  • My new F150 with a 5.0v8 pulls my 31 ft travel trailer and gets 10 mpg. I'm very surprised it's that good.  
  • Just bought a travel trailer and looked at numerous Airstreams.   They are quality built machines and worth the money.   That being said, I didn't want to buy a 2nd home.  I wanted a reasonably priced way to travel with my family and take spontaneou…
  • Oval R&b combo with an extender to get higher in the dome and an extra set of rods and an extra grate.   Perfect setup for anything I attempt to do.   I've done 180 wings at one time on various levels.   
  • It was in the brine about 11 hours.   Soaked in water for about 10 minutes afterward, just to be safe.   It's on now, raised direct, top rack of adjustable rig, so about 2 inches above felt line.   Running 375-400.   How long will it take....1.5-2 h…
  • Thanks.   I did soak it for about 10 minutes after rinsing it off.  It had a salt solution out of the package.   Didn't realize that until it was already in the brine and I started reading online. Hope it isn't ruined.   I did soak to rinse some of …
  • For easy transporting, I think I'd prefer a regular mini.   36 lbs vs 90 is quite a difference.  If space wasn't a concern, I still really like the Small.   Don't think I want to lug an 80 lb grill around on camping trips, though.     I wonder how e…
  • I searched and did not find that page.  That's what I was looking for.   As$hole or not, thank you.   That's what I needed.  
  • Multiple questions answered and personal opinions here.  I have had a SoftPak30 for a few months.   It's high quality and has held ice indoors for 50 hours.   Haven't done a hard test outdoors yet, but it's a fine product and does the job.  It seems…
  • Just read where the 733 has specific meat presets.    That seems annoying.  Can that be overridden?  I will only use on overnight/ long cooks to monitor my grate temp and meat temp.  I just want to set to 195 meat temp and let it go.   Can the 733 d…
  • What are the main differences between the 732 and 733?   My 732 was reliable, simple and worked.   My only complaint was the interface was clunky.    Is the 733 really an upgrade?
  • The Park Grill is the best restaurant in the area.   We eat there every time we are in the Smokies.   On the main strip in Gatlinburg, just outside the National Park.   If you've never been, while there, venture away from the redneckery and go explo…
  • Thanks for the replies.   I'll try the CLR and Bon Ami.  Already tried straight bleach with a scrub pad.   
  • 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 2016
  • 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…
