As most of ya know, I don't post much, but have been around since day 2 if not 1 (with JJ, da'Bear, et al). Having work done on the deck, actually a screened porch for the wife, I get a 4 foot overhang for my toys. Anyway, been out of commision for outdoor cooking for 2.5 weeks and going crazy. Tonight managed to get to my mini and did a couple of nice fillets.
People, this is like having a (better than) resturant quality inviroment to do steaks. It saved my sanity till this project is completed.
If you have room & desire, I highly recommend the mini just for situations you don't think about.
As allways, appreciate ya'll more than you know. I'm here, even if silent. hehehe

    TJinBham,
    Good to hear from you again. Now you know why I got a mini. When you get a chance head up to Guntersville, maybe we an get Brant from Huntsville and a few other Bama folks for a cook out at my place. With 4 EGGS we have plenty to cook with.

    TJinBham,
    You got that right. Some have all of 1 year experience cooking on the EGG. Damn they consider our 20+ yrs cooking on the EGG as we know nothing. They even consider our over 50 yrs Q'n as not near as good as their 2 yrs Q'n experience. Some do not even own an EGG but give all kinds of advice and condemnation.

    JJ,[p]Relax. Don't get your panties all up in a bunch. Everyone respects your 50+ years of Qin. Ya gotta just roll with the punches a little and have some fun. As was posted earlier, all ye old sages just need to sit back and watch some of the newbies post every now and then and fumble around with what you know is trivial. Take solace in your superiority and enjoy![p]Cornfed

    JJ,
    I never got any dummer that betwen my 16th and 21st birthday. Hell, I thought I thew it all! Sometimes the love is in the learning. (thanks Dad).
    Don't take it personal. (but I do know what ha mean.hehehe)[p]

  • JJJJ Posts: 951
    Cornfed,
    We old sages have no problem setting and watch you newbies post. In fact, we really enjoy it and encourage you to do the posts. We just do not appreciate the comments that we have no idea what we are talking about. Additionally, there have been some extremely rude comments to brand new EGG owners for their comments from some of you newbies. Us old sages welcomed you with open arms now the newbies are beig blasted by ya'll.

  • CornfedCornfed Posts: 1,324
    JJ,[p]I hope you're generalizing since we both know that I've never hinted that any of the "sages" have no idea what they're talking about. Also, we both know I've never "blasted" any new people; I'm still new to the forum myself! That being said, let's try and be adults here and talk about Qin. No illegal death threatening emails are necessary to settle arguments among adults. It's hard to Q from behind bars![p]Cornfed
  • JJJJ Posts: 951
    Cornfed,
    You have just made some comments that you can not back up.

  • CornfedCornfed Posts: 1,324
    JJ,[p]Sorry for offending you. Let's be adults and leave it at that. Every reader of the forum will be better off. No threatening emails are necessary, let's just get back to Qin! I've learned so much from your efforts and look forward to learning much more! I'm sure you agree that local authorities need not be involved in discussions about cooking on the Big Green Egg![p]Respectfully yours,
    Dave (aka - Cornfed)

    Cornfed,
    But the mini would work GREAT behind bars. They just shine in a small environment. Poy-fect![p]On a lighter note...used my newly-obtained hickory char crust on the sirloin tip roast last night. Was VERY tasty. It was about a 1.5 lb roast and that damn thing got to 140 internal in about 45 minutes. I was expecting almost twice that. The microwave saved me with the sweet potatoes. But the popovers were dessert! Is that exceptionally fast or were my (GASP) sources incorrect on the original time estimate you think?

    MollyShark,[p]What dome temp were you cooking at and was it direct or indirect? [p]If you were direct and at grilling temps - I believe it. Its just like searing a large steak.[p]Tell more.[p]Tim
  • MollyShark carries on conversation with self:
    You dork! What? You're a dork! Why say you that? Because you wrote down the times for a 2.5 lb roast and you actually cooked a 1.5 lb roast. THAT's why it didn't take as long. Makes sense! Sheesh. Next time drink the wine WITH dinner...not before. sniff.

    MollyShark,
    I want to hear more about the popovers. Did you do them on the egg? JCA

    TJinBham,
    Hey, Terry, I just wanted to say how nice it is to "see" you. Bone appétit! Julie

    JJ, I was racking my tiny brain for a second there. I was trying to put together some type of inside joke about "fun", or something. I didn't realize the real typo until you pointed it out.
