National BBQ Month sure was tasty! We hope you got to try just as many new BBQ recipes as we did and some old favorites as well. If not, you can find all our BBQ recipes here and try them out all summer long. One of our favorites was Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise and Ted Reader’s Rum Injected Sweet Potatoes. As the weather’s heating up, use your EGG for a cool treat-Ice Cream Sandwiches! Keep an eye out for some Father’s Day recipes from chefs & their dads, coming soon!

    Trim all the hard fat off and rub down with olive oil and coat liberally with your favorite rub. Smoke around 250 dome with favorite wood, I like pecan for brisket. Start checking the thickest part of the flat for tenderness, should probe like butter at 185 until tender. Normally tender in the 195 range but each I need is different.
