Spreading the love this Valentine’s Day with your EGG? Virginia Willis’ three course menu is perfect for a date night! February is also National Chocolate Lover’s Month, so don’t feel guilty if you’ve been cooking a little more dessert than usual on your EGG. If you’re looking for something a little more savory than chocolate, try some Roasted Chicken Flatbread or Pork Tenderloin with Honey Mustard.

  • Re: One Hour into the first cook and Brisket on the LBGE...Help?

    Does the BGE function without libations?? :)>-  That may be the underlying factor in this cook.  Gotta admit that I believe low&slow cooks are best done with an "analog" mind-set, and the "digital" approach left more to the hot&fast/thermopen cooks.  But just an opinion and we all know what those are worth...
  • Re: Pork butts

    You are well within the FTC window for the wedding based on Eastern time zone.  You can go up into the low 300's but if you need to power thru the stall (where you are) I would resort to foiling them to the finish-line.  (The stall can run from 2-6 hours and there can be the dreaded second stall in the high 180's when it can take 3-4 hours to move into the mid 190's but each butt behaves on its own.)  Better to finish early and FTC then be stressing at the end-of course you could have them delay the wedding :)>- Good eats await-

    Gonna ride along on this thread as the last time I was in the City was 2004-I'm sure there will be eggcellent recommendations.  Hang on to your a$$-the place is an amazing ride! 
  • Re: Newbies Ask for Advise

    @TwoCooks-here's a link to a great intro site for all things ceramic-

    http://www.nakedwhiz.com/ceramic.htm  In the recipe section under pork you will find the Elder Ward posting about setting up your fire for low&slow cooks-very detailed and may be more effort than you are looking for but a good benchmark.

  • Re: typical stall temp?

    And you may hit another semi-stall in the high 180's.  I've seen it take 4+ hours to go from around 188 to 194-this after the typical 160's stall.  Happens to me around 2-30% of pork butt cook.  YMMV-regardless-gonna taste great.
