  • Aussie_Hugh, I cook pizza at around 400 deg. on raised pizza stone. You might try a second pizza stone or/and do not pre heat your stone completly. I have found that 4 min. pre heat at 400 gives me a crust that is done at the same time as the top…

  • WudEyeDoo, I would do the direct cook. I have tried both techniques and found the flavor to be much better with the direct method.
  • RayS, Ray, I am given goose brests every year by my hunting buddies. They are tough to cook. I have had best luck by marinating the things in a oily marinade and then stuff with cream cheese and something like bacon or peppers. We call goose sky…
  • Bigsmoke, Just cut it in half. 2 four pounders will easily cook in 10 to 12 Hours.
  • WJS, I have had luck by placing Mr. egg in the passenger seat of my vehicle. Just set in the seat, wrap the seatbelt around and go. This does upset my passengers as the feel second class to the egg but, oh well....kurt
  • The Other Dave, These things are wonderfull. If you like things a little hot, add some habenero sauce to the creamcheese mixture. After pulling the seeds and ribs out of jalapeno's and then cooking them they loose most of there heat
  • Hammer, I do this quite often, make a great presentation if you just leave it on the plank. Soak plank in water at least 15 min. I prefer to take the skin off the salmon fillet. I think you get more flavor from the plank. Lay salmon on the plank,…
  • Dave's Not Here, Hats off to the birds. I'm from Green Bay, the game hurt to watch (was there) but the better team that night won. We did beef tenderloins for tailgate. Just can't imagine a better machine to cook with, especially in bad weather.…

  • Smokey, Bacon should be a food group and required at each meal!
  • Big K, When I think Lamb the flavors that come to mind are; Garlic, Kosher Salt, rosemary, oregano, cardamom... Usualy make a paste or marinade, Red wine vinegar for acid, little olive oil for lubricant. Cook to 130 temp and let rest 15 min. Di…

  • mollyshark, Best steakhouse steak I ever had was at Gene and Georgette's in Chicago. Have had the opportunity to eat at several high end ($) steakhouses. The advantage they have over our backyard is thay are able to get Prime beef and dry age it …

  • TomR, Moving the coals around in the egg won't work. You are trying to shield the food from direct heat. Easiest way is to place food on a rack of some kind over a aluminum drip pan. If you do not have a pan try several sheets of foil formed int…
  • Nature Boy, working late so keeing it simple. Ring bologna slit about half way through on entire length. Wrap in foil and put on 300deg egg. After about 6 min. open foil and balogna has opened up. Sprinkle minced garlic and pour some sweet hot mu…

  • Gordy, Last Nov. I cooked whole Prime Grade Rib-eyes three nights in a row. {long story} anyway, these hunks of meat were about 10 to 12 Lbs. each. My first thought was to treat them like big steaks. Sear high heat and dwell or roast untill 125 in…
  • one feral kat, I have always been of the opinion that a fork was somthing one used to keep others from peaking under the lid of my grill when in use. I have several issues with these tools, Why poke 2 holes in my meat to take its temp? Are the ti…
  • Mike B, The metal offset smokers can and do produce some excelent Q. The additional upright chamber gives you lots of capacity but, weather or not you use this chamber you still have to heat it every time you cook. This can make it difficult to h…
