  • Since that would have been a indirect cook you can save all of it since no fat drippings could have landed on the unused lump.Pull out the hickory chunks and re use them as well.The small pieces can be used to start another cook.
  • Good morning Julie, Have a great time in Atlanta.Looks like the weather is going to get better starting Thursday.
  • Morning Bill, You got that right.Pot roast and chili time is here.
  • The simple test to see if it is a thermometer error or user error would be to put the probe in a glass of boiling water and see what you have.Seems to be a operator error.Do that check and you will find out what is going on.
  • Just give them a call and it will be replaced.I just went through that two weeks ago and mine just looked like a a medium amount of dew inside.They will ask you to send the old unit back and will give you a RA# to do so.
  • I hope that I did not wake up the Colonel of KFC fame.But if you want to use it as some type of logo for your dishes be my guest.It should be free and clear of any usage.
  • Thank you for the informative post.I will put my order in and give it a go.If I really get hooked it might be like going from a WSM to the Egg.For the money it looks like a good deal.
  • I have done the same type of cook using top or bottom round roast and after searing all over use a combination of wine and beef or chicken stock to get half way up the meat that is in the pot.This will make for a little different and yummy pulled me…
  • I am one that will always tell it like it is and if it hurts so be it.To my way of thinking I doubt that there will not be any more cooking on that Weber after the egg came on the scene.Use it to store accessories.
  • What happened last week when Food Lion had them on sale for $3.99? Being a chain store they should honor their advertised price on what they sell.I would have had a talk with the store manager on that issue.You should also scope out smaller grocers …
  • I cooked it at 700 degrees for three minutes per side.Then put it aside to rest for twenty minutes and let the Egg cool down to 400 degrees.Then cooked indirect till temperature for the flat iron came up to 135 degrees and pulled it. Enjoy.
  • For that price it is a great deal.Now you will know what the temperature of whatever it is that you are cooking.Right now you cant.Also when it is raining outside you can stay dry a cozy in your house and keep tabs on what goes on inside of the egg.
  • B&B charcoal comes from Argentina and you will find that a lot of the huge hunks like your opened hand will be coming out of South America.Be careful because most of this stuff has high ash and a lot of sparking that can get on to your food.Case…
  • The two that are the most popular would be the Maverick ET73 or this one rated number by Coo0ks Illustrated. Hope this works for you.
  • As thirdeye stated follow his guide.You did not state what type of dutch oven that you have and that could change things a little.There are quite a few enameled coated cast iron products that will let you not have to worry as much about keeping the …
  • I buy mine from Harris Teeter all the time.
  • Check and find a Harris Teeter near you.I buy mine when I go to the beach every weeekend and not had any luck finding it in the Baltimore area.There is one located in Columbia 410-290-5902.Hope this helps.They do have great products.
  • Thanks Bill. My next door neighbor had a sample and all he could say was da--.Smelled that smoke all day and you got me hungry.
  • For sure.Steam is steam.
  • There is life on Mars.Was that some space junk that landed in Florida?The temperature gauge looks like a new addition to the cooker and way ahead of the cooker design wise.Glad to see you up and running and have fun with your new low and slow cooker.
  • I do thank you for the fast response.I doubt if many of the folks on the forum would have the answer to that question and now they will know what is going on.I did check out our old buddy thirdeye and he did mention "three and under" and made the co…
  • Good point on taking out the innards of the egg.It will make it easier to handle.

  • I would just put it on a back seat and wrap with some blankets and the just put the seat belt around it and it should be fine.Just don't run the Indy on the way home.
  • By the looks of the display that they had it seemed to be whatever was left over they stacked it up.More than likely the bar code was different because the price tag on the isle was $9.09 per bag and when I got to the check out and came up at that p…
  • Thanks Ross.I can't wait to try it.I was thinking where in the heck can I buy Bing cherries because they are not in season then the magic word dried appeared.Thank goodness.
  • That is correct.Or a non profit organization with a tax exempt card.
  • Flat iron without question.The robust beef flavor is awesome and it cooks well from blood red to medium and still remains very tender.I also like the fact that you can find them cry o packed as small as one pound which I think is perfect when you ar…
  • You better leave a sample or you might just be put out in the dog house tonight.Temps are starting to drop and I don't think you would like that.All kidding aside That is the only cut that I have not tried.Did you find it to be a ordeal to trim the …
  • That really looks great but I just have one question.Why did you opt not to chop the apples and use sliced instead?
