'Tis the season ... so be sure to see our Holiday Entertaining Recipes for some terrific ideas. And, it’s not too early to start thinking about our Country Christmas menu for any of your holiday meals! For something different, how about mixing it up with our Light Southern Meal with Grilled Catfish and Watermelon Salsa! Happy Holidays!
I have yet to run out of lump on a cook. I saw a review that gave the BGE demerits for not having a door to add lump.
Fact is the ceramic mass and fire control allows the BGE to not need the addition of lump on most cooks.
I flip at about 8 hours into cook. I think it helps the bark by letting the bottom dry up. I am sure it is NOT needed and I have let it cook until 195 without touching the grill. It just depends on my mood.
You are only using half your grill without an indirect setup like a platesetter.
I would do ribs as my first indirect, chicken wings, burgers, steaks...all good direct.
I will not cook fish or steaks without my thermapen.
Hi Bill...Yes we do have some abbreviations and lingo. I just ask when I get confused. sometimes BB means baby backs and sometimes BB means boston butts. There are some Jokers you need to watch out for on here so beware!!
