  • WeberWho? said: Check for a used one on Craigslist.  I've bought 3-4 nests off Craigslist for about $50 a piece.  If you don't see any nests on Craigslist you might want to put a wanted ad for one. Large nests are the easiest to find on Craigsl…
  • Chubbs said: Why not put in a warranty claim for the large and leave it on your deck and buy a mini for $275-$300 to travel with? Already did the warranty and have a new egg on my deck,its the old cracked egg I need a stand for.
  • Skiddymarker said: First bag I opened was excellent, one of the best I’ve ever seen. The second not so much. It had a lot of small pieces and a few really large chunks, bottom feels like it has a ton of dust. On the bright side, I found it fair…
  • Ok then no spritz guys are the experts. Pull at around 205 right? Us Newfies don't know much about pulled pork lol!!
  • No spritz at all? The last ham I did came out a little dry on the outside,maybe I drifted a little too hot I guess. Got up to 275 from what I remember.
  • Skiddymarker said: @CANMAN1976 - reading the reviews, many did complain about the condition of the packaging and the chips and dust, which many thought was due to the carrier kicking it around. Mine was delivered by UPS and the packages were in…
  • Just ordered a 40lb bag. Thanks for the information Skiddy I hope the pieces are bigger than the maple leaf lump I get thru home hardware. Love the free shipping.
  • hapster said: The rest of the story... Damn Hap those pics belong on the over of Gourmet magazine. Great looking cook. 
  • Wow guys thanks for all the recipes...i'll have to choose one by tomorrow so it can chill in the fridge for Sunday:) Oh and Skiddy I love your new Avatar.....go Habs!!! Jamie.
  • paqman said: That's one nice looking pie! I can't believe how much snow you still have.  It is apparently the same in NB.  It is all melted here and the ice crust on the pool finished melting yesterday. Crazy winter down here as we had o…
  • gmac said: You need to call out the Twice as Mad Tom. No one would notice the Corona. And nice pizza. How much snow is left?  We are clear but it snowed this morning. Just a bit sticking around though.  Snow is starting to go and there a…
  • Thanks guys I believe it was: 1000g 00 flour 650g water 10g salt  1pkg yeast no oil or sugar, very straight forward..cooked 600 deg. Nice crunch on outside and nice soft chewy inside
  • Looks good Hap:) what temp? Direct right?
  • Hey Skiddy hows it going!    Magic kingdom was great,the kids loved it but the march break crowds were unreal. Weather was super with 30+ deg  every day:) Lots of good memories for the kids.
  • caliking said: @johnnyp - Sorry for the delay. Had a bunch of stuff going on today. Here is a pic of my now-bent bolts. My bolts are bent more than this and my egg has a underbite ....personally I think it's just poor design. I did u…
  • henapple said: @CANMAN1976 old are your kids? Two Daughters ages 8 and 11 and they are not going to get any sleep tonight by the looks of things. Little worried about the weather as a snowstorm is hitting parts of Newfoundland
  • Hey Hap...great as uasual! So myself and my family are heading to disneyworld next week for the first time and I was wondering if you could recommend some cigar shops or cigars in the Orlando area ( duty in Canada is crazy) you were at Disney last y…
  • NervousDad said: CANMAN1976 said: The glass is sweet but whats in the glass is even better. It's an all citra hop IPA I made called zombie dust. It was the snowiest February here in Stephenville since 1983 where I live....crazy!! …
  • YEMTrey said: More importantly, how did that Zombie Dust clone turn out?  Awesome...definitely my best all grain brew to date.The citra hops are the most citrusy hop I have ever used. I have half the keg gone in less than a week. I have…
  • The glass is sweet but whats in the glass is even better. It's an all citra hop IPA I made called zombie dust. It was the snowiest February here in Stephenville since 1983 where I live....crazy!!
  • SmokeyPitt said: Some zombie dust clone to keep me from going snow crazy!!! Jamie. I am intrigued by this glass.  Silly question but is that just one glass?  It looks like a stemless snifter sitting on a shot glass   It's…
  • 14F and the egg is cooling off from a prime rib sear!!! Egg is at 550 and cooling right now. 20 cm snow tomorrow night!
  • So sad. RIP egghead brother:(
  • Ok maybe they should have stayed on longer. Will go 6hrs next time. Hopefully I redeem myself tonight with some wings:)
  • Didn't seem like the type of fat that would dissolve and they Definatly seemed done!
  • When its freezing here quite often the bottom vent is frozen shut also.
  • This is another reason to get the stainless smokeware cap as the lid on it always comes off and doesn't freeze on like the ceramic one does thus making it easy to drop in a lighted cube  etc.It's worked out well for me up here in Newfoundland where …
  • BYS1981 said: How bout a 6L! I like your style bro. What year is it from? Are you going to age it any? Thats just a pic from the interwebs but I do love that beer.Its a belgian strong ale so i guess it could celler well see…
