    I used Stubbs Texas Butter tonight and it turned out great. I cooked up two  breasts and topped with cheddar cheese. Came out perfect. 5th cook on the egg. I continue to be amazed how easy temperature control is compared to my old performer.

  • Secret Aardvark sauces.  Their Drunken Jerk and Drunken Black Bean Garlic are amazing with grilled chicken.  If you haven't had their hot sauce, it's one of the best too.  Here's the three pack on amazon:

    I made chicken thighs last night and based it on an old marinade we used to use for pork chops (which is very simply, Caesar salad dressing an Dijon mustard).

    I used;

    olive oil
    greek seasoning (Penzey's)
    brown mustard
    apple cider
    corn starch (to thicken it up and stick to the chicken)
    greek salad dressing

    You could vary any of that as you like, as long as you end up with an herbal salad dressing and mustard, and you baste a couple times...the flavor is awesome.   You only have to let it sit long enough to light your egg and bring it up to temp.

    This pic doesn't do it justice, but it was good.  Also grilled some local made kielbasa and asparagus;
