  • Thanks a lot! I knew it had to be something I was doing :( , cause it was working fine before. Thanks for all your help and tell you mom I said hello again. Thanks ron.
  • Thanks for your response, between you and the WMK, I think I got it!
  • WMK, You handled the complainer much better than I would have. If he/she is that dissatisified with this board then all I can say is good riddance! To jump right in and say all those things about the board, the product, the support and not being…
  • Go to the "Ugly brothers" website. They have a killer raspberry/chipotle recipe that is easy and I bet you would like it. Its won contests and its under the sauces recipes on their site. Do a Google for it, its worth it!. HTH, Ron.
  • I'll keep your secret! Hey, if its good and it works AND simple, I love it ! Thanks for sharing and I will look for it around here. But living in the snow belt (MI) we often resort to the internet or our travels to find the good stuff. Thanks, Ro…
  • Welcome to the club, I'm sure you will love it. Since no one else asked you, I will. What did you do to the turkey legs?? They look great and if you don't mind, would you share the recipe with us? Thanks and many happy cooks to you, Ron.
  • Sounds great Bobby-Q! I am interested in them and I hope you can put together some kind of deal for us. Thanks, Ron.
  • Glad to see you back! Your humor and your help to others added another dimension to this board and I certainly hope you don't stay away so long from now on. Later, Ron. p.s. I still love your story of how you got your handle , Its the best on…
    in Salmon ? Comment by ChefRD March 2008
  • Nope!, not always. In my many years of using the Egg, I have had this happen: I tried cooking a brisket fat side down ONCE, and it had the texture of a brand new cowboy boot. Wife was not happy. I cooked a country ham that I purchased in S…
  • Howdy, I've only found Royal Oak Lump at wal mart during the summer here in Mi. I'm not "sure" if it is the same as BGE, but it cooks just as well for me, so now that is my preferred charcoal, but if its not available, such as now in the winter, …
  • Good one Frank!, Thats a great post, and Spring, you know he gotcha on that one. :laugh: But I am sorry to hear about your accident, table saws scare the bejeebers out of me, cause they bite real hard, and with no warning!. I've seen it many time…
  • Pig Hut Ponce on Le Bone Ron
  • This sounds like a must try to me. I like all the stated ingredients. so how can I go wrong. thanks, Ron.
  • Yes I agree with you. I have enjoyed my Eggs for many years and I still don't have most of the new whiz bang things. Its not that I don't like them, its just that I don't want to buy them yet as I am satisfied with things as they are now. I control …
  • Hi Chris, I agree with you entirely. I still don't have a 'real' thermopen, nor a guru type thing, and for indirect cooks I use an old 9x12 pan lined with foil under a home made extended grid. You know, the kind with carriage bolts and washers. I…
  • Howdy Julie, long time no hear Hope all is well with you and Steve. I haven't really moved, still in MI full time, but we are wintering over in Bullhead City AZ. I got tired of the snow and cold weather. Whatever happened to the MI winterfest? D…
  • Hi, we've been to Vegas many times, (been 3 times this year ), but that doesn't make me an expert, but I do have some opinions. Never seen bette midler, probably never will. Check out the volcano at the Mirage. I have never seen a magic show …
  • Yep, I've known Chris for years, (since he started here), and he is a fine dude and his products are great also. He is a really upright person and by all means, get the Swamp Venom! Thats my favorite, I use it all the time on my pork and beef cooks.…
  • TT, I believe WessB explained it on the other board, and I think this is what I did. Do Not click on the profile tab that is green and on the left column on the screen. When you get on the forum message page in the center of the page there is…
  • I found it on the old forum.
  • Nature Boy, Chris, u have named your eggs EGGACTLY like mine! i can't believe it, we chose the exact same names! Oh well since we cook a like, a lot of times, I guess that is all right and we still can go on cooking. Have a great day dude and I'…
  • WessB, Could you explain that? I thought BGE and Royal oak was the same stuff in the bag? If it is not can you tell us what it is? thanks ron.
  • Eggin in Peoria, Here's a killer one,[p][p]I think its what you are looking for, and it is really good![p]later, ron.
  • Razorback, This has been a classic for years. Later, Ron. [ul][li]
  • WooDoggies, Thanks a lot dude, yep , most is alright with me except now I got a shoulder that is ripped!. Seeing the doc next week. I'll be in AZ next winter, I'm hoping you and chris can come to visit. It would be great! Later, Ron.
  • Caveman Smoker, Glad you liked them. ron.
  • The Naked Whiz, I've never had mine blown over by the wind in the 10 plus years I have owned it. It DID happen with some other charcoal units I owned previously, which made a mess. :([p]Later, ron.
  • ABT-less, My favorite is fresh (not cooked) HOT italian sausage and covered with Italian blend grated cheese. After cooking the "hot" sausage will not be very hot and neither will the pepper. I use this because I like it, and I can always run to t…
  • Matt, Yep, and if they disagree, call the mothership. later, ron.
  • Matt, I have one and it sits ON TOP of the fire ring, no wedging on nothing. The three legs will sit just fine on top of the fire ring, but they may seem a little close (it could possibly be made a little larger diameter, but the legs will not fi…
