Being new to this EGG "thing" ..I was curious as to.."How often do the participants in this Forum actually fire up their EGGS? Is it a weekend experience or a daily experience or what? Hoping ya'll will respond to this informal questionnaire..(hoping to hear from Cat in N.Y.C.) AND..one more thing..what is it that you most commonly cook?

    RLA,[p]I fire Humpty about 3 days a week and grilling is the majority of my cooking. Chicken breasts - steaks - salmon or tuna - and the best ribs you'll ever have.[p]Link below has loads more stuff[p]Tim

    RLA,
    Bob I use one of the Eggs at least once a week and sometime 4,5 or 6 times. Tonight it is gona be Egg Pizza!!! I've finally got all the parafinalia and I'm tired of Spin, Tim, NB, Gfw, Sprinter and now MAC enjoying all those pizzas! Right, wrong or indifferent, it is pizzas tonight! One supreme (with everything) and one with Canadian bacon & pepperoni (our son likes it that way!) I can just taste the the thing now! See ya got me all excited I'm stammering! This will be the 4th time this week we've used the Egg. My wife loves it too, 'cause she doesn't have to cook![p]I cook any thing and everything on the Egg. From burgers to long-slow briskets or butts! KOC & Guru of Grease have the right idea...."If it ain't specifically forbidden in the recipe in regards to the Egg, it gets cooked on the Egg at least once!" I think they have the right idea![p]Dr. Chicken[p]p.s.: Vote fer NB fer President! or Surgeon General one!

    <p />RLA, last week was a slow week for the egg - only three times. Usage really varies as does what the egg is used for. If you haven't already browsed my pictures, check out the link - it will give you a pretty good idea of what I do on the egg.

    <p />Dr. Chicken, let us know how the pizza turns out - I have a new variation called Sweet Potato Pizza if you are interested - just kidding. Good luck![p]

    Gfw,
    I'll try that one if you'll try my "braised snails & mushrooms" fer your next one! Fair trade???[p]Smile :^)[p]Dr. Chicken[p]p.s.: thats a mighty nice lookin' pizza! You & MAC both do that so well! Spin must have been a good teacher!

  • GfwGfw Posts: 1,598
    Dr. Chicken, I would get email from Spin after about each pizza picture post - that's why the pictures, and the pizza, kept getting better - next time I'll pu the toppings on the cheese rather than under it. I'm still learning. Have a great day!

    RLA,[p]My Egging ranges from 1 to 3 or 4 times a week. For me cooking on the egg is not only about the food, I reallyu enjoy cooking on it too![p]Today, its a cajun corned beef. No plans for tomorrow, but Mondays mustard chicken!

    Gordon,
    It still looks good! I might look even nicer with those other toppings! :^)[p]Dr. Chicken

    RLA,
    On the average 5 times a week humpty gets a workout. Some of those are solo lunches. Two 20 lb. bags of lump are history in a light month. Like when I listen to music, I like variety and try hard to cook a different thing every time. Probably the most common things I cook are chicken pieces, then ribs, then pork chops (or country ribs), then steaks. Nice to be able to cook pizza, bread, squid, fish, clams, oysters, burgers, chili, and, well everything. Sorry I got carried away.[p]NB

    NB - the local BGE dealer ran an article in the local paper about spring, etc. One of the featrues was the BGE. The article stated that the manufacturer say a bag of charcoal woll last for several months - I think at your house, like mine, it might be for severl (or 2) weeks. [p]

    Gfw,
    Yep. Amazing what those "normal" people do. Somehow, some folks are able to escape the gripping addiction that soon takes over after eating great egged food, and accepting the challenge to make it even better next time. I truly thought my addiction would have subsided since July, but it just gets stronger. Egg on!

    Nature Boy,
    That was a good example using "listening to music" when Egging. I like to use variety also. Most of the time I listen to Bruce in the 70's or 90's....but this evening Cornfed and I just might try some bruce in the 80's :)

    Nature Boy,
    I wish I could make a bag last "several" weeks, like you guys do! I'm lucky when I get to cookin' if a bag will last a week! I've been buying 10 bags at a whack! Am I doing somethin' wrong or just have need fer more Eggsperience than you two??? :^)[p]Dr. Chicken

    RLA, Put me down for 2 or 3 cooks a week. Since I usually cook below 400 degrees, I think my 20 lb bag of BGE lump goes a bit further than most: new bag every 3 weeks to a month. [p]

    RLA,[p]I have averaged 3-4 times a week over the past 2 1/2 years (year round cooking). I do the long cooks on the weekends. I use it this much only because I make better food on it than in the kitchen.[p]I don't actually have one cook that I make most commonly. That is the beauty of the Egg. It is so versatile that I become the limit and then tend to experiment with methods and flavors.[p]You are in for some fun![p]Spin[p]

    Smokin' Todd,
    I can bet you won't be listening to the Ghost of Tom Joad. I made that CD into a beer coaster. What a horrible release from your hero. What was he thinking??[p]Love much of his other stuff. Hope yooz guys is enjoying the weekend.[p]NB

    RLA,[p]I've been pretty much a weekender to date. Hopefully that will change - I just began a sabbatical from work, & want to get a small Egg so I can do quick dinners for just the two of us.[p]I do more low-and-slow and smoke-roasting than high-temp grilling; I plan to do more of the latter when I have a small. Favorites include baby backs, pulled pork & brisket. When time is more limited I like to do chicken, a small beef roast or salmon.[p]Oh, and pizza, of course![p]Cathy

    Dr. Chicken,
    You, my friend, are a cooking madman! Hard to keep up with that kind of consumption. Egg on!
