  • Misippi Egger wrote: Disposable aluminum foil pans work well. Or most any metal pan (8x11) (9x13) etc. Best to wrap entire pan in foil - keeps the wifie happy when the bottom of her pan isn't smoke stained. :ohmy: Yes I know. I used it…
    in Drip Pans Comment by Old Salt May 2009
  • My problem isn't about a drip pan but with a cast aluminum dutch oven. It has been used for many off uses and whatever is cooked on is coated on the inside. I even tried straight ammonia. Don't want to part with it since it's about 30+ years old and…
  • HEB has some pretty good sales on this week. A few $1.00 a pound meats.
  • Haven't lost any weight but exercising with my DP I found that the flab in my upper arms used to be muscle. OWWWW!
  • After my checkup and blood workup I decided with my doctors advice to exercise and lose some weight. I dug out my DP AirGometer bike and started to try to keep a regimen. This bike exercises both the lower and upper body. I've had it stowed away for…
  • I had my regular check up last Tuesday along with a complete blood workup including blood sugar and PSA for prostate. I'm borderline and below on most. My main problem is my weight. 5'11 and 254lbs. At my age 81 I need to loose more than 50lbs. Aft…
  • First thing this morning I checked my e-mails and had 28 pieces of trash. One was sent out from a family group about Gates and AOL giving money away. I received the same one a couple of weeks ago and returned it to our family group with a notation t…
  • I did a 4.25 lb roast Christmas. Cooked it at 350* indirect and pulled it 2 hours later when internal temp read 135*. It came out great. Next one I'll pull at 125* for a little more rareness.
  • Christmas was my first attempt at a standing rib roast on my clay egg. Leery of going too high with the temp I stabled it at 400 before putting on the meat. I put a water pan on the grid and bricks to raise the meat higher in the dome using a V ra…
  • Have the screw on the daisy facing the dome handle.
  • I have the old Kamado I bought in Japan in 1970. Mine is a large so it's the same measurements as a large Egg. I've replaced the firebox and fire ring. It's still working great. Sunday I cooked a ham and for Christmas I cooked a standing rib roast. …
  • It's just my wife and I so we bought a 4.25 lb roast. Right now it's in the refrigerator oiled and seasoned ready for the Egg on Christmas. I'll cook it at 350* indirect over a water pan using Jack Daniels chips for 2 hours or 135* internally.
  • We enjoy having the deer and turkeys along with all the critters in our area.
  • Cheapest here on sale for $1.39. Sale?
  • Many years ago when we lived in Cal I was driving up to the mountains at night when two deer ran across in front of me and I hit the second one. I stopped and looked for it and heard it bleating in the woods. The next morning my wife and I looked f…
  • We've lived in Whitney for 11 years. Used to go camping down here and decided to move here. We now live in a gated community called White Bluff that's a safe haven for wildlife. We've had to stop to let the wild turkeys cross the road.
  • Yes, that's the Homer Simpson Grill. Bought it thru the internet about 6 or 7 years ago for $10. Still in good condition. I hear they were trying to call them a classic or something and putting the price at $145.
  • My brother passed away last year and is buried in Arlington Cemetery. He was a Marine and was wounded on Guam. They are all slowly leaving us.
  • We have some ornamental peppers growing which look like your death peppers. Bright red and the size of cherries and grow in a little bush. I bit into one and had to eat a slice of bread to ease my mouth.
  • The Chinese mustard also will knock your socks off. A little dab will do you in.

  • My wife makes Scotch Shortbread every Christmas. Passed down from her Scotch ancestry. I'll get it from her and post it.
  • Would love to try it.
  • I use a 15" grate raised up on beer cans which brings it up deep into the dome. Since I have an old clay egg my fire ring is 6" and the space between the grate and seal is 3". I believe the BGE space is just 4".
  • Quite a few years we lived in a highly restricted community called Pecan Plantation where there is a restriction against discharging firearms in the complex. A newcomer moved there and couldn't get over how much wildlife there was. Deer and turkey r…
  • Someone on the Weber Forum had a WSM tatooed on his leg. It took a few appointments to complete.
  • Last night I did a spatchcock chicken direct at 425 for 1 hour and 15 minutes and it came out moist with crispy skin. We sprinkled seasoning salt, Mrs Dash and lemon pepper on them. When I put them on I sprayed them with Pam. They were raised up 1 i…
  • Fireplace cement should work on your firebox and holds it's own in high temps. I rebuilt mine using refractory cement and it was eaten out, not cracked or broken. When you get your new one you can keep the old one as a spare.
  • I have a Taylor and also fried my probe. It also read HI. I e-mailed them and they sent a new probe free since it was under warranty but any more would cost $5 plus shipping.
  • I'm still using mine. In fact it is the only egg I have. In spite of the age and repairs it still cooks and smokes great. Highest I go now is 450*. Don't want to burn it out again.
