We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

  • My method is to let the Egg come close to temp before installing my DigiQ. Mine has a 10cfm blower and I have a large BGE. The damper on the fan is set to a eighth opening and my petals are open a sliver. I would let the egg come up a little higher…
  • Is that the new Willy Wanka Everlasting charcoal? :laugh:
  • For what it's worth I can vouch that the brisket flat I bought last week from Costco had Jacquard type holes in it. When I look at the sub-primal they are still in the cryovac pacs. My guess is wrap meat may be tenderized but cryovac won't be. By…
  • My mushroom expertise is such that I can only safely eat three varieties. Morels, sulfur shelfs and puff balls. Yours are puff balls and they are safe to eat.
  • Willie, I followed the details from the Naked Whiz's site on the Rutland install (http://www.nakedwhiz.com/rutlandgasket/gasket.htm) and was successful with one exception. Over time and a bunch of high temp pizza cooks the gasket is fine but the a…
  • When I was growing up there was a nice lady from Germany down the block with a beautiful German Shepherd trained as a Shutzhund. All the training words where in German except the attack word, that was "nice doggy". All the kids on the block new the …
  • I keep my stuff in a Christmas Wreath box. Then put the box on a shelf in my basement. Low tech and low budget but all I need.
  • I recommend "the best bread ever" by Charles Van Over. His work goes into great detail on using a food processor for bread. you van make artisan class breads with a food processor. There are two caveats. The batch size is limited but larger then mo…
  • If you do consider the Super Peel, it is not without its problems. This link is to my results http://www.eggheadforum.com/index.php?option=com_simpleboard&func=view&id=520002&catid=1# I don’t use mine now and prefer a cheap peel that c…
  • These folks have the largest collection of Spanish cooking stuff anywhere I've seen. Including a 6 foot diameter Paella pan. They have more then this recipe but this is there famous one. http://www.kitchenwindow.com/H_RecipePaella.asp
  • I work in this industry. Every digital copier that I work on has an immediate image overwrite protection available to the customer if they chose to set it up and use it. This function is available for print as well as copy. It is free. As a for fee…
  • Forgot Menards and the RO steak house lump. Theres got to be a few of those you pass on any given highway.
  • Theres the Charcoal Store in Shakopee http://www.charcoalstore.com/policy.shtml They are open for retail and are close to Canterbury Downs. Prices are on there website. If you go big time it's down to $11.80 a bag for Dragons Breath. If you want …
  • BigA, I saw your post about what your spending for lump. If you get to MPLS and want cheaper there are sources other then the big box or the blue place. TTFN WLL
  • I'm in Minneapolis. There are a bunch of Egg dealers here so I assume a bunch Eggers. There has been an Eggfest at Poolside for three years in October. TTFN WLL
  • This weeks Americas Test Kitchen had a technique for cooking fish on a grill that was heated to over 650 degrees. They did multiple applications of cooking oil to build up the polymers on the grate. I have never had any kind of seasoning take on my…
  • A note of caution: DRINKING CAN CAUSE MEMORY LOSS OR WORSE ... MEMORY LOSS :woohoo:
  • I have used this on Alton's lime tenderloin and give it a thumbs up. The recipe is for ribs but I'm a traditionalist for my sauce on ribs but if you like rum you may want to try it. http://www.kitchenwindow.com/H_RecipeGrillmasterRibs.asp
  • First I’m not a pro, just a guy making diner. With that credential this is what I do: Apply my rub, there’s several recipes for Santa Maria rub. I’ve been using on from a jar called Island Spice. It seems like Lawry’s with some heat. I set up with…
  • I do six different cooks with my spider at higher temps and use it as an indirect piece holder for low temps. The high temp use is a medium cast iron grate in the down or the inverted position. (thats two) I like to do a reverse sear a lot so I do …
  • I have used Frontier from the Ace two blocks from my house. The reason I tried it was the very clear labeling on it that said MADE IN USA. My results where pretty good. It wasn't sparky and the smell was OK. Burn time was average. Plus the price is …
  • This has to be the most fun with photo shop I've seen in a while. Thanks for a good laugh. WLL
  • I haven't seen this at my local Ace. I've got an Ace that sells Frontier (Made in USA) another that sells Cowboy and two others that are BGE dealers that sell BGE and Wicked. I live in the city so these are within a couple of miles. The Lowe's sells…
  • I am going to contradict everyone. As to rubs or bastes and smoke use what you like. As to cooking I recently found a long write-up on a different BBQ site that I tried and really liked. I’ve been cooking pork to 145 for a while and I plan on still…
  • I have my old steel Wok but I did look into this question. Decided I was happy with the one I have. What I found is that there are two kinds of cast iron Woks. The American kind, it's about 7mm thick and usually has a flat disk on the bottom. Thats…
  • You can try a bicycle shop for detergent based chain cleaners. If you want to buy on-line I would go to "Bike Nashbar" http://www.nashbar.com/bikes/TopCategory_10053_10052_200293_-1_200278_N The Orange based ones have worked on my bicycle chain bet…
  • I picked up my replacement firebox last week and it was the old style without the slot. I didn't have any special expectation and the original went a couple of years so I'm not to concerned. Thought I should mention it so someone doesn't get an exp…
  • My better half watches a TV show called Hoarders. This has unfortunately put me in the position where I have to justify my comfort level of keeping more then a hundred pounds of lump on hand. I have the space and a shelving system for it. I can mak…
  • I've had mine two years. It has always been accurate. Range is enough for me (maybe 35 feet). I set the alarms on overnights and it hasn't let me down. I see these posts about problems on this forum at regular intervals. Some folks have no problems…
  • I like to try every brand that I can get. I have favorites for each different cook that I do. My recomendation is that you try them all!
