BGE Hearts?

Ozzie_IsaacOzzie_Isaac Posts: 14,552
So I lurk on a few BGE Facebook groups.  The advice is super frustrating and mostly wrong, but I digress.

The new rage is finding hearts in the dimples. Is this a real thing, or just an artifact of the molding process?

@The_Buffalo any insight from the mecca?
If it is worth doing, it is worth overdoing.

Some Eggs, some Weber stuff, the occasional Traeger, and various other things that make flames and hold coals.

    I used to work for the company that makes the ceramics for Bge. Trust me when I say, they would not spend the money on something so stupid.

    Hearts can be found in the centers of Cheerios if you work that hard finding them…which I don’t.

    It's been lore for years.  It's stupid, but that is my opinion.  I have several eggs and have never spent a second looking for a heart on one.

    It is atrocious.  Who knew every single protein could be cooked for a specific time and temperature.  The really fancy cooks go to a specific done temp.  Apparently brisket is always done when a random part of it hits 203 deg F.  Always, and it will always be perfect.  I tried explaining one time, got completely shot down and told I didn't know anything.  Now I just lurk.

    It's true, but not by the company.  One of the mold carvers is actually head of the department of symbols in the Illuminati.  These guys need to keep their day jobs for appearances.  Anywho, you'll find more than hearts if you look close enough (hint - jfk, fake moon landing, hoax virus, white replacement theory)...you might find some interesting stuff.

    I mean, the dimples are like dots, so you can use a sharpie and connect any of the dots as you please.

    I just spent an hour with a glass of Crown Royal while I grilled a spatch-chicken carefully examining every divot on my LBGE.  I have ZERO hearts on my BGE.  

    I will say, they change shape based upon the angle they are observed.  So, even if I had one, chances are, I was looking at the wrong angle.

    The neighbors already think I am weird.

    I’ve been kicked off a few BGE Facebook groups, lol.  Some of them… don’t tolerate much in the way of dissent, never mind photos of roast beef that resemble lady parts (truthfully I think I got the boot over that one because the mods were pissed so many people had liked it).  

    Probably the funniest thing for me was when I’d discovered that Big Green Craig had blocked me on Facebook.  Oh, the humanity!

    @Langner91 - I hope it was a healthy glass of Crown Royal.

    They are a real mean bunch who are not interested in getting better at cooking.  All the A5 Beef posts are hilarious.  "Why would you eat that? It is all fat", "oohh, must be nice to come on here and brag",  "My 1/2" choice was better then that trash."

    I cancelled Fakebook and Twitter. A large collection of censoring losers there that hate America. I do have an Instagram that I use for cooking stuff.
