  • It sounds good but I'll wait and see how it actually performs. The range on my ET-73 is terrible. Adding an antenna only added a couple feet.
  • The egg is in the nest and everything fit.
  • That is entirely up to you. I put the egg on the left because I am right handed.
  • Well I wasn't able to use the "real" bench but I was able to set up a small experiment using a heated water circulator and a calibrated Fluke temperature probe. I tested all the probes at ambient ~85*F today (30*C), 100*F (~40*C), 120*F (~50*C),…
  • Thanks. I should be able to post pics of it finished tonight or tomorrow.
  • They use Cypress because it is probably the least expensive. Cypress, Cedar, Redwood, Teak in order of expense. I just built a table using rough sawn cedar from Lowe's. I went through the whole stack and found 10 12' boards that were clear. Ra…
  • I see that figure thrown around quite a bit but where did it come from?
  • I'm not a huge fan of pop but Throwback is gooooooood!
  • I'm calling BS! It is NOT HD! YouTube only gives me the options of 360p and 480P. I want a fireball in 1080 lines of beautiful progressive resolution! I kept waiting for the string to go up in smoke as well.
  • You should've asked about a month ago. I just drove through Augusta on our way from Sunset Beach, NC to Reynold's Plantation in Greensboro/Eatonton for a few days We'll see if this one holds up and maybe I'll open a traveling egg table building …
  • I'm gonna continue to play around and see what I get but we just finished eating and everybody loved it! It was much better than what I used to make in the flower pot. Really moist and much more edible meat. The flower pot had a tendency to…
  • Thanks. Food? I can do that [img size=620][/img] 6 on pork butt, no rub, haven't even shredded it yet
  • If you get somethng that can be flashed to run dd-wrt it gives you many options to tweak. Things like signal strength, and extra channels can make life much easier if you have a difficult wireless set-up. Personally I like the EnGenius amd Linksy…
  • Cypress doesn't take stain very well or evenly I should say. I would've tried a wood conditioner first. Did you wipe the excess stain before it dried or did you lay a coat on and let it sit? The only other thing I'll add is that regular poly usua…
  • I know butts are forgiving in general but this is the first cook I've had time to mess with temp readings. The only other things I've cooked so far were a DiGiorno pizza, some chicken breasts and a spatchcocked chicken. The pizza was good but a litt…
  • Morro Bay Rich wrote: Ahhhh, this just serves as a reminder why all three of my Eggs are equipped with Tel-Tru thermometers. Are you implying that 1) the BGE dial is innaccurate? 2) the ET73 is innaccurate? 3) both? From reading this for…
  • That is what I thought as well. When I first had it set up the pit probe was clipped to the grate and reading ~30* higher. Since all this is new to me I decided to move the pit probe to the same spot as the dome probe and see if it would be more acc…
  • has me wondering about both actually. I closed the vents down a little bit and the ET73 started dropping, the dome probe is holding steady. :huh: It is still reading 22*F high but that is better than 30.
  • That is another good point. Either I or my brother in law have cut all my wood ourselves from our own healthy trees, mostly storm damage, except for the Hickory. That is coming from a co-worker that needs to clear the way for municipal sidewalks, bu…
  • The wood has not been fumigated or treated so I can't absolutely guarantee there aren't any bugs. However, it is cubed into ~2.5" pieces that don't show any signs of bug activity. Logs or large splits (firewood) would definitely be a concern. I a…
  • Just south of Cleveland in Brecksville. I was going to trade LoneStarEgg for some pecan but if there is anything you are interested in he had some peach as well.
  • So do you
  • Basically, that's it. Whatever I can send UPS for ~$10. Most of my stuff is cut into ~2.5" or 3" cubes. If interested shoot me an email.

  • The handle comes from when I first started using online forums. It was a Mustang site,, that I joined while building my 68 Mustang. The Mustang is no longer rusty but it keeps it simple to use the same screen name everywhere.
  • I stopped out there this morning and there was a different guy. He gave me the EGGcessary pack with all the hardware I was missing. I also asked him about the plate setter, he checked with the mfg and found they already shipped and they (Fireplace S…
  • I am considering it but I think I want to get used to the basics first. The parts look well thought out and the prices really aren't too bad. Are the stones that CGS sells as barriers different than a pizza stone?
  • Thanks for the tip. I am down in Brecksville. My plan in the morning is to be at the Fireplace Shoppe in Northfield when they open @ 9 and get the rest of the parts. I looked at the dealer list and I think one or two might actually be on my way in t…
  • And yes I am looking for suggestions for a remote probe, dual if possible. Will defintely check out the Maverick. Local Lowes has a taylor remote probe on sale for $19. The one review doesn't sound so good. Has anybody else tried one?
