  • Re: Soapstone for Pizza?

    Soap stone is used extensively in the Scandinavian countries.  I lot of homes have ovens in the center of the home made of thick Soap Stone slabs.  They heat up the oven to a high temp and then turn it off.  It stays hot for hours and heats the home.  It is almost indestructible.

    Just use a basic salt, pepper and garlic seasoning and sauce it however you prefer at the table.

    I don't see how a piece of metal could improve the taste of a cut of meat. Might give better sear marks, but I'll save my money for lump and meat.
    Words from an educated grill master.  I agree 100%.
  • Re: Adjustable Rig

    Hey Steve,

    I know guys who cannot use a screw driver properly and they pay through the nose for everything they need fixed.  I don't mind paying for products as long as they are reasonably priced.  The Adjustable Rig is a good example.  This is an item that is easily manufactured with common materials.  The cost for a LBGE AR is $128.00.  The people selling them are just plain greedy.  If they charged $60-75 it would be a fair price and they would still make money.  I will guarantee you that the profit on that item is almost $100.00.  That kind of stuff just torques my bolts.  The Egg itself is very pricey, but this is an item that cannot be easily duplicated in your garage.  Refractory materials are somewhat expensive, but the casting process is simple.  I am not complaining, just stating the obvious.

    My brother just made a stainless steel spider for my LBGE.  I am drawing up an adjustable rig for the next project.  The prices for the Eggsessories are just ridiculous.  You could buy a Weber grill for what an AR costs.
