  • Kcid: I add sorry that you do not appreciate my comments.  Thank you for sharing the fact that you cut a 22 inch hole for your egg.  I appreciate the information, but it fails to answer the simple question I originally asked concerning how much of …
  • EggHeadInFlorida: I want to thank you for actually taking the time to measure your air gap between your table and your egg.  That was all that was needed verses all this your dealer knows nothing about thermodynamics or raise your egg to make the g…
  • Interesting how no one seems able to provide what would be a simple gap width required to keep a wood table from catching on fire.  Everyone wants to debate thermodynamics or come up with a less taxing solution than 10 minutes with a jig saw.  If dr…
  • StillH20Egger: The table nest probably provides two inches verses the one inch ceramic feet.  I am already at 14.75 inches from the top of the ceramic feet to the top of the table top.  Lets say that it raises the egg and inch, but if the gap incre…
  • How much of a gab should I have between the egg and the table top?  Half inch, one inch, 1.5 inch, or even two inches?
  • I possible inferred something different than what I was asking in my original question.  I have a 2 inch paver and the old ceramic feet under my egg.  When I measure from the top of the ceramic feet to the table top, it measures 14. 75 inches.  I ha…
  • If you plan on moving your egg at all, get an Egg Handler. In my short time here, I have seen more than one egg broken while it was moved. With an egg handler the probability of this happening is greatly reduced. Protect your investment first, …
  • Thanks for the intel. I will try roasting them a little longer to see if some of the heat is removed. I see the rack being used a good bit more in the future.
  • The new ones I saw this weekend at the fest even had breaks on two of the wheels. A good improvement in my opinion.
  • I would like to thank all of you that set up the Sunshine Eggfest. It was a great time. I learned a lot, and was able to purchase a few new toys for the egg from Dan. It was well worth the time and money to attend. I look forward to attending ne…
  • It is a tape gasket. By far the easiest way to get the gasket is to send a private message to RRP. He will make sure you get the right gasket. It will be cheaper than you can find in locally, that is if you can find it. He will e-mail you the in…
  • Not sure how many of you are traveling but with fuel prices, it might be cheaper to fly. You might be able to find some good deals online. Just a suggestion.
  • Nice new rig you made. At first, I thought you were going to show us the new one made by BGE. http://www.biggreenegg.com/documents/NPUconsumer.pdf The handle spins on itself, to make storage easier. Also, checkout the new Jalapeno Rack w…
  • http://www.espitech.com/Vitavit_L.html You might try the link above to find the part. Otherwise, try writing the company and see if they will provide you a new pressure cooker if the do not make the part anymore. They might give you a free on…
  • Looking at the new egg, there is potential to save some big money in the future if you get one. It looks big enough that a true egg head could go out in style when it is their time. Do a real high clean burn, collect the ashes, and scatter them in…
  • Yes, the BGE thermometer was/is calibrated. The Maverick checked out when I did a boiling water test on it. Though I am not sure if this is the best test after reading the ThermoPen instructions. Thanks for the responses. I will have to try co…
  • Why is the inside of your egg white? Just clean it or did you put something on it?
  • Can you give us the mixture for the dough. I for one do not know how to mix to or measure 60% hydration. Thanks.
  • I remember reading somewhere after Mt. St. Helens exploded that it put more pollution into the air than man had since the industrial revolution. Since then we have had a number of volcanoes blow their top's. I guess that has not added to the airbo…
  • I am glad to hear that you have all your bills paid off. With that said, save it for the future or put it towards paying off your mortgage early. More than 50% of Americans will have less than $50,000 in savings when they retire. Set yourself up …
  • Open it with a 2 foot piece of old broom handle. Works great, and I have not lost any hair since starting using this method. Burns are fun.
  • I suggest Cutco sheers. They separate and are dishwasher safe.
  • Share the recipe when you find it please. I would like to find a recipe that mimics the soft Philly pretzels I have had.
  • I have been lighting my egg using alcohol lately. It seems to work just as well as a MAPP, and my wife does not mind lighting the egg this way. She did not like using the torch. The only thing that I do different than in the video is that I punch…
  • I am using vegetable oil. I know from other cooks that olive oil has a lower burn point. I am letting the oil heat up prior to putting in the rice. Even with a nice black seasoning of the wok, it seems like without a rather large amount of oil th…
  • Yes, I use a spider. I have been cooking the meats and the rice with the spider facing up. I also use long grain slow cook rice. I will try using stock to cook the meats, plus adding soy sauce earlier in the cook. I have been adding it only at …
  • Here are a couple of links on the issue. http://www.straightdope.com/columns/read/2519/does-barbecuing-cause-cancer It is probably a lot like saccharine. Saccharine does cause cancers in mice, but you have to drink some 20 cases of saccharine…
  • Can you tell us how many raffle tickets are being sold for the one egg? Also, as I do not mind supporting a good cause, is Wildfire actually the Wildfire Safe House program. I get an error using your facebook link.
  • I have to make at least 4 pizzas when I cook, because of all my kids. I just cook one 15 inch pizza at a time. When I put the first one on to cook, the kids are helping top the second. When I pull the first one off, I give the stone a few minutes…
