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!

BGE Thermometer Calibration

If you haven't calibrated the dome thermometer that comes with your BGE, you might want to consider it.

After cooking twice on my new large egg & having to extend the cooking times both times to get the right internal meat temperatures, I decided to check the thermometer as outlined in the instructions.

Calibrating to boiling water, I found my dome thermometer was reading 45 degrees high right out of the box. After fooling around with a wrench, hot mitt, & boiling water for 15 minutes I was able to get the temperature spot on.

Anybody else had this experience?
