  • Dang. I've done that. Four month old drip pan from ribs. :S That's the beauty of the Egg; it's self-cleaning.
  • Dang! I hope you bought one of the most import eggcessories, a treadmill! I put on near ten pounds in the months following getting my BGE. Coincidence? :woohoo: Lookin' good! Keep it up!
  • holy . . . . . That's incredible. I did, indeed, tear up a little. Blamed it on the allergies.
  • Oh dang! That just fit perfectly, didn't it?
  • Oooh, I want to see. After Waldorf, I told my wife I wanted a Mini and she said, "Where are you going to put it? you and your father are building a perfectly good cart and you haven't thought about that, have you?" There's a chance I could stil…
  • Brett, Awesome! My folks showed up just after you served and it was all gone. This is going in my cookbook, fo'sho! A real pleasure being your neighbor on Saturday, man.
  • I used a hair dryer. . . . once. . . It got way out of hand and I actually ruined my wife's dryer. Oh well. It was an excuse for her to go and get an 80$ professional one. I actually use just a little dollar-store hand-held fan. Takes two AA b…
  • Joe and Maryanna, Glad you had a good time. It was awesome chatting with the both of you. Hope to see you at the next one!!
  • No problem. I like to start with the trimmed hearts of romaine. When it's just my wife and I, a half is usually a good serving. If I'm going to chop it afterward and serve to a bunch of people, untrimmed heads are okay. The tips of the leaves …
  • Y'all are missing the secret to the morning after. . . don't go to bed. I stayed in the hotel parking lot until 'bout 4:00AM and then decided it would be rude of me to sneak back into my parents' house. So I decided to drive back up to Bel Air…
  • Looks like you just missed the first bracket. Edit the post and put it back on there. Should work
  • Ditto! Thursday night was really great. I missed the meet 'n' greet, unfortunately. But Saturday and the after party more than made up for that. It was both humbling and inspiring to meet everyone there and see the awesome stuff they're all do…
  • Outfriggin'standing! My mom was doing my food-fetchin' for me while I was trying to force people to eat salad. When she brought one of those cookie by, my tongue literally did a dance of joy. Sorry, I didn't get a chance to tell you personall…
  • I'm in the exact same boat. I thought the large was all I would ever need. But after WessB's Sliders, Max's dawg, and seeing Rick'sTropicalDelight putting the pork loin on (didn't get to taste it though), I'm convinced a mini is in my future.
  • Gene Simmons from KISS was on the radio years ago hawking the newly-released KISS Coffin. He was also very quick to point out that it was waterproof and could double as a beer cooler for KISS parties until you "need" it for it's intended purposes…
  • Also, awesome pics!
  • Rick, funny you should say that. I find that I drink less when it's my own beer. :P That said, owe everyone at next year's after party, mos'def! Hoss, truly a pleasure chitchattin' with you at the after and sorry for keepin' you up so late.
  • Awesome photos! Somehow, I completely missed out on everything that came out of that end of the 'fest. Guess I was too involved in my own cooking. Newbie mistake, I suppose. That stuff all looks amazingly incredible. Dang, now I'm all hungr…
  • Rick you asked fer it. You got it.
  • 3:00AM? Yeah, maybe for the less-hardcore. We actually had three non-eggers "crash" the party and hang out with us for another hour after that. What a blast!! For my first 'fest, I was really surprised and pleased with how cool everyone w…
  • Haha yeah. My wife just emailed me and guilted me because of gas prices. If I weren't so much in the red with my spendin' allowance, I'd walk across the street to the shoe store.
  • I also have this issue some times. usually after it's been raining for a while. I generally just fire things up and let it all burn off. Sometimes, I'll do this the day before I plan on cooking. I have seen a suggestion to suspend a 40watt l…
  • I hope the weather holds out. I'm blowing off my finals on Saturday to come. ;P Well, I'm taking them early.
  • I made arrangements to leave work (Baltimore) a little early today to drive down to my folks' in Waldorf. Now I just realized I forgot to pack non-work shoes. So I have to drive BACK up to Bel Air to get shoes and drive back through Baltimore traf…
  • WessB,[p]We're in Bel Air, MD.[p]Thanks for all the advice, folks. I guess I'll get on lighting that fire then!
  • MattB,[p]That's no table. That's a starship.
  • JudyFoodie,[p]Mine was only welded on one side also. But I think it was one "spot". That is, you can look at the new one and see where it was tacked in two places, right side by side. My first one seemed to only be welded on the very tip of the c…
  • JudyFoodie,[p]If you're able to use it to clean out the ash, it's the right size. ;P[p]I suppose the major differences are in the length of the "scrapey end", since the draft doors on the various models may differ.[p]Keep an eye on that springy han…
  • So they came out.[p]I totally nailed the flavor I was going for with the rub/glaze ingredients.[p]However, they ribs themselves were both too tough and WAYYY to soft. It was almost like jerkey wrapped around greasy pulled pork. There weren't even …
  • McGuire,[p]It's all about your creativity.[p] [p]Take a trip to your local hardware store and go to where they have chimney or vent fixin's. I made mine out of a duct reducer and some kind of cap. Just drove three screws into it to hold it all…
