  • Re: Kingsford Compittion Charcoal Birquettes

    I've used it in my vertical smokers and in my gravity fed smoker in the past after catching a sale on it and buying a dozen bags.  Never used it in the egg and don't intend to.  It produces a considerable amount of ash compared to lump.  A little less than blue bag but definitely more than Rockwood, Fogo, or Royal Oak which are the primary lumps I use.  Even though it produces less ash than blue bag, the ash is still heavy and dense, not the lightweight ash you get with lump.  In the world of briquettes, it produces more ash than Stubb's and Royal Oak Chef's Blend.  If you can't tell, I'm not a fan.   
  • Re: OT Hot water heater question

    I have a Rinnai that Ive had for about 6 years now.  Does it save me money on my water heating bills???  I have no clue!!!  BUT I love the fact that there's always hot water, it never runs out.  I also love the fact that its not heating water when there's noone home or while we're sleeping.  I've never had any trouble with it and I dont have to worry about it flooding my house like a traditional water heater.  

    I dont think it takes long to heat the water.  I will say the biggest complaint my wife has is that when she's rinsing dishes, the constant turning on/off of the hot water seems to delay the hot water.  But turning it on for hand washing or a shower takes no longer to heat up than a traditional water heater.  

    If mine bit the dust today, I'd replace it with another tankless unit. 
  • Re: What style flavor RUB do you as an EGGER prefer

    I tend to lean toward sweeter rubs with a little spice for pork / chicken and bolder rubs for beef. I am not a fan of the real herby rubs (is herby a word?)
