  • RhumAndJerk,[p]180*? I've never taken a turkey breast past 165*. After I take it off the Egg I wrap it in foil and the temp normally rises to near 170*. [p]Just a matter of personal taste, I've always found 180* too much. Is 180* every dry for y…
  • Brent,[p]If you change the water you keep it in whenever you use it, it should last easily a week. If longer just slice and freeze.[p]PP
  • Bama Fire,[p]I've smoked extra firm tofu with the same method I use for making jerky. [p]First take your block(s) of tofu and slice it into 1/4 inch thick slices. Then lay out paper towels and place the tofu slices on it in a single layer. Put an…
  • Nature Boy,[p]I had the fire going in the Egg around 10pm. The temp seemed to stop at 225* around 11:30pm but it was probably slowly still going up. If I had stayed up a little later I could have caught it long before it reached 300*.[p]Thanks for…
  • MikeO,[p]Now that I did not know. Very interesting. I normally clean all the excess ash out before I start but insulating the bottom does sound like a good idea.[p]thanx PP
  • Nature Boy,[p]I wonder if I could position by electric starter to do the same thing. Or maybe put the starter in the middle of lump while I fill it up. I'll have to play around with it.[p]Thanks for the input PP
  • MickeyT.,[p]That is an awesome setup! I must try it.[p]PP
  • RhumAndJerk,[p]Oh man. Thanks a bunch![p]TEQUILA!!!!!![p]I love this recipe
  • Jimbo,[p]Hey, I use that brine too. Good stuff. Have you tried the bread pudding from that episode? I must say it is excellent too.[p]PP
  • Nature Boy,[p]I don't know if you ever watch the Food Network or not but this recipe was featured recently. By the end of the show, my mouth was watering.[p],1724,13891,00.html[p]PP
  • Bamabob,[p]The Egg makes wonderful smoked turkey legs. I normally brine (1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup salt, 1/2 gallon of water) the legs for around an hour or so. I do this a day before just for convenience. You could do it the day of with no problem.…
  • Cat and Everyone who responded,[p]Thanks for the advise guys.[p]I use the electric starter for 8 - 10 minutes. Normally I see nice red coals around the starter when I take it out.[p]I'm going to try to bring up the heat slowly with the vents barely…
  • Fireball,[p]Pretty darn close. I think the Egg's legs turned out better but it can't provide me with a jousting tourney [p]The BGE really did an good job duplicating that rich smokey flavor and wonderful color. I'm going to try a brine next time I…
  • Lord Fireball,[p]I attend the Ren Fest near Charlotte, NC since I live near there. Thanks for all the tips. I look forward to hoisting a leg with a grand Huzzah![p]Good Feasting Milord! PP
