Hop on down to your nearest EGG dealer this week to pick up some Easter EGGcessories! Here are a few that may be useful for Easter, the V-rack, electric charcoal lighter and flexible skewers! Now that Spring is in the air, it's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

  • Shelby, Nearly everytime I have someone over, they are getting their taste of BGE for first time. The guests yesterday told my wife during the cook that they did not like pork---they are hooked. The sleeting is a light little pelting, hope it doe…
  • Boccie, Chili is definately the call for today---sleeting here in Biloxi. What was that pot you Egged the chili in? Ceramic? Metal? Wife will not allow me to use her indoor stuff so I have been suffering through with throw away aluminum pans---no…
  • KHawk, What a great meal (or three)you have soon come. I've use a marinade with 1/2 cup red wine, 1/2 c olive oil, 1/4c Dales steak seasoning. And a rub with lemon pepper and garlic salt. I seared 600 deg for 6 min each side, then temp to 400, unt…
  • mark, After frying, put into swimming sauce for 20min to 6 hrs---whenever ready to cook. After cooking on BGE either dunk 'em again or use as a dipping sauce---the latter will enable guests to gauge how hot they want. They are great---look great,…
  • mark, Here is an option: I have done these 4-5 times and vary the cayenne pepper depending who my guest are.... I like 'em hot. I also like 'em with no breading. I have combined several recipes by trail and error---do not know who to give credit…
  • The Naked Whiz, It is true that there need be no reason for a season for Egging, just approaching my first autumn with BGE out back. Sports, BBQ and of course beer enhance eachother---when Q'ing, I like sports and of course beer. When watching spor…
  • Tom, Until 4 this am I also had never tackled the brisket. I have done Boston Butts and they kept getting better and better, so I stayed on that pig. Wanted to venture out of the barn and into the pasture----am using Nature Boy's Eggfest 2000 recip…

  • Schneid, Thanks for all the advice. Sounds like I mistreated the piece of beef---I was thinking of a med. rare prime or good roast, not along the lines of a pulled pork. I only had a 2 lb piece of meat and was worried to over cook: oh, the irony. I…
  • Tom Kowalski, Since I got mine in 11/01 I have used it 3-5 times a week. It is fun, easy, addicting. The only use that I have for my gas grill and Weber is to put firebricks and soaking chips on while I am Egging. Several friends, who were skepti…
  • LumpyBob, Day late and a dollar short for your Prime, but I too pondered the time to Egg a Prime Rib. I used advice from Tim M.'s and Gfw's wegsite (linked to from BGE Main page)on mine yesterday---covered in a rub and meat tenderizer, wrapped tigh…
  • Mop, I have been tossing everything that does not move on my new BGE---feel ready to consider a Butt. What poundage did you use? Did you have to add more charcoal and/or wood chips over the 17 hour cook? Did you stay close to egg through the cook …
  • Rob Rhodes, Gentleman Jim posed a question I was fixin' to, as by Xmas turkey likely got blackened (yet moist and tasty) by not using cooking bricks. Thanks for the answer Rob. It is one BGE adventure.....
  • KennyG, Thanks for the advice, water is getting to 212 right now. "Measure twice, cut once"---only works with a proper yardstick.....

  • Nature Boy, Thanks for the info regarding fire bricks and their protection from the heat. The shoes that I used did nothing to layer from the direct heat---just elevated the V-rack. I thought the purpose was only to elevate the drippings so as not …
  • KennyG, In regard to the dome gauges, are they accurate or is the boiling water test a must? Reason I ask is that my cooking times are shorter than expected and I had a black turkey....

  • Tim M, The skin separtation may indeed be the culprit---in my experiment of removing half of the skin, the other half did become separated as I rubbed underneath. I also wonder if I was too liberal with my olive oil massage. For set up, I used the…
  • I dig this forum---bought an "egg" three days ago for the Christmas bird and appreciate the forum's input. I did have an incident with the creation of my BGE. I put the top dome into the auto lock hing with curiosity---the dome is heavy, the hinge…
