  • Take if from someone (me) who travels a lot with eggs. I take multiple 3 hour trips a year with my small, and have tried every way possible. Anytime an egg is hooked to trailer hitch in any way, u run a very serious risk of cracking atleast the in…
  • Fish----love it. Could turn out to be a very good place to get a lot of good options in 1 spot. MM - :laugh: Your dagumm pic of that crisp got you elected. Actually, you are more off the hook than you might think. You are right on as far as…
  • Good Yager...this may be catchin some steam here. I like to host on Friday nights, so this could be quite helpful.
  • Yes...that is what I was thinking. Also, for example, what if that First Friday's ingredient was boneless pork chops. Specific, but open on however you wanted to do them. 1. We got a lot of different takes on pork chops and how to do them. …
  • Mary, Thanks for your post. Honestly, I think this appeals to folks like you and me more than some folks here because we are still learning a lot. Everyone here would say that they are constantly learning, but in reality we are surrounded by so…
  • No apologies necessary. I just didn't/ don't really know about Throwdowns. Except that I would take Bobby Flay in one if it was for who is the better soccer player. :woohoo: Can someone give me the lowdown on what the Throwdowns on here are, …
  • I guess I'm showing my tail end a little bit here. I sincerely apologize for any stepped on toes about this idea. Not intentional I promise you. I should prolly just delete the post if that is possible. I need to be more involved on the forum as…
  • Hendricks is the best gin out there...hands down. Gotta love the earth tone in it.
  • You know it...like the blueberry twist as well. Just decided to skip lunch...which means that I will eat half the dessert. We tend to be able to find the perfect peach down in here in GA.
  • YEP!!! What Mad Max just posted! However, I will be doing it tonight after the egg has been chuggin along for an hour...not 20 hours. B) Also, I will be using my 5 qt. cast iron dutch oven. And by good Vanilla Ice Cream...I go with Breyers …
  • I tend to agree for the most part with using the oven inside for atleast something, but the best Peach Cobbler my wife said she ever had was just a plain on dump ingredient style Peach Cobbler that I did after a random cook. We were both just cravi…
  • I TOTALLY understand the hesitancy after an event like you had, but honestly I think you of all people would be careful enough to never have it happen again. That being said, I cannot imagine not using my LGE for searing steaks, Spatchcock chicke…
  • Gotsta love camping in the backyard. The 5th wheel needs to be aired out occasionally too between real road camp trips huh! Great stuff and Great pics. Thanks for sharing, and giving great reminders.
  • OZ, Great idea on fillin the freezer...I do it with PPork, and great cuts of meat that I find on sale, but should do it with bird. I have 4 young boys, so needing good size meals is a must. Another reason that you mentioned is that whole chickens…
  • Geez...hard to disagree with SP here. Ribs or steak? Two of my (and EVERYONE'S) all time favorite. They also turn out so well. Be careful if you do steak though. I doubt that the gasket would like a T-Rex'd cook this early in life. Ribs thou…
  • Larry....you should keep in mind that you can always use my Small (or your small for that matter) and hook up my tailgaiter to your truck if that is what yall take to Atlanta. The mini could hitch a ride too, and sit beside the small. Let me know …
  • I TOTALLY agree with the Spatchcock route. I do em all the time, and everyone loves yard bird. Main reason...it is SO FREAKIN SIMPLE and SO FREAKIN TASTY. Take the time to get to know your grill a little bit as far as lighting it, letting it ge…
  • I swear by Wicked Good lump these days. The large pieces are 3-4 times larger than the BGE large pieces. Much more dense as well. My last 10 overnight cooks have not been touched, and I don't use a DigiQ at all. Just the remote therm, but again,…
  • Be glad you grabbed it. I promise you I would have. In fact...I'll paypal you $150 if you give him my address! B) B)
  • First of all, the whole 72 virgin thing may or may not be a myth, but no one ever said what gender the virgins would be, so I ain't takin any chances. Personally, I would cook for em and plate up somethin' awesome. Gently ask em who complained (…
  • I will get a post going next time, and plan to stay in the Springs for a few days next time. Honestly, we were there for hours only. Stopped by the US Olympic training facility cause I have a lil' world class gymnast in my 10 yr old (current bronz…
  • Beautiful... Also, pretty much everyone on this forum loves char, and I really hope you didn't scrape some of that off. :P I LOVE LOVE LOVE Chicken Dive In (what it is referred to at our table). It is a little early for a heavy meal right …
  • Swung by the Air Force Academy while in Colorado Springs last week. AWESOME!! USA!!! USA!!! USA!!!
  • Here in Augusta, sadly, I'm not. We get over to Kiawah pretty often, and my wife goes in to Charleston on a very regular basis. I buy their hottest hot sauce by the quart there. VERY VERY reasonable as well. They charge me $8 per quart (which fi…
  • THANK YOU!!! GREAT ADVICE! I will be shipping about 10 bottles of Southern Soul BBQ sauce from St. Simons Island. It is my buddies (and my) favorite sauce. Will also ship some of the Habanero Hot BBQ sauce from Jim and Nicks. That stuff is …
  • Good stuff so far... I should have mentioned that my buddy really only has a large plate setter, CI grate, and the basic included accessories and grilling tools that everyone in the world has. He bought his egg this year...when I made him do i…
  • Weber makes it, and it is a very standard light. Will fit most all grill handles, but certainly fits the green egg handle well. Amazon has it real cheap and in stock...takes 48 seconds to install. :laugh: http://www.amazon.com/Weber-6503-Q-…
  • They would rather take a ride in a plane than a Honda, but they seem to like my small pretty well.
  • Dang boyeeeee....I want one of those right now! :whistle: Great cook, and I love seeing stuff that our small can do. Keep it up!
  • I do three birds (5 lbs each) on my large EVERY TIME I DO EM. Reason is simple. Never too much chicken at my house, and any leftovers get thrown into an awesome chicken salad my baby makes. Also, and this is my kicker, the three birds are placed …
