  • I'll be there around 6.
  • I'm look at this picture again and How the heck are you going to move that?
  • No moisture loss with lower temps. No worries there Of course there is. If you cook anything there is going to be moisture loss. Water evaporates.
  • I've done this and have not had much luck with lower cooking temps compared to say 250 or so. It seems like after a certain point, the meat starts losing moisture. That doesn't meat it will be "jerky" but it may benefit from sauce. I find that the s…
  • If it's a good cut, it really doesn't matter what temp you cook it at. If you do it lower (225-250), you'll have an more even color throughout instead of a "target" look to it. If you do it hotter (350), it will cook faster and likely be a little mo…
  • I've done it before and really enjoyed it. The skin got very smokey (beyond editable) but the meat was really tender. I think high heat chicken is a little bit more most though not as tender and I usually cook it that way because of that and because…
  • You are my hero...and not just because of the table. The rest of your garage tells me you are a guy with great hobbies.
  • Like Dizzy Pig, but Simply Marvelous rubs are the best IMO. X2. I also like Yardbird and Bovine Bold.
  • That's good to know, Jason. Does that include adhesive and instructions?
  • Gaskets have a 1 year warranty now, starting March 1st, 2012. Personally, I think your dealer is talking out his ass. I didn't know that but it doesn't really help me considering I bought the egg in Feb. Regarding the dealer, perhaps he was talk…
  • well, they are giving the upgrade to anyone who asks so that does not make a whole lot of sense. Not anyone. 30 day limit. Otherwise I wouldn't care.
  • If it's for a large or XL, I would strongly consider getting a nest and a handler. I built the table for my medium because I hate the way the mediums fit in the nests and how low they are to the ground.   For all practical purposes my bge table wa…
  • A dealer told me they haven't upgraded because if they fixed the gaskets, then they can't sell you the upgrade. I give him points for candor, but it still pisses me off. 
  • Thanks James. Does he sell them or something? Or would he just tell me where to get them?
  • $650 for a med.  Screw that. Eggs are more expensive in Canada.
  • I love Costco meats! Having said that, lately beef quality seems to be down around here across the board. All the choice beef I run across looks more like select did a year ago. 
  • Wondering what Pez thinks about tire wear. If the tire didn't come off on the road as it wore down but instead gummed up so that you could no longer drive your car because they were stuck to the road, I could see your point.  I stir my coals bef…
  • for convenience, it's jackson's near love field.  for a dealer who knows the egg and grilling biz, it's Alec at gold metal pools in frisco on Preston, near hooters for cold beer.  oh and don't tell alec griffin sent you, tell him the denton guy sent…
  • stike, What size egg do you usually use for low and slow? I had this problem primarily with my medium. I'm wondering if this is why it isn't as universal.
  • Pops,Like I said before, I think the medium is the perfect size for two people and I use it the VAST majority of the time. However, there are a couple things to think about. If you are going to do ribs, you are going to have to cut them and if you a…

  • You have to stir mix the previously burned lump to get the ash out, as well as the very small pieces of lump.  Big Green Egg sells an Ash Tool for that very reason.  Then add more lump to fill.  That is what I do, and have never had an issue heating…
  • Hey PEZ ---get a life It's not like the TV and you just hit the remore for satisfaction--- Get a life? really? Why? He has a valid point...otherwise high-Q grates and wiggle rods would not exist.
  • I have an xl and a medium. There are 2 of us and a 4 year old. The medium is the perfect size for my family. The XL is the perfect size for everybody else that comes over to see my family.
  • I agree with you, Hillbilly-Hightech,The only thing I disagree with is the need to call in and have them explain it. The warranty is published now. It's clear. It means EXACTLY what it says if you put other parts in the egg, the warranty is void. Th…
  • I would think the warranty that counts is the one that was in place when you bought your egg. No, they are changing the deal. Otherwise it would have clearly said some version of "older eggs warranty terms will be grandfathered in...yada, yada, …
  • Not sure the wiggle rod will void the warranty as otherwise by that analogy any cooking utensils that are not BGE would also void it, you can't tell me I can only use their fish slice or tongs? According to their warranty you can not use "any p…
  • If you use a wiggle rod, it will void the warranty. 
  • Surely they don't intend to enforce this? Wow, I was planning on buying another egg this summer. I really wanted a new medium but I'll be looking at other brands now that it seems like they are looking for excuses to get out of their warranty. If I …
