  • Chet Lemon, I use mine alot. Holds lots of ribs or small items. I just take the rack out once in awhile during the cook and rotate the meat to a different rack so they all cook about the same. See-Yaa
  • Little Joe, I made a 19# rib roast on the egg, cooking it till it got to 100*, then took it to my mother in laws house to finish it up. It went up 10* in the 15 min trip to her house. It was wrapped in foil on the way over there. I had to finish it…
  • GenesGrill, I carry a small all the time. I have a class A and have room in my cargo bays, and I now have a wooden carrier that makes into a table when I get there. Before the table, I just used to duct tape the lid closed and wrap it in a moving p…
  • AZRP, I had a semi Eggfest last Feb in Lake Havasu with 15 people, and at that time the people from BGE suggested I try to put on an Eggfest in Lake Havasu. We've got about 15-20 eggers that I know in our little town of 50,000. I would be willing t…
  • Mike C., I have a mini and a small, along with some larges too, but thats another issue. If you are motorhome or suv camping, a small works great and isn't to heavy. Theres a lot of accessories for the small and its better for longer cooks. If not…
  • Lab Rat,[p]On the rim of the glass for a bloody mary or on the rim of the glass for a salted Tecate beer--See-Yaa
  • WessB, I've used pineapple or orange juice or a combination of both. We even uses some White Grape Juice before, but don't usually have that around very often. I like the beer idea too. See-Yaa
  • chuckls, What a great idea for rib tips. I've been doing my spareribs different ever since Nature Boy & Kenny put on the BGE class in Feb. I never used to remove the tips, but now I do. I'm also doing a vette. Mine is a 61. Its not being resto…
  • AZ Traveler, Ah!, that reminds me of the good times we had making pizzas together John. I've only made them once since then. See Yaa
  • ColoradoTonka, The BGE Headquarters in Atlanta has a really cool 3 tier set up that works great. I have one and am very happy with it. It requires a 2" fire ring, but thats no problem, they have them too. See-Yaa
  • SHADOWHOUSE, Get off the caps key and keep that motorcycle upright from now on. Good news for you, I have another fender for the bike. I can smell the crab legs from here[p]See-Yaa
  • Diceman, I take my small in the motorhome all the time, in fact, it lives in there all the time. I have another small for my outdoor kitchen. If it to heavy for you to move, take the parts out of it, put them in a trash bag and then its easier to m…
  • Hatch, You know it man--A blast was had by all and wait till you meet the other 50 Goatheads See-Yaa
  • Nature Boy, Hey dude, thats a cool picture. When did you find time to take it and how could you hold the camera steady at that time of night, after having all the spirits we had during the day. You don't know how much I appreciate the special gift …
  • Rick's Tropical Delight, Actually since we are in the custom paint & bodyshop business, we painted the thing. Its got a color changing green on it along with other colors. BUT, it does carry a small & a mini BGE in the side compartments whe…
  • RRP, Hey Ron heres some names. Back row from left to right--Glen Wilson-Ron Barckley-Ron Wilson-Dave St George (1st time egg user)-Ernie Hudson-Doug Jaeger (soon to be owner)-Mike Love ( Lovehandles)-Tim Love ( doesn't have lovehandles)-Ron Rathbun…
  • AZ Traveler, That looks like pizzas I've seen before. We threw another bunch on Sunday after the class to use up the left over ingredients. See-Yaa
  • Nature Boy, If I'd have known you were going to put ME on the forum, I woulda let my hair down so the guys can see just how weird I really am. Really Chris & Kenny, you guys were really great and the guys out here that didn't get to go are alre…
  • Bubba_T, Hey Man, don't let something like that keep you away. I went from AZ to Virginia couple years ago and Chris & Kenny came from Virginia to AZ. Those airplanes just keep flying. See-Yaa
  • Haggis, If we did that , would that make Nature Boy and Kenny screen stars? Maybe not a bad idea, but I don't know who we'd get to hold the camera all day for 2 days, and don't know if you'd really want to see what we'll probably look like at the e…
  • AZRP, Don't forget we live over here in a little town. Heck, I didn't even have to get a permit for my spray booth when I put it in, just give the city $20.00 See Yaa and wish you were coming to the class. Mike
  • Richard, My wife took some pics while all this was going on. I think she's going to try to post them later, but we will post some pics of the cooking class with Nature Boy this weekend for sure. See-Yaa
  • Buster Dog BBQ,--We usually try to do the food of the area the games being played in, so , We're making cuban marinated pork roast, Jamican jerk pork butts, Jamaican chicken and Jamaican Ribs. Also going to make regular BBQ ribs, butts and chicken f…
  • Bobby-Q, Man, thats great. I sure enjoy using all my eggs and so do my friends. Our motorcycle group won a biker chili cookoff yesterday, and there was a lot of talk from the guys about finding some kind of BBQ competition to enter. Anyone know of …
  • Babyray, I just finished two overnighters this morning. I did them fat cap down, that way the slightly burned part is the fat cap. Both were nice and juicy. I guess everyone does them different--See-Yaa
  • Scotty J, I've made them both ways, but prefer to use the Chile Grille. Just cut the tops off clean them out , then I stuff them with cream cheese, garlic, pulled pork or those little sausage weenie thingies, water chestnuts, onions or whatever you…
  • luis, I've had one of my larges 8 years and just seem to keep adding every couple of years to the family. Eggs are the greatest cooking machines I've ever seen. I just ordered a mini, just so I can say I have one--See-Yaa
  • luis, Heck, I say get them both. I just ordered a mini from the BGE headquarters. I already have 2 smalls and 2 Larges, just wanted a mini for kind of a tabletop decoration. Small is the best bet for you though, and its light enough to take with yo…
  • QriousTom, Nice Job. I did the same thing with the narrower cart fot fit my small. Mine even came with a wooden top, I just had to cut the hole for the egg. Nice and easy table.See Yaa
  • AZ Traveler, Hi AZ Traveler--I was wondering what part of AZ you are from. I'm from Lake Havasu. If you could e-mail me, I'd like to tell you about a BGE class we're having here next month--Thanks Mike
