    I love the website and the super videos. I have used them with excellent results several times. My question has to do with the BDI Injector Malcome uses. After watching it being used, I decided to get one and I did. I attempted to use it to do a smoked turkey following the video. Here are the problems I ran into.
    ** The small needle would not inject even plain water. Still cannot figure what is wrong with that.
    ** It is a bear to clean, especially after using the butter based marinade used in the video.
    ** The O rings,….. “OH”, the O rings. After “cleaning” the barrel, no matter how I try, including greasing first, I cannot get the barrel O ring to stay in place. In fact when it arrived the O ring was not entirely in place.
    Any suggestions? Where can I get new, and hopefully improved O rings? Thanks.

    Just watch your spatchcock turkey on a pellet smoker. How long and what temp would you run a spatchcock turkey on a off set smoker? Just an FYI I’ve been a long time follower and love your videos.

    I’m putting a 8lb. flat from Costco on the smoker in the morning using your TX brisket rub. My question, is that all the rub that I need to use. Gonna try a little Bad Byrons for a little kick but not sure that will be too much. Love your web site. New fan.

    Love your stuff! When listening to your podcast I fell in love with the idea of smoked chex mix. I couldn’t find your recipe can you help a friend out? I’m thinking of substituting some bacon grease for butter. Thanks for all you do.

    Thanks for all the informative videos, I enjoy them very much. What are your thoughts on whole jowl bacon? I have made your pork belly burnt ends .. delicious, and I tried that with jowl bacon . Came out ok, but fat didn’t render as well as the belly. Cooked until 200* What are your thoughts ? .. peace and health to you and your family
