  • I had this same issue and went with a medium.  Pretty easy to move around, load into a vehicle, etc. especially when you lighten it by taking the insides out.  Now for my family of 4, the medium gets used more at home and my XL waits for the big coo…
  • Looks like I'll be in the market for a medium.   We head to the Bend area a few times a year.  A couple times with the family to Brasada and then various golf guys trips throughout the year as well to various places where we can rent houses or cabi…
  • Awesome.  Thanks guys!
  • I think it definitely burns cleaner.  Haven't quite seen the results you're getting, but cleaner than a lot of others I try.  Unfortunately, difficult to get where I live in Oregon.  My parents live in Cheyenne and visit my Grandmother in northern A…
  • Looks great.  I've got a cedar table awaiting a granite top as well.  Haven't been able to find a piece of remnant close enough to the right size though.
  • I needed to do something as well and have found something that has definitely worked well for me.  I used to box in my younger days and while it was definitely much easier to drop weight then, when I needed to drop weight, I really only made changes…
  • Just had my fire grate replaced under warranty.  My dealer was also sort of difficult to deal with, so I went straight to the Mothership.  Within 24 hours, I had an email from them to myself and the dealer detailing the course of action to be taken.…
  • I joined that club as well.  Took pictures this afternoon:

  • apinion said: In Chef John Besch's, My New Orleans Cookbook, he gives some great roux advice and since I've read it I haven't gone back to conventional roux making.  Basically, as long as your constantly whisking, you can have a dark roux in 15…
  • I'm not even sure what is meant by the R&B combo.  I just got the AR / Woo2 combo and love it.  Haven't done much at the stock level since receiving.  (please ignore the poor glue job on the gasket....the ribs and brisket were much better).  Was…
  • Mine arrives on Wednesday....can't wait.
  • I cleaned a tenderloin a couple weeks ago.  Most got thrown into the freezer, but I did the head roast low and slow (250) and then finished with a reverse sear.  It was incredible tender and flavorful. 
  • I go indirect around 300 and do them quite often.- leftovers go into a Smoked Turkey Breast / Chickpea / Kale soup that is fantastic.
  • FearlessTheEggNoob said: I like the egg as much as the next guy, but to me it seems like a "wrong tool for the job" kind of thing for chili. I can go about my business and let this thing simmer along for hours. And I'm saving lump. In fact, rig…
  • 5 qt Lodge Dutch Oven for $30 on Amazon right now.  Somehow I get these daily amazon "sale" emails.  About a year ago, they had a 6qt Lodge enameled DO for $30.  Had to be red - all of the other colors were 3x the cost, so I figured I needed 3 red…
  • Prior to the Egg, my family ate pork tenderloin very infrequently.  Since getting the egg, it seems to be on the menu almost once / week.  I typically toss a frozen tenderloin in brine before leaving for work in the morning.  Once I get home, fire u…
  • Born in Jamestown, grew up in Gackle.
  • Born and raised in NoDak where UND hockey was the closest thing we had to professional sports.  Even have my son started young...
  • My family is a little weird.  Those who like dark meat, want the skin on.  Those who prefer the breasts like the skin off, so that's how I cook them.  Cut the skin off the breasts but leave on the rest of the chicken.  Still cooking to temp and have…
  • Waiting on mine - but it's coming. I'm in Portland, OR.  Only way to get OO around here is to order online.  Luckily for me, my parents had to go to Rogers, AR recently.  They also have to come out to Portland in late September.  They now get to tr…
  • Very similar in taste and texture and oil content.  Sockeye are typically smaller fish so require slightly different cooking times.  With the thicker filets of a King, you have some more options without drying out the fish.  Some of the best King I'…
  • This is very similar to what I've designed to build for my egg.  Unfortunately, drawing pictures is the easy part.  Cutting wood is pretty new to me, but I want to see what I can do.
  • Alright alright....I'm a lurker.  Also got my first egg a couple months ago and between this forum and experimenting with the egg, I may have to quit my job to continue what has quickly become an obsession.  No pictures, but I've done spatchcock chi…
