  • WOW!!! I am blown away by that fantastic music. Thanks for hooking us up with the site, Max. Looks like I need to check some previous episodes of Live from Daryl's house, but I don't think much could top Booker T. Uglydog
  • I was getting off a plane at Quonset Point NAS, RI after completing a sub patrol. Our crew left the boat in Rota, Spain. Thanks for the reminder. Uglydog
  • I use King Arthur Bread Flour; recently for pizza I used half KA Bread Flour and half Animo Caputo Tipo 00 flour. Both are high gluten flours. Hope it turns out good. My personal experience is my pizza making skills improve with experience, therefor…
  • You did good, Mickey. If those boys sitting on the Salado City Council attended last years gathering, then approval for next year's Eggfest should have been a slam dunk done deal. Looking forward to another great time. Uglydog
  • Julie, I have no idea who this Mr. Coy is, but it seems as if you may have falsly accused him of something he may not have done. If you didn't witness the event, how can you be certain who the perpetrator is? Did you ever consider the possiblity th…
  • Faith, great narrative and wonderful pics of a good time. I hope you took some Vermont Maple Syrup home with you. Once you get hooked on that stuff, there's no going back to Aunt Jemima's or Mrs. Butterworth's. It's kinda like Egging- makes you a fo…
  • I have enjoyed the opportunity to participate in this morale boosting event, and Chris has done a fantastic job of posting pictures of his cooks and of the soldiers who are serving with him. As Elizabeth suggested, hang around here. Consider even go…
  • Jason, congratulaions on your first competition. Your preparation and training paid off well. Were you competing against Fred's team? Love your logo, and that looks like a mighty fine trailer for hauling your stuff to competitions. Uglydog
  • Nice looking za's you did. The pics helped a lot and gave me some thoughts about doing multiple pizzas. Give me a shout when you need someone to run some quality control tests on your pizzas. Uglydog
  • Elizabeth, that's a fantastic way to support the troops. I'm certain it will be well appreciated. Uglydog
  • Mickey, I don't refer to it as "spending my extra money on a Harley." Rather, it is called "wise investing in a depreciable asset." It's all a matter of terminology. Uglydog
  • I have successfully frozen home made dough, then let it thaw and do a second rise. If the dough doesn't seem to want to stretch correctly, let it rest for 5 minutes and return to stretching it again. I have tried several different things with home m…
  • Russ is certainly deserving of the support of the Egghead Community. He very generously supplied some lump for the Captain in Afghanistan who needed an egg so he could cook for his troops. Russ also supported the Salado Egghead Gathering in a genero…
  • I have been getting Royal Oak here: http://www.therestaurantstore.com/131/store-profile.html It's really in New Castle, DE and is about $10.99 for the 18 lb bag. Anyone can shop there- no membership or other requirement. There may be other Restaura…
  • Mickey, I didn't think you could top the Salado Egghead Gathering, but this is way over the top. Thanks for your efforts to put this all together. You are a class act, right in there with many other eggheads. Count me in for some cash. Uglydog
  • Stike said an awful lot with very few words. You two must admire each other.

  • That pizza is as round as a home made pizza is supposed to by. You should call your pizzas "free form." I have been told, on good authority, that the dough should be formed by hand, not with a rolling pin, becuase you want the air bubbles in the edg…
  • I can't answer your question about mixing by hand vs. a bread machine, but I would suggest you just try doing it by hand. If you have a kitchen mixer, mix the dough for about 15 minutes, until it pulls away from the bowl. If doing it by hand, again …

  • Leroy, your video was fantastic. It really took me back to Salado and the great Eggfest Mickey produced. Love your choice of background music. Thanks for all the work you put into the video. Now we will expect a similar effort for all future eggfest…
  • Very nice dinner, and a great gesture to help the girls out. I'm not sure who got the best end of that deal: the girls, for such a delicious and well prepared meal, or you for having the chance to spend time with the girls and get to know them all a…
  • Faith, that looks awfully tasty. Adding the chicken and basil, and using fresh Jersey asparagras, would put it way over the top. Send me a plate of that stuff, please. Uglydog
  • The setup that is frequently used for pizza is to place the platesetter, legs down, on the firebox. Put the three little egg feet on the platesetter, then put the BGE pizza stone on the feet. The egg feet provide an air gap between the platesetter a…
  • Rebecca, congratulations on winning such a fantastic prize. I found it very enjoyable to read about the table, and see the pictures of the food you served to Clay and Diana. Clay is certainly a master craftsman, not only in wood, but also in his coo…
  • Tammy, can't help you with OKC, but I can relate this story from Salado: I needed a platesetter badly at Salado. I mentioned it to somebody near the registration area, and a rep from the Ace Hardware reached over to some magical area and handed me a…
  • Thanks for the post, and for the specifics about removing the mud vein. The before and after pics helped a whole lot. I did salmon last night and had some questions about removing the vein. This post answered my questions for the next time I do salm…
  • This dilemma reminds me of the quotation: "The man with one watch knows what time it is; the man with two watches is never quite sure what time it is." The other posts about calibrating your dome thermometer are correct. Uglydog
  • Tammie, thanks for posting the pics from Salado. It sure brings back fond memories of a great weekend. I hope Mickey forgets how much work he put into it before next year, so he will do it again. Great meeting you and all the other eggheads. Ugly…
  • Hoss, the best way to sell a house is to have the prospects see you cooking in it. It may not be in the Raltors' book of approved selling techniques, but it sure worked for me. Uglydog
  • Julie, you posed a great question that has generated a ton of interesting responses. I always enjoyed cooking, but since getting my large BGE I have assumed a greater portion of the cooking responsibilities, although my wife is a very good cook in t…
  • I'm definitely getting ready; got my Conch Republic Passport all ready for the customs guys for when I enter Texas, got stuff all packed up and sent to Spring Chicken, now I'm working up an appetite for some good Texas egged grub. See ya in Salad…
