So far my slow and low BBQ on the egg has been less than stellar. I have tried ribs, pork butts and brisket and all have had a similar 'washed out' flavor. I am not sure what is going wrong but I am beginning to suspect that it is just the nature of BGE BBQ. I am going to try two more butts overnight tonight before going back to the Chargriller side fire box for BBQ.
I bought the egg because I loved BBQ so much and EVERYTHING that ever came off of my old Chargriller/SFB was out of this world. Anybody that joined us for those BBQ meals said that it was the best they had ever eaten. I hoped the Egg would produce similar or better results with a lot less hassle maintaining the pit temperature but that has not been the case. The temp control is fantastic but the flavor of the meat always seems extremely bland, almost boiled. Not at all what we had come to expect from the old unit. I am using the same meat from the same store, the same rub, the same wood, the same temps but not getting the same results.
Anybody ever had this experience? If so please share.
Egg lovers please take no offense, I am pretty happy with the egg all in all and have made many great meals on it but the BBQ has left much to be desired.
