    I got an XL egg
  • Re: More Charcuterie---Pancetta (pics)

    I'd be willing to give it a go but I know I could not let anyone else in my family see it until its cut or no one would eat it. I would also have to refer to it as pork. Although we taste with our mouth, my family thinks with the brain and won't eat what sounds weird or looks gross. I will tell you I am the opposite. You should see some of the food I've passed through the house that I know they would not have eaten if they truly knew what it was.  
  • Re: You only get ONE accessory.

    My accessory would be beer! Is this an accessory or a necessity?
  • Re: Length of double table need help?

    I have a 7 foot table with a large.  Me and a buddy stood on it when we lowered the egg in - it's strong enough to hold the weight of 3 XLs. 

    If I were building it, I'd just put in 4 legs.  The strength needs to be in the bottom shelf.  The load on the legs is in the long grain direction - wood is insanely strong in that direction.  For the cross grain stress - just double up  on some 2x4s on your 8' span.  Not much different structurally than an 8' span on a floor with joist construction.
    nolaegghead:  Thanks for the input.  I am not a wood craftsman but have dabbled a little.  Not anything like I have seen you do on these forums.  I am sonfused about your grain comments.  I understand grain of the wood.  Are you saying just double up my side to side supports and front to back supports and I should be good?
  • Black Friday Deals

    My local egg retailer has a 20% off coupon on any item in the store. The coupon does not show any limitations so i am headed over there to see what the deal is. Hopefully, I'll be walking out with my new egg. Michael
