This is for everyone that owns a Big Green Egg, Big Steel Keg or any other Kamado grill that is similar.
This afternoon I prepped the Keg for grilling some burgers this evening. I wanted to use my new Kisk Ash Basket so I vacuumed out all of the ash and tiny pieces of lump. I kept the larger pie...

Bear with me. I'm worn out from cutting the grass in the yard today and I've been a bit busy with organizing an event for Keg grill owners for this October. Lots of emails.
I won't forget but I have to put everything down in one place. Hang in there.

I would do it indirect at a high temp for about 1/2 an hour(till it begins to get golden brown, keep an eye on it!)then turn the temp down low or about 225* and then let it cook indirect until thighs reach 165 and run clear juices. After breast reaches about 150* cover it with foil. Place a pan or s...
| Food and Drink Board|| re: Mold in my Big Green Egg - Cajunate on 7/7/14 at 9:27 am|
Try heating it up to about 375-400* and let it run like that about 4 hours with no food in it. That should dry out the moisture. Never had that problem with my Primo Jr. Oval or my steel Keg.
Is it on the walls or the grate?...

What better way to start a wonderful national holiday than with a nice spicy bloody mary? This was started about 9:30 this morning. I seem to do better cooking(not really ;D)while enjoying a cocktail or wine or beer or ............... ;D ;D.

Just got home from the meeting. I cut a couple of slices and it has awesome flavor, tender but no smoke ring. Kinda disappointed about that.
I'll slice it up tomorrow and get pictures.
