  • that looks as tasty as can be
  • here in Cedar Falls Ia, I have picked up RO from Menards and had mixed emotions about the sizing.  However, I just completed a 20 hour total cook with sizes that were smaller than par.  I loaded my XL up real good and maintained a 250 dome temp the …
  • man are you guys (and gals) lucky you can find used eggs.   Here in Iowa you can never find an egg that someone wants to sell.  I have an XL and would like to have a medium for those days my XL is busy!!!
  • dang nice!  
  • just an update,,, the flat was done in 14 hrs with a dome temp of 250 and a grate temp of 216-220  (trimmed weight was 12.5 lbs).  That was about 6 hours before eating time.  I FTC'd the flat and we ate 5 1/2 hours later.  The meat was still warm, b…
  • I put the brisket on at 10 last night with a dome reading of 250 and a grate temp of 216-223.  Internal temp shot up to 135 within a couple of hours and then has been creeeping ever since midnight.  As of 6:30 this morning internal temp on the flat …
  • thanks nolaegghead and travis.  I enjoy reading your guys posts and appreciate your sharing of knowledge.  I will choke the fan throat down and keep the DFMT is almost closed.
  • i have had that happen as well Spaightlabs on a previous brisket that I did last year.  not sure what the heck happened, mine turned out ok, but timing was horrible.  
  • I live in the country and wind is not my friend for holding lower that 270-290,,,,if I keep it just inside the garage door, I can keep it around 250 with the digi-Q, but thats about as low as I can get, otherwise it wants to smother out.
  • i was planning on putting it on the egg at 6 pm tommorow night, then I should be assured its done by time everyone wants to eat.  I just dont want to be done at noon on Sat and have to have it rest for 6 hours.  A 1-2 hour rest in my opinion is best…
  • I found a previous post where Travis talks about bumping the heat up to 300 dome to get cook time down to 1 hr per lb approx.  I read where guys cut the point off to get cook time down as well.  I thought about this, but I still want to cook the poi…
  • This is a great forum and I have everything shipped to my buddies house anyway.^:)^ Now that is the friggin truth to a happy marriage!

  • I think she made the inside look like a new Egg as a hint.  I imagine the inside of the one you currently have is mine. The one I sold to a coworker was seasoned well, my new XL is well on its way to not looking so new inside
  • Congrats to you and your wife. that is a really cool cake.  thanks for the comment, there was a lot of pictures taken by people where I work.
  • she laughed at your post Masked,,, she says that is for her mini-egg so she can cook a couple of hambugers quick without firing up my XL,, I think I am going shopping quick before she changes her mind =D>
  • now I can get back to cooking my XL.  I have recently sold the one in this photo (taken when it was bought in '97) and purchased the newer version of the XL because of the increased internal height for cooking turkeys 20-24Lb size.  I did have to gi…
  • thanks Tweev, Tell me about it, started classes Aug 2008, had a son Dec 2008, a girl Jul 2010.  Feels good to not have homework.  Graduation date was Feb 5, 2012, and the very best part of it for me to use as a roll model to my kids someday is that …
  • BAS in Applied Management.  I already have an Electronics Engineering Technology degree from years ago.
  • Good luck and take care of yourself fellow egger!
  • I have done a lot of turkeys on my BGE.  Cook it breast side down if you want to have the most flavorful, juicy, breast meat you can imagine.  for what its worth.  good luck!!
