Spreading the love this Valentine’s Day with your EGG? Virginia Willis’ three course menu is perfect for a date night! February is also National Chocolate Lover’s Month, so don’t feel guilty if you’ve been cooking a little more dessert than usual on your EGG. If you’re looking for something a little more savory than chocolate, try some Roasted Chicken Flatbread or Pork Tenderloin with Honey Mustard.

  • Hey jeepster.  I lived in siberia, er wisconsin for 16 years and hated it.  I live in AZ because i dont do rusty cars, mosquito bites, humidity or winter.  And if i want snow it is 2 hours by car north of me in mountains.   It is hotter than hades …
  • What is this freezing phenomenon you all speak of?   I got a lot of sun this week at the Phoenix Open, and saw a lot of scenery up there.  Heard there was some golfing going on too... Tomorrow itll be outside, with the tv on back patio next to BGE…
  • I am making homemade sausage and brats (the meat will  be ground, spiced and cased tonight) and home ground burgers - 50% short rib and 50% chuck roast.  everyone else brings beer, and the sides so ill see if I can find some time to snap a few photo…
  • Those are gorgeous pieces of meat. I gotta go with consensus here- reverse sear for such a thick steak will not let you down!
  • 5 CFM works well with my L and XL..
  • Keyrock said: What are your preferred knives for slicing brisket? Last time out I had a tough time slicing the finished product. I actually ended up using the electric knife that I had just used on our turkey (it was Christmas day). It was ad…
  • I just got email yesterday indicating mine shipped.   I have tracking number as well so that is good...
  • Joke of the week in AZ: Did you know Carson Palmer is an accomplished baker? His specialty is TURNOVERS!
  • I use a long carving knife with the little dents along the edge so that it moves easily durimg slicing process.   I also slice brisket where the meat is moist, and not where there is a hard shiny bark section.  I learned lomg ago that once you get p…
  • Doubleegger and BGEBrent share much wisdom here.  I don't inject and I don't use mustard..  Rubs should be simple, but if you find it's worth the effort and it works for you, go for it.  My top-secret dry rub for brisket, which comes out stellar eve…
  • I hear ya.... I've  been scooping leaves out of my pool in Phoenix.  I am sick of winter!  I don't have the heart to post a picture of it but we are having an outside super bowl party and i'll fire up one of the XL's, the L and of course the MiniMax
  • Welcome Bill!  You will love the XL.  I am a weber kettle nut but the BGE XL has taken my skills to a new high level.  I use dual zone on BGE with a  vortex in the firebox.  So the sear zone is right in the middle and the warming/finishing zone is t…
  • Those steaks look incredible.    I just signed up for KCBS and am awaiting my membership packet...can't wait to go to RD and scope it out...
  • I hate cold weather.  New York strips in July in Phx when it is hotter than Hades with grilled corn and 2x baked taters is hard to beat.  Lotsa ice cold beer and a dip in the pool before the meat goes on, and after we eat works well too.    Yesterd…
  • myron mixon is jealous Excellent work!
  • Brisket's bark is from fire's bite. PLus, some spices on dry rub and that oh so important pellicle....
  • Carolina. WOW.... Denver will have its hands full Cardinals live up to their curse...paralyzed on a big stage.     New England was fun to watch but it was fun seeing Denver win it the way they did.  It felt like Denver pretty much controlled the …
  • That piece of meat is gorgeous.    Reaffirms the original reason why i got a bge in the first place.   Perfect cook!
  • It was chilly for us in phx sat nite.   50s outside, maybe high 40s amd inrolled the dough outside at my pizza making station. Ill take picts sometime and post here
  • thanks BeaverCreek Smoker.  I will try again in the coming weeks and hope dough cooperates...
  • chefs choice trizor.  XV.   I think it is xv.  It is out on loan right now so i cant check the number.  It was recommended by cooks magazine, the ine chris kimbal publishes and it was $75 on amazon prime.  Best money i ever spent.  Easy to use amd m…
  • Heat is uncomfortable but cold hurts.  Itll be 70 in phoenix this week, perfect bbq temperature.  No humidity either which is nice...
  • Saw him 20yrs ago during solo tour.   SMUGGLERS BLUES was awesome EAGLES are AWESOME RIP GF.  You were among the best!
  • If you can get it, el diablo mesquite burns hot amd burns a looong time.  Costco has it, amd you can find mesquite lump at and Mexican grocery store.  Its worth it.  Let it burn a while though so the smoke flavor burms off Also coconut charcoal id …
  • Costo prime brisket whole has been awesome.  I made two since Christmas, both 17 lbs+ and they were spectacular

  • Well that settles it then, no extra autolyse and no extra biga starter....
  • It would be difficult to bet against the panthers at home.   New england also appears to be getting its mojo going at the right time....
