We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

  • I have done both and find when you wrap it the bark loses its crunch and can become soggy.  I do think wrapping keeps the brisket nice and moist but not sure it makes enough of a difference.  You can also unwrap it the last 15 min or so to crust it …
  • Freshest Tuna I have ever eaten was when I was station in Japan and we went out deep sea fishing.  Boat Captain took our first catch and make sashimi for the crew... its was amazing -- still warm. Since we shared he also shared his fresh squid... th…
  • egger ave said: according to their web site as of 2011 they have no retail outlets. I found their location in Austin. if I get a chance, I will check it out. Thanks that would be great
  • Totally sucks -- they are saying he had some academic violation.   We need more criminals than valedictorians if we want to compete with teams like Bama....
  • I see amazon ships some larger bags for free as long as it is over $25 -- which is pricy unless its a 40lbs bag or you buy a few smaller ones... Maybe worth trying... 
  • TFols said: Firecraft.com. They sell Ozark Oak and Humphrey's. Thanks TFols
  •   Cowdogs said: I'd say where ever you saw the free shipping, it did not include Canada. My "Out" laws are from Canada -- it costs an arm and a leg just to ship post cards...
  • dang that's a good deal!
    in Lump Comment by BigGreenBBQ May 2013
  • I put in gasket on the inside of the vent vise on the egg... I have not had any issues even during a burnout...
  • Here is my XL setup
  • I don't care for it but its just fine in a pinch. I would rather use RO (sold all over) or my fav WGWW. As far as what wood it is made from is somewhat irrelevant as long as it is hardwood.  From what I know and have read Lump charcoal will not impa…
  • Not a huge fan of cowboy but dang that's a good price! 
  • Hey @Waughco how do you disagree with something but then have no comment?  Heck no comments on the forum at all!  Where is the troll button?
  • I bought a looftlighter in the fall for ~$33 at William-Sonoma... I got a great deal (so good I bought 10 of them and gave them as gifts). Having used it a ton - I would NEVER pay $80 for it.  It takes a while to warm up and the end of mine has melt…
  • damn -- it's good but not 1 1/2 hours away good! 
  • I have only done butts but have eaten both.  I agree on the "hammy" taste to picnic.  I have also heard that in the south -- picnic is the king.  Picnic is also supposed to have more bone in it and many think the more bone the more flavor. You could…
  • 2.5lbs is unsat for a bag of charcoal. But with that said WGWW is all I buy now. I have never seen so much dust even in cowboy... Where did you buy it? (I too have only see the green bags) I am particular about buying certain bags at the hardware st…
  • @Chubby  - I agree with you that the daisy wheel is easy to use and to care for (and it comes with the egg). I just used my vent for the first time tonight and it is as simple as the wheel - plus the bling. Now it is a bit expensive (one of the reas…
  • Only issue I see with the home depot rain cap over the daisy wheel is that you cannot really adjust the wheel anymore unless you have a HUGE rain cap. Using mine tonight for steaks and then a long burn for brisket 
  • I forgot to mention that I also asked about a vent for the MINI -- was told "to be determined." Hopefully they will put it into production.   
  • Great job. Looks awesome. Great pics too - love the one with the billowing smoke. How old is your egg? Looks like a new gasket.
  • There are a few being sold on eBay - you can buy the sheet of metal at home depot for under $20 (enough to make two large or one xl size). I made one but don't have a welder so I used metal ties. Works to reduce lump.  Mine is pretty rusty now (afte…
  • +1 for RRP and the Rutland gasket -  @carter422 I sent you the info. Be sure to also buy the Permatex Ultra Copper ($5.50 @ Ace).
  • I usually buy it from online and have had it shipping to the store for free more then a few times. Since a few more people were doing the same my local ACE started to carry it (and it was cheaper than the online price). I have 8 bags so I am set for…
  • I have an XL too and I bought the AR and spider from CGS - I am very happy with the products. The designs are well thought out and made to last. Not to mention made in the USA. I made something like the raised BGE grate and it just did not work out …
  • I dunno why -- cause I have a ton of wood I guess. I have heard of people using just wood like in a wood fired BBQ pit so I figured I could do the same on the egg. I imagine it would be for short cooks like steak or chicken. Maybe I could even snuff…
  • Buy the new table nest - its only $21 and it looks better than a paver -- I have one in the XL table I built...
  • I made my own - it was only a few bucks and I love doing stuff with my hands and seeing the results of my labor when its all done. Ohh and it works great!here is a "how to" from the Naked Whiz: http://www.nakedwhiz.com/peel.htm  
  • Black_Badger said: Hey @mb99zz, when did you order the WG to be shipped to Ace? I've been using BGE lump and want to try something new (since it's so expensive) and when I went to Ace.com over the last couple of days I can no longer find the …
  • I heard mangrates are so good they don't even need salt...
