  • See my above post please...
  • I am monitoring the egg temp right now and waiting to put the food probe in since I am doing 3 butts roughly 4-5 lbs each. Thought about 4-5 hours in I'll pith the prob into one of the butts. Is that "ok"?
  • I'm making mine today for Monday...just keep in fridge?
  • was going to cook it tomorrow for eating on Monday.  Is that "ok" to do that?  Tomorrow really the only open day I have this weekend. Mustard sound interesting!  Does a stronger mustard like spicy make a difference?  Also see differen…
  • Has anyone ever used/heard of this stuff?  I wrote the company to ask who made it, but haven't gotten a response yet.
  • Well, have to confess, I didn't go to UT, but been a fan for over 40 years.  We need some good news...
  • So far, $22 is the cheapest I've found WGC.  I did find out that a local healthfood store, The Turnip Truck, sells Nature's Grilling Hardwood and Woodstock Lump Coal, but don't know much about them.  The Nature's Grilling Hardwood Blend is $5.19 for…
  • Cowboy?  Can you get that retail?  I found some places here in town that carry WGC and of course the BGE brand. Volntitan - what's the cheapest you have found WGC and BGE in Nashville and where? Haven't searched alot yet, but Embers in Cool Spri…
  •  Nothing better than having to tell the wife "no...I can't go shopping/visit your mother/clean today.  I'm cooking dinner for everyone" and then going to the beer fridge and getting a nice IPA or cracking open big stout or sour, turni…
  • Cowboy?  Can you get that retail?  I found some places here in town that carry WGC and of course the BGE brand.
  • Well, I was mostly looking at the user review ratings, but as long as it lights and lasts, I'm good.  Can't beat the price.  One question about it "smokey" of a flavor is it.  I like to smoke on the Egg, but wife doesn't like huge smoke…
  • Damn...I was getting ready to pay $22 for Wicked Good WW here in Nashville.  I need to keep shopping I guess!  That price at Sam's is really good, but I thought Best of the West was a below avg. charcoal according to reviews.
  • Just give me a fine craft beer while cooking and I'm good...
  • Just about to order a 732 from Amazon.  If it is crap, can someone recommend a better alternative in the $50-60 range?
  • Don't worry about that tasty beverages.  I have 2 beer fridges in the garage and one with a tap...
  • I guess only time I would use it for "direct" would be to get the temp of the grill.  Honestly I do almost everything with the ceramic indirect plate in place.  I'll probably line it with heavy duty aluminum foil for extry (I'm from the south) prote…
  • OK...I just came out and asked the wife if I could spend the money on the ET-732 and she said fine (she is awesome wife).  So before I order from Amazon, is that the one I should get now that my budget has been approved?  Hate to order it just to fi…
  • Well, called my dealer that my father spent alot of money at (got one for me and my sister as well as himself for gifts)...bought 3 tricked out eggs with the cart.  All large.  Told them about the thermostat and they couldn't be less interested in h…
  • Nevermind...the ET-85 isn't remote!
  • I think the warranty on the temp gauge is only a year.   Anyone use the ET-85 by maverick?
  • Good to know about the ET-7...will def. mark that off my list.  I am concerned about the range of the 73.  100 ft. is fine, if it truly is 100 ft. and will read in the house, but if not, makes the remote part kind of useless.
  • Just not sure I can justify the extra $25 or so in cost.  Also someone suggested the Oregon Scientific AW 131 which I can get for $35
  • Thanks folks.  I did see where Amazon has a Maverick ET-73 for $32 and ET-7 for $38 that can monitor meat and inside.  I know Maverick is a top brand, but anyone have any pro/con for these products?
  • you are saying it might just need an adjustment?  I'll give that a try.  I have one of the old "non tel tru" gauges I believe since the egg is 3-4 years old.  On the plus side, the place that wanted to charge so much for one did have W…
  • Thanks. I call the wife and had her tap both vents open slightly and call if it has an effect. Should I move the digital probe or is it ok where it is?
  • I trust my digital to a point I guess. I actually have the probe laying on the top grill (using a 2 tier grill grate). I was going to put it thru the top vent, but thought it would be a better reading on the grate. Wife called and said the temp w…
  • I may have misread...I thought they all said no need to add wood. like pecan for mild smoke flavor with pork?
  • Yep! Live in Franklin, TN.
