  • Re: Large Egg for sale

    Did my first turkey today....The best advice I saw on the board was "cook to temp, not time."  I had a 21 lb. bird and it was done in 3.5 hours.  The cheat sheet said 6+ hours but everyone said check it at 3....The breast meat was slightly overcooked but no ruined by any means.  I honestly think the smokiness saved it!  I appreciate everyone's advice as I can now add turkey to the repertoire.

    +1 on the Raging River!  That stuff is amazing!  I use a cedar plank but I think plenty of flavor is delivered by the BGE, the plank just creates indirect heat.  Salt/Pepper and olive oil and it always comes out perfect!

    Hello Everyone,

    As a resident newbie, I'm excited that I just purchased tickets.  Going to bring the family down and go camping for the first time with children.  Looking forward to this!!!

  • Boston Butt

    Hello everyone!  

    This is Boston Butt #1 for me.  It was about 5.5 lbs.  I want to thank everyone for the advice on many of the posts in this forum.  Building the proper fire was critical.  I initially had the egg temp up to about 255 or so but after almost closing everything, I got her down to about 220 or so.  I love to cook on this thing!  I used Jack Daniels rub but I want to come up with my own the next time.  It seemed a little too salty.  I went 9 hours and had to pull her before the family killed me.  That part was on me and not the egg.  The butt wasn't dry and everyone loved it.  The last 30 or so I went up to 300ish.  I was in the stall for a while and didn't make any changes, just let it roll through it.  I needed another hour to get to 190 but it was 180 when I took it off.  I let it rest for about 30 and then we cut into it.  I went with Hickory chunk right on top and the smoke flavor definitely came through.  Sorry this is a rambling mess but I'm very excited for first one.

    Those things look amazing!  I have some chops tonight.  If there anywhere near that, I'll be happy!
