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: Mini-Max

    Caliking is guessing north of $500...that seems high.

    Isn't this between the mini and small? Actually SMALLER then the small.

    You may actually be right...but I would just get a joe jr for a second ceramic cooker if that is the case.

  • Re: Large egg, 10 people, 10 steaks

    Two Words:
    sous vide

    Freezer - un seasoned for about 30 minutes so the edges don't pinch when you seal the steak. Vacuum seal each steak. Into the sous vide for 2-3 hours at 130. Get the egg ready for searing around the time you want to serve. Pat each steak dry as you remove from bag and season with salt and pepper (or with your seasoning of choice) and sear for 45 seconds or so each side.

    Perfect every time.

  • Re: Re: Counting Calories...

    doing this now:

    myfitnesspal on my android. killer app. lots of recipes from online recipe directories like skinnytaste, allrecipes, etc. stupid simple to scan barcodes. I have yet to find a food that was not in the app.

    BodyMedia armband. I wear it on my upper arm and it keep track of my movement and calories burned.

    BodyMedia info shows up in myfitness pal and visa versa.

    6.2 lbs lost week one.

    I lost 40+ pounds over 4 months this way a couple years back and kept it off. Tackling my last 30 the next 4 months.

    100% helps to be doing the routine with the wife.

    I don't how about asking a grown man, "How much would you charge for a rim job?"

  • Re: What is the best way to freeze a Boston Butt after it has been cooked?

    I pull it.
    Measure into 1 pound portions (Four 3 oz sandwiches for the four of us)
    Vacuum seal it.

    When we want to eat it, simply drop a bag in the sous vide at about 135 degrees. Whenever we are ready to eat....pull bag out and heat to desired temp in microwave.

    I do not add bbq sauce to the bags before I seal and freeze them. I may want to use the pulled pork for something other then sandwiches and I want to be able to add the flavor I want at the time I use it. Nachos, pizza, flatbread, whatever.
