    Mike,

    What did you bread with? I'm having chops tomorrow night myself. Might give it a try.

    Those look really good. Just butter milk? No bread crumbs or anything like that?

    Don't know what mike used, but I like Panko the japanese bread crumbs. Also great as topping for au gratin & mac & cheese.

    1/3 cup flour, 1/3 corn meal and a heavy dose (2 tbsp) of Swamp Venom. A little salt. When I cook again, I will baste with a sweet bbq sauce, the heat of the Swamp Venom and the sweet bbq sauce really mixes the flavors well.
    These were about 1-1 1/2 inches thick.

    Sounds like a good meal, Mike. I did something like that with chicken wings from the DP site, but cooked the wings raised direct, not indirect.

    Are you using the grate mates for the SBGE? If so, how have they worked out for you?

    Thanks!

    I love the gratemates. I even go indirect with the wings. I just like that cook better. I just think there is less room for error indirect.

    Thanks, Mike! You're not kidding about the direct vs. indirect method for the wings. Even on a raised direct setup, I was turning the wings a lot to keep them from burning.

    I'll try them indirect next time, as you've suggested/recommended.

    I make 1 flip Mike going indirect. Let me know how you like that.

    Will do--I like the idea of not having to pop the lid all the time, and a single flip for the wings will definitely be welcome. Thanks again!

    Mike,

    275 for the wings too?

    How long when you go indirect with the wings?

    Regards,

    I tone it down a little but really don't care. When I can pull a wing up from the grate freely, I turn and finish. The turn is to get a good crust on the other side.

    I really need to take better notes. 1-1 1/2 hours. Depends on how thick.
