We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

  • Wow! I think I just seen an online case of mass hysteria! I think caliking has had a serious online tantrum. "I used to like  . . . " and now that someone doesn't respond the way you expect you end up throwing a big ol' hissy fit. Instead of being…
  • HDmstng said: I recently emailed WG about purchasing a pallet (hoping to get a group by together with some fellow Eggers in my area since Ace stopped selling) and they informed me there was an issue with their supplier and current batch, inco…
  • NewEnglandEgger said: So...I am into the 3rd bag of the Wicked Good Weekend Warrior, and I am starting to get suspicious. Typically, this brand is FULL of really big chunks (think tree limbs). So far with these bags, I am seeing a lot of go…
  • Mickey said: I always liked Stike on both forums. Wish he was back as well. You liked him?! He's found a new hobby. Working. I'm hoping to see him in the spring when Fred's Franks reopens. That is, if his wife will let him out of his o…
  • only after a really hard work out at the gym.
  • SkinnyV said: I like it but harder to light that's for sure... kind of annoying actually. Wicked Good is a little hard to light until you get the hang of it. If you're in a rush and, it seems everyone is these days, use a MAPP torch but,…
  • Been to the NH Fest and they do one heck of a job. Nice staff working to help all of their guests. Good set up area. Really nice day as long as Little Steven doesn't show up and haunt people! hehehehe
  • fish where's the chowdah?
  • hapster said: Something like a gallon paint can as a starter chimney, get some small pieces of lump going, a few chunks of smoke wood on top, and place it down on the fire grate with the bottom vent wide open. Isn't the goal low temp smok…
  • I found after I got up to (for me) a whopping 227 that avoiding white foods, smaller portions, eating slowly and really chewing my food, a couple of "in between" snacks - an orange, a few peanuts will do. You just have to keep your metabolism crank…
  • I've been using WG for almost as long as I've had my Egg, 12 years. I'm one of those fortunate people that enjoyed WG Competition Blend. You couldn't beat that stuff with a stick! When WG had to move to the Weekend Warrior blend I squirreled as m…
  • speaking of Bomba my little friend, WTF happened? I know all about Maple Leaf and it's your fault. Everyone says so including your friends Fidel and Zip. And, that's not all they say . . .
  • Grillin_G_Ma said: I poured Royal Oak lump into my LBGE up to the line and cooked two 4 lb pork butts at 250 degrees. I took the butts off after the charcoal had been burning for 8 hours and thought I would increase the temp to 400 and grill…
  • The Cen-Tex Smoker said: michigan_jason said: Were they nice and crispy? That is always my biggest concern. I typically get my turkey fryer out and heat the peanut oil and drop them in there like that, then toss in my bdubs sauce. Howe…

  • My assumption is you're talking about the cooling grate/grill. I've had mine for 5 or 6 years and it's never been seasoned even in the beginning. I went over to the local welding supply store and bought a $5 stainless steel welders brush and use it…
  • lump is close to pure carbon. No matter haw long it sits in your shed or cellar it ain't gonna go bad.
  • Go take a look at thirdeye's site and scroll down till you see the "wiggle stick". Had one for years. And, on your way down you'll see another interesting tool. Stop and take a look. had one of those for several years too.
  • All I can ask is, what would stike say?
  • zip, he's given up his singing and percussion career. Giving it up left him scared and alone. He enjoyed his time with you, Fidel and the Canuck gnome getting all dressed up and drinking beer but, since you 'fellas' don't do that any more stike ha…
  • Ya know Steven, I miss you. stike misses you. Wait! Young gun? Yes, that's me! Young gun. Wait till I tell my wife. She'll be overwhelmed to know I'm still a young gun. Little Steven said . . .
  • Wow! What a pleasant surprise to see you posting here, or, anywhere for that matter. The first time I met you at Waldorf they were holding it at the VFW ('98 or '99 if I remember correctly) and there weren't a whole lot of people in those days mayb…
  • Jesus, is there any common sense at all on this forum? Is there anything but a bunch of whiny little enabled children? At this point I would be willing to bet that in six months time this place will have dissolved into just another pissing conte…
  • I just spent a few minutes reading through this stupid thread and I'm convinced most of you have nothing better to do than bitch, moan and piss at each other. Sorry you cut your finger. Get a damned file and file down the offending piece of metal!…
  • Dive in! You'll never know until you try. Yes, the large can cook more than 2 butts.
  • I was using vegetable or canola oil with paper towels. I found that the egg would light pretty well if I rolled up two towels into loose cigars, added some oil, then put them down on top of the lump in an X.  I lit all four ends then and let the eg…
  • is that  stike on the front cover :D I think Rod and Little Steven said he had a red dress one time.
  • Used to be in the marine business and I've seen a lot of charcoal grills on fiberglass boats and, I've also seen a few boat fires resulting from charcoal grills. Fiberglass burns HOT and FAST. I saw a bot in an anchorage one night burn to the waterl…
  • it's the truth.  i don't know how the human species has made it this far apparently not knowing how to eat.  thank god we were born in a period where we have people writing books that can teach us how to consume food properly without either starving…
  • Have one that I got about three years ago. Wouldn't part with it for any amount. More exact temperature control that with the standard slide but, it has some quirks. I use Wicked Good Weekend Warrior almost exclusively but I have a stash of Compet…
