I don't see what the fuss is about with raised direct. I've done chicken both ways and see no difference. Enlighten me oh great eggheads.
I think it's an easier cook raised direct. Less likely to burn your meat when you walk away for a minute.
NICE cook. Wings on the egg are amazing. Can you share the 1 hour brine you used?
I use a basic brine. Nothing special. I do it to all chicken I grill and it's really changed the flavor and juiciness.
1 gallon water
1 cup kosher salt
1/2 cup s…
Here's what I use.
Great company and fast shipping. Works wonderful. Makes some cooks easier. Helps with direct or indirect cooks.
Worth the money if you don't wanna use fire bricks …
Not exactly positive how long they were on for. I kind of winged it. (No pun intended)

I've always had troubles with hamburgers until just recently. I used to cook high heat until they were done, but I always messed up somehow. Now I cook at 300 degrees direct heat on the normal grid. I usually throw a Mesquite wood chunk on as well. …
The first time I cooked on the Egg I watched the instructional video and followed their instructions for lighting the egg. I lit the egg, left the bottom vent and top wide open. Ten minutes later I walked outside and saw flames shooting out of the t…

What does everyone else use to pull their pork? I hate pulling my pork as I do not have the proper tools. All I have is two forks. Works horribly. Takes me all day to pull my pork.
Serious question. Not just humor.
