There are two very delicious food holidays coming up that we wanted to share with you all because cheese and guac deserve to be celebrated! Guacamole Day is on September 16th and Cheeseburger Day is on September 18th. Happy cooking EGGheads! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

I just got my first Egg in November 2013, a Large and love it.  Before getting the Egg I cooked on a Weber Kettle, a 4-Burner Gasser and a WSM smoker.  Thinking about getting rid of all the other grills now since they don't get used.

  • looks great. i was considering a turkey breast cook myself did your turkey breast come with the center bone in it and if so did you leave them in for the cook or remove them? 
  • One of the sellers contacted me back and said they won it in a raffle but live in an apartment and can't have it there.  Would that make a difference?
  • Nice looking table by the way.
  • I'd get the table nest and put a paver or fire brick under the nest.  There's been a couple of guys that have burned up there tables and one guy unfortunately lost his house to a fire that started when his table caught fire after a cook and after he…
  • I'd agree with @tksmoke controlling temps should be low on your list of cons for any Egg size.  You will have learn your Egg and how to control the air flow into the egg to control your temps.  Personally I went with the Large but I could definitely…
  • @RRP, the table/egg set up will be going on a cement patio that is off of a wooden deck and near the house.  The patio will likely be 10x10 so it could be a little ways from the house and deck.  We're still working out the details of how the backyar…

  • I'm assuming that you're putting the cupcake pan directly on the grill grates on the gas grille?  Assuming that you're doing it this way that would be directly over the flame/heat source which is causing the pan to heat up more than the air around i…

  • I've been brewing for 5 years and egging for just under a year now.  We just moved and had our first kid in the last 10 months and trying to get back in shape so my brewing has suffered but been able to keep up with the egging.  My Keezer is current…
  • AmericanFlannel said: Dizzy Pig is an 1.5 hours from Richmond isn't it? Give or take depending on traffic and what part of Richmond you'd be coming from.  I've been thrilled with Dizzy Pig but it's the closest thing to me.
  • Marrt, I'm in the Northern VA area too, not far from Dizzy Pig.  I've been using the Nature Glo lump that Dizzy Pig sells and I really like it for all my cooks.  I've been wanting to try Rockwood but haven't ordered it yet but with Nature Glo I have…
  • Thanks just ordered one myself.
  • I used to have a brew or glass of wine each night, nothing extreme just one glass usually, but since the wife is preggo I've cut it back so as to not throw it in her face.  I will usually have a brew or two whenever the Egg is fired up.
  • Love this idea with the Egg in the center.  Going to add this to my potential table designs.
  • I'm a noob myself but went with the cast iron one.  I originally bought the ceramic the day before Dizzyfest but after spending the day at Dizzyfest talking to the cooks they all talked me into the cast iron one.  I've been happy with it, it does gr…
