  • I wish I liked Mexican / mesquite lump charcoal because the price is right..I've tried 3 different brands of it and ended throwing it all away.  I just hate the smokey mesquite flavor...it ruins everything it comes into contact with for my particula…
  • I grill direct much more often than I smoke so I fill up the fire box with as much new charcoal as possible (probably 15 lbs)  I have an XL and can normally get at least 5-6 grill cooks out of 1 load of lump.  I intentionally NEVER add any new charc…
  • Broke a leg off my plate setter about 3 years ago...used JB Weld to put it back together and it has held together perfectly. Since I only use this on low and slows not sure how hot I've gotten it, but it certainly was worth it in my experience. More…
  • BGE brand and GFS are identical products....both Royal Oak.
  • I've had my XL BGE for about 3 years...cook on it 3-4 times / week.  90% of my cooks are direct (no platesetter).  The only time I use the daisy wheel is during indirect cooks (Butts / brisket)...otherwise I leave the top wide open and just use the …
  • Green bag Royal Oak from Menards is about all I use and I've always had great luck with it. Also...it's US hardwood. Anyone who thinks its different that red bag or BGE lump is fooling themselves in my opinion.
  • I used to have a Smokin Tex (kind of a knock-off of the cookshack) electric smoker before I got my egg. Really simple to use and made some decent BBQ with it. It's definately a set it and forget it. I think I paid about $600 for it..
  • I bought my first bag of cowboy last week when it was on sale. Used it tonight to grill some burgers. A few of my personal observations... - A few big pieces but more dust in the bag than any lump I've ever bought before -I thought it was the…
  • I bought a southern specialties stainless steel table when I bought my XL about 3 years ago. Love it and can't imagine not having it. It stores every accessory I own (and I own a bunch of them) as well as 2 bags of charcoal...plus it looks really …
  • Quick question...does anyone know if this fits an XL?  It obviously is dependent on the size of the handle and I can't recall if the XL has the exact same size handle as the L.  Any insight?
  • If my sam's stocked them and I saved $1, I'd purchase an additional egg....just my opinion. I sell warranties in my business and they are pure profit....even if BGE doesn't honor the warranty...it's well worth the risk...again just my opinion. My d…
  • I decided to use JB weld on mine about 2 years ago....I've probably had my egg heated to 700 degrees over a hundred times since then and it has held up perfectly.
  • It's all I use....it is packaged by Ozark Oak. If you can get it for $8 a bag that's a great deal...I pay about $10 I think..
  • Not sure where you are located, but if you have Menards in your area, they carry green bag RO which is about all I use. Otherwise, I go to the Kroger grocery store and buy their store brand which is fairly decent stuff. I'm not a big WGWW fan but …
  • I've lived in Omaha for a few years and absolutely love it. I live in West Omaha as well...lots of good restaurants, nice people, and great schools if you have children. Only a handful of Egg dealers as mentioned above. I normally buy lump from W…
  • There actually is a CAB Prime.  It will have the label and will be clearly marked as such (see link below)   http://www.certifiedangusbeef.com/brand/prime.php  If beef is labeled as simply CAB, I'm guessing it is not prime, but rather the "top…
  • Regarding CAB (Certified Angus Beef), it is not simply a "breed" - this Beef is Graded and undergoes some of the most difficult requirements in the Industry. I believe only about 8% of the cattle slaughtered in the US qualify for the CAB distinctio…
  • I Agonized over the same decision 6 mos ago....ended up going with the XL and I absolutely LOVE it. Much more versatile in my opinion and when you need the space you have it. also the Ceramic grill store now offers about every accessory for the XL a…
