  • David Daniel, From one grasshopper to another: Several good books were mentioned, all of which I've purchased. The cheapest place I've found to get them is an online cookbook store, Jessica's Biscuit. Great prices, but the UPS (pony express) shi…
  • Tim M, Business would probably be better if they did some advertising. Being new and an Egg-fanatic I've talked to a lot of people about my new "discovery". No one has ever heard of the BGE. Guess that's not all bad, makes me the best Q'er in th…
  • bdavidson, That gives me one more meal before I eat NB's Ginger Mahogony ribs for ever I've mixed up a batch of JJ's rub last night and couldn't help but put some on the baby backs we had picked up at Costco. Tried some with just rub, some with …

  • Char-Woody, I used JJ's cooking method for the first baby backs I ever cooked on the BGE (sans rub), and they were the best we've ever eaten. However, I'm not sure they came up to that mouth watering description you gave ))[p]I've got a lot of tri…

  • Char-Woody, OK, I'm drooling..headed to store for ribs. What's your favorite recipe to reach this rib nirvana?[p]Thanks, TR

  • djm5x9, Guess I was just lucky on my first low & slow. I went 22 hours, the temp was steady the whole time, and I had a LOT of lump left over.[p]TR
  • Tim M, Sorry, I thought this was a different brand than the one you used..something new! I have read your comments and didn't purchase one based on those. With one low and slow cook under my belt I plan on never getting up in the middle of the ni…
  • Doug, It's made by:[p]Fischer & Wieser Specialty Foods, inc. Fredericksburg, Texas 78624 1-800-369-9257[p]We buy it here at the Price Club (Cosco). It's much cheaper than …
  • Frozen Chosen, The roasted part is the Chipotle chile. It's also what gives it that little kick. It comes in a 40 oz bottle and would probably be great on pork loin also.[p]TR
  • Nature Boy, We have used it differently, but generally just put it on at the table. It is GREAT![p]TR
  • Newbe2, I think I payed more for my BGE than anybody, with maybe the exception of Alaska. I paid $622 including the dual action top. By the time I got out of the store with a couple of bags of lump and all of the "needed" accessories I was at alm…
  • MikeO, Like you said, there are definite uses for the gloves and I don't regret getting them. As for pulling with them, I've decided the problem is my lack of experience and practice. Guess I'll be forced to cook pulled pork until I get it right.…
  • Cornfed, Thanks for all. Will start with the regular temp and work up
  • Cornfed, Is "Anchor Bar sauce" a commercial sauce, or is there a recipe to be found?[p]TR
  • Gfw, Will definitely try Gfw's sauce. I'm sure the forks work fine. I ran across the glove picture in one of my weakened moments..While trying to grow back the hair on my arm from an earlier cooking experience with the BGE .
  • Cornfed, I'd never had PP until about four years ago. That was on a visit to Rocky Mount North Carolina, and it was to die for. We have one place here that has PP, but you don't find it with the vinegar based sauce.[p]Did find some cheap lump at …
  • Gfw, Looks wonderful! The outside looks pretty "dark". Do you use it too, or "pull" the meat from the inside and throw away the shell?[p]TR
  • Smokey, Here's the link to a message that was recently posted concerning just this issue. Omaha Steaks didn't rate very high.
  • Cornfed, Search Abe's for used and out of print books.[p]TR[p]
  • sprinter, Not a recipe, but if you want a great sauce for salmon; Cosco (Price Club) has a "Roasted Raspberry Chipotle Sauce" that is wonderful. It has a bit of a kick to it. The note on the bottle says "A Southwestern Mesquite Sauce".[p]TR
  • Dr. Chicken, Talk to your dealer about a "baker's" dozen:)
  • David Daniel, Go to the home page and read the comments under the link "Eggcited Big Green Egg owners say it best". That should give you all the motivation you need to head down to the closest BGE dealer.[p]TR
  • John Decker, No it's not, buy a LARGE BGE. Rumor has it they're cheaper by the dozen [p]TR
  • Tom K, I've experienced the same "after taste" when cooking something with a lot of fat and it created a fire in the Egg.[p]TR
  • Smokin' Todd, Since the books don't seem to overlap, I decided to order all three. Figure I need all the help I can get. Found a book store thru "Abe's" that had really great prices ([p]Also plan to get "The …
  • Gfw, Sounds like a great book. I've put this one on my "wish list".[p]Thanks, TR
  • Thanks to all for the comments, I even had a laugh over the picture. Who knows what makes perfect BBQ, maybe a few tunes and some margaritas!
  • Gfw, Thanks! I've had those sited marked but haven't had time to read thru them.[p]TR

  • Cornfed, You're ahead of me. The BGE is at 220, the baby back ribs have been on for 1 1/2 hours. Just about time for the bartender to make a few margaritas![p]TR
  • RhumAndJerk, My sister-inlaw has an excellent recipe where the skirt steak is rolled into small steaks about the size of a 6oz filet. She rolls green chili and some other stuff up inside to keep it moist and add flavor. I'll get the recipe and po…
