There are two very delicious food holidays coming up that we wanted to share with you all because cheese and guac deserve to be celebrated! Guacamole Day is on September 16th and Cheeseburger Day is on September 18th. Happy cooking EGGheads! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

  • Lots of good suggestions, glad to know I'm not the only one who has had this happen! Will try least aggresive ideas first, and work my way up. I do have some extra pavers that I can test on first. I procrastinated pretty long to attempt to clean the…
  • Flying Hot Air Balloons, Curling, volunteer leader church children ministry programs (AWANA) 
  • I have two of the pamperd chef grill mitts, working good so far for pulling hot pieces out.
  • A lot of butt rubing happened today! Several posts of pulled pork are on the forum tonight. I am in WI, it was lightly snowing when I light the egg this morning, flurries on and off all day. Don't think spring is ever going to start at this pace.
  • @skiddymarker the slaw is a simple family recipe my mother inlaw makes. It is mayo deluted with milk, vinigar, chopped half head of cabbage, and fresh ground pepper. No idea on quantities, she makes it based on consistency. Pared very nice with the …
  • A lot of pork was cooked today by the look on the forum! Always a good time to host a meal off the egg, espically with family.
  • @PlanoPokes79 is that your envelope? Looks like we share 2 common interests?
  • I have a 7 lb bone in shoulder I am planning to cook for pull pork tomorrow. Using bad Byrons BR over mustard. Cook plan was slow start, turbo through stall. Should I apply late tonight or in the am 1 hour before putting on the egg?
  • I got a large a few Weeks ago, in my quest to plan my initial setup and stretch the budget as far as I could, I came across a post where a bge owner was using a Kamado Joe indirect setup. Yes it is from "the other cooker", but it fits the lbge perfe…
  • That's a great weekend of bbq! Two cooks I need to try, but not on the same weekend.
  • Did you guys ever shop or eat at Live Oak Market downtown Appleton when it was open? That was my place. Knew of it, was in the store once. We don't spend much time downtown, but should spend more, lots of great local places on the ave. With kids, i…

  • @Jscott "Totally Naked" is one of New Glarus seasonal brews, only available for a few months. Can only (officially) get New Glarus beer in WI, they will not distribute outside the state border. I am not affiliated with the brewery other then being…
  • What did you use for the 2nd rack, our was it just balanced on the bottom butts?
  • @jeroldharter according to the label on the package they were half ribeye roast?
  • I have a maverick, but don't yet have a Thermapen, Bday is in two weeks. my local dealer just ordered 10 of them, one has my name on it! Trex sounds like a fun cook, but reverse sear sounds more promising to get good result for first run at steak. I…
  • I'll throw another variable in. When I got my large, I didn't buy a plate setter, I got Kamodo Joes version. It has a wire frame that holds a stone that fits in the large perfect. You can place it in the cut outs where the ps legs would go, or raise…
  • I did some of my wings with corn starch, I just dumped some in a ziplock, then took wings with evoo and s&p all ready on them, and "breaded" before cooking, gave a nice crisp finish and great texture, if you like breaded wings.
  • I have only had my egg and table for just over a week, but have been wondering about fire risk from heat transfer from the egg to the inside edge of the table top? I had thought of running gasket material around the hole, but then it would be a snug…
  • Got the quiche reference, just responded litterly B-)
  • @Henapple and @nolaegghead: I've never had quiche, so not sure if its similar? 8 eggs beaten, cup milk, 1/2 teaspoon season salt, 2 cups frozen hashbrowns, 1 cup diced cooked ham, 1 cup shredded cheddar, 1 tablespoon dried minced onion mixed togethe…
  • I am bookmarking this post, deffinitely need to try this one out. Happy Resurection day !
  • I built a raised grid yesterday, got everything at my local ace hardware. They sell Weber product, but are not a bge dealer. Stainless hardware was almost as much as the grid, total was about $30. The grid I got is 17 inches, and has handles, which …
  • I have heard mix reviews on the BGE cook book, but if it has more stuff like those lamb chops, maybe it would be worth the cost vs free recipes on the Web? Do you cook from it often?
  • I did ribs for four hours tonight, had moderate rain 2nd half of the cook, wasn't a problem, but I did put the ribs on a tray with foil to wrap the racks in foil, and to add sauce. Making two Extra trips in and out of the house was a pain, but kept …
  • Very tender, they passed the bend test and toothpick test. They where not fall off the bone, had proper "bite". The end bones where a bit dry, will probably take one bone off each end next time to shorten racks up just a bit, and get rid of thin end…
  • @Griffin  The Garlic Parm recipe I worked from was:1/2 cup butter melted1 Tsp garlic powder1/2 Tsp onion salt (I used onion powder, didn't have onion salt in the house)1/4 tsp pepper, I used several turns of fresh ground pepperGrated parmesan cheese…
