  • I cooked a nine pounder for 4th of July here in Columbus. Came out great following the advice given above. Have to get in shape for the Bucks games coming up here in sunny Columbus. Cheers, Erik
  • That is sweet, well done, I hope you enjoy it. Is that a Klipsch iPod player I see in the first picture? I have one too, and I can't believe how impressive it sounds. Cheers, erik

  • Chef was pretty rough on him, I thought the sausage gravy looked pretty good. Interesting at the end when the guy was ready to fight with Ramsay.
  • The place I bought my Large (Mr. Mulch Outdoor Living in Columbus, OH) sells traeger as well, and uses the pellets during cooks at their demos. Seems to work pretty well. Cheers, Erik
  • I wonder if they'd do a run of BGE openers if we got enough interest?
  • Thanks for the tip, I've watched since season one with Mrs. ewillie. I'd add a rancorous Gordon quote, but the ones I can think of might get me thrown off the site.
  • Thanks for the tips, I really appreciate it. I've done the regular tenderloins that come in the plastic in the butcher shops, but they are much smaller. I know that the tenderloin roast will not be as tough, but I want it to have a nice smoky fl…
  • Hard to go wrong, that sounds really good, especially with the Black and Tan's.
  • Looks like you got all the essentials, enjoy.
  • What are the green peppers stuffed with? They look great.

  • Looks great! I love the Dizzy Pig rubs, but I'm not familiar with the Tone's Canadian Steak seasoning

  • It was very cold and windy here in Columbus, OH today, as I'm sure it was for many of you. I was laying in bed at 5:30 listening to the wind howling, and worried I wouldn't even get the Egg lit. With a couple of BGE starters and keeping the dome…
  • My neighbor across the street got the D0 as an early Christmas present yesterday as well, it is an awesome camera. I asked Santa for a Nikon S60, as my wife has a larger, more advanced digital. Enjoy the camera and time with your bride over th…
  • That looks great! i hope I'm that lucky tomorrow. I'm a bit worried about the wind and dropping temperatures here in Central Ohio, but I'm sure it will work out fine. Thanks for the tips! Cheers, Erik
  • I think you guys are right, what was left was very thin and would not pull, so I think the larger membrane was already removed. I rubbed them down with mustard and used Dizzy Dust on two racks and JH Pecan Rub on two. An old friend of mine is …
  • I guess I should have pointed out that I did this with great success just a couple of weekends ago, using many of the tips I learned here, getting almost all of them off in one piece. There is clearly membrane present, but when I get the spoon in…
  • I got a nice one from Fred's Music and BBQ last week, held four full racks in my large. It was the new and improved chrome v rack if I recall, and holds six racks. I think five would be about the max, unless you were doing half racks, but for $24.…
  • I got a nice rib V-rack from them this week and some Dizzy Dust. Looking forward to ribs tomorrow. Cheers, Erik
  • Thanks kindly. Interestingly, the first few times I used my Egg last summer that's how I did it. Like many other things, it worked so well I quit doing it :laugh: I was just reading your post on difficulty with membrane removal. I work for th…
  • I still have trouble bringing my Egg up to a low temperature. I'm doing ribs this weekend, so I only need 250 or so, but I've had problems getting the fire going enough with the vents closed this much. If I let it get going, the temp rises too muc…
  • Congratulations! What a cute looking little guy. My daughter was tiny when she was born, and I just got her 5th grade report card, and she is getting all A's. Kids and grandkids bring such joy, which is no news to you. Enjoy these wonderful da…
  • Thanks Brad, I have both of those rubs, I even considered some JH Raspberry Chipolte on one rack.
  • Those look great, thanks.

  • Rothchilds is located near Dayton, OH. I work in vocational rehabilitation in Ohio, and they have their packing done at a Goodwill facility by people with disabilities. The raspberry mustard is great on pretzels and as a pork rub. Cheers, Erik
  • Is it available in the US? It looks like good stuff. Erik
  • That is indeed some good looking grub. I need to expand my horizons.
  • I have the Egg mover as well, but I have to say I'd go with Option 3 and buy a new large for home. How happy would you be next year when you had one set up in each location and only had to move the small and some accessories. Good luck selling y…
  • Andy, this is my first summer with the Egg. If you are enjoying the smoker you have and your gas grill, you will absolutely love the Big Green Egg. I've done pizzas, nachos, tenderloins, steaks, burgers, sausages, chickens, london broils, and mo…
  • Wow, I have to agree, that's quite a setup. You could entertain a huge crowd. Well done. Erik
