  • I thought that was the largest charcoal I'd ever seen until I realized you had a small egg
  • Just got back from CB Hardware in Cedar Park with 15 bags of OO @ $7 per.  They are really great folks over there.  Thanks again, @hoffmand for the connection. I'm headed over there later today to get a few bags too. Hopefully Cen-Tex hasn't clean…
  • Yes, they're worth it. They react fast enough that you can tell when you've hit the lowest temp in the cut of meat as you're pushing the probe in. With my old thermometer I had a harder time telling if I was getting the real internal temp or the …
  • Captpablo said: @hoffmand please send me the details as well! I'm interested. I just told TEggSun that he can find them locally to him (Austin area).  I didn't want to sound like a shill for my friend's store. But I think you can …
  • TEggSun said: While I know I am far too late for the group buy, can anyone tell me how to purchase one of these? Sent you a PM
  • Just talk to Chuck when you pick up your Ozark Oak.  He's mentioned having them in stock before ">
  • FearlessTheEggNoob said: July 4th? Crap. Stupid deployment... #-o I'm sure that won't be a problem.  Just go to the store when you get back and he'll take care of you.
  • TEggSun said: @hoffmand, does Chuck visit this forum? No, I don't think so.  He's pretty busy with the business.  At his house he's got two eggs and no gas grill so he's definitely passionate about eggs.
  • That's where I have been getting mine from I've talked to him a few times, nice guy. So just show up and ask for the egghead forum discount before july 4?  Yup, that's it.
  • TEggSun said: Great stuff, @hoffmand.  I'm going tomorrow.  Does he have them on hand now?   Sure does.  He stocks pallets of it.  
  • Ok, he's game for another forum deal on Ozark Oak.  His cost has gone up a little since the last group buy but he said he can still do 10 lb bags for $7 cash or check, $8 for credit cards since cc fees add up fast.  You can buy 1 bag or 50 bags, sam…
  • My friend at CB Hardware in Cedar Park has done $7 bags of Ozark Oak for forum members before. I can ask him to do it again if you're interested.
  • I recommend skipping electric sharpeners and either have them sharpened by a good vendor or learn to do it yourself. If you're in Cedar Park you can find a sharpening guy at the farmers market at Lakeline mall on Saturdays. Looks like he uses a be…
  • My digiQ tube has water/condensation in it after long cooks too. Freaked me out at first but doesn't seem to cause any harm so far.
  • I use grill grates on my gasser and love them. No flare ups. I tried them on my egg and prefer the stock SS grid. Guess I just want the charcoal goodness to get through to the food.
  • If you're trying to go longer than 2-3 hrs definitely preheat the cooler with hot water. You can also warm a couple bricks in the egg during the last hour of the cook and toss them in the cooler with the meat. Just wrap them in a towel so they don'…
  • I bought mine from him a couple years ago based on recommendations from another forum. Just found the old email. The owner is Todd and he's a sponsor on
  • He stocks Ozark Oak too so it's worth the trip :-)
  • hoffmand said: I picked up a bge grid from my dealer for $23.. Not to bad for a medium grid Is it stainless or porcelain? Its BS. Lol, sounds like it. List price is $50/31 for SS/porcelain
  • I picked up a bge grid from my dealer for $23.. Not to bad for a medium grid Is it stainless or porcelain?
  • I prefer Costco for everything except pork butts. Still go to Sams for the bone-in ones. I buy sub-primals of NY Strip at Costco for $8.75/lb and cut my own steaks. I haven't seen prime beef at Sams.
  • I called the other HEBs around here and no one else had CAB briskets, just 620 and 2222. Parmer & 1431, 620 & Anderson Mill, 183 and Lakeline sounded like they never had them. The 183 one had prime for $3.99 but I passed on those.
  • Scored two at the 620/2222 HEB this morning. They had one more left as of 10:00. Thanks, fellas! You should have bought all 3 They had a limit of 2 per person. I think I heard them talking about some guy smelling of smoke and whiskey who tried…

  • lousubcap said: @Fearless-check out the below link to the GA Mountain Eggfest and demo prices. Don't know your location but the price is in your ball-park. I saw that. Unfortunately no one near Austin…
  • CB Hardware in Cedar Park is another good dealer.  I've known the owner for a while and sent lots of people to his shop.  They're usually quite a bit cheaper than the other places in town so it's worth giving them a call.  And the new eggs already…
  • deleted since my photos keep getting flipped around
  • I got this one since it had more cross-bars and was only $1 more. I use one for a raised grid like your photo and trimmed the sides off two mor…
  • I got 16.5" grates at Academy for $4-5. Bring a tape measure because they label them as 18" since they are used in 18" grills.
  • I checked with my local dealer and their price was $219+ tax. I was expecting it to be more. Does anyone know if this is the going rate for a dome for the large model? Yes, that's the MSRP for a large replacement dome.
