  • Here's the piloted end of the spectrum. These things are the hot-rods of the great plains
  • Hopefully this purchase lasts a
  • I needed lump and went to get a second opinion. Went to my local Ace Hardware this time for a bag of B&B. They were running a sale for $14.99 a bag. This go around I was much happier. Very little dust. I guess the first bag was the sweepings fro…

  • Liberty Gun Safe, really anything with a no BS lifetime warranty are things I gravitate to.
  • Anything made by Pelican. I have three of their coolers and a small case for gear
  • I'd feed that sausage to my wife.
  • Legume said: Was the mistake buying B&B or shopping at Walmart? Both, Small town living though. 6500 people just won't support any more than some local shopping and a walmart.

  • DoubleEgger said: Something happened to my cake  lol, I find that hilarious! That cake looks like a prolapsed anus. 
  • I like the new grid offerings from BGE. Interested to see how they stack up to CGS, as far as pricing goes. 
  • I believe this is the video you were looking for, @SurfingEgg321
  • Talked to my regional BGE rep. They told me to expect the new-comings from the convention in June. 
  • I know I'm going to regret setting the bar high early....Some how I've managed to do this very thing since the get go. I flew her out to Colorado for our proposal and spent a couple days in Hot Sulfur Springs with her. 
  • And thank you everyone for your comments thus far.  Much appreciated to be able to draw off of some of your past experiences! Thank you
  • logchief said: With what you've said for your itinerary after flying into Sacramento Yosemite would be a real stretch.  I'd spend more time in Napa and take a drive up the Northern California coast into the redwoods. If you're renting a car in…
  • I've been researching this topic as well. I've been seriously considering "Blink" home security cameras. Theyre developing a more robust home security package, that's soon to be released. 
  • BizGreenEgg said: For Oregon: You looking for more restaurant/vineyard recommendations or trying to see some of our outdoors/parks?  How many days down in Eugene?  You going straight there from PDX or is it more of a couple day trip with stops …
  • I do not like the burnt ends at jack stacks. Too soft in my opinion. I prefer a firmer texture to b.e. I think b.e. should, in fact be just that..."burnt ends".
  • Thanks all. It was a nice change of pace from the traditional bbq fare my egg usually sees. 
  • I think BGE is loosing some innovation to other. I've got a buddy that started with an egg then moved to a primo. Honestly, If I hadn't worked for a BGE dealer when I purchased my large, I would have considered a primo. 
  • I light my low & slow cooks with a cooking oil soaked paper towel or fire starting cube. I use a weed burner on my 325F + cooks to light the egg.  I find it much easier maintaining a lower temp by using a firestarter, rather than a torch. 
  • The fat content is important, but honestly the most important ingredient is salt. 1.75% of the meat/fat total weight. I just made pheasant sausage, I had a really fatty belly left from the last time I made bacon. Used that, I'd say it was 90% fat. I…
  • I use a suppressor. 
  • I've got a 650lb safe on top of a crawl space along an interior wall. Hasn't been an issue to date. 
  • I cure mine with the Ruhlman basic dry cure at a ratio of 3.5% to what ever the weight of your belly is. Usually it takes 6 days, flipping the ziplocks daily and feeling for firmness. I hot smoke at 180F-200F until 150F internal.   Meathead suggest…
  • SPRIGS said: Looks fantastic!  Recipe??  I have 6 goose breasts brining right now for some goose pastrami.  I don't have high hopes but we'll see how it turns out.  Plan to take them out of the brine tonight, soak in fresh water for an hour or …
  • I am a Traeger dealer, in fact the distributor in Hays that @littlerascal56 spoke about is our distributor. The most recent models are a step up from the previous generation. They are a little heavier built. I have to agree what @littlerascal56 said…
  • piney said: MattBTI said: I've been looking into renting a camper for a trip to tablerock this summer. I found a website where you rent other peoples campers. This lead me to start researching and crunching some numbers int…
  • The website I cited takes a commission of about 15% and in return provides insurance. There is also a damage deposit that the owner is free to set for the little things. I agree with you though that there are things and systems that need to be under…
  • @WeberWho, I will do so. I'm interested to see how how she will get, they're supposed to be serving steaks.
