    Still working on a plan! Mine is a 4-5 pounder as well. I've been told toarinade with soy sauce and onion soup mix, I've googled elk roasts and there r lots of different recipies, so I'm just going through them to find one that sounds good! I figure low and slow is the way to go, definitely don't over cook! If I find a good one I'll let u know! When ur cooking yours?
  • @Central_Bama_Egger. Try smoked elk roast recipie. Looks like a good one I think this is the method I'm gonna use!!! Good luck! :D

    Thinking either ribs or rattle snake tails to take to a party
  • It will be turbo spares here.

    Welcome to the Swamp.....GO GATORS!!!!
  • I did a pork butt yesterday with Raging River to bring a little different flavor, haven't decided on what else but probably wings and some ABT's.  I decided years ago I wasn't going to be actively cooking during the game so everything will be done before kickoff unless i decide to throw some burgers and additional wings on at halftime. A thirty minute halftime gives you a pretty decent window for a quick direct cook. 
    I raise my kids, cook and golf.  When work gets in the way I'm pissed, I'm pissed off 48 weeks a year.

    My cook will not be egged for tomorrow...

    My wife has requested that I make a huge batch of chicken & andouille jambalaya... Since tonight we are going out on a "date" night, I figure to hedge my bets and just say yes and make what's she's requesting :)

    Happy wife, happy life...

    about 60 chicken wings.  i made some Jalamango (1st time).  Concocted my own pepper jelly wing sauce, and also made some balsamic glaze for wings that my wife loves.  We are pretty jazzed up I don't know if I am gonna be able to sleep tonight, my wife is also throwing down some rice crispies with orange and blue peanut butter M&Ms.

    Still undecided though the Egg is lit now and set up for either brisket or butt, methinks it's going to be butt!

    15 minutes later: We're going to kick butt, on one! We're going bone-in, apple wood, and hybrid turbo. That means we're going to keep it on the ground and stay low for a while, 250F dome or less to absorb a lot of smoke. Then around 150F IT we're going through the air with foil and crank 'er up (I love to say that) to around 325F until we put 'er over the goal line. From there it's FTC until kickoff! Go 'Hawks!

    I am trying turbo ribs for the first time. I put mustard and dust on them last night. This will be my first attempt at smoke too. Just a bit concerned over time since I've seen 350 for 1.5 hours and 3 hours.
