It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

  • Re: Okay Floridians

    If you have questions about the Orlando area and getting from "here to there" my email is joebensara@aol.com. I'm no tour guide, but I'm more than happy to offer an opinion or suggestion.

    Cheers,

    We live in Orlando and there are a couple of good bbq places around. On Maguire Road in Ocoee, there's a place called Red Eye Barbecue. The owner started out with a very popular food truck and went from there. He's also an Egger. In Winter Garden, there's Harry and Larry's.  It usually wins the annual newspaper "best bbq" award, but we prefer Red Eye. Johnny Rivers Smokehouse and Barbecue is also in Winter Garden. I had brisket from there at a catered party. It was pretty darned good, but I can't vouch for anything else. All three of these are on the Disney side of town, sort of. You can check out their websites online.
    And people make mock, but Gatorland in Kissimmee is a fun way to spend a few hours.  I highly recommend DeLeon Springs State Park in Deland. There's cold springs for swimming, guided tour boats on the St. John's River, hiking, and best of all...the old millhouse restaurant. All you can eat pancakes (stoneground buckwheat and regular)  that you make yourself on a griddle table. It's been a family favorite for years and years. Anyway, that should get you started.

  • Re: No Smoked Turkey For Me!

    For this exact reason, we're roasting two 10 lb. turkeys. One traditional with stuffing in the oven.  The other, spatchcocked on the Egg. Different, delicious leftovers for everyone.
