It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

  • Best thing you can do is READ THIS SITE...OVER AND OVER AGAIN. There is a wealth of information and opinions. It takes awhile to get used to the new language and keep all the eggcessories straight in one's mind. I agree that the Thermapen is a nece…

  • Why "into the freezer"???? Is this a secret technique??
  • THANKS! :cheer: :cheer:
  • I have nothing to add to the great comments but it is necessary to add my thanks for this timely tribute. Somehow it seems much more personal coming from a new friend than reading another story in the newspaper. THANK YOU
  • As a newly addicted (inducted?) member of this cult (club?) my heart goes out to you. It's bad enough to be injured and unable to eat easily but NOT COOK ON THE EGG???? Hope the pain is as mild as it can be and that you heal quickly.
  • Welcome Ed! I'm relatively new myself and feel like I've found a bunch of friends I've never met. There is so much info here to help us get off to a good start. Happy eggin'

  • Checked out the website - YUM! Don't know him but the rubs do sound yummy. I'll give them a try. Thanx!
  • I'm from OlyWA - and a Greener! (and a grandmother) I have a son in Kent. Will be visiting Kent and Olympia in a couple of weeks.
  • Todd - tell me more about the Seattle rub. What is it and where do I find it? I'll be there in a couple of weeks.
  • I'm a single person w/ little disposable income. I had a sample taste from a BGE demo several years ago and have been dreaming ever since. Finally broke down and bought a Small BGE a couple of weeks ago. Boy am I sorry I didn't get one sooner. I've…
  • Thanks for all the support & ideas. I did use just one towel for starting the fire but tore it into three pieces. Will fire up again tomorrow with a full load of lump and use some foil under the ceramic cap to extinguish the coals. THANKS T…
  • Had an event to attend today then was too pooped to pop. 1st cook, phase II is postponed. Hope to get cookin' tomorrow. I will post with pics. Thanks for the notes.
  • Just realized that the char goes OVER the grate not UNDER!!! Where was my brain??? Problem solved. Will try again tomorrow. :woohoo: :laugh:
  • I just looked at ALL your pics. Boy am I hungry and feeling sorry for myself because my BGE hasn't arrived yet. :( Thanks for the pics - I always learn something...such as your pieces of copper pipe. Very clever. :P
  • THANX GRANPA!! While I have looked at many of these sites it is wonderful to have them collected for easy reference. I am now acCULTerated or is that EGGCULTerated (?)- can't leave this site alone. Now, sadly, my computer is having fan proble…

  • Dale, that looks like "feet" under the pizza stone...what are they and why? THANX Newbie Susan
  • I do searches but often just get the latest posts or headers so vague I could spend hours deciphering them and reading messages that were only vaguely related. Such as my recent post re: Pizza stone for SMALL BGE. I found all kinds of responses re:…
  • THANK YOU I'm waiting for my first BGE - a small and your pics are a grate (sic) help!
  • THANX - the first site you gave does have one small enough for the SBGE. Appreciate the help. :P :P
  • One great thing about this forum is that it is fairly easy to determine what is a MUST HAVE vs I want it... Yes, I just ordered a Thermapen. Now I am broke but very happy. :P Egg arrives in about 10 days. :P
  • Does anyone want to make a newbie a good deal on a used old model when they upgrade??
  • The BEST buy in Food Savers is at Costco. Price is usually better than other stores, they have the latest model and usually some feature exclusive to Costco. The best thing tho is their unconditional guarantee. The latest model stands on "end" tak…
  • THANKS that is helpful. The steps are concrete and so are the sides. Should be very fire proof.
