    Something much simpler here called pork burgers. They are not sausage but ground pork made by a local packing house. I use a favorite rub and then go 4/4/2 direct at 350 dome. The last 2 minutes is to melt a slice of pepper jack cheese and then top off the burgers with grilled onions! Makes a very tasty sandwich!

    No Egg tonight - burgers on the CI Lodge Hibachi, and yesterday's Chicken Noodle Soup has been morphed into Italian Wedding Soup, one of my favorites.

    This was my first try. Actually was underwhelmed. It was very moist, but I've never had a problem with it not being. It did impart some flavor. But the meat was kind of gummy. Also the small egg did not cook this the same as the large, just because of hot spots and heat flow.

    Tasty still, but not a success.

  • I'll take your gummy, moist bird over mine.  Did first spatchcock Sunday night and did my best to prove people wrong (that it's hard to screw up spatchcock chicken).  I didn't expect a 5+# bird to cook so quickly. Needless to say I pulled it at around 200 internal.  Still edible, but barely.  Also had to cut off the burnt bottom.  Sorry, no pictures.
