  • Re: Baby Backs on BGE - cant get it right

    Why not try to duplicate your oven method in the egg?

    Once you get back to that baseline - you'll be able to make small changes here and there to make them more 'egg'-like....

  • Re: Well Crud - Cracked base?

      I suppose everyone has a different situation. In my case back in those days my Eggs were in  bases on a concrete slab (well away from my home)... so besides probably being lazy I just kept an eye on it and continued to cook , (after a while the truth is I pretty much forgot about it) until I would go to the garage and see the base sitting there ;)
    That said... Smitty is an exprrienced Dealer, and sees lots of different situations... so I would think it prudent to take his advice here!

    Agreed - If my egg were down on a concrete pad away from the house, sure, I'd still cook on it.

    But my egg's on a wooden table, sitting on a wooden deck, which it affixed directly to my (wooden) house.  I'll miss egging for a little while, but IMHO, in my case, the risk outweighs the reward here. 

  • Re: Looft Lighter

    I loved mine while I had it, i did find that it lit the lump quicker than starter cubes.

    That being said, mine did die on me after a couple years - replaced with a MAPP torch, and will not be going back.
  • Re: What to you eat for dinner?

    You've got a lot of suggestions above, I just thought I'd add one more for you.

    Regarding your Chicken Salad comment, where it's OK if you DROWN it in mayo - but then why not just eat the mayo? 

    I've changed up my chicken salad recipie a little bit lately, which I now MUCH prefer, and I use less mayo than before.  Cut the mayo use down, and then sub in horseradish, and/or dijon mustard.  Same amount of moisture, less pure mayo.
  • Re: Calling @badinfluence

    Best of luck @badinfluence !  A food truck's actually a somewhat appealing idea for myself as well, i've been thinking about it/eyeing it for awhile now. 

    My original (pipedream) idea was to park my truck in the parking lot of ski hills, serve breakfast until 10, then go skiing....

    Seriously hope this works out for you and your family good Sir - I'd really love it if you would keep us up to date (at least mildly) about your progress.  The more you share here, the more I know for myself down the road!
