Received my medium egg for Christmas and have had varying success. Fist cook was babybacks with a King Street Blues Rib & Butt Rub, cooked for 3.5 hrs and finished with Tim M's sauce. These were fantastic! Second effort was beef jerky using GFW's marinade with a nice brisket. Flavor was good but the fire got away from me for about an hour (up to 220-250)and jerky was a bit charred. Will try again next week and hope to avoid distractions. Third cook was last night Q'ing filets using salt and pepper rub and yellow mustard utilizing the 3-3-5 method. Droped the steaks on and turned after 3 minutes and shut down the egg for steaks to dwell another 3-4 minutes. These were good, but not great. Had a heavy char on the outside. While cooking the steaks, a big "whoop" came from inside the egg, and this morning, I discovered the fire ring on my egg had cracked vertically. Called Atlanta this morning and they are sending me a new one out right away. Great service. Having a greet time, learing alot, and I expect the best is yet to come! D2.
