  • Cold weather cook

    It's cold even here at the beach so decided to warm stuff up a bit.  Put an 8.8 lb picnic on yesterday at 5 pm and let it go at about 225 until 10:45 a.m. today. Nice how the egg held temps even with weather in the 20s and some winds.  Pulled pork turned out beautifully moist and tasty, lousy yield on this cut of meat compared to a butt but really nice flavor and tenderness.  Then threw some more Royal Oak and hickory on the fire and cooked up a big batch of brisket chili. Had 5 lbs of brisket scraps in the freezer from previous cooks. Hand chopped brisket, onions, peppers, broth from previous BGE carcasses and a bunch of spices in the big Dutch oven for 4-5 hours at around 300-350.  Looks like a good way to beat the cold.
  • Re: Lump

    You'll find complete reviews of lump here and throughout this forum. For what it's worth, I've been using Royal Oak from WalMart and find it excellent and much cheaper than the BGE brand.  I think somewhere on the forum I saw that they were made by the same people.

    First try at posting photos.  My two grill guards...Maggie 7 month old great dane, Nellie 12 year old bloodhound.  Both weigh 100 lbs.
  • Re: OT - Pool owners

    Careful on the decking.  I spent almost as much for the deck as I did for the pool.  Went with the GAF synthetic product that was supposed to look like wood but eliminate maintenance.  The deck guys did a fabulous job with keeping the contour of the pool all around and without splicing any of the boards.  Turned out absolutely beautiful and all the GAF factory reps were in my yard for weeks taking pictures and showing it off.....THEN it went to hell in a hand basket.  The stuff started curling up, kept getting moldy looking like untreated wood would after years.  it required cleaning/washing every few weeks.  Curled up so bad it was ripping out all the fasteners.  Couldn't get GAF to do anything about it and they quickly pulled off all the pictures they were bragging about before.  Their excuse was that it was "installed" wrong, too close to the ground.  I believe they said it had to be at least 18 inches off the ground or something.  Ended up tearing up the whole thing within a year and replacing with treated lumber.  Could have put down teak for cheaper than that stuff.  I have nightmare pictures from start to finish if you are considering that product.  Pool itself is awesome, saltwater, never have to do anything to it, no chlorine smell, skin feels better after you're in it.
