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 here too. Looking to buy an egg. Where did you pick yours up at? Any good deals in the area?

    Welcome. Did those sandwiches have fries , cole slaw and a fried egg on top?

    @PGHegger I was fortunate to get one as a gift from family (out of state).  I haven't been to local dealers in Pittsburgh, there aren't too many, which is a bummer.

    @Tjcoley The first round didn't, but the second just might have to.  I need to mix up some slaw.

    I have a pork butt in the fridge now with a rub waiting to go on the egg tomorrow.  I'll update with pics and description when I am done.
