Sam-I-Am, We Have a Project!

I will probably be altering my Fathers Day cooking plans. Tomorrow I have an egg assembly project. I finally took the plunge after years of wanting.



I think I got a good bargin too, $900.00 total for the large and nest!

I have decided to smoke two very meaty slabs (each cut in 1/2) of baby-back ribs. About 3-4 hours, low and slow. Removed the membrane and they are chilling in the marinade right now. They will get dried well and have a rub applied before going in the BGE. Apple wood smoke to be applied!

The BGE is supposed to make temperature control very easy. I'm looking forward to a report and pics.

You shall have both! I can't tell you how many years I have been wanting one of these beasts! I almost bought a small about a year ago, until I found out there are very few accessories for that size. I've been busting my hump, working two jobs and finally saved enough to buy this one.

I loaded up a chimney with hardwood charcoal and soaked a handful of apple chunks. Once the coals were ready, they and the soaked chunks went into the egg. Got the plate setter and grill grate in place, closed the lid. Gave the egg a little time to warm up the made the adustments to maintain 230 F. Let it run at that temp for a half hour and then put the ribs in. Within a couple minutes the temp was right back at 230 F. Checked the ribs every hour by just lifting the lid a little. Never saw the temp change. After 3 hours the ribs were ready. For 3-1/2 hours the egg maintained temp. I'll wager it had at least another 3 hours on that one load of fuel. I must say I'm impressed and very pleased with the unit.

The results.
