    I've got a dip that I call Super Bowl Dip.  Make it every Super Bowl and maybe a couple of times during the year.

    I've got so much smoked pork butt in the freezer that I may just enjoy some really good left-overs without the fuss. My egg and I are in a "time out" until I use some of it up! Go Patriots!

    Once I know who is in it I will decide. We always do our Super Bowl meals based on the foods of the cities in the game.

  • @GrannyX4 ; I freaking love tamales and have seen that recipe, they look great!!  I used to make tamales for a restaurant in my hometown.  We sat them straight in a pot and added water about halfway up the tamale. We seasoned the water with cayenne pepper, paprika and garlic powder.  so good.

    I am going to do another Packer Brisket. I did this one last year and followed Bubba Tims recipe it turned out great.

    This is an awesome idea. Too bad Houston crapped the bed. Coulda had brisket.

    Yes, Fat Boys Cow Girl Ridem Rub. I initially bought it because I like the name but now it is my favorite on baby backs and boston butts, the butts were from Costco. They were very moist and melted in your mouth. Some of my best work yet...lol

    That seems like a ton of work!

    I'm in the set it and forget it camp. Have you had a mopped and un-mopped brisket off your egg? If so, how big of a difference does mopping make?

    Just a hack that makes some $hitty BBQ....
  • JRWhiteeJRWhitee Posts: 2,701
    I only mopped it for the first couple hours as I did it over night so it was out there by itself for a while so I am not really sure how much of a difference it would make. Mine turned out great though.

  • @JRWhitee That looks awesome.  I still have not mustered up enough confidence to do a brisket, especially a packer.  I've seen many horror stories on this site that made me nervous

    I am thinking about doing pork three ways. 
    First, I am going to try this bacon recipe I saw on here (or somewhere).  The recipe says to smear red and green chili pepper jam on both sides of the bacon and then cook it and served it as a snack.  Second, I am thinking about smoking a boston butt for pulled pork.  Lastly, I am making bacon cinnamon rolls I saw on the Necessary Indulgences website.

    Some of my friends are going to do wings and some side dishes.  We will be eating like kings...and queens!

    It took me 3 briskets to finally nail it, first one was shoe leather right after I got my egg and had no idea what I was doing. This was prior to finding the a forum. After that I got ideas but the real key imo is taking it off when it is tender not some predetermined temperature somewhere between 190-200 for mine. I thought the packer was easier than the flat.

    I'm certain they are. Too much filler, though. Not enough crab. I would still enjoy them. Open mouth, open mind.
