It feels as though we’ve waited forever for college football to start, and finally the wait is over! Check out our tailgating page
for recipes that are sure to become fan favorites. As an added bonus, the day before Labor Day
is National Bacon Day
and we don’t know about you, but we like putting bacon on anything and everything, so we’ll definitely be celebrating that. It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here
1st Butt put on an hour ago...
Hey Gang,[p]I purchased the small BGE about 3 weeks ago and hope I have worked my way up to this (I have done burgers, spatchcocked chicken, pizza, bread, and TRex'ed steaks (mmmmmm, my mouth is still happy from those...))[p]6.5 lb shoulder rubbed last night, put on a stabalized 240-250 egg with a few chuncks of maple at 4pm CST. Temp is back up to a stable 240-250 and I am off to my daughter's track meet and my son's baseball game. I have never walked away from a cook before (That might be because we used to do shoulder in a Weber kettle adding one briquette at a time....talk about a labor of love.) but it seems like I have everything going in the right direction. More to follow with pictures on the morning (or afternoon, or whenever...)[p]One question - I don't seem to be seeing much smoke comming out of the top and one of the large chunks was placed right on the fire. (I have 4 other med. size chuncks buried around the edges of the lump.) Should I just trust that I am getting smoke on the meat or do I need to investigage further? (I think I am looking for an excuse to open it up and take a peak )[p]Cheers!
