    Here's what I don't understand: the tables are lovely, but can you still completely break down the egg to clean it? Occasionally I like to remove my eggs innards to get all the ash. How do you all do it?

    Easily, its no problem at all for me to take everything out.

  • Re: Costco USDA prime steaks

    Lfgenergy, what Costco do you go to? I live in Dallas but I don't remember my local Costco having prime
    I go to the one on the Tollway and Park in Plano. They always have great cuts of meat. Some of the prettiest filets I have ever grilled came from there.

  • Re: Total Rib Failure

    Hate to hear that but it happens. Did you have your temp dialed in before you put them on and left them? It takes me usually 15-20 min for my starters to go out and to get my temp stabilized, takes even longer when it is windy. Try doing your ribs at 275 grid temp. I did 3 racks of baby backs yesterday at 275 grid for about 3-1/2 hrs. After 2 hrs, spritz them with apple juice and then do it again at 3 hrs. Start the bend test and checking for tenderness at 3 hrs. I could have taken them off at about 3 hr-15 min but I sauced them and let that caramelize before I took them off. Also, as others have stated, if you don't have a Maverick, get one. One thing I learned is that when my temp is stabilized, the Maverick and my dome thermo will be almost dead even. The temp doesn't move after that. Keep trying.

    What problems are you having with the fire grate in the xl ? First time I've heard of problems with it. I've heard of problems with the grate in the large ashing over and snuffing out the fire. This is why people are replacing with the Hi Q , but never the XL.
    No problems at all, you just have to clean out your egg. I clean mine out about every 4-5 cooks. They run like a champ from the factory. You cant let them fill up with ash and expect them to work properly.
