  • denise, The correct address is:[p]http://www.bigtsbge.blogspot.com[p]I'll check to see if I posted it wrong. Sorry. [ul][li]Big T's Big Green Egg Recipe Blog[/ul]
  • Metalhead,[p]We had a 7 course gourmet dinner at a plantation home on the Ms. river near baton Rouge Saturday night (http://www.houmashouse.com - if you ever get the chance, don't pass it up!). The first course was a scallop that had been sliced in…
  • RastaEGG, Wow, just when you think you've seen it all. I grew up on the Texas gulf coast; NO ONE ever ate mullet - it was strictly used as a bait fish to catch eating fish.[p]Now, your post and all the replies have me second guessing that paradigm…
  • Grandpas Grub, I dunno about the cooking wine you had; but the one and only time I bought cooking wine - I opened and tasted it - then immediately poured it down the drain and tossed the bottle; never again. It was more like salt water with a bit…
  • Eggs Ackley, I have a LBGE, and use an inverted plate setter with a large aluminum roasting pan sitting on it; porcelan grill on top of that. BGE Rib rack on the grill. I cut the baby back racks exactly in half; this means I can do three racks at…
  • slyrye,[p]I find the cook time is closely related to the amount of fat on the brisket. If it is "packer trimmed", it will take less time; if untrimmed, much longer. I always have a hard time getting the timing just perfect - so I usually tend to s…
  • EagerEgger,[p]I have made this same mistake before. No worries; you can leave it wrapped in foil in the cooler (might add some towels to the wrap) until noon or 1pm (4 to 5 hours). What I do at that point is go ahead and slice it up into a pan, sa…
  • Beast,[p]I agree with some of the others; use chunks in BGE, and do not soak. Soaking results in incomplete combustion of the wood until it dries out. The incomplete combustion results in thick white smoke. These particles of smoke deposit on you…
  • stike,[p]Yes, they were indirect wxcept for the last part when I added some sauce. I used a pot bottom. I agree with the pull from the bone clean with a little tug. That is what I meant by fall off.
  • fishlessman,[p]Thanks, I do not remember what side I had down. I added a little room temp apple juice.[p]Anthony
  • fishlessman,[p]Thank for the input.[p]I am looking for fall off the bone, very little if any crust (maybe this is bark). Moist all the way through. In all cases I just went by time, I did not use any methods you listed to check doneness. I would …
  • TomCPA,[p]Aluminum has one of the highest thermal conductivities of anything you could put in the egg. Thick or thin, it's going to radiate heat like crazy. You probably did benefit from more even distribution of heat though, as it would tend to t…
  • Well, I had to leave before any of these great replies arrived. in the absence, I opted to go with Stike's second suggestion... lower the egg temp and let it ride. They were already wrapped in foil. Got home a few minutes ago; everything was sitt…
  • Shelby,[p]May I recommend a BBQ Guru Competitor? I have no affiliation with them other than being an extremely satisfied user.[p]Here's my latest adventure with it: I filled my large egg with 12 lbs of Oak lump, 4 chunks of Hickory, 2 chunks of M…
    in Butt question Comment by Tony July 2007
  • TRex,[p]Hear, here! I had a NuTemp wireless (3-channel) to help me "babysit" my first low & slow last weekend. I put 2 probes in to back up the grid probe (one for high temp alarm, the other for low temp alarm, and the 3rd one to back up the G…
  • Pharmeggist,[p]If patterns hold, should about 10 days or so... lol.[p]TD
  • Good Eats,[p]Two weeks plus one day. However, that has resulted in about 10 meals! Love the thing; can't get enough... want some more![p]Wish I'da bought it 5 years ago when I shyed away on price combined with low confidence in it's capabilities. …
  • Don't Egg me on,[p]Sears had their Craftsman 2 gallon wet/dry shop vac on sale this past weekend for $15 (reg is $30). It reaches the back of a large Egg through the inlet damper, no problem. [p]I have used it twice (I've been cooking ALLOT, lol) …
  • jackbythesea,[p]I live for justifications like this to upsize! Go for it, man![p]TD
  • bgefan,[p]No kiddng, man. I've noticed the more I use mine, the the looser they get![p]TD
  • Bingo! We have a winner![p]TD
  • RRP,[p]Gotta hand it to you, dude... nothing gets by! ; )[p]TD
    in New Egg! Comment by Tony June 2007
  • TNW & Fatdog,[p]What can I say? Y'all got me![p]TD
  • Smokin' Todd, My hat's off to Kevin; all I did was listen, recall later and follow. He's a great cook.[p]I imagine these will go over big at the next "friends over backyard cookout"; I've been around for 45 years and never thought of such. A bit …
  • Keith W.,[p]I am new to the Egg also; have T-Rex'ed ribeyes twice thus far with similar results. As for flashbacks; I don't worry about it; elbow high grilling glove on the left hand, tongs in the right, and remembering to "burp" the Egg each time …
  • stike, Now that you've "verbalized" it; it occurred to me that this happens to me all of the time, already. I suppose I am just more picky than most people when it comes to the food I have cooked. But when we eat other places, I am happy as a …

  • stike, Thanks, and me thinks you're right; the family thought it was wonderful... nothing but compliments. But then, it is father's day; would they have dare criticized it, knowing how much time was put in by dear old dad? lol...[p]TD
  • Caveman Smoker,[p]Looks great! [p]How do you get the little camera icon to show up next to the post? I posted some further down (my first to the forum); but the post did get the littel icon...[p]TD
  • AnnaG, Can't eat ribs? Shoot me now! lol...[p]Thanks for the help with the link to instructions, and the compliment! The forum needs to look out over the next few days; I have my first week with the Egg photos to post - but not until after dinner…
  • AnnaG, Well, if I did it all right, here they are![p]Foil Opening: [p]Close-up in Foil: [p]Another in foil: [p]Back on the Egg: [p]Close-up on the Egg: [p]Now - off to retrive them for a bit of rest before the feast!![p]Thanks AnnaG![p]TD
