  • The dough balls at Publix are right on. Perfect size and always fresh. Recently the one near me started doing whole wheat dough as well.
  • Thanks for the tip! I've seen people with that setup but have just never tried it. But I think I'll give it a go now! Thanks again.
  • I just seared them for a couple of minutes per side at 500. Then shut down the egg and went for about another 5 minutes per side. Kept an eye on their temp and pulled them at 140.
  • Hey, thanks! I've always just used toothpicks. They've always worked really well. I think the key is in how you turn them. Just be careful not to pull the bacon with your tongs. Sometimes I even flip them with a spatula to avoid pulling the bacon of…
  • Outstanding!
  • Thanks for the kind words! And thanks for looking. Dreamland sauce is the way to go, no doubt. I would highly recommend ordering it online, if necessary. We put it on chicken, pork chops, ribs...so tasty!
  • Now that is awesome.
  • When my gasket went, it was the gasket itself. The adhesive didn't give way, the felt burned through. It was toast. I did a lot of checking around to see what the best replacement options were. I came across this one and found several people who had…
  • I haven't done any direct. The first one I ever did was indirect for about 40-45 minutes at about 375 and it turned out absolutely perfect. Since then, the wife has had no desire to deviate from what works. I'm sure I'll try it sooner or later, thou…
  • Well there was until this morning. Nothing like a little pork loin biscuit to start the day!
  • I installed a nomex gasket from High-Cue about a month ago. It's a self-adhering gasket. (No Super 77 spray required.) Plus I didn't have to take the dome off of my egg to do it. That was important in making my decision. I've done lots of cooks of a…
  • Thanks everybody. It was great evening. And I even cleaned up! What a Mother's Day bonus!
  • Had to make a minor adjustment to the top band. Just loosened it, re-aligned it slightly, and tightened everything back up nice and snug. But I never had to take anything completely off. The dollar bill test worked exactly as it was supposed to: a l…
  • I did both top and bottom. I was worried about the back side area near the hinge being a little too tight to reach. Wondered if I would be able to get my hands in there and properly install the gasket. But it was no sweat at all. WAY easier than I a…

  • I installed the High-Cue gasket about three weeks ago and it is working great. Like you, I worried about having to go too far with disassembly. The simpler, the better. I did lots of research before making the decision because it seemed like maybe i…
