We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

  • Hummmm, wonder if Lawn Ranger could make you a custom handle for the fancy device?
  • I would go with the small. I had a small for my first egg and loved it. I traded it for a meduim some time ago and miss the portablility of the small. The medium can be transported, but it's somewhat difficult, especially by yourself. The mini i…
  • Ha, one would think that if I took the time to take picture and post this that somewhere along the line I would have noticed the Big Word "Briquettes" across the front. I opened the bag, and bingo, sure enought it is. I just saw all 100% all natur…
  • We are headed to the lake for the weekend and I will be doing a 10 lb Rib Roast for Saturday dinner and will throw on two 8lb butts Saturday night for Pulled Pork BBQ lunch on Sunday to go with the Low Country Boil. Might squeez in some Fatties and…
  • Thanks for the reply Elizabeth. I'm not sure Steaks will be in the budget, but I agree they are fantastic off of the egg. ABT's would also be great, but I have two girls age 5 and 3 that will want to be on the boat and in the water the whole time,…
  • Thanks for the reply Richard. I did do a pork rib roast on it for Christmas that everyone loved. I didn't do the "crown", but the pork came out juicy, moist and flavorful. Thanks for the input.
  • Great suggestion Frank. That way they get the sausage and biscuits for breakfast and also get to see that you can bake on it. Thanks for the suggestion.
  • Hey Joe, and welcome to the forum. Basically use the advice everyone else here has given you. I usually get the egg stabalized at the temp I want it without the plate setter in. Once stabalized and the lump has burned off a little, I add the plat…
  • Amazing Stike. I worked as a GM at a fine dining restaurant with an Italian born chef for five years and was always amazed at the stuff he could pull off. Gravlox, proscuitto, cappicola, smoked duck breast, goose liver pate, duck confit ect, and y…
  • Thanks for the heads up GG.
  • Hanger One Vodka is a great flavored vodka. They use very high end exotic type fruits or ingredients like madagascar vanilla beans or exotic lime and orange ingredients. Might be worth checking out. A little pricey though, but quality product.

  • There is a lifting device called a pot lifter that some people on the forum have showcased for moving and lowering the egg. Its just a strap devide with handles. I think someone said they are like $20 r $30 though. You could probalby google pot l…
  • Hey Dan, I have had both the small and medium, and my personal preference is the Medium. The small is nice if you want to take it with you somewhere, but it has a pretty limited cooking area. I have done 8lb butts on the medium that went for 18 pl…
  • Yeah, I guess that's the other thing I would have done different, using cedar or another type of wood that is more "outdoor" friendly. Money was the issue when I built this, but I should have went ahead with a better quality wood. That being said,…
  • You could use a large coffee can and drill holes in the bottom to make it a smaller "fire box". You can also take some type of metal, fire bricks or cast iron and section off half or part of the fire box and just use the sectioned off half to house…
  • Thanks Michael, I think I'll just give it a whirl as installed. Maybe I'll have the same good luck as you with the rope. Thanks again for the input.
  • Thanks RRP. Since it's installed, I will probably see how it works and report back to you guys. It is the hollow rope style that Carolina Q is talking about I believe. We'll see what happens I guess. If I need to replace, I'll read your instruct…
  • After you do the high temp burn, take a good size piece of aluminum foil, wad it into a ball shape and scrub down anything that the high temp burn did not get rid of. I then take a shop vac and vacuum the egg out.
  • The Woo Ring for the medium is my favorite accesorie. Link below. It allows you to use drip pans, go indirect with a raised grid, or direct with a raised grid. You can make raised grid yourself if you wanted, but this thing is really well built. …
  • Wow Stike, two of my favorite things, seared Duck Breast and mushroom rissoto. It was my favorite special we used to run when I was a GM for a Fine Dining restaurant. Your plate could definately rival that of our old chef. Made my mouth completel…
  • Looks nice, but would really like to see larger pictures. Hope you enjoy your efforts.
  • Very Impressive. Beautiful design and execution. I know you will enojoy it tremendously.
  • Al, I'm not sure anyone will come through with detailed plans for a talbe like this, but you can get some great ideas from the Naked Whiz's website if you are not already familiar with his table gallery. I'll post the link to it if you are not fami…
  • Mike, I know you were asking about skins, but something I've seen very popular as of late is homemade potato chips with a warm blue cheese drizzle and some crumbled blue sprinkled on. I imagine they would be less labor intensive and less expensive.…
  • I've seen some people cover their eggs with a "rubbermaid" container instead of a cover. I'm sure that would prevent any damage if you are worried about hail.
  • Very good article, and neat that it was somewhat about you.
  • Ageed. Don't use bleach. You may sacrafice your gasket in the process, but I'd load it up with lump and just let her rip.
