  • I have a hard time understanding why anyone even eats frozen fries ... not for me thanks! I too like homemade fries the best. But when you have 3 teenagers who eat like there's no tomorrow, it's nice to have frozen around for something quick.

  • Do you cook it up outside or inside? My wife got me a homebrew kit, but said no way am I cooking it inside. She hates the smell. I've been thinking of getting a turkey fryer and just cooking it up outside with the LP tank from my old gas grill that …
  • Appreciate all the advice. Brisket is one of the most difficult pieces of meat I've ever cooked, but the payoff is incredible when it turns out right. So many different opinions on how to cook it too. I never knew that the temperature could drop at …
  • I made my 8 lb HEB brisket last weekend and it turned out better than the grass fed beef. It cooked for about 10 hours at 230 F dome temperature, but the internal meat temperature never got above 175 F. In fact after it hit 175, it started dropping.…
  • Cen-Tex - what internal temperature did you go to? Thx. I took your earlier advice and bought a nice 8 lb brisket from HEB that I plan on cooking tomorrow. Pretty much going to follow what you laid out above except I don't have a v-rack so I'll ju…
  • Thanks for all the advice. I pretty much thought the grass fed beef and the small size were the problem, but it's nice to get confirmation from people who have been there done that. Thanks for the pictures Cen-Tex. I have seen those cuts in HEB befo…

  • I always take the husk and silk off when I grill my corn. Then I pour some melted butter on them and put them straight on the grill (no foil) on direct turning them about every 3-4 minutes. I like doing this after the main course is done so I have m…
  • To get back on topic, here's a good link. http://eggheadforum.com/discussion/1013522/broke-my-ceramic-cap But to stay off topic, the green G or red W on top would be the best. Many Packers and Badger fans in Texas.

  • Thanks for the link. I bought mine too. $75 with shipping. One thing I didn't notice until I received it is that it's made for right handed people. All of us lefties either need to use the wrong hand or read the thermometer upside down.  :-h
  • Thanks for the advice. I went to Home Depot and found the Kingsford container for $12. Looks nice on the patio and holds the entire bag inside.
  • I'm still learning temperature control so I ended up cooking at about 300 F. Put the roast on at 1:00 pm and it was up to 150 F by 4:45 pm. Turned out well and everyone enjoyed. Next time I plan on pulling it off at 140 F so I have more medium rare …
  • I have the iGrill thermometer that I currently use with my Weber gas grill. It works well, but can be a little quirky at times. If you have your iPhone set to go to sleep after a certain amount of time of inactivity, it can lose connection to the te…
  • The flashback videos look pretty scary as are all the hot embers floating around while Naked Whiz stokes the fire. This has me re-thinking the location of my egg for my outdoor kitchen. I have a nice covered outdoor patio with 12' ceilings. My pla…
  • I'm in a similar situation. I was planning on building my outdoor kitchen with 2 large eggs and a power burner. Then someone mentioned to me that most people looking at a house with an outdoor kitchen would want a natural gas grill. Plus if I move I…
  • I'm in a similar dilemma. I don't cook for that many people often, but I like to cook different things at the same time. I plan on going all in and buying 2 large eggs up front. I like to cook everything on the grill so having 2 large eggs will let …
  • Thanks for the information Kent. That's what I thought, but it's nice to hear from someone with experience.
  • I was talking to my egg dealer (Barbecues Galore) yesterday about building the egg into a kitchen. He told me that I need to make sure at least 3 sides are open around the egg to get proper air flow for the egg. He said to put the egg on the end and…
  • As a fellow lefty, I noticed the same thing Squeezy. There's only 10% of us in the world so I'm sure that's why most tables we see are the wrong hand.
  • That is really scary. Glad no one was hurt. It now makes me concerned for my plans. I'm new here and will be buying my egg soon. I'm building an outdoor kitchen and plan to have the egg and kitchen located just outside my covered patio. This threa…
  • Leggsington - which model Summit do you have, 460 or 660? I think I may start off with a large egg in a nest before I build my kitchen. That way I can see how well I like it for grilling during the work week. In the end I think I'll end up with a …
  • Love the beer picture. Dos Equis is all I drink. It's nice living on the border where you can buy a case of it for $16 in Mexico with no tax.
  • Thanks for all the advice and information so far. Keep the information coming. It's definitely useful for me and I'm sure others. Leggsington - I like your set-up. Thanks for the picture. This is very similar to what I was thinking. Actually it's b…
  • Living in Texas now, but I was born and raised in Wisconsin so it's definitely go Badgers! (and although not college, gotta say go Packers too!)
