We’re feeling pretty super, how about you? The big game is fast approaching, and while we love football, we love an excuse to invite people over and cook even more! You too can cook like a champion with recipes from Dr. BBQ’s NFL Gameday Cookbook: Grilled Tuna Sandwiches from Seattle and Baked Brie from New England. Who’s going to win? You’ll have to cook both to find out.

The 17th Annual EGGtoberfest was amazing - here are the highlights Click Here

  • Every time my wife makes tacos I laugh at her because she has a 7ish qt LeCreuset DO that is pretty much only used for corn tortillas for tacos, she keeps the oil in the DO and adds more when needed...but a LeCreuset only for tortillas, good thing i…
  • Since its local I use Grove.  The bonus is it is available during the entire Wisconsin Egging (and non-Egg Grilling, in a pinch, season) from January 1 thru December 31!
  • Hacker-Pschorr Oktoberfest!!!
  • Oostburg, WI
    in (OT) Where?? Comment by lwrehm June 2013
  • I will be skipping the Flop-bron show tonight, in favor of a nice Egg'd dinner with friends and some fantastic home brew'd beer.
  • I grew up using Grove lump in a Weber, to tell the truth I had to cook some burger and brats yesterday at a remote location where a Weber was available, grabbed my chimney and a bag of Royal Oak and everyone was happy with the food.
  • Homebrewing beer and 60's and 70's era Cub Cadet Garden tractors
  • Well this morning I got up and checked it again, and not it appears to be working.   I completed the order last night and followed up with an email, Andris replied right away that all is well with my order.   Not sure what was wrong with my coupon c…
  • I ran it thru to the checkout and it might have worked, shipping did come up as $0.00 but the price stayed at $79.  I just didn't expect the expired coupon message when I hit the "apply coupon" button.
  • Just tried to place an order and the coupon code 'biggreenegg' is coming up as expired...guess I'm SOL, you snooze you lose.
  • About 5 minutes ago I picked up a 20 lb bag of Grove at the Pig in Oostburg, WI (about 6 miles from Grove's home base in Cedar Grove, WI, $15.29.  The Ace Hardware store might be a buck or two less.  Buddy of mine's dad owns Grove Charcoal, here and…
  • Just an idea that I have found works great for me...I use 1/2 pint Mason Jars.  I built a rack that will hold both 1/2 pint and pint jars (for more often used spices), buy all my spices at the Spice House in downtown Milwaukee and use the labels the…
  • If I can get a round 14-16", I think I could swing it!
  • Green Eggin' in Oostburg, WI, grew up in Kohler.  Been a Packer fan all my life, BUT those damn cheeseheads are not allowed in my house, last one that I found was in the trash the next Friday.   I am not, nor will I ever be a proud cheesehead!!!
  • I tried parchment a couple times and the area under the pie doesn't scorch at all but the edges sure did, I just found that it was no needed and a dusting of semolina or cornmeal was easier for me. Please note the last 2 words above!!!!! I worked in…
  • At least fresh ground round will stay the same for my raw beef and onion samiches!
  • I skip the parchment and stick with the KISS principle, a sprinkle of semolina to act as "ball bearings" and a quick jerk of the peel and it slides right onto the stone, and no need to open the egg to remove the paper until the pie is done.
  • I'm sitting on 2 5 gallon kegs of 2 different Classic American Pilsners, hoping to keep them around for some summer BBQ outings.  Planning a 10 gallon batch of some Patersbier to tap for the time being.  I just love having beer on tap in the house!
  • Is it really that much work to clean a grill?

  • Did you have some charcoal and some meat on hand....road site BBQ at its best!
    in Karma? Comment by lwrehm March 2013
  • You bring back some bad memories bring up "mock chicken legs".  I remember them from school lunch, nasty nasty things they were.  I have no clue what they were/are made of, other than to say that it is some type of a "meat" product formed into a chi…
  • I had a one, then one day it was gone, I couldn't find it for the life of me.  I searched all over the kitchen, in all my pockets (pants, shorts, jackets) nothing.   So I ordered a new one with, this time with the "jacket" with magnets so I could ke…
  • No brats on a mini for me, if I'm frying brats (give me a break, I'm from Sheboygan, WI), I cook up a 3 lb box break out some homemade kraut and I have dinner and breakfast and lunch for a week.
  • Our V-day tradition is Kraft Spaghetti, yes the stuff in the green box.  That was as good as we could do in the dorms back in college.  This year I'm home with the kids while SWMBO will be in Chicago on business, so I'm thinking burgers for us and o…
  • Safe, yes like many have said they would not sell if not.   Aged, again I would say yes.  Not dry aged but kinda wet aged, the enzymes are working either way.  Dry aged beef is aged in the open air of aging coolers no wrapping at all, normally wet a…
  • 2 5 gallon buckets with the bottom cut out of one and replaced with a piece of expanded metal to sort the dust and small pieces into the second bucket.  
  • Penzeys has really good stuff, but you can also look at The Spice House if you are in the Milwaukee or Chicago areas.  I'm not sure if they do mail order though.  The Spice House is run by the sister of the guy that runs Penzeys.  I know I am lucky …
  • I am MANGREAT!  or better yet GREATMAN!
  • Happy Schnapps Combo...Wisconsin's favorite Drinking band!!!
  • Nevermind on the price location, not sure how I missed that...guess I'm too drunk again.
