    You posted a picture of some wings today and said the redish finish was from the marinade. What did you use, they looked great! Thanks

      Can you open the thread with the recipe?
  • anzyegg
    Yes, I was using your method of 35 and hoping to sauce 15 mins at the en0. Thanks Ron, that's what I was thinking. I hope they don't get too mushy.

    Hey Ron, I was going to turbo some St. Louis ribs today. I need them to come off the bone so my son that has a broken front tooth can eat them easier. I was going to foil them for an hour after they were cooking for about an hour. Do you think that's Ok or should I foil sooner and not as long? Of course, I was going to sauce the firs 15 minutes without foil?

    Are you the guy I need to talk to about a rutland gasket? I melted mine during a pizza cook last week.  I was going to try it for a while without a gasket but I had my first flashback tonight and dropped the lid pretty hard.  The egg didn't break... but it made me want to put a gasket on asap so I don't ever hear the sound of my egg top hitting the egg bottom that hard again!

    Hi there! Just curious ... how much for one of your gasket kits for an XL Egg? Does your kit come with everything I need to do the swap out or will there be other expenses? Also, been seeing how the gasket isn't needed on the top or lid; how does this effect the use of my probe wires? Seems like it would leave a ridged or sharper edge leaving the wires prone to being pinched. Just my thoughts. Still not sure if I'm ready to do the swap. My original factory gasket is still in good shape.

    When installing a Rutland gasket do you just put it on the base? I am thinking of upgrading from my factory gasket

    I have been posting this week.  I was on vacation in FL last week, so didn't spend much time on the internet.  I was disappointed that I didn't get to make it out to the eggfest.  By the time SWMBO and I got done doing chores and errands it looked like the T-Storms were about here.  Unless something unforeseen comes up I will be cooking at the Washington eggfest at Lindy's.  Did you know that Morton has a BBQ contest?  It's an official KCBS event.  http://www.mortonmagnet.com/mortonbbqthrowdown.php

    Hi RRP I'm new to the egg. After 30 or so years on offset smokers I just completed my dream outdoor kitchen with a large GE. Where do I find your meat loaf recipe I see everyone raving about? I've cooked twice. A whole chicken and a brisket. Chicken was great but brisket came out too spicy for us. T13

    Hey Ron. I'm new to the Egging community. I followed your turbo St. Louis ribs yesterday... They can out pretty good, a little burn on the ends... Overall they loved them...

    Not sure what time I will arrive tomorrow.  Have a few chores I have to take care of in the morning.  I will most likely be arriving around 11.  Don't worry, I will leave the toys at home. LOL.

    Great. Ill go and find the Permatex first then ill contact you about when to ship.

     

    I want to do a clean burn and have all the requirements on hand to change it after. If I want to do another clean burn down the road will I have to replace the gasket again, or will it withstand the temps.

     

    What do you recommend for preparation and what do you use to clean the edges?

    Hi Ron, I was told you were the man to see. I burnt up my gasket today doing a pizza. I have a large BGE. Can you hook me up with a Rutland? I have a paypal account I can pay you through or I could send you a check. Does it come with instructions? Thanks very much.

    Hey Ron; How are you doing? I miss Peoria (in the summertime). We're in Florida now and enjoying life. I sold my BGE when we arrived here as I had a custom made s.s. table and the whole contraption was way too big for our downsized place. Guess what? I"m picking up a new LBGE tomorrow (I found a place for it). Anyway, just wanted to say "hi" - Al Joseph

    Hi There Ron,

    My gasket is throwing smoke and it is time for a new. As a newbie, I was lighting my grill with the lid open, and needless to say it torched my gasket all on the front top side. Also, Ohio winters get cold, and I've froze the 2 sides together before and have a section that isn't fully secured to the egg. I have a large BGE.

    If you're still in the Rutland gasket replacement biz, what's my process?

    Thanks in advance,
    Clarke

    Thanks for your comment....Actually, my egg is new and having to do a real hot burn to get rid of accumulated gunk, just like i needed to do with my wood stove never occurred to me.....thank goodness I will have the opportunity to rectify that situation next time......boy I love to cook on this thing....I had no idea what I have been missing all these years as I hated the struggle with charcoal and starter and the propane trail.....this may be barbecuing nirvana!

    Hi RPP-

    I ordered the 50/50/50 bag pack from SweetAttack yesterday. They took my money and said the order was processed but no confirmation that anything was/will be shipped. How quickly do they normally turn things around for you? Left a voice mail too. So far, crickets.

    From what I've seen on the forum, you're the guy to talk to about new gaskets.  I was doing pizza a week or two ago and while I was inside prepping, I let the temp get away from me and was surprised that my gasket had melted and pulled apart when I opened the lid.  I've used it to cook since then and it did fine.  I've seen a lot of people talk about Rutland gaskets and that you're the guy to talk to for them.  What are your thoughts on the gasket issues and the best way to prevent it from happening again?  I'd like to order a medium gasket from you.  Email me at charlesbelliott@gmail.com whenever you get a chance.  Thanks so much!
