  • So.. the "Other" SIL just announced she's bringing a buffalo chicken, the BIL and I decided I'm going back to making straight up ABT's since his plan was to make a bunch of various meat skewers!  #thisfamily
  • Carolina Q said: How about Mainegg's ABT Dip? Never made it, but by all accounts, it delicious. And far easier than regular ABTs. Hey! I like this sound of this!  Thanks for the share!

  • Thanks everyone, and yeah I get the differences and all, but it's just that we were having such drastic performance issues due to the interference from my neighbor's system.  Google Fiber probably spent a couple of hours with me through online suppo…
  • Will there be an equivalent Egg Genius to the 500. do you know?
  • My go-to fill in's are Hard Boiled Eggs, Avocado- halved and w/ Sriracha.  I just learned that cream cheese is a good fat - so I need to add that to more dishes!  Yum!  AND BACON!!!

  • stlcharcoal said: They have arrived! Hey @stlcharcoal I happened to see a boxed FB 400/Egg Genius in my local BGE dealer's shelf.  Any advise, observations or feedback on this new approach vs the 300's ?
  • Gotchya... Thanks!
  • Just had the deck restained this summer.  Not pictured - my Keter Unity XL Indoor Outdoor Entertainment BBQ Storage Table... to the left of my LBGE.
  • @Skrullb Are you doing L&S around 225F in your Camp Chef smoke vault gasser? Assuming that takes 5-6 hrs for spares...
  • gamason said: Biggest thing is the cherry  you used. Fruit woods and pecan are just not as heavy as say oak and mesquite. Cherry is great for poultry which takes smoke very easily, just not as much on pork. I just had  a 'duh' moment.  …
  • SaintJohnsEgger said: I though I read somewhere on here that the smoke doesn't set or take as well with temps up over 300. But I read so much on here that it all gets jumbled up after a while. I think you're close to the answer - I thi…
  • Since SWMBO doesn't eat anything with a bone, I do ribs or wings or drumsticks... something like that.  Also, she doesn't do medium rare - so a nice 129F sous vide ribeye is always an option for me dining alone. Also, who doesn't love some brats an…
  • Interesting insight @pgprescott ... do you have a controller you use?  I've been contemplating getting a FlameBoss (if I can figure out the latest version...) and wondering if that might also help keep the temp up AND the smoke w/ the choked off dam…

  • Maybe not the fanciest thing... but man, did this really surprise me how great it tasted.  Local Italian sausages, fresh sweet peppers and onions tossed in EVOO and Italian spices... 19/10. FAN-FRIGGIN'-TASTIC !
  • That's all I need !  Great cook, brother!
  • THAT'S FANTASTIC!  Great idea! So @Mattman3969, what temp do you were at for the frying ?  Asking for a friend...
  • I love CGS and have a few things from them. (Even visited the store!) But if you are looking for a cheaper alternative, get four 4"-5" bolts, some washers and nuts, and a smaller diameter Weber grate, and create your own removable second tier.  Wor…
  • I'm coming to the end of my first bag of Rockwood, and today I used a little RO to do a quick 1.5 hr smoke on some eggplants for SWMBO's Baba Ganoush.  I thought there was a lot of hype around Rockwood... but nope, it's real.  The RO chugged out whi…
  • zahulio said: Looks delicious. @vb4677  What kind of sauce did you use?  Whatever we had in the fridge... honestly, it was just a cheap, sweet heat BBQ sauce. I think it had some chipotle in there. Whatever the wife had gotten on sale...…
  • Scantron said: How do those compare to brisket burnt ends? I've never tried to do chuckie burnt ends. Well, living in the hometown of burnt ends, they aren't quite the same, but they were still mighty good, and fulfilled that need for so…
  • Niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice............
  • Very pleased with the two recommendations from KC ! My BIL is an Exec. Chef at a country club in Phoenix.  The FIRST thing he did when we entered LC's, was take a picture.  He was SO enamored at first sight, that it was the only pic he took all day …
  • Why do those photos make me feel like I'm doing something naughty?
  • @RRP  Kicks G-ass-ket !  Just sayin'....
