National BBQ Month sure was tasty! We hope you got to try just as many new BBQ recipes as we did and some old favorites as well. If not, you can find all our BBQ recipes here and try them out all summer long. One of our favorites was Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise and Ted Reader’s Rum Injected Sweet Potatoes. As the weather’s heating up, use your EGG for a cool treat-Ice Cream Sandwiches! Keep an eye out for some Father’s Day recipes from chefs & their dads, coming soon!

Done at 10am, resting in towels in the cooler now. Should I refridge and reheat or what?

    If you placed some hot water in the cooler for about 30 minutes. Throw 2 large towels in the dryer for same time period or if no dryer around place towels on cement driveway if sun is hot. empty water, place one towel in cooler, wrap all butts in heavy aluminum foil( hopefully u did that already). place the other towel on top wrapping around butts. Should hold you for 4-6 hours. (Yep,Car Wash Mike told me about this early on).

    If you keep them hot in the cooler with lots of foil and towels, they should stay safe temps for 6 hours. you can always check them with a thermometer. If things are looking dodgy, then put them in the oven at its lowest setting. This might help:
