  • My suggestions: If you have the old style ceramic coated grid take it out during the high temp burn.  New style SS grid can be left in.  Don't put the DFMT inside the egg.
  • I am sorry for not specifying the type of meat.  It is indeed beef, we get some big cattle in this area.  As you described, it has the tip folded over and tied in place.  I will go with your toothpick solution. Thank you!
  • Looks like there are wires running between the holes in the firebox.  Any ideas on what those are for?  Perhaps a long lost method to keep them from clogging, although I don't know how that would work? Also, notice the fire-ring, it has those 5 sca…
  • Thanks for the replies and suggestions. I ended up cooking them indirect at 325-350' dome, with a couple small chunks of apple wood. Coated with butter and lightly seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic and cayenne. They came out good, but no…
  • With regards to the downside of a Temperpedic, some adaptation may be required for non-sleep activities.  Those with water bed experience may have a leg up on those without.  If interested, details are here: http://finance.yahoo.com/news/sex-or-sle…
  • Some of the best advice I ever received.......... "never eat BBQ in a place where all the chairs match".
  • I experienced similar high wind weather conditions back in the Spring of 2010, with results better than yours, the only damage to my egg was a broken side table (egg mate) and a torn up gasket. Mine landed in grass, not on a hard surface. My f…
  • I've had this problem, thanks to insight from a prior post by "Grandpas Grub" my problem was solved. GG's solution is below, in italics. Here is the modified version of what I did: - open dome, remove springs. - close dome, loosen the 8 n…
  • The firebox on my 2 year old large rocked noticeably when new. Dealer replaced the FB and replacement did the same. I just live with it. It is disappointing given the price paid. I also lived with a Daisy wheel and rain cap that rocked noticeab…
  • So. A chicken and an egg are stretched out on their bed. The chicken is not smiling, big ol' scowl on her face. The egg, smoking a cig with a smile from ear to ear, says "well, I guess we answered that question"!
  • I also prefer to use the brick method. To answer your question, you can find instructions from TNW to build your own here: http://www.nakedwhiz.com/ceramicfaq.htm#raisedgrid Kind regards, dbCooper
  • Is the unmodified DFMT a new design? Specifically the star shaped washers under the two screws, why the change from regular flat washers? Also, the little handle jutting out horizontally to adjust the opening size, is that factory? For me, like s…
  • I have the Food Saver model V3460. Totally happy with it, no "cons" to report. In addition to vacuum sealing it also has some handy marinade features. Particularly like using the Quick Marinador accessory shown here: http://www.foodsaver.com/prod…
  • K-Pauls will not disappoint. The Court of Two Sisters has an excellent brunch. If you schedule allows, journey out of the French Quarter. Keep an eye out for mom-and-pop places, if they serve "meat pies" you're in the right place. The neighb…

  • I am just speculating here, but "belching" as related by the esteemed Dr. Rush perhaps had a different meaning than we would interpret today. As in intestinal belching. As I recall from my reading several years back on the Lewis and Clark expedi…
  • I realize your hinge bolts are not convenient to access, but pretty sure your solution lies with them. This post may be useful for your alignment issue: http://www.eggheadforum.com/index.php?option=com_simpleboard&Itemid=55&func=view&catid=1&id=9…
  • Thanks to all for the replies. I'll give it a try and post my impressions once we cook some that were frozen in marinade.
  • Thank you WessB for the information and URL. I have been considering a FoodSaver for some time. For that price and free shipping I had to finally order one. Kind regards, dbCooper
  • This comparison may be of interest to you, bottom line seems to be the Valet is a simpler simple. http://www.smallnetbuilder.com/wireless/wireless-features/31111-inside-story-linksys-e-series-and-cisco-valet Kind regards, dbCooper

  • I have a large, not a mini, and have noticed the same thing. In my case I know the cause. During lo and slow cooks moisture collects on the Daisy and also occasionally in the bottom slot of the bottom vent. When I open the lid this moisture on …
  • I just returned from a five day stay there on Monday. Saw the sun for maybe 3 hours the whole time, never had that happen before! Some weird low pressure thing hanging off Baja.... While not having not eaten traditional American BBQ in that tow…
  • Several months back I took a introductory glass blowing class, a single evening for 3 hours. After the glass is shaped it needs to go into an annealing oven heated to approx 900', this toughens the brittle glass by heating and slow cooling it. T…

  • Some comments from my experience: - Cook your steaks to temp, not time, a few times to get a better feel for grilling on the Egg. Also, search on here for the "trex" method and give that a try. - Lump by itself should not impart much flavour …
  • OK, you are all charcoal cookers, I can trust all of you to keep it to yourselves.....
  • This is timely, I'm cooking BBR's this weekend. Will give your method a try. Thanks for re-posting the thread. Kind regards, dbCooper
  • Thanks to all for the replies. It is much appreciated. I really like the idea of staying home in the morning to cook.... will run that by my manager! :cheer:
