First did these on BGE in '06. Have done several times since. Just posting to share and get a link for future reference. Hope you try them.
PS stuffing is also great in ABT'S.

    These were indirect 325F, however I have done them 325-350F direct high in dome.

  • Looks excellent, Richard. Thanks for the idea. That may be what's for dinner at my house tonight.

    Bente, I buy lump crab that is pasturized in a can all the time. I get it at Costco for $16 -$17 a lb. It has always been good, and I have tried several different brands. Just make sure it is lump.

    I agree with Faith about the lump in the big box stores. Do not use the small cans of Geisha or other brands from Walgren or such as they have lots of shell and don't smell or taste as good as the lump.
    Or you might find Alaskan King or snow on sale and make your own. Or you could catch your own.
