  • JohnBBQVisitor,[p]You have a gracious plenty of good info below and don't let the cracked fireboxes scare you off. I can echo the comments that a cracked firebox in most cases will not render the Egg unusable. It is true you have a warranty, but t…
  • RG,[p]Redfish in Florida? Heck yea, we got 'em. You can only harvest only one each day that is between 18" and 27". They are not commercially available. As far as cooking them, grilled with a cajun style seasoning and butter works well. Usually…
  • Kelly Keefe,[p]As long as you put the fish on the left and the steak on the right side. Just kidding.... Yes, that sounds pretty good to me as long as I don't have to eat the salmon. [p]ashley
  • RG,[p]I've just copied this from another post below. I'll link the post so you can read the whole post as well. What you are wanting to accomplish is very doable.[p]HTH, Ashley[p] Something else to consider is say you want to grill some steaks a…
  • South O,[p]Very nice Matt! Keep up the good work![p]Ashley
  • Super T,[p]What piece of meat are you using for a "London Broil"? A piece of round like Charcola Mike or a piece of flank or plate? Charcoal Mike has a pretty good procedure that works well for the thicker round cuts, but flank just needs a good s…
  • David,[p]From what you have just described that was a indirect cook if the drip pan was between the fire and the meat. You can accomplish a indirect in a variety of other ways. Pizza stones, plate setters, pans filled with water or sand, or someth…

  • Tater,[p]I really don't use it for anything other than pizza and breads like pita and cuban. For most any other cook like low temp smoking the chimney is fully unrestricted as well as med temp cooks like chicken and high temp steak and chicken cook…

  • Mac in NC,[p]Freshwater Fishing guide, but I'm taking a break for a while. [p]ashley
    in Low? Comment by Zip June 2003
  • Jigm,[p]Bob and Kelly have offered up some soild advice and has you going down the right path, but I'll add my .02 as well. I know what it is like to want to just fire up the cooker and go, but learning how to control the fire is key. It is really…

  • The Naked Whiz,[p]A nylon web strap can easily be crafted into a cradle for a small using the two inch stuff. I think that is the size I used. A fellow at a saddle shop made it for me, but I had to take it over to his shop. He basically made a st…

  • Ryan,[p]The Cordierite stone I really like comes from
  • Ryan,[p]It is the opinion of several around here that a double stone setup is one of the best. Place a few washers between the two stones so there is a buffer of air between the stones. This will alleviate the hot spots considerably if not entirel…
  • Colleen Jones,[p] TRex has provided you a link to some good basic info that you builder should be able to use. In addition to that I simply searched the archives for "built-in" and found several threads. There is one below that is very nice, but …
  • YB,[p] Inverness-Crystal River area or Charleston, probably both in that order. I could wind up in DC or Northern Virginia for what I know right now. [p]I knew the lakes were down up there, but I didn't know Clarks Hill was down that much. Maybe…
  • PharmDawg,[p] Make sure the cooker has preheated and stabilized at the desired temp for 30 minutes or so. You may find that it is easier to get the top browned if you move the item higher in the dome. Consider raising the grid/grill with some fir…
  • Thanks Larry![p] I've been busy guiding and trying to decide where I'm going to be calling home. I've got a few weeks off, but not at a loss of stuff to do. It seems like I'm mowing the grass down here about every three of four days...That is if …
  • Carlyle,[p]A large would be logical considering the potential work load with kids and g-kids. It would also be a little easier for you desire for turkey and jerky. Some like myself like to cook pizza on the egg and the large is a great pizza and b…
  • Charcoal Mike,[p]That is a perfect picture. The way the rare center is surrounded by the seared exterior is really perfect.[p]Thanks for sharing it![p]Ashley
  • Hickory~Nut,[p]The best way to look at it is how the late Mr Bill Miller the original webmaster said it one time. We our guests in his house and there are some simple rules to abide by set forth by "The Miller House". Now you wouldn't go over to s…
  • Kevin,[p]In general charcoal is a added dimension to the flavor of the cooked item. To me I like the flavor of the charcoal, but I just recently added a Weber Gold C from Amazon to my flock of cookers....(a flock? maybe it is a gaggle? I don't kno…
  • char buddy,[p] I don't have the book but I did look at it at the B&N the other day. There is also a recipe for Huli Huli Chicken from our very own Carl Ward aka "Elder Ward". There was a write up with his comments as well if I remember correctly.…
  • Ryan,[p]To minimize the warmed over flavor (WOF) it helps to give the pork a little vinegar sauce before you package it. To reheat, I place in a bowl covered with plastic wrap in the microwave on medium-low power setting or 40% power. Punch a hole…
  • wil,[p]Are you serious? A piece of "Prime" rib roast shouldn't need a brine. Now a eye of the round or something like that I could see it, but not the prime rib.[p]Ashley
  • I forgot to add the springform pan needs to have the bottom removed. It does seem to help with airflow! :^)[p]Ashley
  • YB,[p]A springform cake pan works as well. I think a couple of us use them. Dylan comes to mind on this, but I'm not sure.[p]Ashley
  • Sandi,[p] I know what you mean about calling ahead about the children. We found out the hard way not once, but twice. The concern about the alcohol was of a religious nature. I don't have anything against it personally, but I know many that are …
  • METMAN,[p] A butt or picnic is really hard to screw up no matter what. Knowing how to cook a good brisket every time is a gift from God.......... I can cook a pretty good one, but there is no telling how many I screwed up to be able to get to thi…
  • Hickory~Nut,[p]What would you do if you liked cooking on ceramic and wanted to take one fishing, camping, tailgating, beach, ect without carrying a large and heavy cooker? A small egg seems to fit the bill pretty good for me as well as a mini, a WS…
  • Sandi,[p] One thing I would keep in mind for this cook is to keep it simple. When I had a real job my team at work would volunteer at the McDonald House. Most of these folks were not in the way for spicey or exotic food. A simple brined pork loi…
