    The eight foot beacon has been lit commemorating the beginning of summer. 

    Let the grilling games begin....

    Egging with each of you today my friends - a 5am start for me.  
  • Re: pizza toppings.

    My favorite - rosemary infused bacon, sea salt, and pepper. cook for 4 minutes then add 3 cracked eggs with chives and finish cooking. Spread runny yolk just before serving.
  • Re: Does your partner/significant other use the Egg?

    My wife has cooked a total of 2 meals in 10 years - no joke :)  I am perfectly fine with that and enjoy the daily responsibility as a stress reliever to zone out.  

    The only argument is..... 

    Me: "Honey, before I leave for three hours come look at the egg again... do you see the temp is on (insert whatever)? It needs to stay within ten degrees of that  - if not - open or close the daisy wheel as needed"

    Wife: What's a daisy wheel? I don't like touching this thing"

    Me: Honey, this thingy on top allowing more air in/out - we have talked about this for 10 years now.

    Me: (calling after an hour away) How's the temp?

    Wife: oh.. let me check. too high / low... what do I do again.....?

    Yes... the same conversation over ten years. 

    And wouldn't change a thing about her....
  • Re: Must be an inside joke...

    @ptmurphy, it seems you have received some helpful and not so helpful thoughts. Let me try to assist as well. I have served in the US Army for over 12 years. I can say there is technology being used by the military that is rarely seen in the civilian sector. Every once in a while, however, an amazing product is released for civilian use. The Mangrates is one of those products. Although once called the M571G Tactical HOORAH, they have declassified it for public use. I am glad to see this product on the market today but I will warn you now, it will make you wanna go slap yo daddy when those burgers come off the BGE!!! I hope this helps.
  • Re: mangrates

    If you're like me, you don't go with the first product you see or hear about. You do your research. Due diligence. Investigation. When my wife and I decided a few years ago that we would like to start pricing aftermarket BGE grill grates, we put together a master plan.

    This plan involved plenty of online research, talking with friends, family, neighbors, our financial advisor, our accountant, our attorney, our ecclesiastical leader, we also read thousands of online reviews. We even went to a couples retreat that involved hands-on use of searing grates in the real-world setting.

    After 2 solid years of research, we finally decided on Mangrates.

    My wife and I attended the required training seminar organized by @boomer. The experience was well worth the $15,000 fee because the classes prepare you for the certification test given at the end of the retreat. My wife and I are now licensed to practice “Mangrateing” in 5 states and select regions of Canada and Mexico. We even have a permit to travel with Mangrates and (of course) we each have a concealed Mangrate permit. (Although very difficult and awkward to conceal).
