20 years, I have a Klose smoker, had a 8'X30" Klose mobile, but I just sold it, I used it for competitions and catering. I now have a Klose backyard. I also have a Traeger, Kamado, WSM, BDS and a cobb smoker, I guess you can see I love to Q all the different smokers do certain foods a different way, I bought the Orion for ribs fast and easy, will bring it to work and cook for some of the people here. found some good input here and hope I will be able to add. Hopefully will get the new "baby" in about a week. Ilove trying new ways to cook. You can never make to much food, just use the vacuum sealer and freeze the rest.

                              Well here I am, another new guy. I found this place through google while looking for more recipes for my Orion Cooker. I have had mine for several years now and use it frequently. Those of you that are poo pooing it should do a little research. First of all the easy light charcoal is just a heat source and the smoke from the charcoal never gets inside the cooker. As I am typing this I have 60 chicken wings in my cooker and the will be done to perfection in 1 hour. no breading or anything. just place the wings on the racks add apple coder vinegar to the pan inside the cylinder and hickory chips around the outside of the pan. In 1 hour you have the best tasting hickory flavored wings you ever tasted. you can add sauce after cooking but I eat mine just as they are.

                              these cookers are great,
                              Last week I cooked 3 ten pound boston butts at one time for a party at my house. a little over 4 hours

                                              I had already taken one rack of wings out and part of the second and then thought I should get a picture of them in the cooker.

                                              as you can see they come out a golden brown, if you want them crispy, just cook them an extra 10 minutes....

                                                    Local Home Depot also has them for $99.00. Before I pull the trigger I would sure like to see some more pictures from you or anyone else.

                                                    TIA

                                                      Come on Orion owners. There's a couple of us skeptics waiting to see those pictures and be convinced that these things are not just outdoor ovens/steamers. Show us those ribs, chicken, briskets, etc, and push us off the fence.

                                                            Thnaks Tim,

                                                            I went back and looked at the old posts, and pictures. Everything looks good but like CajinKing I think the pork is cooking to fast and not fully rendering the fat. I do like "bark" on my butts & ribs so I guess I'll keep on gettin it done low and slow.
