It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Some Recent Cooks

Just a few cooks over the past couple of weeks, first salmon, 2 of those pieces had only salt and pepper, one had salt, pepper and fresh dill, and the last one had Crabby Dirt. Cooked with some alder chips dropped on the coals, with some green beans in a CI skillet.imageimage

Next up were boneless chicken breast, one with Simply Marvelous Cherry Rub, one with brown dog rib-a rub, and some yellow squash spears and thick sliced vidalia onion.

Next up; straight sausage and peppers, and (perhaps my first) an actual plated photo! Served with field peas.

Next, some simple chicken pieces with sweet potatoes.

Finally, thick cut, bone in pork chops, with broccoli in the CI skillet.

Tonight, the egg wasn't used for dinner, but will probably have its first brisket thrown on around 11. That'll probably get its own thread later.

    Great cooks. And keep us posted on the brisket progress. At least three of us put one on tonight.

    Thanks! Brisket = fail, and pretty spectacular. Put it on at 11 last night, temp had stabilized about 280. Got up this morning at 5:30, egg had crept to 370 or so, brisket was around 210 and there was some pretty thick burnt ends.

    FTC'd, I'll get out a NY strip to grill up for dinner and I'll see what I can salvage from the brisket at lunch.

    How long did you cook the broccoli underneath the pork chops? No problem with the drippings?

    The broccoli took about 25 minutes, I didn't really worry about pork drippings, I had started that a couple of minutes earlier, so it had a bit of color on the bottom, and I did a reverse sear with it, so it came off 5-7 minutes before the broccoli, and the broccoli finished as the egg bumped up to 500+ degrees.

    We did a group buy for that a couple of months ago, if you search the forum you should find the manufacturer.
