  • So, did you order the large?
  • See you in the morning Max!
  • Susan, That's good. I like it! Yes, I am a CPA. I think we met at Waldorf, but my memory isn't the best these days. FYI, I didn't build it. Just wrote the checks and spent the money to build it. Tom
  • Also, we are having a naming contest. Any ideas?
  • I haven't measured yet, but we had at least 20" of snow. I stuck my BGE's under the roof of my new soon-to-be outdoor kitchen and grilled burgers last night during the blizzard of 2009. I don't recall the last time it snowed 24 straight hours ar…
  • Wess, You looked more relaxed and had a great time as a result. The food, of course, was great. Thanks to you and Sally for a great time. It was great to see fellow Eggers again. Now, I will return the favor when my outdoor Eggnest is fin…
  • No offense taken, Bill. Gotta have something to laugh about. I always that it's funny when I told people I had MS at another Egg event (I was hospitalized just two days after the 2008 Waldorf Eggfest), I mentioned I was stumbling and slurring my…
  • As someone who actually suffers from a "demylination of the nerves" in his central nervous system and fellow Egger, I can attest to the fact that isn't his problem. The problem is a lack of brain cells caused by excessive playing video games or t…
  • Hey guys, Out all day visiting clients. I was too tired to answer until this morning. Thanks for the feedback. The doors are not reversed. I did put a slotted screwdriver in the track this morning and did loosen the slides a bit, but they s…
  • Max, I hear ya. Almost a 2 to 1 PP advantage is ludicrous, as well as being out shot by the same margin is equally insane. But, they didn't rely on Alex OV last night, which was great. Have fun tomorrow night. Let us know what it's like.
  • Max, Max, buddy-I am so jealous you are going tomorrow night! I will be watching on my big screen tomorrow night! My wife thought I should trade my new medium BGE for the ticket with you but I said, "No chance, I wouldn't trade the BGE for the …
  • Who are the CANES? Are they a bunch of senior citizens? Seriously, we may have been outplayed, but our penalty-killing unit must have been dog tired. They were out there for at least 13 minutes the whole game. That's at least 1/4th of the ga…

  • Zippy, Thanks for the recipe. I should been more specific about what I ate. It had the shrimp in the middle. And I do agree, the fatty that NatureBoy served was the best thing I ate all day. Yours was a close second. Tom

  • MadMax, Thanks. I made need the help. Still getting used to these stupid little things in my head!!!!! Tom
  • Shooting you an e-mail Wess for the information. Tom
  • FYI, I meant to say he mostly did the finish up work. The tiki bar is a whole bunch of wood laying in my back yard right now. Tom
  • I live in MD, about 1/2 hour from WessB. Thanks for all the assistance. I have lived here 46 years and made a lot of contacts. so I have contacts in the legal and law enforcement community. This guy was duly warned not to screw with me. One bu…
  • Bevo, Thanks for the heads up and the advice. It's good to hear from others who know what you go through. Thanks to all as well for the kind words of support. You are all too kind. Tom
  • Thanks for the help everyone. I wrapped and I ran.... out of here that is as the dinner was 5 minutes from home. I put them in a cooler and threw them in the oven at the kitchen and finished them there. I had to bump the temp as suggested, but t…
  • They haven't quite made it to 170. I hope I am not screwed. Tom
  • WMK, I got it. So I am able to access it. Thanks. Tom
  • jhitthetrail,[p]Like you, I was a bit intimidated when I bought mine. After a few steaks, burgers, sausages, etc., I gained confidence in temperature control. I pretty much have memorized my settings so now I have no trouble in that area. It take…
  • max,[p]Thanks for the advice. I keep getting tripped up by that. It happened to me with the skirt steak as well.[p]Time to go back to the butcher for another lesson.[p]Tom
  • mad max beyond eggdome,[p]Thanks, Max. I enjoy medium rare as well. I never used to until I got the BEG.[p]Tom
  • edbro,[p]I didn't realize that until you mentioned it. It does look like that. I blanked on that because it was late and I was starving. The mind does terrible things to you when you are starving. I won't make that mistake again.[p]It still taste…
  • Spring Chicken,[p]Considering those might be the only two skills I have, I'll take it! LOL.[p]Tom
  • Tom B.,[p]That seems a bit much. I would get it in the states given those prices. Heck, my plate setter was over $20 less.[p]One way to save money is buy only essential eggcessories now and buy the rest later. That might be heresy, but that's wha…
  • Big'un,[p]I would love to but I am in the middle of soccer season. I coach my daughter's team and I referee for traveling and high school teams. This time of year is hectic.[p]However, I do plan on putting the Waldorf Eggfest on my calendar for ne…
  • Big'un,[p]Oops. Sorry, I am still winding down from last night. I should have seen that coming...[p]At first the bartender was a bit of a jerk because he was gruff with her and it scared her, but he apologized later and I am fine with that.[p]I di…
  • Big'un,[p]I never thought about the issue of selling the second hand meat. And I appreciate the very good suggestions on what to do with the pulled pork. It's always great to get other ideas.[p]A bit off-topic but something that happened last nigh…
