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

Lazzari mesquite

Ordered this bag from GFS. Opened it to find these 3 chunks on top. First time using it.
I could smell the difference. Been using WGWW,but now that Ace is out. I bought it more because of the price. 40# for $20.

Hope my poppers and then chicken breasts taste ok.  

Tried a Shiner Bock today also. Pretty good.

    Well here's my take. Sparked like crazy. Seemed forever to get up to temp. Then went hot, yet could control it. Smoked the entire time,it never went clear. My chicken looked like it had soot on it. 
    I'm glad the taste wasn't overpowering

    I have since dropped Lazzari and switched to Royal Oak.  Lazzari isn't bad by any means but it does spark quite a bit, takes time to get up to temperature ad it ashes a ton.  I also don't like the sizes - tons of large chunks and small pieces.  Royal Oak has been better for me.

    Weekend cooks update.

    Did BBs on Saturday. Dome temp never went above 375* with both vent wide open for 2.5 hrs. Yet the bowl and ring were white like a clean burn. Did burgers yesterday after waiting almost 30 mins to get to 350* .Lots of ash. Had the smokey flavor but the coals smoke through the entire cook. Thought the FD was going to show up.

    I think I'll mix what is left with a bag of RO (GFS labeled). Got to say I won't get another bag.
