    Smoked Signals,[p]This afternoon I have 2 rump roasts that I am going to season up and cook. I will then put them in the fridge and will shave them on the slicer tomorrow for Roast Beef Sandwiches....[p]And,I finally got all the tiles cut etc for the top of my table, so while the beef is cooking I will be laying tile and replacing the gasket on Large #1. Sunday will be laying the Grout. Monday will be sealing.... And by Wed I'll have my first table all done :)

    Smoked Signals,[p]well you have me beat for sure... i only have one egg. however, i have a 7+lb butt on. put it on last night around 11pm. i gotta say, i'd LOVE to be on a comp team where you camp out with your egg while you cook your grub on an overnighter. i had fun keeping an eye on things throughout the night last night.[p]commin up on 180 as we speak. plan to pull at 195 and toss in warm cooler for a couple hours before pulling.

    Smoked Signals,[p]Well, as big as my medium can handle. 10# of rib tips, which will be frozen overnight, to be finished tomorrow, along with 5# of teriyaki glazed chicken thighs, and a couple portobello pizzas.[p]My wife has already blessed buying another egg. Just have to figure out where it will go.[p]gdenby

    Smoked Signals,[p]Pretty crazy weekend here. Just took off 8 - 8lb butts from my two larges for a picnic this afternoon. Cooling them down, cleaning them a bit, and putting two briskets on one and 4 butts on the other for my sons graduation party tomorrow. The small just saw some green onion sausage for lunch. The mini is taking a rest today.[p]Good luck with your cooks.[p]Chuck

    Smoked Signals,
    113° here today. Did Ann's bundt cake first thing this am. Maybe some steaks this pm, but it's toooo Hottttt to do a long cook.

  • Chuck,
    Now that's some cookin.... Congrats on the graduation. Looks like everyone will be eating very well.[p]Doug

  • SirKeats,
    Overnight campout cooking is fun ... competitions are fun until turn in then they are VERY nerve wracking (sp). I have my only compeition in August... this is basically a warm up for that and also for taste testing.[p]Enjoy!

  • Smoked Signals,[p] I guess 'big' is relative .... my 4-level (homemade) grate is on right now with applejuice/drip pan, then BB ribs (Spicewine Hen & Hog rub), then spares (Dizzy Dust), then fatty (John Henry's Summer Peach rub). Expect to eat around 6:00 pm, MDT. Cruis'in right now at 225*F.[p]Tom B (EggSport)[p]

    Smoked Signals,
    Today's been crazy. I started out cooking 3 slabs of ribs for friends (one couple dealing with tough news, another couple celebrating the birth of a child. The third slab I shared with my local butcher to thank him for helping me get quality meat for competition.) Under the ribs I cooked a few thighs because I wanted to mess with yet another experiment for competitions.[p]Once the ribs were delivered, I came back and cooked Mad Max's version of Emeril's stuffed beef tenderloin. We had friends over until pretty late to share that with us.[p]Now I've got 3 large butts on, rubbed and injected. I'll be sharing those with our Sunday School class at a picnic tomorrow afternoon. (On a side note, I have to leave the picnic early to go play the part of an Iraqi citizen at an urban warfare training simulation. Should be interesting!)

    Smoked Signals,[p]No big cooks for me this weekend - I'm working at the office both days and will only have enough time this evening to do a couple of steaks.[p]Your menu sounds de-lish! Be sure to post pics![p]Monica [p]
