  • I have had a table and grill cover made by Challenger carts for years now. It's still in like new condition. It was made with alqualon which is what boat covers are made of. I would give them a call and see what they can do. It costs a pretty penny,…

  • After much deliberations I settled on The Sanderling Resort on Duck Island in the Outer Banks.  My Dad is originally from a small town outside of Raliegh, NC and he hasn't been back to NC in years. Should be a nice time for all.  Now I need to plan …
  • theyolksonyou said: Puerto Rico?  No experience personally, but know folks who go yrly  I have thought about that option. I've never been and don't know a thing about the island. If someone knows a great resort I'm all ears. TripAdvisor …
  • Some very good options here, thanks everyone. I'm surprised some of the Cali eggheads haven't spoken up. Then again, mother ship is in Atlanta so the east coasters are always out in force. 
  • Thanks, I hadn't thought about the keys. I'll have to do some digging on that option. Has anyone got any suggestions for the West Coast, say around LA or San Francisco?
  • I can't comment on the ninja since I don't own one, but I do know that the temp of the coffee coming out of a homemade brewer is an issue with other manufacturers. I have a nespresso machine which has a history of brewing lukewarm coffee. I waited u…
  • Sounds like you have the budget to go all the way to the XXL if it will fit. You may want to consider it depending on how many people you entertain. I have an XL and would love to have the XXL if I could convince the wife that it's worth the money. …
  • The events in Dallas are unbelievable to say the least and my heart goes out to the fallen officers families. Not being African American or a police officer I find the larger issue to be to sordid to make sense out of. I do have an incident in my yo…
  • I'd throw a party and cook it all. On a side note, beyond getting a good deal on meat why do you freeze uncooked meat?  Why not just establish a relationship with a good butcher and buy what you need for the week. The meat will taste better and you …
  • I utilize my ash to deodorize my trash cans. I use an old paint rolling pan, the ash tool, and dump all ash directly into my trash cans without bagging it. Does a nice job of deodorizing them, especially during the summer. 
  • I wouldn't risk it. I've only moved my XL once and that's when I moved houses. If you are dead set on it build yourself a ramp that has a very tame angle to it. Something that you can store when you don't need to move it.

  • I did one a while back for work. Instead of worrying about reheating it or cooking it a couple of days before I decided to use my crockpot. I put the butt on the egg at 8pm the night before the potluck. Pulled it off at 6am and wrapped it. When I go…
  • I'll never get the crowd that refuses to use the XL for small cooks. I've cooked as little as a steak and some veggies on mine. Once you shut down the airflow there is plenty of lump left for the next cook. 
  • You think that it's dangerous even sitting in a large grill cart?  I don't see how it would catch anything on fire. 
  • Jstroke said: Is this super temporary. How waterproof. Used dresser on craigslist. or one of those small rubbermaid garden shed type deals. You could mount shelves in it And store lump.  Temporary wasn't the right choice of adjectives. S…
  • I was thinking of something a little less permanent. I deck box is a thought but all my eggcessories would just lay on top of each other. I'd like shelves if possible. 
  • Cube up the butt and braise it for 30 minutes. Should be nice and tender.
  • I cube up my butts. Pulled stringy meat doesn't look appealing to me. That statement might be sacrilegious, but pork butt deserves some respect in my opinion.
  • Make the case for it not by your words but by your actions. I've been BBQing for years to where my wife knew it was a hobby of mine. It wasn't so out of the blue when I talked to her about upgrading to an Egg, she was the one that suggested we get t…
  • Easy enough, 1/3 cup kosher salt, and a 1/3 cup of onion, garlic, and crushed Rosemary mixed together. Season liberally. You won't miss the pepper.
  • Deep fried smoked pork belly?? Genius!!! At what IT did you pull them off the egg? I didn't go by temp. I smoked it for two hours and felt that it has to be done. I imagine 165 IT has to be spot on since that is what most pork is considered …
  • I smoked some pork belly for a dinner party this past week. 2 hours at 300 deg. Then I cut them into bite size pieces, dusted them with cornstarch and flour, and deep fried them. Basted with Mirin and soy sauce while they were still hot. Turned ou…
  • I brought this up to one of my co-workers who likes to BBQ as well.  We both came to the conclusion that it would inspire us to find a legal place around our office building to do lunch time cooks maybe once a month.  This may have to happen.
  • We need to get official forum name tags.  I went by your table probably 6 times and didn't even know I was talking to a forum member.  It was an awesome event, for anyone who has never been to the Fest its epic.   Saw my first mini-max and XXL BGE…
  • Don't beat yourself up, regardless of having a nice piece of equipment like the egg, sometimes being lazy is better then egging. Got to love your favorite pizza joint or taco shop.
  • Can it be rescued? The egg, not the frat. It looks as though someone tried to steal it to me. The metal bands are badly mangled on it. They had it chained to the house with a racy duty chain hooked to te bands. Either someone tried to steal it o…
  • I work about four blocks from that frat an walk by them all the time. I've never seen that egg lit and for the last 6 months its been sitting in the front lawn damaged with the metal bands all bent out of shape so the dome won't close. Obviously som…
  • Ehh, if I was in the ballpark for a charcoal grill that expensive I'd have to go with a komodo kamado big bad 32. That's not to say that I don't absolutely love my XL BGE. When you are talking about North of $3000 I'd rather spend my money on the r…
  • Looks like DizzyFest is sold out.  I was so close to going this year.  Lame me! Don't beat yourself up over it. The November Dizzy Fest is the best of the two each year. I went to both last year and they have the same level of cooking and cool re…
