  • I've ordered the table nest for my XL, and the MiniMax already sits in one...so I'm considering putting a fiberglass pad or something under the MM, just to protect the wood from embers.  However, when I use the MM, I do scoot it closer to the edge, …
  • Yno said: That is a really nice setup, and I like the sink and faucet. Beautiful woodwork. Do you rent out your husband? I asked him if I could rent him out, and he said not unless the deal was very, very sweet LOL!
  • Got the link, this would be easy, thank you!

  • @StJohnsEgger  Sometimes in text (without intonation) it's hard to tell a person's meaning. Thank you for your support. No hard feelings here.
  • @buzzvol  I figured you were just giving me a hard time, no worries!
  • @nolaegghead  Thank you. It just confirms why I prefer horses & dogs & cats over people :-) Fortunately, I'm so blessed....and most people here are kind and supportive. 
  • @nolaegghead, which post exactly? The insult to my house?
  • @SoCal_Griller, I drain it into a bucket under the sink...thought about connecting it to a garden hose to feed into a flower bed nearby... I didn't want to tear up the concrete patio beneath it to create an actual septic drain. 
  • @Eggdicted_Dawgfan @StJohnsEgger  It is a 4 level split house, with concrete siding, and a full basement.   and the wood "foundation" under my XLBGE is cedar 4x4's topped with treated 2x10's and supported underneath with angle iron brackets, like fl…
  • @buzzvol  I use a MAPP torch to light the lump, the tiki fluid bottle has been relocated :-)
  • @Eggdicted_Dawgfan There's about 7 inches worth of gap all the way around...do you think that's enough?
  • Thank you!
  • ...and it reflects my rustic nature.
  • It has lights too, for those BBQ's that run late ;-)
  • I am trying to figure out (dumb question) what does FTC mean?
  • Thank you everyone for your help!  I guess I didn't realize there wasn't a high-que basket for my XL... I like the ease of cleaning idea with the KAB. Thanks again for the feedback! 
  • IF anyone has the KAB or the high-que basket, or something similar, I'd like to hear opinions...
  • @Eggcelsior  I just noticed that!  They have the high-que label on it

  • I couldn't get the link in the high-que site to open either, so I did a search on you tube.  
  • Thanks for your review on this! Your brisket looked great!  I just got on Amazon and ordered this therm cuz my Maverick has been giving me trouble for a year now and I'm sick of it.... Hopefully this one will be better! I also bought the extended wa…
  • Go to the ceramicgrillstore  online and buy a woo ring.  It is AWESOME.  I wish they would make an adjustable rig for the MiniMax!  Anyway, check their stuff out, they have lots of neat additions to the BGE lineup. ** NO I AM NOT A PAID REP FOR THE…
  • what is your sous vide cylinder?  Where did you get it?   That steak looks FABULOUS!
  • I love baby backs in my pressure cooker!  Remove the silver skin,season or rub and brown them 1st, then pressure cook them on high pressure for approximately 40 mins (depending on how meaty they are), then finish them on the egg!  They're AWESOME, a…
