We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

  • Don't know the size of your flat but by my math your cook  was around 14 hours in length....short???? Yepper....I forgot to check the LB of the brisket to guesstimate the time to cook but it worked out good.  I prefer a spicy bark but cooking it fer…
  • Looks really good. Going to try this recipe out. Did you use both AJ & Kings in the mix? I have some kings left over from last trip.  Noper, just whatever fish I catch on my trips to the gulf.....I prefer AJ cause a 35 lb AJ is easier to smoke…

  • Go with chunks/big pieces...I use alot of pecan.  Also your coal is wood too so you'll always have the smoky flavor anyways.....Good luck on your table......
  • Ouch!!!   I luckily haven't had a problem w/ my gasket yet.  I've been cooking bunches fer over 2 years now on the stock gasket.
  • I personally like my brisket to cut w/ a fork......if you pull a little early-it would still be good and easy to slice fer samwhiches!!!  I pull mine 180-190 then wrap in foil fer a bit so it continues cooking and the moisture can keep inside.   Man…
  • Man, that's a new plate setter????   Clean joker!     So you cooked it in the pan?  I've never cooked it in juice, does it also have the smoky flavor too???  I'll have to try that sometime too!  I got a brisket on the Egg right now.  Been on since a…

  •  I have a table I built from cedar planks and I drilled a starter hole then used a jig saw....Felt awful cutting into a beautiful table but it had to be done!!!
  • I have a large and have 5 in the family....I have done several large cooks and it suits me fine....XL would be great if I did big cooks all the time but unless you do and depending on how many you cook fer, judge it that way....
  • I just bought a flat (about 7-8 lbs)...I got it slathered in mustard/garlic salt/pepper/camp dog seasoning!  After cooking chicken this afternoon, she's going on!!!!  Last brisket was 18 hours!  Can't wait!!!  Love me some brisket!!! 
  • Come on...1st cook on an EGG should be dawgs/burgers.....hahaha !  Welcome to the world of cookers, when I 1st got mine, the ole lady loved it cause I started doing all the cooking!!!
  • Man!!!!  I love meatloaf and hadn't even thought about cooking it on my egg!!!  Dern it looks great!
  • I am assuming you already have a plate setter....if you do a search you can find all the accessories you'll need.   I have an electric starter, pizza stone, 3 tier grate, ash tool...but to top off the whole EGG, I did this!!! The pics are in reverse…
  • Holy cow.....I think you have enough fer a while.....My buddy who was watching my house when I went out of town used my egg (big no-no to mess w/a man's egg).  I left him no coal so he tried to burn up all my pecan!!!  hahahah  I like to keep my 20 …

  • Fast cook, and pork don't comprehend w/ me except fer chops....good luck and let us know how it goes! B)
  • Coat it w/ mustard...then what ever rub you are gonna use...It won't taste like mustard in the end....
  • Looks great.....ain't tried cedar plankin yet.... :ohmy:
  • Clogged vent holes, or the thermometer may have been obstructed. Gotta remember the thermometer has about 3 inches into the dome and ifin food is put up to it, you'll get a false reading....
  • I love stuffed jalapeños but every rack I have ever seen are VERY narrow holders. I usually get bigger 1's then wrap w/ bacon so I'm not sure they'd work.....Could you post pics of your 1st attempt w/ it???? :ohmy:
  • Heck my dealer didn't tell me how, but I faired at it purty well. I would suggest watching video's on any ???'s you have. Youtube has SEVERAL VIDEOS on any subject about the E/gg you want..... Like mentioned before, check fer vent holes clogged…
