  • RRP said: ... During the last 2 minutes I add a stack of cheeses consisting of 1 slice each of American, Swiss and hot pepper jack.... Hail to the Gebby Burger!!! @RRP I tried that a long time ago, because you made it sound so inviting,…
  • I think that you formed your preference, or almost a doctrine, a dogma, when cooking on other cooking devices, and that if you did a truly rigorous test of the examples you offered, grilling a steak, or chicken skewers, on the BGE with the dome open…
  • Looks fantastic! It's hard for me to eat two burgers, these days, just get too full, somehow, but the last time I made smash burgers, I put two in a bun, and it was a bit much, but boy, it tasted good!  Yours look terrific!

  • How about "Sauce Chien" ("dog sauce")?  Basically a spicy vinaigrette: garlic, shallots, scotch bonnet chilis, ginger, parsley, scallion, thyme, black pepper, lime juice, olive oil, hint of allspice.  Steve Raichlen said, Let's start in the French W…
  • Holy MOLY that looks good!!!!!!! I mean, the sausage gravy looks fantastic!  The chicken looks fantastic.  Either of them with a great biscuit would be stellar!  But ALL OF THAT AT ONCE????? I'm DYING, here, just looking at it.  Great stuff!
  • I've never sprayed or mopped a pork butt, and they're always dark, but not black, and plenty moist.  I agree with others above who say no spraying is needed in an Egg unless you're specifically trying to add a flavor to the outside (which I think wo…
  • @Beefcake83: thanks for reposting the pictures -- they were worth it!  Looks great!
  • @Beefcake83, your photos no longer show.  It seems to be a problem with hosting them on Google, because it's happened to others before.  Please post them directly on this forum, and we'll all be able to see them.  I never got to see any of your pict…
  • SmokeandBeer said: This is my second post and first time cooking chicken in the BGE and first time doing Spatchcock Chicken... You did GREAT!  It just looks wonderful!
  • Wow -- that is one seriously good looking piece of fine furniture!  Fantastic job!
  • Looks wonderful!  There's something cool-looking, ancient ways or something, about the folded picanha on the flat skewer.  Don't imagine it tastes any different than it would if it were just cooked the regular way, but it just looks cool!  Great stu…
  • It looks GORGEOUS!!!  I'm amazed and impressed at your ambition for a 2nd cook!  I've been cooking on my BGEs for years and have never cooked a duck!  (The fact that my wife really hates any kind of poultry other than chicken makes it a bit discoura…
  • WOW that all looks great!  Making my mouth water!
  • That's a really different look, and I like it!  Very nice!

  • I had a 1st Generation Thermapen and used it for many years and it was amazing and wonderful.  Then I bought a MkII and for a couple of years, at least, it's been amazing and wonderful!  I'm with @Carolina Q that this is the first I've ever heard of…
  • Love meatloaf, haven't made one in a long while.  Gotta do that.  Yours looks GREAT!
  • I can't put together gochujang meatballs and pizza, but it sure looks GOOD, and I bet it was -- great job!
  • bgebrent said: Had two of our boys up this weekend ... To a T, "thats the best meat I've ever had".  ... Wow!  Now that's a compliment!  When brisket is really good, it's hard to beat -- great job!
  • It all looks great! I'll never forget the first time I ever had avocado on a burger.  I was visiting my stepdaughter, son-in-law and family in northern California, and I have to confess that I have a chip on my shoulder about California, for some r…

  • Wow -- and I mean wow!  That looks GREAT!!!
  • SSQUAL612 said: Masterbuilt Electric Smoker... Ah...  thanks! I had been afraid that once you told me what it was I'd feel dumb for not having known, but I feel much better now!  A bunch of guys have laughed at me for not being up on all …

  • Looks really nice!  I had wood tables, years ago, and I'm glad not to have them anymore.  The metal is a great idea, and it looks terrific!
  • Wow -- that all looks WONDERFUL!!!

  • I have a Large and a Medium, and the combination is wonderful for me!  Usually it's just me and my wife, and the Medium is perfect for almost everything I cook.  But sometimes it's a little too small and the Large is great, and on rare occasions if …
  • They look fantastic!  Agree with @gdenby what a great smoke ring!
