  • Hi Jerry, Im in Fond du Lac. 
  • This company( makes a jerky that uses the Carolina Reaper pepper called Fire and Ice.  I guess its too new to show up on their website. I bought some of it at a boat show in Milwaukee in March and it was ver…
  • As one of the previous posters said, use kitty litter. The only thing I do different is I sprinkle it on and then step on it and twist my foot. Basically grind it in, then sweep it off.  Works great!  
  • Fond du Lac, WI by way of Stillwater,OK by way of Anadarko, OK. Every year, 60,000 Sooner fans head to Dallas, TX for the Red River Rivalry. The average IQ for both states goes up 10 points. Go OSU Cowboys!
  • I'm not a big fan of Gates. Way over rated IMHO. Authur Bryants is good. The one on Brooklyn street is an experience. There is one in the Ameristar Casino that is good but doesn't have the same "interesting service".  A local KC guy took Anthony Bou…
  • I do them just as everyone suggested except I like to brine them before cooking. Dissolve 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup kosher salt in 1 qt hot water. Add 2 teaspoons whole peppercorns, 1 teaspoon granulated garlic. Then add 1qt ice cubes. Put in chi…
  • As stated before, once the temp gets too high, it's hard to bring down because all of the ceramic material is acting as a thermal mass and is giving off heat, keeping the temp up. A method that I have used is to spritz the outside of the egg with wa…
  • I use a Tormek and I sharpen my Henkels Chef's knife to 18* on each side and my Shun to 16*. The Shun has harder steel and can take the thinner edge. Use a good steel between sharpenings but don't use a "sharpening steel". You only want to use a ste…
  • Do a google search for "Dan the Man Everglades Airboat Charters". You might take a look at some Youtube videos of his tours, they are pretty good. If you take one of his tours, tell him Brad Moser from Anadarko sent you. Brad
  • I ran into the same issue when I built my egg table. I had inset the paver into the shelf so I didn't like the idea of adding another paver, so I raised the shelf that the egg sits on. I didn't even take the egg out of the table while doing it. It w…
  • Lets hope it's dry this year!
  • Someone posted not too long ago about it, sort of gauging the interest. If one is held in the Summer of 2012, count me in!
  • I'm sorry for your loss. You had a beautiful dog. This is my favorite picture of Rowdy Since your dog loved the snow, I thought I would include this pic. Rowdy loves the snow also. And this is Josie when she was about 6 months old. …
  • Looks like the wife and I will be living there this time next year, in the Fond du Lac area. Going to be quite a change from the Oklahoma weather that I'm used to. If that first winter doesn't kill me, you can count me in for an eggfest :laugh:
  • That looks great! I love me some roasted garlic!
  • Thanks everyone for the kind words. It weighed 5.0lbs. After the initial 20minutes at 500*, it cooked another 40minutes at 350* to make it up to 130*, then it rested for 15 minutes, tented, to come up to 142*. The crust was awesome. @Big Daddy- tha…
  • I used granite tile on the top of my table and I cut the curves with an ARCUS blade in a circular saw. It worked great. I had to set up a jig to cut the correct radius but it wasn't too difficult. I also rigged some tubing to be able to squirt water…
  • Hey Hillbilly, I don't mean to hijack the thread but I cut my granite tile top radius with an ARCUS blade in a circular saw. Pictures are in the eggtable forum. Do a google search for ARCUS blades and check them out. I was very impressed with the …
  • Very nice! Is it open on the back side to be able to adjust the air flow? Was the stone very hard to work with?
  • Thanks for the compliments. Aaron, I didn't use a tablesaw at all. It was all with a circular saw, radial arm saw (but a miter saw would work just as well) and a drill. You shouldn't need any other tools but a few clamps will come in handy to use as…
  • Hey Darian, yeah, it's me :laugh: . In all fairness, I have to say that the GIANT margarita that was being passed around scared me. I knew I'd better get out while I could still drive. It was nice visiting while I did hang around though. I have to s…
