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: Overnight pork shoulder help

    And that's good to know about the old recommendations versus the newer.. So it's best not to be in the middle of the range for long then?

    I really like the reverse sear method for my burgers.. Get the Egg around 250 - 300 and let the burgers cook indirectly (setup is a cast iron grate on bottom, platesetter next and then stock grate on top).. They cook slower than normal in this phase.  When the burgers are within about 10 - 15 degrees of being done, take them burgers off to rest for about 20 minutes.  Remove the stock grate and platesetter and jack the temp up to 600+ degrees.  Throw them on the cast iron grate for 1 minute on each side.  Best burgers I've ever done.

    As you can see, there's more than one way to fix a great burger..

    Best words of wisdom, or even word of wisdom, I can give is "patience"..
  • Re: Brisket and Butt at the same time. Thoughts?

    Are you wanting them to finish around the same time?  Are they the same size?  Maybe I'm offbase, but I would probably put the larger piece on top since higher in the dome is hotter.. But a butt is alot more forgiving than a brisket, so you have to take that into account as well.

    It has bothered me for some time that the design of the BGE allows for the ceramic cap to fall crashing to the ground if one is not careful when opening the egg. If I'm not the doofus to forget to hold the cap in place when opening the egg, I'm sure one of my guests would be.

    While at Costco this past weekend, I noticed their kamado cooker (the Vision?) has clips on the inner side of the cap to keep it in place. After pondering for the last few days, it dawned on me. I started with that great tool and the basis for many bbq mods - the lowly wire hanger which my dry cleaner puts my shirts on. 

    Three bends later, this is what I had:

    Works great as is. Will make one for the small egg as well. Next step is to get some steel rod from HD and put my formidable bending skills to use :) 
    Being from South MS, land of many rednecks, I can appreciate this.. Well done sir.
