There are two very delicious food holidays coming up that we wanted to share with you all because cheese and guac deserve to be celebrated! Guacamole Day is on September 16th and Cheeseburger Day is on September 18th. Happy cooking EGGheads! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

  • Re: Calzones

    I GOTTA try them, they look so good.  Did you use plain old pizza dough, or is there a specail Calzone recipe?  I have been looking for the calzone presses, but it looks like they are simple to make by hand.  Excellent job and results sir.
  • Re: Grandma's Zippo (aka How do you light your egg?)

    What a wonderful rememberance.  I have little things around the house that were my dad's and smile each time I use them.  Same as some of my mom's cooking stuff.  He wasn't around anymore when I got my Egg, I actually used some of my inheritance when he passed to buy it, but I'm sure he would have loved it.  Thanks for passing along your experience, I smiled:) 
  • Re: What are you egging right now??

    Just finished a dandy pizza.  After lots of trial and error starting to get the hang of it and results are excellent.
  • Re: OT: The Masters

    We have 2 patrons passes each year.  If you have passes for all 4 days I would suggest you follow some of the past champions and older players who probably won't be around on Sat/Sun.  We've had fun following Mark O'Meara, Crenshaw, Larry Mize, etc.  Usually they sneak under the radar and very few patrons around.  Trying to follow Woods, Mickelson, or Couples is an absolute nightmare crowd wise.  Not worth the stampede.  Regardless take some time and see some of the historical attractions as well.  The Butler cabin, the Eisenhower house (only brick house for security), the par 3 course, and the Bobby Jones cabin. Take a walk around the clubhouse and see magnolia lane as best you can and if they still do it get your picture taken in front of club house.  Go over to the practice range and watch how the prepare or fix problems.  Walk the whole course to see all the holes.  Wear comfy clothes and sturdy/comfortable shoes, its very, very hilly.  Our favourite spots are the side of 10 green, 14 green, and 1 green.  Any of the par 5's you can get to tee boxes to watch how far they hit is awesome.  Pimento or chicken sandwich is a must as well.  Enjoy your trip, it absolutely one of the most beautiful places to do anything, let alone watch golf.  My pick for winner, Jason Day.  Have fun!!!!
  • Re: Does it make sense to calibrate dome and grate temps?

    I wouldn't bother.  I've seen in the past where as you start your cook there is a rather significant difference between the dome and grate temps.  As you progress though the cook the difference will start to lessen, temps get closer together.  However, they never both equal each other.  So calibrating the two turns into a moving target.  I always use one or the other, never both.  My experience.
