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!

    I think that it needs a friend to keep it warm.
    If you don't think too good, don't think too much.

    Put it on the grate in the middle and filled up to almost the bottom of the platesetter with apple and cherry chunks and fresh lump. Gonna give it a go for a 20+ hour cook.

    Thinking about taking everything out of the egg and building a fire right on the bottom and letting it go clean burn after tonights butt cook.

    I have to replace the gasket anyway. It is almost completely gone in the back and falling apart everywhere else. I am gonna get one last cook out of it...then I am gonna build a fire on the bottom and expose serial numbers everywhere!!

    PS. I wont crack the bottom will I?

  • I can see it now, the next accessory will be the BGE Davit to lower the lump into the fire box.....
    Impressive.
