  • Our local butcher marinates them like this and then you grill them shell on.  Very good.
    in Shrimp? Comment by GGGNAT February 2013
  • If you have a CI grate, I personally think the reverse sear is a huge waist of time.  Don't get me wrong, it will create a great steak but no better than just a straight cook.  I just don't see why I would ever want to spend an hour cooking when I c…
  • Cook went great.  I did 19 pounds and mopped every two hours.  Definitely got the flavor profile I was missing in my last cook.  They hit 190 at around 15 hours and went in the cooler for an hour before pulled.  Cooked around 250 dome with was right…

  • LL all the way.  Takes about a minute to get lump going.  If it takes longer you are either doing something wrong or your LL is defected. Plus people are amazed when they come over.
  • Couscous is the winner.
