We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

  • Charcoal Mike, I did not realize that you are in Charlotte-I am in Matthews and a new egger as of last month. Good to know of at least one local person on the Forum.
  • Danny, Welcome to the club! I bought my egg last month and like you I am really enjoying it. This site is a great resource. I would suggest becoming familiar with the sites offered by Nature Boy, The Naked Whiz (Lump Database) and others who off…

  • The Naked Whiz, Since I'm in NC as well I would like to know your source for the Kamodo extruded and for that matter the WGC. Does A Southern Season in Chapell Hill have a decent selection of lump? How about some of the other specialty/gourmet sh…
  • Zeke, KennyG is right-cooking these steaks do not require any special treatment. Just don't overcook!! I believe you will find these among the best beef you have ever tasted. Enjoy!
  • The Naked Whiz, We have an inexpensive digital camera-let me try to get you a picture of the cart one way or another. BTW, your table gallery was really helpful during the planning of my cart. We used red oak and finnished it w/ tung oil. Very n…
