I've never heard of this Vortex before, very interesting. It's like a budget friendly version of a slow-n-sear? I'm debating getting one of those Primo kamados when we get a new house (hopefully) towards the beginning or middle of next year. Might have to re-think that after seeing these. I wanted to go all out on a slow-n-sear grill but can't find anyone who will ship it to Hawaii. They sell Primos on Wayfair and supposedly they'll ship it here for free, but I'm not holding my breath.

Good on you! You've made it a long time, stay disciplined!

Looks similar to the slow'n'sear? Little different operation, I think, as this goes under the grate.

Altogether, with charcoal, chimney, grill and vortex, I have less than $150 stuck in this project so I'm happy.

Reverse searing has seriously changed my life for the better.

I agree, I never like to put sauce on good steak, and especially don't like to cook it past medium at the most. If you want beef jerky, don't come to our family dinners!

Rare, or medium rare if it's a fattier cut. 

Sous-vide followed by a hard sear, for me. Either cast iron or propane torch.

So............. really bored. I'm a huge fan of cast iron pans. I have a 13", a 12", a 10" square, a 13" griddle and a #3 tiny, one egg pan/s. My daughters gave me a Lodge Dutch Oven for Father's Day last year. I think it's 10 qts.

I have always wanted to try Carbon steel pans. So I ordered  12.5", 10" and 8" Debuyer Mineral B pro Element pans from Amazon. I can't wait to get them and start playing ...lol.

Everything I've learned about them is that they are the same as cast iron, just lighter. You season them and take care of them exactly the same way.

I have a very good set of stainless pots and pans. I'm not a huge fan of them. I'd much rather use my cast iron... and hopefully my carbon steel when I get it.

I really do like the stainless I use it a lot but let me know how the cast works for you. I did hear that cast is like carbon with carbon being lighter.

Cheaper and a bit different as @edingc said. You can use it multiple ways. Like he did and I do, with it in the middle full of coals and the meat around the outside. Or, you can turn it upside down and have the coals around the outside and put a whole chicken in the middle. Here's their website: https://vortexbbq.com/

I might be "borrowing" your homemade bun idea this weekend. 

We're likely making "Blue Pigs" Tomorrow night. 

75/25 special ground chuck (just means that the majority of the 25% is pork fat)
Thick Cut lightly candied bacon (coconut sugar)
Blue Cheese (hefty portion)
Lettuce, Maui Sweet Onion, Tomato
Homemade BBQ Sauce
Avacado Mayo (Try it!) 

Sweet potato parmesan Fries on the side with homemade fry sauce.  

Colorful, Sweet, Thick, Beefy & Funky..   It's like a 70's disco party for your mouth!

They are really buttery more so than brioche buns. I messed up and accidentally deflated the proof of the buns so I had to reproof them which I think made them tougher than desired but still delicious. They were easy to make and turned out great they just take half a day to make.

Broke out the Old Smokey and vortex again this afternoon, this time with some hickory chunks for smoke.

Smoked pork tenderloin with a garden tomatillo salsa verde over cauliflower rice. And some smoked chicken breasts for a Caesar salad later. 

Pork tenderloin was just a green chile rub, chicken was EQ brined at two percent salinity for about 26 hours.

Everything turned out great, though next time I'd cut the brine time down a bit. Not too salty, but the texture got to be a little too firm.

Thanks! The pork turned out way better than I expected. Even the wife really liked it. The acidity of the tomatillo salsa really worked well with the savory smoke flavor of the tenderloin.

Still have a pork shoulder in the freezer that I'm going to sous vide and then smoke to finish. And now I definitely want to do some chicken drumsticks.

Charcoal is a bit of an operation to get going, but flavor is so much better than gas. And I love that when I clean the grill today I can salvage some charcoal chunks for reuse and the rest of the wood ash can go straight into my garden compost.
