We hope you had a great Labor Day and are excited for the start of the NFL this week. If you’re not a sports fan, you can celebrate National Breakfast Month all September and National Cheese Pizza Day on September 5. We can’t wait to share some awesome fall recipes with you all! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

  • Here's the page, but they're out of stock at the moment.  Probably just waiting on HenApple to make a delivery.$10.95 a bag.http://www.grillstuff.com/ozark-oak-natural-lump-charcoal-10lb.html?productid=4441 
  • The name of the site escapes me at the moment (I'm still at work, so my brain is in idle), but there's a place online that delivers Ozark Oak.  It was pretty close to $10 and if you ordered ten bags you were over the $100 mark, which got you free sh…
  • For Dallas, Elliott's hardware carried Ozark Oak

  • Looks great - I'd say you're going to become very popular around there.

  • And we'll let a snarky comment about blondes and roots pass right on by without actually typing it...

  • I like the Shiner Blonde as well.  It's fun to say that you keep a few blondes in the garage.

  • Well, I better go get some of it.  But first I have to take care of what's still there in the fridge.  Thanks for the motivation!

  • Shiner's pretty much the only beer I grab, but I've never seen it in a can.  Is that something new, or only in a particular location?

  • Henapple - those look nice - I'm up the road a bit this week, in Biloxi.  All bikinis are at a safe distance.

  • On the VOC, I believe you're looking at the volume of production.  There's a lot of new burn initially, but as time passes, you're just getting a bit more and then a bit more and...

  • Thanks for the recommendations - I appreciate it.  We hit the Italian place at IP tonight, just because we're staying at the IP, and if you get a chance to go to it (called Costa Cucina),,, don't.
  • Boiled okra.Prepared any other way is good, but no thank you on slimy boiled okra.
  • Looks great, but now it's after midnight and I feel compelled to grill a steak.  I've got to start checking posts earlier in the day...
  • You definitely do have a problem - a few of those jars seem to be getting a bit low.  Better work on that.
  • 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 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…

  • 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…

  • 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.
