  • I cook my steaks this exact way but I use compound butters. I also use my cast iron on about 80% of my cooks. I use the cast iron on my BGE, however....adds a load a flavor..No clue why I would leave the BGE shut. I make nacho cheese on my BGE…
  • You are stirring up my appetite and Im stuck at the office!  Can you let me know how long you cooked the potatoes and if you blanched them?
  • Good suggestions!
  • Looks good! The best advice I've gotten for pork tenderloin is to brine. I was never happy how mine turned out until I started brining.... I brine, hammer flat, put grape jelly, cream cheese, finely chopped jalpenos, roll, wrap in bacon and cook …

  • tksmoke said: I keep seeing threads about folks having trouble properly lighting their lump using paraffin based fire starters.  While there are lots of ways to do almost anything with the egg, some are easy, and some require much more effort…
  • Can someone post the link to "Mickeys" turbo method. I've tried turbo before and it was no beuno...
  • fence0407 said: @Tbonez3858 makes me glad I ordered the CyberQ! I really like the metal case of the stoker but in my opinion everything else is better about the CyberQ wifi. I've never been so aggravated at a device as I was the stoker.…
  • I had a stoker and returned it... I've been in the networking field for close to twenty years and Stoker has the poorest of any interface (physical and GUI) I've ever used. I found out after hours of messing around with the Stoker and reading dozens…
  • I have a blendtech and love it. I will never buy another smoothie. This is my favorite recipe... 1 banana ... 1cup of strawberries.. 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract... 1 scout of on whey (French vanilla).... Honey to taste... Four ice cubes...…
  • I've heard the cast iron can leach and bad taste with anything with Tomato in it. Due to that I've been looking at the Lodge with enamel covering. I specifically want to cook spaghetti sauce and I dont want it to taste like a soup fit for Vampires. …
  • I got a tiny shop vac from lowes ($19.99) specifically for my BGE a few weeks ago. One of the attachments will suck up the ash but leave any lump of worth size. I use the vac on the grate first and then use it on the firebox. It takes about two minu…
  • I guess it could be fused...The last cook was a 450 degree hamburger cook. Is that high enough for a fuse? If so what's the best way to unfuse it?
  • I had a stoker and returned it for a CyberQ. I spent hours trying to get my stoker working. I read many forums and found out the stoker is picky and only likes certain access points. I was able to get it up but on an ancient access point in a comple…
  • It doesnt matter how much I season a pan its one high heat sear away from needing to be boiled and then re-seasoned. I still dont understand the point of a seasoning if you cant hi heat cook on it without it ruining the seasoning. 
  • I dont get the passion for the "the chicken" either. The skin is rubbery after it soaks up the sauce. If you pull the skin off it taste like a spatchcock chicken. I MUCH prefer a spatchcock chicken with big Bobs Alabama white sauce..
  • mombasa333 said: Goodness gracious, this is why I went with DigiQ. Greyhound craps on my big yellow extension cord at least I can see it.  My hat does goes off to you guys who are willing to step out and attempt the wi-fi route.  I'm clearly …
  • baychilla said: I received my stoker a few days ago. I'm extremely impressed by the quality and extremely unimpressed with the device software and documentation. I'm in the technical field (specifically networking) and this box is a nightmare…
  • I was in the same boat as you...Everything I read was positive until I ran into to issues. I started researching and found a great deal of information on the topic. I will say that once you've gotten it up and running its a GREAT piece of gear. It h…

  • I just ordered a stoker. I decided based off of the software and what appears to be a more sturdy case. I will end up owning two pits in the future as well.
  • The cooks I've had too much smoke from are both direct and indirect. I typically light two places with my electric and then wait 15. What bothers me is that this is the same ting I've been doing for six months but with completely different results.
  • I ate a hamburger about 13 years ago at muss and turners. It was the best burger I had ever had. I asked what made it taste that way and the waiter simply stated the big green egg. I finally bought one about six months ago.
  • No wood just royal oak lump...
  • I cooked it raised indirect..
  • Thanks for the input guys..I was leaning towards the CyberQ but the Stoker has more of an industrial strength case. CyberQ states the reason they use ABS plastic is for wireless strength. Metal does have an impact on wireless range but it is so smal…
  • Mr Bs Bistro is one of the best meals I've ever had...Their shrimp and grits are unbelievable. Make sure to hit cafe du monde for breakfast and beignets
  • Im not in the market for either eggcessory but I do live in Canton...Smoke on my southern brother
  • I have a funny feeling the typical "egger" isnt the market for the XXL. I have a feeling that there have been request from BBQ restaurants and maybe even food trucks with a customized trailer. If its commercial, a 3-4k price range really isnt out of…
