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: So $399 for mini is pre-price increase?

    You don't need the high que for the mini it gets plenty hot with the stock grate.
    Mine didnt......the High-Que made a big difference.  I'm certainly not doubting your experience.  Maybe mine is different or something.  It is a few years old.  Maybe the newer ones get more air.  I was able to get mine pretty hot before the High-Que but now it gets there faster.  I use it for a lot of quick cooks.  One  could get by without the woo if the grid was raised and indirect was not a consideration.  For me the additional toys were well worth it.

    I have a LARGE collection of cookbooks and by far my favorite is a Houston Junior League cookbook " Stop and Smell the Rosemary".
    Like GrannyX4 I like regional cookbooks.  I always comb used book store when I travel.  The best that I've found is "Bayou Cuisine".  It was put out years ago by the Episcopal Church of Indianola Mississippi, the home of BB King and Craig Claiborne.  It is a bible of southern cooking.  Another favorite is "Sea Island Seasons" published by the Beaufort county Open Land Trust of Beaufort, South Carolina.  A third is "Seasonal Florida" ....."a taste of life in north Florida".  I recently scored a few from my aunts estate in New Mexico.  I'm looking forward to some of those regional recipes.

    Truthfully though, even though I collect cookbooks I usually do an internet search if I'm looking for a recipe.  I look at several and then work off of those.

    Yes I have heard good things about Blue Jeans.  Like "Monster" the company that started it all, BJ are reported to be really good budget cables.   Some of these DYI cables can be far superior however.  The best cables are all hand made because of the difficulty in assembly.  This is one reason why superior cables start getting expensive.
