It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

100 lb cook coming up this weekend

My church group is popping out babies left and right, and my wife signed us up to take dinner to the three sets of new parents on Saturday.  She casually mentioned to me last night that I may want to go to the store tonight as Scotty would be busy this weekend, when I asked what she had in mind she brought me up to speed on the new arrivals.  So I've been thinking and I'm planning on hitting the store tonight for my largest cook thus far (only six months in).  The following will be going in Scotty this weekend:

20lbs of spare ribs ( 5 racks trimmed St. Louis style)
15lbs of pork shoulder (2 7.5lb butts, one for slicing and one for pulling)
15lb packer brisket (first brisket cook but I'm pumped)
5lbs of chicken (one whole spatch style)
15lbs of red potatoes (quartered, oiled, s&p)
10lbs of a side item yet to be determined (likely a mixture of zuch and squash)
20lbs of charcoal (I know counting the charcoal is kinda cheating)

That isn't even counting the weight of the various rubs, oils, and spices to be used (or the beverages for the cook). 

Plan to start the butts and brisket Friday night and FTC sometime mid morning Saturday. Set up for the ribs and sides which should be done around 3 or so, at which point I will foil the ribs and sides and do the chicken (may two now that I think about it).

Shopping tonight to get this party started.

    Not to discourage but brisket is a difficult first cook. Nevertheless, have fun. Sure it'll be great. Good to see you using the egg for a awesome cause...

    Looks like a lot of food for 3 sets of new parents! I'm sure you'll feed yourselves as well. :) Nice of you to do that.

    The goal is to leave them with enough for left overs.  The last thing new parents need to worry about is what they are going to eat.

    Our class uses mealtrain.com  to organize the process.   It is really easy to get started.  If you have emails of your friends and family, you just start a mealtrain and you email the link to everyone and they go to the link and sign up to bring you food.  It is obviously awkward to sign yourself up, but it should be pretty easy to find someone to start one for you.  It is a great way to welcome new members of a Sunday School Class.

    Am I the only one?

    Thanks for all the well wishes.  Picked up the butts, ribs, chickens, potatoes, peppers and sausage last night.  Getting the brisket tonight and going to go ahead and make my sauces and mix my rubs.  I will take pics and do my best to keep this updated.  This is by far my largest undertaking.

  • Whole packer brisket secured last night.  Surprising how hard it was to find in Birmingham.  Luckily, I found a local grocery who supplies a bbq joint. 

    Going to trim and rub tonight.

    As has been said already, this is very nice of you.  If you have a chance during the cooks, take a few pics as I would like to see the Egg cooking all that you have planned.

    Good luck!

    That is very nice of you to show me how to sign up, but I should have mentioned I was just kidding. We have quite a few people offering to bring food already.
    If the baby is born in time maybe I can show him how to smoke a turkey! Ha.
    Thanks, again.

  • Brisket is on. Going to foil at 150 internal, and add the two butts on a raised rack.
    ·
  • While the brisket was going, spatched the chickens to dry the skin overnight on the fridge, rubbed the ribs, and put the butts on.
    ·
  • Some of the ribs
    ·
  • Butts prepped and ready
    ·
  • Brisket was almost at 150, so foiled with a but of beef broth and back on. Butts on too.
    ·
  • Brisket at 165 internal, butts have been on 25 minutes, and I'm hitting the hay. Temp holding perfect. To be continued.
