Back in August 2011 BGE corporate took over running the Egghead Forum site and installed the Vanilla forum look that is there today. It was a pretty rough transition and the folks that ran the old forum took the old format over to greeneggers.com. I would say the majority of the long time posters went with them to greeneggers.com.

I'd say the majority of those posting on the Egghead Forum now haven't been there that long and they seem to be more flexible than a lot of the folks who left. Of course there are some folks there still that enjoy stirring the pot just to because they like to but there are folks like that on any forum.

If you posted this on greeneggers.com I think you'd get a worse reaction. There's a lot more diehard Eggers there (and a lot more members in general) so the sheer numbers alone would lead to more negative reactions.

Before I get too far off topic, nice job on the vids JM!

Ahhh.. no wonder... Well I remember those die hards knew how to cook and were a tight bunch, but I personally found the condescending attitude too much. Then I found this forum and the keg forum and all was better.

Thanks so much for the awesome review videos and cooking videos on the Chargriller Kamado! I have been watching them and I am looking forward to any future grilling videos you make. So far I have grilled chicken, burgers, and steak on mine but have not been able to do any slow cooks yet. As soon as I get my temperature probes (which is ordered) I will be trying the Boston Butt and the whole chicken, I can't wait until they get here!

I as well will be cooking on one of these this weekend. I have a Maverick on order that should be at my door today when I get home. Tomorrow I am going to cook up some stromboli and then Sunday a pork butt!

Thanks JM for all the great info on this.

Cool Thanks JM!!!

Thanks for the great videos JM! After seeing them I went over with my parents to Lowe's and they got me one for an early Birthday present. I do BBQ Tools and Tech Reviews and have added this to my list to review. I was planning on buying a BGE or Primo, so I think I am going to pass now that I have this one. Thanks again for all the great info and videos!

I think Char-Griller should send you a big fat commission check for all the sales your videos have led to over the past few days

Thanks again man!

Where are your reviews located? When you do this one I'd like to link to it from my blog if possible. I created a page just for this cooker in my blog space and I want to add materials like that to it over time...

Just wow. This farkin thing will flat out cook a steak. I set up for direct and indirect cooking on it tonight and roasted some corn on the cob and new red potatoes and then ramped it up to somewhere in the neighborhood of 750° for some steaks. When I finished cooking my steak to what I thought was medium rare, I was worried because it was a little charred on the outside, but when I cut into that thing it was cooked perfectly. I think I cooked it about 3 minutes per side or maybe just a touch less... Video coming around later...

Absolutely. Pizza is the entire reason I was planning to buy a Kamado to begin with. I had an unfortunate situation about a month ago. My GF invited a couple of her friends up to have some of my famous grilled pizza that she loves so much. When that saturday rolled around, it was 28 degrees outside with wind gusting in excess of 30mph. There was no way I was gonna be able to pull off pizza cooks on the Weber kettle in those conditions. Pizza will be forthcoming, along with video :)
