Hop on down to your nearest EGG dealer this week to pick up some Easter EGGcessories! Here are a few that may be useful for Easter, the V-rack, electric charcoal lighter and flexible skewers! Now that Spring is in the air, it's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

  • Wood for Salmon

    Cedar is pretty classic with salmon too. I've used maple too. Pecan would probably be pretty good, that is usually my go to wood for just about everything.
  • Does anyone actually use the BGE lump?

    Is ro and BGE made by the same company? Idk, but Chevrolet makes corvette and chevette. Price per pound isn't the only factor. Taste and cooks per pound are important also.
    I know that Wegmans and BGE are both RO products. I know that the BGE burned clear quicker than fresh Wgmans lump, but my BGE dealer also has it around $1.50/lb, Wegmans is 65 cents/lb. plus going to my dealer is an extra stop. So in my case, the choice is easy.

    What @henapple says is true, you have to factor in everything. All things being equal, I've forums that BGE is a bit better than straight RO or the Wegmans brand. But I don't think it is 3 times as good (price, plus extra stop when running errands).
