We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Another BGE spotting

I stopped by the "Whole Foods" yesterday (a health food store) to pick up some lump ($4.99 of 10# bag) and saw a BGE. It looked like they may do samples on the weekends. May have to stop by this weekend to check it out! BTW, the lump I have been getting there is quite good. lots of big pieces and not much dust![p]Smokey

    Smokey,
    Whole Foods is one of my clients, and I have mentioned the BGE to the person I deal with. Her Dad was lookin at one. Doubt there is any connection, but struck me funny![p]We have Fresh Fields down here, that is part of Whole Foods. The last Whole Foods lump I got was cabinetry, and some had bubbled up finish of some kind on it! but then again, I have been getting some funky BGE lump lately too. Tons of bark, and lots of heavy partially burnt wood that hasn't yet been "lumpized". I'll try another bag or two of the whole foods stuff again, and see if I have better luck.[p]Hope you are enjoying married life. Cheers!

    Nature Boy,[p]Maybe it’s just a funny coincidence, but there it was, a large BGE! I will check it out this weekend! The store “Whole Foods” is a nice store with some good produce and meats. It can be a bit pricey, but good for lump. I also take a closer look at the lump for scrap wood etc.[p]Smokey[p]Oh, marrage it going great too!

    Smokey,
    Pricey is right. Their meats are excellent, but nearly double the grocery store prices. That is the price you pay, I guess, to make sure the animals are free-ranging, antibiotic/hormone free, and fed non-genetically altered corn, and wipe their feet before entering the barn at night. [p]I can't get myself to spend that kind of money though!! But it really is fresh.
    I might if I really knew what was in the grocery store meat I am eating![p]NB
