  • @Wooderson Great looking banquet right there.  Congrats on starting the thread.  It's that time of year.
  • All in know is that for the first time in many, many years I will miss the annual crawfish boil that a friend over-nights in around 125 lbs of live crawfish from NO for.  Happens on 6/23 and I have an event several hundred mikes away that I have to …
  • Brisket and anything for the win.  Great adaptation right there.
  • As always a great cook and presentation.  Now given the hour, that is a "breakfast of champions."  Congrats.
  • Welcome aboard and enjoy the journey.  Above all, have fun. Great start right there.
  • Great looking result right there.  Way to bring it home.
  • As has been said, you've got this but still quite an undertaking.  I'm sure the meat supplier had quite a smile when you left with the order.   Enjoy the recovery once this is over.  Hope the weather gods are smiling on you.  
  • I have few sets of coveralls for the messy paint/yard work etc. With the BGE I do cycle thru the same collection of grease-stained, ember burn holes etc T-shirts (and a couple of long sleeved for winter) when playing with fire.  I count on the FTC o…
  • Welcome aboard and enjoy the journey.  Above all, have fun.   Regarding your question-no clue.  
  • Great looking meteorite right there.  The shredding is likely due to it being slightly over-cooked.  If you went straight from the BGE to the FTC without giving it some time  to stop the carry-over cooking (around 20-30 minutes) that is the source o…
  • Welcome aboard and enjoy the journey.  Above all, have fun. Q skills translate very well as you just demonstrated.  Great looking ribs.

  • I am guessing based on the weights that you could likely get them both on one grid but you would have to do a lot of foil protecting as there would be a lot over-hanging your heat deflector.  The drip pan containment would present a bit of a challen…
  • Wherever you land start the fridge defrost now.  I'm guessing based on the brisket weight that it is a flat??  If you had success with your prior brisket cook then this one would be just scaled up recognizing the "friggin cow drives the cook. " The …
  • Thanks for the great write-up and sharing quite a successful trip.  Congrats on the catch and the excellent food preparation and presentation.   Gonna be tough to top that one.  
  • USA airports definitely took it in the shorts-but my recent int'l travels would say that CDG (Charles De Gaulle) is ranked way too high.  Makes ATL look like the most efficient place on the planet.   FWIW-
  • Great way to get after it and deliver.  I would take that outcome any day.  Thanks for the write-up as well. You have set a high bar for the next one -but that's what you earned for this cook.  Congrats.
  • Another endorsement for @fishlessman's insight.  And I was gifted the BGE three tier rig shortly after acquiring my LBGE.  Definitely a non-functional design/use piece of gear.  With the half you can lower the placement of the grid to get more clear…
  • ABT- Atomic Buffalo Turd- Jalapeno pepper usually split length-wise, deveined and seeded then stuffed with about any filling you can come up with, wrapped in bacon (the home-run ingredient, unless a vegan) and grilled (I go indirect til the bacon is…
  • Given you have the green light with a bit of liberal interpretation, I would shop for a close upcoming eggfest or a dealer deal for the warranty.  Peace of mind and one major ceramic piece replacement and any savings are recouped with the warranty. …
  • Great entertainment right there.  I would shelve the brisket and go with pulled pork.  Much easier (less attention required) cook.  For the vegans - I am SOL ($hit Outta Luck).  Load up on some cole slaw to compliment the pork  (placate the vegans).…
  • Another thread waiting for the buffalo!
  • @jnovakbge - Welcome aboard and enjoy the journey.  Above all, have fun!  That said, the above site is about the best source of after-market accessories going.  However,  I would play around with your BGE before you go "off the deep end" and buy mor…
  • As I recall the concept and execution of tipping for service is quite different on each side of the pond.  Doubt much has changed.  
  • Nice cook and result right there.  Great bark on that meteorite.  Sounds like you declared victory a bit early but still had some great groceries-and the gift of time by the family.   BTW- solid smoke ring right there especially for the BGE. Cherry…
  • Notmuch to add but given you were running fine at 300*F and then couldn't raise temp above 350*F would lead me to believe you ran out of fuel.   And about the platesetter another vote for having the landing zone prepped and ready before removing. BT…
  • Great cook and outcome right there.  Congrats.
  • Now that is a great cook and outcome. Most eggcellent.  Great bark, dead give-away for the slice direction on both sections. Congrats.
  • lousubcap said: What temp did you run with and was that instrument calibrated as this sounds like the "equalizer" cow; the one who moves the cook time per lb back to "normal".     @Live2GrillGrill2Live - any insights as to the above??
  • @Bentgrass - hunk of beauty right there.  Way to bring it home.  Congrats-great eats.
