    I have two: Ribs - First I soak them in water while I boil the hell out of them. I know they're ready when they turn battleship gray and I pull them and put them in the egg. I use BBQ sauce for color and to impart flavor that is lacking in this cut of meat. Hot dogs - I buy the cheapest ones I can find. Chicken lips and pig a$$holes is good eatin, I say. Grill until black and stiff.
    @Fred19Flintstone,

    Try adding a drop or two of liquid smoke to your water before boiling your ribs. You'll love the added flavor.

    Also, why waste time putting the wieners on the egg? Those babies can be boiled in good 'ol Flint, MI tap water!

    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    I really enjoy woo-ing my guests with my flank steak.  Marinate in soy, lemon juice, and w-sauce and cook to medium rare edge-to-edge and it is bursting full of flavor and can be quite a show piece.

    Sure thing. Glass + Ice + Bourbon of choice + Coke (Diet or Coke zero if you prefer) :D

    @cheech5001 does have a good point. maybe a link back to the original cooking of said dishes.

    I'm not sure. We've grown accustomed to the flavorless gray ribs. Hmmm.

    I'm on a well so I don't get the great tap water that's pre-screened for bullets, body parts & needles.

    @cazzy... did you fry up the pepperoni a bit before putting it on the pie?

    Cowboy Ribeyes.  Anytime I have made them people have said they are the best steaks they have ever had. A large amount of the credit goes to the great cut of meat and a great recipe and I just try not to screw things up.

    No, I prefer that fat from the pepperoni to render onto my pie.  It really adds flavor to the pie!

    @cazzy... How do you add lump on the long pizza cooks? (i.e. hi and slow). Do you just periodically dump and go on top? I'm assuming that the VOCs are an important part of your flavor profile.

    No, I fill up the eg with lump past the fire ring and let it rip.  I'll usually let it go until the lump runs out.  

    My crust is very crispy and my pies are never droopy.  The smoke flavor definitely comes through!

    =)) Good call. Thanks for bringing that recipe back up. I prefer free-range ice, but unfortunately that hardly ever happens in Dallas.

  • According to those who have eaten my food and their comments of "you should open a restaurant and sell this" it would be pulled pork and turbo ribs.

    If you ask the adults in my home, they would say ribs.  If you ask my grandkids, they would tell you the pizza rules.

    ABTs and Country ribs.  I get a TON of positive feedback on both.  I can't wait to do them on the egg though.

    Why would a rental car agency have their own style of pork chops?
    Okay... that's actually mildly amusing.
