  • They will both cook more or less the same. For my customers it is a big deal to them that the Joe is made in China, where many parts of the Egg are made here (in WI) and the ceramic comes from Mexico. BGE does have a larger more active community and…
  • If you like it rare, go indirect 250-300, when meat reaches 110 pull it and let it rest. Change Egg setup to direct and take it up to 600ish, sear both sides for about 1.5 minutes each. If the tip is thawed it will likely take 40-45 minutes from sta…
  • They are not just relabeled DP, they are in fact all original flavors, even though some of the names are similar. They are all good too.
  • Regarding the gasket, if you use enough glue to fill the rough surface voids and make full contact with the gasket, leaving it rough should work, I myself have always gone smooth. Have you every tried putting tape onto a rough surface vs a smooth su…
  • Another vote for Chicago Stockyards!
  • Resident Egghead, Big Green Egg sales & demos, Retail manager of a family owned hardware store.
  • The new gaskets from BGE come with self-adhesive, I would not put that in the dryer. Placing the plate setter feet down seems to put a lot more heat on the Gasket area also, making failures while doing pizza common. I would talk to you dealer also a…
  • Oops, just shove a bolt in each nostril and your good to go.
  • Anything with a grade 5 rating or stainless which is normally very close to grade 5 should work just fine. If you use stainless bolts with stainless nuts be sure to use some anti-sneeze to avoid binding which is common on stainless.
  • Great post and even better looking food. I will be sharing this post with many co-workers tomorrow. Thank you for sharing and Happy First Year, and many more to come.
  • Made for BGE by Challenger Designs. Very high quality, made of aluminum, weather sealed doors and quality latches. Price is high compared to other Challenger tables. As far as I know, only BGE gets the rounded end cabinets and matching bge green col…
  • Regarding not being able to ask questions on fb, are you using a mobile version of fb? If so, this problem started with one of the last updates that doesn't let you see any posts by others, all you see is their timeline. There also is not much activ…
  • What size skillet did you use? I think we will have to try this one. Thanks for sharing.
  • I don't believe it will be available nationwide at Ace. I have not seen anything in the WI system, only new lump I have seen is KJ. We have been shopping for another brand to add to our selection as we are uncertain when WG will be available again t…
  • Are you using the almond flour because you want a gluten free pizza?  If so my wife has a very good recipe for a gluten free crust.  We are going to be making calzones tomorrow for mothers day and I will have her put the recipe for the dough up here…
  • Looks great! Great price too, that piece of meat would be around $45-$50 around here.
  • We retail these. They are 8.4oz and 4oz plastic. If you are interested in these shoot me a message and let me know how many you might be interested in and I will get back to you with a price.
  • Not a huge fan of the rub, I like the sauces though. I really like the Tennessee and their mustard bbq sauce. The original is my third choice. The Tennessee is great on pulled pork.
  • I used some left over high temp basket on our last egg. It held the top on tight, actually needed two hands and a twisting motion to remove.
  • I have a 12# naked ham on today also, running a little under 300 with cherry and a bit of hickory over WG WW. No snow on the ground here, but a few flakes have been floating through the air. I'm just glad the week of rain has stopped, but it looks …
  • pswarren said: Ace is dropping WG for KJ. KJ comes from the same source as WG. Information from an ACE buyer. I bought the last bags of WG today from the WI warehouse. as of this morning there were only around 450 bags of WG left in Ace Warehouse…
  • Springram, it sounds like you have first hand experience using both. Can you share that information with us? Or if anyone else has used both, I'm there are many of us who would like to hear about it. And if the first person is wrong 50% and everyon…
  • Ace is dropping WG for KJ. KJ comes from the same source as WG. Information from an ACE buyer. I bought the last bags of WG today from the WI warehouse. as of this morning there were only around 450 bags of WG left in Ace Warehouses across the natio…
  • There is an Ace Hardware located there. If they don't stock it, you could order It and pick it up at the store. From Ace you could get Wicked Good, Grill Mark (royal oak, same as bge for half the price) or cowboy.
  • I'm over near Janesville, I was looking at those same two also. Or Dizzy Fest, which would be great, bit It is a little bit of a trek.
  • If he is from WI it may even take a couple weeks or more. At one point I could start a new thread, but could post a reply in my own thread.
  • I have not done it, but if I did, I would vacuum seal and freeze it first and then pack with dry ice depending on how long it would take. Next day shipping, even 2nd day can get very $$$.
  • Weber drip pans also fit, they are more expensive, but they're convenient as I sell them in the store.
  • The steaks look great! It also looks like you had quite a light show, what kind of lump were you burning?
