  • TEggSun said: @DMW, they seemed ideal.  They were about 1.5" thick.  I cooked them direct at about 450 degrees on a cast iron grid.  I pulled them at 135 IT.  My timing was bad, so they ended up resting for about 25 minutes.  I wonder if that h…
  • smokeyw said: bgebrent said: Thermapen.  Then learn how to use your cooker.  Thank you sincerely for your service. I agree with this. However, I have to say I never thought of a Thermapen as a BGE accessory. It is really just a …
  • Got 2 mixed cases of Maine Beer Company from the tasting room when I was in Maine.  Thinking of how to get 3-4 cases next time I'm through without making the wife I'm crazier than she already does.
  • We just picked this up for salt and have really been liking it. I have a 6" Magnum that we got in 2009 or 2010 and have had no problems with it, so I would recommend that as w…

  • I know you're retired so this might not be a big concern, but in general I'd add in a question about your schedule.  If you consistently only have 25-35 minutes to get dinner done, you might want the speed of a good gas grill to be ready to cook.  I…
  • I just heard a really good review of Monteverde - the restaurant from the Season 9 Top Chef runner-up.  You might not be able to get in, but if I were going to be going to Chicago I'd try to get to Alinea - almost the definition of a food adventure.…
  • Polished this off:
  • Looks good.  I got some of that Lane's in the exchange, haven't tried it yet, but I see it going on some lamb blade chops this week.
  • Plus one to the thermopop. Definite recommendation for whichever you choose, go to their website and sign up for emails, they run sales on both very frequently.  When I got my thermopops they were offering them at like $20 each if you bought 5 or m…

  • Poured a beer for me and a beer for the wife:
  • You could also try using chicken skin as the wrapper.  Pull it off the chicken, stuff, toothpicks to hold it together, and then crisp it by grilling directly.

  • Just unloaded the car after driving from Maine back to Maryland.
  • Looking around the LL Bean flagship store
  • Picked up 2 mixed cases of beer from the Maine Beer Company tasting room.  Now @eggcelsior just needs to hope that some makes it back to Maryland.
  • Logged out, poured a beer, and started vacation.

  • yljkt said: So they took your money for a product they don't have? Then missed the ship date twice? Seems like you have been more than patient so far.  It's the RTIC way
  • Carolina Q said: @Mickey, if you get to Freeport, check out Mickey D's. About 1/4 mile north of Bean's. You don't have to eat there (please!), but it's definitely different.  I remember the first time I drove my wife past this on the …
  • BBQBuddy said: Is that rub from Fresh Market?  Can't quite read the label.  Those are 2 of my favorite flavors. It is.

  • DoubleEgger said: Jeremiah said: That'll be the only welcoming sign you'll likely see at bwi. That place is a zoo!  Nothing compared to Hartsfield.. IMHO it's easily the best to deal with out of the three in the DC area.
  • Bentgrass said: Focker said: Shattered mine on the patio.  Bought a Smokeware Cap and haven't looked back.   Does that smokeware cap do a good job snuffing the fire out ?  High on my want list and the first thing I thought when …

  • I know what you mean about edges.  I hiked the Knife Edge on Mt Katahdin in high school - not bad when I was dumb and 17, wouldn't do it again though.
  • @kbr718 - thanks!  I don't make that rub, I get it from The Fresh Market, there are some in IL, but I don't know if they're in your area:
  • Finally, I work from home twice a week.  That let me throw this little half butt on.  I started a bit too late, and SWMBO was hungry when she returned after actually going to the office, so it ended up more chopped than pulled, but still good eats. …
  • I know everyone raves about spatched birds, but there is still something about a straight up roasted chicken.  I use the same process I do in the oven - about 435-450.  Preheat a CI skillet in the hot egg for about 20 minutes, and then drop the bird…
  • While the in-laws were here I also did a huge batch of chicken thighs, which are really one of my favorite things to eat. I dusted a few with Mango Chipotle rub and Caribbean Jerk rub (for me) the majority with Santa Maria style rub.  Again, did rai…
  • Aubie1 said: The turbo pig was excellent. The only real difference was the amount of bark. Turbo pig may have been just a tad less moist but that may have been because I was trying to find a difference. It is good to have another play in the b…
