  • Hi!  I usually cook brisket shooting for about 200-250, so you were higher, but no worries.  I'd go by the temp and take it off the grill and wrap it in foil to rest.  Put it in an old cooler or wrapped with old towels to keep the heat in.    I d…
  • Hey now- To limit the flying ash and hot charcoal handling, I light my medium with newspaper directly in the bottom of the Egg (through the bottom vent). Usually it takes 2-3 sheets of newspaper, inserted and lit one at a time with the slide gat…
  • I thought I was the only one... I decided that bun offs are over-rated. Thanks!
  • After a successful spatchcocked chicken, I opened the vents to cook off the grill a bit before shutting down and cooling off. When I took the food in, it looked so good, we started in on it right away. After eating our fill, I went outside and fou…
  • Hey- sorry we missed th PA Eggfest last year. Hope to see you this year in Hatfield! Chris
  • My neighbor Steve had one in Atlanta, and he never stopped talking about it! My wife bought me a small at a yard sale in 1998. When we move to PHL from ATL, I traded in the small for a medium and a nest in winter of 2001. I've been lurking sinc…
  • I believe my retired father got the design for his medium table from Naked Whiz as well. It worked out so well, he went ahead and built me one too! Man, I guess he egg-ppreciates my cooking him into purchasing a green egg for the folks!
  • I had great results with apple wood on pork cooks- until I ran out. I'd like to get some more...
  • I store my daisy wheel inside the egg after each cook as well- no problems wth sticking since I used this great tip from the forum. Gasket? I ain't got no stinkin gasket!
  • Hey- thanks! Dad's been grilling for years, and while he may have just gotten his egg- I know from the questions he asks that they've done brisket, steaks, pork butt, burgers, etc. I bought him a turbo grate for christmas. He's serious enough…
  • James Wilson,[p]I was a pleasure meeting you and your clan- and an even bigger pleasure eating your fine egg-creations! Tell Herb I thought about the cobbler that I missed out on all the way home (I had to get the wife to work- as you know, Tony is…
  • GrillMan,[p]My family and I had a great time! Thanks to all who cooked/shared/and entertained my kids![p]CJ
  • Spaceman Spiff,[p]Very zen- I like it! WIth my turbograte all it takes is two pieces of newspaper and a match (three matches if it's windy!) The turkey last night worked fine...[p]CJ
  • BENTE- I use mine to smother the fire after cooking is done- and someone here suggested that I store the daisy wheel top inside the egg. So now I just put the wheel inside when the egg is hot, cap it with the broken ceramic top (reassembled and …
  • Well, I tweaked the door open to bring the temps back up (had gone down to about 160), and in 10 minutes the temps were back around 200. The fire hadn't gone out, I had just chocked the vents down a little too much! 11 hrs in...
  • Can we come at the last minute (Saturday)? What's the skinny for those of us who don't always plan ahead? Thanks!
