  • I'm going to second the suggestion for counting calories.  It had a weird mental effect on me and I started eating less once I saw how many calories I was putting in my body everyday.  I've lost 25 pounds since I started logging calories.  I use the…
  • There is ONLY 1..... The picture must have cut out the double-wide trailer on each side!
  • Angelos might be the best I've ever had... They serve cold beer in ice cold mugs. The atmosphere is kinda neat too, lots of stuffed game on the wall and such. I have always seen kids in there.
  • No worries, I egged in the sleet and snow this last week in Tulsa. My wife said I am insane, my neighbor said I am dedicated. To be quite honest, it is insane, but that's what makes it fun!
  • Chuck-eye steaks and baked potatoes for my family this weekend.
  • A dealer in Tulsa says the same thing ... While there are good reasons (which have been given) for getting other Green Egg configurations (such as lg and sm), most dealers do not push the XL's simply because they don't want to mess with ordering and…

  • My wife helps maintain the website for Tulsa Boxer Rescue in Oklahoma. I know how much more rewarding it is (for you and the dog) to adopt than to buy from a breeder. Major major kudos .
  • I used four 1/4'' X 5'' carriage bolts. Now, I used a large fender washer on the bottom of each bolt(where it stands) with a 1/4' nut on each side of the fender washer. This holds the fender washer in place and allows me to change the height of th…
  • Thanks BigDaddy and Richard, I will check out Wal-Mart. I assumed they wouldn't have it since the other grocery stores did not seem to carry it. That's what I get for assuming. Nice to meet another Okie Egger. I graduated from OSU and I trave…

  • How many hundreds of dollars have you spent over your lifetime on gas grills and replacement parts? As far as I can tell, you buy the Egg and you are one and done less any shipping cost for guaranteed parts . I am the biggest cheap skate out t…
  • 1. Mine didn't come with anything except the egg and a grate. I purchased all the tools/accessories separate. Your dealer may throw in something small here or there. 2. It actually comes with a helpful DVD to get you started. Also, there is …
  • I'll second the texture comment. Seems like a 700 degree sear puts the perfect texture on the ribeyes I cook. Just my opinion. Coacher
  • loco, I've heard it called "Butcher's Steak". I live in the Tulsa area of Oklahoma and unfortunately, I seldom see it at my grocery store. Regards, Bobby
  • Those look absolutely mouth watering. I've started T-Rexing without the dwell step and I've been getting almost perfect medium rare. Guess it all depends on thickness . Bobby

  • At a dome temp of 220, that cook could take well over 18 hours. My advice, bump the dome temp up a bit (maybe to 250) and do your best to leave the lid closed throughout the cook. Also, make sure you start with plenty of lump, maybe even fill in t…
  • Ribhead, I'm new to the Egg as well (bought a lg in January) and I have found the Dizzy rubs to be fantastic. I'm sure there are other great rubs and spices, but Dizzy's stuff seems to be head and shoulders better than grocery store rubs. On the o…
