It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Freezing meat question

Ok I have three racks of baby backs and four quarter chickens rubbed and vacuum sealed in the fridge I was supposed to grill to marrow but its supposed to rain until wendsday...my question is can I freeze them or should I just leave them in the fridge they are vacuum sealed so will they be ok? Or should I freeze them?.....HELP HELP HELP

    I would cook hem anyway. Egg is just fine in the rain.

    FREEZE FREEZE FREEZE!  I would freeze it all as I have seen chicken go bad in 3 short days.  The smell is terrible.  I would also freeze the ribs as you don't want the rub to penetrate for that long.  Freezing should stop those ribs from sucking up that rub too much.  Just my guesses into common sense. Best of luck.  I use a vacuum sealer myself with great results.

    I probably wouldn't worry about the ribs, the chicken is a different story. I would freeze the chicken and pull it out to defrost in the fridge 30 hours before cook time.

    The rain WILL NOT effect the egg. I've cooked in the rain many times.

    The rain doesn't effect anything besides getting it fired up.  If you have a way to get it started up without soaking the charcoal you will be just fine. I've cooked in rain/snow/sleet a bunch.  Only time it affected me was on a low and slow pork butt when the snow was coming down so much it plugged the daisy wheel and the fire went out.

    Cool. If you haven't Egged in the rainier snow you haven't Egged.

    Yes your neighbors will think you are nuts but they just don't understand the power of the EGG.
