  • Awesome dish. I visited Vietnam a few years ago and took a cooking class where this was the main dish we made. I prefer the Hanoi style Bun cha which includes little meatballs as well as the thin pork rasher. A good Hanoi recipe is http://ediblyasia…
  • Been wanting to try Franklins. No excuse not to since I live in Round Rock, but damn I hate lines. There are lots of good bbq places in Austin I don't have to stand in a long line for to buy.. Will certainly try J Mueller's, thanks for the heads up.
  • I started a similar thread a couple months back when my fiance and I started the South Beach diet phase 1, which is kinda tough initially, but easy to get into since it does allow for a lot of egging. I managed to keep off 10lbs from the first time …
  • Great recipe, will be trying it very soon!

  • Thanks again for the useful tips. All good to keep in mind. As I has mentioned, I have made a few changes after the first 2 weeks of low carb kick start and have managed to start cutting out a lot of those tempting bad things, which we sometimes don…
  • Thank you Doc, I have been cooking very similar foods. Hard to make an effort to cut out the rice/potatoes/pasta, but am getting there. Have looked at a number of your posts and has helped somewhat. 
  • Thanks for the info, very useful. After going through the first phase of this diet, it was actually not too bad. Lost a few pounds and have changed the diet slightly. I guess the secret to it really is not a totally low or no carb diet, but rather t…
  • Just picked one up at Lowes, yet to try it, but for the price it is worth the risk.
  • Had to drive through to Houston for a lunch meeting today. Spending the night before I head back to Austin.. pleasantly surprised with a Bourbon bar next to the hotel.. trying a Pappy 20yr after all the talk of it. Pretty dang decent. Might need to …
  • Good to see I am not completely insane, some of my affordable fav's been mentioned here. My go to bourbon for the last few months has been Bulleit, but I do enjoy the Basil Hayden's and Jefferson. These have me completely off Jack. Another Fav is El…
  • Since there are so many Bourbon drinkers, is it worthwhile dong a Bourbon thread for us to put down comments/pics of new or good Bourbon's? I have only been drinking Bourbon for the past few years and love me some small batch, so always looking for …
  • Igrill is on a deal on groupon.. I have mine coming!
  • Renewing an old thread, but after doing some research on BGE and Lump in the UAE I found this thread. I am considering an offer to head over to Dubai for a few years and don't want to go without my Egg. Have not found a vendor there, so may try and …
  • Good looking pistol.. (and the stir fry) sure hope you don't use anything by Frog Lube on it! I put the Lube away. Tomorrow I might get in the safe and get another goodie out I will show you mine if you show me yours :) All in the interest of Eggin…
  • Good looking pistol.. (and the stir fry) sure hope you don't use anything by Frog Lube on it!
  • Thanks for the tips. Been pretty decent so far. The first couple weeks of SB sucks, but have been egging a lot and just making low fat meats, which have been fine. Looking forward to the occasional rib or brisket for sure, no way I am giving that up…
  • Well, exactly 24 hours after ordering my wok and spider I had Fedex drop ir off.. Awesome service from ceramic grill store! Season it today and hope to use if for dinner on Sunday. 
  • I have home an all electric beer brewing setup I have built.  It uses water heater elements and a PID controller to maintain very precise temperature control.  I could see adapting or even using this system for this purpose.  You would just need a b…
  • Will have to report back once I get the kit and give it a try...
  • awww dang it.. How could I not want this.. Wok and spider ordered, looking forward to using it.
  • Been following the SV threads and seems like something pretty cool to do. I am running out of room for kitchen gadgets and had me thinking... why can't you use a slow cooker/crock pot to sous vide? I did a google search and found a system where you …
  • Cen-Tex, as I had mentioned I have also just recently bought a bag. Will be using it on Friday for a brisket. Just curious how long you leave the lump burning before you stabilize it at temp? I noticed with the lump from BBQ Galore this passed weeke…
  • I picked up a really nice piece of granite at a place who does kitchen counters. It is the right depth, but a bit too long on the width. It only covers the section to the left of the egg on table. Don't mind it too long but the cover does not fit pr…
  • Just what I had in mind. Will get some prices today! Thanks for the pic
  • i just find it tastes like lamb, though. not game. :)>- Yep, you would think it tastes like lamb because the US has imported lamb from Australia and New Zealand for years and only more recently has domestic sheep farming increased. I grew up wi…
  • Just picked up 40lb from Sam's club for $14, will be giving it a try soon enough 
  • For info, I emailed BGE about my gasket, which looks similar to yours. They got back to me and mailed one of within a few days. I have it here ready to go for when mine does end up going.. Might be worth getting one on stand by
  • Thanks for the comments guys. I have been doing a lot of veggies on the grill. Mostly squash, peppers, onions and asparagus. All good, but I really need to vary it a bit. I do have a wok from a different cooker, which I would like to try out. Will c…

  • I have not yet tried a leg of lamb on the egg, but have made many over the years over the coals on my pit. Love some good lamb, and gotta say it also depends a lot on the quality of the meat. I never ever buy the stuff from Australia or New Zeland a…
