It feels as though we’ve waited forever for college football to start, and finally the wait is over! Check out our tailgating page for recipes that are sure to become fan favorites. As an added bonus, the day before Labor Day is National Bacon Day and we don’t know about you, but we like putting bacon on anything and everything, so we’ll definitely be celebrating that. It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Greetings friends!

Brought home two chains from tenderloins trimmed at work and decided to grind 'em up and give my best shot at smoking them. Added in some stuff and rubbed the outside with brisket rub and then Stubbs BBQ sauce. One smaller than the other - my dinner companion goes more well done than me.

Grinding up!!

V-rack over a seasoned water bath indirect PS around 300*+ grate.


New rain hat! A running joke here is it ALWAYS RAINS when I do the Egg. That's a 7" chimney topper.


All done at 165* in the big boy. off and a ten minute rest.


My friend says this pic looked better:


And the final presentation.

Quick seared asparagus. Mashed chipotle roared garlic red potatoes. Roasted garlic buttered bread. And caramelized apple ginger rice pudding (off camera).


They were both well done. Which isn't a big deal. Only - oddly, the big loaf was crumbly while the little one was sliced perfectly. Weird. Neither were close to dry. Should make great sandwiches. Check out that smoke ring!!

Ok catch you later. Thanks for looking!
