It’s almost football season, so we’re perfecting our favorite tailgating and homegating recipes! Whether you like hamburgers, wings, brats, ribs or something cooked with beer, we have everything you’ll need for the perfect tailgate party. We always like inviting friends to join our tailgates because the EGG is about community and having fun, so make sure if you’re inviting company you make extra - the food will be gone before you know it! Don't forget dessert, either!

  • Re: need a wow factor

     I'm want to do a butt but I tend to dry them out. 
    Sounds like you might want to check the calibration of your dome thermometer before proceeding, but I too would suggest a nice pork butt to knock their socks off! Run the IT of that butt to at least 200, rest and then pull after 30 minutes rest time and then pull and listen for the accolades to roll in!
  • Re: Just had new egg delivered. Have a question. Lid doesn't seem centered.

    Welcome aboard! It is only natural to think that your new $800 BGE should be perfect, but in all honesty 1/4" is no great shakes and IMHO is nothing to worry about. These bases and domes are cast in mass separately. They are not cast as a single piece and then cut apart, nor are they fine China from a jewelry store. If you feel better then by all means contact your dealer on Monday and see what they say and how they respond to your concern. It may reveal how your dealer will treat you in the future when you have warranty claims.
  • Re: Changing Table to LBGE Table Conversion

    Just curious, are you sure that is big enough to hold a LBGE? It doesn't look deep enough to me. As for bracing - yes you will need it as the carcass of a piece like that has little structural strength. Is the top solid wood or a thin veneer over a piece of composite board which is common to most furniture nowadays. More than likely the back panel is fiberboard or plywood made for interior use and the least amount of rain water will delaminate it quickly. You might just want to sell that furniture and use the proceeds to buy wood to build your table. I'm not trying to be a smarty*ss!

  • Re: Does your meat loaf ?

    @northGAcock ;

    They're Brinkmann. 


    Thanks...ordered
    Here's some cleaning hints for the use of that basket. First spray the bottom with PAM before adding the raw loaf. Then after the cook I find if I put it in hot soapy water and let it set overnight then cleanup using a stiff brush in the morning is a breeze! Otherwise trying to clean that basket right after the cook is a real bear!
