New handles

Got new handles made for a couple of my eggs. I have to say the quality is even better than I was hoping for.

    Very nice! I love a custom handle on an egg.

    Looks like plugs of different woods were used in it ... neat effect!

    I have one in the mail as I speak from a different vendor and can't wait to see it ...

    I got them from sparky on the other forum. Really nice work. As squeeze stated he sunk different sized rods into them and finished them. Each one is unique which is really nice.

    Guess thats what you like. I wouldn't put one of Marty's handles on my eggs. The pictures really don't do these justice and there's something to be said about hand made. Also the xl handle on the large is pretty cool too.

    I usually do 50/50 tri tip and chuck roast but I did like a 40/30/30 chuck, tri tip, and short ribs this time. 4 pounds of meat, 2 eggs, 2 handfulls of brown sugar, medium vidalia/sweet onion chopped fairly fine, S&P to taste, and a little garlic powder. I have made them for years and people always like them.

    I pre carmelized them once and it made them greasy and they fell apart. Make sure to spray the grate with the brown sugar cause they will stick.
