Re: BBQ - With Egg


I don't know much about the Egg, the homeowner was just talking about how he'd like one then asked if we could squeeze one in the BBQ. Looks real nice quality though. This is the larges size.
He's going to cook a turkey in it

All of the Egg type bbq's can produce great results.

It's all on the operator.....

but the old weber kettle will do the same thing....

for a hell of a lot cheaper.....

the lynx, ill go head to head with my gas weber any day....

True about the egg vs weber, but they burn half the charcoal and the heat distribution is really even. No need to refuel 3 times in one cook.

I wouldn't put the Weber against a Lynx, Lynx uses cast brass burners and have an overall better fit and finish. You can lift the lid with the flick of a finger. They are really a cut above, but they run like 5k to 20k. I'd put Lynx closer to that of Kalamazoo.

I could cook a decent steak with a couple pieces of rebar over a fire. I'm just a zoid when it comes to fancy gadgets.

Re: BBQ - With Egg


I don't in part because this one was a modification to an existing BBQ. If you scroll down a bit you will see another thread I posted from a while back that has a few pictiures of how I build them. And thanks

Re: BBQ - With Egg


It's poured (ready-mix) concrete. We have started using a countertop mix that includes a little superplasticiser, and some ingredient that prevents surface cracks. We've used it twice now and it finishes real nice.

We have a guy who does the concrete finishing, I do the block, and veneer, supervise and help with the forming.

After about 18 days curing we applied a low luster sealer to this one.
