  • Egg Newbie, One more thought, for the sake of thoroughness is something I learned from the people at BGE when I had this problem. ( I am NOT a newbie) If your lump has ever been damp, it may never reach high temps. Apparently the lump is manufact…
  • Shelby, I'll be doing a honkin' brisket, ABT's , and wings. I wouldn't do the wings,as so many others bring them, but I don't think I could take the abuse if I didn't![p]Randy
  • ian, You could keep your gas grill too, and only use it when you wanted to achieve temps 5-10 min faster, HOWEVER you would never really use it once you experience the steaks on the egg. The difference is truly NIGHT & DAY. On my second attem…

  • Wow, thats small! Guess I linked the thumbnail. Try this.

  • Wirefire, I know how you feel now. I just started my first fire last night just to get a feel for the temperature adjustment. Tomorrow I'm cooking rib steaks for the egg's maiden voyage. This afternoon I mixed up some of Elder Ward's rub for pul…

  • RebelCause, Thanks for the warning. I do think we'll end up doing ribeyes for Christmas along with lobster tails. This is our traditional Christmas fare. I'll do the steaks in the egg at least. I will burp as implored![p]Today is the big day! …
  • Banker John, LOL to the "Now are we goin'ta fish er jes talk about it?" story. Give me a holler if you can talk your wife out of Wally-World. [p]Randy
  • Banker John, I live in the exact geographical center of Montana. Lewistown is a small community of approx. 7 thousand. I live 3 mi. out on a beautiful spring creek. Anyone flyfish? It sounds like you're in the heart of BGE country. Nobody I kno…
