  • I must be the only one out there that thinks it's more work with than without. I did Butts for 9 weeks straight and never hooked up the Stoker. Never had a problem. Then again.....maybe I am just lucky? Rick in Mt.
  • My last ten butts...the last 10 weeks, I cooked without the Stoker. They all turned out great. But, I did take time to empty the lump and clean it well and I didn't do a cook before the Butts. I feel a clean egg is the key. Just my 2 cents worth.…
  • I am from and live in Mt. the handle is quite simply my name. I got my egg almost eggactly a year ago and the small 4 months after that. There may be a mini in the future...too dimm to see. Rick in Mt.
  • Very nice looking table. the egg should be happy there. Rick in Mt.
  • Kent, mine never cook that fast. I usually put them on around 5 or 6 and pull around noon. They don't vary much. Rick in Mt.
  • Those are big Butts Molly..LOL Sorry, I couldn't resist. Rick in Mt. ps...relax the rest is easy.
  • Dome temp at 200 will take longer to cook than 250. That could be your problem. I have cooked butts on a small...atho you have to be very carefull about how you put the lump in. Rick in Mt.
  • I have to agree with Adam. Pork T-Loins and Spatchcock Chicken. It would be hard to pick between the two. Just be sure and use some Dizzy Pig on them ..... Rick in Mt.
  • I think one of these days...we may be able to find some. I hear we got an official 13 inches yesterday...on top of the 8 inches the day before.
  • Beli, After the ribs were done and the asparagus was cooked we ate dinner last night. Had several glasses of wine. Then we had BBQ bananas for desert. Still had to shovel some snow before retiring for the night. Only to wake up to more snow. It a…

  • Pwise, I live somewhere I would rather not be today. I can see 12 inches easy, and most of this has melted as it hit the warm ground. Montana at it's best. If April showers bring May flowers.....what does a foot of snow get ya? Rick in M…

  • I could only wish for rain... Rick in Mt
  • I cooked a couple on Wed. Put them on at 5 and took them off at 2 the next day. You do the math. These were close to 8 pounders and were delicious. Still have some left in the fridge that we are eating slowly. I have found that each butt is differen…
  • I am happy to see that I am not the only one to put ice in Wine....LOL Great looking burgers Rick in Mt.
  • I am with Paul on this one. If your wife ever had a spatchcocked chicken with some DD Shakin the tree on it, she would quit with the BBQ sauce. Wow! And the moistness of the breast is something that has to be experienced. Rick in Mt.
  • It may be too late.......but I would cook to 155 breast and 180 thigh...hope you have an instant read thermo. Just got done munching on some left overs from Friday night. Usually don't have much for left overs. Rick in Mt.
  • Thanks Kent..the only problem is the meat tasted way better than the pics. I tried out the wifes new camera. Works dang good. I may have to retire the old Sony. Rick in Mt. Can you smell spring yet kent?
  • I hope my wife or one of the kids sees this and takes the hint. I think a good knife is long over due. Rick in Mt.
