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.

New Egger in Pittsburgh

Hello all (or Y'inz as they say around here).  I recently got a Large BGE and have been cooking up a storm on it (pork butts, briskets, ribs, whole turkeys, swordfish, etc).  Although I haven't taken many pictures I have one from a cook a few weeks ago.  I did an over-under with a pork butt and packer brisket.  I am one of the new guys that got in on the grill extender and am looking forward to doing the over-under again without the packer hitting both grates.  I attached a picture of them right after it went on the grill.  I smoked it with a mixture of cherry and peach.

The next set of pictures are of a small beef rump roast (~1.75lb and 2" thick, a slice most likely).  I put a rub of ground espresso, brown sugar, tien tsin peppers and garlic.  It was smoked (225ish at the grate) for about an hour and a half until it reached 130 IT.  Let it stand for 20 minutes and sliced it thin.  I haven't done a rump roast yet and was impressed.

Looking forward to more adventures!


Pittsburgh, PA
