  • mark11 said: I've got a 15" I never took out of the box that I won't be using if anyone's interested. I bought it during the group buy before I even bought my egg and went with an XL egg so I have room for a bigger steel. @KenfromMI -…
  • High Q - both Mini and Large. No going back, ever. Springram Spring, Texas

  • johnmitchell said: pasoegg said:  was it fall apart tender??  did the basting liquid add to the taste you think??  did you follow the Travis method all the way?? It was very tender, (melt in your mouth) but still held togeth…
  • For a brisket flat, the Travis Method is foolproof. And darn tasty, I might add. Springram Spring, Texas
  • Ribs are a little like having babies......they are born around the world in hospitals, houses, tents, huts, so and so forth. Pain medicine or not, mothers have babies in all kind of conditions and situations. Guess what...most grow up to be adults, …
  • You got me there!  I have no personal knowledge of that. I do bake the original crust (not thin) with great results, however. I do have a ceramic deep crust pizza pan (BGE). I may try that one day directly on the Rig Extender to see if the lid will …
  • Not to be argumentative, but the creator of the AR says it works for him just great. 50/50? I will go with the inventor of the AR and my own experience.  Springram Spring, Texas
  • The 16" works just great using the Rig Extender on top on the AR. Use it all the time for baking Papa Murphy's pizza just like Tom says at CGS. Springram Spring, Texas
  • Enders said: Wow, I can't believe I'm the first to mention the LooftLighter, . I'm lighting an XL.  Hold it for 60 seconds and I'm at 350 in 10 mins.  It's over your price limit, but the WAF (Wife Acceptance Factor…
  • SteveWPBFL said: Clean burn is like a rocket aimed into the ground! Ha ha ha love it! Agree totally. Springram Spring, Texas
  • Twice a year I remove all of the insides of my Eggs. I use balled up aluminum foil to clean the gunk in the top of the dome. Following that, I use my garage vac to vacuum any remaining  ash.  Helps to have the correct filter for that. Never have had…
  • You should be arrested for providing such wonderful food porn. Just looks wonderful! Springram Spring, Texas
  • Very nice. Springram Spring, Texas
  • @dstearn - With an extra large, thee is absolutely no need to use a Vrack. Before I got my Adjustable Rig using the oval ceramic stone, etc., I found that I needed to use a Vrack in order for the slab of ribs to fit my LBGE. I have used Car Wash M…
  • I have both a 45 qt Yeti and the 25 Rodie. Love 'em. They both made the trip to Salado this year and last.  They are way too much overkill just like the Pelican, Engel, etc.  I drive a car other than a Volkswagen Beetle so I overkill on transporta…
  • Being retired is the best job I have ever had.  When people tell me to "have a good weekend" I usually tease them by asking them "Is this the weekend?". Springram Spring, Texas
  • Whew, thanks guys! You are correct. The diagonal is what makes it wrong. Should have known. Have not even taken out of the package. Will order the 15". Thanks again. Springram Spring, Texas
  • Thanks to everyone for their advise to my question. I went to Sur La Table late today and following @Focker's advice, purchased a Baking Stone.  It measures 14" X14" x1/4" of steel. Made by the original Baking Stone company for Sur LaTable. This…
  • Austin 40 years ago was a dream location. Today?  A lot of the charm, etc plus heavy traffic have brought it inline with other large communities. Still, better than a lot of other places. Springram Spring, Texas
  • @didawes1 - it does help to move the meat through the stall in addition to helping retaining moisture without softening the bark as much as foil does. At least that is the idea.....:<) Can't tell that much difference many times but that may be …
  • When you have brisket other than a full packer, I find the "Travis Method" does an outstanding job. The smaller ones usually have been market trimmed, etc, so the Travis Method provides a good way to end up with a juicy and favorable piece of meat. …
  • @Caliking - as if you think we believe YOU were the one to give Caliprince his bath...... Great looking cook, btw. Springram Spring, Texas
  • Fantastic....I will be on my way to Phoenicia by this weekend for sure. Springram Spring, Texas
  • @Shiff - that is the rack for sure. Thanks for being helpful. I was very lazy for not looking up the name of the rack. Springram Spring, Texas
  • +4 for Simple Green Springram Spring, Texas
  • I use one of those dumaflachies (sp) that allows you to hang each leg. No need to turn each leg as it is cooking. Cannot think of the name of it or who makes it but someone on the forum may also use it and be more helpful. Springram Spring, Texas
  • I love what brining does to chicken. If you you do not use an acid in the brine, such as lemon or a vinegar, you can brine chicken overnight to make it easier on cook day. We have found Tsunami Spin to be very good seasoning on our brined spatchcock…
  • The Smokeware SS Cap is a major upgrade. Period. Springram Spring, Texas
