  • Recently I have been using 'fat wood' to start up my eggs and my chiminea. I bought about 30lbs of this stuff and it works great. Light up two of the sticks and in about 15 minutes I have a blazing fire.
  • Do you have one of these? I am guessing you do from your post. Is it pretty easy to use or is it more of a pain in the rear to use. I have been curious on the difference these units make on cooking and would be interested in getting your impressi…
  • Really cool article/tutorial! I have been curious about this whole sous vide hype and am not interesting in shelling out at seriuos dough to check it out, but I am willing to experiment with the $75 version. Plus I get to build something.... double …
  • We were contemplating making a big built in out door kitchen, but then decided against it as we don't know if we are staying going to stay in the house forever. We ended up buying a custom made table on casters and absolutely love it. The best thing…
  • Congratulations! Our first little girl is due in May and I am already thinking about adding a Small BGE so she can cook with her daddy.... at least that is how I am pitching it to the wife! Have an awesome Christmas!
  • I am so glad to hear that everything survived the trip and it arrived in a reasonable amount of time. Hope you enjoy everything!
  • If you did sign up this year, then check your spam folder if you use Yahoo. I was not getting any Elfster emails and found out that they were all going to my Spam folder. I had to 'trust' the sender and now everything is good. You can also log on to…
  • I have a couple of covers from these guys. Not a bad price, good quality, and nice to look at compared to the 'plastic bag' look that some covers have. http://www.weatherreadycovers.com/oval-grill-cover-long-table.html This company makes custo…
  • I purchased my table through BBQ Outfitters in Southlake, TX (in the DFW area). They are awesome and built like a tank. A picture of the work that their builder did for me is here:
  • I was talking with my egg dealer while he was delivering my new XL egg and he said that he has had some requests for purchasing the new dome design. I could be wrong but I remember him quoting somewhere around the $250-300 for the new dome. Check wi…
  • Thanks for the posting. I purchased a XL to go with my Large a few weeks ago and have been waiting for the flip3 to be back in stock. Order placed for that and a few other 'necessities'! :laugh:
  • I just purchased a cover for my XL and my Lrg in a table. Seems to be well constructed and they look nice to boot as they have a few colors and patterns to choose from also. I ended up with the WeatherReady black ones to match other covers I have on…
  • Thanks! I do not have the plans, as I just told them what I wanted and they built it, but it is basically the dimensions of a 60" table with the addition of a lower shelf with a wood surround.
  • Congrats! I know you will enjoy it as much as I have already. Looking forward to hearing about your cooks!
  • Good to hear that you have been kept in the loop with you stoker delivery. I have been enjoying using mine and think that you will love it once you receive it. The stoker is featured on the 'diamond state cook' on the BBQ Pitmasters show. Harry S…
  • I used mine for the first time last night. It took a little bit to get use to the interface, but it is pretty straight forward. You are going to love it once you receive it. I am very happy with the product, despite the time it took for shipment. Ha…
  • I just received my Stoker in the mail today.I too had difficulty getting any information from Rock's BBQ. All I can say is hang in there... it will come.
  • hae to break it to ya, but SF Steak House closed a few years back. The misses and myself were prety bummed, because they had great prime rib, french onion soup served in an actual onion, and who could go wrong to be greeted with a big block of swiss…
  • I would have to second the recommendations for Bobs Steak and Chop House. Probably one of the best upscale steak houses I have ever been. There is one in Dallas and one in Grapevine... go to the Dallas location. Other recommendations: - Tex-Me…
  • Great looking setup. Thanks for the measurements!
  • Very Nice indeed! We are about to take the plunge into having an outdoor kitchen built very similarly to what you have. I am curious... how far away from the side of the house is the counter? We are trying to figure out how much space is needed s…
  • Thanks for the heads up! I just signed up for the Southlake class. I have been working through his "Bread Maker's Apprentice" Book for the past few months, so I am pumped to be able to meet him and watch him teach. See you there!
  • The same thing happened to me about 4 years ago. It unfortunately was the first day I bought it and was trying to get the assembled egg in my backyard. I got it all the way to the back porch, pushed instead of pulled and BAM!!! Not a happy day. I…
  • I have the DVD and it is very well put together.
  • You can buy Ozark Oak at BBQ Outfitters in Southlake. It is right off of HWY 114. The owner, Paul, is a great guy and runs an outstanding local business. Loves egg too!
  • That's a great looking kitchen, Bubba Tim! Is that rock veneer on the outside or is it actual stone construction? If it is a veneer, what is your internal structure made of? I am in the process of designing my new man kitchen and am exploring dif…
  • That looks great! I love Osso Bucco, but I have never egg'd them. I am sure the smokey flavor from the meat added a nice extra treat!
  • This looks amazing! Did the habanero make it real spicy?
  • Yeah.... so I scrolled down a little lower on the forum and had a few questions answered.... whoops.... I wonder why the search feature did not list that? [p]Any other ideas would be much appreciated on meatloaf cooking.[p]-Lightnin' Bolt
  • Sorry for the last post... stupid enter key!!![p]This is my first eggfest and I am pumped. Although I will not be cooking anything this weekend, I am excited about meeting everyone and learning new egg techniques. See you guys tomorrow at the meet n…
