  • Bill Ellis,[p]For my BGE table I used one coat of Olympic semi-transparent deck stain followed by three coats of Minwax Helmsman Spar Urethane. It's been out in the weather now for about two months and has held up well, although I also use BGE cove…
  • Toy Man, I have some small 2"X 2" ceramic tiles that I had left over from our kitchen backsplash that I used under the egg. The tiles are about 1/4 inch thick. I don't remember getting ceramic feet with my egg. Is 1/4 inch enough space to preven…
  • Sandbagger, I gave the egg a good cleaning while I had it apart prior to its move into the table. It normally didn't look that good and of course the table hasn't had any use yet so it is also looking like new.[p]It was easier to move once I had i…
  • thirdeye, That's exactly what I've been using it for since I purchased the BGE. I still use the gasser occasionally if I'm looking to cook a quick hot dog but that is the extent of cooking that the propane cooker sees.
  • ronbeaux, Yeah, that's a small tractor in the background, a Kubota BX2200. I do have a front end loader for the Kubota which I thought I could use once snow season is over to help lift the egg into the table. My only concern is whatever strapping…
  • Vegas Taco,[p]The table was $297.00 through my local BGE dealer. I could have purchased it online for about $50.00 less with free shipping but I think it's important to spend my money locally when I can and keep my BGE dealer in business.[p]I also …
  • Midnight Smoker,[p]Here is a pic of a 7.68 pound roast that I did last Sunday as a pre-holiday test. Seared at 550-600 for 10 minutes and remainder cooked at 325-350 indirect for 2 hours 40 minutes, pulled at 130 internal, let rest for 20 minutes. …
  • Howard,[p]The bone portion of the roast was not cut all the way through so even though the twine didn't survive the bones still stayed attached to the roast. Also, after the sear I cooked the roast with the ribs down for the remainder so losing the…
  • Here is a pic of my wife and daughter making pierogies last year that might help show thickness and size of dough before they are filled.[p]
  • guava wood,[p]Let me know how they came out. Have you ever made these before? I would imagine pierogies are hard to come by in Hawaii.[p]Mike
  • guava wood,[p]Sorry I just posted recipes but didn't realize you needed more input.[p]Once dough is complete cut into about 3/12 inch diameter circles. Place about several tablespoons of filling on dough and then pull dough over filling and seal ed…
  • Car Wash Mike,[p]The roast was boned and tied by the butcher. The rib bones are cut and then retied to the roast. Supposedly leaving the bones on creates added flavor. It also makes for easier cutting once finished since bones can be easily remov…
  • guava wood,[p]Here is our pierogi dough recipe and the recipes for cabbage filling and cheese filling. These recipes were handed down from my mother who used to make pierogies with her mom who came from Poland about 100 years ago. We've already te…
  • AZRP, Wow, I wouldn't have expected it to climb another 15 degrees after it was pulled.[p]I will post pics this Sunday and keep track of temps it was cooked at.[p]Thanks again for all the advice. [p]I didn't get to do a turkey for Thanksgiving sin…
  • mad max beyond eggdome,[p]Sounds good, I will try this weekend cooking to 135 internal let it rest and see how it comes out. Certainly don't want to overcook it.[p]I also figured I could put some individual slices back on the fire if someone prefe…
  • Thanks for the advice. It sounds like I should expect roughly 1.75 to 2 hours for two 7 pound roasts cooked side by side for medium rare.[p]Our local supermarket, Big Y, has black angus semi-boneless rib roasts this week for $5.99/lb. therefore we …
  • Just put on a Beer Can Chicken to be used in a chicken pot pie for tonight. Chicken enjoying this beautiful New England fall morning before I closed the lid. Had our first frost this morning, brrr.[p]Will be cooking a pork butt overnight tonig…
  • Drivr, My family ate at this restaurant located in the Polynesian Resort. While not excactly BBQ, the food there is cooked over an open wood fire and was very good in my opinion.[p]After eating there I thought: "Man I really want to be able to co…
  • Ed,[p]I purchased my large BGE about two months ago. Since that time I have only fired up my gas grill once to cook hot dogs which to me aren't all that improved cooking on the BGE. My gas grill was used so infrequently after the BGE purchase that…
  • mule, Yes it was a great 4th. Perfect weather: mid 80s low humidity, a pool full of kids, awesome Egg food, and capped off with some fireworks (shhhhh, they are still illegal here in MA) at night.
  • Essex County, I am located in a small country town located in the western part of the state known as Belchertown located between Amherst and Springfield, MA[p]Thanks for the input, it looks like I could go either way with soaking or not soaking the…
