I've been reading that a lot of new BGEs have been hatched over the last couple weeks. Well, I'm one of them. Got my Large a week ago, built a table this weekend and have been spoiling the family ever since. I've got pizzas nailed including a fantastic BBQ Chicken pizza. Looking for some ideas for Sunday, other than the traditional ham. Any thoughts?

    NAKED HAM / SMOKE ONLY Let me start that for the past 6 years i have only cooked Egerts Ham (this is an outstanding ham Egged on the BGE). A short while ago went looking for (did not know this at the time) a naked ham / smoke only. Looking at other ways to do a ham w/o the burbon, maple syrup, brown sugar, NO ANYTHING. Guys this was outstanding ham. It tasted like ham. It was a 7 lb Cooks ham (shank) and NOTHING was put on it (Nothing). Just smoke: both lots of pecan and cherry chunks. Cooked at 300 till 145. I did score the ham deep. Cooked indirect. image<img src="http://cdn.vanillafo

    Wow. ... really are a bunch all at once today. Must be something in the water!   Welcome!

    Spatchcock chicken is great and have heard it works just as well with turkeys - maybe a spatcher turkey with some appke wood smoke?

    @Mickey you have convinced me. Naked smoked ham it is for Easter. +1 on the spatched chicken or turkey if you don't want ham.
    It's not a science, it's an art. And it's flawed.

    The key is NOTHING on it except smoke and score it deep. It taste like ham. Did it for my wife and the last two Fest's I went to. All saying it taste like ham.

    How about turkey?  Mad Max Turkey is good and so is spatchcock turkey with your favorite rub.  I know this because Wilma doesn't like ham or it doesn't like her (I'm not sure).  Oh, I amost forgot, Welcome to the club!

    How about a couple of butts??  One for Sunday. Heck of a meal, pulled pork over "black beans and rice"!   And one for weekday pulled pork sandwiches?
