  • all these posts have given me some inspiration and I have rocked a beard for almost 10 years now.  I understand a beginner should use the futur.  what else!?!?!?!
  • it seems as if you have the details down.  Every brisket and egg is different, i find my egg settles in right at 240-250 for low and slow cooks.  some folks wrap their briskets once they reach 180 IT or so.  I personally do not but its all preferenc…
  • first off congrats on finding that score.  second I would have probably taken the small GE off your hands.  Not very often they become available up here in MN.  
  • Last cook tonight at our first house where we had our first child, got our egg, etc etc.  we moved the egg out of the table and down from the deck into nest on the lower patio.   Will be loading up later this week to make the move.    Picture fail-…

  • impressive cook, can we assume it tasted as good as it looks?
  • Very impressive post, good work. 
  • Started the weekend with garlic and herb chops and a twice baked spud on the egg.  Side salad has the first cut of lettuce from the garden.  Beer is a local brewery’s summer offering.  
  • I cold smoke cheddar the with A-mazn smoker, let it mild out for 2 week in the fridge.  I like to use that on burgers.  I have also done smoked Gouda and I am also a fan of mozzarella.  
  • normally I skip the longer posts as they get a bit wordy, I read every word of this.  Incredible story and like many others incredibly jealous of the adventure and the cook.  
  • Brooks was solid all day long. Impressive winning two in a row.  Secondary story is DJ blowing a lead and really not being much of a factor.

  • Sam thing happened here in Minneapolis.  I bought my LBGE at a store called the kitchen window, when you first walked in the door it was all green eggs, every size unit, accessories, charcoal etc.  they switched to KJ within the last year.  I asked …
  • Red hot and blue is a decent bbq place.  Also Caddies in Bethesda has some of the wings I’ve ever had.  
  • agreed, a lot of young guns but only people who really watch golf know of the young guys for the most part.  Tiger brought in the casual fan and made fans of people who didn't like the game at all.  And he more or less created an entire business lin…

  • i went with Rose, fowler and Day in my pick league.  2 of 3 are in good position.   I do have to say that fox's graphics seem to be pretty good.  Most everyone likes the shot tracking and I personally like the distance to the flag or bunker/landing…

  • Conditions are tough with the wind and it’s suppose to get worse this afternoon.  Pretty humbling when a pro is 10 over halfway through round one.   Thinking pizzas or a brisket this weekend.  Or both.

  • I’ve got a pair of ariat boots going on 10 years now, had them re-heeled twice but with a little yearly maintenance the leather looks brand new.  Wear them every day.  
  • Most excellent.  May I ask what your dough recipe was?
  • What recipe did you use for the dough?
  • I go plate setter legs down, 2 bricks that raise a pizza stone.  Temp between 550 and 600.  I make the pizzas on parchment paper, put on the stone for 2 minutes, then remove the parchment paper and let the pizza go for another 8-10 minutes.  I do fi…

  • Made a sausage/onion pizza followed by a pepperoni.  Dialed the temp back now and roasting some corn for a corn salsa with fish tacos tomorrow.  
  • Anyone have any advice on getting my leaf blower to run at full throttle?  I have pulled the carb out and cleaned it, put a new air filter in it, put a new spark plug in, put a new fuel filter in. And I’m running clean fuel with a splash of sea foam…
