  • I'll third or fourth or what ever the count is in say it was your BIL not the Weber, but in all honestly cooking 10 T-bones and having them all come out perfect can be a challenge, especially if he was trying to have everyone sit down to eat at the …
  • I buy from these guys. Shipping looks expensive for one jar but it stays the same for up to seven jars so I buy at least 4 at a time. These are quart bottles, not pints.…
  • Some folks here don't know whether to use dome or grate temp, now this?LOL, just kidding. You can never have to much knowledge, except this is a little above my pay scale.    
  • Barely open also, I have a guru and sneak up on the temp just like when I'm cooking with out it. If I'm looking for 250 I start at around 225, it will over shoot then I just bump it up to 250 on the guru.Also, I always clip my pit probe to the BGE t…
  • Good thread. It proves one mans trash is another mans treasure. like @SGH I have things I use more then others but most things I purchased do get used. Unlike @Little Steven I love the turbo grate and have one on both my larges. They been there sinc…
  • cook861 said: Buy the large then you dont have to buy any new accesories This was my thinking when I bought my second large, now I have two of everything. 
  • While I'm not a fan of mint or peas in my dinner that meal is a 10.
  • I agree, a second large is worth thinking about.
  • Nice rack and cook indeed. Is that a cat bed under the mount? If so I can see the cat using the bird to make it to the mount, and nothing good can come of that.
  • These or something similar. do the meat on one and vegetables on the other method so nothing gets ov…
  • I really am watching paint dry.
  • One day, a priest decides to take a walk to the pier near his church. He looks around and finally stops to watch a fisherman load his boat. The fisherman notices, and asks the priest if he would like to join him for a couple of hours. The priest agr…
  • Wish I had an extra screw. Really though, is there any such thing?
  • I'm toying with Windows 10 on a laptop, it still has explorer 11 but the new browser will be coming soon I believe. Maybe I'll check it out on that.
  • For me it happens in threads I never viewed.
  • I complained about this a few weeks ago and no one else had the problem. It still does it most times not but all the time. Annoying.BTW I use internet explorer 11 on Windows 8.1 and everything is updated on my PC. It started after they did the last …
  • Great pies, and pictures like always. Looking forward to seeing more from both of you here.

  • KiterTodd said: Props if you make your own, as I make my own tomato sauce, but when it comes to pizza sauce I can't do any better than Don Pepino.  It's authentic, legit, with just the right flavor for me.  Anything else I try pre-made doesn'…
  • Being lazy and finding it not that much cheaper for some ingredients I buy mostly Dizzy Pig rubs. They work for me and I don't mind supporting someone who has more ambition then I do. 
  • Tonight is  a good night to take it easy.It's a damn mess out there so the meatloaf is going in the oven. Cheers.

  • Any dealer should cover a warranty issue. I also understand someone not going out of their way if I purchased my egg somewhere else but they still should have dealt with it, even if they took their time, I'd be good in that. I ended up taking the dr…
  • At the very least I would let him know how you feel and that you will be taking your future business elsewhere. I had a dealer near me who didn't want to do warranty work on my egg which I did not buy from them. I bought it at an eggfest. I still bu…
  • buzd504 said: I also have two pens, one backlit and one not. Question about the backlit - mine seems to be flaky about the backlit coming on.  Is it light sensitive or should it come on every time? It is light sensitive.
  • I also have two pens, an older standard and the newer backlit one. I also got a boot with the backlit pen. As clumsy as I am it will save me in the future. I like the backlit function.
  • Sorry, like @Eggcelsior said....This link came in an email yesterday. is the eggfest page.
