Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Ozark Oak Users-does it impart much flavor or is it pretty benign?

Just picked up a load of Ozark Oak from the boutique lump supplier (my Father's Day gift to me).  Have lots of run-time with generic Royal Oak so have a handle on the flavor it imparts-does Ozark Oak behave about the same or give a more smokey flavor?  Appreciate any insights-and yes I read TNW's review.

    From my experience it has a little bit stronger flavor, but not much. It's seems to me to be a different flavor as opposed to more or less smokey. I really like Ozark Oak, I was very sad the last time I went to get some and my supplier was sold out. Let us know what you think of it please.

    Thanks Brownie and I will be sure to pass on my assessment.  First go is Father's Day (a theme here?) with a slow roasted prime (okay actually choice...) rib- with some Jack Daniels chips along for the ride.

    I got a couple of bags several years ago. It did have a definite oak flavour, which is perfect for beef. Too expensive here to get regularly.

    I love Ozark Oak.  Mine is about $8 per 10 lb. bag here in Dallas.
