  • You're local, so it's not that bad If I forget something, they have to ship overseas !
  • Oh, nice idea... I got a mini as well, and it was delivered with a 9.5" grille, so I ordered a 10" grille to fit the Ceramicgrillstore Mini indirect kit... I can use the 9.5" grille as a fire grate !
  • I'm in France, so I don't have that much choice talking about charcoal lump... I'm using "Restaurant Grade" charcoal, with big chunks of lump. They fire great in terms of temperature, and produce not that much ashes, but at least some... I started …
  • When I cook fat duck (duck for foie gras) breast on my plancha (kind of skillet) we use to carve the skin in order to make the fat cook and the skin get crunchy... as the plancha collect the liquids (there is an angle and a drop) I simply make a dam…
  • We picked granite, as corian is not so hard... And not so easy to drill/polish as advertised.
  • There's a vietnamese receipe for Pork Belly, with crispy skin. You marinate the the big piece (6x6 or larger) with Soy Sauce and Five Spice, garlic and onions. Then you scrub the skin from marinade, rub the skin with baking powder and let is dry for…
  • It is a terrace, with a roof on half, so the place where I cook is covered. I don't have any smoke issue...
  • I edited the post... first shot was made from iPhone... which is not the easiest platform for pictures Since I started the project in July, I didn't stop cooking either on the plancha, the Egg, or the Wok... I will integrate the wok tomorrow on t…
  • Granit counter top just landed today !
  • I just ordered the 4 BGE plank packs and tried the CEDAR on Salmon. A grand premiere for me... and I think a very few frenchies tried planked salmon. I turned out great ! The flavor was not strong at all... and salmon was so juicy and tender ! Perf…
  • I use wax starters... I had a pack of BGE starters and in fact, half of a square is enough to light up a Large Egg, so it burns faster and doesn't smell at all... The more debris you have, the faster it goes. The one I got now are small wax crap agg…
  • Yes, it is the second time I cook with JD chips... and it gives a really good taste. With the squash left overs I made a soup, and it was awesome !
  • French way: We sear them in a pan with butter & oil (to prevent the butter to burn) and cook them rare, then set aside, pour some shallots in the pan and turn them translucid (not brown), and then add some wine (red or whiter) just to get the co…
  • Oh, I got it... I got a porcelain coated grid... So definitively an old mini with 9.5" setup. European distributor says they only got 9.5" minis and BGE says they should have 10" grilles... :-?
  • Same same !!! I want one ! Your stand looks really nice !
  • So you had to book a new fire ring and a new 10" grille ???
  • Oh... after my large with the old firebox, now I got an old mini with a 9.5" grille. Seems that I got the old european stock !
  • I can tell you: cooking @work on the Mini, is pure heaven !!!
  • When you create a new website with Wordpress or other CMS, you have default articles to see the layout of your theme... and you got all that Lord of the Ring like language...
  • I couldn't resist to fire it up for lunch @work ">
  • The one & only time my BGE choke, was because I forgot to open the damper ...  :(|) Have you checked this video ?
  • The peel is the trick... get some wood at your local hardware store and use Naked Whiz page Made mine in less than 30 minutes and I'm very proud of it !!! I ran some pizzas in the Large 2 weeks ago (10 in a row) and the best technique is to shake…
  • Nothing... just burn the excedent burnt food... you can scrap it with light metal brush. No water, no solvant, no soap... If you want a pristine stone, buy a new one and give me the old one !
  • I forgot : 2 sticks of lemon grass chopped very thin. (I edited first post)
  • Pure diet receipe: boneless skinless chicken breast, indirect, 1 glass of white wine with thyme or bay leaves or both in the dripping pan, a few chips of maple or apple wood, cooked to your taste (internal temp). You got the taste of the wine, but n…
  • I use 1/4 Wax/Sawdust square... in fact, the first one I tried to break from the tablet split in two, and the layers separated... when I turned it on fire, it made a big ball of fire (better than 1 whole square), so I continued this way.
  • Hi Guys, just curious about how much you pay for the piece of Granit... I'm trying to get a quote here, and the price looks silly !
  • Heading to France the first of the Month, Paris...Normandy and driving for two weeks...any suggestions from a french eggie?....and welcome...check out my site on the The Green Egg and I on FB and blog...just posted a great recipe for rope sausage...…
  • Mine was damaged after a T-Rex Steak, and the 8 pizza in a row session didn't get it better... Time for some Nomex...
  • Hehe, don't ! It's steamy and packed of tourists now ! I'm better home cooking on the Egg !
