Post pics of your "Sweaty Egg"

I have always thought of an oozing sweaty egg as a badge of honor.  Post a pic of your sweating egg.

    Wow impressive!

    Mostly low n slows on that or do you mix it up regularly with steak/pizza hot cooks too?

    a clean burn to cleanse?

  • I don't have any pics, but if i did, they aren't worthy of being in the same thread as yours…. Not exactly sure how many butts you had to smoke to do that

    SWMBO was not interested!! =)
    Louisville;  L & S BGEs, PBC, Lang 36; Burnin' wood in the neighbourhood. # 38 for the win.  Life is too short for light/lite beer.  
  • @hans61 - I mix it up often with L&S and high temp steaks and pizza.  Did steaks on Friday night and that is what I found this afternoon when I went back out to do some chicken.  

    @lousubcap - glad she wasn't interested.... We aren't either.  
  • I went out to mine the other day after a few low and slows in a row and mine finally started getting the ol meat sweats. I probably use mine twice as much for hot cooks and I figured that had just as much to do with it. (You can get a pic tomorrow, it's cold and I'm not going outside...got some Breaking Bad to catch up on)

    Never understood why a few eggs bleed like that as it is not commonplace - at least in the years I've been around. Your egg surface, band and general appearance let alone your few posts here makes me think your egg is realively new and not some old workhorse having seen years of heavy greasy cooks. OTOH the condition of the wooden handle and wings tells me your egg sits out in the weather probably exposed to direct sunlight as well. There must be an explanation.

    You may be on to something. I'd say that egg is at least 4-7 years old. 

    Ive had 3 eggs at 4 different houses. The only time my large sweated was at the house it sat out in the elements. But it was just little brown beads and a few drip lines.

  • @MrCookingNurse - Bingo.  It is 7 years old and it lives a happy life outside.

    @RRP - Post count isn't everything as some of us are lurkers in the deep.  My egg might be not an "old workhorse" in your perspective of time.  However, it is in mine. =)

    No offense meant, man! I'm just saying next to the picture that @fishlessman is known for posting here yours is the second bloodly most I recall seeing. Whether new or old there has to be something that made yours and his do this whereas it is not commonplace. Peace!

    It is not uncommon

    damp/rainy conditions and an egg being fired at high temps for an extended period (for the first time in a while)

    that's all it is

    entrained water, raised to boiling temps, and expanding 1700 times  (steam), forces out dirt, pollen, grease etc.  it comes out thru the crazing and there you go

    My minimax did it tonight. Rarely used. Sat out in freezing rain and sleet. Fired to 600 tonight started to sweat. 

    My older large has has never done it really.

  • @Coul - that is a crappy CI from harbour freight that is cracked. It is now used to collect rocks from my charcoal.

    Hairless, are you sure a flock of seagulls or buzzards don't roost on your egg at night?

    its just the self cleaning feature of the higher end eggs. imagine what the insides of eggs without this feature looks like =)  i would not want to cook in one of those

    Mine does it when left in the rain for a few days and then I cook at a high heat. I imagine it's rainwater that soaks in that then gets expelled by the heat, rather than internal moisture leaking out.
