Smoking With an Egg
« on: February 13, 2010, 07:38:41 pm »
I'll be 1st.

Light up your Lump and after about 10-20 minutes depending on how you choose to light it, Close Lid Dome Cap off Intake full open.



After another 10-15 minutes put the DFMT on and adjust, about 1/2 open the smoke will start to calm



Another 10 minutes or so we are getting close, start closing down the Intake and adjust the DFMT



Around 40 total minutes or so we are running Sweet Blue



On overnight-er I usually let the Egg get completely settled in, usually about an hour.

We cooked on one for the first time today. It was fun. I really couldn't see me buying one, but it was very predictable and solid.

Great pictures....actually awesome pictures!!

Today was our first time cooking on an BGE as well.  My first thought was that they were overpriced (pre-cook), but after cooking on one all day...they rock!!  Great cooker, great temp control and very, very easy to manage.

Seriously, if I didn't have way to many cookers at home, I would have purchased one in a heartbeat. 

BBQ Island still has a good supply and I would suggest that anyone interested stop by and check them out...great cookers and even better customer service from Mike, Shelton, Sterling and the crew!!

I am now 100% sold on those BGE's and Valentines Day is tomorrow......
I love animals.  They're delicious!

I'm glad so many of you finally got a taste of ceramic cookery. They're swell, once you get used to them. Very easy to control and can hold steady temps for hours. Not to mention how you can sear steaks, bake bread and pizza (even pies) as well as slow smoke on them. I have three Kamados and wouldn't trade them for the world. Their only drawback is the work it must take to tote them to comps, but some teams do it very well. My #9 Kamado is the Hummer of ceramic cookers and weighs in at around 800 lbs. So it has rarely budged from where I first placed it, but BGE's are lighter and easy to move. If you have a spot in your backyard where you can keep them for years, they are ideal and a distinctive form of yard art.

It was great cooking with you all on Saturday, my wife and I go to a lot of Eggfests and this was the first one where we met so many people that were cooking on one for the first time.  -RP

I was cooking with Mike, his daughter and his mom and pops. Great people. Ahh the Brooklyn stories. I was the slightly chubby guy with a Coyotes jersey on most of the day. I was also giving Crash some inside tips. :laugh:
