  • Smoke your butts. Ain't that hard without the gizmos. It'll be time to smoke more when you get your stoker.
  • So, what does an old retired chicken say? Cheep! Cheep! :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:
  • This is very similar to another post awhile back. The short answer is that if you have one egg and 80 people coming, DON'T cook chicken. Pulled pork can be prepared with sides to feed that many. Chicken takes 40-45 minutes per load. Holding chic…
  • two butts and sides everyone will go home happy
  • Someone asks about your Emergency Preparedness Kit and all you have in it is lump and its sitting next to your egg.
  • someone behind you mentions BBQ and you get whiplash turning around.
  • You take pictures of your the shopping your trunk your shed... under your bed.
  • I used to raise meat rabbits and these are two very useful videos. This may very well be more work than you are willing to do but having videos is very helpful. If you can part a chicken you can watch these videos. If that turns you off skip th…
  • For what its worth I googled edible mushrooms and clicked "images" and found nothing that looked similar. Then I googled poisonous mushrooms and immediately found one that looked like these and the description fits your habitat. When in doubt--don…
  • Here, Here, I second that motion. Smoked Pork and a pan of beans under--that's the beginning of a FINE 4th.
  • I have a large and a family of five. I have no trouble cooking enough food for us. I have smoked 4 pork butts at once and served 35 men with pulled pork and sides and still had 2 shoulders to take home. Obviously the sides were not all done on th…
  • Welcome to the forum. Just count it as your "ignitiation" :laugh:
  • RC, Seems I recall a thread about this some time ago. If I remember correctly consensus was it is not spoiled but needs to be rinsed and dried and prepared as usual. The smell is apparently from the cryovac packaging.
  • Its better NOT to look into the weedburner :laugh: It is what I use and would never go back.
  • Vanzo, Pulled pork is my favorite cook. I had never prepared it before getting my egg. First one took 19 hours since I had some fire issues but tasted great right out of the gate. I slather mustard and rub one layer and like fishlessman put it o…
  • So its kinda like Cracker Jack with a prize in it? :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:
  • If they catch you taking pics they might also wonder about the bulging sides of the shed where you store your lump not to mention the ten extra bags under the bed in the spare bedroom. :laugh:
  • Manfred, I would be honored to help you. I am all about trying to get people to try new stuff like bread baking, dutch oven cookery and now eggs. Just give a shout.
  • Manfred-- I think you have made a wise decision. Knowing when to say no is a valuable skill many of us learn late(r). I worried that I was being a wet blanket but the more I thought about it the more worried I got. You are proposing three danger f…
  • Hey, Manfred, I would stick close to Nibble's chart. That said, unless you have multiple eggs and multiple levels at your disposal and real hands on experience this is beyond the weekend egger, IMO. Chicken, enough to feed 150 people, served at sa…
  • Manfred-- it would help if you define your terms. A "big group of peopl" is how many? Groups, even big groups, come in different sizes. Also it would help to know what your sides are. Is this a green salad that can be made ahead or while the chi…
  • Its a brand of teriyaki sauce that you can buy in bulk at Costco
  • Whatcha need?
  • Freedonia, Welcome to the forum and a brand new barbeque experience. By the end of the weekend I predict your eyes will have rolled back into your head more than once. The egg is a great tool for ANY outdoor cooking whether grilling hamburgers or…

  • Brisket Bob, On a large BGE I smoked 4 shoulders for 35 and had two untouched pork butts to take home. I also served potato salad, coleslaw and beans. I served the pulled pork on cheap white burger buns. I made Elder Ward's Piedmont sauce and ser…
  • It MY mind I should have let it go as an 'electrician thing' because even after the explanation I feel none the wiser. It IS, however, a good looking piece of meat and delectable sandwich. Good job!
  • Sriracha sauced wings. I tried this and liked it enough to do it again the very next time I do wings. It is not as hot as it sounds but does have a good bite.…
  • This is a great post. If you could just remind me again where I send the hundred bucks.
  • Thanks, Molly, It feels good to have a handle of this cook. It has always been an easy one but now I enjoy it in peace. I would never try to convince you of anything against your purist' heart. Thanks for the comment it is good to hear from y…
  • Julie, Thanks for the comment. I notice you, too, are self employed. Sometimes that affords a respite from the fast paced world and a day to slow down shows up mid week. I treasure those times and this one was put to good use. May we all use …
