It feels as though we’ve waited forever for college football to start, and finally the wait is over! Check out our tailgating page for recipes that are sure to become fan favorites. As an added bonus, the day before Labor Day is National Bacon Day and we don’t know about you, but we like putting bacon on anything and everything, so we’ll definitely be celebrating that. It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

  • TheEasyLife said: Gte1....congrats on your weight loss too! Thanks, I was starting to pack it on pretty good, and when I decided to have my knee replaced I thought it might be a good idea to drop weight before surgery. I started at…
  • I have not tried one yet direct, do you prefer it to indirect? It looks superb.
  • It is not sustainable to eat a dinner that consists of some type meat, lots of vegetables and very limited amounts of bread or potatoes? Please, I have been on the "Atkins" type diet for about 6 months now, lost 35 lbs and maintained that for the l…
  • Picked one up at Safeway last night $3.99/lb. pulled at 116 after rest it was about medium rare. If you rest 15 min or so they will go up a good 15 degrees especially if you reverse sear as you are throwing lots of heat on them for those last 3 mins…

  • I have done indirect which solves the smoke from fat dripping on the lump problem. The thing I didn't like about it was the skin was even less crisp this way. It is already not crisp enough direct this just added to he problem. And no I have not tri…
  • First of all the AR is great, that being said I'm not so sure that you can do that many racks and a butt at the same time with it. One suggestion for you. Do the butt, wrap and hold in cooler then do the ribs turbo at 350. They will only take about …
  • Yeh, my wife converted me. I agree with you about the big ones this is our 2nd in the 20lb range. If you raise them right from kittens they act a lot like dogs. And you are right pound for pound they can do some serious damage.
  • Nola, nice looking cat. I always hated cats growing up but my wife was a cat person and convinced me to have one. We are now on nos. 5 and 6. This one, Buster Posey, is ~18 lbs and acts like a dog. My daughter got him when the Giants got into the '1…
  • Aim the knife between the bones. Works like a charm!
  • FanOfFanboys said: I'm a UGA fan who lives 10 mins from Williams-Brice so I'm pretty in deep with SEC. I do think SEC will win the BCSCG this year, and I hope it's UGA. Both teams will be favored over ND. Few facts. ND has beaten 9 bowl eligi…
  • I'm doing one tonight myself, indirect 350 it takes about 2 hours, last one went a little faster so it got to rest a bit longer. Hope you enjoy it.
  • I have a nearly full bag of Cowboy that I did not like the flavor of. I think this is a good use for it.

  • Congrats Irish!!!!
  • IrishDevl said: And Stanford beat Oregon - number 5. Actually Stanford beat ND also. Officials kind of screwed that one up.
  • Irish, hate to say it, but if they do get by SC whoever they end up playing in the championship game will crush them. Don't think they can beat anyone in the top ten except maybe K State.
  • Aviator said: So where is the love? Where is the 50% off coupon or the one for 15.99? When I had one, I posted online for the brotherhood. ???? Sorry no coupon, I went into my local Ace and they were honoring the 20% off till 10AM t…
  • Steve, looks great need to pick one up for the weekend. Not sure why Costco doesn't sell these year round, but have to get my fill while the have them for the holidays.
  • Thanks for the heads up. Went in this morning an ordered 10 bags @15.99. With the new reduction in size of RO it ends being cheaper than RO at Wallyworld. Happy days!!!
  • Limited grill space
  • So, how did it turn out?
  • Fred19Flintstone said: R2Egg2Q said: I had those when I had a Weber OTP but sold it a few months ago. From what I recall they're sized for the 22" kettle and are probably 14+" in length which would be too large to fit on top of the La…
  • One of my favorite cuts of meat. This is a must try you will not do just one
  • What temp direct, and about how long do hey take his way. I have eaten there many years ago for a wedding rehearsal dinner. Cool place with great ribs.
  • Here are a couple of my takes. RO does burn a little faster than some others. For a 250 cook I only light in one place, the center. I have found that when using my AR vs the egg PS the coals burn up faster especially at 400. Maintaining 400 indirect…
  • I know it will do no harm to go naked, but I have done it in the past and just didn't like the egg to be dirty.
  • Rib rub was good, wasn't crazy about the Santa Maria rub on tri tip. Nothing wrong with it, I just prefer a more simple rub on my tri tip. http://www.susieqbrand.com/cart.php?m=product_detail&c=1&p=7 Their Habanero Death Dust is great on c…
  • So what am I doing when I do my ribs @350 indirect with wood?
  • I use the above method almost exactly, I just do the roast raised direct. Red oak, long rest, cut cross grain all lend to a perfect tri tip!!!!
