  • Slightly off topic, but still falls under temperature differences. I recently did an unintended eggsperiment that illuminated some of the difference between the grate guarded with plate setter and not. Using my FB 200 I was aiming for a grate of 250…
  • Legume said: I love this idea.  I've been wanting to mix ground pork w/beef for burgers, but this is a twist I hadn't thought of and I think my family would love. The texture difference alone would be fantastic. @legume I recently made b…
  • FWIW, I recently bought the Flame Boss 200 and have been very happy with it. I had a wifi connectivity problem at first and Michael at FB was very responsive. Other than that it works as advertised and is easy to set up.
  • I'm in the go slow camp also, not that I followed my own advice early on. :-) You presently have enough equipment to put a wide variety of tasty foods on the table. Get comfortable with the necessary techniques and if/when you decide you want to exp…
  • I recently bought a Flame Boss 200. I've used it once and found it very easy to set up and operate and will be doing my second cook with it this afternoon.
  • @ksmyrl That's the recipe I use and have also had great results with it.
  • That's unacceptable. There should be no wobble.
  • ProductPoet said: EggcitedinNJ said: My last smoke was cheddar and monteray jack. When served the latter usually goes first, but they both came out fine and neither lasts long. Thanks @EggcitedinNJ. I will have to try monteray jack…

  • caliking said: @EggcitedinNJ - check what mode your router is set at. The FB200 works in b or g mode, it won't work in n mode. Maybe you inadvertently changed it to the right mode when you were trying different options? But who cares, it wor…
  • Since reading the advice of trying to connect to another network to get the ID information I haven't had the time to do so away from my house so a short while ago, spurred on by Caliking's recent success, I had the FB200 search for my neighbors' rou…
  • @caliking your sequencing is what is happening with me and since all my other devices work fine I'm not keen on getting another router just for the FB and possibly encounter problems with other devices that are used on a daily basis.@BearQ, trying t…
  • Logger said: @EggcitedinNJ  My router changes letters and numbers to an encrypted "phrase of numbers and letters" for another layer of protection.  I have to log onto my router and go to "wireless settings" to get the password.  Hope thi…
  • My FB200 connectivity issue has not yet been resolved, but Michael has been a pleasure to work with, both on the phone and via email.
  • BearQ said: @EggcitedinNJ  my FlameBoss did the same as yours on my Belkin wireless router, have a look at your wireless router under the DHCP settings and you should see all devices that are leasing an IP from your wireless. For reasons I st…
  • stlcharcoal said: I'm sure you've checked this, but those passwords are case sensitive too. Good thought. My password, however, is all numbers.
  • stlcharcoal said: One of the things that got me was my failure to put the -> behind my password.  When you scroll though using the menu button you should see the password you entered followed by an arrow.  The arrow the other way serves as…
  • EggcitedinNJ said: I called FB customer service, but am waiting to hear back from them so I thought that maybe someone here could guide me.I received my FB a few days ago and tried to set up the wifi this afternoon with no success. My network…

  • Elizabeth, thanks for the heads up. I just came back from picking up six bags.
  • Wonderful shots. Thanks for sharing them.
  • Since I'm searing close to the lump I don't bring the dome temperature past 400 so it's not a big hassle or waste of fuel to subsequently bring the internal steak temperature to rare/medium rare. That said, I'm still new enough at Egging that I have…
  • Yes, that's the package I bought. Thanks for providing a direct link.
  • Dale, it's a combination package of items from the Ceramic Grill Store whereby I was able to get a discount compared with purchasing everything individually. They have a few different packages. Their website is Ceramicgrillstore.com and the veterans…
  • I already have a place setter so I can do indirect and I have a temporary DIY set up for searing close to the lump, but I now have another method for indirect, have given some permanency to the searing, and I've addressed what was a concern with the…
  • Welcome. I recently bought a BGE after decades of gas grilling and had no issues moving along the learning curve. The information at this site is invaluable; read, read, and read some more. Search when you have to, it's probably been asked before. A…

  • I remember reading about his ulimate commitment. Last Sunday I ran the Marine Corps Marathon in WDC and the amount of overt patriotism by the runners, spectators, and volunteers was tremendous. As a parent I can't imagine what his family is going th…
  • 50dolars, the short answer is increasingly longer distance "long runs" once per week in addition to the shorter stuff. If you want more info, I'll be glad to give it.
  • Thanks and the same to you and your family.
