  •  You have inspired me. I have had my Egg for about 8 years and have never tried this. My first cook was a brisket and they all have been excellent. I am going to do this next weekend!
  • PSC said: dude, you're sweating it too much.  light it and enjoy. In the words of famous BBQ SUPER MASTER Aaron Franklin: "It's Barbecue!!!" Agreed! The important part is the beer after lighting in one place and center, low and slow …
  • I have to agree with the simple method, if it didn't work that way I probably wouldn't do it. My shop vac is for cleaning garage, not egg. Heck, I haven't even had my firebox out to clean behind it in over four years and then it was only because I m…
  • Ladeback69 said: DoubleEgger said: Congrats. You're getting close to retirement and living the @RRP carefree lifestyle!  Thank you, but I will be 52 on July 5th so I have at least 10 yeast or more before I can retire or afford t…
  • everyone knows that ketchup is only for fries...    Looks good!
  • DMW said: I was a #3 fan, #8 and then #88 inherited my support Same here... I went to this race one year, nice facility. I had a hotel give me a room for the weekend and tickets to all the races (Prepaid vacation ). I left very little m…
  • I think you have far to much spare time....
  • Sea2Ski said: brimee said: wow, all I did was afternoon burgers, it finally got up to 60...   windchill, feels like 60, can't wait for summer to get here... Ha ha...  In summer, I bet you wish it was winter when it is 60 with…
  • wow, all I did was afternoon burgers, it finally got up to 60...   windchill, feels like 60, can't wait for summer to get here...
  • Summer! I dislike cold weather! I moved from PA to Texas for warmer weather, just still not far enough South! I think it was in the upper 20s this morning, at least tomorrow will be warmer.
  • saluki2007 said: Never had any interest in the koozie as my beer doesn't last long enough to get warm. The tumblers though, money.  I always had the same thought... It is unbelievable how it keeps the last drop as cold as the first! I ne…
  • KiterTodd said: Okay, you guys are killing me here.  7 pages on Jimmy Dean sausage and Ritz crackers?  You've broke me down.  I'm making it this weekend...  So, as I'm not having a party and don't have a true opportunity for appetizers, what…
  • leftovers (that is if you save some) worked great as a nacho topping... 
  • SGH said: brimee said: It better be as good as you say... I guess if it isn't it had to be my substitutions  Well, what's the verdict brother? Thumbs up or thumbs down? thumbs up of course, I really like poblano peppers!
  • Thanks, its on with a couple of substitutions; 1 Poblano pepper instead of 1/4 Bell Pepper 1 Texas Sweet Onion instead of the green onion and its round.... It better be as good as you say... I guess if it isn't it had to be my substitutions 
  • Chubbs said: I don't brine anything.  I agree, why work harder than you have to, it takes away from beer drinking time. I always cook the easiest way, always turns out great and no one expects more...
  • I have a 2014 Limited 4x4 with the 3.5 Eco Boost and love it. I'm not to sure on that smaller one having enough power, isn't the 5.0 rated higher in torque and hp? Also I wouldn't get hung up on the fuel mileage rating, mine gets no where near the r…
  • I shoot for 200 - 210 internal, did the probe slide in and out of it like soft butter? If not then it needs a higher internal to be tender. I have never taken one off at that low of internal. On a side note, I have had it ready for breakfast before
  • four bolts and associated washers and nuts...
  • four ss bolts to hold my grid up the same height my plate setter would hold it up...
  • When I moved with my Large Egg three years ago all I did was remove everything from the inside, attached the things that came with it to hold the lid down and the the movers moved it. Mine were insured so I figured if they broke it then I would get …
  • I need to get one of those, not the belt(nice by the way), the gasket. I haven't really had a gasket in years.
  • Toxarch said: I feel ya. We've been at 97-99 for a while with a heat index of like 106. I'd love for a cold front to come through and drop it down into the 70s. It was nice this morning, it was 76 here at 6am, first time for a low belo…
  • I have one of those stainless steel eggcessory storage centers....
  • sorry, I'd rather just by another fridge if I didn't have room for that one...  :-O
  • wrapped and in the cooler, 13 hours... see, it did happen....
  • That seems fast but I usually put my to the top of the fire ring right below the plate setter. I have never run out, one time I smoked a brisket and then cooked sides afterwards never putting in any additional lump. I also light a small fire at the …
  • started mine at about 4:30 am, shooting to be ready for supper, sometime after kickoff but before half time. JD chips are good but I prefer JD chunks.
  • Mines going on tomorrow morning at about 5am, family got tired of brisket for breakfast. 8-} I usually run around 300 for the dome temperature and if to much adult beverage is involved it might get a little higher or lower...
  • Durangler said: @YEMTrey.....Where do you find the JD Blocks? I find JD Chips at WallyWorld. Prefer blocks.  @greenenvy, found Tabasco chips at Cajun Grocers, it's good for poultry. http://www.cajungrocer.com/tabascoi-wood-chips-474.html …
