New Egger in Baton Rouge

Name is Scott and I got a large egg and table for Christmas. Finally got it all put together and I'm as giddy as a fat boy in a lunch line to fire her up. Gonna do some boudin, ribs and a drunk chicken today and plan on doing a big chunk of pig this weekend. i've learned a lot from lurking here the last few days...but I'm sure I'll have questions galore as I go. Here's to a happy new year with lots of good eatin'!

    Welcome! and Happy New Year! 

    I hope that you enjoy your EGG as much as my family does. Never knew what BBQ is until I got mine (SoCal raised, we grill and call it BBQ).

    Welcome to the club, Scott!  Looks like Santa was good to you this year. 

    Can you tell me while Miles throws it on 2nd and 3d downs with three yards to go and less than three minutes left in the game?  Figured, since ya live in red stick, you might have an explanation.  It's driving me nuts. Same deal with the 'Bama game earlier this year.  I'm depressed.

  • Nola........I really don't know why, but I just don't like the way Miles looks.  There is something that is not just right about that guy.  He seems like he is wound WAY too tight.  And I always root for LSU so no flame throwers PLEASE!

    Sometimes I think the grass he eats ain't from the field..... :D

    Still, Die hard LSU fan here - through thick and thin.

  • Thank y'all kindly for the warm welcome. Plano those are the BGE dual probe remote thermos and they seem to work pretty good. I kind of wish she had passed on those as I see a guru in my future.  Nola, I've given up trying to figure that man out and am depressed as well. Burgers and boudin turned out great...can't wait till this weekend to get my lo' and slo' on ;)

  • man, are they running BGE ads in the Coon As* Gazette or something? Seems like every time I turn around a new cajun gets an egg. :)) Seriously though, welcome aboard. Look over your fence, I bet your neighbor has on too!

  • nolaeggheadnolaegghead Posts: 12,248
    I'm glad the Coon Ass nation is getting eggs.  Cajun and Creole food needs to represent.  I thought I was the only one for a long time. That's changing.  I've even seen an egg on the NOLA craigs list (first time in like, a year).  Welcome LA eggers!

    I've smoked a bunch of various salmon and steelhead trout, but no local fish.  I'd like to try curing and smoking some mackerel.  Maybe some mullet too.

    I talked to some locals in Pensacola last month when we were at Ft. Pickens and they seemed to think our mullet would be funky cause of the marsh mud...but I'll pass up specks to get channel mullet...gonna have to sort it out.

  • nolaeggheadnolaegghead Posts: 12,248
    I've head the same, but I still see mullet sold around here, maybe they're imported from Florida.   Worth a shot.

    Nola........I really don't know why, but I just don't like the way Miles looks.  There is something that is not just right about that guy.  He seems like he is wound WAY too tight.  And I always root for LSU so no flame throwers PLEASE!
    Les Miles. Assistant coach under one of the greatest, Bo Schembechler. Michigan Man. I sent him a email begging him to come back home. Asked if he missed the snow. Evidently he hasn't. Hoke isn't too bad for Michigan though. Les is a great fit for LSU
  • Florida Black Mullet is what your after. This summer I can get you all the spanish you want in Caminada Pass...and you're on my way home ;)

    If you ever want to give it a shot, drop off whatever and I'll cure and smoke it, and I'll split it with ya.  I cure and cold smoke or just not cure and hot smoke.  Depends on what it is.  I have a cold smoker where I can cold smoke around 60F even in the hot Louisiana summers.

    Tell him the snow has 5 mil buried in it and take him, I cant stand another year of 3 up the middle and a cloud of dust
