  • I've had a pair for about 6 months and love them.  I even got some for my son for Christmas.
  • Terrebandit said: I wish my wife liked medium rare meat. I'd cook more of these larger standing or ribeye roast items. I have the same problem.  My wife won't eat anything unless it's cooked past well done.  I guess I could slice off…
  • Being a true egg head when it comes to computer stuff, it took a while to comply with Idiot's request so this is a test.
  • As many others have noted, a copper tee from the plumbing section would be a stronger alternative.
  • That's an amazing surprise for sure.  I'm going to show this to my friends and in-laws at Thanksgiving dinner this afternoon and hope they get the hint.  Better yet, give me the names and telephone numbers of your friends so I can invite them too.
  • I use the ove gloves too and they work well.  I'm getting my son a pair for Christmas.  I once tried cheap welding gloves from Harbor Freight and pulled the hot platesetter but won't try that again.
  • That's amazing.  Didn't know palm trees could make it that far north but fantastic for the view.
  • I've never tried coffee in any rub and am curious about the taste.  Does it just add color or does it actually impart a taste. 
  • What kind of rub was used on the bird.  I'm planning on doing my first this weekend and don't have a plan yet for how to season.
  • I rehabed a small older egg using JB weld on both the top and base.  Got some high temp spay paint from an auto parts store and painted it to look similar to an original green egg.  It came out pretty good and my son wanted an egg so he has it now. …
  • Wish I could help you directly, but when I had trouble setting mine up for infrastructure mode, I called the BBQ Guru folks and they put me in touch with a computer expert who was able to walk me through the set up.  He was extremely helpful and I'm…
  • I love the Cyber Q.  My egg is downstairs (outside a basement) so the less time I spend walking back and forth is a plus to me.  I can check temps from my MacPro (or my IPhone)which is a big help.  I think if it was more conveniently located the wif…
  • I gave the rebuilt egg to my son and he did a first cook on it several weeks ago.  Did a pork butt and said it turned out great.  I think he's doing another pork butt today.  Another Egghead is born.
  • Man I love the looks of that Kettle Q.  Do you use it for breakfast only or do you cook other stuff as well?
  • That Kettle Q looks amazing as well as all the food.  That's quite a breakfast--btw what's that in the glass?
  • I normally use a BGE stone and am very satisfied with it , but am also curious about a steel plate.  I have cooked a deep dish in a cast iron skillet and it turned out good but my wife prefers normal pizza on the stone.
  • It's obvious the glazing is not right.  I agree that BGE should be replacing and paying for shipping.  With such obvious quality issues, I can't believe they're balking.
  • I don't know how it will work for tandoori but am curious about the skewers.  What length are they and where did you get them.  I'm also wonder if they are long enough to go from the egg felt line to the bottom grate.  I think I saw where someone ha…
  • I love brisket but have been hesitant to try it for fear of failing but yours looks so good I think I'm ready. 
  • Thanks for the heads up.  I live in Fayetteville and go by the Ace on my way to Lake Jackson.  If I'm in town I'll try to make it to the event.
  • RickyBobby said: Thanks for the info! I still might just get the BGE thermometer and try to show support for my local dealer. I just knew that the Mavericks get good reviews & was wanting to make sure the BGE branded one was at least compa…
  • Those look fantastic.  Makes my mouth water.  I'm going to buy a ribeye for dinner since my wife won't be home.  You just cost me $10.
  • I didn't need to replace the bands but I did replace one of the metal pieces on the front of the band.  Just went to Home Depot and got a piece of steel and cut and drilled it to fit and then painted.  I did buy a lower vent and it fit fine.  All I …
  • Also look for anything that might be missing or in need of replacement.  As RRP mentioned, a new firebox can add a lot of cost.  Thermometers are outrageous for what you get (I think they're about $40-45.  New bands are over $100.  A new cap is $25.…
  • I like both and don't see how you can go wrong with either.  I had never cooked St. Louis trimmed until recently and found them to be delicious.  BBs were my go to ribs before that but now I'm hooked on both.
  • Hoping you, your wife and your twins have a great day.  It sure looks like you're set up for a good start.
  • I'm not an expert on meat but I think the shoulder may have less marbling than a butt and when the fat renders it should be a whole lot easier to pull apart (for the butt).  And as Ron (RRP) said, pulling at 160 may have been a little early.
  • I still haven't tried a brisket but see them at Publix all the time.  Let us know how it turns out.  Might be my turn next.
  • RRP said: I 'm a big fan of using Coca-Cola to the tune of 12 oz to say 3 or 4 pounds of pulled pork. Be sure it is the real stuff, not the diet and none of the flavored Coke products and never ever Pepsi! Key is to not tell your guests as they…
  • In anticipation of your 2nd year of Egging, would you be interested in adopting me??
