    I've had the pleasure of cooking with @SMITTYtheSMOKER and I can tell you first hand that he knows his way around an egg! These look amazing Smitty, thanks for the post! Were these cooked competition style or something different?

    Cheers -
    Do you remember us pulling that hot fire out of that XL Egg and started over on the fly?  That pork got us a 1st place that day.  Funny how things work out. Are you still back in snow country?
    Haha, oh yeah man; I sure do! That pork was GOOD! I still have my Smoke Patrol t-shirt from that day.

    Yes sir, loving it back here in WI. Glad to have the Egg keeping me warm through the snowy season.

    Guys, if any of you ever have a chance to make it up to the Bay Area and learn a thing or two from Smitty DO IT! You will NOT regret it!

    @Darby_Crenshaw That is a beauty man, cheers! Love the minute repeater complication, one of my absolute favorites!
  • Re: OT - Activity Bands/Watches

    I recently earned an Apple watch sport as part of a sales award and I like it quite a bit more than I expected to. I still wear my Montblanc Nicholas Rieussec (see below) on the other wrist because I just like it better, but that bizarre system seems to work pretty well. The primary reason i still wear the Apple watch is because of the activity/fitness features.

    @Darby_Crenshaw I'd love to see a picture of the watch you described above. I sounds awesome!

    If they tasted muddy, they were not properly washed and prepped. They should be washed at a minimum of 3 times in clear, cool, belly water.  Preferably until the water runs clean. If washed until they run clear, there is no way that they can taste muddy my friend.  
    Yeah, that's sort of what I thought might be the case. I need to find my way down to the part of the world where folks know how to do these things correctly, not just as a novelty. It's just one of the best LOOKING meals I ever see.
  • New use for leftover pulled pork

    Hello All,
    Like many of us I often smoke more meat on the Egg that can reasonably be eaten in a single meal. That means I often have leftovers on my hands and am always looking for good ways to utilize them. Today I stumbled across a winner and wanted to share it with you all.

    I made a pot of lentils with leftover pulled pork and the two complimented one another beautifully. It's not the prettiest dish in the world, but it SURE tastes great. I'm not a measurements and recipes sort of guy, I more cook by eye but here's the gist of what I did:

    Chop onions, mushrooms, carrots, and sun dried tomatoes. Brown lightly in avocado oil with salt, pepper, oregano, paprika, and granulated garlic. Add in lentils and stir, then pour in a box of chicken stock. Add water until lentils are covered by an inch or so. Bring to a boil and allow the lentils to soak up much of the water (~30-45 minutes). Once the water level drops to the top of the lentils add in the pulled pork and about another 1.5 cups water and return to boil. After another ~20 minutes the remaining water will have thickened to a nice sauce consistency and the lentils should be quite tender without completely falling apart.

    The pork helps make the whole thing very filling and just a bit smoky. Adding it in late in the process but not AFTER the cooking means it retains a bit of texture but also imparts it's flavor nicely. I like it served just the way it is in a bowl with a little grated Parmesan cheese and some buttered sourdough toast. Give it a try some time and let me know what you think!

    Cheers -
