  • Re: Tri-tip and smashed red potatoes

    Looks perfect and there's nothing wrong with copying another Egghead's cook.   I try to use every drop of the juices for ajus. What are you using for a heat deflector beneath your CI skillet?

    I need opinions here. AWESOME TABLE. I have heard both ways....nest as well as no nest. I use my egg daily and crank it up. I have yet to feel the stone get even hot to the touch. Has anyone experienced this?
    You may not feel the paver/stone getting hot, but the heat is being transferred directly from the bottom of the Egg through the paver/stone.  I've seen a lot of pictures posted on this forum of burnt wood tables.  The nest or BGE ceramic feet create an air gap that remedies the problem.  You can also buy the terra cotta pottery feet at Lowes that work as well.

    @patrickcudd. Welcome to the forum.  Very nice table, now get to cooking and post some pictures.
  • Re: A better rub for Beef Chuck Short Ribs

    There's a lot of good advise already, so I'll just say that even though your rib pictures don't look too peppery, they do look amazing.
  • Re: Brisket using FB200

    I have a Guru and I always attach the temp probe to the dome temp probe.

    I believe Oklahoma is the only state without a blue county.  Ha!  You can't get any redder than that.
