    I only have five or six Bookmarks, and this is the only one I refer to constantly:
     
     
    A mistake I made a lot when I first got an Egg, was trying to dial in the temp precisely: open, too hot, close, too cold, open, yadayadayada.  I now leave the daisy wheel off for anything 300 or higher, and on (with vents open) for any low-und-slows; dial in the temp with the lower vent only, using GG's guidance for starters.  And, I no longer chase 230 F if my egg settles in nice at 240F; ain't worth it and makes no difference in the cook.
    Anybody know what happened to Grandpa Grub?  I haven't seen a post from him in a long time... 
    :-S

    Wow, that's a good one, especially for newbies (like me).

    Thanks for sharing.

    Both of those look great.  My wife can't go for anything that looks back at you while you cook it but I may have to slip that in one day.

    I don't have any bookmarks food related.  I just google stuff and if I want to use it, I copy it to a Word doc and save it in a recipe's folder.  Then when I use it, if I want to modify some, i do.  For one, trying to eliminate having lots of leftovers all the time, I modify recipes that call for a 1 lb of hamburger etc down to 1/2 lb hamburger and reduction of everything else as well to correspond.

    and it is very rare that I follow any recipe exactly.  One thing I do a lot is google and find 3 or 4 recipes for the same dish. I review what they have in common and what they have that is different.
    I think about what I like and don't like, and then make my own recipe based on the recipes I found and what I want to use or not use.

    Yeah, that's a draw back on some that I've bookmarked but if I want to add notes I can add a post to it.

    I kept reading FTC and wondering what that stood for and ended up with another bookmark:
