  • try 3/4 apple juice, 1/4 vinegar Have fun, Steve
  • You didn't mention if you have calibrated your dome thermometer. Mine was off by 15 or twenty degrees as delivered.... Have fun, Steve
  • I vote with clausenk, spatchcoked chichen is quick, pretty foolproof, and really uses the Egg to advantage. Have fun, Steve
  • Hi Tony, For steaks, chops, chicken etc you'll be fine without a thermometer. On a big piece of meat, though, it's if nothing else reassuring to watch the dial spin. Depending on what you're cooking, the internal temperature ranges from being a r…
  • Our local Whole Foods has turbinado in the bulk foods section, about a buck a pound as I remember. It's a light brown sugar (most but not all molasses removed). The stuff at Whole Foods is pretty large grain... Have fun, Steve
  • Hi Howard, Try Have fun, Steve
  • Foiling ribs is somewhat like pressure cooking...don't underestimate how fast it will take your ribs from not yet cooked to a less than heroic fate.... Have fun, Steve

  • Unless the cut is popular in your area (it's not here in northern Colo) you WILL have to go to someone who actually cuts meat, rather than a grocery that just puts what they get pre cut out into their cold case. Butchers that have access to the top…
  • It's a top blade steak, cut from the chuck. It's a clever extraction of quality steak from a $1.59 a lb part of the steer. Generally, any recipe that works for flank steak should work - cook it hot, not past medium rare. Have fun, Steve
  • Check with your chosen transportation company before committing to the dry ice idea...there are often severe restrictions as to the amount of dry ice you can use on air transport. Insulation is the key to successful shipping. Have fun, Steve
  • I attended the Lazy L Minifest as a guest and observer, and just want to thank Chuck and his wife for their graciousness. Even though some rooms in their basement were suffering water damage from a couple of days of extrordinary rain and hail, they…
