  • Re: Super bowl treat?

    Another vote for @henapple's MPD's.  Quite a change-up from the "normal" ABT's and most eggcellent.
  • Re: First time egging

    Welcome aboard and enjoy the journey.  Great gift for sure. 

    An observation regarding the BGE and table.  You may want to consider an air gap below the BGE in addition to the paver.  Over time table owners have reported scorching of the wood below the paver.

    Looks great; nice meteorite bark!  Don't know your preferences but I'm in the 'slice and eat the point" camp.  The best eats you can have...Regardless, enjoy the banquet!
  • Re: Favorite Side Dishes

    Given all the choices, my favorite would be the pan of chopped potatoes and veggies (the veggie membership varies but always includes onions and garlic) cooked under a spatchcock chix.  The chix does a great job on the flavor profile, independent of seasonings.  YMMV-
  • Re: First overnight low & slow...need reassurance

    Another vote for around 275*F on the calibrated dome thermo.  Should yield at around 1.25-1.5 hrs/lb. If not finished in the mid-AM, then dial it up (300-350*F) to punch it home.  And as mentioned above, you can easily hold it in a prepped el cheapo cooler for 4-6 hours before pulling.  YMMV-
