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

  • Will do. Kirkland's Organic beef and chicken stock are very good. I see a Costco trip in our future. I just checked and Amazon has it for $14.54 for a 14.5 oz jar and it's Prime, so no shipping. Any idea how that price stands up to the Costco in sto…
  • Carolina Q, we use Jane's Krazy Mixed Up Salt in just about everything. It has salt, herbs, spices, dehydrated onion, and dehydrated garlic. 1/4 tsp. has 220mg of sodium vs 500mg plus for regular table salt depending upon the brand you use. Most gro…
  • I have only seen butter beans, the large yellow variety, in dried bean form in South Carolina. If that is all you can find in your area, you can use a pressure cooker. You can use 2 cups of beans, 4 or 5 cups of water, 1 teaspoon of Himalayan salt, …
  • We have a Maytag 18.1 cf upright and are looking at a 15.8 cf chest freezer just for buying 1/2 of a cow for beef. Pay attention to the warranties. Most companies say their warranty will be void if the freezer is kept in a garage or a basement. Mayt…
  • +1 for the BGE electric starter. Like @tazcrash says, just set a kitchen timer for 6 to 8 minutes. We have an old chimney style starter for starting charcoal and putting newspaper in the bottom that we use to put the starter in to cool after pulling…
  • Another thumbs up for @stlcharcoal.
  • These are a couple of my indoor gardens. I'll snap some pics of my outdoor garden this afternoon and post them.
  • When tomatoes start to produce fruit, the plants get ugly. Tomatoes are heavy feeders. I notice yours are in containers. You could try side dressing with more fertilizer or use a liquid fertilizer and top water the plants.
  • You're welcome Grillin_beers, we highly recommend him to everyone. I have some beef ribs that I got from him a few weeks ago and I'll take pics of the cook. They were cut into individual ribs, but he told me to just let him know how I wanted them wh…
  • We buy our grass fed beef from Satterfield Farms in Taylors, SC. We discovered him at the Travelers Rest Farmer's Market. We call before the market with our order and he brings it to the market for us. Very reasonable prices and Mr. Satterfield will…
  • Weird, I just found a book by Ginger Booth, who normally writes gardening books, about vaping. She has plans for two more books. I just grabbed this and am halfway through and it's pretty good info for those just starting out. http://www.amazon.com/…

  • Thanks, thailandjohn. For you guys that are having a problem with getting the skin crispy, try using self-rising flour instead of all purpose. I use all purpose for many things, but for chicken, I always use self-rising flour.
  • Bought our first e-cig on May 12, 2012 and haven't touched a cigarette since then. I discussed it with my doctor and she gave it a big thumbs up. Hubby and I both quit the same day. Before we quit smoking, we were spending around $400 a month on cig…

  • Very versatile recipe. I also don't usually roast the veggies underneath since The Chicken lovers in our house demand potato salad be served with it. Here's a pic I posted of one of my cooks on another thread about Adjustable Rigs. Mine always turn …
  • Here's what we use. We just set it up next to our egg, which is in a nest. http://www.hsn.com/products/origami-folding-kitchen-island-cart/6800500 It folds down for storage when you don't need it. Very versatile. We use it to put the Butterball Turk…
  • In beautiful 29617.
  • Thanks for the info about his book. I just pre-ordered from Amazon too. Anxiously awaiting delivery. That chicken looks great. Do post when you try it direct.
  • Thanks! Looking forward to feedback on this.
  • Thanks bicktrav. We order the canned Hatch Chile by the case from Amazon, but I really like the products that this company offers. Will check this out. If anyone else orders, please post your thoughts and recommendations. We love hot stuff and Hatch…
  • The Volcano will do the same thing, kinda. It fits in better with our social demographic.
  • Yep. Everyone is right about the lights. No light = no lettuce. Also, lettuce in soil is a cool weather crop. Bolting is caused by heat. This is my set-up. You harvest what you need and it regrows for about 4 months. It's not soil, but it works …
  • +1 for The Living Cookbook software.
  • 62 and glad to still be here. Been egging for 13 years.
  • I got mine from Amazon - US. Try Amazon - Canada.
  • @nolaegghead, that must be exciting. We can go 12 feet underwater with our dredge and most of the rivers around here have bedrock not much lower than 7 feet, so we're good to go most anywhere around our area.
  • @GrannyX4, yes it is a lot of fun and there is nothing better than a thick steak cooked on the egg after a long day of playing in the water with a gold dredge.
  • I, for one, love this forum. The wealth of knowledge here is outstanding and appreciated. However, I have a lot of Marines in my family, so I guess my sense of humor is a little warped. That being said, it really takes a lot to offend me. My forum n…
  • That's weird. It played fine for me. Nice video.
  • +1 for stlcharcoal. Better price, free shipping and 2nd day delivery. We got the fire grate also. Only reason I haven't already posted pics of a cook is because of a twisted knee. Still in a brace and almost impossible to walk. Danged snow and ice. …
