Hi all. The wife got me a BGE for Christmas and I've used it 6-7 times so far and have loved it!
So far I've cooked pork (tenderloins and chops) and chicken (breast and halves) only... using direct heat. I decided to get the wireless thermometer, which arrived earlier this week.
Here's my setup:
- Large BGE
- Electric starter
- Fogo premium hardwood lump charcoal
- Maverick ET732 wireless thermometer
- GBE Plate Setter
I'd like to try my first slow cook. Any advice? I assume I should get a Boston Butt. Here are the rubs that I have:
- Dizzy Pig- Dizzy Dust
- Chef Troy's Spice Mix- oregano, garlic, black peppr
- 3 Beer BBQ Rub
I'd like to have this ready for lunch tomorrow (before my Panthers take on the 49ers).
I know there's a plethora of recipes on the board, but being that it's my first time, any advice to a newbie would be much appreciated!
