  • that funky shaped tool you have hanging on the right wing? Looks like some mideaval torture device.

    Rick's Tropical Delight,[p]Well pardner, looks like you nailed that cook. Is that morning sunlight shining on pic 4? [p]The paper towel rack is a good idea. Amongst all those tools, I don't detect a wiggle rod.....[p]~thirdeye~

    Happy Trails

  • GriffinGaDawg,
    that is exactly what that is![p]really it's a custom made grid lifter a friend made... you like?

    Rick's Tropical Delight,[p]And the bone just pulled out! Nice. I think you'll find the left-overs, if any, taste even better. Zap a few ounces in the 'wave, pour on a bit of vinegary sauce, like B.H. Tennessee Red, or Head Country. Let stand for a minute so the vinegar evaporates some, and you have a breakfast way better than wheaties.[p]gdenby
  • thirdeye,
    thank you sir! i certainly hope it tastes as good as it smells. it's almost time to pull.[p]natural sunlight this morning at 10:30, yep. no flash 1/60 second shutter @ f/4.5.[p]those paper towel rolls are held on with small bungees and they hold the roll tight against the bottom of the shelf so the wind doesn't unroll the sheets. that works until the roll gets close to empty and then the clothespin keeps it from unrolling.[p]wiggle rod made from electric fence wire is hanging off the back of the left side. i didn't use it all last night. pure guru. i'm interested to see how much lump is left cause this is the longest i've had the egg going, 14 hours.

    Rick's Tropical Delight,
    You ought to have quite a bit of lump left. At least I did after a 20 hr cook.

  • Rick's Tropical Delight, Wow, Rick...Your butt looks grand! ;) When you find time, please foward me the brand name of the thermometers you use...and what is the "thingie" attached to vent area at the bottom of your EGG? I like the way you have your EGG set-up! Again, thank you for all and any information..as you know, I am a NEWBIE EGGHEAD and need lots of suggestions!

  • Rick's Tropical Delight, I too would like to know what thermometers you have there. [p]Thank you, Rascaal

    <p />Ann,
    thanks! we were all newbies once and these were my first big butts! heheh[p]that thing at the bottom vent is the bbq guru auto draft control that measures the meat and pit temp and feeds air into the bottom as needed to keep the pit temp constant. do a search for bbq guru and you'll learn all about it.[p]i have several different thermometers, but in these photos is the bbq guru and acurite remote (from lowes)attached to the bbq light base with a small bungee. i also checked different spots in the butts with a thermapen (as shown up there ^)(available from mollyshark here at a slight discount)[p]you don't need all the toys, but you will need at least one internal meat thermometer to make sure things are done to your liking.[p][p]

    Rick's Tropical Delight,
    Great picks. I think you would have a lot of lump left if you filled all the way to the fire ring edge. I used the guru at work one day for an experiment and cooked 24 hours at 225 then opened it all up and it burned at 600 for 5 more hours yet I had to shut it down to leave work. Hoss

  • thirdeye,
    that's a great idea... why am i not baking beer bread right now!?[p]i'll be right back, gotta check the lump level and change the setup to baking and get that bread on![p]

    Rick's Tropical Delight,
    looks great! BTW since others are asking this and that - what's with the bicycle chain and lock at the bottom? Is there a merry band of egg thieves in your area?

    Rick's Tropical Delight,
    Second to last picture.....danger danger Will Robinson :>)[p]Good stuff. You going NC style?[p]H

  • dhuffjr,
    hahaha! kinda lookes like that doesn't it![p]not sure yet on the sauce. i might try some of dat. just a little and room temp? or am i supposed to heat that?[p]most of this will be in the freezer in the foodsaver bags... i think, unless it's just too good and then the neighbor and i will not be able to move.

  • RRP,
    that will secure the bge hinge to the front wheel of the rv at the brickyard next weekend, heheh.[p]i might even cover it with a trash can or something during the race just to remove the temptation to mess with it. indy is the only track i worry about.

    Looks awesome. I like some Blues Hog Mustard on the pork. Now you can do some of that pork in your abt's.

    Rick's Tropical Delight,
    I've been known to down 4 or 5 pulled pork sandwiches...but then I'm training to be a Sumo wrestler...thats my story and I'm sticking to it.[p]I just take the bottle out of the fridge and sprinkle some on the pork, like rub your seasoning the meat not bathing it like folks do with most sauces. FYI if you didn't put it in the fridge it should be fine. Bugs don't grow in that concentration of salt and vinegar. I gave Jimmy a bottle, he said he liked it.[p]H

    <p />i shall never look at a little butt again.

    Rick's Tropical Delight,
    Pork and beer bread look great but the perfect accompanyment to big butts are, of course "flat buns"

  • cecil,
    you are correct and i have sent the neighbors in search of buns
