  • Daisy Wheel Question

    I was reading a few discussions earlier and there was a comment about what a PITA it is when you open the egg and the daisy wheel changes position and you have to reset it.  Someone commented to "line the bolts up".  I looked at my daisy wheel this weekend while doing a Spatchcock chicken and I couldn't figure out what that meant.

    Is there any way to keep the daisy wheel position when opening and closing your egg, other than very very carefully removing it (using high temp gloves) or using tape?!
  • Re: Carrots

    I've not grilled them but I've done them in the oven and they come out quite well.  I've halved them and tossed in olive oil / salt / pepper and then roasted at 400 / 425 until tender and they are awesome (I usually do parsnips at the same time).

    I bet this would be GREAT on the egg.
  • Re: Smokes Crabs

    With regards to the slow kill, with lobster's I've had the fishmonger kill them for me as where I get them is about 7 min from my house.  He always tells me, straight home and cook them and they work out just fine (need to try them on the egg!).

    I wonder if there is something similar for the crab that you could do to do a quick kill then smoke...
  • Re: OT: What is your grocery/household budget a month?

    I looked at our budget and without eating out, we average $450 for just 2 of us.  Granted, I buy a lot of fish, fruit and vegetables and I try to avoid most processed foods.  That was the average for last year and looking at this year it has increased by about $60 / mo for the same exact purchases.  Sad really that fresh fruit, veg and meat costs so much.  I'm "old" enough to remember when I could feed 2 of us for about $50 to $75 a week...

    I did a ribeye (about 1.25 inches) reverse sear and it was great.  Very tender.
