  • "The best gifts are the ones given without public knowledge". Just because people don't spout off on a public forum how much they "gave" doesn't mean they didn't participate. I gave to OBR and my niece was directly impacted by the tornadoes in OK. J…
  • Sad thing is our Armed Forces are not protecting "Freedom" like we were in WWII, they are now protecting the "Interests" in the Middle East for the Elite at the expense of our men and women in uniform and we the taxpayers. 
  • LOL, awesome video. Did he say he cooks brisket between 275 and 325? 
  • Been wanting to try them too. Wal Mart around here has a ton of them. Got a rack and I am going to try Nibblemethis' recipe. The video on his site is a great step by step.
  • I have been using both. Both are good stuff with the RO being cheaper. The Ozark has a more pleasant smell and doesnt pop like the RO. The Ozark is about as fine as you can get in my opinion.

  • Get you one of these from Eggware and you will never have to worry about it again.
  • Thats kind of what my house looks like but my picky family doesn't like half the ****. My SIL said the pulled pork egg rolls and the brisket with the TXBBQ Rub messed here stomach up but she will eat some nasty ass Spring Creek BBQ which is about 2 …

  • lewisj82 said: Update from the wife: She said it was still moist, delicious pulled pork. I had her put in in the crock pot this morning and give it a toss every now and again. She put in just the pork, no sauce. Although, I guess if you are wor…

  • I would be curious to know how everything turned out when your wife brought them to work. I am wanting to do the same thing but I am afraid to bring them into work the next day instead of right when they come off the Egg.
  • I am a huge Ozark Oak fan but lately I have been using the RO from Wal Mart and I'm very impressed. The Ozark has gotten to be pretty pricey around here. I will still use it though. Its just too good not to.
  • I'm on it today, got a Kroger by the house.

  • Went last year, cooking this year.
  • Awesome stuff.
  • Wow! Where do you get Machaca beef? What great cook. Love that cream corn, we do that often.
  • Tjcoley said: Nothing fancy here.  Just a nest on the patio. Jealous of all the great outdoor kitchens. Your yard is beautiful dude. Love a well kept yard.
  • r270ba said: Sorry to squat on your thread… But does this allow you to egg in the rain? Yes.
  • Butterfly them out flat and marinate them with your favorite poultry rub and Italian dressing. I use TXBBQ rub on mine. The cook more evenly when butterflied. I did some last week and used them for fajitas but you can just about use them for anythin…
  • SteveWPBFL said: Sorry. Here's Tony's! You can buy all the ingredients or they have already made it for you. We walked out of there with a 2 ft x 2 ft x 3 ft shopping bag for lunch. Seafood gumbo. Chicken and sausage gumbo. Jambalaya. Boudin ba…
  • I have spoken with the owner of Eggware on this because he was getting reports of the supplied felt gaskets breaking down. Personally, I have not had an issue with the supplied gasket after several high temp cooks. I am pretty sure he is kicking aro…
  • Tony's, awesome. Every time we head back to TX from a trip home we hit Tony's and stock up on seafood. Tell me you got some hot boudin balls.
  • cellie said: Here's what I don't understand: the tables are lovely, but can you still completely break down the egg to clean it? Occasionally I like to remove my eggs innards to get all the ash. How do you all do it? Easily, its no p…
  • Here go mines. Almost done, just have to install lights and a ceiling fan.
  • Oh yeah, almost forgot Brew Bachers. Its at Drusilla Ln and the Interstate. Bar and Grill dive type of a place but excellent food. Been there forever. Enjoy.
  • Thanks for the recipe!
  • Griffin said: Try looking up the video on you tube of Aaron Franklin doing a brisket. He'll walk you through how to trim a brisket pretty good. Like @travisstrick said, ditch the hard stuff. +1 best video I have seen on this.
  • Sammy's is an awesome restaurant with many different choices. There is one on Highland right outside the LSU campus going East. You are not going to find the kind of BBQ you are looking for in BR. Chimes has excellent food as well, there is one on t…
  • Nice brisket, that Grand Champion is the bomb
