  • I meant I avoid the Egg completely with fish.   I cook in cast itron pan on the stove.   Always turns out better for me.    If using ss grill grate, you have 2 choices:  keep temp lower: 300-350, only turn once and oil fish and grate before throwin…
  • I have gone exclusively to cooking fish in cast iron, instead of on the Egg.   It gets a consistently great crust and I just get better results.   If grilling, though, I've had good results with a fish basket:  http://biggreenegg.com/product/expanda…
  • I'm sure I will like the cooler, it's just the complete lack of regard for their customers that bothers me.  Waiting for months, ship dates being extended the day of, taking money up front, only 90 day warranty.    It just all points to a company th…
  • July 3rd.   It was delayed by 10 days and now they are saying another 15+ days, after they missed yesterday's ship date.    The Order Status still shows yesterday as the expected Ship Date, but the lady I spoke with at Rtic says it'll be "another fe…
  • I only do 2-3 briskets per year, but have had really good results.  Honestly, I always watch this video before trimming as a guide.   Hasn't let me down so far:  
  • Just tug it open.   The gasket is shot and will peel right off.   Normal during clean burn.   
  • Dealers can be a big help, but in my experience, aren't necessary.    Call BGE directly and you will speak to either Bruce or Duane.   They will take care of you, guaranteed.  
  • Ordered the Rtic Softpak 30 yesterday.   Apparently, production has caught up and mine is supposed to ship by July 13th.   Looks like a solid cooler.  
  • Can't express how great the AR is.  I personally got the R&B combo with extra extender rack and extra set of braces.  I can cook around 180 cut chicken wings using 3 levels, can cook 4-6 full racks of ribs uncut, and can cook a full packer brisket w…
    in AR??? Comment by Mayberry June 16
  • Buy a mni max and set it on top of the park grill.  It'll be the perfect height and stellar results every time.  
  • X2 on the oil.    I wash and then add salt and some lemon pepper to wet asparagus.  If you have to use oil, try sesame oil.   It adds a nice, nutty flavor and has higher flash point.   Make sure voc's are burned off and you get a grilled/steamed asp…
  • Also, I understand the lightweight tall trailer and crosswinds.   If I were in Missouri, Kansas or somewhere in the midwest, I don't think I'd consider it.   But, with rolling hills and mountains, I think some of the wind worries are mitigated.   Bu…
  • With 3 kids, the bathroom we pull behind us on road trips would almost be worth buying and pulling it alone.   There is nothing worse than dealing a 2-3 yr old boy in a nasty public bathroom.   
  • Thanks.   What about storage for each?  I take care of my stuff.  I keep my things clean and maintained.  My first thought is that it needs to be stored inside, which is what I like about the highwall pop up.  I can store it in my garage.   In the h…
  • I don't mind tent camping.  Love it.  I thought the pop up would be the perfect solution.  I may have confused myself further this weekend.  The wife and I drove around looking this weekend and mistakenly walked into a new hybrid travel trailer.  Sh…
  • Agree 100%.   I'll take my boys tent camping and hiking plenty over the course of their childhood.  I've tent camped consistently since college.   But, the camper is more about us getting out of the house regularly on the weekends and taking trips a…
  • I really want to go.  I also meant to go last year, and something came up....baseball with my oldest son, I think.   This year, a nephew is graduating from UGA on that Saturday, so I have to stay in town.   I really want to make that Eggfest.   It s…
  • Agree with you, to some extent.   I've camped a lot alone, with only a hammock or a sleeping bag and a tarp. My wife requires at least a tent.  With 1 kid, roughing it might be easy.   With 3 small ones, it's near impossible and not at all fun. I wa…
  • jtcBoynton said: Sounds like your garage will be fine.  Give careful thought to the interior layout of the popup. Think about where you and the kids will be and how that interacts with the things you will be doing.  Some are more functional tha…
  • @jtcBoynton That's exactly what we are looking at:  king beds on each end, add'l pull out bed in dining area, full kitchen, full bath, etc.    i want the largest one possible that can still store in garage at home. Depth of garage isn't a concern.  …
  • Eggzellent said: With a 6, 3 and 1 year old (again) I'd still be looking hard at renting first for a few times while making sure that you're set up to haul whatever (first). I'd also call ahead and ask what the ball height needs to be (making s…
  • northGAcock said: Your post is greatly appreciated.....and allows me to reminice. Some of my fondest family memories are with our children camping. There is nothing like the smell of bacon and coffe in the great outdooes. Most of of time campin…
  • One more question, maybe premature:    I've read that having a good RV dealer makes all the difference in the world.  Some are great, others are horrible.  Same can be said for most anything, I guess...but if warranty service, repair, etc is needed,…
  • Thanks, C130.   I agree that more room might be better, but I really want the spontaneous ability to leave work early on Friday, load up the trailer and leave at the drop of a hat.  I live in a neighborhood and we can't store campers or RV's.   It w…
  • ChuckR said: Sorry my post autocorrected and I did not catch it. ELKMONT is my favorite campground in the smokeys.  Thanks!   I was actually looking up "Element" before seeing your update and couldn't find it.  :-)   Elkmont looks exactl…
  • Thank you all for the information.   One more reason why I love being a member here....like I said, like minded folks.   I may start looking around RV sales lots this weekend.    Really excited at trying this with the family.   Is it possible to ren…
  • Perfect.    Thank you!
  • You have a recipe for the marinade?   These look great!
  • How does the iron surface function... Does it clean up easily?   Is it as good as a stainless surface?   I'd like to be able to just scrub the thing clean, wipe it down and be done.  Does it need to be seasoned every cleaning like a cast iron skille…
  • You can never go wrong with Tom at CGS.    He's great.   I have ordered numerous things from him and he's consistently helpful, honest and has great products.   That being said, a few years back, from advice given on this board, I ordered my wok and…
