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. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Turbo Butt fail?

First turbo butt today. Rubbed in mustard and Byron's, threw on indirect at 350 until it hit 195. FTC for about an hour. Pulled it and a whole side of bark came right off. It was really hard. Is this normal or did info something wrong?? The meat was pretty good. A little dry but I'm thinking it's because it was only. 4.5# (biggest they had).

    I have tried the turbo butts and ribs and find both to be pretty average at best.  Call me old school or whatever, but if I don't have time for a low and slow, I grill something.


    I'm ashamed what I did for a Klondike Bar!!
