  • Re: Official BGE Covers - Different Styles

    I've a 60" table with a cutout for a large Egg. My mini sits opposite it on the other end. 

    For several years I bought the mother-ships version of a cover and they ALL leaked as well as being flimsy.

    I was up at Lowe's and tripped over one of the generic covers they have that was the right dimensions. $19 and I've not any problems in the last 8 years. It's held up beautifully.

    Not paying any of  my massive SS check to Big Green Egg for crappy material. They should stick to building Eggs and forget all of the "fancies" they seem to think are so valuable. Rant over.
  • Re: The Bison Is Poised To Become The U.S. National Mammal

    Whoa! Congress can make the ol' buf' a National symbol but, is pretty much unable or incapable of much else? They'll point to that little piece of legislation as a milestone of their tenure I'll bet.
  • Re: Ghost Peppers...What Should I Do With Them?

    An acquaintance of mine, knowing I like HOT showed up one afternoon last year with 2 bhut jolokia peppers wrapped on newspaper. He said a friend of his who liked hot gave them to him because they weren't good of anything in this world that he knew of.

    I immediately made a pot of chili so I could see what the fuss was about, I sliced off a small piece of the devil pepper and tossed it in the pot.

    Threw the chili out.

    With that small piece of the pepper it wasn't even a pleasant hot it was frikken hot. Not something to be messed with!

    Be careful
  • Re: Cold weather BGE-ing

    Best I ever got to cook in was 0 degrees and, it snowed a little during the cook. Eggie didn't know the difference.
  • Whoa! Broil King Keg?

    Just had a text via a friend of a friend about a guy who supposedly had an Egg he wanted to sell so I gave him a call. What he had purchased was a Broil King Keg "better than an Egg" so the salesman said.

    I'm always suspect when someone wants to get rid of an Egg. And, each time I have run into this situation I offer to go to their home and show them the basics of how to use the Egg. Lighting the charcoal, adjusting temperatures etc. In each instance (6 or 7 times since about 2000) the folks have kept the Egg and been happy about their purchase.

    This poor guy bought an $899 double walled metal cooker thinking it was okay.

    He's going to get rid of it himself this winter and in the spring go shopping for an Egg. He asked me if I would come with him when he buys his Egg and give him a hand learning about it. He's only in Rhode Island about 40 miles from me so it will be a piece of cake.

    I'll be more than happy to help him out to get another poor soul sucked into the vortex of the Cult of the Egg!
