  • Anthony Up North, I ordered some last week from BBQ's Galore on line. Buy what you can at Walmart (it's cheaper), but BBQ's Galore has some of the stuff that's harder to find in either chunks or chips. [ul][li]BBQ's Galore[/ul]
  • one feral kat, Not sure since you didn't specify, but I would guess this comment was directed at me. In answer your "IMHO", I haven't blocked those holes yet, so your assumption is pointless. Why so aggressive, it's not allowed to complain about …
  • Grillin Bill, When and how did you apply it, during or after the cook?
  • YB, Made JJ's sauce with the first brisket I cooked and really enjoyed it. Thanks!
  • KennyG, Beautiful job. Ditto to the other comments. Enjoy!
  • Nature Boy, I've used Stubb's BBQ Sauce and like it. Haven't tried the marinade.[p]TR
  • Tommy, The Kamado comes in gas or electric (as well as charcoal). They have conversion kits for both. One of these might be adapted to convert a BGE. Retrofit kits run $125-$150. Check this site under "Pricing";[p]Anothe…
  • Taco, We have one dealer here so they are very "proud" of their BGE's, $615 with no accessories. From what I've seen posted $540 or so is more reasonable, but what are you going to do? You can order one from somewhere else but the shipping will b…
  • one feral kat, Here's the link:[p]I'm still confused; It shows the cuts as the shoulder and the picnic. I was under the impression that the picnic was what most people used, but just read a post stating other…
  • Gretl, Great tip. Since I'll be Egging pizza this weekend I'll put it to use.[p]Thanks. TR

  • Dooms-Dave, Not the absolutely lowest price for lump, but available almost everywhere; Go to your local Walmart. $4.97 for a 10lb bag. If it's not where the other charcoal is located, check in the nursery area where they keep the BBQ grills.[p]TR
  • AbqEgg'r, For some reason the link didn't post:[p]

  • Ashley, Thanks..I'm going to plug mine too. Firebrick mortar sounds interesting but I wouldn't know where to get any. Will use the bolt like you for now.
  • Gord, Congrats, you're going to love it!! Don't forget to buy charcoal:)) Try your local Walmart it's $4.89 or so for a 10lb bag.
  • Nature Boy, I'm sure you've already got yours wrapped..Just wanted to say last weekend I had one totally stall at 174 degrees. I wrapped in in foil, a couple of towels, then put in an ice chest for 45 minutes. Came out wonderful, juicy, and pulle…
  • Spin, These are Oscar Mayer's left over from a fundraiser my wife was at. I looked the archives and found reference to Buffalo hot dogs that are supposed to be great. Will try them next time we buy some..without kids at home we don't eat many HD'…

  • Nature Boy, They must have extended the time period..this receipt was from Atlanta.
  • Tim M, They did a good job on the packaging-each setter was in it's own box surrounded by styro. Either it was broken before it was shipped, or they left enough room for these two boxes to move around and bang into each other. If I need anymore I…
  • Char-Woody, Thanks for the suggestion. I do want the legs, but could use another pizza stone too. I would think UPS will cover the damage, but who knows.
  • Anthony Up North, Decided to open the box. Aparently the stock/item number is PS14 and it is for the Large Egg only. One had a broken leg, I'd read this is a problem..better to have your local dealer get one if he can.[p]TR[p]
  • Anthony Up North?, I purchased two plate setters from BGE, they just arrived today. You are correct, they are not listed in their price list. The lady I ordered from was very rushed and went to hang up without telling me what the cost was. I bel…
  • Tim M, Just went back out and looked; I have two tops and they are both the same. It actually appears to be a very clever design. Wide open, all of the wholes are open at the same time. As you start to close down some are covered sooner than ot…
  • Elder Ward, Sorry, they were cooked was done on Sunday and the other on Monday. I just used your method of wrapping them in foil, towels, and then into the cooler. I used this method on the butt because it had stalled out at 174 …
  • one feral kat, Got the recipe and I'll give it a try.[p]Thanks, TR
    in JJ's rub Comment by AbqEgg'r May 2000
  • AbqEgg'r, Did a little more research: For all types of wood look under "Smoker accessories". They list mesquite lump charcoal for $4.79 per bag, but don't say what size.[p]TR
  • Elder Ward, Congrats on a cook that will be hard to top. Wanted to say thanks for your help. Used your method of fire building three times, and although I know it will eventually happen, have never had fear of a fire going out over night. The la…
  • Nature Boy, Here's the link for BBQ's Galore:[p]TR
  • Sundown, I'm in the process of cooking my second butt, so this is not the voice of experience speaking (I'm sure some others will jump in). Why did you stir the coals, did your temperature drop off? All the recipes and tips I've read say once you…
  • Tim M, Have to admit I haven't done it with sweet potatoes. I was actually thinking of regular baking potatoes. We have a BBQ place here that smokes them, then stuffs them with brisket or other meat and BBQ sauce. They are really good, and of co…
  • Gfw, Why wrap the potatoes in foil? We love the smoked flavor you get just rubbing on a little butter and throwing them on the grill.[p]TR
