  • Re: Help... How not to dry out Chicken.

    Thanks again for all of the advice. Just looked at the Thermapens, I'm all for spending money on a good product. But are there any comparable thermometers out there on a school teacher budget?
    I feel you brother, I'm a teacher too. With that said, the thermapen is worth the money. We use ours on almost everything we cook, my wife thought i was nuts for spending that much. It's funny that she uses it every time she cooks meat.
    Its worth every penny although the new thermo pop looks cool to.
  • Re: Buyers Remorse thread got me thinking.

    What are you using for indirect with your AR? Spider and pizza stone? I don't want my pizza stone to get drippings all over it and I am too lazy to foil the stone. I have all the toys from CGS but I also have a plate setter for each egg also. They both have their places I would not sell a plate setter if you already have it. If it was either or the AR is a no brainer but I always use my plate setters for indirect.
    I use the small 13 in stone on the spider for indirect. I also have the BGE 14 in pizza stone.

    I also have the extender for the top of the AR for my pizza stone. 

    I think I will hang on to it for my dutch oven and baking.

    Thanks for everyones help.

    Do yourself a favor and just order $100 worth of Rockwood or Ozark Oak. Its free shipping on all orders over $99 and they have super fast shipping.
  • Re: Egg Lighting

    Personally I would go with the MAPP Gas torch. I can have my grill lit and up to temp in about 10 min. It ran me 45 dollars with a bottle of gas and I have been using it for the past 3 months and still going strong. I have also used it a bunch to sweet some copper pipes for a new hot water heater that we got. Its nice to have something that can also be used for other things other than lighting the egg. Although mine was purchased for the egg.

    This is what I have. I found mine on sale one week for $45

  • Re: Chimney cap?

    Smokeware is the only way to go. Plus it looks nice to. I can cook 450+ with the cap installed. I only pull mine when doing pizza.
