Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

buying myself xmas gifts

 Well I been buying gifts like shun knives, a nice fork, a plate setter , and a inferred red thermometer  that I'm wrapping up and sticking under the tree in the back. They say to me from my wife on the card. Little does she know that she bought this gifts for me. :). Except I paid for them LOL
It will be a " Thanks honey ! It is what I always wanted !!!  Now don't touch my knives! "

    I had a big box delivered from the Ceramic Grill Store this week.  Santa is going to be very good to me this year!

    Ordered a HD 3D ready projector last night. Can't wait to play Mario kart with a 10' screen on the garage door.

    I must confess-I was lucky enough to be able to recently buy a bottle of Van Winkle's 20 year old bourbon (not from the heist) at retail and gifted it to myself.  I doubt I will ever spend that many $$ on any liquid again.

    Santa brought me a Chef's Choice slicer, and a Harrington's ham to dismember on it!

    I got a bottle of 12yr pappy and it was $75. The people in front of me got the last bottle of 15yr and it was $89. The place had 2 bottles of 23 and 5-10 bottles of 20yr but I didn't see the price on those. I saw the bottles of 20yr on Craigslist for $400 and up.

    Friggin marketeers-I can remember (no more than 5-6 years ago) when you could usually find the Van Winkle 12 year old on the shelf and the 15 was available about 6-9 months of the year.  No more-
    And the 12 year old has moved in retail pricing from $50 to 60-75/bottle in the store.  
    The chance I had was at my local store who decided to do a raffle-the 23's (3 of them) were sold for $400 (price included a charity contribution of $100 due to the expected after market sales).  The 20's were $130.  I will crack it open on Dec 27th-and likely finish it in 2015

    Man that's self control. I'm just hoping I can save a drink for new years.

    A friend's wife asked me to pick up something he could use for his XL.  Her directive was to "buy him everything you have."  Yahoo!!!  Shopping at the Ceramic Grill Store.  Bought him all sorts of good stuff, but I couldn't resist picking up an AR for me.  I even opened it before Christmas, and will break it in easy tonight searing some Ahi, and then tomorrow will be ribs to try out some of the new rubs and sauces from the exchange.  Oh, but now I have equipment he doesn't again.  Life can be sooooo cruel.

  • I ordered a table for my medium from JS Design.  It may be delivered after Christmas, but that's OK.  We had another 6" of snow last night on top of the 4" we got earlier last week.  Iowa has excellent meat available, but this weather has me considering a move further South after the wife retires.

    Three 22 gallon Brewhemoth fermenters just arrived.  Just need to get the appropriate valves and then I will be taking my brewing obsession to the next, but probably not last, level.

    Ordered myself a home brewers kit to get myself started with the obsession. Perhaps one day in the not too distant future I'll be moving up to @gmac level.

  • I also had a big box come in from The Ceramic Grill store. But I'm not putting it under the tree, I already used it saturday for ribs and sides.

    That is some serious brewing equipment. Makes sense though, the 5 gallon stuff doesn't make enough to justify the time spent sometimes.

  • We need some steak knives. I was figuring they didn't need to be great as a good piece of meat shouldn't need a cleaver to cut it after cooking. But I have Henkel's some other good knives, so I'm asking what types should I look at?

    As far as buying gifts for myself for my kamado, well, I have not done that except for a Weber chimney starter, CGS spider. I have asked for a wireless grill thermometer setup, that is wicked cool. Come on santa!!

    I haven't really done 5 gal batches for a while now. Minimum 10 gals because as you said, it's a lot of effort. I now buy grain 300 lbs at a time and I'm getting a dedicated gas line put in my garage to run my boil kettle. But every time I up one thing, I just run into another issue. Now I'm going to need more kegs for storage and I'm scanning the Internet for a used canner. It's a dangerous obsession to get into. Wish I'd starting egging first. Way cheaper! I could have a half dozen XL eggs for what I've spent so far and I can't even legally sell my beer. I'd have a better chance selling pulled pork out of my garage than ever getting a brewery licence. Of course, I may trade the odd glass for services rendered....

  • I have a wireless grill thermometer also from me to me. Haven't used that one yet.
