  • It pops quite a bit when I light it with the Mapp torch.  An ember jumped up and added a "thumb hole" in my sweet polyester Callaway sweatshirt.  Melted instantly! But, it stays lit, cooks evenly and imparts a good flavor.  I buy it 100lbs at a tim…
  • I centered my Egg on a 5 foot wide concrete table top. Storage on both sides was critical for me since I'd likely have food prep on one side, and a place for the adjustable rig/platesetter to sit when accessing the coals.  I wanted concrete for the…
  • I have the 17" and love it.  I want the bigger one for a permanent griddle, and we can use the smaller one for camping.  The little guy works well, but more cooking area allows for simultaneous cooks, like burgers, onions, buns, etc.  Philly cheeses…
  • Based on your criteria, do NOT get a Yorkie.  Total purse dog.  She's small, yappy, doesn't like other animals (especially cats), she's stubborn and pushy.   But she is AWESOME.  Huge personality and a cuddle bug. My wife wanted a small dog and I w…
  • Here in the Midwest it's common to serve chili with cinnamon rolls as a side dish.  It sounds strange, but the sweet compliments the heat nicely.  It's all I knew growing up in Nebraska.  I entered a chili cook off in Texas, during my year at nav sc…
  • I picked up the 17" at Ace for $69, over Christmas. I already want the bigger one.  The idea was to take it camping, but this little bugger has been used weekly since we got it.  First cook was bacon, onions, cheeseburgers and fried eggs.  The grill…
  • This is great!  It looks like it's themed after an old, hole-in-the-wall BBQ joint.  The real deal.  
  • Just bought my 2017 Tundra Limited CrewMax last Friday.  It came down to that or a 2016 F-150 Lariat.  The Ford definitely offered more incentives, and had more bells and whistles.  The one that stands out was cooled seats. It seems primadonna, but …
  • @caliking. The recipe was quick and relatively easy, but I think different recipes that require the dough to proof overnight would work better.  This still had a lot of elasticity.  It tasted good and for my first time out, I was pleased.  And you w…
  • It was my first day of student teaching. The vice Principal came in shortly after class had started and called me out of the room.  She knew I'd be commissioned in less than a year, and asked if I needed to get back to my commanding officer.  As a c…
  • My mouth seriously just turned on like a faucet. Bookmarked fo sho!
  • @theyolksonyou assuming you're talking about the new Lays Around the World flavors, those chips are so addictive.  The tzatziki flavor are great as well.  In fact, they inspired me to make chicken gyros the next night.  
  • So, so good.  
  • Awesome!  Thanks so much for the responses.  @AlexKeenan I'm sorry for hijacking your thread, buddy.
  • This makes me curious.  I'm cooking in my first Eggfest this coming weekend. Apparently there are a lot of things I hadn't yet considered.   When you say that the goal is to have food ready to eat every 15 minutes for eight hours...I take it you mea…
  • We caught snapper out of Pensacola this past July.  The biggest one we hauled in was just shy of 22 lbs.  That wouldn't even raise an eyebrow inside the haul that your pictures show.  They are fun to catch and incredibly delicious!  I look forward t…
  • Yes!! Bookmarked!
  • @bhedges1987  Thanks for the tip!  KC is a great weekend getaway for us in Omaha.  I'll have to remember that when I head down there next. 
  • brine, mickey's coffee rub, hickory/apple mix, 275 indirect until it hits 155.  Rest for 10 minutes.   Literally one of the best things I've ever made on the Egg.  
  • 1. O Brother Where Art Thou 2.  Caddyshack 3.  The Big Lebowski 4.  Dog Day Afternoon 5.  Heat 6.  There Will Be Blood 7.  Stepbrothers  (quotes from that movie are the one common language my teenagers and I have)
  • Any trip to Texas or Florida (or really anywhere in the South) includes a trip to Whataburger.  
  • I did the same thing, and had the same result.  I'm pretty sure my temps were pretty similar as well.  I pulled mine at about 185-190, and they still ended up being a little tough.  From what my friend told me, you can go up to about 205-210 and it …
  • They shrunk a bit during the cook. And, for only weighing about 6-7lbs each after trimming they took forever to come to temp.   At 6:30 they were at 133 IT.  At 11:00 they climbed to 154, where they stayed for hours.  Ended up cooking these for abou…
  • @Chubbs You got me thinking. At our local grocery store, a lb of ground beef goes for $3.98.   That would end up being about $57.19, if the butcher prices them as ground meat.   I ended up paying $50.19, or about $3.49 per pound.   Tough to say if …
  • The Moron Lamp never fails to make laugh.  Every single time. 
  • @Scottborasjr I hate to say this but I only remained a two-egg owner for about six weeks.   We had some friends over for Memorial Day last year after bragging up my deep dish pizza.  I only did a dual cook once and burnt the bejesus out of everythin…
  • I bought a 4" angle grinder for less than $20 and now wonder how I lived without it.  It's loud, and throws sparks and will cut through anything.  It's awesome.   Like with any tool from HF, make sure you buy quality blades, cutoff discs, etc. Typi…
  • Reverse sear and a Thermapen.  Give yourself time to roast the steak, take the temp quickly, pull it about 10 degrees before your target temp, sear quickly for color and then rest for at least five minutes.  And, buy good meat.  You'll still spend a…
