  • I put my first butt (nine pounder) on last night at 11 CDT at a dome temp of 240. Been holding steady in 220 to 240 range. Meat temp is now 160. I believe I am entering my first ever stall, but I won't know it because I don't have one of those fancy…
  • It's on craigslist now for $799 -- too steep. There's also a medium for sale in Boerne with a nest for $600. What's up with all these Boerne residents giving up on their Eggs?!? Mickey, at the Salado Eggfest, will there be small or mini demos for s…
  • I bought on iBooks (iPad) for $19. Not worth full price. Agree. Bought it for my Kindle, but wouldn't recommend full price for the hardcover book. Pretty pictures, a little historical info, but not very practical recipes. I've learned tons mo…
  • Howzit, from a former Kailua resident! I found Huli Huli sauce for sale recently at World Market and did a spatchcock chicken with it. Made me miss that place even more. Best of luck with the Egg!
  • Looks awesome. Agree that the Salt Lick sauce is very unique. I recently found that they sell both Salt Lick sauces and rubs at my local HEB. Was that indirect or raised direct?

  • I think either would look fine, but agree that the granite slab would look "cleaner" as well as clean up easier.  Ash will fall into the fire brick cracks, which may or may not bother you.  Another consideration is that there will probably be less w…
  • I agree with Stike regarding draft-only Guinness.  For that reason, I don't think that bottle opener will ever touch one of its namesake beers.Great table.  I can't find dimensions on the BGE website.  You mentioned 2" height.  Can you get me an exa…
  • Yes, it's made by BGE. It's a new product, and none of the dealers I called had it in stock. The product code for the large is NESTABL. It's built similar to the regular nest -- two pieces of sturdy metal screwed together to make four legs. Surp…
  • I couldn't pull the trigger on the Thermapen but instead bought the cheaper $19 version made by the same company:…
