  • Norah Grace, your chicken looks every bit as good as any I have ever seen on this forum. Congratulations on your first Big Green Egg cook. We're all looking forward to seeing your next one.
  • @Mickey is our resident turbo rib guru. Finally made your Dead Guy sauce. LOVED it!!
  • tarheelmatt said: To those that say they are the same cut, they are not.   A "shoulder" is just that, the whole shoulder.  It includes the butt and the picnic.   A "butt" is just that, the butt, but usually cut into two for packaging and sell…
  • I assume you are talking about these two cuts, opposite ends of the shoulder... I prefer the Boston butt. Can't tell the difference in taste and it's easier to trim, so more bark. Also, the bone's easier to remove when cooked.
  • @Mickey, Now THAT... ...looks nice! So much better than your carbonized wangs! Love the bacon touch. Just picked up a couple of game hens yesterday, Will have to add a slice or two. BTW, I get two meals from a game hen. Wound up with seven from t…

  • @stike pours ice water from his cooler into a hot egg when he wants to cool it quickly at a tailgate. Not only does it get wet, but there's the thermal shock issue that apparently isn't an issue. 
  • I still can't believe the number of people who buy this stuff! I have an old maverick, for unnecessary remote temp crap. Haven't used it in a good 5 years. Don't waste your money. Spend it on a T-pen. Or meat.
  • Those are the skimpiest chops I have EVER seen! Sides look great though. 
  • Just saw this. Man, that's a fine lookin' plate!! Thanks for the recipe!!
  • Was just there, but haven't bought lump from WM in a couple of years. Home Depot sells RO and I have yet to get a bag of dust from them. Unlike WM.
  • NPHuskerFL said: AR is legit and Tom of CGS is awesome...  I certainly never meant to imply otherwise. I have never heard a bad word about Tom, CGS or the products. As I remember it, we had a brief email "conversation" a few years ago. I…
  • Hans61 said: @Carolina Q is that a XL ? Nope. Large.
  • When my platesetter dies, I'll use my $14 weber grid and three carriage bolts. That's what I use for raised direct now. All I have to do is stick a pizza stone on the lower grid and I'm good to go. Can probably use the broken PS for that matter, dep…
  • BulletGrillHouse said: Carolina Q said: You could cut it into thin strips and wear it... ... but then, that's been done on here. Nothing personal, but Gaga looks better in meat. BTW, do you know what the very first hit is if you do …
  • maso said: @Carolina Q do you have a link to those bags? Last time, I bought these (qt size). http://www.touchofhomefoods.com/vacmaster_storage_bag.html  Used to be The Sweet Attack or something like that. They changed names. I see they …
  • I don't like the rolls. Maybe other sealers are different, but mine doesn't have a roll dispenser so I have to cut each bag with a knife or scissors, seal one side and then proceed as usual. I like qt size bags and usually buy 200. Rolls really aren…
  • I miss my mini. I was pretty much using it exclusively until my dog knocked it over. Yes, I was devastated. Now, I just have my large. I've owned it since 2009 and I have never wished I had bought an XL. Not once. In fact, sometimes I wonder - if I …
  • You could cut it into thin strips and wear it... ... but then, that's been done on here. Nothing personal, but Gaga looks better in meat. BTW, do you know what the very first hit is if you do a google image search for guy wearing bacon? Go ahead,…
  • THEBuckeye said: It takes me as long as it takes depending what I am cooking.  This. And what I'm cooking it ON. Last night I cooked a couple of chicken thighs in my air fryer. Veggies on the stovetop. I was finished eating in the time i…
  • The only Phoenix restaurant I've ever heard of is Chris Bianco's Pizzeria Bianco. He doesn't use an egg - why would he, he's baking pizza! - but if I'm ever in Phoenix, you'll find me there.
  • Great idea for fests, even for knife snobs. No one wants to lose a $200 knife at a fest, yet everyone needs a sharp knife there.
  • currycoma said: At least yours showed up in one piece.  I ordered one and it showed up in 3 pieces.  I was sent another ant it was broken too.  I eventually just used JB Weld, and and fixed both.. 2 for one! Don't be surprised when it …
  • WeberWho said: I don't think I've ever seen 38 likes in a post. Rightfully earned in every aspect! Picture perfect  LOL, I couldn't remember whether or not I had clicked Like, so I just did. Like count went to 37!  I guess I had! Needles…
  • Absolutely beautiful! But I'm sorry, every time I see this thread title, I can't help but wonder whether or not your crazy uncle was invited... 
  • RRP said: Carolina Q said: I have a 17". Only used it a few times, but it just doesn't seem to get hot enough for a proper sear. Which is the only reason I wanted it! Tired of smoking up the house. Or lighting the egg for a 2 minute so…
  • bgebrent said: Carolina Q said: It looks like there are a couple of hairline cracks. Or the beginnings of. I'd exchange it. You think that etching puts it at risk for cracking? I'm talking about these.
