    Indirect started at 450 for about 30 minutes, then I scaled it back to about 350 for the remainder.  Lots of rub that is specifically for rib roast.  BBQ Galore, I think.

    That's a great looking cook. Nice job!

    Great attitude Don! I looked up Transverse Myelitis and saw that some recover. Is that a possibility in your case?
    And to Ladeback69

    Some do - almost completely.  Some do, but only limited.  My case was, as my Dr. puts it, a "whopper."  It's possible, and I am always optimistic.  At this point, I am waiting for my spinal cord to either regenerate or compensate.  TM is unpredictable.  Some folks start recovering after 3-5 years.  So, in the meantime - - I cook great food, I drink great wine, and I surround myself with great people! 
  • Paralyzed and still Egging!

    Hi folks.  I was hit with Transverse Myelitis December 2012 and it left me a T4 paraplegic (middle of the chest).  I had lots of concerns and issues to work through, one of them being: how will I manage my XL Egg.  We moved it closer to the back door and then removed the wheels to drop it down about 3-4".  That's low enough so I can now lift the top, remove/replace the grill, and manage the lump inside.  I need help refilling the Egg with lump or if I am doing a low and slow as the placesetter is to large for me to manage.  Otherwise, I am good to go!! 

    We had friends over Saturday night.  The menu consisted of ABTs, filets, and beautiful sockeye salmon.  Steaks were coated with Kent Rathburn steak/chop rub. 

    I grabbed this shot as dinner went on. 


    Note the different cap on top.  I replaced the daisy wheel with this device.  It makes it much easier for me to manage the top venting, I can easily spin it which opens/closes the vents.
