  • Re: What cook is your nemesis !

    I've been Egging since 1998-1999 and I will admit I have a couple of problems.

    Brisket! Just can't seem to get it right no matter how hard I try. Usually just dry-ish and tough.

    Then there's pizza. Most of my pizzas look like a map of Rhode Island and Massachusetts. They taste pretty good I just haven't mastered making the darned things round yet.

    Some day . . .

    Competition Blend was our go to for all cooks. Some people complained it "took too long to light and ramp up" but, we all mourned the loss when they couldn't get the mixture any more.

    I really feel this is going to be the replacement for CB

  • Re: First Steaks tonight on the BGE

    Sear and dwell is the way my wife and I like our steaks and when we have company searing at 700º or 800º is always a hit. Then choke the fire off and dwell for 4 or 5 minutes depending on the steak thickness.

    Best part is the 'burp' when I open the dome!! I can usually get a flame out the top a couple of feet long that impresses the crap out of everyone.

    Never was sure why people did a reverse sear I get great grill marks every time the way I do it.

  • Re: Here comes the hate

    Thanks for your kind hearted lovin' but i am not specifically speaking on just buying a kj...its trying to weight the options of kj vs bge. If it offends you, oh well. 
    Just so you know I was kidding. Do what you think is right. My next buy will be a Big Steel Keg so I can travel to eggfests B-)
    Big Steel Keg of what? Bourbon? Cheap Canadian whiskey? Will you be at the NH fest this year or are you afraid He whose name can not be mentioned will show up?
