  • JohnnyH, I would also marinade in whatever you want for about 4-6 hours, brush some mustard on the non fatty side, sprinkle some rub on and then place on the egg.[p]THe mustard will be removed in the smoking process, leaving a nice bark of the rub.…

  • PigsEye, Based on the way the egg holds temp, I should just sleep well. I think the nervous annie in me will get up every 3-4 hours.[p]Maybe if I drink enough beer, I can sleep until 7.[p]Saucehog

  • RRP, Thanks for the tip on using the 3 ceramic pieces in addition to the concrete block.[p]I had moved the dogbeds under the overhang to get them out of the rain. The dogs might sleep there since the know what comes out of the egg.[p]Also, the whi…
