  • Photo Egg said: Frankiesez said: No way I'm cooking these on the gas :-) Yea, because the oven provides better flavor. lol Yeah, I mean I'm not really looking for a smoke flavor in my steaks anyway.  The reas…
  • so nobody here is a believer in the reverse sear?   I can sear on a 24"CI pan I have (its one of the super hot electric cooktops...ugh..but it can get scorching).  The reason I didn't want to do that was smoke in the house (no hood).  All I'm real…
  • Hmm....I like this design.  A lot.   I wonder if simple steel "L" brackets would do the trick on mine?  Wouldn't be as handsome as those lovely isosceles triangles of course....
  • While doing the boil on the egg sounds awesome, had you considered actually smoking some of your malt on the egg prior to mashing?  I have some good friends who made a KILLER rauchbier by cedar-smoking regular pale malt.  Supposedly you can use a la…
  • RRP said: You do NOT want the 95w-6. That is a rope. You want the 95-6 which is the flat braided. What size egg do you have? Most people have failures using the Rutland adhesive so you will be throwing that tube away and buying Permatex Ultra C…
  • dweebs0r said: His tables include bracing in the form of triangles at the stress points.   I'm pretty sure this is the exact one I have (?).  Do you have a pic of the triangles?  I am thinking one of the prior comments was right in t…
  • RajunCajun said: The other thing that bothers me are the curved/bowed/warped boards on the end of the top itself. Disassembling and reassembling is probably your best bet...while doing so with that square I mentioned...haha.  The problem yo…
  • ok, I think they are 'bolt' bolts, as there are washers, nuts, etc. on it.  Good call on the funky oblique angle of the dome swing.  That certainly isn't helping the situation.  Dumb question, as the Egg isn't right in front of me: is it possible to…
  • @ Aviator, IME, 'gamey' usually means overcooked, or old, but I'm a little weird with game meats.  I really love that they actually each have their own flavor, as opposed to just the texture that we are all used to with 'beef'.  AKA COW! Annnnywho…
  • played "Taps" on the iPad and put it in the garbage.  I've been quietly sobbing into my pillow all morning.  
  • Its interesting I'm actually trying the same thing today after my fire went out on an overnight 10lb pork butt >:-( going to try to take the fire up to 400-450 and crisp up the skin, then dial it back, add some peach wood chips and let it roll …
  • @ egret, by "use" it, you mean, "lose it" right!???  This one stings....pulled pork would have been good today.   also, re: my "0" dome reading, that was my meaning re: the dome and egg itself...one big fat zero all around.   More importantly, I…
  • yeah, I do have homeowners.  I'm thinking of a chain to go through the handle when I'm not using it.  Its probably more of a deterrent/pain in the A than anything.  How about running a cable through the hinge in the back of it, while yes they can…
