  • Flashback Bob,[p]Wasn't the sky gorgeous yesterday afternoon![p] I marinated them in Italian Dressing then sprinkled with's Famous Rub. I usually don't go the BBQ sauce route with lamb chops, but they were great. [p]I've used italian dr…
  • Smokey,[p]I've never sauced them either, however...the sauce was there starin' at me...and the chops starin' back and I just did it. [p]Yes, they were very good. I marinated them in Italian Dressing then sprinkled with's Famous Rub. I us…

  • Heya BlueSmoke,[p]"the book is vague... Standard advice is to send in the warranty registration card and pitch the rest of the book."[p]Couldn't agree with you more :-) A friend of mine just bought her first Egg...She's obsessed with the BGE book an…
  • Oh Gordon, don't forget to add some wood chips to the fire!
  • Hey Gordon,[p]Burgers:[p]All burgers are good on the Egg. I used to make my own patties, however, the frozen Black Angus burgers they sell at Sam's are out of this world, so I don't bother anymore.[p]I heat my Egg to around 500+, and nice hot grilli…
  • DaytonEgger,[p]That sounds fantastic. What is Alabama white sauce, mayo based?
  • heya camicus,[p]Like AZ , I do my chickens at 350 using a v-rack. Chicken readily asorbs smoke, so I think you'll like the results just a well as low and slow, plus dinner will be ready sooner! You can use a drip pan if you're worried about flare up…
  • Hey Big Hoser,[p]I foodsaver in mine portions small enough to fit in a big pot, then boil them just to bring them to room temp....not to re-cook them. Then I remove them from the bag and either put back on Egg and sauce or sauce in oven. They are ve…
  • Correction:[p]A "rather" short cook :P
  • Hey Cindy Lou,[p]I TOLD you woman, you can't leave the house with baby backs on the Egg :P. It's actually a short cook. ((((Hugs))))[p]You'll get tons of GREAT advice from long time Eggers on here! [p]C'ya, fellow Egghead!
  • hey chuckls,[p]omgoodness, that looks out of this world. [p]Questions please:[p]On a scale of 1-10, where would you put the heat factor of this dish? [p]How long do you simmer the chilis? [p]So, there is nothing tomato about this? [p]What color are …
  • Hey QBabe,[p]Oh, it was gorgeous looking. Your cooking technique was right on! I think I shouldn't have soaked the planks overnight in my utility sink...argh :P[p]Tish
  • heya TRex,[p]Oh, I'm so jealous. That looks great. Maybe my fish was too mild for cedar. My cedar planked fish came out too strong. However, it looked fantastic.[p] Lessons learned:[p]Never soak plank in utility mop sink :P[p]Make sure not to burn p…
  • hey alb,[p]This works for me. I use a piece of bacon to grease up my grid if I'm worried about something sticking. Just take tongs and rub a piece all over the grid. Let it heat up a bit get hot after rubbing with the bacon.[p]Good Luck.

  • Heya Naked Whiz,[p]Well, I put it on, and waited until it started putting off a light smoke. I can't tell you the actual time frame, not long however.
  • Heya Celtic Wolf,[p]Yeah, I was going to cook it last night, then fell asleep :P So I forgot the plank was in the sink, lol. Maybe it was too wet? I don't know. I just know there are cedar chips in my guniea pig's litter...and that's all I could thi…
  • Heya Celtic Wolf,[p]24 hours.
  • Heya QBabe,[p]Thanks Tonia, printing this as we speak. I'll take your suggestion and make a creamy ricotta cheese sauce on the side. The plank I have is cedar. I have been told that golden tile is akin to grouper, similar in look, texture and taste,…
  • heya Jupiter Jim,[p]Did you cook that directly on the grate & did you use any wood chips?[p]Thanks ;-)
  • Hey SouthOfI10,[p]I just love that picture with the sun setting through the opening in the top of the Egg! Did you do that on purpose, or was that just purely coincidence?
  • Heya Flashback Bob,[p]Hum, ok...I've never done this myself. But I was thinking maybe you could do your set-up as if you were going to do a pizza. I use a place-setter on top of the grid, with a pizza stone on top. Then, you could put the veggie sli…
