    the Big Green Egg makes you a ROCKSTAR.  A brisket made on the Big Green Egg makes you an UBER ROCKSTAR

    Enjoy it!

  • Re: Monday... Guinness Brats & Kraut

    Kraut and Brats (German) with Guiness (Irish)?  Yeah Buddy, reminds me of one of the best lines from the GODFATHER when Tom Hagen informs Mr. Woltz that he's not Italian (when Duvall goes there to 'make him an offer he can't refuse' to get Johnny Fontaine that part in the new war picture he's filming) but that he's  German-Irish:   Woltz, " Well let me tell you something my Kraut-Mick friend..."


  • Re: Woo2 or Tiered Rack??


    I would never have believed it until I saw it.  a buddy told me four shoulders in a LG was easy with the spider, stone, adj rig and rig extender setup with minimal advance planning. plus, the LG BGE uses much less fuel than XL

    I got the same setup for the XL-(see attached pic) but no rig extender for XL exists so I have two levels in the XL with the spider, stone, adj rig and two oval racks- I recently did two levels of 17 lb each  whole packer briskets and the results were better than I thought they'd be and I had high expectations.  I think four shoulders on each level (yes, they'd be jammed in there) would work because the basement level can be lowered an inch or so and if you pinch aluminum catch pans so theye squeeze down a little but would work- but I 've not had a need to do 8 shoulders yet. I probably will at some point though this football season!

    It just cannot be emphasized enough how convenient and easy it is to set the BGE up with fuel, a guru and the meat and then you can leave it alone overnight.  you're not babysitting the food and fire and sucking in soot all night on a long time cook so you can actually enjoy the food when it's done.  I previously had  a pitts and spits 24x36 smoker which is an awesome cooker bit got rid of it a few months after I got the XL BGE because I simply didn't use it anymore.

  • Whole Briskets (2) on Adj Rig Setup

    The results of a 15 hour cook (12 lbs each @235) and no foil wrap were nothing short of spectacular.  The adj rig setup knocks out two full briskets quite easily.  The BBQ Guru helped maintain the even temperature and these slabs were made for a Labor Day party at a friend's house and well, all of the meat got eaten like a fresh kill of an impala on the savannah.


    I did put some sweet beer in the drip pan.  dry rub was salt and pepper.  mighty tasty

     Does it come with a free shirt and fire wires?
    Only if you buy it from our resident Clive Clavin.

    So, Cliffie, who do you think will win the next election?"  CC: "You guys have it all wrong, see, if you go back through history, and take the numeric value of each letter in each president's last name, you'll find that it's equally divisible in the year in which they were first elected. By my calculations, our next president has to be named, Yellnick McGwawa."
