Well, I was a newbie just a month ago, but after a few weekends I'm getting this thing under control. I did my second set of baby backs today. I pulled the membranes off, rubbed on Everglades and Accent seasoning, threw them in the fridge overnight. Today, set the egg to just under 250, put on the hickory chips, and let them go for 3 hours. Cooked direct and turned them over in the rib rack every 45 minutes. Mmmmmm... they were great. [p]Just wanted to say thanks for all of the good info that's on this board. It's ever so....inspiring. Of course, I realize that practice makes perfect. I suppose that I'll have to go out back and practice some more...darn!

  • Rob H, you've got it! Especially what you said about the pursuit of perfection. Everytime I think I got something down to perfection,, someone tells of something a little different,, I try it,, and DANG IT! It's always another avenue leading to the intersection of perfection. I keep getting scolded because everytime I change something up a little, after tasting the results, I always seem to say "man,, that was the best (whatever type of mammal) I have ever put in my mouth". I can't help it. I try not to say it,,, it just blurts out.. Just a month under your belt eahh? Your next few months are going to blow your tastebuds away.. YAAHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

  • I don't know if you have noticed, naked cooking guy,,,,,,, but I have backed off the yeeeeee Haaaaaa's. I used to use it a lot, you know,,,, being from the south,,, mating calls,, etc.,, but since coming to the forum, I feel that you do it better and you were here first. I have decided to use another of my old favorites "yaahhhhoooooooooo!". I may occasionally forget myself and inadvertently utter the old "war cry", but if I do,, please remember, that old habits die hard. AND LET'S HEAR IT,,,, YAAAAAAAAAAHHHOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    Battle cries are a personal decision!! Yeeeee Ha is not original, though it is my battle cry of choice. I use a "heeeee" and a "cheers" and a "yabadabadooo" and a "Yompin Yiminee" here and there, even though those are C~W's cries of choice. [p]That is what is cool. Not only do we pick up new cooking techniques, but battle cries as well!![p]What about a WaaaaaaHooooooooooWaaaahhh!![p]NB
