  • I just bought the last bag of B&B at my ace. It’s ok but it has a really strong chemical smell when you first light it.  It takes a while for the smell to disappear.

  • Cover are great if u keep up with putting them on after each use.  I did it religiously for about a month than I became lazy now the cover never goes on.  
  • I have one it works ok.  If u have the extra cash get 1 but it’s not necessary and it doesn’t cook better than the DFMT.   
  • Congrats on the Komodo Kamado.  I wish I could afford 1.  Is they’re any difference you’ve noticed cooking on it?
  • Its normally on their website but every so often it’s not there. I’m not sure if it’s out of stock or website issue.  
  • I received a confirmation email after I completed my online order.  I’m just waiting on my email to confirmed it shipped and on it’s way to me.  I’ve been trolling their website a lot because the shipping to my area is super cheap.  If I see that de…
  • I totally agree Rockwood and various other brands of charcoal are very neutral in flavor/smoke profile. But the key is to light the charcoal let it hit your desired temperature then let it go for a while then start to smell the smoke coming out the …
  • I thought I would be working late tonight but lucky I got done early. I tried to defrost some steaks but it’s still partially frozen. I’m gonna cook them anyway. Wish me luck.   
  • Anyway way to get it to Hawaii cheap?

  • I don’t buy Royal oak no more not because it’s sucks, but every Home Depot in my area doesn’t take care of the charcoal. Every bag I get its mostly dust.  I pay 37$ for a bag of BGE from my dealer.  My dealer takes care of his charcoal.  
  • U don't need a back yard to have fun egging. My townhouse only had small yard and patio. I to wanted a table at first but there's was very little room on my patio so I stuck with my nest.  Welcome to the forum start and keep on cookin.    
  • Hope all goes well with your move. When u say moving to Hawaii do u mean Oahu?  If so there's only 2 egg dealers here. Both are ok but not as knowledge as the mainland egg dealers.

  • Pork ribs baby back or St Louis cut. Can't seem to be consistent. I can't get the time right so they come out tuff.   I get good pull back from the bones but the meater racks come out tuff.   
  • Awesome video very helpful tips.  When are you coming to Hawaii.   
  • I have a friend that works as meat cutter for Costco. According to him Costco will no longer sell choice briskets only prime briskets.  I can't really tell a difference in taste but the primes cook alot faster. 
  • Is wrong of me to wish and hope they buy an egg and don't like it. Then I could be the lucy recipient of there purchase. Hahaha. 
  • Smoked marlin and beef ribs were pretty good. I decide to re-fuel and keep my egg running but when I checked there was a lot of charcoal left in my basket. So I just kept it going.  The brisket finished at 5 p.m. The next day.  It was for a party wi…
  • I got my flame boss controlling the flame. So I'll probably let her run till tomorrow 
  • It's 1630 now hopefully the ribs will be done by 1900. They've been on since 1300. My brisket has to be done by 1800 tomorrow. So I'm thinking about putting the brisket on at about 0500 Saturday morning. I was planning on snuffing the fire right aft…
  • @lousubcap thanks.  I'm still debating if I should snuff the fire or just add fuel and let her keep running.  
  • I forgot I had pizza dough defrosted.  Didn't want to waste it so I made pizza first.  Then I decided to bake the mahi mahi in the egg.  I'm experimenting tonight I crusted some of the fish with chips and just seasoned some with house divided.

  • @Sea2Ski I'm gonna do both egg and fry.  My friends had sum last night raw which they said was really good.

  • We got them trolling. Found sum rubbish and there they were. 
    in Fresh fish Comment by g37 April 2017
  • I'm still debating on what to season them with or how to grill them.

  • Are your wires for guru sandwich between your dome and base.  If so the wire is causing a gap even if u can't see it. That's where your smoke leak is coming from.

  • @SoCalTim I got my new hinge and band assembly from big green egg. Most dealers won't have them yet.  Unless your dealer sells a lot of eggs.  Try contacting big green egg directly. 
  • Willieb9000 hey southern links BBQ just posted he got the new hinge assembly for his large.  You may want to reach out to him for measurement specs his egg is in a table.   
  • I agree. Let me know if u need any more pics.
