  • I don't see how the start method will affect the temp control. Any problems I've had get solved with more frequent removal of ash and little bits of lump that I suppose affect the airflow.
  • I had a few "problems" that needed to be solved at the same time. The first is that I had bought a copy of the book "Charcuterie" by Michael Ruhlman, and got an interest in smoking things, especially making my own bacon. The second is that my …
  • Any time I have something left over like that (butt, brisket, etc.) I do something inspired by the idea of Cornish Pasty - meat and vegetables in a dough pocket and baked. The dough can be a short crust (pie dough) or a puff pastry. I'd make the …
  • The meat juices were on the plate after the rest period. As far as the dog crate goes, I didn't put him there - he put himself in there, as that is his home within our home and he loves it dearly. It's actually hard to get him out of it when he f…
  • Anyway, they turned out to be the best steaks I have ever eaten, by far. And my face didn't get burned off as a result of my own stupidity, which is also a bonus. Here's the dog thinking the steaks are for him, the fool!
  • I have no intention of ever again peering down the top vent! In retrospect, it was a stupid thing to do. Fortunately nothing bad happened.
  • I'm a newbie who simply lost faith for a few minutes there, not believing that putting meat on something so incredibly hot would not inevitably lead to disaster. The meat is just finishing now in a closed-up egg (as per the BGE.com steak recipe),…

  • If you know you have untreated cedar, you can cook on it. Cedar for building things might well have fire retardant and other treatments. Great for building an egg table, not great for cooking! It is quite possible to get cheap untreated cedar.…

  • Well, now that I've had an Egg for a whole week and have cooked three meals on it, I am a certified expert, sorry, eggspert to advise you on your questions. Easiest decision: size. cooking for three, plus some entertaining. Buy the large. It is p…
  • There had been potatoes going for 30 minutes, so any initial smoke from the lump should have cleared. The smoke taste wasn't really overwhelming, but it was definitely a layer of flavour over a normally very delicate meat. 550 wasn't entirely the…
  • Thank you all for the welcome. Today was supposed to have been the day to actually cook something - but both children were home from school sick and wouldn't have enjoyed it. Then we had a thunderstorm for an hour before supper. We all love sh…
