    Curious about the size of the cast iron griddle and is that a large egg? Thanks

    Michael,
    maybe you already knew this, but I tried to order some bags today and got a re-direct message so I wrote to Jen who I had conversed with in the past. Here was her reply and explanation:

    Yes that correct..   Didn't sell out as the plan.  But our Wisconsin partners. Who are also well versed in vacuum sealing are originally from pa.  Thankfully that is the blessing of website and brick and mortar businesses.  It doesn't matter where you live , the product is the same and it ships out just the same. 
    Unfortunately our family was involved in a very serious accident last September, which put us all in the hospital for many months, including our children.  .  And put our online business at stand still and left us with a very hard but realistic decision.   We wanted to make sure our thousands of customers were covered during the busy hunting season and our partners took on the responsibility. And kept things running. Now taking it on completely. 

     Our physical therapy is still ongoing almost a year later, and we have consulted them from afar and we have worked together to keep things going.  So we are sorry if moving our business has upset you, but knowing you did not buy them from a brick and mortar , but clearly online, not too much has changed.  They still ship the same, just not from our families storage building.  We are a family business and God thankfully spared us to help others .  And we hope you can understand that. It was a tough decision, but the choice clearly was a necessity to support our many customers.  I thank you for your patronage and hope you will support our Wisconsin family and our great bags.

    RRP here...I see you are from Columbia. My wife and I grew up in nearby Centralia. Anyway - earlier today I posted a recommendation that people try Sticky Pig BBQ sauces. Have you?

    Spaghetti question: 
    yours looks GREAT! Is that really a Southern style recipe? It has far more ingredients than those commonly found up North in restaurants.

    OTOH the thing that really bugs me up here is "spaghetti suppers" are very common fund raiser events. I mean there is one somewhere every weekend and sometimes two being held...BUT they consist of only spaghetti and some **** thin sauce! No meat, no lumps just slurping stuff! Then the other common fund raiser up here are weekend pancake breakfasts...no eggs, no meat just pancakes! Trust me I have not been to a spaghetti supper nor pancake breakfast more than once in 50 years! 

    Are those "suppers and breakfasts" common down South?

      Thanks for the compliment. I built the table myself. Just got an idea of what I wanted, came up with a drawing and started cutting wood.

    Thanks for letting me know about the egg mates.  My wife informed/reminded me my birthday is coming up in a few weeks.  Not sure if she was hinting at what I might be getting since I brought this up.  I will let you know, but in the mean time if you sell them, go for it.

  • I just smoked a small roast in the egg and cooked it to a perfect medium rare but it is still tough.  I cooked in on the grill at 225 for the first half then in foil with beef broth for the rest of the time.  I don't want to over cook it and make it a dried out tough piece of meat.  Any suggestions?

    Ryan,
    I'm not sure why Scottie started that whole thing about my money, But here's something I posted last night why you never see me mentioning someone else's net worth or the lack thereof:

    Scottie - When I went into banking in 1967 it was drilled into everybody's head that if you EVER even HINTED about a customer's net worth based on account balances you were immediately FIRED!!! NO QUESTIONS asked - just FIRED! Try to sue and that would even make it worst on any future you might try to have in banking! Get that idea drummed in the head and seeing it confirmed by the firing of low level clerks to tellers to officers to trust officers to even one Executive VP destined to take over the presidency the following year then you learned to keep YOUR *UCKING MOUTH SHUT!!!
     
    Guess you might say I don't take these comments too lightly as this is too engrained in my moral fabric.

  • I have had my Egg for a little over a year now and I am still amazed at how great food tastes. I recently did pulled pork for my daughters wedding shower. This was the best I have ever done. People could not believe I did the smoking and wanted to know where I bought it. I smoked 16.65 lbs of Boston Butt (2 roasts from Sam's Club) at 250F until the internal temp reached 165F, wrapped them in foil and added apple juice and water, them back on the Egg until they reached 205F. Took 13 hrs and they were awesome. Everyone took some home with them so I know it had to be good.

    Hello,

    I see you didn’t care for my tongue in cheek post comparing a Looflighter to my use of wood grain EVERCLEAR for lighting my fire. I don’t understand why it was worthy of a slam against my reputation where you flagged it as being Off Topic. OTOH if it was flagged in error then I’d really appreciate it if you would remove the flag. You do so by merely clicking on my post and then clicking on the Off Topic. Thank you!
