We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

  • Love a good deep dish.  Nice work!
  • HDumptyEsq said: I bought a 10.5" CI skillet today and cut the handle off. This would be a great first outing for it. Thanks for all the great pix. Be sure to take a couple pictures and throw up here.  I'd love to see how yours turns out.
  • Ktim said: Thanks@StellarEvo I am going to order one right now! Have you ever tried more toppings on the pie? I haven't tried with more...only less.  We've had some picky eaters come over that don't eat sausage or/pepperoni.  If you don'…
  • KiterTodd said: The real crime here is that I'm reading this on a day I won't have time to grab lunch.  :) Looks great! Can you use regular pizza dough or is there something unique about deep dish dough? Not to rub it in but I had lef…
  • jshillin said: Looks good!!  Do you preheat the pan/stone at all? It's funny you ask because I was asking my wife before while the Egg was warming up if I had preheated the stone before.  We went with no preheating deep dish.  We preheat…
  • I'm really sorry to hear about that.  I'll keep you and your grandmother in my thoughts and prayers.
  • My Egg was a gift and I would have had a hard time convincing myself I needed a ceramic grill while I was able to get the cheap off-set to work for me. But they told me I almost got a KJ instead of an Egg.  I love my Egg and while I don't always wan…
  • mountaindewbass said: I dunno about DP Swamp Venom.  My family loves heat so last time I made chicken I caked it on the chicken...didn't taste hot at all. Good flavor..but not really hot..could just be a bad bottle who knows Ha...I'm j…
  • busmania said: me too.  where to order? smokeware.net looks like the address.  I added a cap and a new gasket but I'm not a father yet.  The moral dilemma! 
  • They look great.  I'll see about giving those a try.   I just found @Big Green Craig the other day and was checking out his blog.  Pretty good stuff.  Here is a link to the recipe on his site: http://www.biggreencraig.com/cinnamon-rolls.html
  • Lovely pups that'll make for an excellent eggin' buddy.  Hate to hear about your other dog.  Hope that goes as smoothly as possible...
  • I went to Magnolia's in Charleston with my wife for a wedding anniversary and we still talk about wonderful the food was.  It was honestly one of the best meals I've ever had.  I wish it was closer so I could go back more easily. Poogan's Porch, whi…
  • Thanks for all the replies.  I'm going to pick something up this weekend.
  • @Jeffroe189 That's what I was thinking too.  I had that same one pulled up and was looking at when I made the first post. I've learned and I know that if you pay $(x) for something that was supposed to cost $(x*2) or $(x*3), you will regret not gett…
  • I was thinking about one the smaller handheld torches.  Are those a waste?
  • JerkChicken said: Using unriped, (green) plantains remove the skin, cut the fruit into one inch tubes and deep fry them with oil in skillet or deep fryer. Once they are golden, you remove them, stand them on end and then mash them between to…
  • CarolinaCrazy said: Looks good! Complete Jamaican meal there with the Red beans & Rice, Plantains & Red Stripe. Very classy.  Did you do the plantains on the grill, too? Thanks, it was really good and I'm already hearing a request to…
  • Thanks for the tips guys and sorry for taking so long to post an update.  It turned out really great.  I ended up doing about 375 indirect for about 40 minutes.  Here is what it looked like plated:
  • I tried it because SWMBO really wanted to have "beer can chicken" despite what I've read about spatchcock chicken and how it cooks better. My bird had spots that were undercooked and parts that were overcooked.  I don't mess around with undercooked …
  • BigWings said: Assuming you have reached temperature and are burning clean smoke, just shy of an hour for a whole chicken.   Around 30-35 minutes for pieces.  165 breast, 180 for thighs. My wife hates my estimates though.   We sometimes have …
  • Poor planning...I know. :\">
  • Thanks for the help. When you do indirect...about how long does the chicken take to cook?  I don't want to tell SWMBO that dinner won't be cooked until really late.
  • stlcharcoal said: Man there are a ton of you guys in that area......no wonder we sell so much charcoal in those parts.  Just a heads up, starting next week it will be available at American Casual Living in Suwanee in addition to the local Ace…
  • Lawrenceville here. BigGreenCraigdotcom said: Is anyone local going to the Georgia Mountain Eggfest up in Hiawassee? My wife has a triathlon that morning in PTC so I'm not sure we'll be able to make.  It pains me greatly to have to miss…
  • Drigler said: I probably made adjustments to the dampers every 20 minutes. From what I have read it seems like others get their eggs more stable and have to make adjustments less frequently. I do the same thing and I have wondered questi…
  • I got a DigiQ DX2 a couple weeks ago for my birthday and it has increased my Egg usage to a couple times a week instead of once every couple of weeks. It seems to have really helped get my temperatures up to where I want to be and held them there wi…
  • Eggcelsior said: StellarEvo said: @hapster What are Rattlesnake tails? Never heard of those. They are basically the same thing. Just made with longer(and milder) peppers like Anaheims. Sometimes the name is used interchangeably or…
  • @hapster What are Rattlesnake tails? Never heard of those.
  • @pantsypants I took as many seeds I could get out as well as the spine and just used some "Mexican 5 cheese blend." We normally use cream cheese when we do poppers but I wanted to try "pure" ABTs. @henapple I'm going to surprise my wife with shrimp …
  • Thanks for all the great comments.  I was almost convinced it wasn't going to turn out well but, thankfully, the Egg hasn't failed me yet. It's a testament to the Egg itself and this forum for being so active and full of experienced Eggers that are …
