  • I gotta talk to my wife.  We go to all the A&M games, hauling the egg back and forth, plus we just did a cookoff, so I know she's pretty tired. (Plus she's pregnant)  Personally I'd like to cook, but I gotta talk to her first.  She may want to j…
  • I just registered. Are all the cook spots full?
  • seems easy enough.  Thanks!
  • We used one out of a can to be honest (like a biscuit can).  It was thing and I couldn't slide my pizza peel under it without it grabbing and ripping it.  Yes the stone was raised on feet, just like your picture. Everything was melted and done in…
  • Evan, I take mine to all our tailgates (season tix) and I put it in the back of our SUV no problem. I use some straps to keep it from moving, but its easy enough.
  • I wish we'd have taken a picture of each box as we turned it in.  My wife did a FANTASTIC job on presentation.  She is real creative and those boxes were beautiful.I'll see what other pictures we have.  I don't have many, I was too busy! haha.
  • JW, I had to take 2 of these from Frisco and honestly I just strapped them in the back of our SUV.  Made sure they couldn't hardly move and drove carefully.  We go to all of the A&M games and for tailgating purposes I take one every game.  I've …
  • Nature Boy said: Congrats!! That is a helluva showing. You hooked now? Cheers! Chris Haha I think the answer is yes and no.  Am "I" hooked, yes, it was a LOT of work, and I was exhausted Sunday/Monday.  I didn't sleep a second friday night ta…
  • Thanks everyone.  Tom's adjustable rig helped out too! Also DFW peops, Matador Meats in Frisco was a big help! The butcher was nice enough to go through 3 boxes of Prime Briskets until we found the "perfect" one.  It was amazing!  After dipping it…
  • Thank you! We have a boy due in December! My wife was a trooper to do all this 5 months pregnant!
  • Dang, I just bought a prime brisket for $5.99/lb. and thats expensive but its top of the line.
  • scooter759 said: Not sure where your located, but in my experience, don't get too exotic with your sauces or glazes. Chances are in those small competitions the judges don't have too much experience or qualifications for scoring, so it's very s…
  • We are doing exactly what you explained this weekend.  It's a local thing, nothing major but we are really excited.  We will be doing all the cooking on 3 larges. Brisket, Whole Chicken, Ribs, and Cooks Choice which we are doing Pork Butts and turn…
  • My main concern is what is the difference in temp from the lower grid closer to the stone and the raised grid which is further away from the stone.
  • MikeP624 said: If possible I would do the competition brisket in its own egg, and the two for the general public in one egg using the AR.  Unfortunately I don't really have that option.  I have 3 large's, but with my "egg management" I've go…
  • you doing the chickens indirect or direct?
  • Aggie here. '05
  • Wings doesn't sound like a bad idea.  Probably just going to buy a sauce, any special ones out there? (Besides Franks) Something different
  • I agree on the AR.  I have it, plus the slide guides, its greatness.
  • We did 6 different "half racks" of st louis style ribs. The combinations were: 1) Butt Rub 2) Salt Lick 3) Combo Butt Rub/Salt Lick 4) Homemade Rub 5) John Henry Brisket rub 6) Another John Henry My favorite was the Salt Lick, but the group's con…
  • I really liked that peppery taste, but I can see how not everyone would.  Just curious if everyone else thought the same on the pepper flavor.
  • I cooked them last night, I had to try!!! They were great. I used a venison sausage and some with a chicken sausage.  I had 2 packs of bacon and one pack was thicker bacon and the other was thin and falling apart.  Make sure and get thicker bacon a…

  • Charbroiled oysters is top of my list right now. Drago style. Got plenty of prep time just not a lot of cook time
  • I grill direct with Chef Paul's Blackened Redfish Magic. This seasoning is great on all seafood.
  • Surf and Turf seems like the plan!  I love me some lobster and haven't done it on the Egg yet, so that sounds perfect!! Is the lobster worth getting at the grocery store (Central Market type place?) or find a specialty place?
  • This whole thread started by someone who's been watching too many episodes of "BBQ Pitmasters" and listened to that windbag, Myron Mixon too damn many times!!! Why do you have to be an ass?  What's wrong with me wanting to cook Wagyu to try it ou…
  • Oh and some things to watch out for....Some might have a little cheaper price but then charge a good bit to put it together and some even require you pay for it to get put together.  Just make sure you ask about what all you get with the package whe…
  • Firehouse in Allen at 75 and McDermott.  I called lots of places and at the time it was by far the cheapest and GREAT GUYS. 
  • Here is the one's he made me.  One for me and one for my Dad for fathers day.  They are great!  The years are our class year from A&M.
