  • White oak is more suited for outdoor applications than red or other species of oak. Cypress and cedar withstand the elements well but aren't as pleasing to the eye. Teak and redwood are excellent choices but expensive. Regards, Willy
  • You may need to format your alignment.If you can make it fit your egging will Excel. Regards, HBW
  • Just picked one up about a month ago. Works great for lightly oiling veggies before grilling them. Seems to hold the pressure for a reasonable time, but when the pressure gets low it will dribble the oil and make a mess. I pump it up before each use…
  • Mike, we both seem to agree that a probe access hole in the back of the dome would be advantageous. However, you don't want to drill your good dome and I'll a little apprehensive of drilling mine. So, why don't I come drill a hole in yours and you d…
  • My setup is under roof and weather protected so the DQ II stays with the egg unless we are leaving for an extended period. I agree that the DQ II is not for high temp control but temp monitoring would be a plus. Having the temp probe in place and ou…
  • Doesn't running the probe wire through the vent and so close to the fire cause problems. I think that the insulation on the wire is only good to about 450°F. My idea is to drill another hole and keep the probe wire insulation completely outside the …
  • Thanks Mike, for the drilling information. I would like to make another port in the dome for the Digi II probe. I don't have a local dealer and bought my LBGE from an Internet dealer, so I guess I don't have a warranty anyway. I wonder why BGE sell…
  • I got those at a local dollar store. They are made to support flower pots. The material is either clay or ceramic. They will stand the heat outside the egg but they discolor when used in the egg to hold the pizza stone off the plate setter. Of cours…
  • Or these?
  • Like these?
  • The latest issue of Cook's Illustrated has an article on using flap meat and short ribs to create an old fashioned hamburger. It sounds good. Flap meat is the sirloin ends. Bill
  • I had cleared everything before and I just repeated the proceedure. Still no luck. I get to this page (http://www.eggheadforum.com/index.php?option=com_comprofiler&task=login) and when I navigate back to the forum I am not logged in. IIRC I used…
  • We are less than 3 miles from the new US50 bridge across the Ohio River. It is set to open next month after many delays. We will be passing close to you on Memorial Day weekend on our way to Pocahontas County. We host an annual BMW motorcycle rally …
  • Hi Mike. Just got mine as well and have used it 3 or 4 times. It holds the temp well on the LBGE. Haven't found any "don't do that" issues yet. It delivers all the good qualities of the egg with the convience of an indoor range. Where in WV are y…
  • OK, here goes. http://i306.photobucket.com/albums/nn263/sargo583/board.jpg
  • I build similar boards and will post a picture when I find the link to the posting instructions. You're right about folks wanting them. What is your finish? It seems shiny. I use food grade mineral oil. Bill
  • Nice cart johnrezz. Did you build the endgrain cutting board? It is nice too. Bill
  • Don't have a Target store near me but we have a kitchen supply store. I bought a small and inexpensive stone there and used it in the egg for a while. Worked pretty good until I decided to use it as a heat shield on the spider for indirect cooking. …
  • Thanks to all who responded to my pizza stone question. As a further note, I have a 16" stone which I have been using indirect on a raised grid in the LBGE. It works well except for the fact that it is glazed and not porous. I have been searching fo…
  • Smith & Wesson manufactures a multitude of anti-theft devices. Sounds as if there is more than a Green Egg at risk. One of their offerings may be a good option for your neighborhood. Hillbilly Willy
  • Well done? Make mine medium rare. The table is nice too. :laugh:
  • Those look mighty fine, Rob. You may not have a lot of BBQ on the left coast, but you have the Napa Valley and all it's bounty. Do you California folks mount your eggs on springs in case things get shaky?[p]Bill
  • RRP, Now there is a novel idea. I have seen walnuts cut crosswise and used for buttons, but I would not have thought to cut them up with a bandsaw to get at the kernels. I am a hobby woodworker with two bandsaws and there are plenty of nuts this yea…
  • ccraig4604, Don't know the relative cook times of bone in versus boneless BBs, but the bone is useful to determine when the butt is done. When the meat is loose on the bone I kow it's ready for pulling. Without the bone you will have to resort to so…
  • Edintx, Is a pizzastine what you drink beer from while making pizza on the egg? Thought so. My favorite pizza stein is not ceramic or green, but that would be a nice accessory for the BGE. [p]Bill
  • Spin, Maybe slower is faster. Heats up fast, cools down slow. (smile) [p]Bill
  • Spring Chicken, I couldn't agree more and the good ones don't come in cans or from the frozen food isle. Those look great. Got some butter and habanero jelly? Bonnie and I also enjoy cast iron or black pot cooking. Goes well with the BGE cooker.[p]…
  • darnoc, I built that temporary table for the egg until I have time to build in the egg, refrigerator and Patio II into a single cabinet. Bonnie commented on my color coordination, but teal blue was what I had handy. Looks OK to me and the cooking st…
