I recently cooked a pork rib roast using the recipe in Cook's Illustrated. I added new potatoes and carots. Added white wine as a sauce to cook. If there is a better meal for $2.59 a pound I like to hear about it. Actually I would like to know your thoughts on your best cook.

    Buckiquer,[p]Quite often it is the most recent one. If I had to settle on one right now I would probably go with turkey breast.[p]Keep em Smokin,

    What a hard question! I've had some really good pulled pork, and some fabulous Smashed Chicken, but I would have to say it was a brisket that I marinaded in Dizzy Pig's Brisket Brew. It was so tender, and had a great flavor. [p]~nikki

    Buckiquer,[p]Most of the turkeys I've done. Boston butt(s).
    Pork Chops 2" thick.

  • Buckiquer, To be honest, the meal I had last night was the best. You know what the best meal will probably be Wednesday when I cook again. The more I cook on the BGE the more I feel I get better. Ribs, steaks, or chicken, every time I get done I am so happy. To me that is best part of owning an EGG.[p]

  • Buckiquer,
    It's a toss-up between smoked salmon and pizza. And then there's the ribs-and the brisket-and the spatchcock chicken-and the world class burgers. Heck, it's hard to pin it down to one favorite. Guess I'd have to go with the salmon, since that's something money just can't buy around here.[p]Best Regards,

    Lo-n-slo lamb shoulder (meshoui) rubbed with Moroccan spices; followed by brined turkeys.

  • Car Wash Mike,

  • nikkig,[p]I haven't seen smashed chicken and dizzy's pig brisket brew. can you point me to the recipe's?[p]Paul
  • Buckiquer,

    The recipe for smashed chicken is something I came up with after seeing a post on here that someone (I think MickeyT) was flattening their chicken and had excellent results. I don't remember what they did to it after that though. Smashed chicken is our favorite chicken now. You take boneless skinless chicken breast put them in a ziplock bag one at a time, and smash them really flat (good way to take out frustrations at the end of the day). Marinade overnight in Kraft Zesty Italian dressing with a good size hunk of fresh romano cheese grated into it. Cook direct at 600 for 3 minutes per side.[p]Dizzy Pig's Brisket Brew is made by Natureboy and BBQfan1. I would contact them to see about ordering it. We had gotten a sample from them, and having no instructions on the jar, I used it as a marinade. Afterwards I found out it was supposed to be a finishing or dipping sauce. It had a great flavor as a marinade though![p]~nikki

    Hi Nikki!
    As always, we appreciate the mention of our stuff...especially under the heading "best meal ever cooked"! Qfan has really outdone himself with the Brisket Brew. And you have given us an idea to create a similar brisket marinade![p]Unfortunately, we are not quite ready to sell the "wet stuff" we have been working on. Still trying to get everything ironed out on the business end, filling orders, website, legal issues, etc., before we move onward from the dry rubs. Hopefully it won't be too long!! It is a fun, but hilly/curvey road we are on.[p]Thanks again to you, and everyone that is giving us support!!
