I'm an "Egghead"!

Well i was about a year away from a new gas grill... a few friends have the egg and never stop raving about them... I did some research and brought the evidence needed for a new grill to my wife... without putting up any type of fight said yes right away... allrighty, have to get this quick before she changes her mind... I call up a place my neighbor bought one from on Monday of this past week... Do you have a Large Egg in stock? yes. Can you deliver before Memorial Day Weekend? yes. Can you take payment by phone? "what's your card number?". ummm... Let's do this! So far i have only cooked Turkey Burgers (a staple in the Mazzdog house). and some chicken breasts this afternoon... I got a pork butt (I'm in NC) I'll smoke on Monday. (It's Memorial Day, a day to remember those that gave us the 4th of July, and everyone that has defended that right since).

Have to say... both the burgers and the chicken breasts have come out perfect.. Can't wait to smoke the pork butt..

    Good thing you didn't break the news about how many eggheads have multiple eggs. You can tell her later....

    We'll keep it our little secret. In the meantime, Welcome!

    Welcome aboard and make sure you take plenty of pictures and post them. You'll get funny looks from the guest when you break out the camera but they will forget all about it when it's chow time ;) .

    ...and don't forget, a true egghead will go to the town of a fellow egghead to find lump on sale before said egghead can't get there first :whistle:

    Guests?! I get funny looks from the guy in the MIRROR when I take pics of the food I cook! :)

    Welcome anyway, Mazzdog. Enjoy your new toy!

    Don't forget to buy the mini for those romantic cooks for the two of you. A foil pack of mushrooms and wine, filet mignon, and a potato for each of you with sour cream and chives. Then a nice bottle of Cabernet.
    Okay, that's tomorrow's cook for sure. B)

  • I'm a native north carolinian, tho unfortunately I live in south carolina now. Is that BBQ restaurant, "The Pit" in Ralegh as good as its advanced publicity. And if/when you figure out how to cook legitimate EASTERN North Carolina, vinegar sauce sopped "cue" on the Egg, then let me know!

    The Pit is still there... To tell you the truth I haven't gotten down there yet.. A lot of my friends have gone and say it's fantastic though.

    I used to live in Raleigh, but I am now in the burbs (Holly Springs), just south of the Capitol City. Welcome to the site!

    As far as the pit goes I've heard nothing but great reviews. With 3 kids I haven't found the time to get up there (need a sitter something bad) to try it. Don't go to downtown too often anyways. Did hit Marbles the other day though.

    I really like Danny's BBQ. They are in Cary and possibly other locations. One is on Tryon Road near US 1 and the other is on Cary Parkway.

    I have a few friends that live down in Holly Springs.. It is quite a drive to get to there from here so i don't see them as often... One place to try for good BBQ is the "Q Shack"... i have only gone to the one in Durham and it is fantastic. It is considered Texas cue though and not Carolina style. I'm going to try the Pit sometime this summer... Might do a Brewery pub hop and hit the Pit while i'm there.
