  • First, Very Nice! You may want to consider using fire bricks (or some kind of stone) under the egg. Though it looks like you have more clearance than the typical ceramic feet provide but still... 
  • Thank you all for your suggestions. I'll let you know how it turned out!
  • Clean and beautiful! Looks a lot like mine (but prettier). Cedar is probably the best option if you live in NW. What are you going to set the egg on? I used the same scheme used by Naked Whiz table.
  • We upgraded our kitchen last year and after searching for almost a month, we finally settled on  Franke ORX100. We also got some a couple of accessories. Including the "shelf grid" (perfect for rinsing). check it out:…
  • Isn't chili too acidic for the first cook in a new cast iron pot (even a seasoned one)?
  • stemc33 said: Some of the best things in life are made/created from accidents. Yeah, that what my mom used to tell me all the time. Took me a while to figure out what she meant.
  • I agree. This is why I don't understand why there is not an outcry from Christians for all the abuse committed by those pedophile priests and the cover up by the church.
  • I thought you are talking about free 1394 adapters. (really) shows the kind of nerd I am.
  • Maybe we should start an OT thread on where our kids to go school. me, Son in University of Washington: Computer Science Daughter in University of Chicago: Medical School
  • You need to move the load that is currently supported by the "planks/boards" to the peripheral "beams". For that you need to make a kind of "box" where the egg goes. In short, the load should be carried from one set of "beams" to another set of "be…
  • Great cooks and great pictures! What kind of sausage are you using in Paella? I have everything ready to do it for the first time but I was concerned I can't get the authentic Spanish sausage from a reliable source.
  • your problem most likely has to do with the cut of the meat. I use (at the minimum) sirlion and preferably rib eye prime.
  • looks like pit pal doesn't support Windows devices. Anybody knows where I can find the documentation about the xml file that Cyber Q outputs?
  • By the way, just because a company -starts- with carbon copying another (which in the case of egg, there is really not much to carbon copy from), it doesn't mean they cannot innovate. If KJ has stolen something in "Divide and Conquer", it is from th…
  • cazzy said: mrdnks said: I am not sure why you are on an EGG forum asking about other brands?Why dont you go to their forum and ask questions. If this offends you, oh well. Bye bye Well, I have an egg and I consider it my r…
  • I have a large. My next one will be bigger and another brand. Wife does not like the idea of mini. Her reaction a couple of times I brought up buying a mini: "You bought a hibachi that you have never used once."
  • mrdnks said: I am not sure why you are on an EGG forum asking about other brands?Why dont you go to their forum and ask questions. If this offends you, oh well. Bye bye Well, I have an egg and I consider it my right to post here. …
  • No cat thread? am I the only one who's got a cat?
  • Kirkland, WA
  • Cats for the win. (I have nothing against the dogs though).
  • JohnInCarolina said: Along these same lines, the NBC Olympics site friggin blows. Agreed, hard to find replays and live streams. It used to be a lot better for previous Olympics.
  • Well, we just lost our curling match with Switzerland and we were not that great last night with Germany either. So if anything, I am bummed out. Canada, My second home.
  • Beef, chicken, fish, pork, lamb
  • also, just about every grill has hot spots that makes making kebabs a challenge. Looking at the picture you posted above, you may want to rotate the skewers 180 degrees from time to time. Another thing -to avoid- is waiting for one side to get to g…
  • Technically shish-kebab is not made with ground meat so I am not sure why we are talking about shish-kebab here! I make kebab "koobideh" (koobideh=ground) on a regular basis and typically unless the fat content is more than 22%, we're ok. Also, s…
  • ^^^ is that your tax return in the picture!?
  • Note that these "Persian" skewers come at different widths. I typically use the wide ones (the one in the link Richard posted) for ground beef (see the recipe in Richard's post) and the medium ones for chicken. It all depends on how big and thick th…
  • I was one of those that had connectivity issue in infrastructure mode. But I believe it went away once I explicitly set the default gateway on the unit. Whatever it was, I remember that following all the directions in the manual by themselves did …
  • sumoconnell said: Nerd for a silicon company, chips for cell basestations/networks and shiznit. Like the work, love the folks I work with.  I travel a bunch and it's like a family reunion sometimes.  interesting. Software architect w…
  • What I didn't like about the other forum was all the right wing religious BS that people used to post. (you want to deny global warming, don't do it on a BBQ forum). I thought there is/was a lot less of it here till somebody started that thread abo…
