  • Re: Does Anyone Really Need a BGE??

    It sounds pretty accurate to me. The casual griller certainly does not need a BGE... but the converse is also true, people who have BGEs are certainly not casual grillers, either.

    If all you are going to do is burgers and brats and hot dogs, save your money and get a cheap gasser or kettle. A Weber Kettle for $100 will last a lifetime. If you want to step up your game, get a BGE.
  • Re: Looking for Suggestions for a more Peppery Rib Rub

    Why not just add pepper to the rub you buy? Or, pepper up your ribs, then add the rub?

    What "settings" on the egg do you typically to in order to get close to 225 grill temp? How far do you have the bottom slot open? What about the top slot and wheel? If someone can get me close then I can fine-tune it to get close to 225
    They're all different. Don't sweat the difference between 225 and 250, anywhere in there will be fine. 260, even 275 isn't a death sentence.

    The vent settings midsummer are different than they will be midwinter. Just work with them. Start at about 1/2" and go either way until it sits where you want it.

    * Put the prime rib in a cooking pan with beef stock, garlic and some other goodies (question below)

    No, you shouldn't do this. You will braise the beef instead of roast it.

    Put a cheap aluminum foil drip pan on top of the plate setter/convEGGtor. Put the roast directly on the cooking grate over the drip pan.

    I wouldn't put any beef stock in the drip pan, just let the fat and juices drip into it. If you want to make some gravy or au jus out of it later, you can still do that by defatting/deglazing, and add your aromatics then.

    Everything else looks good. Between the BGE and the oven I've done a lot of these. This will work.

    I received a BLOCK of this stuff for Christmas.    I'm told to use it as I would a plank.   
    That's a different thing. Google "salt block cooking".
