  • Re: SmokeWare Cap. What Say You?????

    Factory cap has worked for me for years rain or shine. Not needed. If you got the cash burning a hole in your pocket, go for it. I don't see a reason to, though.
  • Re: cracked fire ring

    I've never understood why people don't replace them. You paid for the warranty with the price of your Egg, it's one of the big selling points of getting an Egg vs others and yet people don't take advantage of it. When I noticed mine, I called and got a replacement. Due to being busy, it took me a few weeks to actually put it in, but I did and tossed the other one and I'll do the same damn thing when it happens again. I'm not going to bother trying to piece it together like a puzzle anytime I want to clean it out. Ain't nobody got time for that. Except fishlessman I guess. ;)
  • Re: Brand new to the BGE world... couple of questions

    Skip the plate setter and call Tom. He'll walk you through what works best for the types of cooks you do.

    Get a thermoworks thermapen, you can thank me later

    and if you want to do pizza, get the BGE pizza stone. Others just break, BGE won't

    Other than that, just get cooking and you'll get a feel for what you need.

    Oh...and booze. Lots and lots of booze.

  • Re: 2nd Egg to pair with Medium

    I'm gonna go with the majority and say large as well but add in that if you can wait and there is one near you, why don't you wait and pick one up at an Eggfest? It will be cheaper and only used once on that day.
  • Re: Split your wings or leave them while ?

    I tend to leave my wings whole (flat and drummette and tip) while I grill them, less pieces to turn and then just separate the flat and drummy when they are done leaving the tip on.

    I used to pre-cut them and save the tips saying to myself I would use them in making stock, but it just never seemed to happen.
