Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Anyone familiar with these? I got a pack of them, and the website says the will not impart odor, but I noticed that they contain kerosene. OK to use in the Egg?

Thanks, John

    I have tried quite a few "starter" products. I have settled on a MAPP torch. The torch works best on lump that claims a low spark rate when lighting. I use Royal Oak. Starter products seemed( to me ) to have a very acrid smoke when first lit, so I quit using them.
    Yes, this is the biggest one they make.
