  • I forgot to include the food information... I use these instant read thermometers mainly when I'm grilling and rarely when I'm smoking.  I use them to check internal temps on steaks and chicken breasts...
  • I bought a Thermapen and then wished I had the Maverick so I could do a side by side comparison, so I bought the Maverick also.  I still have both but I actually prefer the Maverick.  Here is my video comparison of the two if you are interested in s…
  • I purchased the EdgePro Apex 4 kit about six months ago.  When I was shopping for this stuff, I was looking at this as well as the Wicked Edge system.  While I think the Wicked Edge system is a better overall solution due to the way it works, it doe…

  • I have experimented with sous vide and, while it does produce very tender meat, it just ain't what I like in the finished product after a quick sear on the grill to finish it up.  The meat doesn't have the same flavor in the end.  Reverse sear is so…
  • Yes... indirect over the heat deflector.  I'm excited about trying this method again also. 
  • You could light your lump in a chimney and then dump it in the firebox and spread it evenly your ash tool or whatever else you might be using to stir the charcoal.  I typically don't cook my chicken over direct heat until it's almost done just to cr…
  • Ugh.. that really hurts to look at.  I have seen photos of broken ceramics and it makes my stomach cringe each time.
  • SWVABeanCounter said: Oh, by the way, great looking table.  All you people say you have no skill and post beautiful pictures of your tables.  I'm jealous, because I truly do not have the woodworking skills, but I do like my table. This…
  • dlosapio said: I've opened the egg to mist while cooking and the temp drops to 125 or so, then again it climbs past my 225 target. Dan If you can avoid too much of this your problem will subside.  The influx of air when you open …
  • I thought about the paver also and did a little research.  I actually plan to test this table out for heat under the grill.  I cooked a brisket on it Saturday night but I worked at 250 degrees for the entire cook.  Later I ramped it up to 375/400 fo…
  • Another method of reducing smoke is to leave the top vent completely open and use the bottom vent only to control your fire.  I do this when I'm cooking poultry to keep from getting too much smoke and it works pretty well.
  • I had my first experience with flashback over the weekend.  I cooked a 17lb brisket overnight Saturday night and it finished up around 2pm on Sunday.  I took it off and rested it and wanted to toss on a dish of mac & cheese.  When I ramped up the te…
  • I apologize to everyone.  I should not have let myself get tweaked over this. 
  • If what I do with product reviews is considered spam, i'd simply prefer that the post be deleted.  I thought someone might be interested in seeing this product but the results of that are quite obvious.  Some of the products I review are provided to…
  • I agree.  I can't go back and delete my post.  If the site admin would do me the honors, I'd appreciate it.  This forum is everything I was warned it would be.  I'm sorry for the **** intrusion here.  ****...

  • Chubbs said: Good deal man. I like your videos. Thanks    I have fun doing them. 
  • Chubbs said: @JMSetzler, what happened to your char broiler "egg". She didn't last too long I see. When did you go with KJ? I still have it.  It still works as good as it did the day I got it.  I got the Kamado Joes back near the end o…
  • Charlie tuna said: For egg owners who need the portability of their egg, I think this rig is a good solution since it has large wheels to safely transport their egg around the property. The only issue I can see is SAFETY! Since it has three w…
  • I got a response today but they didn't particularly address the questions.... ************* Hello John, I apologize for the delay in getting back with you, and I hope the response below answers your questions. Big Green Egg does not extend w…
  • 72 hours later and no response from BGE.
  • 48 hours later and no response from BGE. 
  • I sent email to BGE asking some questions about this and have yet to receive a response.
  • I certainly understand the warranty and what it says.  I think it's simply unfortunate for the consumer.  If I walk into a Sam's Club and buy a Big Green Egg on a whim because I think it's a badass grill, I'll get home, put it together, and try to r…
  • okienine said: That was my question, and was told "they do not know where they got there stock from". That's the part I would have a hard time believing.  It's too much stock to not know where it's coming from.
  • What I saw at Sam's Club today bothered me.  If I didn't already know better, I'd have believed that this grill was junk due to the way it was assembled.  The grill had a rather massive 'underbite' due to the way the dome lid was not centered on the…
  • Does Big Green Egg (the company) have any sort of official response to this?  Do they acknowledge that their product is being sold at Sam's Club and do they acknowledge that they will not handle warranty claims made on those items?  I have searched …
