It feels as though we’ve waited forever for college football to start, and finally the wait is over! Check out our tailgating page for recipes that are sure to become fan favorites. As an added bonus, the day before Labor Day is National Bacon Day and we don’t know about you, but we like putting bacon on anything and everything, so we’ll definitely be celebrating that. It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

  • I switched to Rockwood a few months back.  If there is not a store around you that carries it, you can order five bags at $19.99/bag and get free shipping from firecraft.com.  I really like it.  I know a lot of people on here like Ozark Oak and Roya…

  • I once had dreams of having a nice table or out door kitchen with my egg...until I started seeing pics and hearing stories about peoples' tables catching fire.  I know there is a correct way to build one (stone PLUS an air-gap) but you better be sur…
  • OmahaOne said: Look to see if an Eggfest is going on around your area. He can get a great deal off the price by buying a demo egg. The demo eggs are brand new and only used at the Eggfest. I'm doing that this weekend at the Indy Eggfest. …
  • stemc33 said: cottonseed said: tell him to get on craigslist and look for a used one. Used is great if it's a deal that's too good to pass up. For me, the warranty is worth the extra money though. What has him really cons…
  • You all talked me into it.  I signed up yesterday.  My wife was even all for it and really excited to go too.
  • I live about two hours away and really considering going this year as a taster.  How many cooks do they usually have?
  • I know I can...I lost 65lbs over about 6-9 months once just by cutting portion sizes dramatically and exercising. Getting my mind right is 75% of the battle. Thanks for the encouragement.
  • I told here I could definitely cut the portions down but I can't cut it out. She went vegan a couple of weeks prior so I knew we were not going to totally agree.
  • vapilotda said: Shop vac with the bag in it. The bags will hold quite a bit and it makes for easy disposal. I use a shop vac with a bag in it as well.  I tried going without a bag one time and it almost ruined my filter.  I use the bags …

  • I would just take the dog to the vet.  It could really be anything.  As an example, we gave one of our dogs a ham bone to chew on one time and long story short, she swallowed little pieces of bone and it made her sick in the form of vomitting and di…
  • westernbbq said: cast iron grate and a hot charcoal fire yield those awesome results- wow, that looks pretty to put this into perspective, a steak like that in a restaurant is minimum $30, and probably closer to $45.  I can buy a pack of thre…
  • NPHuskerFL said: Nicely done. What were you running as far as temp? I cooked at about 600 degrees. Two minutes, flip, two minutes, flip, close all vents for three minutes. Take it up and let it rest for about 10-15 minutes and enj…
  • johnmitchell said: I agree100%..Now try layering some Fogo lump around the vents ( they are big pieces,and allow good air flow)...then fill up with Rockwood. This works great for me on my low and slows. I use a napkin soaked in olive oil a…
  • What is the chances it could have just been moisture developing on the egg from the air...sweating?  I don't know where you are at but if this happened when there was a lot of pollen like there is right now in TN, that could explain the yellow resid…
  • @stlcharcoal may be able to help you out.
  • Prepare to be overwhelmed with comments.I have just switched from BGE to Rockwood and have really been pleased with it.
  • KiterTodd said: Does anyone ever cook their steaks frozen?  I know, I know...but a friend of mine years ago insisted that is how most of the steak houses cook so why shouldn't you?  I have done this, and other than having to cook a little longer…
  • Here is my method (and I have never heard of anybody else doing this on this forum but it works for me).  I get the grill up to the 600-650 range.  If you have thick steaks, I would cook them 2-3 minutes, flip them, 2-3 minutes, flip AND close all t…
  • What is the weight of the pork butt? You are looking at about 1 - 1.5 hours per pound probably.
  • I buy steaks in bulk at Sam's.  I will get two steaks (one for me and one for my wife) and put in a vacuum seal bag, drizzle it with olive oil on both sides, and then sprinkle Angelo's Steak Pit (in Panama City Beach) seasoning.  I will then vacuum …
  • cazzy said: Make your own for 20-30 bucks.  Weber 18in stainless charcoal grate fits perfectly with 6in stainless carriage bolts. sorry for the blurry pic. While the home brew kits work, any person that has used a rig will tell you there is no …
  • @SmokeyPitt‌ Thanks, I did not know that. That must have been in my pre-egging days.
  • Carolina Q said: FearlessTheEggNoob said: I have a large in a nest and when I do a low and slow it is with the guru installed sandwiched between the screen and the slider. It takes some effort to install it that way, and no way it can …
  • Does anybody know of any kind of mat you can put on a deck that would protect it from embers?  I use a guru so I am not worried about it on low n slow cooks, but I know when it gets up to searing temperatures you can see glowing embers in the bottom…
  • What are you smoking? If it is poultry, I would recommend chips because you don't want too much smoke. For long smokes of pork or brisket, I prefer chunks. Everybody has their preference though. Just think of how long you are cooking and remember ho…
  • I will be 27 three weeks from today. 
  • Here is what I do for a medium cook. Let me first say I have never tried a reverse sear or anything so do what you think sounds best. I get the grill to 600-700 and cook one side for 2-3 min (depending on thickness), flip them and cook for another 2…
  • I would go with @ads75‌ on this one and question the wind. I have never experienced this but if you know your seals are good, the wind forcing air around the lower vent could very well do it. The lower vent seems to me the most likely place for air …
  • I have had a MacBook Pro since 2010 and it still runs as good now as it did new.  Other than how effortlessly everything syncs from my iPhone, iPad, and MacBook Pro, the thing I love the best about it is I have not had to buy any software for it sin…
  • You could always split the team up and take home first and second place.  That will really get them fired up :))
