  • J Appledog,[p]Just be sure to use copious amounts of Tony's and day-b-awright!
  • Man it has been awhile, I left England back in 2000, spent a couple of years in the Benelux and ended up in Louisiana to finish out the world tour.[p] Sho nuff, life is good!
  • Steve-O,[p]I may be wrong here, but aren't DiGiorno's pizza's supposed to be put in a cold oven with out the pre-heat?[p]If you are making regular pizza on the egg with a plate setter and pizza stone, I know from personal experience that the last fo…
  • Eric Mertens,[p]It's simple, just join the US Air Force, get stationed in England, then deploy to Las Vegas with a KC-135 air refueling tanker with plenty of cargo space. Go to BBQ Galore and then bring it back........[p]or, offer me an absurd amoun…
  • Marv ,[p] That's the propaganda us Iowans put out to keep the good beef in-state! [p]Some may call us idoits, but at least we're well fed![p] TT
  • Franco,[p]I'm posted in Germany now, and am in OKC with NATO. Might be looking to get a small to take back with me.[p] Cheers,[p]TT
  • C~W,[p]Thanks for the help, but Momma got to the corn (cleaned em) before I could prep them.[p]I'll try the butter in the husk method next time![p] TT
  • LDA,[p]With the notorious cracked fireboxes and cracked grates, I wonder why BGE doesn't manufacture them with some sort of mini-rebar in them?[p]Things that make you go hummmmm![p] TT
  • RhumAndJerk,[p]- your BGE gets vaccumed more than your car - your wife asks why, and you just mumble "it's a BGE thing, you wouldn't understand" - a Large and a Mini just aren't enough, you feel the need to "adopt" a Small and or a Medium[p][p]TT
  • kjed,[p]My Large Egg and Mini have accumulated over 6,000 miles each via Jet Propelled Aerospace Vehicles.[p]The Large was on a miltary plane, so the details remain highly classified!!! But the Little Guy was packed away in a Rubbermaid Action Packe…
  • RhumAndJerk,[p]I remember asking the meat dept guy at the commissary for skirt steak saying something about making fajitas. price was $1.98 a pound. Then suddenly a week later it was labeled "fajita steak" and was 3.99 a pound. [p]I always make twic…
  • Bob,[p]Sorry to inform you that there aren't any BGE dealers in the UK, I brought a large back from the states on a USAF jet, and a mini was packed up in a Rubbermaid action packer and checked as luggage (made the trip nicely I might add) As far as…
  • Bud Jones, I don't have the nest but did notice two holes one each side when I was installing my auto-lock band, I believe you need to take the lower band off and put the mounting screws through the inside of the band pointing out, don't forget whe…
  • Stuart,[p]I've done a couple of deep dish pizzers, always after the regular ones are taken care of. This one sat in the egg for about 25 minutes the temp started out around 500 and towards the end was down around 400 or so. The deep dish is from…

  • Char-Woody,[p]I wonder if it's their clearance sale. I saw some pretty bad news about BBQ dot BOMB the other day. [p]good ready if you're into that sort of thing[p]TT[p] [ul][li]BBQ.com [/ul]
  • Char-Woody,[p]All's good on the East Anglian front, only 49 days left. They're letting me out of the cage for a week of Pizza and Sun. The wife and kid's are headed to Japan for a couple of months to visit family and I'll meet them in Germany.[p]I'…
  • Char-Woody,[p]You da MAN! Now you've got me thinking. Your problem is that you probably weren't using "Swanky Eyetalian" Terra Cotta pots. I'm off to Sicily for a week of honest to god Eyetalian Pizza, this time the digital camera's going out to ea…
  • ChAr-WoOdY,[p]What's goin on? I drop in and see that you're about to make me famous? Only 51 days left in the UK and I'll be looking for a new handle. I'm moving on to a new aircraft and a posting with some of our NATO allies. Maybe I can get a few …
  • Char-Woody,[p]No problemo C~W. I do beleive the proper verbage is Swanky Eyetalian Terra Cotta. They work rather well for getting the stone up off the grill but don't provide as much heat sink as honest to god fire bricks. [p]One thing that sur…
  • here's the one that bought the farm,[p]and to top it off it appears that the stone is flying the bird at me![p] TT
  • Char-Woody,[p]I'm going to salvage as much of the dead seal as I can mostly from the dome side, and press on. I guess I didn't clean the dome as well as I thought?[p] TT[p][p]
  • Spin,[p]Thanks for the encouragement, I wasn't too worried about POP goes the fire box, it was already cracked in the front. Now it's probably just two halves. Seeing my new felt seal inches from the grill didn't do much for morale after a bad week.…
  • Tim M,[p]Good point Timmer, I did add some new lump but it wasn't chock full. I'll either have less lump next time or get some tongs that are three feet long and a welder's glove!![p]Thanks for the help[p] Tim
  • Nu-Guy,[p]I can't speak for the wine barrel chips, but I have used the tabasco chips and they impart a nice flavor. I've also found that they also help to give the fire a small kick in the arse when you need to boost the temp a bit![p]Try the Tabasc…
  • Smokin' Todd,[p]How much did the shipping cost you? It cost me $28.00 to get 50lbs sent to England. This was using the post office, if UPS is too expensive try Good Old Uncle Sugar's delivery service it will take longer but save you some duckets![p]…
  • Smokin' Todd,[p]Chill Brudda, it's worth the wait. I got two bags from them awhile back. 1 Oak 1 Mesquite, quality Lump. Try calling during normal hours (those not experiencing Egg withdrawl) Tell Genie that Tim from England says hey.[p]TT about to…
  • RhumAndJerk,[p]Oops, I fat fingered that one. Not yet, I've been without a heat source for awhile since the British stores don't carry lump during the winter. I just got six bags from the local True Value and will be making a trip to the post offi…
