Firstly, a thousand thank you's to all of you who wrote to encourage me, donate recipes, or provide helpful hints. You may recall I am a Newbie, will all of one week's ownership of Mr. Humpty. [p]Many of you already know Old Dave to be a gentleman and a scholar, but I experienced first hand his generosity with pages and pages of detailed instructions which helped me cook 6 pork butts and build the rack to accommodate them all. Hat's off to you, Sir, for your assistance. [p]The pulled pork was succulent and is securely wrapped and waiting in the freezer for my party in 2 weeks. This weekend I also grilled marinated beef filets, roasted Vidalia onions in coke (Excellent), fresh garden asparagus, and sliced potatoes with JJ's rub, all on the Egg. The outlay was well worth it. To those of you still debating, waiting will just delay your taste bud's enjoyment. To those of you who provided the inspiration on this site, thanks again. I'll contribute my recipes as I get more accomplished.
Best, Jo

  • Jo,[p]Thanks for the kind words but the credit is all yours. I really can't believe all you have accomplished in your first week with your new Egg.[p]To go from burgers and dogs on a metal grill to your purchase of the new Egg, building your own rack setup, then smoking 6 pork butts (33 pounds) at one time without even a practice cook would indicate to me that you are a very accomplished cook. [p]I'm looking forward to your recipes and welcome you to this fine forum.[p]Regards, Old Dave
