It’s time to kick back, relax and enjoy the aromas of fresh smoked meat as we sail towards summer. Not sure what to smoke? Try Down & Dizzy Pork Shoulder or Smoked Spanish Chicken. Now that Spring is in the air, it's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

  • Italian Beef Recipe?

    JRWhitee said:
    I have made the amazingribs one before on the egg, it is very peppery and is much better when using "better than bullion" paste instead of bullion cubes. 
    I ended up doing this recipe today and it was great!  Added a little garlic powder to the "gravy" and it was out of this world.  Best Italian sandwich I have ever had.  Thanks for the reference.
  • brisket going on tonight..

    I did a brisky this weekend and got talked out of the Burnt Ends !
    Up until this brisket ( this was the 5th one i have cooked ) I never understood how you could eat brisket without sauce.

    My recommendation is this ( for what its worth )

    Wait until its done . If its amazing and perfect dont ruin it  by making the Burnt Ends .

    If its dry and tough  than make them .

    Agreed! The point is the best part of the packer.
  • OT: Favorite Fast Food Place

    KennyLee said:

    I would characterize any place that has a drive through as fast food.  Given that, I like Whataburger and Sonic.  Wasn't crazy about In-n-Out at first, but it has grown on me after having a few burgers from there.  Haven't tried Five Guys yet and do like Chipotle as others have mentioned, just don't think of that as fast food.

    Five Guys is awesome!  Pricey but well worth it.
  • IQ110 Rocks

    I did a 12 pound pork butt overnight and slept like a baby.  The Pitmaster 110 kept the XL at 275 grid temp without a problem.  What amazes me is that this 12 pound butt took over 10 hours to get "probe tender".

    The other two items in the picture I also could not do without:

    1.  The Maverick ET732 monitors meat temp for me without requiring me to go outside to check it.  Love it!
    2.  The Thermapen is great for quick checks during grilling.  Helps me get individual pieces to the right temp.

    If you have doubts about getting a temp controller for your egg, I suggest you get one now!  The peace of mind with long cooks is well worth the money.
  • Pizza stone opinion

    Baking Steel.  It can be used for more than just pizza and it should never need to be replaced.
