  • Re: Burnt Ends Help

    When I have done them I take the point off the packer when the flat is done anywhere from 200-212.  I then chop into 1 inch cubes add sauce put in foil pan and cover with foil and let them cook 2-3 hours more at 230-250 dome.  I call them beef candy.

    We put our pepperoni under the shredded cheese so it won't curl like you want but made the way you do the oven it should.  Try getting the egg to 500 dome and then only put your steel in for 20-25 mins before you put the pie on.  That way the stone should be hot enough but not to hot.  Also if you have an IR thermometer you could check the steels temp, my BGE stone is usually 450 or so when the pie goes on.  BTW I go legs up on PS, I also use a PSwoo2 which puts my pie at rutland (felt) level.  I have used an extender to go 4" higher and that works, but just easier to go felt line.
  • Re: Is This A Normal Egg Glaze/Finish???

    Wow, guys calm down.  RRP has a very valid point!  Should one open the box take out and inspect before taking delivery?, least you be stuck with a huge problem.  Apple who once had a sterling reputation on QC, which is now slipping, still to this day has a 14 day no question asked return policy.  Companies are supposed to improve their products as each "new years" release comes out. So Crimsongators comments make sense too.  Sounds like the dealer here is half ass, Centex had a great point about replace and dealer sell this one as demo.  Bottom line, it is BGE's reputation at stake and they should step up since this is their QC issue.  My egg had a few missed glaze spots but NOTHING like Wolftones.  It is a fact that BGE's warranty covers less today than it did several years ago and competitors warranty are now equal to BGE.  Great cooker and love them to death, but I could just as easily probably say that about most ceramic cooker mfg's today.  And yes the old site, which is way more cumbersome, IS the basis for this site.  Without that this site would be a shadow of what it is.  Lets cook some food!! oh and have a adult beverage or 10.
