  • Yeah, good advice. I can really see my kid touching all the funny big eggs. Perhaps Grandma can take him for the weekend, and the wife and I will get in some partying on 6th street. Sounds like a fun mini vacation. Thanks!
  • Podge, Welcome, I say this without it sounding like hyperbole, but your life will never be the same once you are an egghead.

  • Chuck/Tx,[p]Well I guess I'llhave to define my own! [p]Guru just ramped me up to 300, having some problems with it, thinking it might be defective.
  • JM3, holy cow those look juicy! Sadly, Mrs. Spin does not to eat anything on the bone...hence I've never made them. I've really got to bring her around. Have you ever shared your sauce recipe?
  • Spring Chicken, Yeah, he mentioned how it sort of evolved. I'm pretty sad as it is another year until the texas fest returns. I've never been to a proper fest so even a parking lot sounded like a great idea as I don't know any other eggers personal…
  • Spring Chicken, What is the second one? Bread pudding or breakfast casserole?
  • john,[p]Well god knows we need the rain here! I think it has been dry about 2 weeks.

  • Tiger Tony,[p]I try to limit to 2 times a week, as the wife is preggers and on a pregnancy diet. However, I have bought a little 12 inch BGE that will adorn he nursery. That being said..I'm suprised to hear that anyone tires of egg food! Are you mix…
  • john, sounds like you are getting the same crap I am getting in houston!

  • Midnight Smoker, yep, got my first egg after the wife heard me mumbling big green egg in my sleep
  • MoEggHed, meant to say 2 hours per pound
  • MoEggHed, I've only done one but the rule of thumb around here is about 2 hours per butt. I'd visit Naked Whiz's site as I used his directions and focused on 200 degrees and it came out awesome.[p] [ul][li]named whiz puled pork guide[/ul]
  • Edgar Fehnel, I believe naked whiz's website shows photos of when it is appropriate to start cooking without oversmoking the food. It may have been someone else but basically you do not want plumes of smoke coming from the top. Wait until it peter…

  • JKPALMER, Well, I live in houston so between humidity and everything else I do get mold after about 1 week of non use.[p]As mentioned by others I tend to get most on the grill and simply grill brush it off. I also formerly cooked mostly Trex steaks…
  • Illinifan, atomic buffalo turd...not kidding at all
  • darnoc, I was at academy and found a kingsford brand carcoal container that is basically a massive tupperware. The advertise you can put the whole bag in and make it waterproof. As I read that one should sort his lump I will start using it this wee…
