  • Re: Medium or Mini to go with my Large? Or wait for another large...

    How does one share accessories at the same time? I have two larges and the adjustable rig only works in one of them at a time. 

    I own two larges, a mini, XL, MM, and a medium. If I could only have two, it would be a XL and a medium. And the medium does most of the work by far. Love the medium. 
    Dude, buy two AR's

  • Re: OT - Gatesville, TX - Cow House Creek

    Used to fish on the cow house when a kid (army brat).
    Used to hunt squirrels on the cow house as a kid.
    Had a customer run a Corolla off into the cow house about 25 years ago to see if it would float (it did not for very long).
    The cow house of Fort Hood runs along the impact area (lots of unexploded bombs / and artillery. 
    Damn, lots of crap I had not thought of in lots of years.

    Spatchcocked Turkey and Chicken on the Big Green Egg
    (you cut out the backbone and cook opened)
    I like a 11/12 lb bird. If I need lots of turkey I just cook a couple ( 1 & 1/2  hr cook app)
    Chicken 3 to 3.75lb bird or birds. Under an hour cook. 
    Or, just add a package of legs extra. 
    I do not brine the turkey or Chicken. 
    If time I like to leave uncovered in the fridge overnight (no problem if no time) 
    I cook "direct" @ 400/425 on a raised grill "skin side up" and never turn over.
    I will use a coffee rub. Use what you like.
    NOTE PLEASE (A LOT OF SMOKE IS NOT YOU FRIEND)
    I use about a single handfull of mixed chips: Cherry & Pecan. 
    Cook Turkey to temp (not time) breast @ 155/160 and thigh @ 165.
    Cook Chicken to temp breast 160.
    Rest both 10 mins.

     
    Coffee Rub (turkey, chicken, beef & pork)
    Equal part: Instant Expresso Ground coffee..
    Equal part: Brown Sugar..
    ½ part: Black Pepper..
    ½ part: Kosher Salt..
    ½ part: Garlic Powder..
    ¾ part: Ancho Chili Powder..
      Don't worry on exact, just close on measurement. I used to use turbinado sugar but we like with brown better. This is pulled from MollyShark, Hungry Man, & Richard In Fl then tweaked. I find the ancho chili powder is far less expensive in the bulk spice area than the bottled area ( have used both light or dark version). I make it starting with a half cup Instant Expresso Ground coffee and work from there as it seems to store well if sealed.
