Knew I should've checked my P.O.Box.  I only go there about once a week...missed another invite.

Damn it...This has been a bad weekend overall for me. Glad it's Monday and I have my head screwed back on straight.

My Grill Grates came in last week, so I gave them a try on the OTG - grilled ribeyes & zucchini to go with baked potatoes.  I still have a bit of a learning curve with the Grill Grates, but I got nice, criss-crossed sear marks on the steak and was generally pleased with how they worked.  I also did an overnight smoke of a pork butt on the WSM Saturday night.  I had been keeping the smoker at around 225F in the past but decided to try 250F, and it worked well.  I couldn't tell any difference from my 225F cooks but finished in around 13 hours instead of the usual 19-20 hours, so we got to have pulled pork for lunch instead of dinner.

I've been running mine around 250 - 275 the last couple smokes.  The food has turned out just as good and shaved several hours off the process.  You do burn a little more charcoal but not enough for me to go back to a 15+ hour smoke day.

Post by: DadVader1 on July 16, 2012, 04:39:34 pm
Thanks Tim.  This attempt, I tried to stay in the 240-250 range.  Next time, I think I will try to stay around 260-270 to see if I get similar results in less time.  About what temperature range do you use for your brisket?   The brisket in your photo looks great!

Nothing big this weekend, but I did try something different on hamburgers.  I was watching a food show and there is a restaurant called 50/50 that specializes in burgers.

Here's the catch.  They use a ration of 50% ground beef and 50% ground bacon.  Mix and add pepper.  They were excellent.

Highly recommend...

Right about 275.....at least that is what I was shooting for.  I've been running everything but chicken at about that temp (give or take 15 degrees either way).

Doing fajitas on the egg tomorrow.  Got two, one pound chunks of top sirloin marinating in a fajita marinate, will do the same with the onions and peppers in the morning.  Cook to a medium rare, slice off what I need for the fajitas, saute the peppers onions and should be good to go.  Pretty good way to make them.   Add a little fresh quacamole and should be set.

BTW, the wife is roughing it, grilled lobster tail.

Grilled some stuffed cheeseburgers(cheddar, mozzarella, swiss and mushrooms).  I am going to smoke some split chicken breasts that have marinated for several hours in Stubbs marinade.  I have found when I put them in a roasting pan with butter they do not dry out as much.  Heavy smoke in the old Brinkman for 2 1/2 hours and they are done!

A friend who works for Zatarains gave me a sample of McCormicks new Bacon and Molasses rub and I put it one chicken thighs last night and threw them on the egg.  Pretty darn good.

Also did the stuffed Pablanos and they turned out great.  Been awhile since I've made them but they were as remembered.

McClard's is OK, but one of my favorite dishes I do is a copycatted version of their Tamale Spread, but like you said.  Mine is better.

Whenever I have leftover smoked pork butt or brisket I make a tamale spread.  It is one of the ultimate gut bombs.

Fritos
tamales
BBQ beans
chopped smoked meat (pork or brisket)
sauce
cheddar cheese
chopped onions.

Cavendars Greek and Tony C's Cajun spices are on every thing I grill or cook at my house.
I got to get some Italian Dressing cause it seems everyone is using it and loves it.

My wife been loving Chicken Breast with McCormicks Monteray Steak Seasoning on them.

I just coat with EVO sprinkle on the seasoning and let them set in the Frig for 30 minutes or so then set them out to warm up a bit before hitting the grill.

I cook chicken several different ways, but one of my favorites is the Italian dressing thing also. Just before taking off the grill I squeeze fresh lemon juice on the meat.

Cooked 12 chicken tenders for chicken sandwichs Sunday afternoon since Church has cancelled Sunday Night services for the month of Dec and the weather was 72 degrees. 
Used salt and pepper only and 2 small pecan limbs cut 6 inchs long and 1/2 around for some smoke.

Delta, how does pecan compare with apple?? That is typically what I use.

How was the heat with keeping the charcoal inside?

To me it gives it a soft smoke flavor that not as strong as OAK.

A case of pork butts and 12 slabs of baby-backs.  Also made a venison fatty with bacon lattace.  I overcooked it a little.  Too done on the bottom but tasted good for my first one.

I used pecan for the first time about a month ago and really liked the subtle difference. I usually use hickory and probably still will for butts. But for tenderloins, ribs and chicken I will use pecan.

Love it, I soak wood chips and add them during the smoking, the best part of the electric smoker is the temperature hovers no more than 3 degrees each side.  Perfect for smoking brisket and a turkey I smoked over thanksgiving

It was 5 rib roast and I smoked it at 275 for about 4 1/2 hours.  It was a little more done than I wanted but a couple of them prefer their beef a little more on the done side.

My man, we enjoy the finer things in life!  I know those king crabs and big shrimp are in the $20 a pound range.  If I can't go first class I'm not going and I get the impression, based on your photos, you feel the same way.

How did you do your king crab?  I've baked then in the oven, smoked them on the egg but never boiled them.

Smoked the Prime Rib for 5 hours..  Tomorrow night for nye doing Burnt Ends &. Pork loin.. Plus have the Black eyed peas, ham hocks, fried taters, cornbread and greens ready for New Years Day..

We've bought from Dimes in the past, and they have some of the nicest people in the world working there, but to me it just comes down to whether the product they sell, at the price they charge, is better than what I can buy at FM.  To us, there's just not that much different in quality but a big difference in price.

You saw the pictures I posted.  Those were two porterhouse cuts, a little over 1 3/4 pound each, good marbling and I spent $35 and some change on both of them.  Not sure you could touch that at Richards or Dimes for that price.  JMO.

Keep in mind that the specials change from week to week. Last week it was the porterhouses I think this week is the pork tenderloins.  You can check their website to see what's going on.  Either way, go up, browse through the meat case and tell me what you think.   I think you'll like itl.

Hey Pig, how long does this typically need to cook at 350 before it starts to bubble??

OK Pig, here is my review! I did have a couple of twists though.

This meatloaf was super easy to make. I did change out the beef for 85/15 turkey meat. I couldn't find a 99 cent bag of sour cream/onion chips, so I got a $1.49 bag. (damn, I hope you didn't get yours on sale. My lady friend got quite a chuckle out of this instead of you just saying how many ounces to use) I also added about 1/3 cup of diced yellow onion, average size onion. I cooked the concoction for 35 minutes and then added 1/4 cup of ketchup to glace. Cooked 10 minutes longer and served over baked tortilla chips.

Twas damn good and resonably healthy!!!! I WILL be making this again. Thanks much.

  Love it. Has a sweetness with a small bite to it. GREAT on pork, have not tried it on beef. Even tried it on an omelet and turned out great. Don't think I would try mixing sugar with it, as it definitely has some sweetness to it already.

Going to use BR's blackberry sauce on half and Famous Daves Rib Rub on the other half of the chicken wings, and steam the shrimp and crab legs. Not sure exactly how I'm gonna do the wings yet, whether to fry them up then glaze them or just smoke em and glaze em.  Ready for the Game.

There are ways to cook a REALLY good steak on the stove.  My wife handles the indoor steak cooking, and it's as good as my grilled.  Different, but good.  More like the fancy steak houses.  None of them grill.

I Flat Iron my steaks some times in the Stove I get the oven up to 500 and when the lard starts to very smoke I pull out the cast iron skillet and put the steaks in.  3 minutes a side for me and 5 for the wife and I have great steaks using just salt and pepper. Key is letting the steaks get up to room temp which I do even for the Weber.

Yeah I can do a decent steak with the cast iron skillet and the stove but it just isn't the same as what you get with charcoal.

  Hey Delta and Tim, when you pull out that skillet, throw in a couple cloves of garlic and roll them around in the hot oil for a bit, take them out and then throw the steaks in. Don't let the garlic burn, though. It infuses the oil with the garlic and adds that extra flavor.

It's true.  I love a good grilled steak.  But when it's freezing outside with snow and ice, I don't mind letting the wife go the screaming hot cast iron route.  Gets a nice even crust on the outside of the meat that is actually quite tasty, especially if it's saving my toes from a bit of frostbite!!!

That's the only way we eat them anymore. Split the tails in half, baste them in a butter/garlic mixture and cook them meat side down at 300 or so, flip them once or twice and dig in.  BTW, today is the last day they are on sale for $6.

I usually make up a rub with lots of black pepper, salt, garlic powder, thyme, and rosemary. Ill cut some garlic cloves in half and rub it all over the meat and then apply the rub. Wrap in plastic wrap in fridge over night and let come to room temp the next day before smoking.

Smoke it at 225 until it reaches 130-140 degrees, depending on how well done you want it. I suggest no higher than 135. Remove it, cover it with foil and let it rest for 30 minutes before slicing thinly across the grain to serve. Against the grain is key or it will be tougher than shoe leather.

Since I had the egg fired up, went ahead and smoked a 3 1/2 pound turkey breast smothered in Bacon and Molasses rub and threw some mesquite chips on after I had finished my first cook.   Smoked it at 225 for about 3-4 hours

Delta, if you like lobster, the ones FM sells are great.  You can buy a 4 for $25 on Fridays the month of April and those things on the egg are great.  I baste them with a garlic butter and cook around 325 or so.  They're Maine lobsters and not the other kind.

Probably have to smoke them for an hour or so then wrap them in foil with a little liquid and let them cook for a while longer.  I don't really care for country ribs unless I'm cooking them in crock pot.

Forgive me in advance. I know this is a smoker based thread. As a proud owner of a Big Green Egg and two other smokers, I am about to blaspheme. When it comes to country ribs (of which I'm not much of a fan), you truly may get your best results in a crock pot. I'd give them one more shot, perhaps using some foil, lowering your temps, and using a baste or mop. If your results don't improve, go back to the crock pot when making country ribs and leave the smoking to the ribs cut the way God intended, and to baby backs.

I thought about smoking them for an hour or two and then putting them in the crock pot.  It just seems like they need the moisture to keep from drying out, and the smoker doesn't do so well with that. They are pretty fatty though, so that's why it surprised me that they were a bit on the dry side.  And the fat didn't seem to render away like it does with other pork I've smoked.  They were kind of tough and fatty at the same time.  Kinda weird.

Smoke them on your BGE at 300 degrees for about 1.5 hours. Then wrap in foil and cook another hours This will accomplish everything you are wanting.

when it comes to country style ribs, I find them to be best when grilled relatively quickly instead of smoking them.

I've tried that too, but they were a bit fatty for my taste.  I like smoking fattier cuts because it renders the fat down.

I smoke country style ribs for about 2 hrs and they come out tender, juicy, and very flavorful. I either marinade them with Wickers beforehand, or just coat with a good rub.

Regarding country style ribs- It must be the way they are butchered. I fix them all the time on my egg and they are very tender and flavorful. Very lean cut. Just a thin layer of fat on one side and a little fat on one end. I've done them slow at about 215F for about 3 to 3-1/2 hours and faster at about 300F. Always turn out good.

My family shows up big for turkeys.  In the past three days I've done the following:

Double batch of gumbo.

Breakfast for 10 twice.

Shrimp boil for 15.

Burgers and homestyle fries for 15.

About 8 pounds of baked chicken for the picky people.

Fried and sauteed about 40 morels found by the turkey hunters.

And on two occasions the fry daddy was fired up for a few bream some of the kids caught.  Then it turned in to a few hours of "lets see what taste good deep fried in beer batter."

That's a good weekend.

Smoked two whole chickens on the egg. Usually cook at 300, but dropped it down to 225. Took quite a bit longer, but even more tender and juicy. Definitely worth the additional time.

  Grilled up a bunch of chicken parts with apple wood then slathered them with Sweet Baby Ray's sauce. Took 5 beers and a couple shots of tequila to get thru it. 7 teenagers at the house wiped them out within half and hour. Caught the dang kids even licking the pan.

I'm still skeptical. I've never had meat from wal mart that was decent. Ever since I started using a butcher, that garbage wal mart calls meat is out of the question.

  Might try Wallmart ribs, but that would be it. Had been using Lonnie's here in Conway, but with them run out of business by Health Dept. and closed, started using Tommy's in Maumelle. Like some of Kroger's meat when it is fresh cut, but lately the flavor is just not there with the meat in the display cases.

Smoked a brisket yesterday.   Was the best one I've ever done.  Used a new rub recipe.  Also used a new red sauce as a dip for the brisket.....spectacular.

Also....for dessert....I used a recipe for banana pudding that was brand new to me.   It was......by far.....the best banana pudding that I've ever had.   Was very simple to make....just a couple of differences from usual made it totally different.  And spectacular.

8 cups milk
4 cook and serve banana pudding packages (not instant)
1 can sweetened condensed milk (the secret to the success I think)
6 egg whites
1 tsp cream of tartar
1 cup sugar
5 bananas
1 box vanilla/nilla wafers

Mix egg whites and tartar with electric mixer at high speed until starts to get frothy.  Add sugar and continue to mix until thick.  (standard meringue)
Set aside

Mix milk, condensed milk, and pudding mix  with a wire wisk in a large sauce pan.  Heat to a full boil over medium heat.....STIRRING CONSTANTLY.

Pour half of pudding mixture into a 9x13 baking pan.

I put an entire layer of banana slices then an entire layer of wafers. in the middle.  I then did another spaced out layer of banana slices and wafers. (just to use all my banana slices and wafers.

Then add the other half of the pudding mix to the top. 

Spread meringue over the entire top making sure the meringue "seals" at the edges.

Bake for 13 minutes in a preheated 375 degree oven. (or until meringue is golden brown)

Remove and let stand for 30 minutes before serving.

(you will be eating this warm.   You can refrigerate it, but banana pudding is notorious for "weeping"...and so is meringue....so if you get it cold....get ready to have a lot of water in it)

Guys.....this is a very simple recipe....and may be the one many of you already use.   But it was new to me and was simply amazing.  Again.....I think that the condensed milk makes a huge difference.

I will post the recipe when I get home.   Just remembered the pudding because it was so simple.

The red sauce was a cider vinegar based sauce.   Included Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, cumin, onion and garlic powder, brown sugar,......a couple of other things.   

I've never done what I consider a damn good brisket until yesterday.   I was very happy with it.  Hell....my wife even told me how good it was.   Just fell into place that the sauce and pudding were both very good as well.   One of those everything is spectacular meals.

1 1/2 Cups cider vinegar

1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp ground black pepper

Whisk together all ingredients in a medium sauce pan.  Bring to a boil over high heat.  Stirring until butter melts.  Remove from heat; serve warm

I didnt put the butter in until the boil just started and I stirred constantly.

I report back if there's any interest.
Please do.   

Also.....let me know what you think about the banana pudding.   (you are gonna love it)
Vietnamese Marinated Flank Steak With Cucumber and Radish Salad
Yield 4 to 6 servings
Ingredients
•   1/2 cup fish sauce
•   1 tablespoon packed lime zest
•   1/3 cup fresh lime juice (from about 3 limes)
•   2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
•   2 garlic cloves, grated or minced
•   1 large jalapeño, seeds and veins removed if desired, minced
•   1 flank steak, about 1 1/2 pounds
•   1 small seedless English cucumber, thinly sliced
•   1 large bunch of radishes, thinly sliced
•   4 scallions, thinly sliced
•   1 teaspoon vegetable, peanut or olive oil (optional)
•   Cooked rice noodles or rice, for serving (optional)
•   Sesame seeds or crushed roasted peanuts, for serving (optional)
•   Fresh mint leaves or cilantro, for serving (optional)
Method
1.   In a small bowl, combine the fish sauce, lime zest, lime juice, brown sugar, garlic and jalapeño. Pour 1/2 of the mixture over the flank steak and let marinate at room temperature for at least 30 minutes (or refrigerate for up to 24 hours). Let meat come to room temperature before cooking if necessary.
2.   Combine the cucumber, radishes and scallions. Pour in just enough of the marinade sauce to coat.
3.   Light the grill or heat the broiler to high. Pat steak dry with paper towels.
4.   If grilling, cook until done to taste, about 3 minutes per side for rare. If broiling, heat a 10-inch skillet over high heat for 5 minutes. Add oil to pan and sear the meat for 2 minutes. Flip meat and immediately transfer pan directly to top shelf of oven and broil for 2 to 3 minutes for rare, or longer for more well-done meat. Transfer steak to a cutting board and let rest for 10 minutes covered in foil.
5.   Thinly slice steak and serve over cooked rice noodles or rice if desired, and top with the cucumber salad. Garnish with sesame seeds and plenty of herbs if using and serve with remaining marinade as a sauce.

I cooked it on the grill (of course) and served it over rice. I also added some Habanero strips to the marinade for extra kick.

It was pretty good and I'll fix again and serve to guests. I've been exploring some of the cheaper cuts of meat lately and been real pleased with what can be done with Flank steak.

I'm thinking I won't get around to the banana pudding tonight but will do it tomorrow for sure.

Nailed some ribeyes tonight.  Slight failure on the fresh cut fries, it's amazing how there really is an art to something that seems so simple on paper.

I love flank steak. I make it marinated in Mexican type spices and lemon/lime juice and serve up with corn tortillas and the regular Mexican sides. It's really good and a cheap way to feed steak to the family Witt breaking the bank.

Went striper fishing on lake texoma last weekend and was able to hit my limit.  ended up with 20 fillets of striper so naturally had some friends over to help me eat them.  Since we had a large group and the grill at my apt sucks we decided to broil them but they turned out great.  Very easy too.  Just added some cajun seasoning, lemon pepper, a touch of salt, and butter and broiled them until they were ready.  About 15 minutes.  Turned out Great.  Helped that I was able to cook them the same day they were caught.

Smoked a really small butt on the egg today. Made your red sauce to go with it (didnt really measure ingredients though). Its really good. Similar to what I usually make but this is a little thicker. Made a great sandwich.

Just put two 8 lb Boston butts in the oven to finish them off. Also smoked three 3 lb pork tenderloins and three racks of baby back ribs from Sams. After smoking the ribs 2 hrs I tried putting brown sugar and honey on them and wrapped them in foil meaty side down for two more hours then unwrapped about 30 mins. Holy shiit they were my best ribs ever

Nothing special this weekend.  Just some burgers and eggplant on the grill Saturday evening. 

Was going to smoke a brisket on Sunday, but I couldn't find any at a reasonable price on Saturday.

Thanks man.  Cooked at 250 till it reached 120.  It was a 7.7 lb 3 bone roast.  After 120 I pulled, got egg to 500 then seared each side for 1 minute each.  Pulled then let sit for 30 min.  It was outstanding!

Around 12 per pound.  You don't have to go bone in roast.  A boneless rib roast is prolly just as tasty and cheaper.

Surf and turf on the egg today.  Made my usual trip to FM in Rogers and they had the lobster tails on sale so we'll go that route again.  Split them in half, little melted butter and garlic to baste them with and we'll eat like kings.  Almost glad it's kind of a pain to get to or I'd go there 3-4 times a week.

I have never smoked a pork loin and I am not sure why I haven't.   How did you prepare this and how long and at what temp?

I just rubbed it pretty heavy with strawberrys rub and smoked at 300 degrees til internal temp was 130. Then I put the glaze on all sides and kept smoking til 145 degrees. Took off and loosely tented with foil and let rest 15 minutes. I've learned to cook to temp and not by time. Buy a cheap thermometer with alarm(got
Mine at academy sports for 20$). You set it to whatever temp and then it shows you what temp your meat is and what temp your target is. Mine even has another remote unit that you can sit inside and it beeps when target temp is reached. Sorry for the long post.

Thanks! I cook by temp as well and have a remote unit as well.  Generally how long does it take?  Don't want to put something on and have it get finished way early or way late.

That was a whole loin. It took about 2 hours. Maybe 2&1/2?  Only thing is, I have big green egg and the dome temp reading is usually a little higher than the actual temp. I probably cooked those at 275 at the cooking grid. I have cooked them at about 325 and it takes bout an hour or hour and a half but the loer temp seems to come out better for me.

Boneless lamb leg, couple chicken breasts, and few jalapeno cheddar chicken bombs. Lamb was perfect medium rate. I don't even like lamb all that much but it was awesome.

Report back and post pics!!! What kind of smoker are you using?  And by peach, do you mean you're using peach wood, or the recipe has peaches in it?

I'm using a Weber cooker? and the recipe calls for peach or apricot wood in addition too Smuckers Peach Jam.    I'm not really good at posting pics but I'll report back.  Hopefully,  it will turn out but I have to start somewhere. (:

I'm using a Weber cooker? and the recipe calls for peach or apricot wood in addition too Smuckers Peach Jam.    I'm not really good at posting pics but I'll report back.  Hopefully,  it will turn out but I have to start somewhere. (:
Love to hear about the results. Never heard of using peach or apricot wood, but sounds good.

First,  let me say that smoking/grilling is harder than it looks!!    It almost has to be a guys domain but I tried it.....I had a hard time getting it hot enough but I finally did it and the food tasted wonderful......Of course, I finished it off in the oven...lol...yes, I worried about it being thoroughly cooked but I reside to the fact that I need lots of practice and patience!!   It makes me more appreciative of guys who can grill!!    (:   

BTW....The recipe I used was one that BR had the sign up emails for.

If you don't have one, an instant read probe thermometer takes the guess work out of internal temperatures. And yes, controlling the fire and heat is the hardest part.

Nope but the Neighbor got one he left out doors and cooks on all the time . 

I personally only recommend Weber Kettles or my dream BGE.

Baconburgers!!

It wasn't picture worthy, but I had Dime's meat market in Springdale grind 3/4 lb. of bacon with 2 1/4 lb of beef. In other words three parts beef to one part bacon. The bacon needs to be frozen first so it will grind easily.

If any of you try this, make your paddies a couple of ounces bigger than usual as they do cook off a little more than all beef.

And watch for flare-ups. Last time I did this I didn't use that much bacon, but I wasn't watching well enough and flare-ups Torched a couple patties.

Fayetteville might as well be in the desert when it comes to finding Andouille or Boudin sausage.  Stopped by Maudie's Friday and they had one stick that looked freezer burned to hell.  Head to Florida in a couple weeks and I'll stock up on the way back.  When it comes to finding Cajun sausages or cajun products, Fayetteville AR sucks.

I FINALLY smoked a brisket that was worthy of serving to friends!!!  I have pretty decent routines down for the usual suspects like ribs, pulled pork, chicken thighs, chicken wings, and beef tenderloins, but I've ruined more practice briskets than I care to admit.  I still have a long way to go before I declare that I have a pretty decent routine figured out for briskets, but it was nice to finally hit one where there was much more good meat than crumbly, over-cooked portions. 

And I completely understand the chicken thing.  I've gotten a LOT better with chicken now that I have a son in college.

I'm a Savoie's fan myself. But never been able to find it up here. My mother in law brings up a Louisiana care package with her every time she comes up.
I'll be stocked up on  andouille, boudain, meat pies, and Zapp's potato chips by this time tomorrow.

Brookshires in Kilgore carries the Manda and the Savoie brands of Andouille I'll pick up somewhen we see the grandkids in May but I'll stop at Minsky's Pecans in Lake Providence, LA on the way down to FL here pretty soon.  I'll swing by on the way down, see what they're carrying and have them order what I want and pick it up on the way back the next week.   I think I can come up with some alligator Boudin and some good andouille.   I'll probably buy 15 or so sticks of the stuff because it freezes so well.

the tri tip was the juiciest I have ever had.....5 min sear on both sides then moved it away from the coals for 10 min a side.  I need to order the proper rub for it though.  the steak rub just wasn't right

Thank you :)

I admit PharmicistHog ribs look really good!   

In the summer, I enjoy being outside as much as I can.    Mangos, pineapples and etc are really good grilled also.  :)

I have not tackled Ribs yet, but I got to get me some more Pork Chops  I must have stubbed my toe cause this batch was GOOD!  The wife had a fit over them.  It was great to get away from Yard Bird , I swear I was wanting to Crow and scratch the yard for worms.

If you're looking for cheap but good eats, try some country pork ribs.  You can smoke them or grill them over hot coals and let them finish over the indirect side.  Throw bbq sauce on for the last few minutes.  Great stuff.

The Local Mexican Grocery store carries them quite a bit so I will give them a try.

Real California tri tip is done with a Santa Maria marinade. Give it a google and experiment with it. This is the only way I cooked it when I lived in SoCal and had unlimited access to this amazing cut of meat.

So my wife surprised me with a primo ceramic grill. I'm in love with this thing, and now she is too! My first real cook, chicken wings. Thanks to PHog for some tips. These things were amazing. Marinated in soy, garlic, ginger, Sriracha, and brown sugar. Then cooked indirect at 359 til almost done. Threw my home made teriyaki sauce on at the end and threw them back on to glaze up. Needless to say, they were amazing.

Great minds think alike. I use cherry wood and plowboys yardbird. That is my "go to" rub for all things pork. I have , however, started using squeeze parkay margarine instead of mustard for slathering.  Seems to make wonderful bark.

May have to try that next time. I'm cooking these a little warmer than I normally do. Going around 275 with four 8-9 lb butts. Hope to have them at 205 after 8 hours.

Man I've gotten to where I cook most everything between 275 and 300. I haven't been able to tell any difference other than it speeding up the cook. I cooked the best brisket of my life at 300 degrees a couple weeks ago. I dont know if it has anything to do with the way the egg cooks but these higher temps sure work great for me.

Today for the first time I'm using sand in the pan instead of water. So far it seems to be easier to maintain temp and it does not seem to be running any hotter than if I was using water. Clean up will be much easier.

Last weekend I got some tailgate fever. Set up my Razorback canopy in the back yard and broke out the tailgate grill. Took some Potatoes and cut them in halves. Butter, salt-n-pepper with some cajun seasoning to boot. A few wings. Stopped at the butcher shop to look around. Picked up a tenderized chicken breast stuffed with cream cheese and wrapped in bacon. Threw a couple of Boudain on there later.

Wife wanted fajitas for lunch. After Church I fired up the small egg, and threw on a sirloin steak and a few chicken breasts. Cooked a few burgers for the boys. Griddled up some onions and peppers and sliced steak and chicken and it was time to eat (less than 30 minutes). Even threw a cobbler in the oven. Now its time to hold down the couch for the rest of the evening.

Did the drippings on the foil burn at all?  Thats one thing I always hate about a drip pan. Those drippings can burn and put off a nasty, acrid smoke.

Nope. Just collected in the bowl formed by the foil. Just make sure you double foil in case one layer gets a leak

Last night ribeyes and portobello mushrooms. Tonight for the NASCAR race I'm thinking hamburgers unless the wife wants to cook something herself

I do have about 6 gallon size Ziplock bags full of the frozen pulled pork I smoked two weeks ago left in the freezer. May pull one out to thaw

My first attempt at a tri tip tonight. Saw one at the local meat market and did an impulse buy.

Turned out pretty well. Will do things a little different next time, but it is easy to see why all those Californians love it.

How did you cook your tritip and what would you do different?

I smoked it at 225 for a couple of hours to get it to about 120.  Then did a quick reverse sear to get it to 130-135.

Next time I will try a simple Santa Maria style, just for something different.

Yeah, I have a couple, the one I usually use is a wire mesh.

Didn't use it tonight for a couple of reasons. a) wife wanted something not grilled; and b) was using the small grill and didn't really have the room.

LOL!!   Know what you mean.  What's interesting is $12 a dozen is less than I paid for a dozen on half shell in Destin in May of last year and the baked ones are around $20-25 a dozen.  Someone said FM had them for 89 cents each over the weekend so may have to try them.

If I did I'd take you up on it.  Said many times I don't want to live in Louisiana but man I wish I had access to the food you can get down there.

Talked to Fresh Market today and they get theirs in on Tuesdays and Fridays.  Not sure where they come from but the lady who can answer that was out but will be in tomorrow.  I'd guess oysters are basically oysters aren't they??  Would they ship fresh ones in from the east or west coast?

I has the sadz for you :(

There's an oyster bar in the Newark airport that gets about 27 different kinds flown in from around the world every day.

The BEST flavored ones are the ones from the South Carolina region of the Atlantic.

Good and clean with a good nutty flavor to them.

For some reason, the oysters in the Mississippi River Basin grow twice as fast as the same oysters in other regions of the gulf.

I just filet'd them and left skin on. Cut dark red out of them. Just threw em on egg scales down and let em cook. Thats some good stuff. My wife flipped out over the oysters. I froze the flounder. Will cook it next week. Probably gonna fry it.

Not sure what the difference is between Trigger fish and Queen Trigger fish but Trigger fish is our favorite when we go to Florida and it's on the menu.   Either that or Grouper and we're happy as hell. 

Last time I tried to blacken a fish I didn't realize the smoke alarm was connected to the security system when the system was unarmed.  House was smoky as hell, had the doors open, fans on and the thing had been going off and the phone rang.  Lady asked if all was all right, wanted our password and wanted to know if she needed to cancel the fire truck.  Think the next time I'll fire up the egg and throw a cast iron skillet on it and go about it that way.

Cured in black pepper, salt, brown sugar, coconut sugar, grade a male syrup, a little sodium nitrite and water for a wet cure. Smoked for about 3 hours with apple wood (wanted maple, but didn't find it). Let it get cold again overnight. Sliced it, fried it, ate it, got a boner.

Rookie smoker here.  I bought the Brinkman Trailmaster offset smoker about 10 days ago and have done a couple racks of ribs (baby back & stl) and a boston butt that we made pulled pork out of.  Everything so far has turned out pretty dang good for a rookie.  Still learning as I go but I think it is quickly becoming a new hobby for me

Congrats on becoming an egghead!  There is a learning curve for sure.  Out of curiosity, how big did you go and how much did you pay?  I've had mine a few years and seems like the Large BGE and the 4 foot table ran me around $1300.

Large BGE with a nest.  BRAND NEW.  Some pieces still in the box.  Was given to the guy as a gift, but didn't really have use/room for it, so he posted it on his employer message board.  My wife works there and saw it and forwarded it to me (so I took that as an implicit OK to buy it).   $500!

Tonight I will be cooking Brats and corn on it.

My man, that's a helluva deal!  Can't pass on that.  Been a while since I've looked but I think a large BGE is probably north of $800 these days.  You'll have fun with it.  If you plan on doing much high heat cooking, get you a pair of leather gloves that get up close to the elbow.  Those BGE's will bite you if you're not careful

Same here.  i checked into it and they said it won't hurt the egg itself, it just helps regulating the heat so I just haven't done it.   I did ribs the other day and it stayed at a constant 225 throughout the cook, so if it ain't broke.....   :)

200 degrees and off the smoker at 4:20 p.m.. Cooking temps ran closer to 285 than 275. Hell I've done butts at 300 and can't tell a difference in ones done at 225 for much longer smoke times

It used to work with iPhone. Then after one of the forum updates it stopped working. But yeah, for iPhone pics you have to photobucket them or some other source. I usually just upload them to google drive and download them to my laptop and then post.

Man those look good.  I've never cooked a Boston Butt in my life but may have to after looking at those.  I think my next grilling will be next week after a road trip to Shreveport to pick up 60 pounds of oysters.

This may be cheating, but I did a 48 hour lamb shoulder.  I sous vide it at 131 degrees for 48 hours, then got my egg screaming hot and finished off on there.  Served it with a port demi glace and it was pretty amazing.

Made this today.  Been wanting to try corn on the cob on the egg, Walmart had them on sale and that's all the encouragement I needed.  ;)  Soaked them for around 45 minutes then cooked them at 350 for around 50 minutes.  Did small lobsters and shrimp.  Ate well.

You need to because they're really easy to do.  I split them, baste them with a garlic/butter mixture, start them off meat side down and flip them a couple times basting as I go.  I cook them at 350 and it doesn't take long.  These were the 5oz tails we picked up at Fresh Market.  There is a definite difference between the Maine tails and the ones you pick up at Sam's.

Have a fun and be safe.  I booked a condo for 10 nights the other day in Sandestin so I know what you mean about the seafood goodness.  What we plan on doing this year is taking my cast iron skillet I use on the BGE, swing by Shrimpers and try different kinds of fish on one of the grills they have by the pool.  That way we can see which ones we like the best and stock up on it for our trip home.  Our entire menu while we're there revolves around stuff we can't get fresh up here.  Plus, we'll probably go through 2-3 boxes of oysters while we're there.  ;)

Last trip I took my small green egg and we cooked fresh fish on it most nights. Pretty good stuff. This trip we are staying at miramar beach. We are in a condo but have friends with a house across the parking lot. I figure we will do a lot of cooking at their place.

Boog, turned out pretty darn good. I'll make a few changes and do it again in the next couple days.  I was a little surprised how long it took to cook them.  I was expecting 30 minutes or so but took close to an hour.  May not use all the husk, will chop off the ends and maybe put a hunk of butter in each one.  Just screw around with it. The idea was good but man, they took up some room!  Not sure I can talk the wife into letting me by another egg just to cook corn on!  ;)

I've met your wife, she seems very reasonable to me.....if you promise to cook even more for her!

Gotta say, I'm surprised it took so long to cook. 35 mins always does it for me, but maybe I like mine a little under cooked, not sure.

I have another trick that I've been using for a couple of years. I will melt my butter into a small container and add just as much fresh squeezed lime juice to it as there is butter. I do add a little salt also. Brush it on after you've pulled back the husks. It's like a flavor burst in your mouth biting into good sweet corn and having that lime and salty flavor mix with it. Unless you don't like lime juice, humor me and try it just once.

I'm not at all opposed to trying that.  Actually sounds pretty darn good.  Trying to empty out the freezer so we can bring fish back from Destin so we're grilling out again tomorrow.  I'll swing by Walmart and pick up the corn.  One more question, when the husk just starts to burn, it's about ready isn't it?

I turn my corn once, about halfway through the 35 minute cook. And yes, the husk will start to burn.

I'm getting a woody just thinking about my meal tomorrow. Ribeye, and the corn we've been talking about.....but also.... the first purple hull peas of the season. I've got a lady at the farmers market that is giving her first bag full to me tomorrow morning early. Will have some Cherokee purple tomatoe slices. The only thing that could add to this is if someone has some early okra I can buy also.

I buy all of my seafood from Shrimpers.  He flies an Arkansas flag in front of his business so he can't be all bad!  He told me it was gift from Huckabee who lives not far from there.  He has quality stuff and have always treated me great.  If you're going to be Destin, it's 3-4 miles east of 30A on the north side of the road.  He can get oysters with a day or so harvest date for around $56 a 30 pound box.

I think I know your mushroom place and yeah, they look good.

Where I live, under all these oak trees, I can't grow anything that has to bloom and then turn into something. Not tomatoes, not peppers, not anything. I have to buy them all.

Gotcha.  I know exactly where you're staying.  We're staying at Sandestin about a mile from where you'll be.  Shrimpers is about 6-7 miles dues east of the Silver Sands Outlet Mall on 98.  There is also one of our favorite restaurants a couple miles down the road from you.

Ocean Club at Tops'l.  It's no more than a mile or so from where you're staying.  Check out their website.  We always go for their early bird dining which is from 5-6.  They have a 2 for one menu and we always get the Grouper Almondine.  It's a very nice, elegant restaurant.  You will not be disappointed.  Whatever the appetizer is, get it!  ;)  It's the first road to the right past the stoplight at the Sandestin entrance.  Need to try Stinky's Fishcamp.  It's 3-4 miles on the east side of the road off 30A.  We always go for lunch because dinner is too crowded.

I wear a nice pair of shorts and a golf or button down shirt.  Definitely no tank tops and cutoffs!  Lot of people in slacks and button down shirts, some in dinner jackets.  It's a very nice place.  We always request a seat by the aquarium and watch the fish.  Even at 2 for 1 we still drop $70-75 but well worth is.  Grouper Almandine is around $35, appetizers run $12-15, plus tax and tip. If you get a chance, google their early bird menu.  We've been going there for 30 years.  What I like about it, besides the food, is we can walk to it from our condo.

I hope you liked it because that is one of our favorite places. The name sounds like a dive but it's pretty darn nice.  Haven't done the crawfish tamales but everything there is pretty top notch.  The grilled oysters we got there is what propelled us to start doing them ourselves.   I generally tear the oyster po'boy up and Deb goes the fried oyster plate route.    If you don't mind, let me know where you go next because we're always looking to try something new.    Have fun!  BTW, Shrimpers does a great job steaming shrimp you can take back to your condo if you like steamed shrimp.

The name sounds like a dive but it's pretty darn nice.  Haven't done the crawfish tamales but everything there is pretty top notch.  The grilled oysters we got there is what propelled us to start doing them ourselves.   I generally tear the oyster po'boy up and Deb goes the fried oyster plate route.    If you don't mind, let me know where you go next because we're always looking to try something new.    Have fun!  BTW, Shrimpers does a great job steaming shrimp you can take back to your condo if you like steamed shrimp.

Stinkys has shrunken their menu. They said they had a kitchen fire so now they are serving food next door in the bait shop. Was really good though. We are gonna hit that ocean club place one night. Not sure where else. We always do mcguires once for lunch cuz the kids love it.

They had a fire????  Hope that sucker is up and going by October!   One of our favorite places has always been Harbor Docks which is just caddy corner from Sexton's Seafood on 98. They do one helluva breakfast if you're a breakfast fan but we are not.  We always go for lunch and in addition to their regular menu, they'll always have 4-5 lunch specials but be prepared to drop $15-20 for the special but they are always good.  They have their own fleet that goes out and catches the fish they serve so it's top notch quality and taste wise.  They are also known for their Thai food and the spring rolls are great!  Dewey Destin's behind McGuires is very good. Been there for years.  Sit's down on the water, kind of a dive looking place but the food is very good.

One more place if you're a breakfast fan, the Donut Hole is a can't miss.  My mom and dad, all their friends and my sister and her bunch swear by it.  There is one downtown Destin and one on the way to 30A.  We're just not big breakfast eaters. We'll go with cheese and a type of salami and call that good.  Our main meal is lunch.

LL is very good but have not been in years.  They're dinner only and by that time we're generally in for the night.  The Vue was recommended to us last year and we tried it and were impressed.  If I'm not mistaken they have an early dining menu as well.  Great view, great service and great food.  What we eventually decided it was a wash with the Ocean Club and we can walk to Ocean Club.

Made this today.  Been wanting to try corn on the cob on the egg, Walmart had them on sale and that's all the encouragement I needed.  ;)  Soaked them for around 45 minutes then cooked them at 350 for around 50 minutes.  Did small lobsters and shrimp.  Ate well.

Baytowne is neat to see if nothing else. We walk over there 2-3 times while we're down there.  Kind of fun to walk around Jolie Island next to it.  There's Another Broken Egg place over there we  tried year before last.  Dropped $45 on a breakfast that was mediocre  at best.  They advertise Award Winning Bloody Mary's.  I asked the waitress how the made them and she told me it was Tabasco Bloody Mary mix.  Guess award winning can be most anything you give yourself an award for.

Well we ended up staying in and cooking nearly everyday. The traffic is so horrible you can barely go anywhere unless its the middle of the afternoon. We did hit kenny d's at the recommendation of a friend. More of new orleans style seafood but I really enjoyed it. We went about 2:30 and didnt have to wait or anything. I'm a fried seafood junkie and their platter was great. Did NOT disappoint.

So no Ocean Club?  I'll check out Kenny D's because I've never heard of it.  Did you make it by Shrimpers?   We've been there once in July and it's just hot and busy but a lot people have kids in school and that's the only time they can go.  We head back in October and can't wait!

Nah. Just didnt have time. I figured out real quick that dragging around a 9&6 year old is TOUGH. But throw in a 15 month old and its a nightmare. We gonna HAVE to figure out a way to sneak off just me and the wife. Then we can hit all the places we want.

Of all the times Ive been down there, the day we went to stinkys was our first trip down 30a. I cant believe it. But it wont be our last. Also, with stinkys serving in the smaller place, get there pretty early. Think we got there about 2:30 and waited 15 minutes but after we got seated the parking lot just filled up with people waiting and it started around 3pm. People EVERYWHERE!

Hey man, July sucks.  it's just crowded and hot.  Hope Stinky's has it fixed by October but we eat early anyway.  We generally eat around 11 so we'll be good.   Just the fact the parking lot was crowded tell you all you need to know about the place.

We either go in early April or early to mid October.  You roll the dice on the weather in April while October is generally good plus, the sun sets over land in April while in October it sets out over the gulf making for some gorgeous sunsets.  One last thing, Destin during spring break is cold and crowded. Amazing how cold 50 degrees is on the beach.   Last time we were down during spring break, we pulled out of Sandestin and traffic was backed up the entire 10 miles back to town.  We made it about 100 yards and said screw this, u-turned and went the other way to Shrimpers, bought shrimp and oysters and ate in.

It's toward 30A I believe... I'm not real familiar with the territory but it's past Destin and Myramar Beach. 

Best fish tacos we had and best appetizers.  Little pricy, and the appetizers were very small portions but they were still great.

I just pulled up the menu and that's about par for the course on pricing anymore down there.  We'll give it a try for lunch one day.  These days you'll drop $15 on a oyster po'boy but if it's good it's worth it.  We'll compare it to Stinky's and go from there.    thanks

For appetizers we had the Crab and Cream Cheese Wonton and The Who Dat Shrimp.  Both only had 4 of each kind, which I thought was not much for the price, but they were extremely good.

Girlfriend had the Shrimp Tacos and I had the Pecan Crusted Grouper.  Tacos were better, but I found the place asking some of the locals where some good local places to eat were.

We also ate at Mcguires...which was my favorite place to eat on vacation.  We had the Reuben Eggrolls for an appetizer which were unbelievable along with the bread they serve you.  Tag that with a steak.... you're golden

Cannot go wrong with pecan crusted grouper.  Ocean Club has a great one.  Not a huge fish taco fan but the wife is and  Stinky's has a Taco Tuesday (or Thursday) so we go there for her.  I order a oyster po'boy and I'm good to go.  ;)  We go to the gulf for the seafood and won't touch red meat from the moment we leave Fayetteville till the time we roll back in the drive.

Nice gig!!  Post some stuff when you get back.  Never been to that part of the country but would like to make that swing up the east coast. I'd like to make a clam bake, hit a lobster pound and go to one of the restaurants where they dump a ton of crab on the table and pass out hammers.

We flew into Boston 4 yrs ago and drove up to Maine. We stayed at this oceanfront home in York. These pics are of our view. I watched the Hogs get killed by South Carolina on the laptop. The one pic shows the view from the house of Cape Neddick Nubble Lighthouse in York . We took a small boat tour of Portsmouth Harbor. Spent some time in Ogunquit. Drove up to Kennebunkport to see the Bush compound then to Portland and took the car ferry over to Peak Island and drove around the island. We had an awesome time.

I bought it at Backyard Specialities out of Springdale when I bought the egg but they have since gone out of business. I'm sure any BGE  dealer has them.  I use mine quite a bit if I'm cooking something fairly small that I want to keep off the direct fire.

4 days at a house we rented overlooking the beach below in Lincoln City. It has been fabulous. I've sat here in the viewing room on my computer drinking beer, coffee or water most of the time. We flew into Portland late last week. Drove up and spent a night in Seattle. Did the needle and waterfront and fought off the homeless begging. Then went and saw Mt Rainier, Mt St Helens and then drove the coast from Astoria to here

I love that view.  Did you spend much time on the beach?  We're kind of looking for ideas on what to do on the northwest coast and this looks nice.  I saw a show on the house hunters the other day and they were on the Oregon coast and looked great.  Maybe a stupid question but can you dig for clams there??  I want to do something I can't do here.

No idea on the clams. I've gone down and walked on the beach a few times. Mostly I've sat right here on my ass and relaxed. Public beach is below but no more than 10 or 12 people at any time are out there. I've enjoyed the hell out of watching the dogs people bring play and have the time of their lives. Also fun to watch people without front wheel drive or 4 wheel drive get stuck in the sand. At least three or four a day have needed to get a tow. I went into town twice. Wife has been all over including over to Salem and Eugene retracing her family roots. I've been happy as hell maintaining a buzz and being mesmerized by the sight and sound of the ocean.

4 days at a house we rented overlooking the beach below in Lincoln City. It has been fabulous. I've sat here in the viewing room on my computer drinking beer, coffee or water most of the time. We flew into Portland late last week. Drove up and spent a night in Seattle. Did the needle and waterfront and fought off the homeless begging. Then went and saw Mt Rainier, Mt St Helens and then drove the coast from Astoria to here



We love the Oregon Coast.  We usually stay a little further up the coast in Arch Cape (just south of Cannon Beach).  We have a fantastic place we stay at right on the water.  Also, the food in Portland scene is insanely good. (second photo is me watching the hogs game against TCU last year)

Cool pics.

We just got back home to Texas. I enjoyed the Oregon coast but still prefer Northern California from Bodega Bay down to Big Sur. We've been to that area multiple times. I've now been to every coastal area in the US except for Southern California and the Miami area and Northern Cal is where my oceanfront vacations will primarily be from this point on.

If anyone is interested, here is the piece I wrote for a local food blog on my EatMaine trip.

I was also spent last weekend eating my way through Kansas City, a town I haven't visited since I was a kid.
