It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

  • Re: Looft Lighter

    I loved mine while I had it, i did find that it lit the lump quicker than starter cubes.

    That being said, mine did die on me after a couple years - replaced with a MAPP torch, and will not be going back.
  • Re: What to you eat for dinner?

    You've got a lot of suggestions above, I just thought I'd add one more for you.

    Regarding your Chicken Salad comment, where it's OK if you DROWN it in mayo - but then why not just eat the mayo? 

    I've changed up my chicken salad recipie a little bit lately, which I now MUCH prefer, and I use less mayo than before.  Cut the mayo use down, and then sub in horseradish, and/or dijon mustard.  Same amount of moisture, less pure mayo.
  • Re: Calling @badinfluence

    Best of luck @badinfluence !  A food truck's actually a somewhat appealing idea for myself as well, i've been thinking about it/eyeing it for awhile now. 

    My original (pipedream) idea was to park my truck in the parking lot of ski hills, serve breakfast until 10, then go skiing....

    Seriously hope this works out for you and your family good Sir - I'd really love it if you would keep us up to date (at least mildly) about your progress.  The more you share here, the more I know for myself down the road!
  • Re: 15 inch egg. Unable to hot

    Oh - and try lighting your egg from the top of the coals - your fire could be having trouble burning "up" into your stack of coals.  I have nothing to support this, except for the fact that everyone i've seen, lights from the top.

    Give it a try and see if that helps too. 
  • Re: OT- Can I use my CI DO in lieu of a crock pot?

    Reallly?  Is your 7 - Quart DO THAT much easier to transport than your crock pot?

    I bring my crock pot to the mountains/ski condos every time I go out.... I've never had an issue packing it in my jeep.  Heck - i even use the CrockPot to carry all of my veggies, spices, etc. that i'll need for the cook.....  It seriously is pretty convenient already...
