This weekend we decided to test out our new Two Tier Swing Rack Friday was a couple nice NY Strip Steaks, the new grate was perfect for getting a nice sear on the steaks!

Saturday we loaded up the Two Tier and had a appetizer  Egg-stravaganza! Moinkballs, ABTs, and Pig shots. It was the first time for moinkballs and all were great for some football watching snacks.

Chili was for dinner but it was done on the stove top and I didn't get any pics, a great day with a nice win from the Sooners! 

Sunday we tried out some jerky for the first time using a few different methods we found on here and elsewhere. We had the lump in a coffee can in the middle of the egg with the DigiQ set to 160° for 9 hours.

We were pretty happy with the result and will be trying different flavors again soon! 

For dinner we did some bone in Pork Chops rubbed with Bad Byron's Butt Rub indirect at 325° and they were so tender and juicy! I had forgotten how well they turn out on the egg and will be doing these more often.

It was a fun weekend with a bunch of different things cooked on the egg and a "GRATE" use of the new swing rack!

  • It all looks great.  +1 on the grill marks.  I use the lower grate by itself for steaks just to get those great marks.
    My actuary says I'm dead.

  • Awesome looking cooks - I actually remove the top grate from my swing grate and place directly on top of the coals for a direct sear. Move to large rack to reat desired temp...... Works almost like the spider rig.....

    @Solson005 that all looks great!  I am gonna have to try the bone in pork chops.  I don't think I have done those on the egg yet. 

    @henapple yours looks great too.   

    You both kept your eggs busy this weekend.  I'm sure many can relate...but I have 3 kids all in sports and it seems the wife and I are always going in 3 different directions.  I haven't had a good "egg-a-thon" weekend in a while.  Maybe November!



    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg wing.
