    Electric starter vs starter cubes

    Never used an electric starter, but with a starter cube light one in the center for low and slow, and bring to temp slowly. Kind of like the old saying “aim small, miss small” when shooting for low temps! Also, have fun, and don’t sweat a “magic number” let it settle anywhere between 220-265ish and Let it ride!
  3. Started this one out by smoking a whole bird @~235 , pulled it off and pulled it, and added it back to the chili in the Dutch oven, also made a unique avocado and tomatillo crèma. It was really, really tasty!

    Smoked White chicken chili

    Raw, I think it may be better roasted though

    Smoked White chicken chili

    Ha funny thing about that picture is there’s nothing cooking on the grill when i took it . The chicken was resting and I hadn’t started on the actual chili yet lol
  6. I cross hatched the meat side of this but down about a half - 3/4 of an inch then added the rub (honey hog and red pepper flakes) couldnt really tell tell a difference but, if you don’t try, how will you know? Ha!

    Anyone just experiment for fun?

    Maybe? Not much for sure, also part of the “Experiment” was to give it a few spritz throughout the cook (not something I normally bother doing.) it was still pretty moist though.
  9. This one was great! sausage, eggs, cheese and hashbrowns with bacon jam to finish. Incredible.

    Took the new Red Kettle for a whirl.

    As much as I enjoy doing fancy/different cooks, at the end of the day, a good burger with plain ‘ol Tater chips is hard to beat.
  11. Spartchcocked a a 5lb chicken today. Brined with salt, water, meat church’s the gospel and minced garlic for about 6 hrs, then patted it dry and hit it with their season all and a little more garlic. Finished by brushing with Stubbs bbq sauce. Turned out great!
  12. Never tried it, although I plan too. Right now the mrs and youngest daughter (1yo) are having to cut out dairy for digestive reasons
  13. I cooked between 350/375. Skin had a good texture. Obviously it wasn’t super crispy when basting on bbq sauce, but it maintained a slight crispness with great flavor
  14. Three on some meatballs for an easy Sunday night dinner, tuned out really well!

    They were really good,really simple though. Just ground beef Italian sausage blen. S&P garlic powder and Italian seasoning with some Parmesan and ritz crackers

    Skirt steak and roast veggies

    That’s a fantastic pic of everything on the grill! Looks delicious!
  18. Looks like a Komodo, as far as the tile, but looks like it has a gas hookup https://chattanooga.craigslist.org/bar/d/kamado-grill-smoker/6443923722.html

    Craigslist find: name that grill

    I don’t really have a desire for it, just thought it was interesting
  20. Super easy and so good. Also have squash bacon onion and Parmesan stuffed zucchini! Had a “stuff it” challenge on our local Facebook group. Fun dish that will now be a regular rotation since the three year old loved it!
  21. Wings for the Super Bowl. Made a traditional buffalo and my favorite: hot honey mustard! smoked them at 200 till around 110 ish IT then deep fried them. Turned out fantastic, though if I was making them for just me I would have turned up the heat a little!
  22. Haven’t posted any in awhile, mainly have been sharing in a local fb group (looking to add members lol) but here’s some cooks. Ribs with smoked slaw Some smash burgers and a blackened shrimp po’ boy for the cast iron challenge on the fb group

    Some recent cooks

    It was fantastic. I cored out the stem, and filled with a olive oil bbq seasoning and garlic. Smoked it for a little over 2 hrs. Then, chopped it and made a slaw out of it with all that wonderful goodness.
