Spreading the love this Valentine’s Day with your EGG? Virginia Willis’ three course menu is perfect for a date night! February is also National Chocolate Lover’s Month, so don’t feel guilty if you’ve been cooking a little more dessert than usual on your EGG. If you’re looking for something a little more savory than chocolate, try some Roasted Chicken Flatbread or Pork Tenderloin with Honey Mustard.

  • Re: First time short ribs (pic heavy)

    Those really look great. If you have a Restaurant Depot anywhere near you, they usually have the short ribs and Plate ribs at a very good price.

    They look great
  • Re: Pizza Stone...Does it make a difference?

    Thanks.  Maybe a stone, or two, will find its way under the Christmas tree this year!!  I guess you preheat the stone as the egg is warming up?
    Preheating the stone is very important. The crust won't come out right if you don't.  I use an IR thermometer to measure its temperature and make sure it gets to 450 - 500 degrees before adding the pizza.  I use semolina flour on the stone to make it easier to add/remove the pizza. Others use parchment paper or corm meal (I don't use this because it burns too easily).

    I have 2 pizza peels. One is wood and that is where I build the pizza and put it on the stone. I have a metal peel to remove the pizza.

    Now I need to decide what kind of wood I'll be using to smoke.  I am thinking hickory or cherry.
    I find Hickory to be too strong and like Pecan, Cherry, or Post Oak
  • Re: Grandpas Grub pot roast

    I've made this a number of times and it is really great.  I think I'll be cooking one soon after looking at yours.
