Fifth cook in four Days

Fourth cook, did some chops which were pretty good. The rapid rise in temperature in the chops surprised me. Almost bit me in the rear end. Checked them and they were all in the 125 range and 3 mins later they were 150 degrees. Snatched them of quickly at that point. Need to learn how quickly temp rises in diffrent things I will be cooking. The nice thing about this learning curve with the BGE is I get to eat. :whistle: Looking forward to doing my pork butt sat. night. That will be my first long on slow on the BGE. :laugh:

    Uhh... granted I'm relatively new here, but your saying that with 15K posts (would take more than a month or 2) that you've never done chops???

    Those are some good looking pork chops. That is on my list of things to try in the near future. Everything on the egg tastes better so the learning is fun. Thanks for sharing.

    Nope, nothing like that anymore B) . I work for the Federal Bureau of Prisons at FCC Terre Haute. My job is Correctional Lieutenant. My basic tasking is being the shift commander (in the simplest terms). I have several additional duties, which include being an instructor for lethal and less lethal weapons systems, Baton instructor (not the band type, LOL), assistant squad leader for one of the emergency response teams, they keep me busy. I enjoy cooking,BBQ, grilling, ATV's, and the shooting sports. And until I win the lottery have to the one :( to afford the others. :)

    Nope, never. Something I have to correct.
