  • I cook to 195 dead center can go anywhere from 10-16 hours depending. I have had an 8 pounder go a little over 16 hours but have also had a 8 pounder that was done in closer to 12 at about the same temp not sure what the difference was but different…
  • This thing is pretty cool...I purchased this when I purchased my large egg. Just curious what is this?
  • Thank you very much, she's alot bigger now but still daddies girl.
  • I am split on the forum, I do like the new forum to a certain degree, however sometimes you have to go like 8 pages back to see new things if they haven't been commented on I do not like that make the page have more results on one page. I do like th…
  • I have been meaning to try this too. Just my daughter on 4th of July a year ago.
  • I am in VA and paid 799 for my large egg. the XL was 1099. I have 2 dealers within about an hour of each other and was going to go with the cheapest the other dealer wanted 999 for the large and 1300 for the xl. I think they tried to throw in a few …
  • I did my first brisket the other day and used the Myron Mixon method in his book at about 300 degrees, it was pretty awesome. The only real advice I can give is save your grease cook it in a pan and use your grease on your meat, it takes the flavor …
  • I went with the egg based on a few things first the warranty but I would have went with the Primo if I could have gotten a better price. I think both cookers are about equal and the info on this site will go for both as long as your cooking with a c…
  • I cooked in a restaurant for a few years and was fascinated with bbq cooking. A guy who's mom also worked there had a egg and his bbq was always so much better than anything I had made. I have cheap barrel smoker bought for like 20 bucks at a flea m…
  • I've went 15 hours on a a butt before and still had plenty of coals left to burn. I guess it is just different bags of lump and temperature control.
  • Basically those guys didn't know what they were dealing with. The 2 negatives to the BGE were price and no water pan, I have used all kinds of smokers and a water pan is needed in most smokers but not the egg, the moisture from the meat stays in the…
  • Hey I understand. But thanks anyways if you change your mind you have my info I can send payment through paypal. But good luck either way with keeping or selling the egg.
  • Would you be interested in selling the digiq II on here and ship it to me? I would be interested in a buy for the right price. Email me at
  • Thanks everyone for the info. I really appreciate the help.

  • Whole chicken cut the back bone out, push it flat, inject with apple juice and brown sugar, coat with chosen rub, slow smoke on indirect for about 4 hours at around 225 back down breast up. When it's about done smother the bird with bbq sauce and yo…
  • I gave in and bought some carnivore, sweet and robust and I have to say I am not a real big fan, I mean it's not awful by any means just to tomato pasty for my taste. I honestly prefer the Sticky Fingers sauces over most others, however I am going t…
  • Yeah I just noticed that as well. GUess I just got excited oh well, I will return them then.

  • I had been curious about the whole abt thing but never got around to finding out what they really were. But now that you all show what they are and how to make them I think I will have to whip some up tonight.
  • My main concern is how well will it hold the coals. I mean whenever you use the coals for 2 cooks they get so small anyways and sometimes you get the small pieces of lump as well. So my concern is am I going to lose alot of the small pieces of charc…
  • I have open fire cooked hundreds of full prime and ribeyes. I worked in a steakhouse and did it multiple times. I personally would cook to 100 maybe 110 wrap it up nice then when you are ready to cut and eat grill it up to where everyone wants it. I…
  • I have to be the guy but can I get some Mountaineer fans on here?
  • 8000 for a grill my wife would slit my throat with the 10000 razor I bought the other day.
  • That is a balling grill for sure, I can only imagine the price on that thing, I would guess 4 grand.
  • I was just wondering if anyone could tell me where to buy this stuff? I have went with the propane torch and rubbing alcohol techniques. I was thinking of purchasing a weed burner but I am always interested in trying other products as well.
  • I'm not sure to be honest but for 10 bucks I feel like I can't really go wrong. I think they have a place I am going to pick mine up tomorrow so I will let you know in a month or two if it is worth it.
  • Yeah I don't think it is advertising I just know you see alot of people complain about it. I have no doubt this is a basic laser thermometer but I have never seen these things close to the 10 dollar price.
  • I did burgers last night as well and in the same predicament as you went with option a. I added the cheese on the grill closed the dome for about 3 minutes let the pepper jack cook in real good and pulled the burgers. Let the egg burn with nothing o…
  • So I use the older model torch and it works pretty well, but does that new torch work slightly upside down, that is my main problem with the torch is holding it upside down to light my grill it goes out several times. If this thing will work upside …
