  • @caliking - Wings? What wings? You cooked wings? Springram Spring, Texas
  • @caliking - do not forget the wings you cooked on Saturday. Personally thought they were the  best wings of the day which is a high bar since all of the wings at the Fest were super. Springram Spring, Texas
  • @EggObsessed - how did you like the SS vent cap you bought during the fest? I got one and have installed it but have not yet cooked with it. Springram Spring, Texas
  • Many thanks to @Mickey and @Spring_Chicken,  Keith's Hardware and others for a super great time. As usual, Will, et al, at the Inn were absolutely wonderful. Cannot wait for March 2015. Springram Spring, Texas
  • Mr. Henapple, You helped us with our "stuff" when we arrived for the Frdiay "before party".  When someone does that for people without being asked, it indicates a really great guy. It makes makes me think of you very highly...kind of like I think …
  • @egger_ave   - these were the first thing I tried at the Eggfest. There were truly outstanding. Thanks for sharing. Springram Spring, Texas
  • Still have 190+ lbs to go of Rockwood, Wonderful charcoal. Will definitely reorder. Springram Spring, Texas
  • Will be there again. Springram Spring, Texas
  • I love the Cuisinart. Works wonders on brisket and love using with ribs. Springram Spring, Texas
  • lousubcap said: Opinion here (and we all know what those are worth...) but the point is the best eats of the brisket.  I don't do burnt ends for that reason.  The Franklin videos will solve your brisket process questions.  Enjoy the cook! BT…
  • Congratulation, Ashish. Will see you and family in Salado. Springram Spring, Texas
  • If mine ever breaks, I will replace it. Great tool. Make sure to store it inside the house. Springram Spring, Texas
  • I have nine bags left of Rockwood in my garage. Absolutely wonderful charcoal The best I have used. The point about "VOC's" is true for sure. Rockwood has far less than other brands which means I am up and cooking a lot faster. Springram Spr…
  • Northern California = Heaven  Personally, I prefer late October-November to April insofar as weather is concerned. Springram Spring, Texas
  • @andres1987 - your rather extravagant description of the "fancy travis method" causes me to wonder if you are any better at cooking than your obvious inability to use the English language in a suitable manner on this forum. Springram Spring, Tex…
  • Just go to the Ceramic Grill Store and get the welding gloves that Tom has found to be the best. They are. Period. Springram Spring, Texas

  • @CPARKTX - the list of ingredients incudes white vinegar but the picture shows apple cider vinegar. Which one should I use? Just want to do it the way you did because it all looks fantastic. Thanks Springram Spring, Texas
  • The Travis Method is a wonderful way to cook brisket. Just be aware of the meat temp and/or the tenderness if doing a flat ....use your probe or even a bamboo skewer to check tenderness. Springram Spring, Texas
  • # 25 Springram Spring, Texas
  • I participated with @Caliking in the Rockwood group buy. It seems to not give off as much VOC ( or whatever you call it) when initially lit. I find I am able to cook sooner because of that. Also seems to get the Egg to temp faster. I am sold on it…
  • I know a guy that works for the company who makes the Egg Carten. I think Scott has or is in the process of moving his family to another city but has expressed interest in resuming production soon. Stay tuned. Springram Spring, Texas
  • Ten bags of Rockwood charcoal, welding gloves from the Ceramic Grill Store and a Cuisinart electric knife.  Springram Spring, Texas
  • +1 on the worcestershire. Mainly on pork ribs and brisket. Took me 5 attempts to spell it correctly. Still could be wrong. I also use mustard on butts. Just the way I learned to do it.  Springram Spring, Texas
  • stlcharcoal said: plumbfir01 said:   I just completed a 20hour cook with the rockwood with 40# of butts on my LBGE... i think you are right but it still has the ability to last if you dont open lid every 5 min.... I also quit…
  • @henapple - You mentioned you do not remove the membrane from St Louis ribs. Do you think that the ribs retain more moisture by not removing it? I would love to skip this step. Please further encourage me! Hope your ribs turned out great yesterday…
  • @piney - I keep thinking about getting a vacuum sealer.  Thanks for the advice. @Carolina Q - I made pulled pork nachos that I thought were OK.  Springram Spring, Texas
  • Just picked up yesterday 10 bags of Rockwood from a group purchase here in the Houston area. Will try it out on Saturday but based on all I have heard, it is going to be top notch. @henapple - how did your ribs turn out? Springram Spring, Te…
  • The turbo method works like a charm for me. I am a total "Mickey" cooker.  I find that warmed over pulled pork does not taste as good as the first day....any recommendations? Just wife and I so always have too much. Springram Spring, T…
  • The bad part to me is that I do not know if we can ever turn it around.... Springram Spring, Texas
  • I use Cook's and cook at 350* raised direct until 140* IT. Just like Dr. Mickey orders...comes out perfect every time. I use a Woo so the grid is about felt line.  Springram Spring, Texas
