| Food and Drink Board|| re: Cooking Ribs on Big Green Egg - EWE TIGER on 7/3/14 at 8:42 pm|
I'm not a BGE pro and can't tell you the best way to do it, but a couple things to keep in mind. 1) The difference in cook time for spares vs St Louis vs baby back. I prefer st louis and cook for about 4 to 4-1/2 hours at 225-275 grate temp. Spares will take longer and baby backs will cook quicker. ...

Chantix for about three to four weeks. First week, smoked as much or more than normally. Second week (dosage upped), the craving simply was not there. When the craving came back a couple weeks later I stopped taking the chantix and just fought through the cravings.

Things rust, corrode, wear out, etc. We would really need to see pics for a good assessment. What is the condition of the grill grates, burners, and flavorizer ba...

I generously sprinkle weber hamburger seasoning on the meat, then lightly sprinkle tonys on the patties. I have been told by a lot of people that it's the best burger they've ever eaten.
If I grind the meat myself, I'll just use salt and pepper.
Also, watch the fat content of the meat. Lean g...

I picked up a nice 1/2 rack of beef ribs this morning. I've never cooked them before, and I can only remember eating them once before. I rubbed them with some olive oil and sprinkled on some montreal steak seasoning, and they went on the egg at 250 degrees at 1pm. I figured I'd start basting them wi...

Heavy on the seasoning in the water since they won't be in the water that long. Add shrimp to boiling water. Keep burner on high for about 2 minutes then turn it off. Doesn't matter if it gets back to a boil. Let soak. After about 5 minutes, stir and check a couple of the shrimp. Your checking for t...
