It’s almost Halloween and if you’re cooking on your EGG, you may end up with more people knocking on your door asking for pork chops than candy!

  • Re: Temperature Accessories

    Have the Thermapen and Maverick, both are very useful and as mentioned already very different.  If I only had one it is not even close, the Thermapen without a doubt.  The Maverick is great for not having to go out of the house to check on the Egg but that is about it.  The temp is only an estimate as you never know if you have it in the thickest part of the meat, so you will end up using the Thermapen on the cooks where you use the Maverick anyway.

    No matter what you read in any recipe DON"T close the top and bottom vents and "dwell" till the cook is done.  I ruined some beautiful ribeyes this way.

    Also as stated above watch out for flashbacks.  I have found that I really love my egg, but the damn thing has burned me lots of different ways.  Flashback, pulling out hot platesetter with poor quality gloves, hot small pieces of buring lava shooting out the bottom vent onto my bare foot.  This thing is HOT and likes to wound you if you are not paying attention

    I have the AR, set up is straightforward. Stone and drip pan on bottom place roast as high up on the rig as you would like. For a roast I find the PS works just as well and simpler to use. You will enjoy the AR quite a bit I would guess.
