It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Its football season and am looking to do a long cook on Saturday. Long being anything over 2 hours. I'm looking to do something different as I seem to always do butts, ribs, and brisket which are all great but want to do something else. Let me know. Thanks!

    Pot of chili or gumbo will work.

    Pulled beef is pretty good. Big hunks of chuck, lo-n-slo, with some foiling. I've not had any quite as fall apart as pork butt, but still shredable.

    Also, corned beef soaked for 48 hours, then covered with pastrami spices makes a really fine sandwich. Steam the slices before putting on bread.

    Wings...cook them at 275 -300 indirect for 2-3 hrs so they are nice & crispy and have maple bacon wrapped tater tots cooking above the wings for the last 40 minutes or so. That way the bacon drips on the wings...OMG.. :silly:
  • Try pulled beef. I did a 5# chuck roast last week. 250 at grid for approx 2hrs/lb. Took off egg at 205-210 internal. I didn't foil or spray. Just low and slow and never touched it. Great bark. It doesn't pull as easy as pork and it took longer then I expected. Sure was great sandwiches mixed with SBR's. I certainly will do it again.

    Italian sausage and peppers is one of my favorites. Served over a nice farfalle or penne. Takes 4-5 hours to reduce all the veggies, and the flavors are incredible. I add a couple chunks of cherry wood to this cook.






  • Nice looking cook, I'd like to try it. What temperture did you do the reduction at and besides peppers and onions it looks like you added tomato sacuce? Any other spicing?

    have you tried different rib recipes like cats rib recipe or chinese style ribs or big honkin beef ribs. chinese ribs are good because you can have terryaki beef sticks ready to throw on at half time, only takes a minute to cook the sticks once the fire gets hot enough.
  • Whole Sirloin cooked low and slow like a prime rib roast, heck a prime rib roast is good. I'm thinking of spatchcocking a turkey just to give it a try.
