  • Puj,[p] Heck, i was going to ask who Sue was & if you had her #. LOL[p]Earl
  • BBQfan1,[p] The picture in the paper is larger but still kind of hard to read, but it might get people asking about what kind of spices they use & your phone will ring even more.[p]Cheers Earl
  • Squeeze, I would fly into Regan National, it's a breeze to drive from there to Waldorf. Might take you 35 mins if you don't stop to load up on beer to take with you to the party. You also better like to eat crab & hush puppies.LOL[p]Earl
  • Marianne,[p] If your going to go to all that trouble with the shipping, you might want to think about going for the large egg. Just a though & nice gift for your husband he will love it that's for sure & by the way so will you.[p]Earl
  • Gretl,[p] I would go with peanut oil instead. It will give you a better finish in the end.[p]Learned this from Char-Woody some time ago.[p]Earl

  • Parrothead, If you are going to use a rub of any kind, i would not mop untill at least 5 hrs into the cook or you will take any rub right off of the meat at the start.[p]Earl

  • drbbq, Hi Ray:[p]I don't have any pics of the eggs but i do have one or two shots from the Sat night at the hotel after Eggtoberfest. Here is one that i think shows that the fun did not end until well into Sat night.

  • Glenn, When you get a replacement from the dealer, do not install it , ( that is if they don't need your old one back ) just keep it till the one you have now falls apart. This while be sometime from now i am sure. So like i said store it away or j…
  • Nardi, Good Morning:[p] The best advice i can give it to start real low with the wood at first & then move up to larger amounts. Chicken is like a sponge & will take in the smoke far more that you may like. So just use one to two chunks of …
  • Kelly Keefe,[p] That is one nice looking bird, how did you do it & what spices did you put on.[p]Earl

  • Earl, The ribs were great with cold beer but the left over potatoes were fantactic cooked up for breakfast in the morning. They had a very mild smoke flavor that went well with bacon & eggs.[p] Cheers Earl

  • PuppyBreath, I take two large eggs up moose hunting every October & tie them in the back of my pickup or load them in a trailer. I have not had a problem yet but i do take everything out of them in case they bounce about. The guy's are spoil…

  • WooDoggies,[p] Now that was real nice of all of you. You got one hugh smile from both Barb & I. Thank you for thinking of us & everyone else that could not make it. Those mini beers are my trademark & we don't even have them in Canada. D…
  • WooDoggies, We just got our cofirmation letter from New Holland so we will make it this time for sure. Looks like you folks had a great time again this year, sorry we missed it.[p]Earl
  • dublin, Can't help with the turkey but the prime roast should take about 3hrs to get to 140F which should be MED. Take some pics for us.
  • fis001, To best answer your question i will first say that i have 6 eggs in 5 sizes that include 2 large eggs that i use to compete with. Mind you the smallest is a mini mini only 6" tall and good for only one shrimp at a time. In telling you th…
  • Kim, Here are a few comments that were sent out by myself & Frozen Chosen some time back. GFW was knid enought to keep them on his web sit & i hope they help.[p] It should be getting higher than that. First check your thermometer for accura…

    in Sad news Comment by Earl March 2003
  • Fairalbion, I would have to disagree, I think that the meat on the top will cook slower as the food on the bottom will be acting as a heat sheild for the first while that is. The other thing you should watch for is that your lid thermometer does no…
  • Nature Boy,[p] Well count Barb & i in again. Room is book for Thurs May 1st so now all i need is N.B to invite us over for a snack when we land.LOL[p]Earl Lady told me rooms are booking fast so don't get left in another hotel where there is no …
  • Gary J,[p] Try this link.[p]Earl [ul][li][/ul]
  • BluesnBBQ, Sorry, can't take credit for them on the egg as there were steamed. I never thought about grilling them but i know it would be easy. use a little hot pepper oil, salt & pepper & brush with a butter after. You going to be at Wald…
