Two things we’ll be making this month are Chile Rubbed Grilled Pork Chops and Bell Pepper Kabobs. Then, relax after a cookout with a cool dessert cooked on your EGG - Ice Cream Sandwiches! You can mix and match your favorite cookie flavors with ice cream flavors. Simple, yet delicious!

The Weber....

A few weeks ago, all I had was a weber kettle. I had perfected cooked direct and indirect with charcoal over a few years. Then I got the LBGE for Father's Day. I hate turning back. When limited today, I had to fire up the weber for side dishes. How do I convince the wife we need a second egg? I'll try to ost some pics separately of the Korean style beef ribs, stuffed summer squash, and cheese filled peppers. mmmmm.

    There is nothing wrong with using the Webber for side dishes. You have it use it.

    You have it backwards. You need to convince yourself that you DON'T.

    There is nothing wrong with making due with what you have but maybe you can squeeze some of the sides on the egg and give her a side by side comparison.

    Really just give it some time, my wife didn't understand until I bought my second large and now she is all for getting a small so we can travel with it.

    Part of it is explaining that things cook differently on the weber and with 2 eggs you're timing will be better. 

    My weber kettle sits lower than my XL in the nest.  I like the egg height much better.  Much easier on the back.  That's a good reason right there.  ;)
