  • Morning bob.bud: Thanks...yes, I was part of the commissioning crew of the Rivers.
  • Morning Steven:I agree...I shouldn't have cleaned it out...this is my second base with a crack, but no big deal.

  • Morning U2Pilot:Do NOT hesitate buying an EGG...this Egg is probably 10 years old and used very often and having a shell crack isn't the rule...the firebox/ring are more prone to cracking, even those don't happen part though is knowing …

  • Morning lousubcap: I did make a Med run from Feb 76 to Aug 76 only our CO was Roderick Wolfe...I was lucky enough to get back to Charleston in the middle of the run for the birth of my first son (May 4th)...however I went back to the ship three days…
  • Morning Ron: Anytime is a good time for an Egret ham!
  • Morning lousubcap: I joined the Rivers during construction in June 1973 then transferred to the Cincinnati (SSN693) in April 1977 (also under construction) thus plank owner of two ships & two initial dives with Rickover.
  • Morning bgebrent: Thanks...I like all three rubs (which is why I used a mixture), but Pineapple Head is probably first (can't wait to try some wings with the new Game On rub).
  • Morning beatarmy: Thanks...This is the way I typically do wings and have always had crispy skin.
  • Morning Kswoll: I agree that it would go good in a meaty chili...I often make chili using hanger steak cut into cubes and GAME ON would be delish on the meat while browning and then adding to the final product as it simmered!
  • Morning Ron: Sorry for your loss ... my Teflon ones are still holding up, but I don't use them very often any more...hopefully they will last a few more years!
  • Morning Jeremiah & bluebird66: Thanks!  Once I broke the platesetter I thought it might come in handy some day...most of the time I use it to bake a tator while having room for other items I want direct...
  • Morning Basscat: Looks beat me to it though...I picked up a tri-tip last evening and plan on using the new DP "Game On" tonight on it...plan on doing roasted beets for our was the Game On?
  • Morning nth78: I had mine done by a contractor (primarily because I didn't have time to do it myself)...the cabinet work was done by are located in Tampa, but ship anywhere...excellent craftsmanship and will work with you if t…
  • Morning lousubcap: I was with the Rivers from June 1973 (new construction at Newport News & part of commissioning crew) until April 1977...was on board for the Med run in 1976 (I'm old too!)
  • Morning All: I don't think these are available any longer, but were created by Chubby quite a few years ago...called "GrateMates"...there are six total pieces of metal of two heights (one takes the grid to felt level & the other about 2" abov…
  • Morning Texansurf: That umbrella doesn't help when the rain is coming in sideways and lasting for hours at a time...the Egg doesn't mind the rain, but the cook sure does!
  • Morning TTC: Looking good (actually looking great!)
  • Morning Chubby: you wouldn't be talking about the guy on the right with the "cute" hair would you???
  • Morning RollTideRob: Navy -- 1971 to 1979 -- Plank owner on SSN686 & SSN693
  • Morning Okie: As you can see I left my set up open in front, but the Eggs are sitting on the "green feet" on pavers...I haven't had any issue with the Eggs stability and it has made it easier to move them the few times I have wanted to.
  • Morning Phatchris:My wife scrubbed them, but didn't cut the skin off (she did cut away some at the top/bottom to remove the "greens", but didn't peel)...once scrubbed well just rub with olive oil and roast...the remaining skin softens up enough that…
  • Morning Jeepster 47: I am fully aware of that over-reaction here
  • Morning All:I know mine isn't quite as old as Ron's since I got the idea of the gun case for storing from him
  • Morning laserdoc85: Mike has gotten out of the gridlifter making business...sorry.
  • Morning tmac3304: Yes...done it several problems.

  • Morning XC242: Crash Hots are a "Pioneer Woman" recipe...basically cook the red potatoes (boil or in microwave, I microwave) until soft...then put them on a pan on some olive oil, smash them (use a potato smasher is what I do)...put some more olive …
  • Morning dougcrann: Only thing in the pan was the meat cubes coated with sauce.
  • Morning All:I've done these a few times and always with great results...below shows a recent cook of them...We were having a good-bye potluck lunch at work as one of the people is leaving the GAL Program (actually my office mate)...her & her hus…
  • Morning Ron: Here are a couple pictures of my in the Egg, the other with it on the pizza stone to be able to see it better
