Hop on down to your nearest EGG dealer this week to pick up some Easter EGGcessories! Here are a few that may be useful for Easter, the V-rack, electric charcoal lighter and flexible skewers! Now that Spring is in the air, it's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

  • Wish we had one that big here in Salt Lake City.  We do have some smaller asian markets which I shop at all the time.  We also have a chain of largish Mexican markets here which is also good for inexpensive produce.Kind of ruins you for the produce …
  • So, um, you were grilling at the zoo?

  • Yep.  Leg bottoms are about 17" across measured at the "feet".  The 15" top kind of helps police you to not position longer things like spares out where they will drip back behind the fire ring.  The wire is quite heavy and has a nice porcelain coat…
  • It's sold guys.   My apologies for the length of a FS thread here.BTW I gotta boast - bought a like new, used-once Medium with wood shelves for $140 this week, just missing the daisy wheel and fire grate.  Those are on the way via ebay.Wasn't a Cost…
  • I use this one.  Fits the Large Egg perfectly.  8 lb butts fit under it.http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004JF60CE/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER
  • Thanks for your understanding Nola.  I'm passing on the good bargain I got on this and don't want the hassle of packing up if I can avoid it. 
  • MQ does have dibs as first out of state buyer.  My buddy is headed there next week and could deliver.   I'm not going to ship via any freight service.
  • Buyer cancelled.   It's back up for sale.  Includes the ceramic rain cap as well. 
  • Sold pending pick up today.  
  • Thanks for the bumps.   I bought it cheap so can sell it cheap.  I got a good deal on a medium yesterday and don't camp/tailgate so don't need the portability of the small and will move it on rather than store a 3rd Egg.Drop off in Denver or Boise i…
  • I suppose I could control temps fine without the DW but farting around with it is just part of the experience that I kind of like.   I did grab one of the ones on ebay and thanks Sarge for the link.   Now to decide on the High-que or factory fire gr…
  • Gads, sharpening on Japanese water stones is as fun as Egging:http://www.chefknivestogo.com/3pcstoneset.html 
  • My heat gun will throw sparks with the best of them if I let it, moreso with WW than RO.Botch you are in SLC, no?  Come to east millcreek and I'll give you a demo.
  • The HF model has a crude temp control system - just a (barely) adjustable air intake grid that one restricts by twisting a plate and tightening a too-small lock knob.Really, it only runs on 'high' which was fine for my usage.It does have a run-cool …

  • Focker said: Save some cash, buy mineral oil from the CVS pharmacy.If you really want to, hit up a local beekeeper.  Received some this weekend from a friend.Occasionally I will take some wet and dry 320 grit with the mouse sander to even it …
  • I use this one - it's a really good deal and free shipping: https://www.overstock.com/Home-Garden/Maple-End-Grain-15-inch-Round-Chopping-Block/3303869/product.html?fp=f&CID=212978&token=212978-2129782012091113474173811363335384175745122628-1…
  • U_tarded said: I live in Saint George and I feel your pain!  Harmons has the best meats around here, they have 28 day dry aged steaks and some decent in house sausages/brats.  Can be a little pricey when compared to Smiths or Costcos but one …
  • Costco has some jumbo packs of all beef kosher hot dogs, but I've not tried them.Pork belly is for this and other asian must-make dishes:http://redcook.net/2009/03/01/red-cooked-pork-redux/I know two commercial butchers who seem to enjoy selling to …
  • I buy tri-tip, butts & spares at costco, pork for mincing at Rancho, very little at Harmons since they lost their lamb vendor, pork belly at Oceans chinese market on 90th and 150 west.  Welcome to life behind the Zion Curtain.   It's not so bad …
  • I've been bitten by the kitchen knife bug and cycling through a fair number of them to learn the ropes. One I've been particularly impressed with for the $$ is here: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/riar24gy.htmlThe AEB-L steel really does hold an edge…

  • I'm a drip coffee geek.  Roast my own beans.  Good *$ is fine, very good even.  Many locations just don't seem to get it right though and produce a burnt tasting brew.Lots of folks like to hate on *$ but when my work requires me to travel I'll pick …
  • It's a 4"x12", bought some 'crab chips' at an Asian market and peeled out the bottom with a can opener. I load fresh lump in the can then use the leftovers from last cook around it.
  • Don't know why the vid isn't playing.  Worked fine when I uploaded it.  It shows me using a pair of tongs to pull the pipe out of the pile after lighting the contents.   If you heat-gun the fuel without the can you might only light a small area, but…
  • "Western pattern" chef's knives and the softer 55 hrc range stainless they are made from are falling out of favor with performance-oriented (esp line cooks) kitchen professionals.   Perusing the goods and reviews at Chef'sknivestogo.com is a good wa…
  • No, not relevant to this backyard cook.   I killed the Season Pass to it after the 3rd episode when it became apparent that I'd not benefit from watching it and found many of the contestants unlikable.
