  • Re: Wow...totally different lump

    Recently we bought some WGWW and found that it seemed like it was harder to light than the BGE brand, but once we get it lit we have no problems.  Also FYI I was accidentally charged twice for my purchase off the WGWW but they fixed it immediately, and also told me that if there is an ACE hardware around they can ship to that store for you at no shipping cost to you.

    Welcome to the cult :)  I'm not sure if you used any smoke, but I really like Apple wood with chicken.   Enjoy! 

  • Just found my BGE's leftovers new best friend....

    Over the weekend we made some chicken breast pounded thin, stuffed with ham and gouda, (secured with toothpicks) and wrapped in a slice of bacon.  We made a couple extra since we were firing it up anyway and it's just me and the husband.  I decided to vacuum seal the extras with the Foodsaver.  I microwaved one of them today for lunch; just put the bag unopened in the microwave. 

    The result was the juiciest piece of leftover chicken i've ever had. I shared it with my co-worker since it was way more than I needed for lunch, and the dude smiled as he chewed.    We haven't been without a Foodsaver for years since we buy a lot of bulk and package our own quantities, and we camp a lot so its always good to throw in the cooler and not get waterlogged.  This was totally a win though because now I can cook stuff on the weekend and have it not dry out in the fridge to have a few days later.  Just sharin :)

  • Re: Just ordered a DigiQ.......

    Wow thanks for all the advice.  I might just do a boston butt AND some ribs.   We use the heck out of the Lord Byrons Butt Rub that Solson has on the pulled pork recipe page.  I've used it on ribs before too and it turns out fine.  I also loved the idea of the carnitas the next day too.  My spousal unit loves just about anything if it involves a tortilla. 

    I did look at the CyberQ  but just didn't think i needed quite all the bells and whistles.  I have to say that I think the BGE is definitely one of the best investments we have ever made.
