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!

Did my first competition this weekend at the county fair. It was a bit intimidating seeing all these big bbq rigs, teams of 4 with their matching shirts. Of course the 2 big BBQ restaurants in the county were there too. I only had a large egg, a digiQ, lots of beer and my wife to help drink the beer. We cooked all four categories. Chicken, Ribs, Butt and Brisket. My goal for the weekend was I didn't want to finish last. SO this was shocking...............
Grand Champion
Awards and prizes: 1st in chicken, 1st in ribs, 4th in butt, 2nd brisket a $400 dollar check, 2 new tables, a 10x10 EZ-up canopy, 2 zero gravity lounge chairs. Damn I love my egg!
