Hop on down to your nearest EGG dealer this week to pick up some Easter EGGcessories! Here are a few that may be useful for Easter, the V-rack, electric charcoal lighter and flexible skewers! 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

  • Thanks all - I'm happier with it today as I have it for lunch.  I just realized I'm cutting through the slices with a flimsy cheap plastic fork. 
  • I've got a Maverick thermometer. In the third image, you can see where the probe was (upper left corner of it).

  • I just picked up the V3820 at Sam's.  It seems pretty solid and can do big bags as well.  It's bigger than I thought it would be.  Whatever you get, make sure it's got the accessory ability (maybe they all do).  There's an accessory ($10) that's a j…

  • Whether it's on warranty or not, you  might want to consider this:http://www.high-que.com/Stainless-High-Heat-Charcoal-Fire-Grate-Upgrade-for-Large-Big-Green-Egg-Grill_p_19.htmlI had one before I even picked up the egg.  I've never had air flow prob…

  • Be careful - you might get into a bit of trouble if you toss that middle one onto the egg.

  • Even here in Arkansas, Ozark Oak is typically $10 a bag. It's just the Harps stores that have a great deal. I recently called the Harps in Fort Smith and one near Oklahama City to check, and they both said they carry it at $5.24. So, if you're in …
  • I've got to admit I'm spoiled here.  That Harps carries it at $5 a bag, so it's hard to use anything else. 
  • Right - it's been a lively evening - reminds me of friends sitting around a campfire and giving each other crap.  I'm glad to hear the Ozark Oak works well for you - I had seen a few posts that it wasn't as good for long cooks.  I've still got a doz…
  • Evidently, Wicked isn't available here in Arkansas.  At least, their web page doesn't list any sources, so I guess I don't care if they can keep stock or not.  All I've used is Ozark Oak, but I'm about to hunt down the brisket information from CenTe…
  • henapple said: I think I'll go old school. I have a large us map in the cave. I keep job location, month, customer... All color coded. I'll mark the areas green where I know where Ozark Oak is wanted. I'll keep a data base of names and when h…

  • Cazzy - I don't know where you are in Texas, but Elliott's Hardware carried Ozark Oak at $10 for 10 pounds (Dallas/Plano/Mesquite).  http://www.elliottshardware.com/  
  • That's right - it's Home Goods, not Home Store.  There's one in Hot Springs and Conway, but not Little Rock.  I see pretty much the same stuff at each of them whenever I'm escorting the wife from one to the next.

  • Ozark Oak is from Centerville, Arkansas (NW corner).  Everybody remember to thank Henapple with a PBR!
  • TJ Maxx, Marshalls and Home Store are all the same place with different names.  I no longer complain about visiting them, because of the cast iron I've picked up.  I head straight to the back of the store.  They do have good deals on Lodge, and they…

  • That looks amazing.
  • They wouldn't get within 200 of the Eggfest demo price. And I'm always ready for an excuse to head to Dallas. I generally like Congo, but I think different salesmen have differing amounts of leeway. I don't think there's a better dealer around Litt…

  • Nope, I'm an Arkie, but I guess that explains why my initials weren't available on the other forum.

  • Little Steven said: LDR..Do I know you? Nice cook regardless! Thanks - If we've met, it would have been at Plano last year.  I couldn't find a good deal around here on the egg, so used it as an excuse to hit the eggfest in Plano.  I live…

  • There's a big ad at the top of the full site as well.  It looks like one of the scrolling links BGE keeps on their main web page.

  • Good luck - you may still get the egg started tonight.  I mentioned to the wife that you're headed to Dallas, and now I'm getting asked how long it will be before somebody takes her to Dallas for Uncle Julio's again.
  • Are you still abandoned in Little Rock?  It's less than five hours to Dallas by car, so you might see about working out a car rental deal with them and getting out while you can.  Also, there's a Whole Hog Cafe in the airport.  The original spot dow…
  • I'm mostly a lurker, and i tend to read posts every day.  Just picked up some lobster tails to go with some small tenderloins for tomorrow, so I'm here for the recipes and techniques tonight.

  • Your amount of smoke will vary based on which lump charcoal brand you use, more than how many chips/chunks you previously loaded.  All I've used is Ozark Oak, and don't get much of a smoky flavor unless I do add something.  Others will be along shor…
  • I might have to join the distribution chain, Henapple, just to give you a rest.  I'm heading to Biloxi in a couple of weeks (Little Rock to Monticello then Jackson and on to Biloxi).  I could toss a few bags in the Buick for anybody in dire need.  O…

  • Yep - spoiled with the price here in Bryant.  I live near the store where HenApple buys.  When I see he's passing through, I go pick up an extra bag or two, just in case.  I've got about a dozen bags stuck back at the moment.  The wife likes to call…
  • In the Dallas area, I know Elliot's Hardware was carrying Ozark Oak last November, and it was around $10 for 10#.http://www.elliottshardware.com/  
  • Looks great!  I need to develop some good marinades - or just search around here a bit and I should find them easy enough!
