It feels as though we’ve waited forever for college football to start, and finally the wait is over! Check out our tailgating page for recipes that are sure to become fan favorites. As an added bonus, the day before Labor Day is National Bacon Day and we don’t know about you, but we like putting bacon on anything and everything, so we’ll definitely be celebrating that. It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here
Everyone's opinion will be different. My 2 cents. Buy a demo large (you get full warranty and save money). Don't buy a platesetter, take money you saved on platesetter and by not getting the XL, and order adjustable rig combo from ceramic grill store. With that set up, I can do 4 10# butts on my large. I usually have plenty of room for whatever I am doing, and have family of 5. Also feed groups of 15+ regularly.
I do have a small also which I added to take tailgating, and I will use it at home as 2nd egg if doing different appetizers or something.
I have the plastic bear claws for several years now, no problems with them wearing out. I also note the bear claws have a dual function--they serve as lifting handles for picking up and moving big pieces of hot slippery meat--butts, turkeys, roasts, hams etc. Just something else to consider.
