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!

    It's a solid effort, but you should try to sharpen the spelling and grammar. No, not to shut up any grammar-nazis, but because it will present your work and you in the best light. There are enough gaffs (like sundown's example of "verdic") that it is a bit of a distraction and definitely detracts from your otherwise significant effort. Polish the grammar and spelling and your ideas will stand out that much more. Just some constructive criticism.

    Watch for the common their/there/they're confusion, and note that in many cases you really meant "as", not "has".

    No, you don't need to take continuing ed classes to catch the flubs, because Your web browser likely has some built in spelling correction options, as does blogspot too. And if you really want to make sure, you can always have someone proof it for you, especially for grammar issues which spellcheck can't catch

    There are a LOT of bbq blogs out there, and this kind of 'picky' stuff may seem, well, picky. But it's what will help you expand beyond just friends and relatives being your regular readers. The audience these days expects a certain level of execution, and you won't find it too hard to hit it I'm sure. Many folks will stop reading when the errors start to pile up. Don't give them a reason to hit the 'back' button.

    Well if French is your first language, then I'll shut up about grammar and spelling in English! You're doing just fine.
    I have a rule: I don't make fun of someone's accent when they speak English because I can't speak their language as well as they speak mine. I'll amend that to not giving someone grief for their spelling and grammar when they write English since I can't write in their language at all .

    Thanks for the wake-up!

    I just love the way people interchange "loose" and "lose"

    Yes I'm being facetious!

    I can tell you about years of use grilling fish, steaks, and anything else I can find. And years of smoking Championship ribs, butts, and briskets on my Eggs. The equipment and the company have been doing it right for many years and they continue to do so.

    I agree with you 100% drbbq. Is there something that can be done at your end to improve the customer service from your BGE distributor in Canada? The dealers customer service is fantastic in Nova Scotia but issue lies with the distributer. I know lots of folks here in Canada that had to go throough the us customer service to get warranty issue resolved due to the fact that the canadian customer service didn't want to do nothing or never get back to them. I know for a fact that the customer service in the US is A+++ I love my BGE and use it alot and would recommend it to anyone but what esitates me is the above. I hope something can be done at your end to improve this! I know your a very good fellow I have friends that have met you and say your wicked! I am not trying to bash BGE I am just trying to let them know that they have issues to resolve here in Canada. On my blog it will be getting a rating of 4 out of 5 due to the customer service issue in Canada! Any thing you want to put on there just PM me the info and will add it to the blog for you!

    Thanks!

    Shawn

    the only problem with the BGE is that "you look like a fool grilling on it" and "your neighbors will laugh at you".  also, you can get a hernia moving it around

     i forget who said that...

    I just read your blog Shawn. As you know a BGE works really well built just like it is. But if you wanted to build a knock-off a smart move would be to make it a little thicker and brag about that. And make the bottom grate a little heavier and brag about that. Etc etc etc. Sort of like gilding the lily. My BGE will run for like 20 hours on a load of lump and wood. Why do I need a deeper firebox? Think about it.
