  • @nystad, I'll send you a PM with Word document and pics attached that tell you everything I think I know about brisket...  It may be too much, but it should answer your questions.

    Hello Larry.  I love your sausage threads.  Going to make the Thai sausage for Christmas.  A few questions.  How long does the Thai Curry Paste last in the frig?  Does it freeze well?  Part 2 was with duck.  Do you usually use only pork?  Which one is Better?  Thanks again.

      Thanks @buffalomoose I make enough of the curry for what I am going to use, but it should last for a few weeks and would freeze well...........Duck is pretty rich ,, I like it but I'd go all pork if I were you..........You can sub fresh green Thai Chili's for the dried Red, this last batch was Hot, but not overpowering

    Thanks for your posts/information.  Very helpful.  Can I get your basic overview for cooking medium sized briskets.  Also, do you use Choice or try and find USDA prime?
    Do you also put water in the foil catcher or just use to grab the fat?  Thanks!

    Hey.  Thanks for the post.  I just bought my XL egg and sold my Traeger which I hated for various reasons (for another time).  Anyway, curious if your Brisket was true Prime grade or Choice?  I live in Minneapolis area and have a real tough time finding true USDA prime brisket even among various meat shops.  I have not had success thus far cooking brisket, but I am excited to try following your recipe soon.  Just did not know if I truly need to seek out prime grade (apparently has a bit more internal fat content and possibly bit more tender) or just go with a good quality Choice.  Thanks!

  • Just acquired a new Winnebago View 24G RV and am looking for ideas on how to transport a smaller EGG externally, just wondering what's available or what solutions the community may have come up with.

    Not sure what part of Florida you are in, but Wassi's Meat Market puts on a HUGE EggFest in April and they have the BEST prices on the MM.  In the past they have been $399.00.

    The tip on the temp was good though. I'm hearing 125 from a lot of people--I'd like to get medium on the sides and medium rare towards the center. Not a fan of rare beef. I gotta think about the rub. I have a lot of different rubs I use for ribs, brisket, pork, etc. My favorites are coopers, but rub, good ****. (gotta love the creativity in the grilling scene). But Idk if that'd be a good plan for the formal Christmas party.

    Hey Ron, been searching for tenderloins and have run into your post twice now. https://eggheadforum.com/discussion/1181599/beef-tenderloin-roast. This looks great--do you remember about what temp you cooked this at, and flipping? Preparing mentally for my tenderloins Saturday.

    Never heard of this...did you buy i5 from BGE?  Is is a knockoff brand?  It should be covered by BGE.  I had an issue with the bottom half of the Egg, told them; they set me a brand new bottom half of the Egg.  Pretty sweet I must say!  Cheers and good luck
