  • So sad!  May he rest in peace.  I was never a big follower of his program, but he did manage to pique my interest from time to time and I am sure I would have enjoyed sitting down with him for a brew and a casual chat.  He was here locally just a we…
  • That right there looks to be illegal in the lower 48.  Very nice!
  • This guy is obviously trying to associate himsellf with the word "large" while he is nekkid.  Goes to show us that one can't get away from cameras these days.  Peace out eggheads!  ✌️
  • Cool, thanks for the response.  It does have a nut on the backside.  Didn't want to crank on something not intended to be cranked on, ya know.  
  • stlcharcoal said: KAB will solve this problem.  Great product  What he said, times deux!
  • Well said @piney.  There is always room for those on the left and those on the right.
  • It was problematic and would plug up the airholes.
  • Man, that's really coolio!!!
  • Seriously...the stall is when you are drinking beer and smoking a brisket and your wife is on your a..s to do a honey do and you stall her by telling her that you have to stay and watch the brisket.  It's called stalling...

  • Very well done!  Where was the flounder caught?
  • Sounds like a good time in the works!  Well, certainly the accents are different.  
  • Timing is everything.  I just gave away a DjgiQ.  Smobot is by far a better unit to own.
  • Botch said: I've had the chance to dump a single, sizable sum into my mutual funds (stocks) twice in my life; the market crashed within two weeks after, each time.  Granted, the market recovered both times, but I again have a chunk ready to inv…

  • GrateEggspectations said: I like your CGW two-tier! I am a big fan of the product.! Yeah, I really like it a lot.  I just wish it was made of stainless.  There are some other knockoff models that don't impress me.  The CGW one is heaveeeee dut…
  • @northgacock    I used my CGW two-tier system (the one that is no longer made) and flipped them about halfway through the cook.  The bacon crisped up real nice.  Then I glazed those on the upper tier and left the lower ones el naturale.  From best I…
  • @northgacock Gotta keep momma happy.  Everybody is happy when mommas happy.  The Tabasco Scorpion sauce added some serious heat to the sauce...but man was it good with the ribs.  I thought maybe the bacon wrap would be too much for the rich pork rib…
  • @northgacock That's correct.  I cut them into individual ribs from the beginning.  Worked out better than I expected.
  • @nolaegghead  Yep, the crowd loved em.  I will definitely be doing them again.
  • @milesvdustin , I used baby backs, rubbed with a light coat of EVOO and dusted them with the usual and then wrapped each individual rib with bacon.  Set up indirect at 265ish for about 1 1/2 hrs.  I bumped the temp up to 275 for the last 1 1/2 and g…

  • mEGG_My_Day said: baychilla said: That being said, the Smobot does to me seem like a cleaner solution if you only do low/slow.  I haven't seen any field commentary on it for a max temp reverse sear. For the sear part, you just …
  • As we say in the south, podna that's good eatin right there.  I do charbroiled oysters on the egg over a roaring flame all the time.  The first time I did them I realized that I needed some super long tongs.  Very nice, my friend!
  • FUBAR - effed up beyond all recognition SNAFU - Situation normal all effed up Hopefully you don't run into either of these situations.  
  • @kweitz - got it, understand what you mean about not looking back.  The Smobot is impressive and no fan and fan damper to worry about.  Egg on!
  • @kweitz  you are a day late and $3 short....ya shoulda bought a Smobot.  I had a DigiQ I would have given you.  Good luck with you new egg and DigiQ.
  • Very nice looking grub right there, I tell ya.  Good Job!  Enjoy the egg!
