We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

  • Houston may not be so bad after all...

    Welcome to Houston.

    We've been here in Spring, a 'burb' of Houston for 26 years.  Nothing wrong with it that a little weather tweaking couldn't fix.  Not so much, "HOT" in the temperature meaning for three months, but "HOT" due to high humidity and very high Dew Point.  It's the Dew Point that kills us.  But that's why they make Air Conditioners and functioning brains.  I know when to come in out of the heat like some people know when to come in from the cold or the snow or the rain or the storm.  I'm 'sweltering' in Houston heat in the comfort of a 73° room sipping a rum and coke.  You just have to learn how to live here.

    When I opened my email this morning, right there on my Pinterest Weekly was a familiar name - Dizzy Pig.

  • Dome Thermometer Calibration for all Five Eggs

    Yesterday, I decided to do a clean burn on the Mini Egg my in-laws re-gifted to me.  They no longer use it after we got them a Large. 

    While I was at it I thought I should calibrate the thermometer too.  And, not surprising, it was off about 15°.  I decided to do the other four Eggs too while I was at it.  Two were spot on and the other two off by only a few degrees.  Not bad considering all of the thermometers are original equipment dating back to 1999.

    While I was at it I also cleaned the dials (front and back), the stem and the spring clip that holds the them in place.  I used #0000 steel wool to do it.  They now look brand new again.

    Today I'll replace the gasket on the Mini with some Rutland gasket I got from RRP.  And maybe replace the one on Lily Large.  Depends on which gear I'm in later in the day.

    There's something to be said about Egg Maintenance.  You just feel better cooking on one that looks brand new again, and everything works the way it's supposed to work.

  • Do you even wok bro?

    You may find this helpful.  I put it together some time ago after seeing how creative our Wokhead friends can be when Woking on their Egg.

    I have another one in the works but I'm waiting on some more people to post photos on their wok cooking.  Be sure to share your photos.  I'll spot them, save them and add them to the next video.

    Good woking to you.
