So got my new shiny Egg from Eggtoberfest and have only done a few cooks.
The first, about 2 hours after i got the egg, was just a boneless skinless chicken breast with a rub from Dinosaur BBQ and finished w their BBQ sauce.
I got the egg to temp, 375, and cooked till 155-160 internal temp.
It was direct grill, have not have time to get the toys yet.
My problem is that the chicken came out a bit tough, rubbery. It was not dry.
Did I over cook it?
I did a NY strip and rib eye the next night, each 1.5-2 inches thick.
Cooked it according to a recipie found in the BGE cook book. Direct at 650, 3 min a side, shut it down, cook for 3 more min, rest for 5-10 min
Added a couple chunks of musquet
Cooked to mid rare and rested for at least 8 mins.
Again a bit rubbery- though they seemed more tender after a few mins after the first bite
Did I not let it rest long enough?
Did more chicken the next night with a speedie marinade, again rubber using the same method as above.
What am I doing wrong?
The meats are from the same places I have always gotten meat and have not had this problem before.
Any help would be grand, thanks
