  • Well I'm going to try and salvage this meal....put everything on at 2 am dome thermometer was holding steady right at 270. Checked things at 6 am and needle hadn't moved at all...go back at 8 and needle is now reading 350!!?? How does that happen? T…
  • Thanks, I'll go check it out...I might need your help later on...planning on a brisket and pork butt for Sunday evening eat around 5 pm....thinking of putting everything on around midnight in the 250-275 you see an issue with the time fra…
  • Very nice...I guess there won't be many side dishes with this meal! Looking forward to hear how it all turns out and see some finished pics. Good luck!
  • Thanks for the insight guys! I've been told to try Natchez BBQ and Good Ole Boys??
  • I'll be taking 65 S through Nashville so it looks like Decatur is along the way, thanks for the input.
  • Well I figured I'd have to purchase one from the store but I could probably poke around locally and find access to a fresh one. You can see from my picture that it was served like bacon strips.
  • Looks great from where I'm sitting...I need to try l/s again to do the brown sugar/butter/honey routine. I have done mostly turbo ribs the past year but when I have tried the brown sugar routine with turbo they generally don't turn out so…
  • Paul_in_Canton, you just answered what I wanted to know. I have always used Bad Byron's with pecan wood and have really enjoyed it...I just bought my first John Henry rubs yesterday (Pecan and Honey rib rub) and getting ready to put 3 racks of ribs …
  • That makes a great burger! My first time for a PB burger was at XXX at Purdue about 4 yrs ago. I generally make em a couple times a year now...nice curveball to hamburgers throughout the year.
  • It has never been both ankles at the same time. Generally starts out in my left Achilles Tendon...hurts so bad, feels so tight and then it moves around into my ankle area and top of foot. I've never had significant swelling but the pain is pretty da…
  • @THEBuckeye‌, is Uloric something you take on a regular basis to prevent the buildup of uric acid?
  • Interesting thread...I just recently started having gout ankles lock up on me and I'm unable to walk...Dr.'s tell me it's not gout since it's not in my big dad has suffered from gout for many years...Dr. finally gave me some ind…
  • Thanks for the comments, very insightful. I will say, he was quite impressed yesterday as I lit the egg for the steaks. I had to leave for about 30 min. and asked if he would just watch the temp as it climbed and keep it around 400 until I returne…
  • I ended up cutting the majority of it into 2" steaks and Trexed 3 of them to a nice medium rare which turned out wonderful!! Melt in the mouth good and then vac sealed the remaining. I had a good chunk of meat that I'm going to have to grill and t…
  • Sorry to hear that...quick, take the car back to the dealership first thing in the morning! Where you located at? We had some heck of a winds/thunderstorms in SE MO this afternoon/early evening.
  • I had to provide them (my dealer) with the actual date of purchase. I have the original receipt and was willing to send in a picture of it but they did not require that of me.
  • Just received word that my warranty has been approved and my new base will be on the next shipment coming to my dealer. I hate to have to deal with this but I have had nothing but a good experience with the warranty from BGE.
  • That is in the nest. The first time it spider cracked between the lower air intake and up towards the handle. I don't roll my nest anywhere and seldom take her upwards of 700 so I was quite surprised to see this. Anyone else with experience of mo…
  • I've had the best luck going 75-100 over target temp and then shut the bottom vent to about 1/4 - 1/2 open with dw on top...temp seems to settle in right around target temp each time...over shooting much more than that and you can start waiting a fa…
  • EX Mark zero turn 60" cut for roughly 3 acres.  
  • Just to update...I pulled the trigger on a Tundra last night...looking forward to many good years ahead!!
  • Born and raised in Southern Alberta...last 19 years has been spent in MIssouri. Love the egg (XL)...need to have the Family still in Alberta get one for when I visit!
  • The ribs look great! How much Bad Byron's are you applying? I apply it heavy for butt cooks but just a light coating for ribs. I did ribs once with a heavy dose of it and the ribs were unpleasant to eat...way too salty...
  • If I were to offer that as a special gift she'll ask for the return receipt, or else she'd open the box and say there's nothing in here!! Thanks a lot... Now my confidence is shaken!!
  • I would like wifi capabilities...I don't mind spending a few extra bucks to get the "better"'s for my wife so price tag is no option...okay, actually it is, but I figure I would need to spend in the 3-5 hundred range...just want to get …
  • More photo use/general household making fun of's Christmas!!
  • Thanks...I'll look into both options...I'm not so great with computer related items so I appreciate the feedback.
  • Does this hold true for ribs as well? I've got a pack of 3 from Sam's Club that I thought I would have smoked by now...probably 10 days in the fridge, still in wrap, probably just need to put them in the freezer.
  • I'm trying to decide as well between a Tundra and F150. I'm very impressed by both of them. Tundra has really improved their interior look for 2014 IMO. Part of me would like to buy Dodge due to their Super Bowl commercial....longevity and resale…
