  • Re: Smarter Starter Fluid at Home Depot

    Every "BBQ/grilling" I ever had where they used lighter fluid, the end product ALWAYS tasted like lighter fluid.  That is why I now use Lump charcoal and a chimney to start it.  I have also always heard "NEVER use lighter fluid in the Egg."

    The butt definitely had a different feel.  Not necessarily thinner, but when I would pick it up from one end, it would stretch out abnormally long.  I'm wondering if a lack of fat had something to do with it.

    I can be in Roanoke in about 4 hrs... so, I could do a 2ish lunch/dinner. It could also have been mislabeled by inexperience butcher/grocery staff.
  • Re: First try with pizza

    At what temp did you cook it?  No one can definitively give you the answer to that.  We know what our Egg does consistently and it varies from Egger to Egger.  I have an XL and cook it between 600-700 and know that it will be on the stone for < 4-5 minutes.  You will want to Eggsperiment for your perfect pizza Eggsperience.  
  • Re: XL Egg justified

    Yeah, the XL is perfect for any size cook all the way down to a single hotdog.

    With the XL don't you just throw in a 20 lb. bag and just light the bag?  =)

    When doing burgers and such just for the two of us and sometimes up to 6, I rarely need to light more than a full Weber chimney.
