It’s time to kick back, relax and enjoy the aromas of fresh smoked meat as we sail towards summer. Not sure what to smoke? Try Down & Dizzy Pork Shoulder or Smoked Spanish Chicken. Now that Spring is in the air, it's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

  • Local walmart here had them today(Rochester, ny). Picked up three bags since I had my toddler with me. Going to go back and load up w trailer later tonight or tomorrow. $8 for the 17.6lb bag of RO.
  • I have an igloo and a coleman 5 day extreme cooler. they are great,but you have to either pre-cool them (fill them with ice packs for a few hours/or dump a load of ice in them), or fill them to the brim with already cooled things from the fridge or …
  • YEMTrey said: There's a restaurant supply store in the city that buys all liquidated equipment from closed restaurants etc. They have a warehouse full of stainless tables and such.  Gonna stop in and see what they have.  Ideally, a small tabl…
  • Looks tasty! Havent been able to bring myself to spend the coin on the prime packer as I have had great luck with the choice packers I usually get. Thats a nice setup you have for the brisket. There are many ways to do it. As long as you find one th…
  • I picked up a few bags at HD of cowboy early this year to test out. I have to say I didn't like it. It sparked and smoked forever and had an off taste. The sizing was ok but it didn't last as long as I hoped. I have had good luck this year with Fr…
  • Seems a good deal. I built mine out of spanish cedar and materials alone were between $350-$500. For storage you could also do big tupperware/sterilite tubs they sell at target/walmart etc. Locking lids and waterproof. just slide under the table. I…
  • If you get further south and west there are multiple dealers in Rochester. Gallea's in Pittsford is a new dealer and seem nice when I have been in. Mileage Master in Penfield is where I bought mine. Have a good selection but they are sort of old sch…
  • I think that is a matter of personal preference. I have a non-ventilated cover over my weber and it is just fine. It is breathable to some extent and open on the bottom. I have a cover store cover on my egg and table that has a mesh vent around the …
  • Looks pretty good! nice charring on the pizza too.
  • That sucks man. I know how that is. Had a dealer try to rip my wife off with a similar deal. I don't understand this mentality. They are living in the past not realizing that they are going to get not just a bad review that you spread to your family…
  • I did something similar with a torch and had all the fun of sparking and popping. Burned hundreds of little spark holes in my table top.  I now use a $7 harbor freight heat gun that gets her going quickly with minimal fuss and sparking.
  • I have my XL in the nest, and had the feeling of it rocking back when opening the dome when it was just sitting on the stone. The base never actually lifted from the stone. Now that its in the table nest, it doesn't feel as likely to rock back, and …

  • Oohh, those look great. I mus tnot have had it hot enough last time I tried. They turned out kinda crappy. Have to bump the heat. I do similar setup, but with the CGW Woo with a stone below, and a stone on the grill grid. Similar idea, but mine isn'…
  • Nice, Looks Tasty.
  • Beaumonty said: I just read it. I read it like Cen-Tex did, the braising solves some variables that I might miss.  I'm, surprise, surprise, down in Beaumont.  Allegro has been around for years and I already have a good rub.  I have a slight g…
  • I'll second the reverse sear method, works great! And I will also agree that shutting down the vents with food in the egg is something that you should never do. It results in some really gross flavors.
  • Looks good. haven't done a tenderloin yet, maybe I will throw some on soon.
  • Nice jig! I just held mine with a hot mitt, but that would sure be easy. Mine surprisingly was right on when I checked it when new last summer. Got lucky I guess. Have to check it again soon.
  • Nice table,gotta love the kreg jig! There isn't a visible screw on my table because of it. Best wood working tool I have ever purchased.
  • Yes you can register with serial number only. They may be tough to see on the back of the dome after 3 years, but it shouldn't be an issue. Just because your dealer went out of business shouldn't mean you are out of luck. There is a chance that your…
  • We love camping as a family.  My Daughter was 6 months old the first time we went camping, my son will be about 11 months old this year on our first trip of season. Have a few days reserved at waterfront sites at Golden Beach SP on Raquette Lake in …
  • If that's homemade, dammmnn. That's a nice piece of kit. eprice said: Love to see your Homemade Smoke Generators And thats a good idea. I assume thats a heat gun in the can? Do you separate the chunks or chips somehow from the end of th…
  • Yeah, I've got a friend that loves his sleep number. We have a costco Tempurpedic knock off. It is very comfortable, but is not as firm as I would like. Might think about switching here down the road.
  • I cured a big pork belly and did a hot smoke on the egg and a cold smoke in a barrel smoker this fall. The cold smoke had a different flavor and texture, good too. I didn't notice any difference in shelf life, although they both only were in the fri…
  • Wow! that sounds seriously delicious, and different in a good way. 
  • I have found that it is not necessarily a linear scale. I find that the additional time to finish as the butt gets larger is not a simple addition of time. I would keep a close eye on it. I have had some of them get done hours and hours earlier than…
  • If it is not too late just open the lower draft door, open the vent on top, and build a newspaper (or other type of) fire in the lower chamber. With enough fire and heat it will defrost the gasket enough to open it. I have had to do that several tim…
  • Franks also makes a bottled "buffalo wing sauce"which is better than the homemade mix it yourself with butter. When mixing at home I have found that if i use a butter substitute, like "smart balance" it turns out great. That saves on some fat, cal…
  • yeah, those look good, nice and browned with a bit of char visible on the edges. made my mouth water just sitting here.
  • Look nice. It would be a good option to have to be able to cut directly on it. I would worry about loss of hot item landing areas for pans, pots, utensils, daisy wheel, etc. The wood could handle it,not sure if the cutting board materials could?
