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.

First Turkey Breast

Trying out a turkey breast for the first time...was planning on cooking at about 300-325 with some wood thrown in for smoke.  I've brined the bird.  Would you recommend cooking direct or indirect with the plate setter?  Should I use a water pan?

    Indirect. I usually take it up to 350 if I'm not smoking it.

    I do raised direct. Is it a whole breast or just one half a side? If it's a whole I would spatchcock it

    Worked out great. Brined the breast, used some Tsunami Spin rub and injected with Texas butter. Cooked indirect at about 325 some temp with a chunk if cherry wood. Pulled at 165.

    Threw some kielbasa on there towards the end.

    My first "real" egg cook.
