Gee did you read all that into my post.
Wow I might have to get looked at
It could be I have some deep latent pent up mother issues I don't yet know about.
Thanks I'll look into that.
I have been to the USA many times, Great Country, Great peopl…
Nice looking pie.
You use to have to take a slow boat to Italy, or a troop train to Chicago to get a pizza that looked that good.
Except now they must still have a meat, cheese, and flour shortage over there.
Wars over folks.
Toppings are an opt…
As for green eggs that have been abducted.
I'm thinking a nation wide green alert system.
A good option would be a GPS locator.
Or attach one of those dog collars to the egg that tells you when rover crosses the boundary line.
One can only hope …
Wait to you meet the guy who packs lump around in the trunk of his car because his wife thinks he has OCB regarding his lump.
I think he already has well over 200 bags in his garage and gets blotchy red marks all over his body when he gets under 20…
Sorry for your loss, we all know how you feel as most of us have or will be in your position.
Just an observation.
I contribute occasionally to this forum, but read the forum every day.
This is one of the biggest responses I have seen on this for…
I know what your going through.
When I get under 500 lbs I start to get the shakes, dry heaves, and sweaty hands.
The wife thinks it's the dt's from drinking to much little does she know.
Its low lump lamenting.
Thank you so much for doing this, I wish I had that kind of artistic talent.
It brings back warm memories as my good wife and I did the same trip many years ago.
I'm going to get a good camera and learn how to do that, you have inspired me.
I have a BGE-XL.
I bought a lump reducer that works great.
A BGE-small for my smaller cooks.
A lump reducer is like using a furnace to heat your house that is 50% smaller.
You're going to have a cold house.
Remember the internal volume of the B…
Your so right my weekend quality time has never been better.
Kids show up more now as I usually have something on.
Thank"s for reminding me just how blessed I am to have my health, my family, and the BGE.
Very nice Bob.
I have just recently discovered NY strips.
I am getting older and just can't eat the big Porterhouses and Rib eyes anymore.
To try next time.
Mix a little olive oil, yellow mustard and lime juice, mix in a bowel then coat the outs…
Good on you.
I smoked for 35 years.
I was convinced there was no life without smoking.
I smoked a lot.
I like you said thats it, Im done.
I planned it for two weeks.
I used the three stage patch system.
It worked very well for me.
Ten years …
I bought an XL first, like you I was trying to figure it out xl or large?
What sold it for me was I convinced myself that not unlike horse power you can't ever have to much.
I decided to purchase two eggs, an Xl for the heavy lifting long and slow…
Yes, go with a fire starter, get some heat in there.
I have burned 2 sets of gaskets off my xl as well I just bought a BGE small and now they are off.
My point is forget gaskets, you will pull your hair out in bloody clumps.
My newish XL has been…
I just did a 7 bone prime rib yesterday on my gasket less XL.
It kept the temp at 225 for 3.5 hours, then another 2 hours after removal and close down.
I have given up chasing my tail as far as replacing gaskets.
I can now concern my self with my…
I'm with AZRP.
Mustard is messy.
I use a dry rub.
I keep it in the pantry, when I need some I mix it with a light olive oil to make a paste.
The oil really helps the rub's flavor penetrate the meat.
Cook right away but 24 hours in the fridge is…
Check your Lump, crappy lump, high moisture content possible, = poor BTU's.
I have a new XL and have had her up to 700 but I won't do it again, 600 will be my new 700.
The XL is a very big boy and has a lot of critical ceramic mass to heat up.
"Gee" does it get that bad?
I have 6 bags in stock, and I'm 12 miles from my dealer, god what you must be thinking.
Does it slowly take over your life?
Or one morning you wake up and you have an uncontrollable urge to order lump
BY THE PALLET.
Sure, there are a lot of repeat questions.
New eggers I think just want to get involved with the forum.
Most respondents are platinum eggers who seem to be loosing patience with new people interacting or at least trying.
If you want it to be an o…
We sometimes think the egg is only for the exotic, special occasions, or big long slow cooks.
Your post is timely.
Times are tough for a lot of folk.
Simple cooks everyday by fire was the norm long ago in simpler times.
It's Canada day…
May I suggest the name Dewey.
It was the name of one of the two drones in the best movie ever made in my opinion SILENT RUNNING.
A Bruce Durn cult classic.
Rent the movie and you will know why the name Dewey makes so much sense for your XL.
My advice is go as big as you can afford.
There is no such thing as having to much horse power, or grilling cubic inches.
If you are concerned you may use more lump than actually needed, go to
a lump reducer for smaller shorter cooks. see ceramic…
I was told to do 6 to 10 hours of lower heat cooks at around 400 to set the gaskets which I did.
Then I did Tandoori chicken at 600 legs down.
Chicken was in a pan that had a slightly raised screen so the pieces of chicken sat a quarter of an inc…
Great looking pie.
We have a black lab as well, they are such good pals.
I can see Sue is well taken care of she doesn't look a day over 6.
Could you please tell me where you got that rig that gets that pie sitting up so high.
I could really use…
