Greetings friends!

Did this one with a local rub raised direct pecan chips to 165* at ~400* grate. Amazing.

Gotten pretty good at roasting the Brussels. Love them.

Also - BGE high heat gasket worked like a charm. Not a leak to be seen and VERY sensitive now to temp control.

I should do this cook more often... Thanks for looking!

  • Boy that looks really good. Nicely done!!  Watch the gasket if you are going to cook over 550-600.  I melted mine at about 675 the other day, but it did last nearly 8 months which is longer then I can say the original black one did on my large.
    I raise my kids, cook and golf.  When work gets in the way I'm pissed, I'm pissed off 48 weeks a year.

    Nice. Just a suggestion; raise it to the top grate next time to catch more of the dome action.

  • That looks pretty fantastic.  I made a spatchcock myself last night.  Very similar method to yours.  Only difference is that I put mine higher in the dome.  In the past, I didn't raise the chicken up in the dome.  The skin came out way crispier with it raised.  Definitely a recommended switch.  Still, yours looks darn near perfect, so maybe just keep doing what you're doing!

  • Trying a turkey today on the raised tier. Thanks gang. Ill post as that comes out.

    Poultry is unbelievably moist on the BGE.
