Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Good deal on Hickory

I guess I am cheap, but I hate paying $7.00 for a 5 lb bag of smoking chunks when the trees grow wild.  Today I visited an Amish sawmill, picked up a few slabs of Hickory ( 80 to 100 lbs by my estimation) for $7.50.   I think I am set for at least a year, even if I give some to my son.  Weekend activities will include breaking these down into appropriate size chunks. 

I also use Apple which I pick up from a local apple farm market.  A "car pack" of apple firewood is $15 and covers me for a couple of years from a smoking standpoint.
