It’s almost football season, so we’re perfecting our favorite tailgating and homegating recipes! Whether you like hamburgers, wings, brats, ribs or something cooked with beer, we have everything you’ll need for the perfect tailgate party. We always like inviting friends to join our tailgates because the EGG is about community and having fun, so make sure if you’re inviting company you make extra - the food will be gone before you know it! Don't forget dessert, either!

I suggest you invest in the replacement charcoal fire grate sold by High Que, it really improves airflow resulting in faster lighting. The Mapp Torch is easy and fast also, combined with the new grate and you will cut down your start up time.
Cooked up a couple of sweet potatoes tonight. Washed, poked holes in them with fork, rubbed with garlic EVOO, kosher salt and pepper. Grilled at 400 indirect for an hour. This was a first for me on the egg, they were good and easy to make!
I use a MAP torch, light one spot in the center of the lump. Bottom vent is wide open, lid is closed and nothing on top....I think it creates a draft this way and lights quicker than when I leave the lid open. When it reaches temp I close down bottom vent and and stabilize with the adjustable cap but most of my temp controlis done with the bottom vent.
