Hop on down to your nearest EGG dealer this week to pick up some Easter EGGcessories! Here are a few that may be useful for Easter, the V-rack, electric charcoal lighter and flexible skewers! Now that Spring is in the air, it's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

  • I would also be all over it if I were closer.  As a used purchaser, I have no warranty and personally think these things are all destined to crack eventually.  My dad's did finally after 10 yearsl
  • I was given these when I first started barbequing.  Very thick and very nice.…

  • My pops' egg cracked and he was all bummed thinking his egging days were over.  I was like "dad, your egg has a life time warranty, go get a new one."  He didn't believe me.  The dealer gave him a hard time and fought him on it trying to tell him it…

  • GeorgeS said: I don't see any links on the site to anything other than charcoal, might be because I'm on my phone right now. Am I missing a link to the pitmasters?I think you need to email him.
  • Agreed.  Posted a few Fridays ago here as to where I should buy it.  someone said st Louis charcoal.  An hour later, it was in the mail.  Had it Monday.  boom, now THATS instant gratification!
  • Also, you can only fill the bucket about a third full otherwise it doesn't work very well.  You have to filter two or three batches each time you fill the egg but I think it is worth it.
  • I must admit, this is actually my second version.  The first I only drilled holes about 1/2" and they were not nearly big enough.  The 1" holes work much better.
  • This is one of my favorite pizzas!   Heres mine.  It is a little simpler.  I made it again the other night.    Today im going to make a brisket, bbq sauce and onion pizza for lunch.…
  • GeorgeS said: Nice easy way to filter out the dust! Sometimes the simple solution is the one that is most elusive! Great job!! Thanks, my lump usually gets dumped into buckets anyway (one for "used" lump with wood chunks that may be not totally b…
  • Next question.  Dinner is 3 hours away.  can I FTC a brisket for 3 hours?  Ive FTC'ed a butt for that long but never a brisket.  
  • I just checked again.  the edges are now nice and tender too!  Only one more part of the point is not tender but I am going to pull it in 20 minutes. 
  • I ended up using the pitmaster to start her up. Btw, i use the chimney method to start it. I had a meeting with a life insurance guy so couldn't really monitor it. Worked great! Brisket is now on.
  • Got it today!  My question is this, should I start my fire and plug it in and let it dial into the temp with the pitmaster installed or get the egg stabilized and then start the pitmaster?
  • Dang, that looks good!  Let us know how it turns out.
  • cazzy said: Is the brisket floppy or stiff? Pretty floppy. The only thing keeping it from being even more floppy is the cry oval packaging.
  • I should say. I've only done two other briskest. Both we're select and came out ok. Not great but plenty good to eat. I hate to admit this but the only place I can find a packer is walmart. They are $2 per pound so I don't get as nervous screwing it…
  • SkinnyV said: Why would you buy it from someone other than who makes it.  Wouldn't the third party have to increase the price.St Lois charcoal prices are the same and his service is probably faster. It was with my grate. It was actually cheaper…
  • Damn, that was fast.  Stl Charcoal was on it!  It is on its way.
  • My PC stone is all out of round and warped from two to three uses on teh egg.  It stays inside now.  be careful, don't want to make SWMBO mad!

  • Rrp, I get it. That's why I am complaining here and not to my boss. Everyone is replaceable. The only way to fix the problem is to work for myself. I'm working on that.
  • Hi54putty said: I don't understand why you would admit you are a jerk and hard to get along with but wouldn't take the trip. You need to go all in one way or the other. Also, life isn't fair and everyone roots for the nice guy to win. Jus…

  • Foghorn said: It ultimately doesn't matter if they made the mistake by accident or on purpose.  The appropriate professional response is to give them the benefit of the doubt.  That's what you would want if it were you on the other side of this…
  • o yes, the data was accurate.  the same manager  who sent out the "you won" email was the only manager who managed the data  and put it all together, week after week.  Their excuse was simply "we sorted it wrong".  to me, its strange it was sorted f…
  • My wife had invited her best friend from college over and the friend decided to invite her family who I had never met before.  They were like "we'll bring the food, you cook it!".  "sweet" I thought, "this will give me a chance to learn my egg"...I …
  • My favorite time of the year to bbq is in winter even though I do it more so in the summer.  Love egging at 0 degrees!
  • They are like $1.70/pound by me in Colorado.  It is also the only place I can find one "off the shelf" so that is another reason I have used them.  Again though, ive only cooked two.
