  • Just wondering what lake you hang out at in Iowa??? Our old stompen ground was Clear Lake, Iowa. We loved the place, but we've been in Wisconsin 36 years now.

  • Thank you to everyone for your assistance. We do have the ability to reposition the egg somewhat against the wind, and will try the foil, too. We will let you know how it goes. It is only our 2nd time using the cyber Q. We will let you know how …
  • We have a 4 cfm fan, would we still need to tent the fan? Thanks....
  • There is a technique: pull down 1/3 of the husk about 2/3 of the way down, pull the silk out, then do the next third. I have the best luck doing it this way. I, too, love the Midwest corn on the cob on the grill....ummmmm..
  • If dieting or diabetic: Splenda has good recipes for cucumber salad. If the link doesn't work just go to Splenda website. The recipe we like is Danish Cucumber Salad. Dawn Oshkos…
  • We made the maple salmon tonight, too. It was fantastic! Didn't really get a crusty glaze, didn't cook it too long after applying the glaze because it was cold and a strong wind and we were hungry.... Anyway, great recipe.... What did you think?
  • We found butcher's twine at Fleet Farm!
  • I was unable to access the weight loss forum. Is there a link somewhere? thanks.....
  • here is the link for this year's competition:
  • We put our ribs on at 1240, first cook since November. It has been too cold to think about eggen' but today it is in the 30's, almost short sleeve weather for us.
  • Great idea! My husband is quite inspired by your gazebo and I like that it is heated. Only way to egg up North, I think... Now he has more projects to do. Don't know anyone looking for Koi, they really multiplied. We are sure glad it is above z…
  • Anne, I think you said you live in Milwaukee, do you have a pic of where you keep the egg in the winter? It almost looks like it is some how enclosed. I see snow outside. Our egg is buried here in Oshkosh and I'm betting it is frozen shut, too. …
  • We just cleaned out the basement freezer in order to clean/remove the frost, too. We figured it was a good time to remove the frozen meat to coolers and set outside because it certainly isn't going to thaw out there. Now have to organize, bring olde…
  • Soooo how did they turn out???
  • 500-550 temp 2 minutes each side. Shut all the vents down and do another 1-2 min each side, depending on thickness of steak and preferred doneness. This is usually rare to med rare for us. They turn out great!
  • CRNA would be great! There are some ICU's that will hire new grads, a smaller community hospital. The ICU experience is a real plus, if not a neccesity for CRNA. And with a family will be a challenge. you definitely need the egg for a stress redu…
  • Hey,nursing school is definitely stressful. I have been a practicing nurse for 22 yrs and my daughter just graduated in December. You do need things to reduce stess and eggin' certainly does that. Although I do enjoy it more when it is warm outsi…
  • AVG has a FREE edition, too. It works great, we have it on 2 laptops and no problems for a few years.
  • Yep, we are buried, too. I did hear that Milwaukee area has more snow though. We will be in Waukesha over Christmas. It is hard to find other eggers in WI. It's a blizzard out there this evening. Have you dug out the egg much since the snow hit…
  • Mike & Dawn Oshkosh, WI Our son introduced us to the BGE, he's in Kansas City, MO
  • I've done 4 cooks for ribs since June and have had great success. Read the forum frequently for great tips from the veteran eggers. I coat the ribs with yellow mustard well and sprinkle with both Dizzy Dust and BGE Maple seasoning. On the BGE with …
  • When and where will this cookbook be available? Sounds awesome!
  • It's great to see so many WI eggers, we are trying to talk the brother in law, he's in Waukesha, into a BGE, but so far he is attached to his Weber. Can't figure it out!
  • No, do they do classes specific the BGE. We were there shopping while they were having a regular grilling class. I don't think it was Mad Dog & Merrill. It would be fun.
  • We bought our first BGE,large, 4 months ago. I have fibro/pain issues and I have not had any problems. I do probably need to grip it stronger than my husband. And don't forget to burp it when it is hot. I know that when I've concentrated on lifti…

  • Thank you very much for your help. It certainly smells very good. The temp has been a little difficult to control tonight since there is a very cool 40's breeze out there (Oshkosh, WI)
  • It was meant to be a ham steak! My daughter asked if we wanted to split a pig, so she had the meat processed and brought it to us. She didn't know that you had to cure the ham, she thought it came off the pig as ham. Ha ha! she hasn't lived it do…
  • Everyone has such great set ups. It's fun seeing everyone's handiwork. Question about the mini: Can you do a low & slow cook on the mini or is that best left to at least the small size? What can you get on a mini?
  • Where did you find the recipe?????
