  • I was thinking about doing some beef ribs.  You convinced me to give it a shot.  Those really look good!!  Is that a large BGE?
  • The chicken was about 6 lbs.  I put a rub on it and cooked it indirect at 250 spatchcocked (sp?) until it reached the internal.  I used (don't remember, but it was one I found on here)  About 3 - 4 hrs.  It was nice and brown but was tough!  My wife…
  • Thanks for the info stike.  I know we are convinced at the quality of using the BGE.  Only had it for less than a month.  Chicken was only failure.  I think it was way under cooked.  Extremely tough.
  • Thanks stike.  Going to cook this bird this afternoon.  Should I set her out of the fridge to get he up to room temp prior to going on the grill?  Not sure if I m going direct or indirect.  I got a raised grill yesterday and also a cast iron grill f…
  • What does it mean "pulled tented"?  Just a rookie trying to figure this thing out.  Starting to get the big head though, had the egg for a week and did a pork butt and a flat brisket.  Family and friends think I am a master chef!  The  BGE is great!!

  • lousubcap,  thanks for responding.  Dialed it up to about 280 and now I am at 181 internal.  Just got a remote temp for Oregon Scientific and it is making things pretty easy.  After I got the egg, the first thing I did was calibrate the dome temp ga…
  • Well guys, I am a newbie and into my first pork butt using your directions above.  So far, so good.  Got the BGE up to 250 about 7:00 AM and it stabalized.  Got her rubbed with mustard and my own brown sugar/garlic powder rub.  Here we are at 2:00 P…
  • I am new egger and I am thinking of investing in the DIGQ DX.  Do I just need the monitor and probes?  Or do I need fans as well.  Sounds a little confusing.  I have found the DIGQ DX on line for about $179, but on ebay it is over $200????  Am I mis…
