It’s almost Halloween and if you’re cooking on your EGG, you may end up with more people knocking on your door asking for pork chops than candy! In case you’re willing to share and want to please a crowd, we recommend warm Margherita Pizza, FGL’s Lemon Pepper Wings or our favorite, S’mores in a Cone!

If you missed the 17th Annual EGGtoberfest here are the highlights Click Here Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Why Soak Wood Chips?

I'm curious as to why folks are compelled to soak wood chips/chunks before they get tossed on the coals?  Wood, by its very nature, doesn't take on much water (that's why they build boats out of the stuff) and most of the moisture will just steam off anyway.  Simple physics (and experience) tells me that if I want great smoke (not steam) from burning wood, the wood should be dense and dry.
