    Kevin Wingate,
    We use Eggbert primarily for grilling, but he does a good job on ribs (rolled) and small pork shoulders. The only drawback to low and slow is the reduced lump capacity.[p]Ken

    Kevin Wingate,[p]Cooking stuff.
    Couple of small chix breasts, small steaks a few wings and drummies.
    Anything that will fit and when I'm not in the mood to fire up the big guy.

  • Kevin Wingate,[p]I'm not sure who to give credit for this, but one gentleman here on the forum uses the mini to build his fire in order to "cold smoke" salmon in his large. He has the mini vent connected to the large vent by way of a dryer tube and this way only the smoke and a small amount of heat reaches the fish. Brilliant concept and probably the most ingenious use of the mini yet. Can someone help me here with a pic and who it was? [p]Mac
