  • So if you are going to cook with the dome open at you get the Egg up to that temp with the dome closed (no top vent) and just leave bottom vent at that position?  
  • Drip irrigation...I recall seeing a post about it somewhere in the 9 pages, but was hoping to get a little help. Found these two systems, both are a bit big for my garden, but figured it was a good way to start.  Feedback or suggestions? https://w…
  • Glad they were helpful.  I've been thinking of doing raised beds since weeds always seem to be an issue.  Growing up my family always did in ground though and my dad had a Troy Bilt Horse tiller he bought new in 1973.  These were the BGE of tillers …

  • Costco is great.  Wish ours had the prime packer briskets though.  Oh, and their food court has a great brisket sandwich.

  • Trying the 5 dollar rib rack out, not sure how the bend test will work.
  • It is 16F here, Egg holding steady at 250F with two racks of baby back ribs in.  On at 1240, just going to go indirect until they are done.  Hadn't planned on cooking, but the awesome sister in law said she'd watch the kids for the day, and with the…
  • As long as it is out by July for Porkopolis' Eggfest, I'll be happy...
  • Great looking cook.  One question, what is SPOG?

  • What would be nice is an outdoor fire detection system.  Haven't found much yet, but the seem to go along the lines of thermal imaging cameras.  Those aren't going to be cheap, and there are some technical issues to work out as well such as false al…
  • Speaking of returned items, there is a local online auction house that sells Amazon, HD, and a few other places returned items.  They won't say Amazon, but they'll list it as an Amazonian sale.  They also do business liquidation sales, from products…
  • Here is another cool item you may want to consider, the PSWoo platform.  This thread got me thinking if the spider could be used with the oval stone or if I could get some sort of cross bars for my PSWoo2 to hold the oval stone.  Assuming it'll work…

  • The platesetter fits into the PSWoo2 and I put it in legs up like you would for any indirect cook.  The metal ring of the PSWoo2 holds the platesetter in place and the metal rings sits on the ceramic ring (brain fart as I can't think of the name of …

  • Don't forget it is still going to be cooling down, but still hot.  I'm pretty sure they'll also remove any hot coals prior to you leaving.  
  • How about the table nest for a large with a piece of 3 cm thick granite underneath?  I just finished staining my table and already have the table nest, need to find the granite.
  • Is your Baking Steel rusted?
  • nolaegghead said: Everyone overbuilds the crap out of everything.  2x4s are fine for two eggs and a 6 foot span.  You can google the dead and live weight loading of the material and you'll find (what is it, 6' span?) it'll hold a hell of a lot …
  • Might want to replace the 2x4's with 2x6's on the bottom shelf.  Moving the Egg's to the edges will also help.  
  • Good luck and will be interesting to follow.  Not sure if it is how the picture is taken, but your table looks to be bowing in the middle where your Egg sits.  
  • The smaller one was a tad dry but the larger one was spot on. The pic is of the larger, it broke into two pieces when lifting to pull.
  • Thanks plumbfii01.  These are boneless and I pulled the smaller one 30 minutes ago and it is FTC'ing.  The other was 189 in the center mass and going to let it go for a few more minutes and then pull and FTC.
  • They are almost done.  I should have rotated them an couple of hours ago though.  What I'm finding is the outer parts of the butts are almost at 190-210 and probe is sliding in great, but the inner parts are at 180+ and meeting some resistance. I ro…
  • Up to 170F it, think I'll pass on foiling and let them ride?
  • Think 7ish each
  • Pulled at it 130. Resting a few under foil while sides are finished.
  • Not sure what the size of the feet are, but the surface area of the nest that comes in contact with the bottom of the egg looks to be much greater. That bigger area will better distribute the pressure.
