We hope everyone’s enjoying the first few days of summer. For us, the weather heating up means one thing - the EGG’s gonna be busy! Whether you’re making stuffed burgers
for a backyard grill out, some brats

I went to a Braves game tonight and picked up some boiled peanuts outside the stadium (good move). I picked up a BBQ pork sandwich inside the stadium (bad move - I'm spoiled). After eating the Pork sandwich (If I had to eat this as BBQ pork, I'd have to switch to that Texas BBQ beef), I started eating the peanuts. At first I thought I was just tasting the BBQ from the pork but then I realized that the peanuts had a BBQ taste. And I know it was the peanuts because it was much better than the pork.[p]That got me to thinking what would be like to boil some peanuts on the egg with some good smoke from pecan or hickory? I was thinking about filling a dutch oven with a brine solution and cooking at about 250 for an hour or so. Anybody ever tried this? Should I try for a longer time? Any thoughts other than the Wise One has lost his mind?
