There are two very delicious food holidays coming up that we wanted to share with you all because cheese and guac deserve to be celebrated! Guacamole Day is on September 16th and Cheeseburger Day is on September 18th. Happy cooking EGGheads! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

  • Re: Best replacement gasket

    For those that use Rutland, I understand how you made the decision to throw caution to the wind, but how many warn their guests? Shouldn't it also be their decision?
    I actually get what you're saying here.  It comes down to what kind of person you are (yes, the purchase of a new gasket gets to the core of a man).  There is likely nothing wrong whatsoever with the Rutland.  But if you're the kind of person that's going to think about the infinitesimally small chance that there is a health hazard, you ought to spare yourself the worry and just use another gasket, even that gasket it marginally worse. For me, a letter from the company urging you not to use the gasket around food (legal though I'm motive for that letter was), is enough for me to bow out.  Knowing I'm likely being ridiculously cautious, I'd just buy another gasket.

    You have to admire the ingenuity.  Pretty awesome!
  • Re: Wood Chunk Question

    Like Chris Wang mentioned, this is currently being discussed in "Once You Get Clear Smoke".  The takeaway is that with wood chunks/chips you don't need to wait for clear smoke.  You can just throw the meat on right away, or you can add wood while the meat is already on the grill without worry.  The same is not true of charcoal.
