  • Re: Is your egg area covered?

    When we rebuilt our garage, I specifically had this area made for the Egg.

  • Re: Brisket..... How I do it.

    Interesting, Travis.

    Was it juicy?  Did you have a smoke ring?  How long a cook was it?  Do you have a picture of it sliced?  Did you foil it during the cook or FTC afterwards?
  • Making Crab Rangoon

    Crab Rangoon is a very tasty appetizer or side dish, and can be fried or baked, indirect, on the Egg.  I make up a mess ahead of time, freeze them in a Ziplock, then bring as many as I need out when it's time.

    I made some last night, and thought I'd post what it looks like and the recipe, if anyone is interested.  After making them, I put them on a cookie sheet with parchment paper, then freeze them before putting them in the Ziplock.  That way, they don't stick together.


    4 ounces Cream cheese, softened
    1 pound Crab meat
    2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
    2 teaspoon Soy Sauce, to taste
    2 teaspoon Ginger, grated, to taste
    1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
    2 teaspoon Lemon juice
    4 Green onions , Sliced paper thin
    Pepper , to taste-------------------------

  • Re: EggHead Lunch in Killeen

    This is a true story.  

    Yesterday, we went to Killeen for the sole purpose of eating lunch with Mickey and Travis.  However, while we were there, a new 2014 Toyota Avalon caught my eye, and we bought it from Mickey.


    Mickey gave us such a good deal that, as we were getting in the car to drive off, I could hear the owner yelling at him.  She was saying things like … "How could you do this to me?" and "We're ruined !".  Mickey just stood there with his face buried in his hands, and Travis sat in the armored personnel carrier that he had "borrowed" from nearby Ft. Hood, pretending to wipe the windshield and not listen to the commotion.  

    imageAs we began to drive off, she started running at us, screaming "Gimme that car !  Gimme that car !".  I just laughed and sped off, giving her the one finger wave out the window.  I could still see her running after me in my rear view mirror (with blind spot warning feature) as she faded out of sight.  It was a great day !

    Thanks Mickey.  I guess you're going to retire a little earlier than you expected.
