  • There are a couple of things that I've run across on the forum that will get you where you want to go. Before putting the chicken on the egg let it rest in the fridge for an hour or so. This will allow the skin to dry so that it is easier to crisp t…
  • I prefer to check for doneness by checking the internal temp. I believe the internal temp for chicken is 180. Or with chicken I'll pierce the thigh to make sure the juice that runs out is clear. If its pink it needs more time in the grill. I also ru…
  • I had some in my dome a while back; mine were thicker and black in color. I took it as an indicator that it was in a desparite need of a good cleaning. I filled with a good portion of lump and let'r rip. Afterwards, the flakes/soot on the dome was d…
  • Thanks Smokin'T, didn't think of checking there. Rusty
  • I haven't tried the "prime meats" but I have never been disappointed with any meat I've purchased from Costco. Hard to beat, IMHO. RustyEgg
  • I used the recipe/instructions that RRP provided a link to, above. Christmas dinner was my first attempt at a Prime Rib and I have to admit I was a bit nervous. I just trusted the ol' BGE and it all turned out. The Prime Rib was a HUGE success. I…
  • Thanks for all of the advice...I'll cut into smaller portions and add some wood throughout the cook. I'll definately have to read thirdeye's site before I get started as well.

  • LOL, everytime I snap a picture of dinner I get a funny look from my wife. I often wonder some day she's going to send someone to put me in a straight jacket and haul me away. Rusty
  • Yes,the classic view lets you see the topic of all posts and to read them you have to click on it to open it...similar to email. This is my preference. If you use the "Flat View" it gives you all of the posts as well as all of the messages. If messa…
  • When I mad the switch to the new forum it was a shock to my eyes. I liked the "look and feel" of the old forum; being able to see all of the posts and scrolling throught them was a breeze. So one of the first things I did was change the view to the …
  • This is exactly what I was looking for, great information and the pictures are worth a thousand words. Thanks, RustyEgg
  • That stuff is the best...I just moved to Florida (Tampa) from Cincinnati and can't find it anywhere. Rather than pay to have it shipped I thought I'd try my hand at making some myself. If anyone is in have to try the Glier's Goetta. …
