  • randomegger, All of these guys are approaching it the wrong way. Approach both of them from the aspect of charcoal savings. The small uses less charcoal, and you can cook more on the XL with the same amount of charcoal. It is all about saving mo…
  • Hugh Jass, I am from Tennessee and I resent that remark. Everyone knows that we dont wear hats to church on Sunday's, hats scare the snakes. Pigtail
  • Dr. Ryan, I can not vouch for this as I heard someone else say it. The majority of the smoke flavor is done during the first 2 hours of the cook, after that time the meat does not absorb much smoke. I do a lot of butts and I really throw the wood…
  • Shelby, I have cooked tenderloins anyway that u can think of. Thet all turn out the same great!! I prefer cooking mine at about 325-350 but i cook mine indirect. It normally takes about an hour but i am normally cooking 8-10 of them. Tenderloin…
  • Cornbread Willy, Had some last night from the foodsaver bag. I do the full seal on mine. I reheat mine by placing the bag in boiling water for a few minutes. Comes out great. As for how much in one bag is up to how many people in your family. …
  • SSDawg, I believe he said that he is sending it into a large to smoke cheese with. Pigtail
  • SSDawg, I was just on the visitor profiles and saw it. It is Chuck's picture on his visitor profile. Pretty cool set up. Pigtail

  • mark james tuttle, Yes indirect is using the platesetter. I did not look at the weight but I guessed that it weighed about 9 or 10 pounds. It sure is good. Going to have some tonight. No Monday Night football. What will I do.
  • Mark, I did one yesterday and I cooked it indirect at 350 for about 3 hours. I used no smoking wood and it turned out great it had a slight smoke taste from the lump. I took it off at 145 internal. It was done and still moist. I dont know if th…
  • Pigtail, Holding steady with a number 2.

  • MrCoffee, Leave the bottom vent open all the way. #2 will give me about 225-230 but with the cooler weather I will opt for the #3. I really like them and I think you will be well pleased with them. They take the guess work out of doing an all ni…
  • Peggy, Tell your dealer that this is causing you a lot of distress and the only thing that will make it any better is for him to throw in the new hinge which wil be for sale next week. Tell him you think that this might help with some of the menta…
  • Mac in NC , First let me say that I own 2 egg's a large and a small. I would buy another large if it would not cause a divorce. Reading your post made me think of something somebody once said on this forum.(Sorry I don't know who to give credit t…
  • Fairalbion, Congratulations on your first BB. I love to do them. Now that you have mastered the first one next time throw a couple more on there and you can freeze what you dont eat. Sometimes I get a hankerin for a PP sandwich and cant wait 20+…
  • Pigtail, Cool, it worked. Learned something new today. May try a picture next.

  • T.M. Hess, I am coming to Alabama this weekend however I will be rooting for MTSU. Looking foward to a good game. My prediction MTSU by 6. (wishfull thinking) Have a great weekend and eat a little for me. Pigtail
  • Big Boy, I have cooked some boston butts at about 350 deg. instead of the low and slow. They make a good sliced sandwich plain or bbq'ed. I still use the same internal temp for the butt. Hope this helps. Pigtail
  • CaptTable, I do live in Murfreesboro. I love to visit your great town for some fishing on Tims Ford Lake. I have caught some good smallmouth there before. I will be down in Lynchburg to watch the Jack Daniels cookoff this fall. Will you be ther…
  • smokeapig, i am a new owner of a large egg and i am going to buy a small to tailgate with. I was thinking pork tenderloin and baked potoatoes ( me and Dan Quayle never could spell that word). I can hardly wait. Go Blue Raiders, Middle Tennessee S…
