  • Re: Beef Ribs - Low & Slow on the small BGE

    @hapster - that's what I'm afraid of.  Thinking of backing off the set temp to a "holding" temp and see what comes of it.  Was only $15 so not a huge loss, but I've been craving some
  • Re: Dinner tonite?

    How about something not egged...  Maybe she wants a night off. 6 things in 10 days might be adding up when 10 days ago you didn't have an egg.

    What were you cooking before the egg that she really liked?
  • Re: Anyone's wife taking a little bit to warm up to smokey taste?

    As everyone else said - get a different lump - Royal Oak (and BGE brand) are two of the smokiest you will find.  Make sure you burn it until it is clean - I switched to a weed burner to light and I think that helped too.  I always load up heavy so the next couple fires are on lump that has had extra time to off gas the VOCs. 

    You said pork tenderloin, but was it marinated/sauced/dripping on the coals?  I find fattier cooks (and even drippings can make nasty smoke so I cook indirect or raised direct a fair share.

  • Re: 45 Day Dry Aged Ribeye

    @tgs2401 - You need enough surface to let it crust and dry out... so you can trim it back and have the goodness inside.  If you use a single steak you basically would be trimming most of it away.  Also, full roasts, and sub-primals generally sell for less $/lb than single steaks so it is not as painful with the trimming and moisture loss. 

    At minimum you could try with a rib roast - with a good fat cap. Even then expect to lose a certain amount due to trimming.

    If you look at the pieces in the case shown above you can see all of them have a continuous fat cap.  That is what the butcher trims off anyway to have a nice presentable steak or roast.  You want to get the meat at this stage (before trimming) and raising the per lb price.
  • Re: 10 Commandments of BBQ

     I think this Teespring thing is pretty cool.  Anyone can set up a campaign, create a tee shirt and try and sell it to people interested in the same thing...

    That is the first time I've ever seen anything like this on the egghead forum.

    While I like this design (on a gray shirt) I agree the lack of something on the front is so-so and with cost over $35 I will pass on this design.
