Hello and Friday's lunch

Hello everyone, I am a lurker who thought it was time to post. Thursday night I put 2 pork butts and 2 beef brisket points on for an overnight cook on my XL. Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos. In the morning I foiled the meat and added a turkey breast. After I was challenged to add more, I added some chicken wings and brats.Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos I have a Medium BGE and a Medium WOO also, but I was challenged to cram the single grid. I FTC the butts, rested the turkey, pulled the brats and wings, but left the points on for Burnt Ends. Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos Photobucket Pictures, Images and PhotosPhotobucket Pictures, Images and PhotosPhotobucket Pictures, Images and Photos Pulled the pork, sliced the turkey, my sister in law added Mac and cheese, baked beans, homemade rolls and cookies. Everyone was happy with the results.Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos After lunch I finished up the burnt ends. They will make a nice Friday night treat.Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos. I hope my pics post ok. This is my first attempt, and I know if the pics don't show, it didn't happen. Thanks for all the advice and info you have all given this lurker.

  • Pretty damn fine looking cook, even for a lurker.  Welcome and nicely done.

    Unbelievable first post!  It all looks amazing.  Way to get your money's worth out of that XL! 


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg. 

  • I'm glad you made the plunge! From where in the world do you post from? I'm in Flint, michigan.

    So you may have just won best 1st post ever. A pic of the finished burnt ends will probably put you over the top. Nice cooks.

    Great first post and cook.  My favorite pic is the loaded XL with the multiple cables sticking out for the temp probes.  Lots going on... LOL.
