  1. http://ceramicgrillworks.com/products-page/product-category/large-2-tier-adjustable-swing-rack-system/ Love this thing.
  2. Just turned 10lbs of pork belly into about 8lbs of bacon. Bliss. Freaking egg does it all.
  3. That's what I said too. Instant free TicketI talked with them for a while today. Called in and asked for retention. She said she could give ST MAX to me for 6 months at $45. I said no, can I get it for free. No. What kind of deal can I get? I got it down to $34 for 6 months. Not bad...but not happy. So I said, what if I want to disconnect. Then we have to send you to the disconnect desk.Another nice lady. She explained it to me. Since I'm still under contract till next year (I got two free HD DVR receivers last year), I don't have much bargaining room. She dropped the price to $34 for 4 months, gave me $30 of my bill for a year if I signed up for Prime which even at full price is only $5 more than I'm paying for my grandfathered package. $136-$360 > I actually saved $224 on the year.The bonus, she said, look, you are still under contract. If you want ST for free, call back next year when you are not under contract. Call back and get it for free.I simply said Verizon said they wold pay my termination costs and its too expensive with the ticket for something I dont need that much. Be nice, and call until you get it. Good deal, but you can get more.
  4. Tis is such a great story. I iwhs i knew more about him other than what I have read. How likely is it he rushes for 500+? Can he have seven tds on the ground? Hate the bockering, and it is hard to find the information. Make your case for him or move on,please.
  5. I think he has a career year, but not yet elite. I think I like Freeman more to make a bigger jump.
  6. I have a year remaining on my contract as I was a new customer last year. I called last week and did the following: Said my wife was told that Verizon was cheaper, ST was too much since we thought it was free for two years and found out it was only one year, and that Verizon would assume out termination fees. This coupled with the loss of the Viacom stations had me seriously considering canceling. Was there anything they could do? They offered the Sunday ticket $199 package for free but would not upgrade. I was nice, said great and hung up. I called today and did this: My wife reminded me how much I travel and that I won't really use the Sunday ticket but a few times over the course of the season. Unless they threw in the ST Max, I would probably like to cancel. They threw it in for free. So, I am good to go this year, no cost for the ST Max. If I want to get greedy, I might call up to get some more money knocked off the monthly bill. And if one of my threads in the FFA tells you anything, I'm clearly not married. Just use the excuse and be nice and call multiple times until you get what you want.
  7. Anyone have recommendations on gloves to use for grilling? I had a pair but lost them in the move to my place and they still go hot. I want really high temp gloves, if possible.
  8. With the end of my school year this weekend, time to start firing up the Big Green Egg and make ribs, brisket, pulled pork, etc
  9. So after all this bull####, did you decide on how to proceed?
  10. Community Supported Agriculture...code for a box of local produce you pay double to have brought to you directly because you are such a nature lover stuck in the big city. It's a way for yuppies to feel better about all the other crap they ingest. It's like those idiots that buy Vitamix machines and then just use them to make milkshakes once a week.
  11. Bacon Bash Food Festival this Saturday. As long as it's good weather, I am going to kill some time here, drink a lot, and then make bad decisions
  12. How dare you haggle for the cost of the Sunday Ticket?! What? You negotiated a new price for your car, too?? You're gaming the system! And you didn't negotiate at the flea market did you? Communist!
  13. Way too much work there. 70% of that doesn't make a damn bit of difference. Especially on an egg.Probably right, but I like the way they come out. It's not that hard, just seems like a lot of steps when written down.
  14. Come on buddy, try to keep up.He broke up with her like 6 months agoI got distracted after a while. I thought the dog was still the only link between them? Give the dog to the pound.
  15. For my ribs: Remove membrane Apply a bit of dry rub Apply yellow mustard Apply dry rub again Put in fridge overnight Let ribs out for an hour before putting on grill Foil, put on grill indirect raised at 250 2 hours in, unfoil, put a pad of butter, maple syrup and refoil Hour later, unfoil, place on grill Spray with mix of apple cider vinegar and apple juice every thirty minutes Baste with sauce at end if desired over 30 to 45 min. The longer you go in the foil, in my experience, the more tender they become. Some people like fall off the bone, I prefer a bit of a tug when eating the meat. Yes, a tug.
  16. Looks awesome. You kept the fire lower which probably helped with flare ups. What temp did you cook at? Yeah, I had read that so I didn't add any more charcoal.375 for about an hour and 15 minutes. Looks great. What was the internal temp when you took it off?
  17. I prefer to cook chicken on a raised grill if cooking direct. When the time comes that you want a raised grill, there is a very simple method if you just buy a second grid and then attach some bolts to it.Looks like thishttp://www.dreamglass.org/Egg/Grill_Setup/Grill_Setup4.jpgIf cooking direct, you just put this second grill right on top of where the normal one sits.so what should I do today with no raised grill? Probably going direct and see how it goes.Three soup cans in between the grids.
  18. My egg takes hours to cool after even a low temp cook.
  19. Mine is sitting on my front steps. Any adviceFor the super peel? I make the pizza and then transfer seamlessly from counter to stone.
  20. I bought a Super Peel for pizza, one of the better things I've purchased.
