  • Welcome to the club! Looking forward to the many, many cooks ahead.
  • I'll be following this post with interest. Our last foodsaver worked well and lasted several years under moderate use. The replacement FS works...sort of... but does not do the job reliably and doesn't give me confidence it will last as long as it p…
  • Love seeing all the different ways folks cold smoke and it looks like it is gonna turn out well. Of all the things I've made on the Egg, smoked cheese seems to be the biggest hit and the easiest. Hope you can make it the 5 days before having a taste.
  • Very well done! Thanks for posting inspiration material.
  • I was going to take pictures but had a little hiccup when transferring out of the bake pan and the bread is missing an end on one and the center section of the other. Tastes good, just don't look too purty.
  • Yum. Easy to make and tastes good. Thanks again.
  • Thanks for sharing. I fired up the egg and have two pans of this ready to go on in about 10 minutes or so. Love trying new things.
  • @cazzy - Ozark Oak is also carried by BBQ Outfitters in Southlake. There is also a BBQ Outfitters in Austin however I don't know for sure if they carry it in their story but would be surprised if they didn't.
  • I must've experienced the Cowboy lump brand in and around the time 70chevelle mentions above. The first couple of bags produced a great flavor of smoke. Thereafter, I began to notice chunks of concrete, metal, and charcoal covered plywood. The last …
  • If the BGE is out of consideration I'll give another thumbs up for the Smokin Tex. We use this electric smoker when we're camping in the RV. BGE food still has the edge in taste but this smoker turns out some good food with low maintenance. I have a…
  • I have a motorhome and intended to use my mini egg for our campouts. Like yourself, I was concerned about the ceramic getting damaged as we bounce on down the road. I strongly considered a WSM but decided against it for a couple of reasons that may/…
    in RV WSM Comment by Griller May 2013
  • My apologies for my late reply, been away for a bit. (oh wait, it seems like this has been the week of apologies.. ) @Caliking - the doors were a generic that I picked up from BBQ Outfitters in Southlake, TX. They're great to work with and will tr…
  • I got the looftlighter several years ago as a gift and absolutely love it. As others have said, it takes about about 45s to get going but once there it is like a torch. I have a torch that I use for starting charcoal fires when camping but I don't t…
  • I went and dug up a prior cook where I did two pork butts together. This was a two six pounder cook that I did at 225F. I've had bone in 9 pounders that I did at 230F that took less time than these and had some that took far longer, just really depe…
  • Thanks for all of the kind words. I'm still in shock that a). the project cleared the finance department (wife) and b). that it is sitting in my backyard. I cooked all three meals on it today and am gearing up for tomorrow. The contractor called …
  • Some folks do but I generally do not.
  • Grats Andy. My wife thought I was crazy when we bought ours but we had a surprise snow storm blow through the DFW area during a night we were smoking a pork butt for a party we were hosting the next day. The cyberQ kept the grill temp at a constant …
  • I've been dreaming of doing something like this for many years and things lined up in such a way that "some day" became yesterday when the grill was finally installed and the Eggs were placed in the Napoleonic perches. ) @Fearless - the door …
  • I can't believe there are people in this world that could even consider doing something like that much less do it. Thanks for posting. Let's hope he gets the max.
  • This is the device I tried and ultimately returned. The best range I could get with it was 5 feet before it began cutting in and out. If you read the reviews on Amazon it would seem others had similar difficulties. :(
  • Congrats on your new Egg toy. The cyberQ will get you through the cook with no problems. Let the CyberQ bring your Egg up to temp and let the temp stabilize before you put the pork on. I try to wait about 45 minutes to an hour from the time I light …
  • Sure thing, happy to help.
  • Taking advantage of the "cyber" part of the CyberQ occupied a lot of my time during Thanksgiving week. There are others out there that have reported some success remotely accessing their CyberQII and ultimately, I did too. It was a drawn out ordeal …
  • I enjoyed the episode. I've always been curious how those competitions work so it was cool to see that play out. There was a lot of smack talk going on but I just wonder if that is to play it up for TV effect. My mouth was on the floor when the guy …
  • Agree with the statement about scrap in the bag. I've pulled all sorts of things out of Cowboy - rocks, bricks, plywood. I've had some good bags and others that ruined the cook. At least it is cheap.
  • I've also had mixed results. The last several bags of Cowboys brand I tried had ply wood, concrete, and pieces of metal. The last bag I bought (and will ever buy) had a terrible smell to it that resembled melted plastic. Against better judgement, th…
  • Cool video, thanks for posting that!
  • What type of wireless gear for the cyberQ-II have been most popular?
  • lol. I still cooked in the hot weather but at least now I can sit on the patio and enjoy the blue skies and the fresh air (with apple & hickory smoke!) Was hoping for some inspiration from the egg forum and I found it!
  • Thanks for all of the suggestions. The pit beef suggestion led to an outburst from the wife pleading for dutch oven pot roast. I may do a brisket tonight and ribs tomorrow afternoon. Ahhhh, this is going to be a good weekend....
