  • Re: Royal Oak - had to buy some...

    My understanding.... BGE brand = Royal Oak. (rebranded as BGE). I could be wrong, I am sure someone will correct me, if I am.
    That may be the case, but, the bag of RO that I opened definitely had smaller pieces that my most recent bag of BGE that was opened.  I also noticed a more pronounced smell with the BGE vs RO.  
    Take any manufactured bag of lump and mishandle it, throw it on the ground a few times, or sit on it -- you will have plenty of small pieces!  It is brittle.  I think just the way it is stocked makes a difference in it's size.  I don't think the size of the lump makes a great difference in it's ability to produce heat.  Some (?) manufacturer's representative posted a good piece a few days ago, about ALL lump.  I thought it was on the money!  We eggers need to realize how this "stuff" is manufactured and can easily change size and can have some rocks in it, wires, bullits, etc..    My  $.02

  • Tried a new Spatchcocked Chicken seasoning!!

    Cooked a couple of brined local fresh chickens and used a new seasoning that came out very good.  Picked this stuff up at Sam's Club, called "MOJITO LIME" and is made by McCormick.  It is one of their "Grill Mates" products.  I brined the chickens for 24 hours, rinsed , then applied the seasoning eight hours before spatchcocking them, along with fresh corn, squash and sweet potato.  Cooked the chicken over the squash and allowed the drippings to fall into the squash.  This seasoning goes well with poultry since it has a little citrus taste in iitit. image
