  • Re: XL @ Sams

    The XL is infamous for cracked bases.  I am on my third base in 5 years.  Glad I have a warranty!
  • Re: yup...another 50 hour Georgia Red Wing meal!

    If I can't find the Texas Pete's sauce, would regular Frank's sauce work for the recipe?
  • Re: Low and slow pork shoulder

    Pork shoulders are the easiest cook.  No need for low and slow either.  275 degrees is fine.  I don't think that it will take as long as you think.  I have been doing 9 pounders and they have been done in less than 10 hours.

    Check out the Chris Lilly pork butt recipe that can be found on the web.  There is an injection of apple juice and a few other spices.  May not be needed but it really comes out great!
  • Re: Baby Backs on BGE - cant get it right

    I agree with trying to avoid the brown sugar.  It burns them badly, even going indirect.

    I always seem to get ribs right.  Don't know why, but BB's seem to be my can't miss cook.  I do them at 275 indirect for three hours or so.  About the last hour, I wrap them in foil with a concoction of honey, margarine, and BBQ sauce.  Cook them till they pass the toothpick test.  Take them off and rest them for 20 minutes or so.

    Don't give up on them.  You will get them right!
  • Re: Chips vs. Chunks?

    Chips burn up too quickly.  Use chunks and there is no need to soak them in water.
