hey eggzilla, I have some trivia software in beta testing. Was wondering if it would be ok to give away a BGE or a digiq dx2 or something. The trivia contest can be run from the egg head forum facebook page and would have questions about the BGE

  • I have a large and paid around 850 (full retail) for it. 650 is a great price. I dont regret the large at all. If I need more space I would supplement with a small/med. Typically I would be smoking and grilling at the same time so would want two sep…
  • I use the starter cubes, but just use one cut in half to save$
  • The challenge for me is that I only like super fatty extra moist brisket. I stopped going to the salt lick years ago, but recently went again and told them it had to be super fatty extra moist, when they brought it out it was amazing so Ive started …
  • Ive sent them an email already as I was considering a second one and they sent me back who they are. (Wife nixed it unfortunately). This is the company They are a dealer. CB Hardwar…
  • admins? I dont want my account to get banned and all my messages erased so Ill wait until I get confirmation. If it works out I will probably do a couple of them.
  • If the eggheadforum admins want to create a facebook page and host the app there as a test, they can do the giveaway and Ill buy the egg.
  • I compared it to the cost of a nice built in gas grill. I also compared it to the 2 le creuset pots that are around $200 each. Itold her It is just a really big le creuset
  • I don't even think its really fair to compare them side by side.  WSM is a great product...  Can I produce good food on both?  Absolutely.  Are there areas where the BGE performs better?  Absolutely. I lose credibility in the article when they say …
  • Decomposition occurs through the naturally occurring enzymes in beef. It can occur independent of bacteria. It is essentially allowing it to 'rot'. Maggots and bacteria dont come into play when aging, agreed, but they are not required in decompo…
  • there are plenty of links on the internet about dry aging. They all pretty much say the same thing. I would add that you want the beef to touch as few surfaces as possible. Anywhere that moisture can accumulate will allow bacteria to grow. The insid…
  • Having a bottom support seems like a good idea and shouldnt take away from the look. 
  • haha i like the box fan idea. We will have a free standing patio cover. I was thinking about one of these vent hoods. they are for an island (we cant mount to a wall) …
  • But a whole brisket - a packer - is 10-13lbs. Problem: wife and daughter don't eat red meat. Son (11 years old) and I do. But there is no way in hell we are going to eat 13 lbs of brisket before it turns. And that would be sad. I just got m…
  • @mickey didnt realize salado is so close to austin. We will definitely plan to be up there!
  • we ate leftover brisket all day so we werent hungry for dinner. Will try the pizzas tomorrow. It is funny for 10 bucks (half the brisket) you get a ton of meat. I just watched the egg video, wife did too. Most of the meat looked overcooked to me …
  • unfortunately that wasnt my house, just a picture I found. I do want a kitchen that looks like that (Im in austin)
