  • jackbythesea, Yes I have. If you put an 8lb. but in an oven and set it at 350 it would probably take about 3 hrs. to cook it. Also, if you have an injector, try injecting it with some Ken's Honey Terraki Sauce. Make sure you don't use any brand …
  • Jackbythesea, 375 would be way to much heat. I'd try 275, check the temperature about an hour before you're ready. If you need to crank it up to 325-350 do it then. You should be ok.
  • RRP, thanks for the quick replies, guys. That really makes me feel better. I have an Oklahoma Joe smoker now, weighs 450 pounds and is just too heavy although I like it. This Egg sounds great and I look forward to using it!
  • BajaTom, Do you go to the Trader Joe's in Clayton or Chesterfield? I looked in Chesterfield yesterday and couldn't find them. Jingles
  • Ron Costello, Paint thinner.
  • bburd, A thermopen - can't live without it!
  • steve , I haven't tried it but I have been thinking about it. I'm not a fan of taking my egg to 700+ degrees. If you try it let me know.[p]Charlie
  • Arkansas Egghound, Don't believe the 200 degree meat temperature for a flat. I pulled one at 185 and it was way over cooked. Sunday I cooked a flat to 158 internal - it was much better. 5.5 pounds took about 9.5 hours.[p]What internal temperature…
  • Aleingone, Wash it in paint thinner - the grease comes off easily.
  • JDB, JUST TO LET YOU KNOW I DID START AT 6AM. BECAUSE OF THE HIGH WINDS WE HAD MONDAY IN GRAND RAPIDS MICH. I HAD A HARD TIME TO KEEP THE TEMP AT 225, IT KEPT GOING UP TO 250-275. THE HAM WAS 173 AT 4PM. I RAPED IT IN FOIL AND WAS ABLE TO GET TEMP …
  • Prof Dan, IS THAT AT TOTAL 4 HOUR COOK OR 6 HOUR. I DID THE 250 INDIRECT, FLIPPING AFTER 1 HOUR. NEXT 2 HOURS SAUCE AND IN FOIL. VERY TENDER AND FALL OF BONE GOOD. THE NEXT TIME I WILL USE gfw'S WAY. I AM NEW TO THIS STE, AND NEW TO EGGING. I HAVE …
  • JDB, Thank you for your help. It sound like with ham or any other type of meat, it takes 1 1/2 to to 2 hours per pound at 200 to 225 deg. does this sound correct?
  • While on the topic of BGE tables, how do you cut the round hole for the egg to sit in? Come spring I'll be building a table to hold a large and medium egg.
  • Tom, Thanks for the info. I'll most likely go with a med or a Lg (if I go with an egg). Another question, when cooking the quick greasy foods (chicken, burgers) I'm sure there is a lot of dripping. On a conventional cooker the grease usually bur…
  • one feral kat,[p]Thanks for the advise. I'll give it a try. The ribs turned out great anyway, so this thing must be pretty easy for me to be successful at bbq. My daddy convinced me growing up that you were supposed to scrape the black stuff off …
  • Tim M,[p]Thanks for your help. Perhaps you're right about the alignment. I thought I had it right. I had the large outside piece positioned correctly, but I may not have had the very top piece (that rotates to cover up the holes) placed right so …
