  • Christmas Turkey

    Decided to grill a turkey for Christmas. I have a medium egg so I bought a small turkey(12.5#). I didn't brine the turkey and used a little olive oil and some Special **** seasoning. I cooked it at 325 and it took about 3 hours to get the breast to 160 and thighs to 180. It was golden brown and very moist. I was happy to have my DigiQ to keep the temperature steady. I am posting pictures because I know with no picture it didn't happen.

  • Re: Wow it is cold!!

    Wow. Now I remember why I moved to Florida. Oh, I need to mention that it will be in the mid 30's at night mid week. I guess I should not have stopped in Florida and gone on to Mexico.

  • Re: SELL NOW?

    When I first got my egg it came with a bag of BGE charcoal. SWMBO really liked the smoke flavor that it gave all the cooks. I bought several bags of Royal Oak charcoal when Walmart had a good sale on it. SWMBO missed the smoke flavor using it. So changing charcoal would probably really work for you if you will not miss the smoke flavor.

  • Butt success

    I started a 6# butt roast yesterday at 1:30pm. I was going to do a overnighter but SWMBO preferred cooking while awake. The butt went into the 170 degree stall and lasted for about 3 hours. It got to 195 about 10:15 and I tested the bone but it didn't wiggle yet. Went to 205 at midnight and it seemed done. I checked with my Thermapen and it also read 205. FTC and went to bed. Up at 6:30 and put in fridge for afternoon meal with company. Pulled and put into foil pan covered on egg for about 45 minutes to get hot. It turned out great and the company really enjoyed it. His SWMBO said thanks a lot. Now she was going to keep hearing about how good the egg cooks. Maybe a future egger in waiting.
