We’re feeling pretty super, how about you? The big game is fast approaching, and while we love football, we love an excuse to invite people over and cook even more! You too can cook like a champion with recipes from Dr. BBQ’s NFL Gameday Cookbook: Grilled Tuna Sandwiches from Seattle and Baked Brie from New England. Who’s going to win? You’ll have to cook both to find out.

    Good thing you have those pizza chains so your grads can get a job upon graduation. Go Bucks!

  • New Egghead in Charlotte


    I'be been lurking for about a month or 2, and wanted to say thank you.  My wife bought me a Large BGE for my birthday.  

    For those in the Charlotte area, I'd give a shout out to Big Al's Trading Post.  They were very reasonable on price, and great to do business with. 

    In ancitipation of getting my Egg fired up, I relied on the wisdom of many of you and bought choice accessories (adjustable rig customer combo, rig extender, Thermapen. 16" pizza stone, etc).  Thanks for the suggestions.

    On the table, I took inputs from so many of you.  I took the NakedWhiz basic design, and made some tweaks.  I went with the Table Nest (great deal from Big Als), decided to go with a concrete countertop with broken glass aggregate, and aded the storage containers underneath.  Thanks to all of the posts from everyone with design ideas, and helping with the concrete countertop process.  It didnt turn our perfect, but I'm happy with my work.

    I've had a couple of good first cooks.  Filets & Brined potatoes.  Pork Tenderloin with Blackberry Sauce (from BGE cookbook), and tried french bread last night.  Good so far.

    I'm now looking at a controller before I get into low & slow.  I had thought about doing a PID controller, but stumbled upon the HeatMeter.  Looks to be an interesting project I think I can do, and do it signficantly less expensive than the CyberQ.

    Any Egghead every try this? 

    Thanks again for all of the help so far.
