  • Re: Large egg or extra large egg that is the question.

    I started with a large and added a mini max a few years later.  Knowing what I know now, I would go with XL and add a medium later.  To me, this would be the most versatile combo.  I personally have other smokers to use for high capacity cooks but if I didnt, the Large would cut me short lots of times even with the CGS adjustable rig and extender.  It all depends on the number of people you cook for and you'll certainly learn to make the best of whichever size you happen to have and you'll always want more.

    Obviously you are smoking this to temp but approximately how long do you smoke these? Similar to ribs?
    nowhere near as long as ribs.  I smoke mine to about 140/145 degrees IT.  Usually takes around 1-2 hours at 275

  • PSA: Its Rack of Pork Time!

    Check your local wholesale clubs, its that time of year!  Racks of Pork back in stock at my local Sam's Club.  I grabbed several for holiday cooking but decided I couldn't wait and smoked one today.   If you have never had one of these, do yourself a favor and pick one up.  
  • Re: Sunday Beef Ribs (Lots of Pics)

    @shucker, those look fantastic. 2 questions:
    Where did you get that fine looking rack of ribs?
    Where do you get your Rockwood?

    I go to the eastern part of the state quite frequently and am always looking for supply sources. 

    BTW, I have a son who's a junior at ECU. GO PIRATES! Aargh!
    I had to smuggle these ribs across the border from VA.  They came from Central Meats in Chesapeake which is only about 45 minutes from my house.  If anyone is nearby, its a great butcher shop.  They keep Prime-grade whole packer briskets in stock and they have great steaks as well as pork and chicken products.  They also have a great selection of rubs and sauces.    

    I order Rockwood from Firecraft 5 bags at a time for free shipping.  The size of the pieces is always a wildcard depending on how FedEx decides to handle the package but I havent found a lump that compares in quality anywhere local for pickup. 

    Congrats on your son's decision for higher education.  Its a great school and a lot of fun.  Too bad football hasn't been up to par this season, but I guess there's always next year.
