  • 4Runner. You seem as if you know a lot about the situation. 
  • It's very hard to say what caused those cracks. More than likely the moving company took all care possible and it still caused it. That Kamado is so old it is past the end of it's usable life. When fire clay dries out it is so brittle that a slight …
  • My predictions were that about 1/3 of the regulars would hate a change. 1/2 of the 2/3 would just be neutral and the other 1/2 of the 2/3 would like it. Of course anybody fairly new or brand new would not know the difference. I think that is playi…
  • Why don't you cook them the same way you did before the thermapen and record the temps when you first pull and again after the rest. Then the next time you cook them the same way you can insert your thermapen and pull them when they are the same as …
  • 5. All of the above Now you have your 5 and my vote.
  • Rob, you'll need to move it off of Vanillas site. That is what is being blocked. If y'all move it to the Big Green Egg® web server that issue will likely go away.
  • Vanilla is free open source forum software. It looks as if they are using Vanilla forums to host this. If you hover over a topic you can see the URL usually on the bottom left of your screen for most browsers. The good part of using a forum like t…
  • Well folks please feel free to head on over to my forum for a bit of relief. This is gonna a take a long time to get fixed I fear.
  • Don't discount the buffets, They have changed significantly in the past 10 years. You have to go somewhere nice but several of the buffets have amped up there game. Some even charge upwards of $100.00 a person and they are worth it.
  • Didn't he sell it to someone a year or two ago?
  • You are correct about the cliques here in the EGG® world. However they are not nearly as bad as on the BBQ forum. I've seen way more venom spewed on that forum than anywhere else and sometimes there venom spills out to real life and causes folks …
  • Do you want the real nutrition based answer? Simple carbohydrates actually make you retain and create more fat cells. It's converting water and other elements into fat cells. As a bonus they make your body physically crave even more. Welcome t…
  • When was the last time you cleaned behind the firebox? Also make sure your cut out in the firebox is lined up with the draft door. Make sure you are using dry lump. If you have good airflow and dry charcoal, the rest is just physics...or whatev…
  • I bet you could find a way to track your EGG hours on I'll look into it and maybe we can "race" lol.
  • Hincapie is the ultimate lead man. Lance has said on several occasions that he couldn't have done 7 without him. He still supports him even amid the rumors that were spread. I hope that Voeckler can hold on for 2 more days and not die in the time…
  • Plenty would have to be my response.
  • I was working on a restaurant for BGE up until things changed. I had it at 6 Larges and 4 XLs to cook a strong assorted menu, not just BBQ. The biggest challenge will be the fire marshal/insurance and the health department. In Atlanta you woul…
  • Comes from ignorant dealers and chatty users most likely.
  • Can't wait to get out there and try your classroom out on August 13.
  • You can also buy just the hardware pack from BGE. They used to just give them to you, now they charge. Not all change is for the
  • Looks like you are making hot dogs in an old gym sock?
  • I have tried it several times and that includes both cooking with him and against him at contests. I used that method for over a year on the BBQ circuit. Just make sure you don't hold to those times as absolute rules. If you would ask Myron about th…
  • I've never seen or even heard of this Auber thing. It sounds like the folks that have them seem a little skeptical about the quality of the Auber. I've been using various Guru products for 7 years and have never been unhappy. I had a problem w…
  • Bobby Flay is an idiot when it comes to everything BBQ. He's also a hypocrite because he railed on a contestant last night in that silly Next Food Network Loser contest for cooking brisket in 2 hours. He said "So it's only 13 hours underdone?!" I wa…
  • He ain't feeding his little brother in that picture unless your almost toddler is a mutant with a mouth in his chest. Looks like everyone had an awesome time and you will get to enjoy it with them one day soon I'm sure.
  • Talk to your local dealer and ask who their distributor is. The distributor can get in touch with BGE and use their resources if it goes forward.
  • Might want to just ask the folks at BGE before you use their trademarked image of the EGG without asking. Get in touch with the distributor in your area, not the dealer, and it will go much easier. Good luck with your event.
  • Why don't you try putting the plate setter with legs up and the the cooking grid and the baking stone on top of the grid? I'm not sure why everyone wants to put something under the baking stone to make an air gap when the plate setter when in the ri…
