  • Gfw, Thanks. I miss checking in with all of you. Things just get a bit crazy sometimes! Still saving up for that new egg....ww
  • Nature Boy, Sounds like an excellent way to win that client over! Good luck and may the sounds of happy lips engulf your dining room! r1[p]
  • Nature Boy, Wow, that's a bunch of snow. You should come south the next time you get the winter camping urge. We'll freeze you to death, but cut you significant slack on the snowdrifts![p]My dome temp was up to 285* when I finally pulled the ribs.…
  • Nature Boy, Yep, I did let it creep eventually, but not until after about 4 hours. I cooked the ribs a total of 5.5 hours and sauced them the last 30 min. or so. Juicy and powerful good! No bones about it! Good luck on those babes and have a gre…
  • sprinter, Ah the supreme dilemma! I decided on 3 racks of ribs for supper tonight. Started them about 1pm, nice and slow:175*. Cooking on a raised rack and will leave em alone until time to slap on my kids favorite Q sauce. You may remember, aro…
  • Bob, I think you are right on the Heinz. The breasts were great! Next time, I go Heinz free and different recipe! I'll try the ChefR suggestion.....R1[p]
  • Gfw, Man, this stuff looks great! I'll put this little jewel on my "next," list for sure. R1

  • Rob H, See how fast this stuff happens? I neglected to tell you about GFW's website, mainly because I am just beginning to explore that one myself! You will find a ton of people who do some remarkable things with these sites. I think I enjoy pos…
  • King-O-Coals, The last time I got that way my family put me on BGE probation! Watch out King! r1
  • Well, the meatloaf was awesome and no I don't have the ingredients ready to post just yet. The bread, at least the portion that I did not toast, was delicious! Can't be cookin' the bread directly on the firebricks AGAIN. Got to raise it up and do…
  • Dr. Chicken, That's what I'm afraid of! See it's a plan....they eat it and I cook em more. r1
  • EGGing in the Rain (PART 2), I told you it would work! Glad your cook went well. r1
  • Bama Fire, You CAN DO THIS! I cook in the snow, rain, sleet, high winds all the time. My advice, put on the long handles, fire up that EGG with a full load of lump and go for it. As usual, don't open that puppy up unless life or limb is at risk.…
  • Blu, I cooked a LB not very long ago following TimM's website advice. It worked like a champ and the meat was juicy, tender, and well done. I can't abide red meat! The other posts indicate how this is done, but you may want to check out Tim's sit…
  • Tim M, I could not agree more..... The picture of the SnowEgg was great! r1
  • KennyG, Well, I don't have any neighbors unless you count the bears or deer in that category so I suppose that does not matter a whole bunch! I bet your neighbors STILL ask you what's cookin though don't they... I say fire up the fan and let the …
  • KennyG, You have inspired me! It's 25 mph sustained winds, sleet, outside air temps. of 32* and falling and I'm off today! I think I'm goin to town and find me something to cook..... Maybe this will rate as a new spectator sport: Extreme Egging …
  • Tim M, Loved the graphics! Well, it's all over but the cleaning now. Ribs were great and the steaks were great; everyone is happy, fat, and full. Man life is good! Hope your turkey turns out good. I really like the new digital thermometer. Wh…
  • Tim M, I love your graphics! Well, it's almost time for the fat lady to sing. Those ribs are wearing a special solution of sauce now and should come off in about 10 minutes. After that, I'm runnin up the temp. to cook a couple of steaks. [p]Hop…
  • Gfw, Man it looks like the plates the last two times I cooked these puppies for my clan! Scary when they get like that! r1
  • Ranger1, You gotta learn to spell...RECIPE. R1
  • Gfw, It's on tonight! If I had not seen your post, I would have never given it a thought! Thanks and I'll keep you posted....r1
  • sprinter, Sounds like a classic case of "hooked on EGGing," to me! I suffer along with you; guess what though, we are not alone. Just read the posts...ya have to love it. I don't know if you read my last post, but my family has placed me on "BGE…
  • Spin, Thanks for the note. This is fun! Have a great weekend; I'm off to play ranger. r1
  • Char-Woody, My daughter thinks this "pork stand," is a great idea, but since I live on a park, the State of Ga. would fire me and I'd have to do the EGG thang for a livin. Now there's a thought! R1
  • Tim M, Wooops. I cooked the spuds for 2.5 hours THEN ran the temp up to 600* for searing LB. I was so excited the thing worked out right, I probably was not clear! [p]As far as tonight goes: I have been placed on probation for a bit. Seems my f…
  • Gfw, Oh yes. It worked. See my most recent post. Thanks, r1
  • Char-Woody, Call me a rebel but I'm steppin out on a limb. We have found this "steak seasoning," called "Dale's," and we have been using it with various things. I marinated the LB in this stuff for about 3 hours now. Hope I have not created a mo…
  • Gfw, Thanks for the help. I'll give it a shot now! r1
  • Char-Woody, Whimpering is a good thing and I can whimper with the best of em! Now if I can just find that blind fold..... Medium rare..does that mean the vet uses one extra bandage? Got to run fire up old smokey. I'll keep you guys posted. No …
