Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
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!

$10 lb royal oak and tar.

So.. I just found a few pieces of ro from the 10lb bags... That had tar on them. I noticed it when I fired up the grill and I smelled a burnt rubber smell.... Opened it up and found the piece bubbling with tar. I've contacted Ro and I'm waiting for a reply.

  • I've been lucky. The only non-lump items in my RO has been slag glass and a few stones.

    3 bags into the 12 I bought at RD before memorial day, I've had a couple quarter sized rocks...but no other foreign material.

    Where is the country of origin MountainDew?

    I've seen that before and assumed it was perhaps sap.  If you do hear back from RO, it would be interesting to know what they say.

    I just found a fist sized piece of Asphalt in a bag this weekend.  I've always had little stones but never anything this size.  I'm glad I plucked it out before I started a fire.  I'm anxious to here if they get back to you.

    I think you guys are missing the big picture....what flavor did this add to what ever you were cooking? This could be the next 'big thing'. (kidding). I have (6) 17.6 lb bags in the garage and i am very curious on RO's answer on this. Where in fla mountain dew?

    I just went out and snapped this pic of the chunk.  That's the Large Daisy Wheel for scale.

    I find lots of insulation pieces, like the fiberglass kind and a fair amount of under charcoaled pieces that smoke forever if you do not find them when dumping into the egg.

  • I bought 3 of the larger bags when Walmart had the Memorial day Sale (back to smaller bags there now, hopefully they will repeat the large bag special for July 4th)

    Anyway, only difference I noticed from smaller RO bag was seems to be a lot bigger pieces--more like you get in BGE official bag.  Occasionally do find a piece of gravel in RO--not really anything else unusual.

    I bought some Russian lump once and found a chunk of uranium-235 from Chernobyl and a bald 3-eyed vole.

    At least you didn't get any plutonium 238....
