  • WeberWho? said: Buy the biggest f'n annoying gas grill you can find if the egg doesn't pass.  I'd roll this halfway across my yard into the neighbors and ask them if they're happy?   If his HOA was doing this just to be a bunch of pricks a…
  • @DaveRichardson that made me laugh out loud in the office. 
  • Fred19Flintstone said: I've gotten sick from too much beer in college.  I got over that. True, I'm with you.  I will say though getting sick from beer is a lot different for me than that food poisoning sickness though.  Back in college we'…
  • My wife is pretty picky but she's come a long way in the 6 years we've been together.  When we first started dating her go to order when we would go out was chicken tenders and fries.  She just wouldn't risk not liking something.  Since then she's e…
  • GATraveller said: Man - that is one of my pet peeves.  I'll eat anything that doesn't eat me first as long as it's hot and there's lots of it.  One of my girls is fairly picky.  We make sure they try at least one bite of everything we cook so…
  • @McStew I second what @NPHuskerFL said about the upgrades.  I love that custom handle for sure.
  • Looks pretty delicious to me.  Congrats on the upcoming wedding.  I was in your position 5 years ago and I was looking sharp but missing all the delicious food I was avoiding.  Since I've been enjoying that food too much and not looking so sharp.  S…
  • I liked that this forum was open to look at before buying and without registering.  I got a lot of info about the Egg both good and bad before I even seriously considered getting one.  Not everyone has had a great Egg experience, some people seem to…

  • johnkitchens said: 2 pages of helpful replies to the OP's question on this forum. 3 total replies on the KJ forum. I am not sure about the Primo forum.  Help when I need it from fellow eggers is worth a lot to me.  I found the primo foru…

  • SoCalTim said: The plate setter sits inside, it allows you to pull everything (food, cooking grate and setter) without touching the hot setter if you need to add lump or wood. Pretty ingenious if you were to ask me. What he said.
  • I haven't been into Nibble me This that much lately, I'm not sure what it is but I've started to check it less and less.  It seems like he's definitely not posting as much as he used to, I'm sure you run out of content and desire as time goes on.  I…
  • @tfhanson I can completely agree with that.  I wasn't trying to come off as attacking you or anyone in particular, I just can't really fathom what my reaction would be if a neighbor came over complaining about my grilling or the smell coming from my…
  • Usually nowadays I'm just starting to prep as the Egg is coming to temp and getting clean smoke so I'm putting the rub during that time and throwing it on, especially if I'm just cooking one pork butt.  If I'm cooking more than one that's going to r…
  • tfhanson said: THEBuckeye said: jonnymack said: Curious, was that LinkedIn thing your neighbor? She described a run-in, any truth to her account? I can certainly respect not wanting to have smoke fill your house but that just su…
  • Of the two options you listed I would say KAB as I use that every time I egg and my CGW swing grate is pretty much a dust collector.  Like @fishlessman man said though the KAB is not needed so I would get that as one of you last accessories.  If I w…
  • Cookbook_Chip said: With a KAB, do you continue to use the firebox grate, or do you remove it? I removed my stock grate, others still use it.  If you remove it you will see a difference in temp control because more air is getting to your c…
  • I think they're still using pretty much the same gasket that they've been using for years.  As far as improvements go, I know they've made some changes to certain models over time.  For example the handle on the large wasn't as wide as it is now, I'…
  • Spaightlabs said: I think most would agree that wood and lump spark a bit more than propane? Guessing that is where insurance carrier concerns come into play. Candles and cigarettes probably start more home fires than grills,  but a lump-fu…
  • Nanook said: THEBuckeye said: Check this out. The anti-Egg Beeotch...... https://www.linkedin.com/grp/post/3352309-210365959 Not to play devil's advocate, but...... if what the lady says is true, I can sympathize with her. My Eggs…
  • We do our own family recipe on Italian Sausage and I smoke them occasionally. Usually we just grill them.  The one thing about smoked sausage I've picked up from watching some of Aaron Franklin's videos is that he's always talking about how the saus…
  • tfhanson said: First, they are being dicks. Someone probably complained about the smoke. I'd get an electric smoker from Home Depot and run it 24 by 7.  Couldn't be more right about the dicks part.  This is also an awesome idea on givin…
  • From what you described it sounds like you're fighting a losing battle because they're so interested in enforcement, glad we're not like that in our HOA.  I also think spending your time getting 2/3 of the whole HOA to sign your petition is a losing…
  • hondabbq said: Do you have your original bill of sale? Provide this against the timeline of the new bylaw put in place. It wouldn't matter.  When you born the laws of the land were a certain way but over time they've been changed and you'r…
  • The only reason that it would have to do with the HOA's insurance rates would be if it's connected property like a condo.  The HOA insurance would be there to cover things in the common area, people getting hurt in common areas, the HOA would have a…
  • It's bullshit how much power HOA's can have.  Pretty much all states have it to where they can't really lose...  As for your case I'd try and fight it just to give the middle finger to the HOA but I don't think you'll win even though they made the r…
  • @SGH very cool piece, thanks for posting.  I'm actually trying my first brisket wrapped in paper now.  I'll be wrapping it around 6 am or so.  I could only find white butcher paper so that's what I'm using.  I don't think the color should make much …
  • I only use wood chunks and I always cook with them dry now.  When I first started doing BBQ I would soak the chunks because everything I read at the time said to do it that way but I was never really happy with the product.  I never really liked the…
  • Last week my Costco had whole packers so I bought 3.  This week they only had flats...  It's hit or miss in Northern VA.
  • Smoke it until it's done...  It should feel like butter when you probe it.  Cook time is dependent on variables you didn't provide, what temp are you cooking it?  Most go 225 - 275 degrees, in that range you're looking at 1.5 - 1.25 hrs/pound usuall…
  • Starting him young.  I like it.  He'll be helping with the prep work before you know it.
