We hope you had a great Labor Day and are excited for the start of the NFL this week. If you’re not a sports fan, you can celebrate National Breakfast Month all September and National Cheese Pizza Day on September 5. We can’t wait to share some awesome fall recipes with you all! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

  • This is almost a trick question.Ocean, water/lake and Gulf Coast conditions are very different depending on where you live.I live on the Gulf Coast in Texas near the water but not on the water. Everything rusts...Not kidding...over night metal will …
  • Sounds like you got the results you wanted on your clean burn. If it's clean enough it worked. If not go longer next time. I also pull my temp gauge. all the ceramics have a life time warrantee, temp gauge does not. @ Zarcon  400-500 for an hour mig…

  • Biggreenpharmacist said: I might would try with a tri-tip or chuckie, but briskets are just too expensive and hard for me personally to throw into a batch of chili. Where are you from that brisket cost more than tri-tip?

  • Griffin said: I think I had that same rotisserie for my gas grill back in the day. How do you shut the lid? Why would you have to close the dome? Open fire type cook. Just close the lower vent to tame the fire a little.
  • That last photo of the tenderloin is fantastic...Damn I'm hungry.
  • That was some great Chili in Salado...I was stuffed and still had two bowls.Kelley and Bruce really go the extra mile for all their cooks. Their duck breast cooks are over the top as well with all their finishing touches and extras!

  • SmyrnaGA said: Nope, no screen for ember protection. I should just unscrew it and bend it to fit, but, I don't want to void the Warranty in case I mess it up or something. I have tweaked the lower vent on every ceramic grill I have owne…
  • Looks like a great, well built product.$50 @ Amazon.com and free shipping.I have used shop vac, air compressor and one of the small plug in inflatable bed pumps in the past.2 year warrantee at 50 bucks sounds fair...
  • Farbuck said: I got mine and can't twist off the stainless cylinder.   That sucker is stuck on like it was welded there.  The Anova works perfectly otherwise.   On the first unit the lower vent cap screwed on and off very easy and s…
  • I contacted Anova. They sent me a pre paid shipping label for return and shipped me a new one. Shaft on new one is straight but one of the 4 blades is also very bent. Is this the way it should be??? Just like photo in my first post.

  • hapster said: Looks good... How does the cherry influence the taste? That's the one thing I haven't tried, I like to just use the lunp and let the beef flavor stand on it's own. I wonder what a chuck of oak would do, since that's what I use f…
  • @ The Cen-Tex Smoker  wish I could take a torch. I have one of the small butane ones designed for SV searing. Work in a very large State of Texas Medical building. As much as I would like to push and risk the torch thing it's not worth loosing 20+ y…
  • njl said: Photo Egg said: I have read complaints about the Anova shutting down with little power spikes and other reviews of it just shutting down. I just picked one up on sale for $150 to use on small, quick cooks and to use at work. …
  • If it's mostly leg damage you can cut them off for a tri shaped pizza stone. I have 2 like the one below. One XL and one Large BGE. Will never buy another one. lol
  • Higher in the dome and a smaller gap between the cooking stone/steel and indirect piece will let air flow around the pie better.
  • Just because you temp was reading 500 does not mean you baking steel was not hotter. When you have the platesetter legs up and steel on the cooking grate at felt level so much hot air is rounding the platesetter and hitting the bottom of the baking …
  • As @Eggcelsior said, a little wrap of foil or thin layer for soap before you start is good.I just soak and scrub. Also great for Camp Bread/Rustic Bread.
  • I have read complaints about the Anova shutting down with little power spikes and other reviews of it just shutting down. I just picked one up on sale for $150 to use on small, quick cooks and to use at work. Hope I ended up with one of the god ones…
  • I own 2 of the KJ ceramics and several of the BGE. The Ceramic Grill Store Adjustable Rig system is so much better than the new KJ system. I like being able to easily grab the rig and lift out and or rotate the "entire" rack system. The Adj Rig slid…

  • Lit said: Royal oak is fine. I bought 2 bags of Rockwood and gave one to a egghead friend to try and neither of us were impressed. Not sure what the big deal is but to each their own I guess. i am a fan of ozark oak though I have my parents p…
  • Getting your cook higher in the dome will help a little and don't use any liquid in your drip pan if that is what you are doing now.As many others have said, try another rub with a higher sugar content.Good luck.

  • If it's in clean shape snatch it up...You can always flip it in the future. At that price you will NOT loose money.

  • Great cook... As @ Bullhalsey said. Do platesetter legs up next time. Your steak is to close to the stone and getting to much radiant heat from the stone, or not enough if the stone is cold.
