Wangs, Reebs and Mac n' Cheese (lots of pix)

Eggsperimented a little yesterday and today with the new R&B Adjustable Rig that my awesome wife got me for my birthday. 


Last night's wangs:



We sat and talked by a nice little fire while waiting for the wings to cook up.  Love this time of year!



The R&B (rib and brisket) Adjustable Rig works incredible!  You can fit lots more wings on the Egg, too, without worrying about the ones around the edges charring too much.  That was one thing that I didn't like too much about the platesetter. 



The wings were seasoned with some Dizzy Pig Viva Caliente and a little Baking Powder to aid with the crispiness factor.



Tossed with some Buffalo Ranch sauce (hot sauce, vinegar, butter and ranch dressing)



Then today, we decided to smoke up a rack of Baby Back Ribs.  I gave these a rub down with Dizzy Pig's Down and Dizzy and smoked them up with Apple Wood.



Smoked those up awhile, and then prepped some Mac n' Cheese to throw on the smoker as well.  This Mac n' Cheese had all sorts of different cheeses...some Gouda, Sharp Cheddar, Fontina, Mozzarella and even fresh Parmesan Reggiano.



Made a Cheese Sauce out of some butter, flour, half and half, and the cheeses...



Tossed that with some Penna Rigate, layered on some more Cheese mixture, and onto the BGE it went.  I ended up placing the ribs down a notch so I'd have room to add the SS grate and Mac n' Cheese.








Everything was ridiculously good!  Loving my new Adjustable Rig too.  :)




  • That is Comfort Food Comalicious!  Terrific job!  I'm hoping Santa can bring me an Adjustable Rig although I haven't been that good.  Verging on naughty.

    Dammit Dyal, I should never  have told you about this site. You are gonna make me look bad. Gonna have to either step it up or hide my cooks.

    BTW...just won a $75 gift certificate to ceramic grill store. Looks like an AR is on my way. Ok...Mrs. G won it, but what is she gonna do with it?

    I know you are just kidding Griffin, but I am gonna disagree. You can never have enough food porn and we both know Dyal will be bringing lots of food porn. 

    That new rig of yours looks really interesting. I'm getting set up to use my Egg for wokking just now, but I can see that rig in my future. 

    Everything looks great, but I'm really impressed with those wings. They look about picture perfect. Nicely done.

    That last pic belongs on the cover of a magazine.  Excellent looking meal!  My wife and kids won't let me cook the mac n cheese on the egg.  The give me "do you have to cook everything on the egg??".  I'm gonna show them this pic to try to change their mind.  

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

  • Great looking pics!
  • Great looking cook.  Well done!
