    We are coming along nicely. Egg at 277 grate and meat at sitting at 165. Dome only open once since I put them on at 07am.

    Can't wait.

    And boy they were good!
  • I like the bark. It looks pretty crispy like a good layer of coarse pepper is on top. With such a low dome temp how long did they cook?

    they were done in just about 12 hrs. bark was nice and tasty. I did the FTC and when I went to pull them they just fell apart. 

    I will be doing this again soon as they were super tasty and the neighbors loved them.

    Nice job @Mkline!
    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.
