    Yeah man, braised it in red wine and stock for damn near 3 hours, which in theory, would have killed anything, right?

    Copied from elsewhere -

    Many forms of bacteria, such as Clostridium perfringens and Clostridium botulinum, produce heat-resistant spores as they multiply. Cooking meat doesn't destroy these spores, even if you boil the food. Clostridium perfringens causes diarrhea and abdominal pain. Clostridium botulinum -- which can be fatal or take months of recovery -- causes vomiting, diarrhea, blurred or double vision, respiratory muscle paralysis and difficulty swallowing.

    Can't get sick if you never eat the unfinished food

    *Not a Dr*

    I think this is more common with leftovers. The spores need time to germinate and rebuild a colony. If you braised and then ate immediately, I think your risk is very small. If you put leftovers in the fridge for several days and didn't reheat them properly your risk is much higher. You're much more likely to get something from improperly washed veggies or counter top cross contamination.

    Ruling plz.

    Either way I reached out to Porter and just said “Hey, heads up, here’s what happened and I’m in no way faulting you.”

    Within an hour I got an email back from a Robert asking me to call him. So I called, obvs. He asked if it was frozen or thawed and how many Ice packs were in the box. I explained that everything was thawed and there was one ice pack. He basically said, it’s totally possible as with 3 day shipping it should have had at least 4 ice packs and still more or less frozen. He asked my to toss the rest, refunded me and sent a new box after me saying it really wasn’t necessary.

    Again, I’m not saying it was them, it was just an odd coincidence is all. Either way that level of Customer Service will make me a repeat customer for sure.

    You got sick from your food.

    I’m not an expert in enterobes, but as I understand general food poisoning it has equal parts to do with byproducts of bacterial proliferation as it does the presence of microbes

    What are the odds that BadJustin tried to cook and eat the rest?

    Because it’s likely the woo ring you bought wasn’t the cast iron version.

    If I recall they stopped making the cast iron woo. Noticed their description mentioned it at last check.

    You might be able to modify it but.... depends. I can’t recall what it looks like. I don’t know why they didn’t keep old design. My cast iron woo fits cast iron... and the SS grid just fine.

    Feeling like more of a man now.

    Kudos to Kamado’s customer service. Their quality control still blows however.

    Additionally since I was contacting customer service I called in a warranty for a 9 month old BGE cover that has two holes in it already. $100 cover should last longer than that... regardless of this shitty Midwest winter. BGE agreed.

    Kamado and BGE from my warranty/quality complaint to door... 2 days. Damn good on both.

    Still working on my egg pizza game. Made some small sourdough pizzas tonight since it was just my daughter and I. The second stone seemed to work well and helped speed up the pizza cook time. 650ish seems to be the right temp but filled the firebox up a bit too high tonight.
