  • I'm going to pimp myself here... iPhone users, check out my HeaterMeter app in the app store. It's called Pit Meter. It even has a BGE background theme you can choose :)
  • Reading this thread I almost forgot what it was like before the high-que grate. No more wiggle stick, clogged holes, troubles getting up to pizza temps, etc. Most times I don't even bother stirring the used coal or cleaning ash. Just dump a fresh…
  • EggNorth said: Brisket at Costco? I must be missing something, does it go by another name? The second time I saw prime packers at Maple Grove Costco I asked the butcher if this would be a regular thing and he said it would, that t…
  • I've seen prime packers at the Maple Grove Costco last couple of times I've been there, otherwise Angus meats in Maplewood has choice packers for a decent price.
  • My setup is exactly the same as nola. Lately I've been doing a NY-style dough at 625 and pizzas take about 3 minutes, maybe slightly longer. Top and bottom are cooked very evenly this way.
  • Thanks guys!  Can't wait to see what the fuss is about.
  • Line etiquette question for those who have done this.  I'll be in Austin next week with family.If I show up in the morning with my dad, and then later my wife, 2 kids, and grandma show up and join us as we're nearing the front, is that going to be f…
  • Heatermeter... if you're confortable soldering a PCB and like projects. Hands down the best feature set and support with the exception of the lack of ability to control multiple pits. It's the only one I'm aware of that can use a draft based mecha…
  • Personally I think that the large is a minimum size for a one egg owner. I think it's the perfect size for some mainstays like brisket, ribs, pizza...
  • I tried that method and had flaking problems. Search that page for keyword "flak" and you'll see I wasn't alone.
  • Are we talking freshwater drum? I catch those all the time around here fishing for walleyes and I know no one who keeps them, myself included. They have a reputation for poor table fare in MN.
  • If you deliver I'll take one of the jalapeño pepperoni pies. Looks good and I just ate.
  • Right with you.  Found a prime packer at the Maple Grove Costco recently and it went on last night.
  • Before trying to flaxseed oil approach, I'd recommend reading the original Sheryl Canter blog article here: http://sherylcanter.com/wordpress/2010/01/a-science-based-technique-for-seasoning-cast-iron/. In particular search for keyword "flak" on t…
  • If you get the setup right there will be no need to remove the stone or cool it down. Like I said what works for me is PS legs up, grid, 3 firebricks on edge to make a triangle, pizza stone. I suspect that the extra mass of the firebricks probably…
  • How long did they cook for and at what temp? Any sugar or oil in the crust? How long did the stone preheat for? What I've found works for me is to get the stone high in the dome. I use a plate setter but the AR shouldn't be much different. I …
  • @jhl192 Does it look like the shipping left the coal mostly intact or were you left with a lot of small pieces? My winter stash is down to 1 bag left of Royal Oak, and all I can get around here is that or Cowboy. Am considering a Firecraft orde…
  • I think many here don't use covers. This one worked well for my LBGE with side tables and cost $27.99. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001H1HP2M/ref=oh_details_o05_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  • Make sure you know whether your butcher sold you a full packer or the flat only and adjust based on that. That said I'm no expert but foil isn't getting anywhere near a brisket of mine until it's ready to rest in the cooler.
  • I'd probably be in. For those who have done this sort of thing before what's the average cost to send a typical beer package (shipping only)? I remember the original thread. The original poster mentioned New Glarus and since then I pick some up…
  • Second the Bulleit Bourbon for under $30. It can even be put into under $20 if you catch the right sale.
  • Conneggticut_Yankee said: There is a free app for iOS that I just downloaded called Pit Meter. The author says he's still working out the kinks but it worked flawlessly for me yesterday. I don't have any experience with the Android app. I jus…
  • The dogs sound really good. Very kid and adult friendly. Thanks for this.
  • I remember seeing a post where he said he used an old aluminum roasting pan, not disposable.  I bought this roaster this year.  A little spendy but seems to fit nicely.  http://www.amazon.com/Stainless-Steel-Multi-Roaster-including/dp/B0000DDT7I
  • Eggcelsior said: Damn lump gnomes. They are these guy's cousins. 1. Steal Wegman's string. 2. ??? 3. Profit!
  • I tried making Alton Brown's pretzel recipe on the egg recently as sort of a test run for burger buns. The recipes look similar. http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/homemade-soft-pretzels-recipe/index.html I used the pizza stone on the…
  • Check your safari settings and make sure that Accept Cookies is set to Always.
  • Thanks for the compliments.  Sure I'll share the setup: Platesetter, legs up, with a drip pan.  Indirect for 90 minutes at 350 degrees.  Tented for half hour then sliced. What is a spatchcock chicken, Alex. I'll take cuts of beef for $500.
  • I bought it after getting frustrated with hard to achieve high temps for pizza and having clogged grate holes.  No more problems.  Just made pizza tonight and didn't have a problem maintaining 675 dome even with the DFMT partially closed. 
  • When I have steaks that are on the thin side, I tie the circumference with cooking twine and pull the knot nice and tight.
