  • The Cen-Tex Smoker said: This is Myron Mixon's recipe. You lost me at Myron...  As for saucing NC Q, I pull it and then add eastern NC vinegar sauce to all of it. I don't go overboard. Mix well. Serve and provide more sauce for those …

  • jtcBoynton said: It doesn't happen often but the ceramic could crack and dump a load of hot coals.  What happens then? Wood house? Wood deck?  Need to balance the possible consequences with how you setup and use your egg. Nah, that could n…
  • setdahook said: What's the reasoning on that? I wouldn't think any embers would pop as soon as the lids shut and I am there the whole time at start. Maybe I am not thinking something out. At the very least, you will have black smudges on y…
  • I'd worry more about the house.
  • That'll work. I assume you're going to put a pizza stone or steel on top of that grid? You really don't need the grid.
  • I did that once, maybe even 2-3 times. In 8 years. Been a long time. Not much ash back there. Maybe because I stopped cleaning out the little holes in the firebox. Anyway, temp is always stable. If it was any better, I might start thinking I had a …

  • WeberWho said: @KiterTodd We had a family friend who worked for a major potato chip company here in the Twin Cities. They would package under the name brand bags until 4pm. Anytime after 4pm they would switch over to the "off brand bags". I alway…
  • I like their chicken thighs. They're priced about the same as my regular store, but buying at ALDI often saves me a trip to the other store. Gotta watch the sodium though. Thighs are ok, breasts can be a bit high. Bought a 3 lb chuck roast a coupl…
  • RRP said: Yo, Michael...remember when you gave me a raft of sh*t for posting this picture of 3 packs (24) Pearl's I ordered from them? Bet my shipping cost equal to or even less than your cost of driving 40 miles, wear and tear,  etc etc etc! …
  • Looks great!! I could eat salmon every night!
  • I always suggest NONE when people ask about accessories. At least in the beginning. Just play around with your egg and see what you think you're going to need instead of listening to one of us. We may love accessory X and it may turn out to be worth…
  • fishlessman said: after all these years i just buy whats locally available and convenient for me, mostly cowboy, nothing wrong with it That's all I've ever done. Holyoke is about 30 miles away so I've bought WG a couple of times. Last t…

  • RRP said: Focker said: Smokeware should be OEM IMO. One of many parts, where BGE falls behind. Actually Matt had offered the product and patent to BGE corporate, but instead he was given a "come to Jesus" meeting wi…

  • RRP said: No offense, Michael, while this first attempt was ok and Pat thought it was great which I knew she would as I swear she could eat 5T of salt with her Wheaties or anything else she can pour salt on! Perhaps I over cooked/burnt/whatever…
  • Judy Mayberry said: I found a GREAT tip on peeling garlic in an old French cooking cookbook. It will change your life! Soak the unpeeled cloves in warm water (I used hot water) for a few minutes. No more stickiness, just cut the tips off the cl…

  • That's Royal Oak (the HD stuff). The Rockwood snobs on here will tell you it sucks, but it's fine. Rockwood is popular too, but too expensive, IMO. Wicked Good is equally expensive (and equally good). If you live near Holyoke Mass, it's affordable (…

  • HeavyG said: Are there any aftermarket vents besides the Smokeware? Just curious. I have this. Cost $6 when I bought it.I use it about once a year when I get caught in a downpour. Fits over an open top vent or over a DFMT. Basically, an…
  • I rarely use anything at all. When I do, it's the standard cast iron DFMT. Works just fine.
  • Darian, my friend, you're gonna be the death of me! This afternoon, I made the  40 mile round trip to Mass just to buy a 2 pound package of eight Pearl 1/4 lb 7+" long natural casing beef franks. Closest place I know of. Never had a SRF dog, nor wil…
