There are two very delicious food holidays coming up that we wanted to share with you all because cheese and guac deserve to be celebrated! Guacamole Day is on September 16th and Cheeseburger Day is on September 18th. Happy cooking EGGheads! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

  • Last year was our first fest ever, and of course as tasters. We're going to cook this year, and really looking forward to it. While I was polite, I must confess that I ASSumed the cooks were paid. At the time, I had no idea cooks had to PAY to …

  • I believe Corning Ware intended for the oven is safe. HOWEVER, Pyrex is not. (Trust me, Pyrex does not hold up for use with the Egg. Don't ask me how I know!)

  • Spring Chicken, Flying into Dallas Fort Worth airport, then driving about two hours to Wichita Falls, TX to Midwestern State University. I've been flying back/forth for school a little over a year now. I fly in January and May, and then I don't…
  • Thanks, Gwen. I'm going to call the airlines and the airport today to check into that. When I called the first time, they said they did not make those arrangements in advance. But, after talking to people, it seems they do (or at least did!). …
  • Molly, thanks for the inspiration and encouragement. I appreciate it! I am using a knee walker to get around with, because I have to go to work. I can get around, it is not easy, it is physically exhausting. I've been trying to check the forum v…
  • Not worried about the pins, I can't get around without the walker scooter thing and it's mostly metal. How will I make it through the metal detector with my wheels? Try to balance or hop on one foot isn't very safe, certainly don't want to fall ag…
  • Thanks, Jay! Kasey has been very good about firing up the Egg solo and helping to keep us fed. I WILL be walking by the Fl Egg fest, or :woohoo: I'll be crazy by then
  • Thanks, LC! I'm scheduled to have the external pins removed on 1/17, so I hope to improve significantly after that. The new fracture will need 6-8 weeks, but that should be well healed by the Fest. We had a blast last year and are really lookin…
  • Great! Glad to hear it! We'll look for you guys. :)
  • Thanks Jay! How's your knee? Are you going to be able to make it???
  • Bill, We tried to go the cheap route and bought the stainless bolts/washers for the homemade route. It was a complete PITA. It was constantly falling off the lip of the fire ring and dumping food in the coals. When we would go to clean the gri…
  • OUCH! I wanted to do both feet at once and get it over with, but the surgeon said no since I'd be completely bed-ridden for up to 16 weeks that way. He said too risky for blood clots and atrophy. I'm glad I didn't did both, I couldn't imagine d…
  • I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. Our Basset is 11, and I am dreading the day I have to make a similar post. Our thoughts and prayers are with you!
  • Great looking turkeys! Glad to see you're back in front of the Egg!
  • I haven't had much luck with the gravy either. I ended up using some of the stock from the giblets and adding a little of the pan drippings instead. This year's gravy turned out fantastic! I was getting a really dark, bitter, burnt tasting grav…
  • Same here! I have enough for three batches of soup. I'm really looking forward to it!
  • Looks great! That plate looks very familiar! (I have that set, as well!)
  • So relieved to hear you're doing ok! Thanks for the update!
  • Richard, Please share your "shield" creation!!! How did you afix the shield, what is it, etc. Please!?!??!
  • Sorry to hear yesterday was such a rough day. Here's hoping today is better! It's going to be a rough road, but in the end, one that was well worth it. Gentle hugs to you both!
  • Thank goodness he's ok! I was getting worried when I didn't see an update last evening. I hope you both get to feeling better soon! Speedy Recovery!
  • Wow! Both meals look awesome! I'm not crazy about Guinness, but that looks good enough for even me to try! You'll be eating well during your recovery, that's for sure! Our thoughts and prayers are with you for a speedy recovery! We're not far…
  • Thanks! We used the spider legs up and the cast iron to sear some pork chops tonight. Then, we dropped the raised grate on (our rigged one, still waiting on the fancy Woo Extender from the Ceramic Grill Store) and finished them right away. That w…
  • Does the other way work just as well? Willing to try it, since it sounds so much faster and easier, just curious if the results will be as good?
  • 2fategghead: Sounds like an interesting technique. I thought I read some where that the 20 minute rest while the egg was cooling down helped the meat relax after the sear??? BigGreenGregg: Leftovers look awesome! Wish we could have seen the f…
  • We chose to get one in the box for ease of transport. If it were assembled, we would have had no way to safely get it home. It was so easy to haul the boxes in separately and put it together ourselves. We have since built an Egg Crate so that w…
  • We ordered the spider and the wok about two weeks ago. We have enjoyed the heck out of the wok! We just picked up a 13 inch cast iron grate and will be searing some steaks in the next day or so. That said, I must confess that our current method…
  • Awesome looking meal, Jay! (As usual!) You'll be in our thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery after the knee replacement. Physical therapy will be painful and challenging, but also your best friend in getting full use out of the new knee. …
