  • My wife and I moved here in 1992. We've lived in several different communities, most recently in east Boulder. Great scenery, motorcycling, restaurants, activities... 
  • In 1994 I got a 55 gal. drum smoker that worked o.k. but I later converted it to propane and use it as a grill. In '05 I made a garbage can smoker that worker pretty well, but was difficult to load and re-fill with charcoal. I did a litte research a…
  • Big hunk'o brisket.
  • Nice looking meal. I'll need to get the Woo for my "new to me Mini." I like the Egg stabilizers in the nest. I'm still trying to figure out a good method for mine. What'd you cut your finger on?
  • In our house "going commando" means no undergarments. Our 13 yr old son says it all the time.
  • Molly, you have an email re: cooking at the DenverFest and a ? Gimme a ring, please, Larry
  • I use a Toddy coffee maker. There's another very similar one on the market- I don't remember the name. They both work well and are relatively inexpensive. They make clean-up a breeze. If you use a particularly strong coffee you can "brew" it twice. …
  • Is there a way to block posts from a particular member? I enjoy a good joke and I am told I have a good sense of humor, but I fail to understand the joy of posting something just to stir up a controversy. Kinda weird to sit back and watch members p…
  • With. Boulder, Colorado
  • I built a table for my large from plans on the Naked Whiz site, about 2 yrs. ago. If I had the forethought I might have built it bigger, to accommodate the next Egg I'm thinking about getting.
  • Thanks, it's really good. The sweet of freedom, the bitter of slavery. Really tasty.
  • I'm sure this isn't exactly as the recipe reads, but it's something like: 6 apples, cored and 1/4rd 1 cup walnuts 2 tbs honey 3 tbs red wine 2 tsp cinnamon Small handful raisins or dates Run it through a food processor to desired consistency…
  • I made a great haroset and horseradish for the Seder and a "mock chopped liver" for an appetizer. We're going to friend's Seders both nights- a big relief not having to cook, etc. A friend that attends wants to look for the "Yaphet Koto" as he c…
  • Has anyone here tried the Summit Fryer Glove? They're a bit pricey, but look really good. The fellows at Costco, who run the chicken rotisserie, wear them and speak highly of them. I'm considering a pair, but would like to find them cheaper than $32…
  • Beautiful work on that table. The finish color looks great. I had a little trouble figuring out wheel placement on my table and looked closely at yours. It looks like the wheeled legs are flush with the ground. How's it wheel around like that? Mayb…
  • I'm sorry for your loss. My thoughts are with you.
  • I'm looking to do the same tomorrow eve. for the in-laws. I searched the recipes a bit and looked on the web. I got mine at Costco, no bone. Any advice would be appreciated.
  • Happy Birthday, Molly !! Larry
  • Congrats, Molly !! I'm waiting for an email telling me how to redeem my winning ticket. Larry
  • From my experience - making charcoal 2 times, the fire under the 30 gallon can needs to be roaring hot. I don't think the offset fire in your old pit will accomplish that. I placed the 30 gallon can on some bricks inside the 55 gallon drum and had …
  • We have a couple that we've used for crab and lobster boils. I'd get on that sits low to the ground. That makes it easier to manage and handle. Look for ones with decent looking regulators and a longer hose, to keep the propane farther from the bu…
  • I've done it a couple of time, using both the 35 an 55 gallon drums. The smaller, inside the larger, with the smaller elevated to have a ripping fire under it. After about 10 hrs, sealed up the smaller can and waited. The lump was pretty light-weigh…
  • Thanks. I wonder what kind of an income he makes ? Overhead can't be "too" much. I'd think he must be licensed by the Health Department, right? All yr.-round operation? Dubah
  • Old Truck Man, I've made my own, a couple of times, used a 55 gal drum with a 30 gal drum inside it, on a couple of fire bricks. Kept a fire going under the 30 gal, for hours and hours, then sealed it up and let it cool. It might have been that the…
  • I've stayed, 2 times, at the YMCA in Estes, both as a chaperone for our son's class, and while it was a bit "pedestrian" the accommodations were nice enough, the property was beautiful and the food wasn't too bad, either. Lots of hiking trails, hor…
  • There's no reason why not, but if it's the model w/o the hose you'll be pretty close to the charcoal & flame. Just be careful of sparks, etc. There should be plenty of lighting power - what gas are you using - looks like it'll work with propane…
  • Spring Chicken, thanks for the pics and the links, they help, a lot. Food looks great on the griddles. Which model is that which you're using on the L BGE? You're help is much appreciated, Larry

  • From personal experience and from reading a bit on the subject, Thompson's is the pits. Go with a good quality spar or marine finish.
  • Hi Molly, I saw that ad this a.m., too. I'd be in for a bag if you want to get only a portion of the 200 lbs. Let me know, Larry
  • Hi, Denver/Boulder, CO area: $579 for Large Nothing else include, except assembly. Purchased after Denver Eggfest, last Sept.
