Well! Don't keep us in suspense, what did all of the outstanding responses due besides make you salivate! Also, I don't think anyone mentioned bread, deserts, casseroles, meatloaf, chile, well you get the point.
Kris in FL,
I use an electric starter I found at the local Wally Mart or Lowes. I am not a big fan of cubes and stuff, the torch method pops the charcoal to much for my taste, and the Green Heat starter works ok, but I am to cheap to always go out …
If my memory serves correct, I put several blocks in the hole to prevent the egg from going all the way in. I was then able to manage the egg from the inside of the table by myself, sort of 'step' it down block by block until it was a the de…
What about the slightly charred flavor you get after grilling at higher temps? I have done lower with burgers before as well, but only because I couldn't get the temp up!
Definitely allows for smokier flavor.
I use a cheap stoneware pizza dish you can pick up at local food stores. This seems to work pretty good sitting on the grid, and then I use a cheap stainless grid raised with stainless carriage bolts. Cobble-job special! (it works pret…
mad max beyond eggdome,
May be a bit late with this one, but I replaced one not to long ago as well. I took a large screwdriver and scraped the big stuff. I took a propane torch, and a putty knife and as the leftovers got gummy, the putty knife cle…
Are you using the farm raised stuff you buy in the store? I had the same experience this weekend, and my theory is that it might be fattier than the fresh caught variety. I am probably wrong, but it sounds good anyway..

A couple of things about the chiminea. One, don't leave it out in extremely cold weather. We live in Michigan, and left ours out last year. There are now cracks everywhere, and it will probably be on the deck before spring.
See if t…
I found an exhaust hood from a home remodeling site, and installed it my garage (MI). I need to raise my egg up a bit, but I think it will work fairly well. Now we should be able to sit in the garage, q, play cards, and drink barley pop…
go to the local wally-mart (or similar) and pickup a cheap stoneware pizza dish, and in the grilling department they usually have various sizes of fire bricks. You shouldn't spend over $25 for the setup. The stoneware is nice, because it helps…
Cook 'em direct. I think I did mine at about 350'ish the last time I did them on the egg. When the bacon is done, the abt's are done. I managed to burn a few New Year's Eve (something about a drink called Yucca?)and they still went faster…
Have you, or anyone else for that matter, tried using a FoodSaver for marinading purposes? I am not quite sure how to do liquids in a bag.
The Kenmore version went for $30 off yesterday, so we bought one.
