We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

  • Placesetter Cracked

    After grilling chicken, I went to put my placesetter on top of the hot grate and shut the egg down.

    The placesetter cracked in half instantly (Must have been the heat difference as I set it down very gently).

    I have a 17" heavy duty stainless drip pan and a spyder from Tom @ The Ceramic Grill Store.

    I'm going to see if this will work as a placesetter replacement.  It seems like all that is really needed is a separation
    from the fire....I'm betting the thermal mass of the placesetter is less important.

    Frankly, the placesetter is a pita, so I'm not really sad it broke.
