  • I'll jump in and throw my smoked lasagna picture in.  I cook the sauce in a pot on low for about 8-10 hours before I make up the lasagna.  I cheated and used no-boil noodles.  But followed the cooking instructions for temp and time and it came out g…
  • GATraveller said: Never tried them at Fox Bros. but the place is awesome.  Their wings are amazing as well.  Smoke them low and slow overnight then fry to order to crisp them up.  Ohhhhhhhh mama!!!   =P~ Thanks for the post. Wow...that s…
  • Thatgrimguy said: Did you cool them off back to fridge temps before frying them? I didn't get it back down to fridge temp but it did rest for about 30 minutes or so.  Not sure it needed to get back down that cool.  The meat was still rea…
  • poster said: Are these much different than bon bon ribs, found at Chinese restaurants? You cooked the ribs on the egg first right? I've never tried the ribs at a Chinese restaurant.  I stick to Kung Pao chicken...mmm. I did.  About 5 and…
  • They look amazing!! How long did you leave the rings on for?
  • I tried Rockwood but didn't have the life changing experience everybody else does.  It seemed to burn through very quickly and created a lot of ash compared to the RO lump I use.  RO is easy to get, cooks well and suits my needs.  
  • SidZer0 said: I'm also posting this because a coworker of mine that uses a traditional smoker tried some pulled pork that I brought in yesterday and loved it but also said that I was "cheating" by using the Egg.  :) Thanks. I cooked w…
  • Hotch said: @StelIarEvo have done Chorizo Meatloaf sliders before at Eggfests. I elected to do them indirect @ 325-350 to allow for more smoke time. I had 3 different glazes and applied 3-4 times during the cook. Those look great.  I th…
  • Griffin said: Those are mini mini. Look like the perfect size for a mini egg. You couldn't convince her to combine a few of them? to make 2 or 3 larger mini loaves? I had a fleeting thought that I could mash them together myself before I…
  • I ended up cooking it uncovered at about 330-350 for 35 minutes.  I covered it with foil and let it cook for another 10 minutes.  Finally, I let it go for another 5 minutes to let the cheese get a little more melty.  Then let it sit for 10 minutes b…
  • While throwing it together, I found out that we only have the "no boil" lasagna noodles.  It says to cover it with foil while baking.  I'm afraid that'll keep the smoke from the lasagna...anybody tried the no boil noodles on the Egg?
  • Ladeback69 said: What wood do you use for flavor other then the lump? I've been wanting to try this and may have to soon. The other thing I want to cook is brisket chili. I am going to smoke a brisket point and let the drippings go into m…
  • 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:
