It feels as though we’ve waited forever for college football to start, and finally the wait is over! Check out our tailgating page for recipes that are sure to become fan favorites. As an added bonus, the day before Labor Day is National Bacon Day and we don’t know about you, but we like putting bacon on anything and everything, so we’ll definitely be celebrating that. It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

New Guy's 1st Overnight Smoke

Got my XL on Wednesday and popped the cherry with baby backs for my first smoke on Friday- turned out pretty nice.  It was just a warmup to the Butt that went on at 10pm Saturday and 18 hours later at 225º, the results...
Basic rub of s&p, paprika, cayenne, tubinado sugar, coffee grounds, and ground mustard that went on the night before and a bit more just before going on the egg with a vinegar based sauce to dip.  The entire smoke took place during single digit temps and off and on snow in Alaska.  I'm hoping to do a smoke in real extreme temps before the winter is over.  I think I'll go with 250-275 next time to cut the time down just a bit and hopefully not lose out on the results.  Thoughts from the gallery?? This tasted fantastic btw!
