  • I used to use the plate setter for burgers and changed to direct a few months back and the results have been better.  400'ish 3.5-4 minutes a side works for me every time now, but I cook pretty thick burgers too, 1/3 to 1/2 pound. 
  • Thanks again, Fred, for your thoughtful post about our local LEO who got ambushed and gunned down by a racist maniac and whose families are left without a spouse/father/son/brother.  Kind of thought that's what this thread was about when you posted.…
  • Pepe Le Pew said: @stlcharcoal This is different.  It is not to intercede for a specific activity, but to bring all police forces under the control of the federal government.  The object is to align the focus of all police forces with the visio…
  • Foregoing all the partisan rhetoric that is now expected by our administration and our media......thanks for the thought and post Fred.  Those of us here appreciate it.  Sad days around here, but hopefully some can learn from the loss.
  • Thanks Fred.....ordered a Thermopop just under the wire. 
  • stompbox said: Like it.  Do you just use quickCrete for these type projects?  Rebar or mesh reinforcement? I'd love to see how you made the concrete top as well.  I'd like to give that a try for mine. 
  • HeavyG said: thetrim said: We need to fight to win.  Rules of engagement have been way too tight since day 1 post 9-11.  By both Bush and Obama regimes. Sounds like you have it all figured out. Yep...bombing/killing a LOT more …
  • SGH said: Turk2011 said: I normally don't say much. Probably the whisky typing.    Carry on with the dumbassery  You don't say much my friend, but when you do it's short and to the point. I like that.  
  • YEMTrey said: My personal favorite "underrated" movie: Totally forgot about that one.  Definitely one of those where no matter how many times you watch it, you find something new to laugh about.  "Now turn to the left!"
  • Not sure about underrated, but must watch: Outlaw Josey Wales For a Few Dollars More Pale Rider Bull Durham The Shining Halloween The Hunt for Red October North Dallas Forty Office Space The Firm The Breakfast Club Sixteen Candles Alien…
  • Sardonicus said: KennyLee said: Good to hear.  Hate to see folks get their panties all in a wad over nothing. Be well....and Merry.....well, whatever.... I gotchur "panties" right here, Kenny! (Hope you're not offended.)    …
  • Good to hear.  Hate to see folks get their panties all in a wad over nothing. Be well....and Merry.....well, whatever....
  • Sardonicus said: Outstanding! A thread featuring several of us proudly extolling the virtue of offending others and not giving a damn - just 'cause we can. More of that legendary Exceptionalism, I guess.   
  • Merry Christmas is my preference and what I usually lead with.  If I offend someone, sue me.  Now I gotta' run.....late for the annual Midwinter Secular Nonoffensive All-Inclusive Holiday Festival at the office complete with a celebratory life tree …
  • I said chicken fajitas.  Seriously....can you comprehend?  Wow....  I'll end this by enlightening you that there are people who know how to cook (I am one and my family would agree) that do things differently than you.  I know that's obviously a ve…
  • You should be done.  Ever heard of chicken breasts, chicken fajitas, chicken wings?  Seriously, man.  What is with you?  I do at least 3-5 lbs. of chicken fajitas a week.  Takes me about 25-30 minutes start to finish.  And that is grilling them in…
  • Nope....that would be assuming that I'm doing a shoulder AND assuming I use 4 lbs. of lump (you assume a lot....like chicken is always a low and slow). First of all, it would be less than 5 lbs. in the first 6 cooks AND less than 4 lbs. on average …
  • KennyLee said: 1.  5-7 lbs. 2.  6-8 cooks 3.  Most hot and fast, i.e., chicken, hanger steak, burgers, steak and one low and slow, usually ribs or a butt. Now I know it's reading comprehension.  Seriously.  Do you take a moment…
  • @Lit is it math skills or reading comprehension that you're lacking?  As stated earlier in the thread, what @HeavyG describes very closely resembles roughly 80% or so of my cooks at least, probably more.  Even said it in my very first response, whic…
  • HeavyG said: Because of this thread I was curious just how much lump (by weight) would actually be used in a typical (for me) short cook. Tonight I grilled a few burgers and a bunch of scallions. Total time from lighting fire to closing vents…
  • Lit said: KennyLee said: My numbers are in line with yours @Mikee as stated in my post earlier in the thread.  That's over three years using the Egg.  So I know your numbers are/can be accurate.  Some just like to stir up **** for some…
  • Looks great man.  I know a guy who builds tables real similar to that and they are very well made. 
  • My numbers are in line with yours @Mikee as stated in my post earlier in the thread.  That's over three years using the Egg.  So I know your numbers are/can be accurate.  Some just like to stir up **** for some reason.
  • If it's even a question, get the 30.  That's what I got and no way I'd have been happy with the 20. 
  • Just pulled into my office parking lot when the wife called and told me about it.  It was really early and details were sketchy and no video yet, but she thought it was just a small plane that had gotten into trouble.  For some reason, I knew that w…
  • 1.  5-7 lbs. 2.  6-8 cooks 3.  Most hot and fast, i.e., chicken, hanger steak, burgers, steak and one low and slow, usually ribs or a butt. 4.  Has been Ozark Oak, Rockwood, then The Good One, but now Royal Oak due to lack of availability of the …
  • My Ace has had Yeti for a couple of years.  Picked up the big Rambler there earlier in the summer with a $10 off coupon.
  • Spider or no spider, man, I love where you live.  Lucky man to be living in the least populated state and one of the most beautiful to boot.  Whereabouts in WY?
  • We've had DirecTV, Dish and now AT&T U-Verse for both internet and TV.  Out of all of them, I'd definitely pick U-Verse.  AT&T's CS has been better....not great, but better than the others, who were absolutely horrible.  I've got four boxes, one w…
  • I have always used a shop vac (plastic version) with no problems at all.  Of course I only clean it out every 4-6 cooks or so and always at the beginning of a cook after the Egg has been shut down for at least a couple days, but usually longer....NE…
