  • Good find! Gosh, if one timed it right, one could go to Waldorf for the Eggfest and hit Maryland Select Hardwoods in La Plata while the food is still cooking . . . .
  • Its been 20 years since I bought there, but there used to be a specialty wood supplier in the Annapolis (or at least Anne Arundel County) area - I'd recognize the name but don't recall it off-hand. There is also Smoot Lumber in Northern Virginia - …
  • We had an extensive discussion on finan haddie several years ago on the forum - you might be able to search the archives. There were several versions offered by forum members. Finan haddie is really a Scots dish and came to New England through t…
  • Also not a plumber but I've seen rumbling and gurgling when a sewer line into which the toilet is flushed has a clog in it - that can back up and cause rumbling, probably from air being trapped and trying to escape.
  • I've used solar lights and I've used LED lights but never the combination. I don't know your location but solar lights must have good direct sunlight to recharge - if they are shaded too much they simply won't provide much light for very long. LED…
  • When you mention "lesson," do you mean in selecting a knife or using one? If the latter, many places that offer cooking lessons also have sessions on knife skills - it can be a good investment. I have 35 year old carbon steel French and German k…
  • Is a Canuck the same as a Newfie? [Hey, I got a cousin in NB who will not stop sending me all those lousy Newfie jokes . . .]
  • I usually use a sharp knife and just slice the bag but, yes, there is a technique to open any of those bags having a thread. You have to find the correct thread to pull but once you do, the thread comes out in one easy pull and the piece of bag ove…
  • Looking good! I'm surprised no one has mentioned it yet, so I will . . . recommend putting the green feet under the Egg even with the paver there - it will avoid any chance of heat transfer through the paver to the table. This issue came up jus…
  • I've used both MAPP and propane and it doesn't seem to make much difference in how quickly the lump gets going. I'm amazed if your Lowe's doesn't sell MAPP, however - mine does. And my igniter (not your device but a short torch with igniter) was p…
  • My large does not have a screen and after stepping on a hot coal in my bare feet a couple years ago, I looked forward to the introduction of the screen. I bought my medium shortly after and thought it'd be a big improvement. In practice, however…
  • What the heck did they want to kill the bacteria for? Musta been the durn USDA on their case even back then!
  • I agree with those who suggest soaking overnight - that usually loosens all but the worst. But you might also consider, prior to the cook, giving it a good spray of PAM or some other oil - I usually do it outside over the grass because so much miss…
  • The only thing better is . . . haggis :laugh:
  • I agree with all the other comments but I'd like to make note of one fact: I believe it is Federal regulation that no consumer is obligated to "register" a product to obtain coverage by a warranty. If BGE, or any other firm, offers a standard warr…
  • I've got family in the area but I suspect that doesn't count . . .
  • I use a large Lodge dutch oven on the Egg and now my wife now refuses to use it for her cooking. She says that the last time she used it inside to cook mussels they ended up with a very unpleasant smoky flavor. Apparently the seasoning didn't prev…
  • Interesting product. Is there any chance of the knives inadvertently hitting each other? I bought a bunch of plastic guards for my good knives (Shun, Global, etc.) - black flexible plastic from the local "Sur la Table" that you slip over the bl…
  • Pleased, I'm sure. I'd forgotten those other issues. Yup, the transmitter switch is a real nuisance -- its behind the battery door which is underneath the removable hook/stand. And its correct that if the signal is lost, the receiver shows the l…
  • I've had that model for several years and use it regularly but my experience with the signal is not as positive. Even with new batteries it often won't reach 40 feet through brick and block walls. (The issue has been much discussed on many forums,…
  • I hope the same but . . . The owner of the Baltimore Orioles, Peter Angelos (or whatever,) also got his wealth by destroying any company that had anything to do, no matter how remotely, with asbestos. And like those companies, he continues his t…
  • And at one time in my life I worked in an plant producing asbestos-cement products. I carried 80 pound bags of asbestos on my shoulders to a storage room, often slipped off to take naps on top of the bags, and dumped the bags into a huge mix master…
  • And where in Baltimore might it be found?
  • The teams are so good and the kids are so unpredictable that anything can happen in the ACC. A couple years back my Duke professor bro-in-law didn't speak to me for a week after he treated my spouse (a UMd fan) and myself to his tickets to see the…
  • Thirdeye is pretty much on target. I've done several and although they don't always cook the same, they're always good. For Xmas she bought a 10.5#, 5 bone prime for five of us - I cut off nearly 4 inches (3 bones) of the 11 inch length for later …
  • Gosh, I hope there's no lead in that green paint or the Feds won't let you keep it!
  • First, I presume you cooked the turkey at something like 325-350 degrees - that uses far more lump than a long cook at 250 degrees. I think Mad Max mentions in his manual on turkeys that he just barely gets seven hours from a full load of lump. …
  • The 1520 is the one with two angles, right? I was looking at it but couldn't quite justify the price - multi-purpose tools so often disappoint because they don't do any of their functions really well (Leatherman knives, Shopsmith tools, etc.) Pleas…
  • at 350 degrees (at the cooking level) and cooking indirect, you should expect 45 minutes minimum for almost any size tenderloin. The important point is that all of them are very similar in diameter so the length isn't particularly relavant. A full…
  • Be careful, you'll shoot your eye out!
