Pig Shots on the Grid Extender

R2Egg2QR2Egg2Q Posts: 1,965
We had a birthday potluck at work which gave me an opportunity to try out my Grid Extender set up with a 16.5" stainless grid from CGS on top of my PS Woo 2 in the LBGE. I put together 48 pig shots to split up on the grids:

I had a little extra bacon and a little extra brown sugar/rub mix so I fillled the open space with some pig candy: Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos

About 80-85 minutes later the pig shots were done (and the pig candy consumed by the cook): Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos

The pig shots disappeared quickly at work.

The 16.5" grid fit great without the grid extender spacer but came in contact with the dome when I put the spacer on. A little tight for my liking with the spacer. Quality of the grid is great but I didn't get a chance to put any significant weight on it to test the set up for sagging.

Thx for looking!

    Niiiiiiiice. Jalapeños in cream cheese for the filling? Like the pig candy.

    Great looking cook. I also use the whole set up on top of my Woo3. I went with a med grid on top of a 18"BGE grid and going without the spacer.

    I use hot diced green chiles which are not as hot as jalapeños. I try not to make them too hot for my co-workers. 4-cheese mexican blend was also mixed with the cream cheese.

    Great idea with the cheese. I used a very spicy salsa on mine last week. Kept me from eating everything. What did you use for the base? I used smoked sausage.

    Thanks Hap! Any contact between the dome and med grid if you use the spacer?

    I used polska kielbasa (made with beef & pork) for the base.

    Not that I can see. Now, the first cook I did was with a bunch of ribs, the tips of the top rack brushed the dome a little. Once they shrunk up a bit, it wasn't an issue.

    Was this an indirect cook? What temp did you cook them at? They look great.

    Thx! Yes, an indirect cook. Temps were in the 280-300 range.

    Holy crap those look good. I've heard of pick shots over and over on this forum since I've joined but never knew what they really were. Your post with the great pictures forced me to go look up the recipe.
