  • I agree---when the bone easily pulls out it is done--best test.  If you have a temperature probe in it to monitor the cook, do the bone test at 190-195 and don't go above 200 in any case.  Also, foiling liquefies the bark.  Most people, myself inclu…
  • FearlessTheEggNoob said: I read somewhere to use a wadded ball of aluminum foil to scrub off the loose flakes. That's what I occasionally do--a combo of a clean burn and then a scrub with a wadded ball of aluminum foil to knock off an…
  • Eggcelsior said: Do you want a true vinegar(mop) sauce ala eastern NC? It should not contain ketchup. They are incredibly simple with only 4 or 5 ingredients. 2 cups vinegar(white or 50/50 white/cider) 1tbsp sugar 1 tbsp crushed red pepper …
  • Purchased the Stoker Wifi back in the summer. I also own the DigiQII (not the CyberQ version).  I like both of them. I was a little irked because the Stoker Wifi does not work with my wireless router (found out that I am not the only one).  However,…
  • It takes a while for the ceramic on the egg to heat up.  For a fire around 300 F, start a very small fire at the top of the lump, open up the bottom vent about an inch, and open up the daisy wheel (but not pivoting lid) all of the way.  Then be pati…
  • I did not like the look of the old wooden handles either.  Looked really bad after a year of grease, smoke and weather.  I give Danny's custom handles a big thumbs up.   I sent him a jpeg image of a main image for the carving, along with a descripti…

  • Very nice.  Love the look of red cedar.
  • My wife and I are going down the week before Christmas. Anything you guys recommend? Last time I was there we went on a fishing charter with Pisces Fishing Charters.  They are located around the corner from Cabo Wabo.  Went out for tuna but on the…
  • Nice table!  It does not take too long to learn how to control temperature on the egg.  Here are some tips I have found helpful for low temperatures.  Start out with a small fire.  I use a propane torch (MAP gas torch, actually) to light the top of …
  • I used a bullet smoker for years myself.  They are great smokers, but nothing in my opinion beats the versatility of the egg.  Quite the setup you have--nice job!
  • This is probably nothing new to a lot of you, but I found a cheap way to add lights to the build. I just discovered LED all weather tape lights.  I bought a strip of these and the controller for around $26 from Amazon.  You can set the controller to…
  • I would be glad to elaborate on how I solved any of these problems to the extent someone is interested. One solution that may be helpful to someone with a build that closes in the egg relates to how to seal the egg to the countertop.  My premise is…
