My first experience with a frozen egg. We had an ice storm and 1/2 of the 150K homes in our area are without power. But more importantly my egg is encrusted in ice. Or, I should say was. With a few pieces of newspaper in the top to thaw it, along with a gently and judiciously applied rubber mallet, I was able to open it.
Got it cleaned and set up for a midnight cook. I had frozen fingers after I was done and promptly applied hot buttered rum to help the thawing process. I'll light it up (the egg that is)later on tonight.
The plan is to start a brisket with ambient temps in the double digits. Teens, that is. I hope my Maverick remote survives the cold to eliminate some trips to check on things in the wee hours of the morning. If anyone has any advice for this operation, other than the normal load it up and watch the temp process, let me know.
I'll give a progress report as temperatures and conciseness allow.
