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!

  • Oops! I also remember that my name here was notJo for the exact same reason as before! Duh!! Jo (notJo)
  • Guys; I was using a drip pan under the brisket but no fire bricks under that. I place my drip pan just over the coals. My temp at the grate runs 220 to 230. I don't remember my dome temp. Since I use my wonderful Maverick remote I don't bother …
  • WMK, Wooooooohoooooo I'm back!! Thank you! Jo PS Jo's back too!
  • WMK, Hiya! I checked and am nowhere to be found, neither is Jo. I'm one of the infamous spaced ones however Jo isn't! Thanks, Jo
  • Rotor, Ugh so sorry to hear about the flu dance. We just finished that too. It was some powerful stuff this year. The roast sounds wonderful. I have fond memories of a moose roast I had as a youngster but other than that never had any other wild…
  • Chuck, Very nicely done, the photo, further that loin doesn't look 1/2 bad either! Jo
  • Jethro, I couldn't believe how moist that was? I figured that done and it would be very dry. The egg constantly suprises me! Everything I cook just gets better and better. I love my egg. Jo
  • Char-Woody, I think I'll move more toward your directions. The husband was in hog heaven the prime rib was finally as (over) done as he likes. I like it much rarer. Jo
  • char buddy, I've been making Indian food one way or another since I first got married in 1976 and there was only one Indian restaurant in LA that was to far and to expensive once we had kids, I learned from their indian tandoor chef. I use this ma…

  • Nature Boy, Thanks for the help I do appreciate it. It's about 6 pounds and I got the temps down then made the mistake of opening a tiny bit cause it dropped down to about 206ish stirring the coals and the temp soared back up we are now holding ab…
  • Rotor, A member of mensa you say??? Haaaaaaaaahahahhahaaaaaaaaahahhaaaaaaaaa nope sorry about that...... I'm not even smart enough to be friends of mensa folk. It's why I can actually get stuff done ;x Jo
  • Rotor, I got mine at BBQ Galore however I bet you can get them at almost anyplace that carries the weber accessories, like Home Depot, I saw them there too. They make them for their 18.5 inch series and it sits in there just perfectly in place of …
  • Uncle Dave, Do they have a website Jo
  • Big Murth, This sounds like heaven and very easy. How do you have your drip pan installed? I used a throw away aluminum foil one but it was a bit wobbly. Did you mop it with anything? Thanks! Jo
  • Tim M , Thanks! I didn't realize I could cook something as fatty as country ribs without a drip pan. This actually works out perfectly though because I would like to eat them no earlier than say 10 PM. So looks like I should be able to dawdle my w…
