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: OT - Pappy Van Winkle SOLD OUT :(

    I like bourbon. That being said, any booze you have to be on a list to get, keep calling somebody to check its availability and probably mortgage the house when it finally is available is not worth it. Gimme some Woodford or Makers and I'll be happy. Its plentiful, reasonably priced and very good.
    A few years ago I bought a bottle of Pappy's 20 year old. Hard to get even then. Was it good? Yes. Would I buy another @ $200 a bottle? No.

    Too many other really nice bourbons that are very good and obtainable.

  • Re: Mini withdrawal...

    @King of Calcutta - you have kids right?  The Mini is perfect for empty nesters like we (wife and I) are but if you are cooking for 3+ the Mini is not going to always work. Don't worry.. be happy. Look forward to seeing you in Salado or even before.

    PS: keep doing your wonderful work for children, Doc

  • Re: Trader Joes Santa Maria Tri Tip

    @Tuttle871 Picked up a Tri-Tip from Trader Joe's this morning. Thanks for providing me with a good source for tri-tips. I will be using red oak and love serving it with salsa and pinquito beans like they do in California. Plus maybe a nice Zin.

  • Re: Pollo ala Plancha

    Great looking cook. It appears you made some slits in the chicken. Great way to get marinade into the meat in short order.

  • Re: Brisket Saved By SWMBO

    A controller such as a DigiQ II, will do wonders for your overnight low and slow cooks. Not cheap but really takes the mental pressure off those type of cooks. If anything, you might even get an upward creep in the temperature once all of the charcoal and wood is ignited hours after you start.

    On the other hand, I am now cooking at higher temps with no larger than 10 lb. briskets and smoke the during the day. The Travis Method is good for speeding up cooks also.
