  • Wow is right, not a bad looking meal in the bunch, and I agree with Fluffyb, rack of lamb needs to be on my list. Cheers! Erik
  • Thanks for the input, the sauce was really good. Had zip from the vinegar and a little heat. Really tasty. Did a pork butt, a brisket, baby back ribs, and some sausage last night with the neighbors, and no leftovers. Hope everyone had a good 4t…
  • Thanks for sharing, I saw him on the Food Network last night, certainly seemed to know his BBQ.
  • Another Lewis Center Egger! I'm in the Village of Alum Creek at S. Old State and Lewis Center Rd. I've had a Large I purchased from Mr. Mulch for about three years. Maybe there's hope for a Central Ohio Eggfest one day. Erik
  • Our football weekend came and went already, went to see Ohio State beat Marshall this evening, but I'll come up with something to cook on the Egg for the other games through the weekend. Go Bucks, cheers, and I hope your teams win this weekend! …
  • I live in Columbus now, but grew up in Oxford. I remember when it was little more than a road side fruit and vegetable stand, and it is nothing short of remarkable now. A friend of mine, Leigh Barnhart does cooking classes there. My folks sti…
  • I've had my Large about three years, and I've used nothing but BGE lump, but that's just too much, and I have to drive much further to get it.
  • It was almost $30 when I went to my BGE dealer a few weeks ago. This weekend I got some RO at Wally World, and a 20# bag of lump at GFS for $11.99. I used the RO for a pork tenderloin and sausages last night, and it worked fine. It was smaller …
  • Hi Roger: I don't post a lot, but I lurk quite a bit. I still have my gasser, but like others have said I throw hot dogs on for the kids and other basic stuff, but if I'm cooking anything of import, it's on my Large Egg. I'm doing a coffee brined…
  • We like them pretty well, a good compromise between a frozen 'za and a parlor pizza in the winter, and a quick alternative to a homemade pie in the Egg the rest of the year. The thin crust cooks nicely on the Egg, and I think the ingredients are of…
  • Blizzard: I have a large, and with various accessories you'd be surprised at how much will fit in vertical fashion. You also may consider how much lump charcoal you'll use in each. I tend to agree with fire egger's opinion on multiple Eggs. I …

  • I did three racks in my large yesterday, started at 1:00pm served at 6:00, and they were very tender.
  • As a matter of fact, they were!
  • I think they were at my feeder in Ohio a few weeks ago... Getting cool up here, time for them to move South I suppose. Great pictures, thanks, Erik
  • You might try a boat shop, we used to have sailboats and they carried most hardware in SS or brass. Gator Bait, your set up looks absolutely great! Cheers, Erik
  • Thanks everyone. The wings were great, I did half hot and half with Sweet Baby Rays, and they were all eaten. I wish the Buckeyes had come out so well, but USC got the better of them. Erik
  • Excellent point, and as luck would have it I have the pizza stone already.
  • Michael, it's funny, I've failed at some things that I thought would go better, but I've had good luck with the vertical chickens. I've done them simply with a nice rub and the placesetter at 350, and my neighbors always want to know when I'm doi…
  • Thanks, I'd like to get one, I suppose the best risk is the BGE version, my dealer is pretty good to me here in Columbus, OH. Thanks again, Erik
  • Where did you all purchase your CI Grates? Thanks, Erik
  • I grew up near there and live in Columbus now. The "Ribs King" was quite a character, and the sports memorabilia in the original Montgomery location is fun. Like some other comments, these were the best I'd eaten, but having different styles aro…
  • I'll have to check it out when I'm traveling, interestingly it is north and east of Ohio, so maybe they will come this way at some point. Thanks for the tip! Erik

  • As an aside, I looked up Dale's Pale Ale, and found that it is not sold in Ohio. Is it good?

  • I think I can smell them here in Columbus. Man those look good, nice cook! Cheers, Erik
  • Our Costco is about 2 miles away, and I really like their sirloin and thick pork chop packs. They sell quite a bit, which would lead me to believe it is fresh. We have Giant Eagle and Krogers too, and I find good selection and quality at both of…
  • Thanks guys, now I have something to look forward to this weekend. I'll let you know how it goes, thanks again. Cheers, Erik
  • I'm embarrassed to admit I've had my Egg over a year, but have not attempted. My wife is scrapbooking this coming Saturday with several neighborhood wives, so I'm inviting the men over for wings and ABT's, I'll let you know how I do. Cheers, E…
  • Those look great, I have something new to try this weekend. Cheers, Erik
  • Mrs. ewillie has the D60, no issue noted there. They are incredibly easy to use and get great pictures. Sorry to hear you are having this problem, but I hope you can find someone to take care of it for less than you mention. Erik
  • Thanks everyone! Erik
