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!

First Ribs & ATB

Another great cook tonight. I've cooked ribs for years in the oven but these were my first on the BGE. I cooked at 375 indirect for 3 hrs with apple wood. The temp temp held steady between 375 and 400 till the last half hour when the temp spiked to 450. I shut the daisy wheel almost all the way and closes the bottom to about 1/4". I got the temp back down to 390 by the time I pulled them off. The ribs had an awesome bark and where nice and tender. I think next time I will try 250 for 5 hrs to see how that turns out. image The ATB's are cream cheese, shredded Mexican blend cheese, Jimmy Deans Spicy Sausage, and Dizzy Pig Cow Lick.I put them on for the last hour of the rib cook. They turned out great. Bacon was nice and crispy and just enough spice. image Can't wait for Saturday and cooking hamburger's and hot dog's for 35 adults and kids at my son's birthday. So happy I got my egg. The forum has been great for learning about temp control and everything else that would make for a steep learning curve. image
