  • Have you tried Nature Boy's Tangy Chicken Thighs recipe in the forum here? They are awesome!
  • My neighbor and I both got our BGE's for Fathers day last year. He cooked a nice low and slow Butt as his first, I went with a nice thick Costco Tenderloin. I did the TREX method. I followed the instructions for getting a nice lava hot …
  • I like my Aluminum one. I have never had a problem with sticking on mine, and it only cost me $10 at a restaurant supply store. If you have kids and are going to let them use it, one of the nice things is that if they drop it, the edge holds up, a…
  • I cooked my 14 pounder at 375 indirect for the entire cook. I cooked it to 115 so it was pretty rare, maybe the ends were medium rare....This is 1 hour into the cook, which only ended up taking 2 hours and 45 minutes. I used a fresh herb paste so …
  • I found the below listed site very helpful when trying to learn about the different cuts of meat. It was a nice place to start.
  • I followed this recipe
  • I'm curious about your 22-hour cooks? Is that more a result of the temp you are cooking at or the piece of meat? I normally do the boneless Costco butts. They are about 7 pounds. I cook them at about 225 and only my last one went a full 2 hours …
  • My current favorite is From Red Hook brewery, it is their ESB.
  • I have used this
  • I have both as well. What kind of shape is your grill in? I got my large BGE, with a BBQ Guru and several other accessories out the door for about $1000.00. I think you would be hard pressed to get a quality grill and smoker for the same price. I…
  • What an awesome setup! Nice to know you can just throw the meat on the cooker, walk inside, and not have to worry about whats going on out on the deck. Now if I could just get the meat to cooperate with my schedule! My 14 pound boneless prime rib…
  • Anyone have an idea about how long a 14 pound prime rib will take?
  • AHAAAA!~ Lawnranger....i found your post....going to give these a try!
  • can you share your potatoe ball recipe?
  • I live out side Seattle WA. and we get lots of rain. :ohmy: I have had my egg for almost a year. I use the Green Egg cover, and I store my caste iron daisy wheel and grid inside my house to prevent rust. I found a Pizza Box that the grid fits in,…
  • Ed in TX, I have cooked several of the Costco boneless butts; I have never noticed a big difference in moisture or flavor. I have never bothered tying them up either. I don’t have a Sams club nearby, and my local grocer/butcher charges almost $4.…
  • WDAN, This is my favorite flank steak recipe! Got this recipe out of an old Cooking Light magazine. It was awesome![p]1/4 C Packed Dark Brown Sugar 1/4 C Minced Green Onion 1/4 C Bourbon 1/4 C Low Sodium Soy Sauce 1/4 C Dijon Mustard 1/2 t Fre…
  • glenn, I cooked this one with great success. Have not tried it on the BGE yet but I am sure it would be a winner! [ul][li]
  • Tractor, Hey they came out awesome, and everyone had two. I grilled two onions in butter on the stove, when they were nice and brown I added two bottles of Redhook ESB and then dropped in the 6 Thuringer Rostbratwurst for a 20 minute bath. I then…

  • Tractor, Yep they do, I think if you check out the link it has instructions. And thanks for all the help everyone, I will give them a nice beer bath in some Redhook ESB prior to going on the grill. Got the Kraut heating up, and some grilled onion…

  • bobbyb, I made this sauce as one of the choices for a family reunion this past weekend and it was a hit.
  • Car Wash Mike, Thanks again guys. I will let you know how it all turns out.

  • Car Wash Mike, What temp do you guys cook them at, I am worried about drying them out too much. From your photo looks like you cook direct? How long do you marinade them? Thanks guys.

  • Lionel, I have always heard that every butt has its own way of getting to temp. I cook my butts between 225 and 250, and if the cooker is working at those temps, the only butt temp I look for is the final one, for me 195. What happens between the…
