Video of my first BGE cook.

So I documented my first BGE cook on video. Just sent it up to YouTube to share with everyone else.



I've also recorded some of my other cooks, they'll be going up as well. Feel free to let me know what you think.

    Good video, if you put the daisy wheel on with the logo on the left side, every time you open the egg it will stay put and you won't have to re-adjust the settings.how did it taste?

  • How did you know it was "DONE"?  Without knowing the internal temperature?

    Nicely done for a first cook!  Looking forward to other video's and photos as you get going.  One question, I have had bad luck with any woods other than fruit (cherry, apple) on lighter meats.  How was the Hickory?  I would think it was good, but my experience (with chicken) was not pleasant.

    I chose pork loin for my first BGE cook because I've done quite a few of them on various smokers. I can cook it blindfolded. One hour per pound at 250 and it's done but not overcooked. Another sign is when the fat on the top has split and a nice bark has formed on the outside.

    The hickory worked perfectly, nice smokey flavor. I only use hickory and occasionally mesquite for all of my cooks. My guess is the chicken may have been over smoked?
