Spreading the love this Valentine’s Day with your EGG? Virginia Willis’ three course menu is perfect for a date night! February is also National Chocolate Lover’s Month, so don’t feel guilty if you’ve been cooking a little more dessert than usual on your EGG. If you’re looking for something a little more savory than chocolate, try some Roasted Chicken Flatbread or Pork Tenderloin with Honey Mustard.

  • Last couple of tenderloins I did I got the Egg up to 600+ with the grate right over the coals and seared each side for 2-3 minutes each to get a nice crust on it.  Pulled it and set the Egg for indirect at 350ish and put it back on until 135.  I lik…
  • They're already in school and cooking a bunch now?  When I was in school it was just easier and more convenient to go out and grab something or pop in left overs most of the time.  But if they're into cooking, YouTube cooking channels are great star…

  • golfandgrill said: 3 miles in less than a minute is 180 Kts per hour... Which is pretty quick for a "light" airplane. What's the Vne in a 4P? 210? 220? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lancair_IV Cruise speed listed at 220 Kts.
  • Not bad for a first try. I got almost 10 bags. May need to go get more to roast though I tried one and it was delicious. Skins are coming off easy too on the few I tried. I decided not to peel them prior to bagging and freezing because it's too late…
  • Chiles on.  Just charring the outside and putting them in brown bags to steam. Then I'll be back sealing and freezing.
  • Usually if the cryovac is ballooning it's not a good sign.  I'm not sure how long a while back was but when I buy brisket they either hit the freezer or the smoker pretty quick.  They don't hang out in the fridge too long at my place.

  • I went with the Large, at the time it was just the wife and I and we would have parties that warranted the size, plus we had plans to expand the family so it seemed to be the best option.  I ended up getting a Mini for a second Egg because the Large…
  • It's not uncommon for people that work in these eBay Warehouses to see items go for a high price, snap a couple pictures or take the pictures off the listing and put them on Craigslist for much less hoping someone will send them the money and they'l…
  • Great idea, great write up and great pictures.  I'll be trying this one out myself in the near future.  I like that burner you have for the chimney start too, might need to get me one of those.
  • @Hawg Fan  here's our recipe for the sauce.  It's the base we use and just multiply for more, we never just do a small batch it's usually 4x this to freeze some and it gets better after freezing for some reason.  Another note is that this is my grea…
  • The sauce turned out great and everyone like it.  It turned out that 4 lbs of tomatoes doesn't make enough sauce for 9 hungry Italians so I had to call an audible and some canned tomatoes to the sauce but it was still a really good result.  The sauc…
  • @Hawg Fan I don't mind posting the recipe.  It won't be until later until I do it I'm trying to keep everything moving the family is coming over to give criticism, I mean have dinner later.
  • 2 lbs each of ground pork, beef, and veal for the meatballs I probably rolled the a little bigger than normal. 46 meatballs on the egg at 350 with a couple chunks of post oak prior to going into the sauce.
  • Just getting started here's 4lbs of tomatoes. I'm going to par boil, skin, core and hand crush cooking the meatballs in the sauce. More pics to follow as we progress just using my iPad for pics so they may not be high quality.
  • I love some Monkey bread, we usually do it as part of Christmas breakfast.  I've never done it with ice cream before, I'll have to give that a try.  Great pics also.

  • We split a half of beef with our friends at the beginning of the year. The sirloin is a little leaner than you get at the store but still delicious. The only mistake we made was not knowing better and not giving the butcher instructions online how w…
  • ummm this will be interesting.
  • Thatgrimguy said: Reverse sear. Egged these steaks indirect up to 110 internal because they were thin. Then on to the Blackstone on high with butter. The wife made some amazing homemade mac and cheese and I threw some veggies on the griddle f…
  • Grate temp would be warmer.   Here's a good explanation of why http://www.thermoworks.com/blog/2013/06/dome-temperature-grill-temperature/ Edit: @fishlessman gave the better answer.  That's still a good article to read regarding temps.

  • There was a member that built a table for the Minimax a while back.  I'm trying to find the thread and if I do I'll post it.  If you're just looking for shelf height though I'd just measure how tall the carrier is and do the top of your shelf at abo…
