  • I did see the video someone posted and none of the solutions mentioned worked for me.  Very disappointing because I thought I had the answer there. As far as the cracking...I have posted some pictures below. Some serious stuff. The cracks went right…
  • I have a large egg. The turkey is still in the mother-in-law's freezer. My main concern is what you have all expressed: Will it fit? Don't know that yet. But let's say it does. For argument sake. Now what?
  • I used it tonight. Did ribs. 4 hours @250. Wife says best ribs yet. Try it. Hey if you don't like it don't use it. Green eggs and ham my friend.
  • Beef jerky it was. Pretty good too for a first try. One thing about the coconut stuff is that the ash is very fluffy. I did not notice it but others have said they found it on their food. I guess it can get stirred up with a draft and fly around the…
  • A few days ago I picked up a 10kg box of Charcos for $25. This is a coconut charcoal. I wanted to try to make some beef jerky. I had the DigiQII and was hoping to keep a long slow burn with it.  The coconut burns clean so food can go on right awa…
  • I did something the other day for the first time and it was great. Flank steak. 4 minutes a side and 5 minute rest. Right on the coals. Nothing stuck. great taste. My only way to go from now on.
  • Commenting on Squeezy's question. I guess I shouldn't have said "a handfull" I used about 15 pieces of lump. I will include two pictures. One is of the charcoal itself and the other is of the remains of the 15 pieces after a 14 hour cook. Count them…
  • With the BGE salt and pepper shakers you're just a guy with a BBQ
  • Personally I just tried the compressed coconut shells. I thought it was great. I made beef jerky for the first time. I put in only enough charcoal that I could hold in my one hand. It did a great job. 14 hours at 165. Still some left at the end. It …
  • I also bought my Egg at an Eggfest. The wait is terrible. Been There Done That. Worth it.
  • If you don't have the salt and pepper shakers you're gust a guy with an Egg! Huge purchase is the BBQ Guru. Keeps the fire stoked at just the right temp for the low and slow. You can go to bed and it will keep it perfect for 18 hours if need be. I …
  • Thanks for the info. I was just curious. Ribmaster-Very Funny. Well Done
  • My son wants to have a RibFest at our church this fall. We will be on the BGE as well. p against a guy with a BBQ truck how goes around doing pig roast. Feeling confident.
  • That's watta wanna know. Thanks.
  • I will be there. I bought a demo egg from Lakeshore Living and can't wait. My 11 year old son is addicted to cooking. He has been making his own BBQ sauce for a couple of years. Even made a pilgrimage to Kansas City to try their BBQ. Look for us. We…
  • Ahh. Now that's a good idea. I just may do so. There is also a large patio umbrella I need at the store I was looking at. If they give me a deal on the two i may buy now. But thanks for the heads up. Kent
  • This is what I was told at the dealer here in Canada. Looking at the Egg Web Site it kinda makes sense. The Egg guys think if I'm traveling then it may be damaged during the drive. This isn't just a state line this is an international boarder. I gu…
  • I'd soak. The release is slower. I assume if you are smoking something then you have time. If you need to flash fry a burger and want some smoke maybe then just throw the chips on. As far as the foil it may make it easier to clean up. Also you may k…
