Need recommendations for what to 'Q for Thursday's tailgate:

I'm tailgating with a new crew for Thursday night's GT/VT ESPN matchup... any suggestions on what to 'Q the day/night before?[p]I was thinking about doing a brisket, but that will kill my Wednesday workday... I'm still a newbie at flame management (plus... every brisket I've done, I've run out of coal 3/4 of the way through).[p]Any suggestions besides brisket? Possibly something that takes less than 6/7 hours? [p]Many thanks.

    Pork loins are always a winner and they only take a couple of hours.

  • One of the King's Men,
    pit beef would be another way to go. . .only 2 - 3 hours (depending the size of the roast beef). .makes excellent sandwiches. would need to be able slice the beef paper thin though (an electric deli-type slicer works best) ... [p]if you don't know what pit beef is, go to wess b's site and look at his description. . i do mine pretty much the same way. . .

    One of the King's Men,[p]How about some pork tenerloins and some ABT's done at the same time with a grill extender. [p]ABT's are always a hit[p]GO GA TECH.[p]Kent

    One of the King's Men,[p]I'm also voting for a pork loin. Mr. Toad's work extremely well. I will be tailgating at AMC, so let me know where you will be and I can stop by to give you an expert critique. :-)[p]Go Jackets!
  • KevinH,
    Nice to know there are some fellow Jackets on board here. When I find out where this group tailgates, I'll post accordingly. Also, if the T'loin and/or Ribs survive the RV ride from Middle GA, I'll be sure to keep a look out for you. [p]Some day I'm going to spring for a small egg for occasions like this. It would be nice to 'q on site.

  • Buzzy,
    ...never done ABT's... might be a good time to start. [p]Go Jackets, indeed.

    One of the King's Men,[p]Having been fortunate enough to try these several ways (not always on my own dime, thank God), i must tell you that you HAVE to do them with the grid extender and using a pizza screen. We have changed about every variable, and elevated with the screen has by far the best results.
  • Car Wash Mike,
    Good call, Car Wash... BTW, is that a large egg in your photo? [p]Also, it looks like part of your ribs are not "protected" by the plate setter... how do you keep these parts from buring. This is a big crew, I'll need several racks.

    <p />One of the King's Men,
    That is a large. I arranged this way for a good pic. Here is how they started.[p]Rotate and flip if cooking a bunch.[p]
