It feels as though we’ve waited forever for college football to start, and finally the wait is over! Check out our tailgating page for recipes that are sure to become fan favorites. As an added bonus, the day before Labor Day is National Bacon Day and we don’t know about you, but we like putting bacon on anything and everything, so we’ll definitely be celebrating that. It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

  • That would also work and we can police it ourselves.  I'm sure if enough of us disagreed the nice Admin folks would delete the post or ban the miscreant.
  • I also think this would be a plus.  It should be restricted to Egg related items though.
  • I would go to a tent and awning shop and have them sew up a nylon webbing "basket" that fits the base and goes underneath and around just under the lips near the top.  Then a loop handle that clears the lid when you open it.  Or being from Texas you…
  • Man, those look a lot better than the picture of your leg a while back.
  • Are you controlling total air flow with the top vent as I see no restriction in the system?  Also is this on/off for your fan or does it modulate the fan speed? You can get SSR's and controllers either way, but I suspect at that price on/off.  Looks…
  • My XL was steady as a rock while on a 24" paver in the table. My medium in a table nest seems to be a bit less so.  Will let you know about the XL and table nest in the next couple of days as I have the table stained and the neighbor lads will help …
  • @SGH Are the hooks about 1/8" stock or larger?  I am considering making a set for my XL Egg with longer shanks and hang them from the dome exhaust or making a rack to sit on the grate in which case they would be considerably shorter.  It does look l…
  • In my best Rosanna Anna Dana voice, "Never mind."
  • @Brisket_Fanatic I know Hy Vee can be a bit proud of their items at times, but that looks like a pretty good brisket.  Kind of wondering if it isn't Amana beef and the little foil sticker on the outside fell off.  It is priced like an Amana product …
  • Forgetaboutit this is not worth my time or anyone elses!  I dislike this Vanilla but love this forum.
  • I noticed it affected all posts, but with three different comments to three threads it only incremented by one.  It also incremented by one for a new discussion (this one) that I started.  Again not a big deal to me but seems odd.  Of course now it …
  • Is your screen name still under the My Profile header on the right side of the window?  If not sign back in and I think all will be well.  I have had this happen many times in the past especially if I have changed to a different web browser or erase…
  • I have had this happen with my XL and believe it may be what caused my screen to get restricted up by a gummy residue and cause air flow problems later.
  • RRP said: bettysnephew said: If I were to go to the work of disassembling the hinge and bands, I would have them powder coated.  Much more durable. Dumb question here...where does one get powder coating done? Sorry I missed that…
  • Does the Stoker show the on/off time of the blower? This may be a better indication of what is happening. Since your fire goes too low before coming back toward set point I would check the following:  Is the fan mounted in the correct position for t…
  • @cazzy I'm sure the Iowa Pork Producers Assn. is standing at attention and saluting right now!  Those look great.
  • Obviously, someone types faster than I. LOL
  • Click on your name under My  Profile.  Then edit profile On the left side of the page is signature.  Put what you want to share there.
  • @travisstrick That looks like a fabulous meal.  Great job!  Any Iowa Chop would be proud to be served like that.
  • Thanks, looking forward to seeing it.
  • A pal of mine with a better memory remembered the restaurant. It was DiNardo's in Wilmington, DE.  There is also one in Philly.  The one in Wilmington is closed according to him, but they had the best soft shell sandwiches I have ever eaten.  Like a…
  • That is on the same line, but looks much sturdier.
  • Come to think of it, I recall Sam's Club had a metal grill gazebo a couple of years back though I haven't seen one recently.  That might work if it doesn't rust.  Anyone tried one of those?
  • @Texansurf Sure rub it in!  I recently retired but the wife plans on working for a few more years so am still stuck in this Winter Wonderland.  Of course we do not have killer snakes to step on or scorpions in our boots.  A small bit of consolation …
  • @Lit My property is too sloped for any slab that would be in a convenient area from the house following a snow storm of any accumulation. I may look further into deck mods. @RRP I had a push broom outside the door last year but you know what kind of…
  • Cookinbob said: I guess your Egg is a large as your woo has handles.  My XL woo does not have a handle, the small one does.  Wish the XL did as it takes me two operations to lift it all out to add wood or whatever. The lack of handles is…
  • @Biggreenpharmacist After seeing your setup, I emailed CGS to ask if they were going to make a CI Woo for the XL.  I have been on the fence about one and if they make it with the handles like yours I'm in for one.  Also like the thermo protection id…
  • When I was working at the Tour de Trump and Tour duPont years back all of us motopilots always went to a place in Wilmington, DE for soft shell crab sandwiches.  They had a very light batter with a hint of garlic and were served on thick toast with …
  • @BigGreenGator Don't really know why, but many have had issues with gasket seal when they undid the the ring bolt.  It may have to do with concentricity of the top to bottom or they may have put it back together at a different depth in the ring.  Re…
  • @cazzy, Welcome to the Iowa Chop Club. The local pork producers serve them at the Iowa State Fair every year and they do a great job grilling them.  The Iowa Chop is a center cut pork chop at least 1 1/4" thick but usually more around here.  I'm sus…
