  • Great!  Thanks for the help.  The one I was thinking was homemade, so thanks for your help. I  appreciate it.
  • hahaha...I literally LOL'd
  • So, what did you order? I ended up ordering The Works a few months ago, and I love all the rubs that I've tried (I still have tried the Red Eye Express...the coffee infused rub). I'm loving the Pineapple Head Sweet Tropical Rub on the veggies …
  • Thanks for the heads up. I'll definitely stop at HEB after work. I was planning to do ribs this weekend anyways. Good timing.
  • Congrats on your new egg. I didn't think it was too difficult to move a disassembled egg, but then again, it's better to be safe and wait for some help then to drop the ceramic pieces.
  • That looks great Robert!!! Congrats on your first low n' slow overnighter.
  • I was going to post the same exact question. Thanks for the info. I found out that I'll be in Austin that weekend for an event on Sunday, so I should have a free saturday. So, what better way to spend it than at the eggfest. Just a follow up…
  • That's cool. Thanks for the info.
  • GG, do you mind me asking what those T handles are in your bird?
  • Thanks for the info on that. I'm glad I didn't try wrapping it in foil.
  • Sorry to hear that Gary. But, thanks for the heads up. Does anyone know if these stoker probes would work at 500 degrees if you wrapped it in foil or will the same thing happen? I guess i'm like Gary, I'm impressed with the temperature control …
  • I have a similar dilemma with my ribs (I also have leftover brisket i need to use up). I actually used my Food Saver so it'll keep a little longer, and then I'll probably use mine to make some pork rib/brisket fried rice, once I decide to make some…
  • Congrats on the new BGE. The spatchcock sounds delicious. As for the temperature control, there's only one solution for that...more cooks. Enjoy
  • Mark, it can sometimes get a little daunting making all your own rubs, especially when you start trying to get the different flavors. If you find that to be the case, look online for rubs. One company you'll see mentioned on here a lot is Dizzy Pi…
  • I've been using yellow mustard lately and it definitely helps hold the rub on the meat. I was worried at first, like you, about tasting the mustard, but that's not the case. I've never tried dijon mustard though.
  • I want to add, if you want to look up different ways to cook the ribs, either check the recipe section on this site, or search the forum for rib recipes. A lot of people have discussed how they've cooked ribs. Enjoy, and definitely post pics.
  • Congrats on the new toy and good luck with your first cook. Don't be too overwhelmed with the different methods of cooking. Just experiment with all the different cooking methods and flavors and you'll find out what fits you. The best thing about…
  • It's in the article... Makes 2 and one-fourth cups 2 cups beef broth one-fourth cup Worcestershire sauce 1 teaspoon onion powder 1 teaspoon garlic powder one-half te…
  • I haven't tried it yet, but on the stoker you're able to check your cook online, as well as make any adjustments you need to with internet access (change the pit temperature, etc). So, if I'm away from home, I should be able to check my cook on my …
  • Congrats on the stoker. I love mine, even though I haven't set it up to the internet/computer. I've used mine on a couple of butts, a couple of ribs, and recently did a brisket. For the brisket, i used the Dr. BBQ injection and some dizzy dust …
  • I recently got the stoker, and I love it. I haven't set it up to the internets, but i will eventually. It's also easy to set up right out of the box without using the internet. Basically, if you want the option of adjusting the temperature cont…
  • That's a nice quick way for a delicious looking pizza. Thanks for posting it. Loved the music that accompanied the video.
  • I miss the Costco's in california because of being allowed to buy the hard stuff there. It's so much cheaper than going the grocery store. I moved to Houston, and all they carry is beer and wine.
  • I have a membership to both, and both are within 5 miles of the house. I only go to Costco. They have a better selection on everything, and to me, it's cleaner. I don't have a butcher shop near me, so I rely on Costco and one of the local groce…
  • Thanks Ross. I'll add them to the plate when I'm devouring those tasty ribs.
  • Those look delicious Ross. I'm planning on cooking St. Louis ribs for my girlfriend this weekend. May I ask what you do with the excess parts that you cutoff, I think they are called the flaps? Do you eat them off the grill, or do you add it to a…
  • Buy a second BGE and sell the others :evil: I have a large/small. You can't go wrong with that combo, unless you want the large/large combo.
  • I love my two Shun Bob Kramer's knives. I like the warranty they have, and that I can send them in to get re-sharpened for free. If I knew there was a deal out like this on woot, I would have waited to buy Shun knives. But, I'm not going to com…
  • You can catch it on TLC's website. I don't have cable, so I've been watching it online. Here you go: [ul][/ul]
  • Thanks everyone for you suggestion and input. I'll re-think my decision. I have been researching different dog breeds the past 2 - 3 years, so I understand the nature of the herding dogs compared to other breeds. If I decide that a herding dog is…
