  • Pharmeggist,[p]You can cook different things at different temperatures at the same time.[p]While your brisket is chugging along @ 225 or so for 12+ hours, you can Trex a steak for dinner. If you have three, you can grill vegetables at the same time…
  • Doug, Yes you can use a ceramic bean pot. The soda is to help remove the flatulence cause by the beans. It was in the orginal ricipe so I left it in. I am not sure if it works. I soak the beans overnight and cook them for about one hour before …
  • Gfw, Thank you for the praise. I agree they are great. I must thank Dorothy Thomas it was her recipe, I just made it eggable. Wait, according to Deanna House, a Cookbook author friend of mine, the changes makes it my recipe. Winter is here in M…
  • Wise One, Buy it a coach seat, maybe cheaper than shipping it. walrus
  • Joe, Welcome aboard. We can all learn from the other. the walrus
  • Doc Jerrah, You are so right everything out of the egg is better. I feel sory for those who are selling these "dinners". I won't be to hard on them, they have never enjoyed food from the BGE. We must all work a little harder to educate all of th…
  • egg6000 alias michaelh, Buy the fire bricks at a brick supplier (look under bricks in the yellow pages). I use "splits"--they are one half the thickness of full size fire bricks. Splits are 4 and 1/2 inches high, 9 inches wide and 1 and 1/2 inche…
  • Gfw, The only dumb question is the one you do not ask. I use a Great Northern Bean. You can use a Pea Bean, or any other dry bean, it all depends upon your taste. You could smoke them in the BGE and finish then off is the Crockpot. the walrus
  • Tim M, The teaspoon of baking soda is meant to cut down on the flatulence factor of the beans. The smoke was enough that the wife thought it was a little too smoky. I thought it was just about right. The wood used was hickory. the walrus
  • GeoM, Welcome, great to have you aboard, or should I say welcone to the egg carton. Sometimes humor is not easy on an empty stomach. I agree this forum is made up of a great group of people. the walrus
  • Gfw, Thanks for the info. From "in the dead of winter more lump may be needed" is it fair to say that adding lump is a simple task? Adding lump will not harm the low and slow cooking process will it? the walrus
  • DS, Thank you. the walrus
  • Gfw, Please make two next time. Better yet, I will try to make my own. I bet yours are better though.

  • Gfw, I did baked beans on the BEG yesterday. First attempt, a little dry, this OLD recipe needs a little tweaking.
  • Nature Boy, This Rump Roast was 3.04 pounds. The set up was indirect over frie bricks at an egg temperature of 300 to 350 degrees. It was done in about 3 hours to an internal temp. of 168 degrees. After which it was rested in foil for about 40 m…
  • Nature Boy, We are all related to the eggman. "I am the eggman, they are the eggmen, I am the walrus. Goo, Goo, Goo, Joob"! Re: John Lennon the walrus
