    You should consider wrapping your probs with a couple of layers of foil  -- just the portion inside the egg -- it's cheap protection to extend the life of your probes -- think they cost about $26.00, don't ask me how i know!!!  Biggest PITA is waiting for the new ones to arrive !! :((

    Charlie tuna for the tip.  I am a Green horn to Eggen
    Always open for tips/hints
    I do try to run the prob wires over the plate setter legs
    but pose puttin some foil over them wouldn't hurt
    :D :D

    I too route the cables over the plate setter's legs, but i too have a habit of enjoying a cold beverge as i cook, and i have to simplify every step -- and closing a hot egg sometimes requires quick action and that might allow that proble wire to move a couple of inches.....

    Snow? What snow? All I see is some good looking meat!

    Looks good. But you do not need the wires at all. This is a very simple cook.
    I just sit mine on the grate, like I said: simple.

    I have a 12# naked ham on today also, running a little under 300 with cherry and a bit of hickory over WG WW. No snow on the ground here, but a few flakes have been floating through the air. I'm just glad the week of rain has stopped, but it looks like it will start again tomorrow for a few more days.

    "It "WAS" good" -- you ate the whole thing???  Is the cut chunks resting in liquid??  If so "from what?".
  • dougbackerdougbacker Posts: 277
    Charlie tuna yes the chunks are resting in the juice from the ham

    Man -- your killing me ----  here i sit watching over two nine pound pork butts, which i have to transport to my buddy's house for his family -- i've been smelling this butt smoke the whole time i was mowing the lawn -- can't have any cold beverages since i have to drive --  AND you post this type of "food porn'  pictures???  Juice from the ham, now that's got to be heavenly !!!  :-B
  • dougbackerdougbacker Posts: 277
    Charlie tuna Now what is really funny is you are mowing your lawn and we eating naked ham with 15"'s of snow outside. Look at 1st pick

    Mickey And thanks for turning me on to this simple cook, The in-laws thought it was great. I like the wires, like to be able to see how things are doing from inside the house, It's cold here w/LOTS of snow, Also I am a ham radio operator and kinda like gad-gits
